I say without a doubt the story of this season so far has been Aaron Ramsey's breakout performance. I can't remember the last time a player rose from seemingly nowhere to play at this level. How do you rate him overall as a player? And with he and Bale now, do you think Wales might be able to qualify for Euro 2016?

Potentially world class player.

If Bale and Ramsey had chosen to play for England, England would be quite a team.

Why would they CHOOSE England if they are Welsh? They still have Welsh accents for gods sake!

Maybe if they wanted more chance of success at international level? Lots of British players opt to not play for their British country of birth for different reasons.

MOST people from the home nations would choose to play for their country.

They'd get more recognition if they played for England, that is true.

But seriously, England is a freaking joke.

England isn't a great national team but they usually qualify for the major tournaments. Bale and Ramsey would at least get to play in a World Cup.

You are clutching at straws, it is hypothetical - they play proudly for Wales.
