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

    I’ve never even paid that much attention to him refusing the pay cut anyway. The worst part about that is all his teammates accepted it and he didn’t, despite being the highest earner by far.

    It’s not as if the representatives of all his teammates are all dim lows and wouldn’t have been thinking along the same lines that Özil’s would have , yet they all accepted it... I somehow doubt that all the players that thought less of him are now patting him on the back, praising his amazing foresight. The idea is absurd.

    It's always nice to hear our rivals speak positively about us, lets us know the work we were doing in the academy was fruitful.
    Unfortunately I have to respectfully decline right now. Being @GDeep™ son brings all kinds of positive benefits like hugs and tickles; I don't see the sauce squad competing with the emotional fulfillment I'm getting right now.

    1. Kroenke is a ****
    2. The Sokratis situation is nothing like the same, but if he chooses the same bum route, he’ll be the same. Why wouldn’t it be? He is no massive favourite here... lol But let’s not pretend his profile is the same as Özil’s, so no, the disappointment won’t be on the same level and his thread definitely won’t be as active.

    Just because I don't kiss the ring and praise Özil doesn't make me a hater. If you consider me a hater just because I want the best for the club, then so be it

    We’re not your rivals. Think of us as the LA Lakers and the bum squad/usual suspects as Real Madrid and Barcelona.

    Either way, I respect your decision. Door’s always open for you lad. Just remember live by the GDeep die by the GDeep.

    Sokratis has already said if he doesn't get play time he'll move. He's already said he won't be satisfied sitting on the bench collecting his paycheck

    Özil without the ball is one of the worst players in the world. On the ball we know what he’s capable off but we’re not a team that dominates 70% possession in opponents half anymore. Özil off the ball doesn’t track back doesn’t look Interested doesn’t run. Can’t have that in this team he deserves to be frozen out

    it isn't always what people do that offends, but the way that they do it

    it wouldn't surprise me if Özil left his representives to do the talking rather than speaking to Arteta himself, and that would surely not have gone down well

    Hasn't he done a "GDeep" and said he is staying though?

    This. Totally. It’s not the pay cut per se. It’s the principle of everyone sticking together and pulling in the same direction in a time of crisis.

    Of course, there are plenty of times when you need to stand up as an individual. But this case didn't seem to be a great candidate.

    If you put it that way then yeah, Özil's a piece of ****. But when you consider the reports that Özil wanted insurances and that now others feel lied to, its obviously not Özil's fault here.

    Özil is on the most wages at £350k per week. Him agreeing to a wage cut would have had more effect than any other player and may have saved jobs.

    What are you talking about? The club promised the players if they took the wage cuts no one would lose their job, they've now broken their word. Özil and whoever the other two were that refused are completely vindicated.

    You gotta laugh at the idiots who took the wage cuts when we are owned by a guy worth 10bil though. Talk about being suckers. Prime candidates to go bankrupt after their playing careers.

    All of you are looking at this wrongly. Do you know how many jobs was saved by the paycuts the players took?

    Why are you all looking at the 55 laid off?

    Even the executives/management of the club took paycuts ffs

    Both Özil and Kroenke are cünts. It's not really mutually exclusive.
    Özil is far and away the highest earner at the club.
    If Özil had taken a paycut, who knows how many staffs would've kept their jobs?

    There was never any vindication at stake. This is just something created by people who are looking for Özil’s decision to be vindicated! They are thinking along the wrong lines.
