From the Grauniad’s Young Players of the Season review:

“Emery, since his appointment in October, has transformed Aston Villa from relegation candidates to European qualification. Central to Villa’s resurgence has been Jacob Ramsey, who has started every game but one (a home defeat to Arsenal) since 13 January. Many consider the 21-year-old midfielder unlucky to have missed out on a first senior England call-up last week, such has been the dynamism of the Villa academy graduate, who is a combative presence and goal threat in a roving No 8 role. Ramsey marked his 100th appearance for Villa at Anfield last weekend with a goal in a 1-1 draw to take him to six goals and five assists for the season. The future is bright in B6, with Ramsey at the heart of things.”

They obviously wrote it before this weekend and couldn’t be arsed to update the stats before publishing.

AJ played in a similar role for Boro but what I saw his game was more about passing and picking gaps than running with the ball. All I'm really getting at is that I think they'd play well together rather than trying to do the same things in the same space. AJs England position is where I think he'll play long term.
This is how I saw A. Ramsey. He was taking the ball in tight spaces & threading through lovely balls into space behind or to a team-mate. He also made a lot of late runs into the box to receive the ball & had some very good chances from doing that. Plus, he scored & assisted a load by doing all of the above. He did run with the ball, but it wasn't the same driving runs forward like J. Ramsey does. I think A. Ramsey is more of a natural 10 & could be the natural replacement for Buendia in the future. If he bulks up like J. Ramsey has, he could become a very very serious player.

Which one of his team mates calls him a twat?!

Sounds like Konsa

I’m sure there’s a clip of Smith welcoming the players back for preseason training and he goes up to Jacob Ramsey and grabs his biceps.  That summer he filled out massively and became a bit of a monster compared to the wispy player in his first proper season.  The extra pace and strength really added to his game.

Doubt it’s any hardship for the Ramsey’s to bulk up, what with Dad being an ex-boxer and all that
