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

    Then why are we interested in Aouar?
    He's not suited to CM either and we have enough wingers.

    Aouar is a 8, not a 10 like many fans seem to think. Aouar is also young enough that he can still learn to be a different player, something that Özil will never become.

    Gutted to see his slow death.

    Aouar is only 22.

    We're signing Aouar to replace Özil because Özil isn't up to it anymore.

    Özil should help out around the ground as he has a bit of free time and we've had lots of redundancies. With £350k a week I'm sure he could help out the kit man, the kitchen maybe even the social media team.

    He's brought in to play as an offensive CM like city have in Kdb, Foden and Silva.

    I was just trying to see how he's fit in that position, and he reminds me of Isco.

    Don't be. Every time I drive past his road I wish some of you lot could see how he lives :lol: The security gate was up and I couldn't even see the guy who mans it--you know how tempted I was to go down there and take some snaps with a written 'Jury' message, and then upload them here? Very :facepalm:

    He's more mobile than Isco but Isco is a slightly better dribbler.

    Isco is probably more suited playing deeper. More like a Thiago or a Santi.

    I think he has the tools to play right down the middle. Takes it on the half turn from deep and advances with his head up. Very intelligent in how he receives it and distributes it. He's not too proud to just knock it off sensibly even if he's beat a couple of players. I hadn't bothered much with the videos so far but I'm really impressed.

    I’m leaning on the side of disagreeing with this. Not sure what the Lyon coach was doing, but judging by the stats - he doesn’t have the defensive discipline to play CM for us. I don’t think Arteta would be comfortable putting him there in most games.

    My point was that he can get back up to it again.
    It’s a mental thing not a physical thing. He can contribute this season if he gets over the mental hurdle.

    Let us hope that this matter is resolved sooner than later because the longer it proceeds the worse all parties appear.

    It won’t look good on Arteta either if he freezes out a player for a whole year. They need to find a solution soon

    I don’t know but I like to consider the impact on future prospects joining our team and some might have reservations about joining a club with a manager who is not flexible enough.

    Just a thought.

    We lose 18 million pounds and annoy all the pro-Özil fans in our base while wasting a potentially valuable player that could have helped us gain top 4 or another trophy. Simple.

    We'll be just fine without him. It's not like he was instrumental in us winning trophies last season.

    So what happens if lose all the pro-Özil fans? If a fan stops supporting a club because we stopped playing his favourite player, then said fan wasn't a fan of the club in the first place.

    You could argue we've been wasting the 18m ever since Özil signed that contract.

    he shoud play and play well ....just to see the bum squad's bums burn. These would rather arsenal get weakened than Özil play. their hate has made them anti-fans.

    After what Wright said, it's hard to see him play in the league.

    Still think he has a potential use against teams that sit back. Our current new style is most effective against teams that press us high.

    We may lack the players to unlock more compact teams. If there is any form left in him, it's a tool we can use. It is a bit of a big if though, just as he really hasn't played much football. Similar to Bale at Sp**s.
