Mesut Özil: These Öz Ain't Loyal

Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by razörist, Aug 18, 2020.


Why do you believe he's been left out?

  1. Just football reasons

  2. Criticism of China

  3. Paycut refusal

  4. A bit of everything

  5. Mods should ban kash2 from the thread

  6. Mods should ban Oxeki and Jury from the forum

    What? They coming for your boy Laca after Özil is gone. 30 goals in 3 years, going to be hard for you to defend him.

    If they thought he was wrong, damaging their team, a negative influence etc, they wouldn’t like it. Auba is captain ffs.

    Özil (His PR team) doing his talking on IG for him vs the player actual doing his talking when he’s been on the pitch and making himself undroppable again?

    Man has been retired for years and he’s throwing a fit because he’s been dropped out of the squad likely do to a bonus playment setup in his contract which Ornstein alluded too (*see below) as Özil had ZERO problems putting his feet up and sitting at home on the club in the past.

    Let's hypothetically say that the reason that Özil was left out of the squad was because of speaking out about the treatment of the Uyghurs in China.

    Let's take stock of the situation.

    We have someone in Mesut Özil who's passionate about human rights and particularly issues that affect Muslim communities around the world and likes to use his large following on social media to highlight these hot button issues. On the other hand we have Arsenal Football Club, which is punishing Özil for making a human rights stand and essentially is siding with human rights abusers by punishing him for speaking out about this issue.

    Just imagine how angry this great Muslim human rights activist must be at the behaviour of this immoral football club, its essentially tacitly supporting genocide against a minority group that he feels religious / cultural kinship with. I'd be furious about it if I were him. He go so disgusted about this abhorrent behaviour by Arsenal FC....That he refused to leave the club under any circumstances :facepalm:

    When you take a step back you can see how ludicrous the whole angle is. It's so obviously PR spin from the Özil camp.
    Özil would have been out the door as quick as he possibly could if the club took the stance people on here are claiming regarding the Uyghurs / China issue. Given his outspoken nature and passion about these issues there's no way he'd want to be associated with Arsenal FC in any way, yet he stuck to the club like a limpet this summer.

    Jesus was dark skinned anyway so it was needless anyway.

    They already come for Laca, I no longer defend him. I like him as a player and think he’s alright and that’s enough for me.

    Im laughing at this tirade you’ve been on since yesterday, I’m laughing but I hope you’re ok.

    Seems more and more likely this has to do with his comments on China and the Uyhgurs. Of course, people will point out that Özil is friends with Erdogan.

    But people's heart can be in the right place and still have bad or even terrible politics. It's no excuse, but I'd say that's true for most people, otherwise we'd have socialism by now. I won't be saying anything further on this.

    Something here is off. Why is he still here? The club want rid of him and haven't registered him.

    Did he have no takers even on loan? Surely we informed him during the window that he wasn't going to be registered?

    We have played bloody willock out wide and to this day no one knows what he does. We have made bloody Willian a key player in our setup, but Özil can’t make 25 man squad. Özil today is even better player than the most expensive player of the club’s history. That’s how stupid this situation has become. Once again this club has shown how little class it has. I really can’t stand the Spanish cvnt of a manager we have. We already got rid of one and hopefully this one follows

    I think it’s a war, this is his way of making sure Arsenal pay him every penny he’s due. He’s not going to help them by going on loan and allowing another club to pay him.

    Based off what? Because his amazing PR team intelligently hinted at it in the last sentence of his statement?

    He played for Arsenal after the China issue. He stopped playing for us after the lockdown.

    Özil played after the China situation. It's a false arguement. He didn't take a pay cut, arteta is all about the team and no player being bigger than the club...Özil as a senior player should've been the first one to take it and lead by example.

    I hate the fact that Özil's PR team is making this about China....shows how sneaky they are...least not forget the club are stil paying his wages

    Top players go to war with clubs rather than leaving to play football.

    Was really hopeful that when he finally leaves next year a huge chunk of his rabid fanbase would f*ck off with him. But now I can see he will keep taking snide potshots at the club and those fans will cheer him for it, long after he's gone :facepalm:
