Arsenal agree to sell Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool for £40m

Wenger confident on Oxlade-Chamberlain's future

According to David Ornstein of the BBC, Liverpool are on the verge of signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for £40 million – a club record fee for a player sold by Arsenal.

The England international will put pen-to-paper on a six-year deal at Anfield having snubbed the chance to join Chelsea. The Gunners had accepted a £35 million offer from the Blues earlier in the week.

Chamberlain leaves Arsenal after six years with 20 goals to his name in 198 appearances and his time at the club bookended by two of the most horrific defeats of the club’s modern era – the 8-2 defeat at Old Trafford and Sunday’s 4-0 loss at Anfield.

Despite the big-money deal, Ornstein says that Wenger is not expected to redirect the funds elsewhere before the window closes tomorrow night.

You might want to rummage around in your shed at this point, no doubt pitch forks will be very much in fashion in N5 come 11.01pm tomorrow.

Just selling, We have no purchases!!!!!!!
buy Seri,Van Dijk,Lemar

WWTC

I think I have stopped caring

Gooner1886

Today I jokingly told my 11 year old Chelsea supporting nephew ‘why don’t u support a proper team like arsenal’.

He said ‘no one supports arsenal bcos arsenal are a joke’.

To which I had no reply.

Yea I’m kinda done caring too.

PatJ

Next time ask him if he watched the last cup final.

bdagooner

Or ask him who won the league over 38 games last year?

My Wig smells cheesy

There’s no need to do that surely

Ista

That was an extremely great year and all players were highly motivated with a fucking strong spirit…we should not forgot it but that huge performance belong to the past..every year Mr. Wenger uses the same SAUCE!! IT JUST DOES NOT WORK ANY MORE…..AND I AM EXTREMELY SAD TO WATCH THIS TEAM…BECAUSE THIS TEAM DOES NOT HAVE ANY MORE SPIRIT…..

SeanJuba

Explain to your nephew that his life span is longer than chelseas history.

Anonymarse

Best way

Handbraker

I believe if you keep saying it, maybe add a few more exclamations it’ll work.
For your own health, I’d recommend coming to terms with Johnny Evans, LANS Wilshere, LANS Debuchy, and we don’t want to kill Reiss Nelson anyway. It’s not always about buying and buying, sometimes internal solutions work just as well.

Gooner1886

Well if that’s the case… wenger out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ric

#ArseneInDisguise

Ausdrexler

Debuchy is actually a quality player. If he were to stay and apply himself he would be a genuine LANS. Might be an opportunity to be the challenge for Bellerin.
Long shot I know, but ya never know.

Bosscielny

Can we let Andre Marriner handle the departures of Ox and Gibbs?

gooner

On the other hand what’s the point of buying? You can buy messi and still bench him for welbeck. Just ask our new number 9 or the best LB in Germany last year

Paul

^ ^ ^ that really does need to be explained by Wenger at some point for us to believe he hasn’t actually lost the plot.

Jack4343

I agree 100 percent. It was the tipping point for me as well. That decision made me feel there is all kinds of batshit crazy things going on that we don’t know about or the boss has went bonkers. Either way…I want him out. Now.

Dan Gunn

Maybe he has lost the plot… 10 years of negative media spotlight might have finally broken him.

Tanzanian Gooner

We won’t buy anyone mate. According to Ornstein, apparently, even after selling Ox we don’t have money for replacement. I think it’s time to delete this season and start a new Career mode.

Paul

I saw Ornstein say we weren’t planning to replace but could you link us to where he said we didn’t have the money please?

Paul

Actually I stand corrected – he did say this:
“Arsenal have no plans to replace AOC & no money for major signings, but only way Sanchez leaves is if #AFC get massive money & replacement.”
What the actual fuck is going on?
How can we have no money apart from if we sell Alexis?
I am lost here…

Mpls

This is the deal Wenger cut with the board I’ll wager- keeping Alexis and Ozil has to be paid for by selling others.

