The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern had been hoping that their side would be involved in the Champions League this season, but it wasn’t to be. The Gunners were poor last term, and they deserved to finish outside of the top four, and it’s looking likely that they will repeat that feat this season too.
However, whilst Arsenal aren’t involved in Europe’s premier competition this season, that doesn’t mean that fans of the Gunners are not watching it.
To the contrary, the Transfer Tavern was filled to the brim with fans of all varieties last night, and naturally, Arsenal supporters were focusing in particular on a former Gunner – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The Englishman has enjoyed quite the resurgence since moving to Anfield, and he proved that last night with a wonderful strike to take the game to 2-0 for the Reds.
It’s fair to say that the goal hasn’t gone unnoticed amongst fans, with many taking to Twitter to discuss Oxlade-Chamberlain’s performance. Unsurprisingly, many fans are – as they often do – pointing towards Arsene Wenger as the problem.
With most arguing that the Frenchman held the Ox back, and others simply calling for him to leave the Emirates – Arsenal supporters clearly aren’t too happy.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
I see the Ox is proving he was restricted under Wenger
Already a much improved player with a better coach #WengerOut

Always rated Ox. Was clearly mismanaged by Wenger. Shame

Remember when Wenger didn't fancy Ox in central midfield?

Ox is single handedly proving how dated Wenger is

Klopp has massively improved Ox in less than 1 year.
Wenger couldn’t in 6 years…..#WengerOut

Amazing how the OX is flourishing at Liverpool yet wenger continually played him out of position and subbed him at every given opportunity and he never looked the player is now becoming..hmmmm

Wow Ox moved on to bigger things #WengerOut

The Ox finally living upto his potential under a coach who knows how to utilize his players. Give Wenger Messi & Ronaldo and he'll still struggle to win anything #WengerOut
