I was thinking about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain... now, you could probably do all sorts of statistical analysis to figure out whether he's been a worthy purchase or not, taking into account his injuries blah blah blah. But that's not how it actually works in my head. When he scored his second goal today, and THAT goal against city, that is some return on investment. And, as irrational as it is, I think he's already repaid half of his fee. It's this sort of primitive thinking that saw me have all sorts of time for Garcia, who some idiots thought wasn't productive enough, or was wasteful, or I don't know really, I try to keep poisonous influences out of my life. Even at the end when he was not doing much with regularity, I still had time for him. I think his header against anderlecht is the best header of all time. Throw in juve and that's most of his fee right there. Some of what sits with us is entirely results-based, the rest is just a series of moments that have their own value. But of course it's not always about the goal itself, but the appetite for it. Benteke's bicycle kick was fantastic, but I'd rate it at a cool million, because Crouch played it out. But when Can did it? Similarly Coutinho was the best outside the box curler we've had, but if you've seen one of his goals, you've seen 10 of them. Like Coutinho in general, there's value in selling once you've had your fill. Oxlade's second goal yesterday is probably around 5 million for me, because it was completely unexpected. It's not just that wing play goals are always on the menu right now, and we clearly need something from midfield. It was completely unexpected. The last time I saw a goal like that was Gerrard. So yeah, a couple more like that and I'm fine with Ox, honestly. I'm a simple man.
