Mesut Özil (10)

I’m glad he was dropped even if I don’t think he should have been because it shows that at least our manager is willing to make big calls for games.


#4387

LoL! Basically saying Ozil lack cojones :rofl:


#4388

Considering his replacement was Mkhitaryan, the physical intensity or cojones argument doesn’t hold much.


#4389

When the choice is to play the woeful Mhki instead it comes across as rather odd.


#4390

I love Mesut but does this score happen with him?


#4391

Massive league result without Ozil. Does this mean anything?


#4392

Mesut Whozil?


#4393

Lads he is now rested and ready to bring the pain to United


#4394

To be honest, maybe we play better without Ozil. Ozil at his best is a treat to watch of course, but he can go easily missing too. Don’t know what to make of today’s excellent game and result. We played so, so well without him.


#4395

Still of the opinion that Özil makes us better when all is functioning correctly.

However, he needs to adapt to Emery or he’ll become a casualty of his tenure.


#4396

I don’t think you can necessarily say we play better without him while people are slagging of Mkhitaryan every week.

He probably still has some adjusting to do but I think at some stage this season Ozil will start to look great under Emery.


#4397

I think it’s becoming increasingly clear he isn’t an essential piece of this side now or going into the future. Hardly anyone bat an eyelid by him missing today.

He’s a luxury to have and is capable of consistently excellent play


#4398

HE won’t press as well as Ramsey/Laca but he will link up much better than Ramsey and control possession better. And yes Ramsey had a decent game today.


#4399

:eyes:

Özil always goes missing around this time of year for a couple weeks. It’s definitely strange.


#4401

If it’s not a genuine injury, then it’s wholly unprofessional on the player’s part.

Something smells fishy, though. If it’s a genuine injury, aren’t we alerted earlier in the week? If it’s a warming up injury, aren’t we told the same?

I get the feeling we’re becoming tired of this as Arsenal fans


#4402

Tbh if he’s prone to back spasms they can flair up at anytime without notice, he may have been fine on Thursday as they can flair up very rapidly.


#4403

I’m so tired of this. It’s pretty clear something isn’t right between Emery and Ozil. Emery isn’t going to say that to James fucking Olley after a big win like that.


#4404

Hes probably just injured lol

Had a real chuckle at this. @Calum @JakeyBoy :arteta:
