Oxlade-Chamberlain Out Injured for Whole Season

Recommended Posts

Bad news for Alex.... Recent scans have shown his knee injury is worse than first thought and he'll likely miss the whole of this season.

Gutted for the lad, he was really starting to establish himself.

It's the Arsenal DNA.

Such a shame for the poor lad, He's gonna miss like a full year of football just when he was fulfilling his potential, You have to wonder whether he will ever recover from this to be the same player.

Doubtful! It's definitely going to be the biggest challenge of his career.

That's going to be hard for him to take... A whole season out will be frustrating spending it on the sidelines..

Shite news for us, but especially for him. Apparently he's known he'd be out that long since April and kept quiet about it so as to not fuck with the morale of the squad in our CL run. He's been pretty great for us other than his first couple appearances, as I said in the LFC thread - he's a good player. He gives us a lot of pace and energy from the midfield and put in some big performances in big matches for us - he'll be missed.

Shame that something like this has happened to us 2 years in a row. First Lallana & now the Ox.

I hope Lallana can get back to somewhere close to what he was the season before last. He looked really poor whenever he got on the pitch last season, which is understandable given how longer he was out. He could be an important squad player this season given this news about Chamberlain

Absolutely. Lallana 2 seasons ago was one of our best players, last season he looked so off the pace from being out for so long. Pretty stark contrast between them.

It was rumoured and it makes a good story and this is the internet so the best thing to do is just decide it's true and laugh until someone can prove otherwise.

Even if that were true, wouldn't we still not know about it due to the club keeping it quiet? I doubt it though, the club couldn't even keep Sakho taking drugs that were allowed by WADA/FIFA a secret.

No, he played a few games after a serious back injury and was on the bench for the latter part of last season. He may have sniffed a few lines though, who knows, but nothing was ever proven as far as I know?

I used to think the rumours of Andy Carroll being a cokehead were bollocks until I saw evidence of it being true - so there's some truth in what you said for sure xD

He needs regular football. A 6 month loan would give him a chance to regain his confidence which i honestly think he'll struggle to get at Liverpool due to only get infrequent opportunities to play 45+ minutes

I honestly wonder if he'll ever play again. I'm no physio but that sounds almost life-changing.

I don't think we can afford to send him on loan, he'll be needed for squad depth. Most certainly not if the Fekir deal doesn't get over the line

He looks like hes working hard pre season and hes getting plenty of minutes so hopefully Lallana can be an important member of the squad this year. I agree with all that he looked well off the pace towards the end of last season. 

Absolutely gutted for Ox, poor lad can't catch a break.

Tearing one ACL kept out Yannick Bolasie out for almost a year (I only use him as an example as I did mine in the same month - honestly a hideous injury).

I'd imagine shagging your lateral, posterior and medial (or any horrible combination of the four) is the kind of stuff that ruins careers. 

If it's right about all the ligaments, even he did come back from that, he'll be a totally different player. I'd be astonished if he plays at the top level again.. Poor lad.

Imagine the players in the lower leagues that tear their ACL and aren't under contracts :(

As long as you are a registered professional footballer you can get insurance without needing to be at a club.

Could be back earlier than anticipated. Good news for Liverpool fans if he comes back as good as before, but always difficult after such a serious injury.

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could return to training at the end of February.

The 24-year-old has been out since suffering knee ligament damage during the Champions League semi-final with Roma in April.

"Best news. He started going on the pitch and looked normal. We had to wait for the reaction and there was none," said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

"No pressure so late February/March for him to come back to training."

Oxlade-Chamberlain needed surgery for an injury picked up tackling Aleksandar Kolarov in a 5-2 first-leg win over Roma at Anfield.

The England international's time out of the game included missing the 2018 World Cup.

He posted a picture on Instagram of himself running with his arms aloft and the message: "That feeling when you're finally back out on the grass for the first time in 8 months."

Klopp added: "It's a surprise. He's ahead of schedule. That's always good news. We try not to push him too much but we don't want to hold him back.

"If he makes further steps like he did in the last few weeks he can play Premier League football this season, which is nice to know."
