Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Jurgen Klopp has assembled arguably the most likeable Liverpool squad in memory. Whereas in the past, supporters would have a small selection of genuine heroes to choose from, they are now spoiled for choice. Everywhere you look, there are superb, Champions League-winning footballers who are also warm, down-to-earth characters, from Alisson in goal right the way through to Sadio Mane in attack. One player who manages to even stand out from this crowd is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: a loveable person and …
Henderson Brings Out The Stubbornness In All Of Us

Henderson Brings Out The Stubbornness In All Of Us

What better way to liven up the start of a tedious international break than to announce Jordan Henderson's new five-year deal at Liverpool? That certainly fired us all back into life, didn't it? The obsession and division that the Liverpool skipper causes among the fanbase is unlike any player in recent memory, with so many holding such an emphatic opinion of him either way. It has become both weirdly fascinating and utterly tedious in equal measure. We all have individuals …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

As a raw teenager at Southampton in the 2010-11 season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carved out a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in English football. A clamour for his signature ensued in the Summer of 2011, and it was Arsenal who staved off interest from a number of suiters by completing the signing of the exciting teenager. At the time, Arsenal had a strong reputation for developing young talent. So it was understandable that the youngster chose to ply his …
Tactical Analysis: Breaking Down Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool

Tactical Analysis: Breaking Down Arsenal 3-3 Liverpool

It took some doing for Liverpool to best their most ridiculous performance of the season, but somehow they managed to do it. Unlike the Sevilla fixture though, Liverpool only surrendered control for a brief handful of minutes: but that was more than enough for Arsenal to sweep in and turn the game on its head. Yet, were it not for a few moments of madness, we would likely be here, hailing a magnificent performance from Liverpool, once again. https://twitter.com/Caley_graphics/status/944324234150645765 https://twitter.com/GoalCharts/status/944894603110514688 In …

What Does The Ox Bring to Anfield?

What Does The Ox Bring to Anfield?

Well, it is official! Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal on a 5 year contract for a reported fee of 35 million pounds paid upfront with a further 5 million in add ons. However, this transfer is pretty strange. Both Arsenal and Liverpool fans seem to be happy about this one which is usually not the case for most transfers. While Gunners fans believe they have recouped 35 million for a player who scored 2 goals …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joins Jurgen's Reds

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joins Jurgen's Reds

Another day, another signing. Chamberlain looked destined to join Chelsea a few days ago after Arsenal agreed on a fee in the region of £40million for the midfielder. However, with his heart firmly set on a move to Liverpool, the 24-year-old snubbed the Premier League Champions, and 220k per week, to link up with Jurgen Klopp. Admittedly, there’s been a mixed bag in terms of reaction, with the club’s pursuit of Thomas Lemar gauging more interest, but signing Oxlade-Chamberlain this …
Liverpool and Arsenal | Giants Heading In Different Directions

Liverpool and Arsenal | Giants Heading In Different Directions

There are times when Liverpool just plain annoy me. There are times when I look back at all the personal and financial sacrifices I’ve made over the years in their name and wondered just why I bothered. When Liverpool were played off the park in the first half against Blackpool in 2010 I sat in my seat and thought about leaving the ground early for the first and only time in my life. That was an especial low point. Just …
Observations as Liverpool dominate the Gunners at Anfield

Observations as Liverpool dominate the Gunners at Anfield

Liverpool drubbed a listless Arsenal team as the attack ran riot for the Reds. The front three took their well-deserved goals and could have easily scored half a dozen tonight. Read on for my key observations from the game. The Line-up Surprise There was an equal measure of shock and surprise as Simon Mignolet was dropped altogether from the matchday squad, to be replaced by Karius in the line up. This was just the third game in the league, so …

Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal: The Reds' Unstoppable Attack

Liverpool continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with an impressive 4-0 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp made two changes to the side which beat Hoffenheim on Wednesday evening and secured a place in the Champions League group stages. Simon Mignolet was mysteriously left out of the squad, while Loris Karius made his first start in goal since December 2016. Trent Alexander-Arnold was also left out of the side as Joe Gomez and …