Anonymarse

Have no problem with the selling it’s the not buying

At least we will have plenty of cash in the bank

Jimbo Jones

Its fire sale time it seems! There’s so many parallels with the end of Graham’s reign and I think its damage limitation time at this point and by that I mean Wenger has one year left at most surely – I can’t see how he will survive the shitstorm that is brewing – and what would be crazy in any football club right now would be to:
1) lose our assets for nothing in the near future (we really need to cash in on Ozil, Sanchez, Ox etc or they will walk anyway and the next manager won’t have the players or the funds to rebuild the team)
2) dispense with key assets who would value in the future (why the hell did we let Szcenszny go cheap? these are the sorts of players we need to build around for the future; I’d love to say Wilshere is in this group too but I’m really not sure. Although I can’t imagine many of our other players having enough fight to pick up a red card in a U23 game do you?)
3) allow the current management to waste any of our cash investing in new players (transfers are not fixing this problem, its far more deep rooted and endemic than any one player and again it’s going no to be needed for rebuilding so let’s not clamour as fans to let Wenger spend it!)

We are winning nothing this year and we will not qualify for Europe again I promise. Its probably going to get worse before it gets better. Time to manage our expectations.

The supporters do need to rally now, those at the ground and those on the forums, in the bars and in front of the TV’s all over the world. There’s no more WKB and WOB bullshit; the supporters are largely united as a fan base and want what’s best for the club and its time for change. Ive backed Wenger most of the time until last season, and I will talk fondly of the many great things he has done for us but right now it’s clear.

Wenger out.

SeanJuba

Spot on

caligunner

Do you really think the next manager was going to be able to spend what he needs to make the team better? Do you think anyone would want to come here with this type of ownership that has legit options at other clubs? Only playrs that are coming are desperate or rejects. No one with options are going to come here.

I think reflecting back the summer of ’15 when they only brought in Cech was the start of the downfall of this new era of Arsenal. Finally debt free from the the new stadium AW passed on getting 1-2 players to either bring in competition or depth to the squad.

This is sad

Fletcher

History indicates that players who leave Arsenal don’t necessarily set the world on fire at their new clubs,although i take exception to Van Parse ‘s first season at United, but one can count Henry Viera,Nasri, Cole,Helb,Song,Clichy …etc. thats to name a few. They did ok but they didn’t lit the world. My take here is that agents play major role in convencing players about destinations for their own benefits or what they deem as the benefits of player but they are mostly wrong
It is worth mentioning that ALex Ox agent Aidy Ward is also Raheem Sterling agent who engineered his acrimonious departure to Man City and i remember clearly that AW when quizzed about Sterling move said he is not finished article yet and i think he was right as Sterling couldn’t improve much from his days with mug smashers.

John C

This is some of the most revisionist shit i’ve read in a while.

Vieira won how many Italian titles after he left Arsenal? 3 in a row or something
Henry won La Liga and the Champions league
Nasri won 2 premier league titles
Cole won how many titles at Chelsea? 3? The Champions League, UEFA Cup, at least a couple of FA Cups, and the league cup if i remember correctly
Clichy at least 1 premier league title if not 2.

What have we won in that time?

Fletcher

Their teams won…On that we can say Song and Nasri Won titles yet they were normal to peripheral players

John C

So what?

Mike is Michael

I agree with you. Apart from RVP, they were not special when they moved.

Would we say Vermalen had any input in Barcelona’s Champions League win?

Or Song player a major role?

Maybe Nasri did help Manchester City but they were not spectacular.

That however, is not an excuse to sell our players.

caligunner

They got paid and part of title winning clubs lol WTF are you serious to think that you were happy that they didn’t get better but worse when they left? Arsenal has been getting worse since.

Gooner

He didnt talk about team achivements, he talked about players who left Arsenal and how they impressed in their new shirts.

Gooner1886

Yep and with the exception of cole, most of those players did actually play their best football at arsenal.

Mike is Michael

I agree

Paul

I thought Cole was very impressive in his new shirt me.

Paul

Ahhh, unless he was talking about Andy Cole?

Paul

I’ve just worked out what “revisionist” means. Cheers.

JBZZ

This is revisionist history bollocks. Henry won the treble and CL with barca. Cole won Leaguea and CL. Clichy, nasri, vieira all won the league since leaving.

Man Manny

Shocked to see Cole and Clichy there. Between them they won 5 epl titles and were key players to boot.

DuckandChips

Henry won the treble at Barcelona…

Mike is Michael

How much of his goals contributed to that?

DuckandChips

42 games and 26 goals in all competitions

Arseo

Cole? He was the best left back in the league for about 4 years with Chelsea

Voldermort

What a load of absolute bolox Fletcher. Fucking hilarious

Gooner McGoonFace

You’re nuts – NVTS! Henry…Vieira, Cole, Clichy have all left and won titles!

