The emergence of Aaron Ramsey this season has been nothing short of monumental for Arsenal Football Club.
The Welshman, who had his ability questioned by many (including myself) last season, has truly come into his own this term and dominated the Premier League.
Last season he scored just two goals for the club, this term he already has 13 and now Barcelona are being linked with his signature.
But he was showing signs of his improvement toward the end of last season - he even won the Arsenal Player of the Month award for May as they clawed their way into fourth spot ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.
But he didn’t have to go and monopolise it after that.
The midfielder has now won the award an astonishing five times on the bounce - after claiming November’s award ahead of Per Mertesacker and Wojciech Szczesny.
This month he has been in good form - scoring goals against Liverpool and Cardiff, the latter as part of a sensational solo display, so he is certainly worthy of the award.
He can now add November to May, August, September and October as a vast majority of Arsenal fans continue to happily eat humble pie regarding the Welsh wizard.
He seems to have finally recovered from the psychological scars received after that horror leg break against Stoke City - and seems to finally now be playing with no fear.
His five in a row is unprecedented and with a good start to December under his belt already, he might just manage to repeat the feat this month.
