Somewhat surprising news. Arsenal have beaten Manchester United to the signing of Cardiff's Aaron Ramsey, BBC Sport is saying. £5m with no loan back option.

Surprising? What is this guy's potential?

^He's being built up as the new Ryan Giggs. Left footed, a winger, skilful and Welsh. Of course, those are some big shoes to fill.

It's surprising because it's been a long time since we beat Manchester United to a player we both wanted. United can usually outbid us easily. The only one I can think of is Sol Campbell when he was the hottest Bosman around in the summer of 2002.

United were so sure they signed him they put the announcement up on their website ...

He'll play. If he's good enough, and I think he will be, he'll see time. He definitely gets slotted straight into the League and early FA Cup sides and gets a good look. Age is never a barrier to the first team, skill is.

and yet at ARSENAL, Eboue gets more games on the right wing than Walcott.

We have a saying at Arsenal - Arsene Knows. Eboue played more because he added defensive balance to the team when Sagna and makeshift right-back Toure start bombing forward.

Theo has shown the contribution he can make to the team already, and Ramsey will be no different.

Anyway, I don't care, it's not often we sign a player right out from under United's noses, especially when they were showing off about agreeing a fee with Cardiff for him on their own website.

Man, how far has Ronaldinho fallen? 2 years ago, there was no one like him - now he's not even in the team's plans unless he shows "he wants to be the player he can be" (read: he needs a serious fucking attitude adjustment).

What is his problem? I"ve heard reports of a divided, clique-y Barca locker room, one such clique led by Ronaldinho and that he likes to party - can anyone shed any light on what he's done to not even factor in to Barca's plans?
