Yes, I agree, we are in trouble (I don’t know how much).
This originally should be a problem for the whole team to responsible, including manager, scouts, management. Yet, for the past couple of months what I heard most was, Ozil.
Said it again, what I heard MOST.
Doesn’t matter you are 350k per week or just 50k, our problem is NOT the money figure, but the performance of the field. Ozil could not save the game for us yesterday, but quality is quality. We can see how average we were without him, we were so clueless in midfield.
Having quality player under-performing, which a deeper issue for me, is different from having lower quality player to under-perform.
Ozil did not live up to his standard enough is true, but I don’t agree to use his salary as a point for criticism.
Our team has enough players under-perform or being average week in and week out, and they don’t deserve their salary also, 10k or 50k, not matters.
