Chelsea make bid for Ox

According to the Mail Chelsea have bid £25 million for the Ox



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Apparently he has had a face-to-face conversation with Wenger and told him he wants out.

I don't blame him at all but I also feel he isn't good enough to hold us to ransom. £35m and he can go.

Dont blame him at all, no one wants to play for a loser.

I'm sure Wenger will have a million excuses for our contracts predicament, or blame everyone else, or as a "look into my eyes" last ditch effort claim having top players with only a year left on their contracts to be the 'ideal' situation.

But the reality is this doesn't happen at other clubs or under actual 'top' managers. It is total negligent mismanagement from an arrogant negligent manager who lost touch with the modern game (and reality for that matter) a long time ago.

Apparently told him that the club is going nowhere.

We could have told him that seasons ago.

Seriously though I think bringing top class players with ambition to the club is going to get harder.
Players are getting wise to Arsenal/Wenger.

Heard that OX turned down that new offer of £125,000 pw.

Can't blame him.
He is smarter that Poodlebrain and knew that he will end up as another Theo Walcott who can dribble.

He knew and needed a new manager like Conte of Klopp who can develop him to another level.

It will be daft to retain a player whose heart is no longer with Arsenal FC.

Arsene Wenger should standby what he said to Jose Reyes:
"My office door is always open. I will not retain any player who does not wish to play for Arsenal FC".

And he should standby to what he did to Vieira offering him a choice to stay or leave, never making Vieira felt wanted.
Miffed, Vieira left for Juventus.

Last one out turn the lights off we will end up with the dross

Oxlade-Chamberlain is the dross mate. What other word describes a bloke who has played 131 Premier League games for us and scored nine - yes NINE - goals? Wenger isn't the bad guy here. In fact, if we get £35 million for him then give Wenger his statue now because that's an astoundingly good deal for us.

If you blame Wenger anything it has to be for giving the chap countless opportunities to fulfill his potential and Oxlade-Chamberlain more or less spits in his face every single time.

When I think of Oxlade-Chamberlain, I think of banter, secret handshakes with team-mates, coining the 'Dat guy Welbz' phrase, dabbing and horrendous haircuts, the latest of which looks like a bowl of p*ssed-on quinoa.

The reason I, and I'm guessing many others, don't tend to associate him with anything regarding football is because he has done absolutely nothing in football. I can think of two things: a goal in the Charity Shield against Chelsea, and a solo run away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Honest to god that's all I can think of.

Could anyone do a 'Five Classic Oxlade-Chamberlain Moments'? And yet he's been here for six years, so he doesn't even average one classic moment per season. And he's telling Arsenal that he wants to leave? What a little shitbag this bloke is, the most overrated footballer since Balotelli and I mean that sincerely.

Our formation is more @#$%& than the ox. We don't have natural wingbacks. In this formation you need a lot more attacking ability in the final third from your wb. He's currently the best of the lot inspite of being average.
Bellerin has done @#$%& all in the attack. And i dont blame him. He has good place but can't really play menacing balls or shoot or dribble.

Thsts the reason wenger is keen. Monreal, bellerin and even kolasinac are not going to be a threat with 5 at the back.

The sooner we ditch the formation, the better

his goal scoring return isnt great, but lets not forget many of his appearances are as a sub, or as a right back, right midfielder, or b2b central midfielder. he has also spent a lot of time hurt. but this is not a player who plays high up on the wing like theo, and tries to get in behind. this is a player who runs at defenders and and tries to serve the forwards.

196 appearances and 20 goals. thats a goal every 10 games. not great.... but thats like being mad at coquelin for not scoring more. thats not his job. if all we cared about was goals per game, call Poldi back up.

the Ox is one of 3 players who has the ability to run at a defender. I am including alexis as one of the 3, but thats not really his MO either. hes trying to cut inside and create a shot, not trying to get past a man to see what opportunities present themselves

Olympics for football? That’s just an embarrassing sport!

