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

    he can play 30 games and he will have no impact and no influence and people will still defend his **** show. You know it better than I do.

    I would compare his performances and ability to the rest of the squad.

    We've never had a world class squad since i think 2007, and he's been at the level I expect him to be.

    Some social media firm on kroenkes payroll probably has a few posters here too to ensure that the fanbase never unites and turns on the owner.

    they keep deflecting us into hatred of everyone but the toupee **** **** owner. Now we are supposed to hate our accomplished playmaker. Earlier we were supposed to hate our only capable CM and captain. Before that, the only defender we had who could clear a cross. Some social media firm is really earning its fee.

    So much better than everyone else in terms of football quality. Knows when to take his time and when to speed things up. He’s the only player I actually trust when he has the ball. He wasn’t amazing yesterday by any means but he’s the best player we’ve got right now and that’s a major concern

    His reluctance to shoot or inability to affect the game unless receiving the ball in space grinds my gears. Most here would argue that he’s more naturally gifted than Maddison but that’s exactly where I think our recruitment has been so flawed all these years. Talented but meek footballers.

    Look there are two types of opinions regarding Özil. Those who defend him by insisting that he is **** but less **** than others have a point.

    However, there is another camp that argues that he is still a world class/elite player who is suffering because of poor teammates etc. well these people are smoking some good stuff, because the world class/elite player in Özil died years ago.

    He is at his level because he is not good enough to be a better club than Arsenal at the moment.

    I am also surprised to know that he is at the level you expected him to be. It means you didn’t really rate him to begin with.

    I thought we were getting the best playmaker in the world (excluding Messi) who would tear up the PL under Wenger, ending up in the same tier as Arsenal legends like Henry, Bergkamp, Pires etc.

    I would have never thought he would have end up with a nothing legacy in 6 years while his former team would start winning champions leagues as soon as he left.

    he is so helpless when you don’t offer him space it is painful to watch. He has been found out because it is very easy to control him. We desperately need to replace him with a more direct CAM like Maddison etc.

    there was a time when people would argue that Özil is better than Coutinho :lol:

    I think the reality is he isn't where he was, but there's valid reason to pin more hopes on him doing something decisive than many others.

    The team looks better with him than without, but that's true of all of our higher quality players.

    The manager is the problem, and I think we won't see who is worthy of playing for this club and who isn't under the current setup. All these player threads are starting to feel damning in their irrelevance.

    His career has spanned one of the two triumphant era of Wenger's Arsenal career. Plus a Europa final...

    If you want more than that, then you need more than Özil, Alexis and Cazorla. And more than Cech as your goalkeeper.

    It's absolute bullshit to have OG, Walcott in your team and expect Alexis and Özil to bring you a league

    He made no impact he's good when we're geared up to roll over teams we're odds on to beat. He's coming to the end mate, he'd already be in a semi-retirement league had we not offered him a big deal. To get the best out of him from here on in we should be playing him against selected opposition in a free role.

    What would he know? Doesn't even make sense anyway. That's the dumbest thing he's ever said or done. Everyone knows Cesc was a level above. Best midfielder of his type we've ever had. I'd take Woj back as GK though.

    At the end of the day, Cesc would have been a better No.1o than Özil had he played there, and there's no comparison when you move him deeper, where he excels. Just better all round.

    Only way I'd accept Leno going in the short term was Woj coming back as captain.
