View Full Version : Should Oxlade-Chamberlain start at Euro 2012?

I was gonna make a topic asking if he should be in the squad, but if he continues to produce performances like he has done today and has done whenever he has been given a chance, then I donít see how he canít be in the squad.

Itís just a matter of whether he starts or not, heís sick, mad fast, runs at players and beats them, has strength, and likes to score goals. Obviously he is still very young which is a good thing is because he will only get better.

Actually Fabio Capello has long been a fan of Oxlade Chamberlain and has wanted to take him to the Euro's before a ball was kicked this season.
Pat Rice said that Fabio wants to take Oxlade to the Euro's but, will only take him if he gets games for Arsenal this season. (this at the beginning of the season)

Wenger promised him that he will get games this season, however, I think Wenger purposely kept him under wraps until 2012 as he knew Capello intended to take him to the Euro's & he didn't want a repeat of Wilshere where he had played a whole season & then was asked to go to a summer International tournament.

But, Oxlade is a favourite of Capello's

So because Capello is a fan of his he should start yeah? What about the benefit of the team? You're talking about a man who is also a fan of Stewart Downing remember (let me add, a player MOST of the forum dont rate)
It's too early for the Ox thats no reflection of him and his performances so far but he only has a few more months of the season left and I feel a lot of fans (rmaybe they will be right) are going to be gassed over today, lets not forget what happened to Theo.
Ox is a quality prospect and im sure he will win and represent England many times, I just feel the Euros have come too soon for him.

Ashley Young has been England's best player last few games. If anything he should take the right wing off whoever has that and Young goes on the left.

Read my post again then ask yourself if I said anything like this.

Generally when people try to paraphrase they should do a better job.

Should Oxlade start at the Euro's? I have no problem with it, people talk about Theo going at "sixteen" and Oxlade going at 18 like it's the same thing. They also forget players Like Muller who they were gassed about for Germany who performed for them at 18. When Rooney went to the Euro's at 18 there was a debate about the wisdom about it before and he was by far the best player for England at the tournament.

What I like about players like Oxlade & Morrison as compared to the Young's, Walcott's etc is that they are more rounded talent, because they have good passing ability, speed & are goal threats. It will be mostly about whether Oxlade is mentally ready for me & I don't know much about his mentality.

Tony Starks
4th February '12, 04:17 PM
Sturridge, Rooney, Oxlade should start. Wellbeck for Rooney in the games he's banned

And its not a matter of getting gassed off one game, I've assessed the players potential and quality and there's no doubt in my mind he should start.

Sturridge shouldnt start imo, id have Welbeck over him.
Neither should Darren Bent, in fact he shouldnt even make the squad.

Lets just say this, if he goes/starts and makes errors that lead to goals, and performs generally like a lower league player his confidence could be shattered, this is why I feel it's too soon for him

Because Capello is a fan of his it makes him more likely to start.

I like Tony Starks attacking line up although I'd have Darren Bent ahead of Welbeck, but have Welbeck as an impact player.

If the only other option is Walcott then The Ox should definitely be starting.

BTW I'm very excited about Oxlade-Chamberlain, he looks a brilliant player from what I've seen. Obviously we can't get carried away but he's impressed me. He had a few moments today where he made the wrong pass or shot when he should have passed, passed when he should have shot etc but all the signs are there that he's gonna be a problem.

I would take him over Walcott without hesitation.

I'm a big fan of Chamberlain but the fact that we're talking about whether he should start or not says more about the England squad than it says about him tbh.

Hopefully he gets a decent run of games this season and goes into the summer with confidence.

Also, if he's gonna end up playing in the Euros, Wenger shouldn't really allow him to play in the Olympics IMO. With Arsenal's luck, he'll get injured for the entire 2012/2013 season.

Gas level mainly generated by the media and not helped by Capello for including him into the England squad before he'd even kicked a ball.

And yes, anyone who watches football will be able to tell that Alex is a superior player to Walcott. You want me to break down why I think this? tbh you should be able to to tell for yourself.

4th February '12, 05:44 PM
Nah Oxlade looks a talent, I dunno if I said that in the match thread today, or in previous ones or not. I think he will go onto be an excellent player, if not world class, assuming he has a strong head and people around him.

I just find the "Oxlade for England" chants - started by admittedly Piers Morgan a little much considering he's had his first (what I would say) excellent game against Premiership opposition - even if they are one of the worst teams in the league and had 10 men.

Taking nothing away from his performance today, but it was good, but does a good performance by an England lad always have to result with immediate wanking. It's not just him, we had to endure Cleverely at the start of the season!

By all means, take him as an option off the bench though.

Then we're in agreement. The what do you call it, erm consensus was in the last tournament that we needed a player to unlock defences, Oxlade fits that bill -but perhaps as a bench player.

