I don't have a problem not playing him. It's just obvious that the previous regime made a mistake in offering him a new contract because they were afraid of losing him for free.
Yeah it doesn't seem like a great decision in hindsight, but I think the important thing now for Arsenal is just to get as much as they can for him, and move him off the wage bill for sure. Losing Ramsey on a free isn't great either, but like I said sometimes it works out to chop off the biggest head (e.g. Coutinho).

Spurs 3 - 1 Leicester

Good game that, Tottenham are continuing to prove many wrong and you have to say they are back in the title race now (though I'm glad our final game against them is at Anfield).

Little chance they are finishing any lower than 3rd this season.

A £50m 'World Class' CDM apparently... #-o
Even Idrissa Gueye would have at least fouled Sterling there.

Oh? How has he been doing? Judging from the stats, it looks like he's been playing regularly.

He has, but in Benfica B. Probably in the last year the contract he gets promoted to the first squad, to valorize a bit before being transferred to another league. £€$ talks. This new coach, Lage, has been promoting some young players a bit faster, though.
