Mesut Özil: 2019/20 Performances

Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by razörist, Aug 9, 2019.


Why Isn't Özil Playing?

  1. Simple. Isn’t played for tactical reasons.

  2. Simple. Isn’t played because he isn’t good enough

  3. Falling out with Arteta for some reason

  4. Being frozen out in an effort to get him to leave. Arteta’s hands are tied

  5. Because he didn't take a pay-cut

  6. Personal reasons

    Is it me or is he the reason we looked better then we have in weeks?

    Still super poor of course.

    How many chances did he create today? I ask because I can't find the stat.

    If Emery wants to save his job, he has to play Özil as much as he can and pray that at some point we can create a better connection between Auba and Özil. These two rarely combine, and it has been going on for more than a season now.
    It's super strange because you'd think Özil would love to feed a pacy striker, but it clearly doesn't work for the moment.

    Guessing none based in that. He’s finally fitting in with Emery’s game plan.

    Jokes aside, those key passes may be them. Thought key passes were assists plus chances created..? And he didn’t have an assist.

    WTF!!! 6 recoveries is a lot!! Really even for a DM is a lot. Xhaka was averaging 2 tackles per game and 0.5 interceptions.

    But yeah, at some moments he went deep for the ball and started what Ceballos is supposed to do.

    Özil at home is usually quite good, it's when we play away he puts in poor performances. But you could see the difference in skill between Özil and our other midfielders.

    It's huge isn't it ? Ceballos got the turning circle of a Seat Cupra.

    The difference is insane, you can see the poor quality of our midfield. Even if we get rid of Emery for a new manager they will have the same problems.

    I don't think our midfield is poor at all. It is highly technical but used in a way that requires physical players rather than technical. Wenger, for example, would get much more from Özil and Ceballos because he wouldn't put them in a situation where they need to defend for 80 minutes and expose their weaknesses.

    Özil put in a shift yesterday. It doesn’t matter whether he divides opinion or not, we need him more than ever.

    Nope, Ceballos was doing Ceballos which wasn’t much at all.

    They both had their moments in the game. Different reports have them rated above each other fwiw. At the end of the day there can’t have been much between them in general play, either way, can there? Don’t see what all the vehemence is about really lol

    Welcome to the Özil thread (aka baby Beruit). Unlike the so called “Emery Lovers”, in this thread people are willing to lay down their lives for their idol. Please enjoy your stay and tread lightly.

    Against well organised teams, most chances are created by fullbacks and wingers because that’s where the space is. Chambers and Tierney’s crossing seemed to be our most productive route and cutbacks from forwards who drift wide.

    One of the reasons it frustrates me so much that Emery never or rarely uses 2 wingers.

    Ceballos was one of the reasons Wolves scored. He dosed off.

    I know, it was pathetic. I’d afford most players who aren’t defenders a bit of leeway in those situations though. I thought his general contribution in areas where he’s supposed to do well was much better yesterday though.

    No he was trash.

    Well ratings have Özil in very close proximity and even behind Cab in some so, your words, not mine.
