Aaron Ramsey’s catalogue of spectacular goals rivals anyone else’s in history

The Arsenal star produced another example of sublime finishing in the win over CSKA Moscow

If Aaron Ramsey was English he’d have 80 caps for his country.

There, I said it.

Because we might well be talking about the most under appreciated midfielder in the Premier League.

Yesterday Ramsey showcased yet another example of breathtaking finishing in Arsenal’s 5-1 drubbing of Fulham.

But we really shouldn’t be that surprised by the audacity of the strike.

After all, Ramsey has been producing sublime goals for quite some time now.

The best goalscoring midfielder in the country?

Ever since the Welsh midfielder semi-morphed into prime Frank Lampard during the 2013/14 season – when he scored eight times by the end of November – some of his goals have not only been breathtaking, but also diverse in their execution.

In that breakthrough season, he memorably scored an unstoppable 25-yard dipping half volley against Liverpool and then finished after a jinking run against Norwich just weeks later.

On the final day of that season the Canaries again were his victims, firing a ridiculous volley into the top corner from Olivier Giroud’s cross.

In December of 2014 Ramsey produced arguably the best goal of his career so far, striking a sensational 30-yard effort with his weaker left foot in the Champions League against Galatasaray.

But there’s more to the 27-year-old than stunning strikes.

He’s also the man for the big occasion, scoring two FA Cup final winners and conjuring a brilliant flick against Tottenham in the north London derby two seasons ago.

Ramsey will mark a decade at Arsenal this summer and has reached the 50 mark for both goals and assists in that time.

Not bad for a midfielder whose career has been plagued by gruesome injuries.

So why isn’t he fully respected at the Emirates?
