      Absolutely gutted for the Ox. Just when he was in full flow and playing such an important part in our recent run of good form this happens.

      Hopefully he'll be ready for the new campaign and we can soften the blow for him with a nice Champions League winners medal.

      All the best Ox!

      tragic for him to miss the rest of the season and world cup. Class of him to be so respectful to put it in perspective to the fan in hospital.

      Paul Joyce reporting that it's not ACL, and the club hopes that he will be fit at the start of the next season.
      Still gutted for the lad but I'm sure it's softed the blow a bit for him.

      Looking at Ox injury history is not very re assuring.

      Hope we don’t miss this lad for the run in to the end of the season. He seems to have held the midfield the way our previous captain used to. Combination of grit creativity and some bit of mobility. Hope we don’t miss him too much.

      Ox's knee surgery was a success and he's expected to return for pre season.

      Great news.

      Was just reading that. Given the nature of his injury, having him for the start of next season is the best scenario, so really fantastic news.

      See that weapon Graeme Kelly saying Ox is out for at least 9 months.

      Poor start to his time with us, one of the worst debuts I’ve seen in a long time. But credit to him, I don’t like the guy but that’s a different story...but I have never been afraid to admit I was wrong ability/performance wise with any player, he has proved his worth in the build up to his injury with some vital goals and performances. Can’t ask for any more than that, can actually see a place for him in the team and just goes to show Wenger didn’t have a clue how to utilise him. Could be in for a big season.

      Why don't you like him mate do you mean on a personality level?

      I love how much he has embraced the club since joining. Seems like an intelligent and articulate lad too based on the interviews he's done.

      I was on the same boat as you, but to a lesser extent. And today, he is probably my fave player along with the "black Suarez" :D

      If he can regain full fitness and return back to what he has shown since Coutinho left, I can see him becoming one of the best attacking mids in world football!

      I think once we knew ligaments were involved that he was going to be out for a while. Not something that's going to recover in a few weeks. Feel awful for the kid who was playing great. Let's hope it does not impact his career.

      The only small crumb of comfort is that his injury is spread out across two seasons with a three month off season in between. 

      Regardless, I back him to come back from this sooner rather than later. He's clearly a determined and ambitious young man and it's good to hear that the operation was a success.

      Is this the same injury Mane had when he got hurt vs. Everton? He came back in 3 months time i believe.

      I assume after the operation is where they knew how long he'd be out for, so back Oct/Nov.

      Has got a young lad and his Dad two tickets to Kiev.

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44121606


      Liverpool fan Joe Jaggar was facing the prospect of telling his four-year-old son that their dream trip to the Champions League final wasn't going to happen.

      The flights to Kiev were booked, but the family weren't among the lucky 16,000 people who got tickets in the ballot for the game against Real Madrid.

      Enter Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to save the day.

      "I went to bed on Friday night in a stinker of a mood. I fell asleep and woke up about 4:30am and scrolled through my notifications, when I saw two messages from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain saying he had got me two tickets," explained Joe.

      "I started crying when I saw the messages. I'm not even ashamed to admit that. I couldn't believe what lengths he had gone to for me and Bobbi."

      Joe lives in Cumbria with wife Claire, eldest son Jay, 12, daughter Lola, eight, and youngest Bobbi.

      Bobbi previously made the headlines back in April, when he was given the Ox's match shirt following the Reds' 2-1 win over Manchester City, after the midfielder went over to hug Bobbi and presented him with the memento.

      After watching the Reds book their place in the final on 26 May, Joe was determined to make the trip to Ukraine.

      "I booked flights to the final in the taxi coming home from John Lennon Airport after the Roma game. Everyone was asleep and I quickly got three seats before the priced rocketed," Joe told BBC Sport.

      "It's a direct chartered flight especially for the game.

      "I booked three tickets for me, Bobbi, and my dad. We had four chances at the ballot, and also knew quite a few people who had entered it too.

      "But then I got the email saying I had been unsuccessful, so I tried my best, but every avenue I went down, I just couldn't get any. I just kept hitting a brick wall.

      "It was soul-destroying to be honest, but we were going to go regardless of whether we had a ticket."

      Joe woke up in the middle of the night to two messages from the Liverpool player, letting him know the good news

      England midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain, who will miss the game through injury, became aware of the family's issue on social media and messaged via Instagram to say he had a pair of tickets for them.

      "I tried waking Bobbi up but he was fast asleep, so my wife told him in the morning.

      He said 'Really, dad?

      For the Real Madrid game?'. 

      It will be his first European away.

      "He is Liverpool mad and after going to the games against Porto, Man City and Roma he was desperate to watch the final in Kiev.

      "There are no words to say what it means to us. Bobbi will never forget it - I'll make sure he doesn't."

      Joe and Bobbi will be travelling to Kiev with his 65-year-old father Colin - who managed to get a ticket via a friend.

      "Oxlade-Chamberlain is the most humble guy, and he doesn't even realise that what he has done is such a grand gesture," added Joe.

      "Alex just oozes class. He will never know how much this means to me and Bobbi.

      We are so grateful for his generosity."

      Agree with that. Proved to me why Klopp is manager and we ain't.

      Was reading how their scouting team set up reported back to Anfield saying that we "had to get Mo."
      Seems like its firing on all cylinders now ....on the players being brought in (E.g Robbo) ...after the transfer committee bollocks and politics with Rodgers.

      If he can get back to full fitness and play how he did during the latter half of 17/18 , I have a feeling he will be up there with the very best attacking players in world football!
