Oscar in Ex Blues Posted September 16, 2016 5 hours ago, BlueLyon said: Not popular opinion but under someone like Conte and gaining experience, Oscar could actualy end up as very good midfielder. Even the likes of Xavi got better after age 26, I certainly believe Oscar will be much better than he is now once he gains experience and matures (his head is in right place). Now the question is if we are ready to wait 2 years or maybe even more. He is much better this season; his grit had come back, he creates chances and plays better most of the time, but I guess all this negative comments come from the fact that fans expect Oscar to play like Lamps and until he performs like that, people will never be happy with his performances. Exactly. We've controlled pretty much every game this season, unlike last year where we were getting absolutely dominated by virtually every team. I'm waiting until after the Liverpool game before I make my final assessment on his start to the season. If he plays well against a well coached Liverpool team then we can start rejoicing because maybe he's finally tuned a new leaf.
