Is Ox now a bigger snake than Nasri, Cesc and RVP after Cheating Gunners v Liverpool in Last Game

Let’s all laugh at Arsenal their absurd fans. Yeah I get it, it’s funny. The best run club in the world ™ has no money and none of their players want to stay. All very amusing and bizarre in equal measure.

However the one thing I would like to point out, which in my opinion, has not been given anywhere near enough attention, is the curious case of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He was picked on Sunday when most of us were fairly sure he was off. Rumours of Chelsea, but Liverpool were also being suggested.

In hindsight, it seems pretty clear that he was always going to Liverpool. Now, go through the game on Sunday if you have the time and patience. He put in what I can only describe as one of the worst professional performances I have ever seen from any player. Making mistakes is forgivable; not trying not even an ounce of effort is not.

This sits extremely uncomfortably with me. It is quite clear that AOC did not want to be part of a victory against his future team and was culpable in at least two of the first three goals. How could this situation ever been allowed to arise?

Yes, Wenger is completely to blame for picking him. Maybe he thought he could persuade him to stay. In itself, this is a bit odd though, as he is hardly Cafu. Why did he displace Bellerin and drop Kolasinac? Maybe we will never know. Was Wenger making a point, Mourinho style? What is most astonishing of all though is that Liverpool gave us £40m on the back of that performance. What are they smoking at Anfield?

Shocking in last game v new team

 To my mind this is exactly the reason why the transfer window should shut before the season starts, eliminate this possibility. I remember a similar situation with Samir Nasri, and in his last game, he was MOTM, but it wasn’t against Man City. Would he have put in a similar performance if it had have been? I doubt he would have played to be honest

Nasri – MOTM knowing he was leaving

Am I calling into question the integrity of a professional footballer. Absolutely I am yes. It feels like football now no longer operates in the real world. In my industry, we have the concept of gardening leave. If you indicate you want to join a competitor you are locked out of the office for 3-6 months and are not allowed to take across any clients or staff with you for a longer period, often stated in your contract. Football is not real. You don’t get the opportunity to harm you current employers and one that stuck by through various injuries for six years, whilst you STILL PLAY FOR THEM. It is astonishing.

Of all the snakes that Arsenal have had to deal with in the last 10 years (Cesc, RVP, Nasri) Oxlade has put himself at the very top of that list. Arsenal fans should and will not forget his last appearance. Some call it cheating. So do I.

In TV terms, football has finally jumped the shark. (Feels like someone says that every summer!)

Enjoy transfer deadline day everyone!

    Agreed! He cheated. My husband said the same thing from the beginning. I wish him the bench at Liverpool

    There all Snakes The Arsenal give all these players the best opportunity in the limelight But to turn down £180,000 and move to the Scouser beggars belief . I’m 53 years old I played a lot of football as young boy In the days when it wasn’t about money. The managers The players have all turned into mercenaries. I hate the Agents with a passion Inwant my old Arsenal back I’m now Wenger Out for the first time Sorry to say Gooner for life

    What rubbish. That is just how Ox plays sometimes. Always has been inconsistent – high risk / reward. Plus he has poor ‘ vision.’ He is best played right wing – not in central midfield. I wish him well .. and do not blame him for wanting off and away from Wenger.

    So Ox is a bigger snake than RVP (once a gooner always a gooner)?? I doubt that.
    You’re clutching at straws, the whole Arsenal team were poor on Sunday, not just Ox.

    As for the fee! I’d have bid £40mil (+£1) after hearing that he snubbed Chelsea and Arsenal to join us (on a lesser wage).

    Let it go boys, hopefully he’ll reach his potential under Klopp as all he has done under Arsene is plateau (like so many others).

    last one out turn the lights off! : D

    By the way, why hasn’t any club approach Wenger yet?

    Chatting to Ramsey for the first goal, and no attempt to look like he was arsed when Salah ran through.
    Even worse was the main stand applauding him as he came off!!
    Hopefully Klopp might instil a work ethic in him, as he won’t budge Can, Hendo or Gini in midfield and we still have Lallana, Milner and Grujic. Curious to promise him a midfield berth…..

    What a bullshit article!

    Wenger is the one at fault for starting a player who had already said he wanted to leave and wasn’t going to sign a new contract.

    He shouldn’t of been anywhere near the first team. What Wenger was doing putting him in & starting him beggars belief.

    Wenger completely to blame why he was on the pitch in the first place? insane team selection all round .

  12. Victor Thompson September 5, 2017 at 11:21 am #

    He left for £60k per week less than he was offered. That is not the sign of a mercenary ( snake ). He left because he had never been given a solid role in the team where he thought he would play best. I watched the game and he was no worse than any of the others. They all played as individuals, with no idea of a team plan.

    That was down to Wenger as was the decision to drop his two latest signings even though they had both played well in their two games. Klopp will prove Wenger`s ineptitude when he turns Ox into a top player which AW couldn`t do.
