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

    the current queen of England has done nothing except seen a World War and the startling decline of her empire.

    We can exempt her from the list.

    Personally I'd take the hit and pay his contract up and release him, if he truly isn't going to play another game, just let him go and remove all of the constant noise and chatter about him/the club.

    You missed “plagued by a chronic back problem”

    Perez was happy to let Özil go because he was sick and tired of dealing with Özil's father. And because he knew that Özil is replaceable and nothing special. Had he rated Özil as a special talent he would have done a lot more to keep him.

    I seem to recall something about his constantly taking himself off to visit a girlfriend in another country - perhaps his back was playing up even then

    Still no explanation by Raul as to why he leaked Mesut's name and why was Arteta not allowed to play Özil.

    The bum needs to explain himself

    Not playing because he is not good enough.

    He would be stupid to think he'll win the PR battle. The fans love Arteta too much for that

    This would be loss for Arsenal to me rather than a win in your Özil vs Raul thing. It's quite telling that some of you feel this way.

    Don't know about the father thing, might be true. Mourinho loved Özil, but when Ancelotti came in the summer 2013, something changed. Özil did very well at Real, no question about that. He was able to sideline Kaka, who in this thread has been cited as being levels above de Bruyne (Kaka in his prime).

    Starting ten straight games, rejecting a pay cut then not being featured since says a lot, combined with us being the only PL club to implement a pay cut anyway.

    We haven't needed him since which makes the 'footballing reasons' argument appear legit but it's pretty clear what happened here.

    hmmmm dunno about that one. Özil undefeated as it stands.

    Wenger, Emery, Ljunberg, all didn't stay on because of results. I wouldn't be surprised if he outlasted Arteta.

    He’s made anti minority rhetoric, wether it’s the black population, gays, indigenous, poor, refugees etc. He’s advocated giving the police more power to be heavy handed etc. At the least this touches on fascism.

    So when is he donating a months salary to take care of the 55 if his only worry was where the money's going?

    I don't have any issue with him asking for clarification or being sceptical - I would be in his position. However, your fellow teammates have all agreed to take a cut so either join or actually put your hand in your pocket of your own volition. Maybe, you know, convince your teammates to force the club to guarantee jobs. If you don't give enough ****s to do that then don't use it in an interview behind a paywall to state your ethical position. Straight out of the Boris Johnson playbook.

    If he has been dropped because of the money issue he only has himself to blame, could easily have put the club under pressure at the time but he didn't. Could have used this interview to say how he inquired about the 55 and what it would take to save jobs. He didn't. Club didn't back him over China? You really think he gives an actual toss? I haven't heard him mention it since other than from the interview yesterday.

    Forgetting all of that, if he was actually any good in these 10 games under Arteta, wouldn't someone somewhere come in for him? He is the most available player in world football FFS.
