It is just me or has Oxlade-Chamberlaine never been close to recovering his form since his serious injury? He has been disappointing post project restart and to be frank, even in the earlier season I thought the press were overhyping him to the extent I didn’t recognise who they were describing I suspect just because he is English.

With these types of injuries when can we expect (if ever) a player to reach previous levels? I’ve always been a big fan of Ox but right now he isn’t close to being a starter.

Ridiculous post imo
Support your players mate
And they will make you happen more often then not.

With you there John.

I don't think it's a ridiculous post. Ox has looked good against lesser opposition in the FA Cup or Champions League Group stages. In the league though, i think his best performances were against Bournemouth and West Ham who are both Championship standard teams deservedly in a relegation struggle.

It's just an honest assessment. Ox hasn't got back to his best yet. OP never said we should sell him or that he's a bad player. g1dgo merely expressed concern that Ox hasn't hit the heights he was at before his knee injury. I make him correct.

It's been discussed on here many times before. With a serious ACL injury, and Ox had a somewhat complex one with other issues also, it takes at least a year to see if previous levels can be achieved again, if at all. Some never recover fully (remember Aquilani? ), and some do (Gomez and Ings) .

People seem to forget his second leg performance against AM. stellar and possibly his best in a reds shirt.

Completely right ArAy I think Ox did multiple other ligaments and his meniscus as well. This essentially is his recovery year g1dgo so we can only be postive that he's kept relatively injury free and has been getting good minutes so don't be too worried about his performances. Hopefully next season he can get back to his first year levels and we did get a glimpse of that against Atletico.

Remember those goals ve genk? Absolute worlie one of them, the other was class too. He's been used a lot as an impact player and sub a lot this season and also up front. I'm not worried at all about the ox. Glad he's a Liverpool player.

Tbh, I think everyone has been a bit flat since the break, except maybe fabhino.

I think ox will he fine, he can play multiple positions also which is useful. What I will say is although in the last he has had some of his best games on the right cm spot I would like to see him play on the left side (ginis) role, as I think this will free him up to make more runs centrally and take on more shots at goal, we often see gini getting chances in an around the box, and we have seen a lot of oxs goal, especially since he came back from injury come from a central or left of centre position. Such as the genk goal at the minute he always seems to wide right to create any real penetration and utilise his best assests.

I don’t think it’s a ridiculous post mate. It’s not as if he is slaying the Ox just giving an observation of his opinion. Ox hasn’t been the same player since coming back from injury but that is expected. It doesn’t mean he won’t ever get back to being that player though. Ox versatility is a positive but I also think it’s his down fall. He’s not better than the front 3 or the midfield 3 (Hendo, Wiji and Fab) so he’s kind of left in limbo because he’s never going to displace them and he will get used to replace as and when.

JJ and Salah, what is ridiculous about the OP's post, exactly? He only gave an opinion on Ox's performances since the restart and indeed, he has been struggling to get back into the groove he was on before the lockdown, IMO.

Is he still feeling the after-effects of his injury recovery? I don't think so cos he was at full pel for several games b4 and including vs AM in the CL at Anfield and had his best game for LFC that night. I just think like a lot of other players, he is finding it a bit difficult to get back into full fitness and performance levels due to the break and how long it was. Just my opinion.

Johncrow and Salah. You have your view and I have my view. I don’t see how stating that a player isn’t performing to a level pre injury is deemed ridiculous by hey ho.
