Ox gives much needed lift to downcast Arsenal fans

Yes I know that it might be a little bit petty and small minded for Arsenal fans to take some pleasure from the suffering of others, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a former player who showed our club no love or respect when forcing his transfer to our Premier League rivals Liverpool during the summer transfer window, so that makes him fair game in my book.

It would be a wonderful world if everyone could get along with one another and be happy for those players who decided that Arsenal was not the place for them, but that is not the way it is, and so the Oz along with the likes of Robbing van Pursestrings and Cashley Cole will never be forgiven by most Gooners.

It would also be nice if the players that were still part of Arsenal FC had given us fans plenty of reasons to be cheerful so we did not have to look elsewhere for some sort of lift, but once again that is not the way the world is right now, so we are forced to take solace in whatever we can and right now the sorry situation of the Ox at his new club is working wonders for me.

As reported by Metro, Jurgen Klopp has dealt another blow to the ego of the former Gunner by explaining that he has now changed his mind about playing the England international in central midfield and that was reportedly the main reason he wanted to leave us and go to Anfield.

The German said, ‘I would say there has been no consistency until now. We let him run so far, let him do what he is naturally good at and it will take time but it’s all good. He is obviously powerful and that is what we need.

‘At the moment his best position is more the wing that the No 8. Without training, playing in the middle of the park doesn’t make sense.

‘I was not only happy about his offensive situations [against Manchester United], I also liked the way he reacted after we lost the ball.

‘At this moment he is training only on the wing so it is clear. It can never be without training as a No.8 first.

‘It wouldn’t be good for him, it wouldn’t be good for us.

‘For now it makes more sense to pick him in the more offensive positions. But it is not fixed for the next five years.’

Chamberlain´s ‘dream’ move to Liverpool seems to be turning out to be a bit of a nightmare. He is not going to get the central position he wanted and is not even starting in his less favoured role either and has yet to be on the winning side since his transfer. Altogether now, aaaahhhh…

  1. Was hoping for a spurs European rape case but I guess those are reserved for Arsenal..

  2. Sue says:

    I thought he’d start tonight against Maribor…. gutted Ox ?

    1. Sue says:

      And yes Cashley & RVP make my blood boil ?

  3. stubill says:

    Looks like the scouse scum are doing well without him, 0-4 at Maribor at half time.

    I know Maribor are a pub team, and he couldn’t even get a start against them!

    Tottenham and ‘fraud’ peps man city reminding me what could have been

    Sad times

    Schadenfreude. Deriving
    pleasure from others failure.
    But who really is living
    in the pleasure dome?
    Millions of AFC fans on job seekers allowance
    or Ox who is young, rich, famous and adored
    by millions especially the ladies?
    Meanwhile our team is littered with
    under performing overpaid hacks.
    Fans of the clubs where Wellbeck Debuchy
    Chambers Xhaka Gabriel +Perez came from will be laughing
    at us for paying big money for their donkeys as they sing
    “we want you to stay we want you to stay
    Arsene Wenger we want you to stay”
    Schadenfreude “It cuts both ways” Gloria E 🙂

    1. Sue says:

      I’m not on jobseekers! You forgot to mention the amount of time ox has on the bench ?

  6. sanmi.marvellous says:

    How does Ox travail gives us a lift ?
    We should be winning matches and trophies before we can make jest of him.

    By the way, what happens if he scores goal that knocks us out of FA Cup, which I keep dreaming of every other night ? He would have had a better last laughter.

  7. TheArsenalWay says:

    I cannot believe I am saying this but I’m watching the madrid game and the spuds are actually giving them a game. Had that been the current Arsenal team, we would capitulate within seconds. How far we have sunk!

    I’m honestly so upset thinking about that.

    1. chris says:

      Well done, Wenger !

  8. Ronny says:

    That should shut us up even if it is Maribo he’s just scored for pool……
    City against Napoli unbelievable effort quality and coaching.

  9. Ronny says:

    @the arsenal way.
    Can’t believe you are putting yourself through that I feared they might do alright so chose to watch city instead. Can’t watch I can’t close my mouth Harry kane for op mins.

    1. sanmi.marvellous says:

      ………….And Ox has scored for Liverpool in UCL which is bigger than an hattrick yet to be score by us (Arsenal) in second-fiddle UEL.

      1. Sue says:

        Took long enough!

  10. FrankN says:

    Leicester has sacked Shakespeare and is said to be eyeing Tuchel. Ths is what ambitious clubs do.

  11. Ronny says:

    Glad Shakespeare has gone he’s the git that got ranieri ousted!
    Ambitious clubs? Any club that’s not achieving or is underperforming.

  12. tatgooner says:

    this Tottenham side is much much better than any arsenal team in the past ten years

    1. Sue says:

      They do look solid. Gutted at writing that!

  13. ayodeji says:

    I have said it before I will say it again AFC will continue on a downward slope till Wenger is gone,

    1. gmv8 says:

      Kroenke will always be a glass ceiling, a new manager will require new backroom staff and I doubt any decent one will want to come with the lack of ambition under his tenure. If we managed to crowbar Kroenke out, and get in someone willing to invest a little, I could see a position for Wenger as head of scouting, although he probably wouldn’t take it. He does seem to have identified most of the up and coming stars, well before anyone else, especially in France, but a combination of dithering, stinginess, and useless backroom staff have allowed them to be whipped from under his nose

  14. Yossarian says:

    Going to Liverpool was a sideways move for the Ox.

    For now I still think Klopp is over-rated, but he’s young enough to develop into a better manager, and might do so one day.

    Our manager however, is well past his best days, and needs to make way for somebody new to breathe new life into Arsenal Football Club.

  15. gmv8 says:

    Central midfield was never the position for him and no one in their right mind would play him there, so for him to have moved to Liverpool over some man crush for Gerrard seems totally weird.
