I love Aaron Ramsey. I love him like a little brother. So when he gets a bit of unfair stick from Gooners (and he has done) it gets my back up and I have to defend him.
Now don't get me wrong, I see the flaws in his game like everyone else. He isn't perfect and to be honest he probably hasn't had the best of seasons.
Of course people have an opinion on everything, that is the beauty of freedom of speech, and if they want to criticise Aaron in a fair way (not a golf course fairway) then so be it.
But when I see him being slaughtered like the way we ironed out S*urs at the Emirates, I do feel sorry for the boy.
And that is all Ramsey is really. A boy. A lad who has a career-threatening injury already at his age due to some caveman who snapped his leg into pieces.
Think back to before Aaron suffered his leg-break. He was coming on stronger than a world champion weightlifter and becoming a first choice in the team. His progress was astounding.
That progression has been put back a couple of years due to his injury and, to be honest he was hung out to dry a little in the last campaign.
In my opinion the Welshman was overplayed. He looked jaded from February and Arsene Wenger must take a share of the blame.
In defence of Wenger though, the injury to Jack Wilshere had a big influence on Ramsey being more overplayed more than my Barbie Girl cassette.
Nobody, not even medical experts or Stephan Hawking, could put a time scale on Jack's injury. Well, nobody would have known he was out for the whole season anyway.
So whilst Wilshere was expected to be back at any time, poor old Ramsey was being flogged like an old horse. And his performances suffered.
Now I think that Aaron will be much better next season. And stronger too. This was his first full season since his leg was broken.
I wonder though whether he would be best off on loan somewhere to get a bit of confidence back because to me it looked like he had lost some.
I have every faith in him becoming the top player that he was progressing into one day. And I believe he will achieve those goals wearing an Arsenal shirt.
But I think he could do with a bit of 'freedom' (not from George Michael) to help his progression.
When he makes a mistake playing for the Gunners you can hear the moans and groans from Jupiter. And I worry in case he is becoming a bit of a scapegoat. And we seem to like having a scapegoat recently.
At times the support from Gooners this season has been unbelievable. Its definitely been the best year we've had at the Emirates. Most of the time the place was rocking more than a Rolling Stones concert.
As for the away Gooners, best in the land by far.
There is still that little element, borne out of frustration, that gets on certain players backs. Ramsey is one of them.
I know he can frustrate. I get frustrated too, but I can't have a major pop because he plays for Arsenal and it kills me to have a dig at anything Arsenal related.
Maybe he would be best off on loan, to another premier league club, to help him get his confidence back and be able to grow under less pressure?
Then maybe a rejuvenated boy can become the player and man we thought he would be.
