The boy has burst onto the scene in explosive fashion since making his first league start for Arsenal against Manchester United last month.
So much so, in fact, that many Arsenal fans booed Arsene Wenger's decision to take him off.
Now I can understand the frustrations of my fellow Gooners when Wenger made that decision. It made me feel frustrated too.
What makes me laugh about the situation now is that a lot of these same Arsenal fans ridiculed the decision to actually sign Alex in the first place and now they believe he is the new Pele!
I won't lie, when we paid £12m for Oxlade-Chamberlain last summer I was a little concerned, but not angry, that we spent that much on such a young player.
But looking round various websites at the time of his signing you would have thought that Arsene Wenger had farted loudly in a lift full of people the way some reacted. They were disgusted we had signed another baby.
Yet, just six months later, these same people are hailing the Ox as the messiah of Arsenal Football Club. Our saviour.
Please, don't get me wrong, I love the fact that Alex is proving the 'doubters' wrong, but wouldn't it be refreshing if some of them held their hands up and admitted it too?
Of course I can understand why Gooners were angry because, at the time, we were set to lose Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
But maybe we shouldn't be quicker than Beth Ditto chasing an ice-cream van to judge new signings, no matter what the age.
In the past we (and I include myself) have all reacted badly to a new signing before the person gets a chance to prove himself. Especially to someone who isn't a superstar purchase.
Maybe the Ox proves that we need to hold our tongues a little because it can bite you on the bum in the future.
Wenger doesn't always get it right. Many of his past signings are tribute to that fact.
But I hope that some people have learnt to give some players time to prove themselves. Oxlade-Chamberlain is proof of that.
