Ramsey's return a ray of hope for Gunners

Arsenal may have been left feeling down and out after their FA Cup exit at the weekend at the hands of United, who ran out 2-0 winners at Old Trafford, but there was one beacon of hope for the Gunners and reason for the fans to feel cheerful. That hope came in the form of a return to action for Aaron Ramsey, who appeared for the club for the first time since his horror leg break inflicted by a nasty challenge from Ryan Shawcross last February when the Gunners turned out against Stoke.

With the Welshman introduced with Arsenal chasing the game on Saturday, the Gunners fans nevertheless made their feelings towards the midfielder heard, with the player's name the subject of vocal chants ringing around the stadium.

Even though Ramsey has missed a substantial period of the Gunners' recent efforts on European and domestic fronts, and has been battling back to fitness with Cardiff and Nottingham Forest, it seems as if he has been around on the footballing scene for ages now, perhaps due to the fact that the media have used him as an example time and again when assessing the overly physical state of Premier League football at the moment. However, it's worth remembering that Ramsey is still only 20 years of age and is yet to reach the peak of his career age-wise and those following the footballbetting will realise this.

With the player keen to shrug off doubts that he will ever be able to eradicate the mental scars left from suffering such a horrific injury on the field of play, the player stating that the injury doesn't even cross his mind when he's on the pitch, it's clear that the Welshman still believes he has a big role to play for club and country as he looks to get his career firmly back on track and pundits like Andy Gray are backing him to succeed..

With Jack Wilshere making himself a real contender for young player of the season, and perhaps for player of the season, it looks like the future is bright at the Emirates, even if this season doesn't end with silverware.
