Hi it's Alex, just been playing table tennis with Hendo, I'm here now to answer any questions that you send in so keep them coming! #askAOC
@jonandri: Who is your best mate at Arsenal?
Ummm, I get on well with everyone but I think I spend most the time with Carl Jenkinson and Manny Frimpong!
@katieelfc: Who is your favourite teammate in the U21s and why?
I like them all but I get on really well with Josh, Henri, Jordan, Flano, Jonjo and Gards, so pretty much the whole team!!
@tridiarteta: Who's the fastest player in your club? Theo or you?
I've never raced him but I think he's quicker than me even though I hate to admit it - aha.
@James_Isherwood: If you were not a footballer what would you be doing instead?
Wishing that I was a footballer!! My mum always wanted me to go to uni so I would have probably been bullied into that - lol
@Steve_Bennett85: Who was your footballing hero when you were little?
Growing up I would have to say Thierry Henry, but more recently it has to be Messi....
@gtfc_matt: What's your favoured position, right wing or centre midfield?
I like playing in both positions but have found most of my recent success on the wing, but can also see myself playing more central
@SaskiaBowes: Who is the worst dressed at Arsenal?
I’ll have to say Carl J simply because he tries so hard and thinks he looks ledge, but sorry mate.. you ain't as nice as you think!
@Adamrthomas: Strictly or X Factor or neither?
I hate Strictly!! X Factor everyday of the week! Vote @nuvibeoffic!!
@Ste_Collins: Hi Alex, just wondering if you have a nickname and if so what is it?
Everyone calls me Chambo... But I've been hearing a few shouts of "the Ox" recently! So either or :)
@Andy_Evers: If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have one item would it be a football or an ipod?
An iPod! The music would keep me going and allow me to chill...a football would mean I'd have to run around!
@Arsally: You said you’ve just been playing table tennis with Hendo, and who won?
He beat me! But I had been champ for way too long anyway, beating half the team b4 Hendo stepped up so I was ready to come off!!
@TheGolfBandit: Who's the toughest defender you've played against so far?
Fede Bessone who was at Charlton now at Swansea. I couldn't get past him all game!!
@Harris_Gooner: Who's been the biggest help to you so far at Arsenal?
To start off with Theo helped me out a lot, but everyone has helped me especially the manager and coaches.
@mj_thorne: Chambo, who was the best player you played with at Saints?
Adam Lallana!! The stuff he used to do in training was unbelievable... Keep any eye on him, what a player!
@connor_parry_10: Would you rather play alongside Messi or Ronaldo?
Both!! But if I had to pick one it would be Messi!
@eteurec: How did you feel scoring in the Champions League for the Gunners and a hat-trick for the England U21 team?
It was an amazing feeling scoring in the Champions League and the same for the U21s! It was also a proud moment...
@Scrivens97: Hi Ox what is the feeling like when you walk out of the tunnel at the Emirates?
It was an amazing feeling and one I hope to have many more times playing for the Gunners!! :D.
For those of you that have asked, I'm currently not on twitter but have enjoyed tonight and might make an account soon :)
Thanks for all your questions tonight, sorry if I didn't manage to answer a few, thanks for all your support, take it easy.... Chambo! :)
