Ramsey banner to be displayed at Emirates on Saturday

A banner of Aaron Ramsey is set to be displayed at the Emirates Stadium this Saturday during Arsenal’s Premier League match against Burnley.

The 19-year-old was on the receiving end of a horrific challenge from Stoke City’s Ryan Shawcross on Saturday evening, with the Welshman sustaining fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg.

Gunners supporters group REDaction have ordered an 18ft by 15ft banner which should be in place for the weekend’s league game. The design idea originated from popular Arsenal forum ‘The Online Gooner’.

To help pay for it, they are accepting donations, large or small. They will get Aaron Ramsey to sign it, and when he is playing football again they will give it away to one of the people that contributed towards it. Think of it as a raffle, for a good cause, with a great prize.

If you’re interested in making a donation towards the banner, click here to visit REDaction’s official website.

Is it possible to put up a version of the banner in a higher resolution. Would love to have it on my desktop!

should the payments make a profit, will the surplus go to a good cause say AFC’s charity of the season?

I wonder what would Eduardo and Diaby feel when they see this at the stadium. I mean, when they had their injury, the fans didn’t do anything like this to them. Could make them feel less important than Ramsey though

Excellent work, I’ll be sending a cheque.

If they make a profit I don’t see why RedAction can’t just keep the cash for their next big expense.

Absolutely heartbreaking injury to witness for young Aaron and all at Arsenal. Just want to wish you all the best for the remainder of the season, and wish Aaron a speedy and full recovery CTID

Btw, Mr Song is King, you make an interesting point – but I think the near-obsessive chanting of Eduardo’s name since his injury made our sentiments quite clear to him. Diaby perhaps wasn’t shown such support, but it’s feasible that the less graphic nature of his injury meant that it didn’t get as much attention – plus we didn’t have such an established, organised RedAction back then. I don’t think either player will feel left out by this banner.

Thanks Gooner Chris, reciprocal link now added. There’ll be more on GfL once I’ve calmed down a bit.

I think the reason for no similar banners for Abou Diaby and Eduardo may have been that AFC had a ban on all banners at those times. Has it been completely lifted now, or is permission for this one for Aaron a one-off?

Thats Sterling’s career down the pot then, joining pool with one of the worst academys in england.

@ highbury fields..

He’s probably a party boy or something. Wenger won’t sign any player that doesnt have a temperament he deems worthy of being a professional athlete. If we havent signed him, he’s probably not good enough.

@ Bruno Silva

‘One’ denotes him being unique. ‘There’s only one Aaron Ramsey’, with variations on the players’ name has been sung in English football since the early seventies.

While it would take a particularly special brand of cynicism to suggest Ryan Shawcross meant to snap Aaron Ramsey’s leg in two, it’s not the first time Stoke have had to don their excuse-making trousers for their centre-half. You might recall last season Shawcross making ‘an impression’ on Emmanuel Adebayor’s ankle, which you can inspect here – http://www.twitvid.com/3BCE0. Note where on the field the ‘tackle’ takes place. Shawcross wasn’t even booked for that one. Fortunately for all concerned, Adebayor was back in action a couple of weeks after that one, but Francis Jeffers wasn’t quite so lucky. For Jeffers was… Read more »

Excellent idea re Aaron Ramsey; and I will contribute £10. A further idea is a number of banners showing: ‘PULIS ANTI FOOTBALL’ at the Burnley match. I consider Pulis more at fault than Shawcross for his brutal coaching methods. I blame his coaching for Shawcross’ actions in all respects.

We need 100 – 200 ‘PULIS ANTI FOOTBALL’ posters in front of TV cameras at the Emirates. How can we get them?

Ya Im not going to make the Burnley game but those anti-football banners would be epic… The most sweet thing from our bittersweet win against those mugs was Cesc telling that C**t Pulis to shut his mouth.! Epic!

This is an amazing gesture, great stuff, gutted I wont be there to see it. But isn’t it a bit unfortunate to choose a picture of Rambo that looks like both his legs have been amputated? Obviously i’m the only one to have noticed.

A great idea but sadly an awful design. Looks like the Austrian flag with Aarons picture on it.

Agree. Does anyone else think the banner looks like he’s had both legs amputated?

Shouldn’t we have a Ryan Shawcross banner instead? You know, because he’s the real victim of this incident and we football-following-lager-chugging-woman-cheating good old fashioned Englishmen should show our solidarity.
