Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Only a masochist would admit to being a Gooner in this day and age. :zipper_mouth_face:


#2067

It’s naïve. Liverpool promised the same shit to Joe Cole who went to play centrally and got wing’d or benched soon after. Jimmy Milner I think turned down a new City contract because he didn’t want to be an undervalued utility man, now a right footed left back.

Wanting to play for a position rather than for a team, club or coach feels flawed to me. So much can change.


#2068

Ya it’s selfish you play where you need to play. Except at Arsenal, where Wenger picks your position out of a hat.


#2069

I meant Ox.


#2070

He may be naive, but I would also question who created this messy situation and what made him turning down a bigger pay check and a place that he is familiar with, to a totally new place?


#2071

No mate, things were well and truly fucked the moment the club offered Wenger a new contract. Wenger’s golden boys leaving is just another confirmation of the fact that there is not sign of things improving, and they won’t for the foreseeable future.

On the plus side, at least now we will have one less player playing out of position, hopefully.


#2072

Not at all, as he wasn’t one our best and most loved players.


#2073

Good luck OX wishing the kid all the best - just glad he turned down the plastics for the scousers - slightly easier to stomach.

No real loss to us and opens up space for someone else in the team (Reiss-Nelson) not to mention the ridiculous wage bill.


#2074

Not bothered hes gone at all. Think were ever he plays he will enjoy his football more under Klopp though. The games simpler and be more enjoyable for a player like him.


#2075

I’d laugh my bollocks off if he pulled his hamstring during his first team debut , especially in the warm up.


#2076

Anyway
Didn’t think Ox would have been purchased for a heavy amount.
Didn’t think Ox would have generated even 25m given he has just one year left in contract.

Turns out this window is really bizarre.
Sucks to lose him when he is finallly getting himself sorted but 40m for him was not something I considered before. This was a proper ‘bite off the hand’ before they withdraw moment.

#2078

stop it


#2079

Or a beret in Wenger’s case.


#2080

When a player Wenger talked about being the future of the club and team joins Liverpool just a week later. Fucking hell, this is some weird shit.


#2081

I actually blame Perrie for this. She dated Zayn - he quit One Direction. She dated Ox - he quit Arsenal.

Can only hope she has a thing for old men and goes for Arsene Wenger next!


#2082

redemption for them selling us Jimmy Carter Ash.


#2083

So where’s our instagram message telling us how much he loved his time at Arsenal, thanking all the supporters? :heart_eyes: I mean I know he’s busy but this is 2017, it’s going to happen in the next few hours right?


#2084

Lol , Stroller , that’s a name from the past .