Fletcher

Again. ..Their teams won…On that we can say Song and Nasri Won titles yet they were normal to peripheral players…
Pls read think and reply. ..

SimSimma

Football is a team sport. You’re cherry picking with Song and so you might as well throw Hleb in there. Sure there are a few duds but generally key players at Arsenal were key players elsewhere. Henry was not a fringe player in his first seasons at Barca. Cesc had a good run too (and is still a key player for Chelsea). Cole as everyone mentioned was one of the best left backs in England while at Chelsea. Nasri’s problem is that he’s a self destructing twat. He could have been a tremendous footballer for any team but he prefers to be a twat.

Voldermort

They won titles. They have the medals. They have the memories.they earned the extra money.they won titles that they woudnt have done staying at arsenal simple as that.
The ox will probably win fuck all at Liverpool but the others in recent times have all done well. Face it and move on.

Cbee

Plonker

Dial square

You Sir, are talking absolute bollocks

ChicagoGooner9

Let the Reiss-Nelson era begin.

master floda

But what if we go back to a back 4? We don’t have cover for Bellerin (unless we want to rely on Debuchy)

Daniel

Brilliant fee for average injury prone player in last year of contract.
Need a back up rb, a cb, dmc and most likely a Sanchez replacement, all in 1 days ffs. Why not plan for this ffs?!

Petit\'s Handbag

I don’t get the point of people saying “brilliant fee”. Agree with everything else, but who cares about the money? Won’t be added to our bank account, won’t be additions to the squad to improve us. All we’ve done here is lose a player who we’ve put all our support behind for six years

Goonerink

Aurier, sahko, and carvalho 26m,29m,30m.
That’s a total outlay of 85m I could see it after we’ve spent 45m already, (so 130m in total) and only recouped 11m, 7m, 40m, and maybe a couple more so say 59m making Wenger’s net spend 71m. Freeing up wage funds to offer ozil more. That’s without Sanchez possibly leaving.

You can probably find your own replacements at a similar price, Question is can Wenger do it in 2 days?
No probably not.

But I watched the FA cup so I know miracles can happen!

Gooner1886

Aurier’s joining spuds isn’t he?

Goonerink

Don’t think it’s a done deal yet and he said he’s a gooner so I’m sure at that price we could come in and beat them to it.

Bosscielny

We don’t need Aurier. We have Debuchy.
And going by the recent team selection, I believe Ozil can play there as well.

gunnerdaremkd

Dude get back to earth, you are talking about wenger if we bring one player in will be a miracle and sins orneistein says unlikly that is it.

Goonerink

I up voted this as it’s a safer bet than my hopes!

Leon

Because he is an idiot, thats why there was no planning.
A self serving idiot who got what he wanted – another two years of fucking things up.
Who gives a shit what other people want.
Arsene got what he wanted..
The cunt..

T-Hairy

It’s a great price for him, but the fact is he was a first team player and not reinvesting it just further evidence that this club has zero ambition.

I cannot listen to a word from AW when he talks about our transfer activity or lack thereof anymore. He’s an intelligent man, but who does he think he’s fooling when he says that “we work very hard but top quality is not available” when deals are happening all around him.

He’s like a eunuch in a whorehouse saying “none of the girls were really my type”.

Big Mad Andy

See ya!

Jack

Hi Andy, I need someone to fix my bathroom door, what’s your availability like?

Big Mad Andy

I am available any time to come and kick it in shouting “You can fuck off pal, you can fuck off.”

JNG

Liverpool must’ve felt bad for us after the 4-0 trashing. Proper comfort money this, £40m for a squad rotational player. Good riddance!

Zero hope of reinvesting this though. Depressing.

Cas

I think Ox was already playing for the scousers last weekend.

Donald\'s Trump

Be funny if it turns out he’s really good and it’s just crap coaching/management holding him back.

Flashmob

There are a lot of people labelling this transfer as a “good riddance”.
Given Ox’s continous call-up in the national team by Southgate; the recent laudative comments from Wenger; and Klopp’s backing for the transfer –

Well, I hope your managerial expertice will prove to be superior to theirs!

Leon

Don’t worry it will be re-invested.
The purchase of additional land to extend Stan’s wonderful Wyoming ranch.
The 2.5 million pay rise that Wenger got for being a fucking failure.
And a performance bonus for good old Ivan who does precisely FUCK all for his money.
It will be re-invested…

Nightmare

Glad ox is going but shame the money won’t be reinvested – although we could purchase someone in the January window lol yes I’m clutching at straws!!!

