Arsenal fans rip into 26-year-old liability on Twitter after Lincoln display
By Matt Farr
Aaron Ramsey found the back of the net as Arsenal breezed past Lincoln with a 5-0 win in the FA Cup sixth round on Saturday – but fans on Twitter were far from satisfied with his overall display.
Arsenal booked their place at Wembley in the semi-finals of the competition thanks to goals from Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and an own goal from Luke Waterfall, despite a slow start to the game.
But Arsenal fans on Twitter, including celebrity fan Piers Morgan, were left frustrated at another poor display from Ramsey, and branded the Wales international midfielder as a liability.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Ramsey, 26, had contributed just one goal and two assists from 19 appearances in all competitions ahead of the Lincoln clash, a return that has caused great concern among Arsenal fans.
The midfielder was a huge hit with the club after a breathtaking campaign during the 2013-14 season, where he scored 16 goals and supplied 10 assists; but he has struggled to reach such heights since.
There has been talk of a major squad overhaul during the summer with Arsene Wenger potentially leaving his post at the end of his contract, and a number of fans have thrown Ramsey’s name into the hat as a potential sacrificial lamb.
