      I was so happy when we signed him, and so gutted when he went off in that CL semi final. Hasn't been the same since and sadly now, he just isn't good enough for us. Harsh thing to say maybe, but its probably the truth. Definitely lost some pace and just can't seem to stay fit. Tries to do too much in the time that he gets, and that's understandable. Probably need to move on from him in the summer.

      I know he is coming back from injury and will take some time to get match fit but boy he stunk the the place out yesterday, luckily for him Trent had a even bigger stinker.

      Just looked so lost offering no midfield solidity or attacking presence almost as if he didn’t know what he had been asked to do.

      and yet when fit Klopp will always find some way to shoehorn him into the team, Klopp sure does have his favourites.

      Ox is simply not good enough, same as Origi.

      Nonsense.  There's literally no evidence to show Jürgen tries to always play Chamberlain.

      Underwhelming.

      Came as a big signing with league experience and a poor injury record, the only thing he has maintained is the injury record. Really wanted him to kick on but doesn’t look like he has the ticker for the fight. I know it can be difficult to be thrown into the mix after long injury layoffs but it’s hard to give him that as an excuse when others like Shaq in the same situation slot straight in and perform at a good level. Shitting out of tackles, head down, and hunched shoulders make him look genuinely disinterested.

      Wasted away in RW. Put him in the middle and let him run with the ball and it's a completely different player, like when he scored that thunderbastard against City a couple years ago (think was the CL).

      What a shambles of a career this lad has had with us. Absolute pisstake we paid 40m for him with his injury record. What really gets me is he’s lack of desire and application when he gets on the pitch win or lose the same attitude and approach he’s more concerned with making tik tok videos with his bird. Can f**k off back to Southampton in the summer and take Naby with him with the fee we could buy a decent replacement in Bissouma.

      He should be done here but being a homegrown player might save him for another year

      Yup we got fleeced but he did have half a great season before that knee injury finished him.

      Another player who will probably leave on a free in a couple of years.

      Doesn’t say a lot for Ox with Thiago who hasn’t played all week with a Knock and comes on today instead of him.

      His days look numbered.

      Anonymous when he came on again. Ran around like a headless chook for 30 seconds, then looked stuffed.

      I'll admit, I was hoping he'd come on for Curtis and add a bit of pace in front of Gini and Thiago but he did absolutely f**k all, don't know whether he even touched the ball.

      In hindsight a bad call by me ( I do have a lot of them hahaha) and Jürgen and the coaching staff. Guess I just finally  realized Ox ain't up to it for us!

      Wrong approach to the game when he came on no desire nor interest to get involved. There was a phase when Shaq was throwing his body around amongst two Leipzig players and Ox stood there watching unphased. Needs binning in summer.

      I feel a bit for him. But really if were going to move forward next season  we need better then him in the squad.

      Thats a few games now off the bench where he has done not a jot

      Yeah its a shame, but whether its injuries or motivation he is next to useless for us at the moment, I'd honestly rather play one of the kids, at least they'd put in maximum effort.
