      Hes about as subtle as a brick on the pitch and he could go the sam way as Hendo and Milner in the way the result dictates how a lot of us will assess his game.

      He's working hard though and he's a battler no doubt. We won at weekend so thats enough for this week. When we are losing/drawing though he will frustrate if his end product doesn't improve.

      Agree to an extent mate but same true of all players.

      Phil was exceptionally frustrating last Wed but really good on Sunday.......difference was the end product.

      Good game last week. Wasn't a MOTM imho, though topped the poll (maybe having Arsenal fan Alan Smyth give him the MOTM swayed people too?). Was quick and positive, and took the opportunity after Mane's recent poor form well. Still overhits passes when looks easier not too, but starting to show some decent form.

      Not sure I'd play him back at the Emirates vs Arse if Mane is fit though..

      Yeah but i think Cou is able to decide his own fate in that he can and will win games for us. Ox your looking at 5 goals a season from so the result of matches will dictate whether or not people think hes doing well or not.

      Coutinho might be frustrating in the odd game but there's no doubting his status, Ox has to rely on the team i think.

      Different types of players and with different roles in team.

      I still think every player finds it easier when the team is playing well.

      http://www.espn.co.uk/football/blog/soccer-transfers/3/post/3319495/liverpool-arsenal-see-differing-results-after-keeping-philippe-coutinho-alexis-sanchez

      There was an awkward moment following Liverpool's Premier League victory at Bournemouth last Sunday, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain interrupted a postmatch televised interview with Philippe Coutinho following one question too many about his future at Anfield.
      "He's been the most professional person I've seen all season," Oxlade-Chamberlain said, as Coutinho struggled for the right words to describe his own situation at the club. "He's been top quality from the start and every time he gets on the pitch he does his all for the club.
      "That's the most important thing right now and it's not fair to ask those kind of questions."
      Coutinho, despite his reluctance to rule out another push to leave in the near future, has knuckled down and got on with the job since failing to secure an escape route to the Camp Nou and Oxlade-Chamberlain's actions reflect the sense among his teammates that the playmaker is making a contribution.


      Didn't see the interview, but AOC gets some credit in my book for giving Cou a dig out.
      Regardless what I think of Cou's exit strategy, I like to see players who stand up for their teammates.

      We can debate his price tag all day, but at the end of the day, he seems to be settling in, working hard, and becoming somewhat of a leader. I’m happy with that. Hope he realizes his potential with us.

      In his interview, he said he was a little disappointing for his performance and I thought that he played well. Hope his attitude continues to be the same. He looks fit as well.

      I always that he had pace only to his game but what do I know?

      Keep working hard Alex. He wants to be on the mouth of young kids. He's still young and willing to learn.

      Watching some of the LFC Christmas vids where Oxlade goes to a primary school in Liverpool and also to Alder Hey Children’s hospital he comes across as a great guy. Massively turned around on this lad delighted he’s a Liverpool player

      Massive improvement lately, good performances and comes across as a thoroughly decent, professional guy. The way he defended Couts against that vermin of a journo was brilliant.

      Glad he's an LFC player, keep up the good work Ox.

      We got ourselves a player here. His set piece deliveries these past few games have set us up nicely. Klopp is already getting more out of him than pecker head ever did.

      To be fair corner delivery aside I thought he was poor last night.

      He's a piano carrier who in the absence of the key players is expexted to become the piano player and he's not good enough for that.

      In a team with Salah, Mane, Firmino and Coutinho all the bad stuff is forgiven but when it falls on him to create and find a pass, I'm afraid he's not got it in him.

      Again a useful player to have, but you wouldn't want to be too reliant on him to load the bullets.

      I think his best position will prove to be in the midfield three. He's s grafter who has surprised me with the defensive and pressing side of his game plus he offers moregoimg forward from that position than the likes of Hendo, Can and Milner. As a wide player he will be hit and miss I think although I prefer him on the left andcutting in as at Burnley rather than on the right as he was last night. His set piece delivery was excellent last night which is just as well because we are about to lose our free kick taker.

      You and I watched a different game than mate. He worked his butt off to get the ball back, delivered 4 great set piece crosses, defended well, and was part of a few counters that fell apart because other people (Lallana). This kid is only going to get better under Klopp. Just watching him makes you realize two things.

      1. How good he can be with time to develop in our system.

      2. How good of a player manager Klopp is. To get the improvement out of the the likes Ox, Salah, and Robbo I’m just a short amount of time makes you wonder where this team will be two years from now.

      Thought he played well vs Everton, very hard working and gritty performance, but aside from that, I agree, he is a piano carrier, and that same analogy can be used for Hendo, Can, Wijnaldum , Lallana and Milner. We need a f**king piano player with Coutinho f**king off!!!!

      Nice little interview here. The following quote summarises Alex's life at Anfield

      “The biggest thing I’ve had to learn is how this manager likes to stop situations at source and how he likes to attack is slightly different to how my manager before [Arsène Wenger] liked to attack. There’s not really one right and one wrong way but after six years at one club certain things become second nature to you and it takes time to break that instinct.”

      I think Ox does a good job. I think he's a stronger defensive presence than Coutinho but still has the assists and goals too. Fantastic player, he reminds me of how Gerrard used to play. It's exactly what we need in midfield.

      Always wondered where that player that had scored that blitzer against Brazil in a friendly a few years back had gone. Seems that we've rediscovered him and in Klopp's case, reinvented him. I'm sure he's got a lot more to uncover with this player as well.

      Doesn't look like a class act when he first signed. Lacked game time at Arsenal and costs £35 million. Whenever he played, we've not won for his first few games. Looking like Klopp paid £35 million not for his natural footballing talent, but his ability to execute what Klopp tells him to do.

      I agree. If he carries on the way he's been playing in the middle for us, he will be half the play Gerrard was in his peak years, and that is a bloody compliment.