Individual accolades are extremely important for individuals. It means you are doing a good job and builds confidence and sets a target for you to beat. That’s part of why Spurs keep improving because the players want to improve on their past individual accomplishments.

If like the Arsenal players, your standards are so low than your target is to beat 12 goals from last season, eventually your teams drops out of the top 4 and you start playing Europa football instead. Then your best players start leaving and before you know it you will be a mid-table team. That’s why individual accolades are important!

Football isn’t a game for collecting individual accolade. Those golden boot means absolutely nothing if the team didn’t win anything! It’s simple. Arsenal players win trophies… FACT. Messi won ballon d’or or golden boot which shines when Barcelona wins the title, CL otherwise means nothing. Henry won those stuff when Arsenal won trophies.
If Harry Kane wants to prove he’s a big player then either he has to leave Spurs go somewhere win trophies or gotta go to Olympics and compete in some individual sports to win a medal.

2 golden boots is not nothing, but im not sure its fair to compare players who won the world cup. Just because Messi hasn’t won the world cup, doesn’t mean hes a rubbish player.

Kane is only 23. At the start of his career and plenty of time to win things! Hes already won 2 golden boots in a row. Last person to do that was some nothing player called Thierry Henry!

Sanchez, the alien and OliG are at the end of their careers so of course they are more likely to have won stuff.

Harry Kane is the top scoring striker in the PL two seasons running and hes only 23! Hes scored 5 goals for England and 2 in CL, but injuries have meant hes missed lots of CL and England games this season. Arsenal don’t even have a striker that comes close.

I cant believe you question Spurs and Kane when Arsenal haven’t beaten Spurs in a PL game for 3 seasons now.

Listen, Oxlade-Chamberlain is clearly a fine talent, but he doesn't want it enough in football. He never has and the sad truth is that he never, ever will.

My perception of the bloke - which could be completely false - is that he's probably a bit of a posh tw*t who has never really had to earn much in his life, so where does the motivation come from?

He joined Southampton as a child and they helped fund his education at a school which plays rugby and cricket, where he mixed with a bunch of blazer-wearing posh shitbags whose parents were forking out £11,000 every year on their schooling - and £25,000 a year if they were boarders. Yes I Googled it.

Do you think keeping such company is good or bad when it comes to having to work hard for something? Who knows.

Football is obviously something which came easy for him so he rose through the ranks at Southampton and we bought him based on what he could become. Problem is, talent only gets you so far in any hobby or profession and what we've seen over the last six years is a bloke who lacks the will and the spirit to reach the next level, probably because he's been told that he's better than everybody else his whole life and thus didn't have to work as hard.

He genuinely hasn't progressed at all, has he? At 24, he's the same player he was three years ago. He's only a year younger than Sanchez when he joined in 2014.

I think background is such a big thing with footballers. It's probably which separates the Oxlade-Chamberlains from the Wayne Rooneys of this world. The easier you have it growing up, the tougher it is to reach the next level in anything because there's a natural inclination to take luxuries for granted. That's precisely what we've seen from him at Arsenal for six whole years and it's a bang-on certaintee we'll see the same from him at Chelsea eventually. Completely inevitable in my eyes.

Wenger will play Nelson at WB and say it is to improve his overall attributes, like he does when he plays other players out of positions, but we know it ends up hurting the players and the team in the long run.

Maitland-Niles or Joe Willock is the natural replacement for OX and understudy Bellerin.
And not forgetting Bellerin is No. 1 RWB, will be around for a long time until Barca submits a serious bid.

Bellerin was moved to LWB to woo OX to sign on .. like playing Walcott as lone striker till he signed the extension.

Reiss nelson is the natural replacement for Walcott.
AN injury-prone Walcott will always has one long injury layoff ... and Reiss should seize this opportunity to replace Walcott.

But you know how pre-season form is like.
It seldom translate into regular season form with youngsters tend to taper off after 1 or 2 impressive performances.
