What happened to Chamberlain? by KJ
The summer of 2011 was pretty hectic as an Arsenal fan and ultimately was an extremely negative experience. We lost not one starter, not two starters but three starters in Clichy, Fabregas and Nasri. It wasn’t helped by the fact that one of our biggest signings that window (before the mayhem on deadline day) was an 18 year old Englishman from league one that cost us more than £10 million.
Fortunately, as the season went on, Wenger was vindicated in his decision to pay such a high price for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He went on to perform MOTM performances against the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and even AC Milan.