In all honesty, what ive seen so far the boy is going to be a regular starter for England for many years but lets not push him too soon, say he goes to the euros, doesnt play...it's Walcott 2.0 all over all again, it could harm his confidence, lets not forget he is still only a kid.

well when theo comes against the run of the mill lb/rb more time than not he struggles, on his day yes theo can look very good but those days hardly come around and when they do its moments in a game more than him taking the game by the scruff of the neck and us as fans thinking wow this was theos game

right now ox is a shining beacon of light he's what we've been waiting for, i only hope arsene doesn't over use him like he likes to do, rotating ox, gervinho (who now has to fight for his place back) and theo will be a very good thing for the team.

i would throw cleverly in with that 4 man midfield with parker behind the 4 and rooney up top probably

but back on topic, AOC is only young still hes having a good start same way alot of our current squad were sick when they started.. he should definately travel and be picked if his forms good because playing a young player in big games when they arent mentally prepared usually fucks them and us over.

See what happens nearer the time i guess but Capello will blatently be a knob and play a stupid midfield like Downing Lampard Barry Walcott and we will all be mad :laugh:

If he performs better than Walcott for the rest of the season then he should really make the squad ahead of him, but starting is a bit much for a player who has only played for the under 21's a handful of times. Walcott has been dire every time ive seen him this season.

Erm...he was the best player on the pitch in his debut back in October when he scored against Olympiakos, he's been solid in all of his Carling Cup appearances, he was the best player on the pitch when he played against Man Utd and he scored 2 goals on his first PL start.

Most of us have been saying he should play since the Olympiakos but Wenger likes to give young players a 6 month adjustment period before playing. A policy he made because he saw how overexposing Walcott to first team stunted his development through injuries and what not.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he's a world beater but he's clearly quality for his age. I wouldn't start him for England on merit alone but the fact it's debatable shows; a) how good he is already and b) the England squad is lacking depth.

International is different from the prem as a football fan you should know this, Bent has never done it for England when given a chance....he has fluffed numerous chances, as stated say what you want about Crouch but internationally his record is as good as many top quality strikers for their countries.

You also must know you can only score against the team in front of you, and Crouch has delivered time and time again, he's scored at the world cup, offers something different and scores goals which is what strikers are meant to do, so yes, I would pick him over Bent.

3 of his 4 goals were in competitive games - he has 13 caps, I'd guess most of them were sub appearances in friendlies. His record isn't bad at all. He should definitely be one of the 4/5 strikers taken in the summer.

I would go with Rooney, Welbeck, Sturridge, Bent and maybe one more (perhaps Agbonlahor).

How many chances did he need to bag those 3 goals?
I cant remember what game is what, may have been the Switzerland game but he missed an absolute sitter, was a disgusting waste by a player who is considered 'International Class' im sorry if Bent is one of the best 5 options we have we are truly more fucked than we appear, he would get nowhere near my squad.

England are shit, that shouldn't be a surprise. Rooney is the only top striker (when he's on it at least), Welbeck and Sturridge have potential.

He missed a chance? So does every centre forward, he's not the type to get down about it.

A chance? LOL, do you watch England regular (if no I wouldnt blame you) he probably has a 12% conversion rate..he misses glaring opportunities.

The only one I can remember was Switzerland (or Wales?).

He's not going to start, realistically he's a better option than Crouch. Punt ball up to Crouch, he jumps on the defender's shoulder, free kick to opposing team.

No

lol @ anyone that thinks Ox is going to be playing when Gervinho comes back

Quick question Arsenal bros, Ox or Gervinho? Theo will be starting on the right wing for England/Arsenal for the rest of the season. Ox is good, he had a good game yesterday but put Lahm/Ramos/Sagna in front of him and he wont be as effective imo.

The only problem with Theo is consistency, on his day hes better then the Ox


oh shit, when gervinho comes back, i forgot, oh yeah, sorry, but gervinho needs to know what he can do tbh instead of getting past the whole opposition n wasting the opportunity he needs to make that killer pass tbh

hopefully not, he aint bitchmade like Wilshere:dozey: its hardly wilsheres fault he broken a bone and then having it refracted


r/s

Dont worry bros I can confirm the hype will die down once Ivory Coast have won the ACON




theo>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>ox:laugh:


Only Sturridge has more to offer than the Ox right now as he's been consistent the whole year and i'd start those two. No one else is impressing similarly, where was Ashley Young today?

And its not a matter of hyping over 1 game cos Walcott was on fire yesterday and got three assists, I'll still gladly say Ox should start over him..


No way should he be starting at this Euro's.start maybe not but most people are saying he shouldn't go but as ive stated and a few others, if he continues with these kinds of performances then he should definitely feature for england, their wingers and most of the other players are pretty bland and lack ideas when things get tough
