[Video] Tribute To AOC – Watch This Arsene & Play The Kid!
A video montage of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s best bits to remind Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger what the 18-year-old is capable of after dropping him recently.
Like many Arsenal fans, i’m a huge admirer of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. In my opinion, alongside Jack Wilshere, he is the most exciting youngster at the club. Ryo Miyaichi isn’t far behind either, but AOC and Wilshere could really go on to become Arsenal greats.
AOC has everything. Pace, power, technical ability, he can pass and shoot with both feet and isn’t afraid to put his foot in either. He gave us a glimpse of what he was capable of with a superb goal against Olympiakos in September, making him the youngest ever Englishman to score in the Champions League.
But Chamberlain really burst onto the scene with a superb performance against Blackburn in February when he scored a lovely brace. After this game was being regarded by many fans as a first team regular and after another super all-round display against AC Milan at the Emirates, many felt it would be difficult for Arsene Wenger to leave the 18-year-old out the side.
However, since the Blackburn game AOC has only started 3 of the last 10 games and since the Milan tie, he’s only played a total of just 89 minutes of football in four matches.
Wenger has chosen to start Ramsey out of position on the left side ahead of the Oxe in recent games, which is head scratching to say the least. Choosing Gervinho i understand, but Ramsey?!
So why has Arsene decided to hold him back? Surely the kid has proven he deserves more playing time than he’s currently getting? I’m not asking for him to start ever game and play every minute, but 89 minutes of football in the last four games is nowhere near enough considering what AOC can offer the team.
Just in case the boss has forgotten what Chambo is capable of, here’s a video montage of some of his best bits to remind him. Watch the video Arsene, and start playing AOC again!
