I didn’t really want to spend any time on the bloke that is called Piers Morgan. But as yesterday Aaron Ramsey showed what a strong person he is I think it is appropriate to mention this incident.
Now this Mr. Moron (oh a typo but I just leave it like that if you don’t mind) is a celebrity Arsenal fan. And he calls Aaron Ramsey ‘Whatshisname’. Probably because when Aaron Ramsey was working his long and hard way back from his terrible injury a few seasons ago our Mr. Moron was very much on his back. He said all kinds of ugly things about him.
Mr. Moron proclaimed that Aaron Ramsey was shit, would be shit and was never good enough to be an Arsenal player. And as he is a celebrity fan his opinion is valued by those who don’t have the brain to think for themselves. So we remembered in those days a lot of aaa-type Gooners repeating his every word about Ramsey and state it as ‘FACT’ and followed by Wenger out because he was the one that kept on believing that Ramsey would come good.
It was the days that aaa-type Gooners repeated the Moron’s tweets with hoping that Ramsey would break another leg and be forced to stop playing football. Tweets that made me livid at the time.
Mr. Moron, as a media man and opinion maker of the lesser-brained people was playing a foul game against Aaron Ramsey.
But yesterday after the match against Chelsea he offered to shake hands with Ramsey. And Ramsey said he didn’t want to do this. Now Mr. Moron who as a celebrity is probably getting used to getting his way pretended not to be bothered by this refusal of the handshake by Ramsey. But if it didn’t bother him at all as he pretended, then why tweet about it.
Here are a few of the tweets of Mr. Moron: “Just bumped into Whatshisname. Offered him the hand of peace…but he declined. Fair enough”
Now why on earth does he feel the need to call Aaron Ramsey ‘Whathisname’? That is the first question that springs to my mind. I sense there is some bad feeling from the Moron his part. Probably because Aaron ‘Whathisname’ Ramsey proved that his opinion on football is as valid as that of a brain dead person.
But then he tries to spin it a bit with another tweet: “On a positive note, Whatshisname had a good game today. My motivational tweets continue to pay dividends. #afc”
So after years of slagging him off he admits that Ramsey had a good game. But to make things completely ridiculous and pompous our Moron claims that this is down to him slagging him off all those years. What a pretentious person to think that. If Ramsey turned out the player he is and will be in the future it has nothing to do with what a moron with a keyboard has said. It is down to first and for all the player himself working his way back from what could have been a game ending injury. But and here is the twist of course it is also down to one person in particular in keeping the faith and believing in Ramsey… Arsène Wenger indeed.
As someone asked if Ramsey said anything our Mr. Moron tweeted this: “He said: ‘I don’t think I want to do that’ > RT @GangsterGooner: @piersmorgan did he say anything to you or just completely blank you”
Ramsey clearly is not someone who will be pushed around by someone and not even when this person is a celebrity. Good one Aaron! If you want respect you got to earn it. And by using your celebrity status to slag people off is not a way to earn respect.
But what can you expect from someone who just cemented new camaraderie with people like Jeremy Clarkson. I hope they smash each other in the face. This is what he had to tweet about it : “Busy old day. Resolved spat with @BobWilsonBWSC, cemented new camaraderie with @JeremyClarkson – but hit brick wall with Whatshisname. #afc”
But if that is what it needs to be a celebrity (insulting as much people as you can) then I don’t mind to do it also. Who knows maybe one day I will also become a celebrity.
But what really made me write this article was this tweet from our Moron: “Arsenal fans do make me chuckle. They ALL slagged off Whatshisname when he played so badly for 2 seasons.”
No, Mr. Moron. We not ALL slagged Ramsey off in those days. In fact lots of Arsenal fans did what a real supporter did in those days. In those days I have written rather a lot of articles in support of Ramsey. And I know that many on Untold supported me and Tony in defending Ramsey and help him in his recovery.
Because we understood the difficulty for this young man who saw his career almost in ruins after that terrible tackle. We understood that it might have been the end for him. And in such times supporters needed to support him. And many of us did. Only morons slagged him off. Guided by your ‘shining example’.
And then to think that it was your hacking him down that motivated him to get better…. to think like that you really need to be a moron.
Thank God, Wenger stick with him and gave him time to develop and come back. Thank God, Wenger didn’t listen to your expertise. And thank God that Ramsey developed in to a great player and even more important to a great human being. A strong character also. And if I may remind you that in those days that Ramsey was struggling to come back he also lost one of the managers that also had great believe in him, Gary Speed the Wales manager who tragically killed himself.
A young man, breaking his leg that could have ended his career, still in doubt of being able to come back, losing one of his mentors around that time and you just hacked him down even more. Shame on you, Mr. Moron.
And a big thank you for all those real supporters who supported Aaron in those days and who stuck with him. I’m sure that us simple, non-celebrity Gooners are more closer to Ramsey his heart than a pompous celebrity fan. And as a big Ramsey fan all through the bad years I feel very happy that Ramsey did what he did. And he shows once again that the negativity does hurt the players and doesn’t help them at all. Support helps. Support given by Wenger and the real supporters. That is what Ramsey helped to recover. And support is what we at Untold will offer for Arsenal players and manager. Because we are supporters.