Bosscielny

“Unlikely that AFC will sign a replacement”

Lost for words.
We’re in for a long long season.

Bon Jello

People always say you have to either love or hate Marmite. There’s no middle-ground apparently, which for me is strange, as I neither love it nor hate it. Which, funnily enough, is the complete opposite of how I feel about Arsenal these days.

The moral of the story; Arsenal isn’t Marmite. It’s the total opposite (for me at least).

Marmite is the antithesis of Arsenal… For me.

… I’m not handling this transfer window very well. 😅

Paul

I am happy for no replacement for Ox. It doesn’t mean nobody is coming in for other positions.

Jean Ralphio

40 million! Good business. I’m presuming we are going to buy someone tomorrow? Getting Van Dijk for money plus theo would be good business too

Tasmanian Jesus

Very good business.

Bosscielny

Very good business. Hence we can guarantee that won’t be happening.

Bryanclayden

Read the story properly and other reports coming out to.we are NOT signing anyone before window shuts

Awesomesauce25

Won’t sign a replacement does not mean the same thing as won’t sign anybody. We don’t need a replacement for Ox particularly. He was a backup RWB which we probably won’t need at all starting next game since we are surely moving back to 4 in the back. That means Bellerin can go back to the position he found his best form and we can use monreal and Sead on the left as it should be. Do we need a backup RB, possibly, but can be filled with youth or even Debuchy if he finds the balls to fight for a place on the France WC squad which he is so desperate for. We can use these funds to reinvest in more important areas, like CB or CM, which even though this summer has thus far been chaotic, I fully expect we will have incoming still.

PFo

Ornstein says there’s no money for “major signings”.

Paul

Link?

Jammyman

In isolation, yes, this is a decent fee. In the context of this summers tranfer activity, this sucks. Money in the back won’t help the team on the pitch. We should be improving the team with new signings.

Leon

Have you been watching Arsenal for the last ten years?
Have you ever seen Wenger do anything right?
No new signings.
We get weaker and our competitors get stronger
And that idiot thinks we can challenge.
I fucking hate that cunt…

Glocken

Record transfer fee to be surpassed tomorrow after Alexis joins City.

The club have shown in the last week what they really are –

Complacent, no ambition, only care about money and disorganised both on the pitch & off it.

Wenger Out
Kroenke Out

Scott P

The first half of that tweet – A-OK. The second half of that tweet – whyyyy.

RockOfGilberto

Because facts matter?

I wasn’t trying to say it wasn’t true. I’m asking why it has to be the truth… 🙁

Brown American Gooner
Brown American Gooner

Prices for English players are really inflated. 40 million with less than 12 months left on contract is a good fee.

Gooner1886

No purchases? Lol yea good one.
What seriously?

Gooneron

For 40 million, Liverpool just got mugged.

Frank

Please tell me it was £40,000,001

Crash Fistfight

At least that would be something to put a smile on your face at the moment.

Gooner1886

They did, but they don’t mind bcos they already have a top 4 quality team and have now added a versatile young squad player who also boosts their home-grown quota.

So while we laugh at the price, everyone else laughs at us in general 😔

Stuck on repeat...

Spot on.

PFo

And they’re really going to be laughing when they sign sell Coutinho for an absurd sum and sign Lemar tomorrow.

It Is What It Is

What have we lost/gained, and what have pool, since the end of last season?

lordMartynz

I want to see how Ox will get into this Liverpool midfield… Then next year Keita… I really want to..

gooner

Well he was getting in our team at the expense of better players throughout his stint with us.

Rich

I think we’ll end up seriously regretting this one.
I can completely understand why we’ve sold though.
But it’s no secret we should have done much more in terms of ambition to convince players we want to keep that Arsenal is the place to be.

No good luck wishes from me, I hate Liverpool and the Ox has left a bitter taste in my mouth.

gunnerdaremkd

Why will be regretting, he rejected 180pw deal, he is squad player never fulfilled his potential and i doubt he will, and 40mil for one year left is really generous, i think if ox had a long contract that liverpool and chlesea would not offered even 40 they were force to do it because he was leaving for sure and it was who will get it both clubs helped and hiked the price. great business if only we signed mahrez now mahrez can be signed for 42 mil

asda

The only thing you can regret is that he didn’t wanted to stay. If he indeed rejected that 220k p/w from chelsea, what could have we done? Offer him 250k p/w? Come one, you know that’s bollocks. Under those circumstances, sale was the best choice.

thepinckpunk

I do hope the find a way to put you to good use. Keep running fast and whatever else it is you do. Keep in touch. Thanks for your goal against Chivas!

