Was the best player on the park for 70 minutes by some distance for me tonight.

Really hope he can carry on proving me wrong - happy to eat a large fucking slice of humble pie if he does!

Agree, he deserves to keep his place over Walcott imo, Alexis and Campbell working hard will be a huge plus for us.

Quality assist for Ramsey's goal :barscarf:

Who'd have thought that passing forward yields such positive play? :D

Gibbs tried it at one stage and passed the ball straight to a Liverpool player :lol:

Really liking Campbell. Good passing and great workrate. Him and Alexis on the wings will make our squad a lot stronger than with Walcott or Ox.

Can't argue with that.

The first touch , control and pass for the Ramsey goal was absolute top class and so was his overall performance against Liverpool.
On current form and with even with everyone fit he now deserves to be in our best starting eleven

Has another very good game last night. He certainly is ahead of Ox and once Alexis is back and fit, I would include Theo as well. He plays for the team and puts in a massive shift defensively. I could see why he didn't get a run of games before, but he is really taking his chance. Hope that he keeps his place when Alexis comes back because Wally hasn't been cutting it.

Work rate is top notch, a few players could take a leaf out of his book. Love his sliding tackles as well. he really came back after that Swansea miss, I was worried that might ruin him.

His work-rate is right up there with Sancez (almost!) and he seems to have the right attitude. He has grown on me and it's good to see him getting some rewards for his patience.

Not sure what the Ox offers us any longer, Walcott is just a super-sub imo - bring him on to run at tired players on the break on the last 15....

Seriously?! Have you been on the loony juice.

Besides the fact that he has spent a good chunk of this season injured and now finds his way back blocked by an excellent Campbell, playing the Ox out wide is probably not his best position and he has to wait to get a CM position.
If he were to leave there would be a queue of top clubs wanting to sign him.
