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

    You most probably are. Shame, as it's a bit of a long post

    What he showed was that if we got a real attacking midfielder, instead of one that only shows up for 20 mins a game, we'd be a lot better.

    Once we finally get past the spectre that is Özil, and sign someone like Maddison or Ziyech, you'll remember what real attacking football looks like.

    Thanks for making me sure of this, could have at least quoted my entire post. I will remember this and when I will reply to your posts, I will only quote the part that interest me the most, from now on.

    I’d like grealish tbh he’d be perfect in a midfield 3 with a dm anchoring and another b2b In there, grealish also helps out in defense and gets back which all AM have to do nowadays

    First goal: Brilliant ball from Torreria that sliced the defense open, a great cross from Kola for a change

    Second goal: Özil plays a regular pass to Auba who is surrounded by opp players. Nothing special, a pass that any of us could have completed. Wonder goal from the boy Pepe

    Third goal: Outstanding pass from Özil to kick things off. It has to be said another great pass from Torreria preceded this.

    If Laca had missed the open goal header that Özil screwed up in the first half certain posters on here would have had a primary embolism

    Maybe we can get away with playing Özil against teams like Norwich/west ham/Newcastle etc. But the moment you play against one of the big boys you’re in trouble as you just cant afford to have a passenger for 60mins. You’ll get punished.

    Obviously it is some tax avoidance scheme. I mean we are all just in it for ourselves, right? There is no such thing as society, right?

    Well bollocks to all of that!

    Second goal, Özil involved in the goal.
    Third goal, Özil involved for another goal.

    These are facts.

    Now kindly, come back when he has a bad game. He has had just one all season.

    He played well in his last few games vs Liverpool and wasn't bad vs Chelsea... he's hardly had a bad game all season, so i'd say his attitude has improved and merits playing against city.... any of our other options will be so out of their depth in the #10 role vs City's midfield.

    Give him some cover and a runner so he doesn't have to track back as much and we good... he'll hurt City's current defense.

    But thats just it, “he wasn’t bad”. We need more than that. Its not like when we have played with him we’ve created lots more chances. It just seems risky playing with him against big sides. maybe the answer could be to play without a 10 role.
    on the other hand, why break up the team that won at long last.... its annoying because you just want that bit extra from Özil and its so rare that he manages to do it despite being the most talented player We have

    Shearer: West Ham couldn't cope with Özil .
    Tim Sherwood: Everything good comes through Özil. Declan Rice could not find the answer.
