This year potentially our subs bench could consist Lallana, Sturridge, Milner, Ox. It has been a long time since we have had such a strong bench.

It's unlikely, I can't see them all being fit at the same time

Not sure I quite understand this signing, but I'm happy to be proved utterly wrong. I've never seen a big light in him at Arsenal, but clearly many others do including what matter - our manager. But Chelsea being after him as well surely tells us he has quality, as well as Arsenal offering him a big contract.

Hopefully he will fit in well with our game style, and I sorta see him as another Gini type player and we need that for rotation and the amount of games coming up this season.

Also a bonus he is English in terms of Europe etc.

For what it is worth, Chelsea and Arsenal like him......... More importantly, Klopp likes him..... Phil may be off, Can is possibly winding down his contract ready for the off and Keita we wanted now and bid big but he is not coming for another year....... AOC is an England international and he wants to play for us !
I think this is a good signing !

Its an interesting move for him and us. I can see what Klopp likes, he's got pace and a serious engine, and is pretty versatile, but he has stagnated at Arsenal. Can't see him in our first XI if everyone's fit but he obviously has faith in himself to force his way in at Anfield & an understands that Klopp does operate a meritocracy.

Hopefully it works out well for both of us. Welcome to LFC Ox
Sounds similar to when Wijnaldum signed last year and a lot of us were surprised when he started before Can.

As Wijnaldum has shown in the past two matches, he’s great for the big occasion. I wonder if Klopp see’s OC as a more attacking alternative when the lesser teams visit and put 11 men behind the ball?

I couldn't agree more. I also think Klopp will get his game to another level, as I honestly believe his development was held back at Arsenal.

He never seemed to be played in the centre and it was always here there and everywhere else unfortunately for him.

He has quality he just needs educating/developing and as has been said Klopp will definitely do this.

Yes, a huge price for a player with 12 months on his contract but hey it is what it is.. Lets get behind the lad and show him the love. He will turn out to be a good buy IMO.

I felt there was too many "sorta" and "kinda" type words in the rest of your post and not definitive enough about his quality and how good he could be for us !

Just read that Mirror atricle about us 'playing Chelsea'

So that's Chelsea, Arsenal, Southampton, United and Everton that all passionately hate us now.

Every match will be like a derby next year.

From an interview he did in 2015


Quote:
What team did you support as a boy and who are your footballing heroes?


I wasn’t the most loyal fan as a boy, I’m not going to lie. I used to support Zola and Henry so whenever Chelsea or Arsenal were playing and those two were playing, I would support them and the team. As I grew older, as I understood football more, watching the whole Arsenal team and how they used to play, that’s what I fell in love with and that was a massive part of why I chose to come to Arsenal at the time I did. I think my family, because my dad was a footballer and his brother, my uncle, was a footballer, I don’t think there was ever really that fanatical support towards one team. It was almost something that was taken for granted that football was just football and we all just loved playing it and appreciated it. I was never brought up supporting a team, it was more just supporting players and what style of play I loved. My dad used to love watching Man U back in the day when they used to play some good stuff and then he used to love Arsenal and used to love Chelsea before that but he was more of a Stoke fan because that’s where he’s from. I couldn’t see myself getting involved with that. I never really supported a team. I used to love Arsenal but I’m from down south so could never come to games. I think the only games I used to ever be able to go to was as a ball boy at Southampton. They used to let the Academy boys be the ball boys down there. I wasn’t the best football fan back in the day but just loved watching and supporting players.

After Chelsea acted so reasonably when they signed Torres too. Poor bastards.

Add trying to turn Gerrard' s head twice to that too

Didn't they absolutely fuck spurs over with Willian too

Nice to see them get a bit of it back and be on the receiving end for a change.

Jürgen Klopp: I've been watching Alex's progress since 2014

Jürgen Klopp has outlined his delight at adding Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to his Liverpool project, three years after first noticing his talents during a Champions League game as Borussia Dortmund manager.

The 24-year-old penned a long-term deal with the Reds on Thursday to seal a deadline-day switch from Arsenal.

Klopp admits he has long held admiration for Oxlade-Chamberlain ever since he caught the eye of the boss after coming on as a substitute for the Gunners in a European tie in Dortmund back in September 2014.

The manager told Liverpoolfc.com: “I am really, really happy we have got Alex signed. Since the last game I have been waiting and hoping we could make this transfer - and when I got the news he was ours it was fantastic.

“I remember the first time I saw him play live - it was at Dortmund in 2014 and he came on as a sub that day and made a big impact. He stood out immediately because of his pace and skills and his attitude in such a big game for a young player; I remember him chasing back to make a brilliant challenge on Mkhitaryan in the box to save a certain goal.

“We won that game but lost the return match at Arsenal when he started and played well, I think he hit the post. Since then I have followed him and when I heard it may be possible to sign him I didn't need to think twice.

“I hear a lot of talk about positions but let's talk about the player; he is someone with really good abilities who always gives everything for his team. A player that is positive and willing to take risks to try and make positive things happen.

“He may still be young but he has a lot of experience in the Premier League, Champions League and for his country. Already he is a very, very good player and I think he has the mentality and desire to get even better - and that excites me.

“This is someone making a tough decision to leave one great club and come to another great club and I think he had many options, so to get him means I am delighted.

“He didn't make an easy decision but I think he made a great one to go on this journey with this squad of talented boys and our great supporters. I welcome him to the Liverpool family.”

Sounds good, also looks like Jurgen is being backed, he is choosing his players and the side may not be fully ready until next season, but he's being smart and patient. I think Chamberlain will prove to be a very good signing.