Dan

Thank Goodness he’s gone. When a defender (Koscielny) has scored more goals than a player primarily used in attacking positions…well that tells you everything you need to know. Honestly guys if we were getting an attacking player with so little production, would we be happy? I for one wouldn’t be. Too bad that money won’t be invested back on the team.

asda

Nice, just imagine the reactions here if the Arsenal would have bought player with those stats for 40m, truly lol.

Atom

Selling him was good business IMO as I tend to think if he hasn’t developed into a great player by now he likely never well. He’s a lot older than people seem to realize and still isn’t a guaranteed starter for Arsenal, England or likely Liverpool. That said this year is just the ultimate screw you as we aren’t even replacing players who are leaving let alone getting better. Either Wenger is totally delusional or we as a club are cool with being a Europa league team going forward. In that case why even bother bringing back Wenger or hanging onto Sanchez.

Bosscielny

Qualifying for Europa League will be tough, considering our rivals Southampton and West Brom have done well in the transfer window.

GunnerYY

Sign Seri now!!! use that money to buy his release clause.

Bryanclayden

His release clause date has passed, no longer has one

Nav van dham

No such thing as rivalry now between us and anybody else. We are bang average now

lordMartynz

Sadly

Loose_Cannon

This, and I for one am embracing our newfound mediocrity! We only need 40 points to reach our targets now and we go to City and Chelsea safe in the knowledge that we can park the bus without getting embarrassed by a cricket scoreline

bruce666

That is a good fee for a player (who didn’t want to stay) in his last year. Kudos to Arsenal for getting this done before Thursday. Not sure if we need to buy a replacement for him as we have a heavy squad to begin with. Plus we have Reiss-Nelson, who I hope is eased into the team. We already bought Sanchez’ replacement in lacazette. I’d be more worried if we sold Ozil and didn’t get a replacement for him. While no one is irreplaceable, IMO he’s one that is going to be hard to replace. Without him and Santi, I don’t see anyone with creativity in the side.

Atom

We are taking a squad that put up relegation form from Jan – March, was double digits off the title pace & couldn’t even finish top 4. Our plan appears to be sell our best player (Sanchez) & replace him with a player who almost is unlikely to match his goals & assists this year. Add in that all of the top 4 rivals have strengthened what were already superior squads to ours. I don’t understand this at all.

Heisenberg

Finally Daniel Sturridge will have some company on the treatment tables at Anfield!

G-Man

Fuck this. Fuck all of this. It’s beyond a joke. Not solely because of the transfer but because our dickhead of a manager shoehorned him into the team in a bid to appease someone we all knew wasn’t happy here. In that process he fucked up our first 3 games. Why did he play him?? Wenger knew he wanted out. It’s reasons like these that Wenger MUST GO.

Bryanclayden

Can any of the 4 people please explain why they down voted this?

bdagooner

It was Wenger, Gazidis, Bould, Pat Rice and Gunnersaurus

Gooner1886

I didn’t down vote but I’m assuming it’s bcos of the idea that ox being in the team was the reason we played baldy.

He was a reason, but far from the only reason.

PFo

This (though I also didn’t downvote).

G-Man

Jesus, I’m not that plastic. He wasn’t the only reason but the lack of positional awareness in Wenger’s team management so far this season has cost us points. Ox playing LWB was a contributing factor.

Steve AFC brown

Good riddance how’s he expect too get in liverpools central midfield god knows now spend it on somebody who is talented mr wenger

Bruce666

He’s someone who would replace what Sterling did for them.

Dylan

Know what…good luck to the fella. Never nailed down a place in which I feel both parties are to blame. Good price as long as he doesn’t do it against us. It’s a truly deflating time

Jmarsh

We won’t miss him! He should have been sold earlier in the window. I hate it when players think they are better than they are.

ramgooner

Hahaha Mugsmashers got mugged off. Fantastic piece of business at 40 million. Now let’s sell Mustafi and wait for a madness to happen.
If Sanchez wants off i would be happy to do a Cash+Sanchez for Thomas Muller. The guy needs playing time in the WC year and it seems he is not getting much at Bayern.

