Ramires: Ancelotti has faith in me

"I accept being a substitute in the Champions League against Marseilles. It is normal because I am the last one that has arrived and besides I know that the coach does many rotations throughout the season.“I know that my manager Carlo Ancelotti and my team-mates have confidence in me”Ramires "I know that I have received some criticism for losing the ball that resulted in Carlos Tevez scoring the goal for Manchester City but that does not worry me.

we're still waiting the best of u ram

He's been more effective for us than Joe Cole has for Liverpool :whistling:

One could argue that he was £17m more expencieve.

Anyway,he's new and young and mistakes are expected,can't believe he's already come under heavy criticism,I've seen some calling him the new Veron.Ridiculous.

Here's an interview with Ramires (and Alex-ish) http://www.thenational.ae/sport/football/chelseas-toughnuts-from-brazil

Ask about the differences between English football and the Latin game and Alex steps in. "A lot," laughs the centre-back.

"That's true, a lot," agrees Ramires. "But I think the biggest difference is the contact because the pitches are smaller and the contacts are really tough. I'm not saying in Portugal that there is no contact, but there, maybe because the pitches are bigger, there is less of it. Like it, I don't. But I have to get used to it. It's obligatory."

Back to Alex, a 6ft 2ins centre-back who has never been described as thin. "And referees they let it go, eh? he grins. "I told Ramires to 'arrive'. Because here there are no fouls."

Ramires, falling into his team-mate's double act, says: "Alex told me if the guys come to bother me he will take care of me. "Yeah, I will defend him," concludes Alex.

I will always love Ramires as a player, but the way he left Benfica puts a sour taste in my mouth. I mean heres his first words when he signed with the club...

"I just want to make history in Benfica. Be it for the 5 years in my contract or by appearing in every game and playing well, then I certainly I will make history here. We all know that in football you will receive good offers if you play well. I can always improve during my career and I don't plan to stay just one season at Benfica. I intend to stay here for 5 years, and who knows, maybe even renew later. Benfica is a great club that every player wants to represent. Whoever is here, needs to make the most of it. I just think I need to do my job and keep trying to get better. I am here to improve as a player and further my career. I had no intention on coming here and leaving the next day."

Clearly he did not own up to those words mad.gif

Settle down, every player says that in those circumstances, but we all know the agents control those things. Plus, it was common knowledge at the time Benfica bought him there was a pre-arrangement with the agent that he would only stay 1-2 years at Benfica, why do you think they sold 50% back to the agent a few months before he was sold to Chelsea.

Anyways, I loved him at Benfica and he did make some history there didn't he? He will definitely grow into his role at Chelsea and I see him being a fan favorite by this time next season. We haven't seen the best of him yet and we'll be very satisfied when we do.

What actually happened to him tho? He wasn't even on the bench against Liverpool and Sala (who's never been in the first team squad) was. After 30 seconds, Mikel was booked for being stupid again and he's treading on thin ice with 90 mins to go.

Mystery....

Gotta play him with Essien and Lamps. I've never been convinced with Essien and Mikel in the same team really. The energy to get up and down just aint there.

Comparing Mikel and Ramires is stupid.

They both play in different positions for starters and Mikel is much more important in the team. Ramires and Essien must battle for their positions, not Mikel and Ramires.

Ramires offers more to the team than Mikel does. Mikel is out of form, whereas Ramires is playing well and in great form.

we missed rams energy badly on sunday

Mikel is a DM though. His role is to not go beyond the half way line (more or less), he's there to provide cover for Ashley Cole & Bosingwa when they bomb forward. Ramires is much more on the other half, his energy and enthusiasm is designed for the role we've got Essien in right now, attacking mid.

Ramires gets forward and he is another midfielder who wants to get into the penalty area. I think Mikel is a better player now but Ramires will make a bigger impact in an attacking sense, if we play with Ramires and Lampard then that automatically changes the opposing teams midfield strategy.
