During the 2013–14 Premier League season, Aaron Ramsey developed into one of Arsenal's most influential players.[96] Arsenal's manager Arsène Wenger has described Ramsey as a "complete midfielder," and stated: "I was a midfielder, and I would have loved to have had what he has. He can defend, he can attack, he can score goals. What more do you want?"[97] Ramsey was rewarded for his outstanding form during the 2013–14 season by being named Arsenal's Player of the Season.[98]

Following the dispersal of the estates of the abbey into lay hands in the second half of the sixteenth century, enclosure at Ramsey and neighbouring parishes gathered momentum. Systematic drainage of the Great Level from the seventeenth century increased the area for hay and pasture which was progressively divided and allotted.