AFCRob

£40m???? Are they smoking something up at Andfield!?

Gibbo

Is it possible to really like a player, while knowing he’s really shite?

Ted E.

Last season of Flamini would indicate, yes, very possible.

Hereford gooner

Yes Kieran, it is

SeanJuba

He is not worth 40m so good business if you look at the transaction in isolation. But as part of the bigger picture, unless there is some big secret that will give us all a pleasant surprise tomorrow, like a top level signing, it’s just more of the same arsene wenger transfer window clusterfuck that we see every year. Do your business early. Bed in new players. Hit the ground running. Not us. Instead, write off August, play catch up, fail, talk about potential for next year. Then press repeat. Wish gibbo well. Ox can go and fuck himself as he stopped trying and that’s not acceptable. Sanchez is more trouble than he’s worth so sell.

What a shambles. Fuck you arsene and the board for your selfishness and ego and greed which is ruining our great club. We are a laughing stock.

Man Manny

Good deal for a glorified squad player. Imagine the sheer vitriol that would flood this page if Arsene forked out £40m for a player with Ox’ stats.
Arsene returning to a back four. The big question remains though: who comes in within the next 28 hours? Watching and waiting with bated breath.

David

We need to reinvest or we are doomed! DOOMED!

Oo2b

Stan should get a reasonable bonus payment from this!

Anders

Get bac Sagna as right bac bac up

Chamakh123

40 Mil for the Ox is a pretty amazing deal. However, it really shows how terrible we have become that our players want to join Liverpool over us.

I feel sorry for Wenger, its an appallingly slow car crash, but he is so devoid of ideas.

I fully expect Sanchez to be a city player on Friday.

Now, we surely surely have to buy some replacements?

Smudger

I really fucking hope they play you in goal.

Bye bye.

I Am Gunnaaaaa

Was it £40m + 1?

Alex

Quotas of English players. They cannot buy him for his quality.

Jamdangle

I fucking hate this manager, this board and this owner so goddamn much. The longer Wenger is a part of this shameful degradation the more I give two shits about his legacy. Have a backbone. Stand up for the club.

Jack

Why is the only player we’re rumoured to be signing is Evans? If you look closely Evans is actually Matthew Lillard, star of Scooby Doo and 13 Ghosts

Really am concerned we are going to lose more players tomorrow without signing anyone.

“Old Man Wenger! So it was you as the Mad Manager all along?”

“That’s right, and I would have gotten away with it too, if I had a little bit more sharpness!”

Godfrey Twatsloch

Good riddance!

Let’s see how Klopp tolerates periods of lacklustre performances that Wenger has.

Ching ching!

Penfield

Maybe what we’ll actually see is how young players can flourish when playing in a system with balance and positional discipline..

Godfrey Twatsloch

That is of course also a possibility. Maybe Klopp is the man to get the best out of the Ox. Regardless the scenario of what you suggest or my previous point it will be interesting to see how he fairs under someone else. Not least since that manager is Klopp.

Jamdangle

And I’m fine with the same, it’s the fact that it’s getting pocketed that infuriates me.

catbiscuits

to be fair, Ornstein’s tweet only says the money won’t be used for a “replacement,” which doesn’t rule out spending it to strengthen the squad elsewhere

*clutches at straws*

I think they know we wont win shit so there trying to just make as much money as they can without making us shit to the point of no return

More money more power they say…… unless you are Arsenal….

abc

I live in the US but if I lived in London I’d be out there with banners…

asda

I know, right? No banners, no support and love for the club and the more banners, the better the team plays!

Gooner Scrooge

And finally we have actually made some money this transfer windows. Mission accomplished!

Vieira

Funny how a team who beat us comprehensivly and coached by a manager we’d gladly take as our own, buy a player who by the sounds of it,
They rate as a potential centre midfielder, a position we are seriously lacking quality

Loose_Cannon

Hmm funny that indeed. Are we so out of touch? No. It’s everyone else who are wrong. Seriously though, just because Ox maybe might not have been suitable to play in a 2 with our style of play (and we never really got to find out), doesn’t mean he couldn’t play in a 3 with Liverpool’s style.

Gordy

No one has mentioned that this was a player who was given great support by the fans. The North Bank had a brilliant relationship with him but those things don’t seem to count for much nowadays. And everyone liked Gibbo and if he hadn’t headed off the line we would have lost the FA Cup to Hull. Oh for a Tony Adams or a Denis who loved the club.
