Definately. Doesn't have to be Radiohead but some type of music not aimed towards pre-teens girls like Minaj would be nice.

I think it was in a Soccer AM team-mates someone said Mad Jens used to listen to heavy metal before games to pump himself up. Thats how it should be.

Rosicky as well! These are the footballers we need.

Great performance by the kid today. He's coming on every game. I think its Gervinho and Theo battling for the wide positions til his form dips a bit.

Does any one else think that his best position is on the wing? I know Wenger has talked a lot about his ability to play through the middle but we seem so congested there

Wenger will play on the wings as he has all the attributes of a typical creative winger. He is a bit like Pires and Iniesta, tricky attacking midfielders who can pick a pass even when playing as a winger !!

You've not seen him play for us in central midfield so far? So ofcourse!

AOC wants to score more for Arsenal
Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is happy to have made an impact with the first team and has vowed to be more of an attacking threat to opposing defenders.

The midfielder, who was signed by manager Arsense Wenger for £12 million last year, has scored two goals in the league from seven appearances and has impressed the Arsenal faithful to such an extent that he has been nicknamed 'the Ox'.

Fans repeatedly chant his name during matches calling on Wenger to bring on the former Southampton player.

Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to maintain his good form this season with better performances and he told the club website that he used to be more of a poacher in his younger years than he is now. He says that he will focus on his end-product in the penalty box so as to become an even more deadly weapon.

"I scored a few goals at [former club] Southampton, but it's a big area of an attacker's game and it's one I've always wanted to work on particularly," he told the official Arsenal Magazine.

"When I was younger I scored quite a lot but that dropped off as I got older and went into midfield. It's something I always look to bring to my game - and if I can't score then at least I can set somebody else up."

The 18-year-old has enjoyed his recent run in the first team and he believes that the experience will help with his development.

"To be honest, when I arrived in August the main thing was just to get comfortable with my surroundings and gain in confidence," he said.

"Hopefully I already had the raw materials.

"I've learned a lot here and developed my game, but the main thing has been belief in myself.

"When you play in a few games and realise that maybe you can cope in the Premier League you do take confidence from it.

"That's what I've done - I do thrive on pressure and being put into these situations, and I'm looking to push on now."

Many journalists in the media even called on England caretaker manager Stuart Pearce to include him in the squad for the upcoming friendlies. But Pearce opted to give a call-up to Sunderland striker Frazier Campbell instead.

Oxlade-Chamberlain could next be in action against Liverpool on Saturday. But as Theo Walcott impressed against Tottenham with a brace last weekend, Oxlade-Chamberlain might have to content himself with a place on the bench for the match.

I am still a bit miffed on why he was not included in the friendly against Holland would have been good to see him against class internationals but that said I would rather have him 100% fit and sharp for Saturday...I am hoping he gets a good run at Liverpool...

Pretty easy to see why not, Young, Walcott, Downing, Welbeck, pretty much all of them start for their clubs. Where is the space to pick a youngster who hasplayed only a handful of first team games

Because all of the above have played a good few international games...and for an absolutely pointless game...why not,gives coaches a chance to see how he performs against other nationals for England,let him step up no point wrapping up this boy..he is chomping at the bit to get it on...just help him develope..don't over play him and it will do wonders...

You don't 'develop' players when you have a major tournament coming up. It is about working out who your best 23 are to take. Even if the Ox gets picked, he'll play a fairly minor role at the tournament

I agree with Chan. And I'm glad - I don't want Ox going to the Euros. Anyway, he played for the U21s, which was more game time and probably better experience frankly. No need to rush them.

I was so relieved to see him in the U21s, he hasnt even been that good for us in the last few games let alone pick him in the England Squad, give him chance please.

I think it is generally accepted that taking Theo to the WC was a horrible decision that has probably hindered his career

Young up-and-comer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed that he draws a lot of inspiration from the resurgent Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky.

The experienced midfielder has had his share of injury trouble in recent seasons, but as of late has been absolutely outstanding for the gunners and has been rightly been rewarded with a regular starting spot.

While the Ox also highlights the influence of main attacking players Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott and Gervinho, the way Rosicky plays in midfield has especially drawn Chamberlain’s eye as that is where he started his career.

Chamberlain told official Arsenal website Arsenal.com:

"I look at Theo [Walcott], Gervinho and Robin [van Persie] as the three main attacking players and more recently I have been watching Tomas Rosicky because he’s been outstanding.

Robin has taken most of the headlines and rightfully so with all of his fantastic goals but quietly I think Tomas has been playing absolutely amazing.

I started my career as a central midfielder and the way that he gets the ball in midfield, turns and runs at people just makes things happen."

At present Chamberlain is able to play both as a winger and as an attacking midfielder, but it seems Wenger prefers the young Englishman out wide due to his lack of experience.

As an exceptional talent the Ox has the ability to play both positions the youngster has already been touted as the future of Arsenal.

I completly agree with this...had said tho I believe the ox is or I should say appears to be more of a 'man' than what Theo was at the time of heading off to the world cup...says it all when Theo was there he was busy taking 'photos'.....

But he is still young and raw. The pressure of a major competition could suffocate his progress more than it will help him, after all he could have 5+ major tournaments in his career even if he doesnt go to these Euros. Imo, the olympics is probably a better stage for the Ox

a big tournament for what? he has plenty in the future, sending him to the euros is a terrible idea, he wont even play and get hyped far too quickly. Much better playing club football and proving yourself on that stage before stepping. up. The Olympics is a minor tournament which is why it'll be a good thing for the Ox.

Who 'needs' a big tournament? Can't think of any young player that it has done any good.
