Mesut Özil (10)


#2696

Sanchez is surely leaving, but a little part of me still hopes Oz is staying in the end.


#2697

If he demands a monster signing on fee and huge wage not many clubs will be able to afford him.

For example @SDGooner Liverpool would never be able to compete for Ozil’s next contract.


#2698

But that means we can’t either.
But if it’s the choice between being paid a lot of money and a massive signing on fee as well as a chance to play for a club that challenges for the top trophies, or us, I’m fairly sure what his decision will be.


#2699

Exactly if we can’t afford to keep him in cosmopolitan London, Liverpool can’t afford to tempt him to move to Liverpool. And Liverpool aren’t competing for anything either.

If he leaves it’ll be one of the Manc clubs, maybe Real or PSG


#2700

Ozil’ representatives are doing a better job than Sanchez’ protecting his image.


#2701

You horrible cynic you :smile:

I prefer to opine that Ozil is emotionally torn, part of him desperate to stay in north London and turn things around at a club he’s grown to love in his 4 seasons here #yagunnersya :eyes:


#2702

If you have a chance to leave hell, would you take a pay cut? Or not asking too much?

Yes, with Arsenal he may ask for 300k+, but if can get out and be happy, play with better (subjectively) players and for a better team, he may not ask for 300k, maybe 200-250 is enough to capture him.

If he goes as a FA, a lot of teams would want his service and able to make that “big” offer.


#2703

Top form at the moment.

Edit: Understatement. He’s been magical tonight. Best player on the park.


#2704

If we let him walk we’re a big joke


#2705

We will, and we are.


#2706

Mesut I hope you stay but if you have any sense you won’t


#2707

Shut up! Who are you to tell him what to do? Maybe he does love us so he is staying in the end.


#2708

It’s going to be difficult to watch us when he goes. On another planet.


#2709

Footballing pornography, the likes of which not seen in an Arsenal shirt since Bergkamp, that hard to define class that separates them from other mere mortals.


#2710

we failed to have him sign the extension was already a joke


#2711

#2712

What a fucking player. Watching him is just pure football. A la Cruyff and Bergkamp this man exhibits all the good things about the game. Just hope he gets the backing needed to convince him to stay, because we’ll be far worse off without him on our side.


#2713

Yeah, Sanchez can leave, but Ozil absolutely not.


#2714

Plays like a 90s throw back. Almost like he doesnt belong in this era.


#2715

It’s a shame seeing such a beautifully talented player wasting his prime years at Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.
