Ox wasn't outstanding by any means in the first half of the season but was very good after that. His performances in central midfield contributed a lot to making sure Coutinho leaving didn't derail the season.

These sort of stats aren't perfect, but Liverpool looked a better team with Oxlade-Chamberlain in central midfield than without him for sure.

Indeed.

Daley Blind: Ajax agree deal for Man Utd & Netherlands defender

Manchester United have agreed to sell Daley Blind to Ajax for a fee that could eventually rise to £18.5m.

Blind, 28, joined United from Ajax for £13.8m in 2014, when fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal was in charge.

Able to play in defence or midfield, Blind was a regular under Van Gaal - but his appearances have reduced since Jose Mourinho arrived at Old Trafford.

He did play in both the 2016 FA Cup final and the following year's Europa League final victory over Ajax.

It is understood the Dutch club will pay an initial £14m to re-sign Blind on a four-year deal.

...18 now :lol: . Apparently they're playing Irdning, an Austrian football club... but I can't trace much information about them.

Edit: 19 :lol: :fp: .

Edit: Irdning has a population of under 3,000. I'm assuming that the football team isn't... uhm... world class.

Edit: 20.

Edit: 22. Everton are literally scoring every minute now :lol: .

City furious about Jorginho situation. Claim Napoli bullied him into going to Chelsea and said they'd force player to see out last two years of his contract if he didn't go there. Napoli 'unprofessional' and City 'never seen an agreement reneged on like this before'.

Boo strawberry floating hoo :lol:

Looking at 10-11 secs I’m concerned for your cousin, she looks like she’s being held against her will. But anyway, cool news.

Liverpool FC statement says doctors have confirmed that Dejan Lovren had concussion whilst he was announcing himself as one of the best defenders in the world

S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)
