I still vividly remember the day we signed Oscar, I was like "fuck me! Have we really pulled it off?! What a gem! A gem that can be discussed on the same page of Neymar!"...... Well we all know what's happened next, now I am like "fuck me, period".

 

Brazil's true 10. Was a part of the squad who got them to an olympics final, and was seen as the next Kaka.

 

Good lord has it all gone off the boil for him.

Mikel and Oscar do compare quite a bit... Contrary to what you're saying, any one that knows anything about football would know they have actually had a similar pattern in their development. (Not a dig at you Joker, more so at SMDPSG). I'll detail how they do below.

Mikel was once considered a world class talent, believe it or not. He led his Nigeria to the finals of the U20 World Cup in 2005 where they lost to Argentina. He finished behind only a certain Lionel Messi in the Golden Ball award. He was seen as a huge talent from then onwards. Oscar is another player that shone massively in the U20 World Cup, hence why he was so heralded - he did after all score a hat trick in the 2011 final in which Brazil won. Both were considered massive talents at a very young age.

Don't forget that Mikel scrapped a massive, controversial transfer saga between us and Manchester United. Surely, if he wasn't considered such a huge talent at the time he wouldn't have caused the above. I'm pretty sure you are well aware of the details of Mikel's transfer to us. Huge things were expected from him, he was seen as a potential world class midfielder. Oscar similarly had a lot of clubs after him after his showings in the 2011 U20 World Cup.

Both came at the club as massive talents and were seen as players that had the potential to be world class midfielders. As we all know, Mikel did not develop as well as we wanted to - various reasons for that i.e. him having his position changed from originally being a number 10 to a number 6-like anchor man, him not developing into a star at all etc... While IMO Mikel is not a bad player, he certainly isn't good enough to be a starter for us. Very solid squad player IMO though. I can easily see the same happening to Oscar. It's scary how his best game IMO for us was his Champions League debut three seasons ago. He hasn't developed as well as he should have despite having an ample amount of game time (just like Mikel) and he definitely hasn't shown enough over the last three seasons that he is good enough to be a nailed on starter in his position and one of the best in his position in the world either.

I used to be a massive Oscar supporter, until after a few months ago, you can check my posts. I have run out of patience with him though. If you believe that Oscar still has the potential to be one of the best number 10s in the world then fair enough but I've seen that that ship has sailed a long time ago. I didn't want to bring Eden into it but one thing I will always remember is how some said that Oscar will be a better player than Eden. That's how highly he was rated. Now anyone would laugh if you suggested the same.

Unfortunately, he just isn't a special player like that. As I've said many times before, he'd be a pretty good squad player and he isn't useless but we can definitely do better. Luckily for us, Oscar has a pretty high market value it seems, so I definitely wouldn't hesitate to sell if a nice offer came in.

Say it ain't so. We need to cash in on him ASAP.

A bit self-serving, but fair enough. :)

Oscar is still only 24, so I feel that despite his lack of progress, it may be premature to proclaim he's done for.

Only one of us can be 100% wrong on this one. :)

he'll be 25 in the summer, and still plays like a 16 year old. really is a useless player, and we can probably make a profit on him, because of his undeserved hype. need to sell

BREAKING: Juventus have turned down Chelsea's offer of £35 million and Oscar in exchange for PAUL POGBA, with officials at the Italian club claiming they would be happy with just the money. (BT Sport)

BT Sport is reliable, isn't it? So not even Juventus want Oscar anymore. I'm wondering if they would be happy with only 35 million or if they want more cash instead of Oscar.

Didn't t take Hiddink long to figure out Oscar is rubbish.

Pity it took Mourinho about 3 years to notice.

the club without Mou thought it would be better to keep hold of him despite putting pressure on him to take the deal during the last transfer window

Mou made a mistake, but it seems that the club continued, that's not on Jose.

KdB is the better player but perhaps not the better person, but yes, one big fail!

I had no problem in Mourinho's decision to get rid of Mata and keep Oscar. That decision was his alone and it's the decisions he's paid to make - Unfortunately it didn't work out, Oscar's continued to fail to reach up to his potential and has honestly been riding off that sublime match v Juventus, 4 years ago :lol:. If I give Arsenal fans shit for Wilshere having a one off game v Barcelona and riding that, then Oscar's no exception to the rule.

I'm sure he'll thrive in a new environment, where he'll feel love and adored (by someone else who isn't his sister..).
