Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 'We can build something special with England'

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 'We can build something special with England'

Oxlade-Chamberlain has excelled in central midfield and regularly been deployed out wide, while the England global ended the season playing right wing-back for the Gunners.

The England global, who opened the scoring in the Three Lions' 2-2 World Cup Qualification draw with Scotland on Saturday, is close to signing a new £100,000-per-week deal with the Gunners but the Merseyside outfit remain keen on securing his services themselves. They have football teams to put out and try to win things. I got a lot of caps quite quickly but due to injury I had a long spell out and there was quite a big gap when I didn't play.

'That can be hard, particularly in the Premier League given how competitive it is and how many foreign players who come over wanting to win things.

Yanez expected to take the stand today in Castile shooting trial
Whether the officer saw Castile's gun has become a key issue in his trial. "He had total disregard for my commands", Yanez said. Squad auto video recorded Yanez in the moments after the shooting telling a supervisor that he didn't know where the gun was.


'I came back and it was like a new squad and like starting again for me.

"Strange, but a new challenge and quite a refreshing one to be a part of".

Those opportunities seem unlikely at Arsenal as the Gunners boast the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Santi Cazorla and Mohamed Elneny, which suggests Oxlade-Chamberlain's future in North London lies out wide. "We've got a really good chance to build something special from the moment moving forward, so for me that's been the most positive step forward".

Gore goes third in draft
With their first pick in the 2017 draft the Padres shot for the moon with the selection of Whiteville HS (NC) LHP MacKenzie Gore. Committed to East Carolina University, the 18-year-old Gore is considered one of the top high school arms in the country.


"It's not my fault people keep putting me everywhere, " Oxlade-Chamberlain added. "I'm excited about the journey".

When he came on as a substitute against Scotland and promptly scored the opening goal he looked like he was playing with the vigour of somebody who had recently been forced to be a full back but was not being told to get back at the danger end again. Which did I enjoy the most? I have to focus in the wing-back role because I'm more open to going forward.

Bill Cosby chose to not testify in sexual assault case
When she tearfully took the stand to point the finger at Cosby, she recounted a tale eerily similar to that of Andrea Constand . District Attorney Kevin Steele's closing arguments were businesslike and direct. "What's she going to say tomorrow?" he said.
