    This summer has broken people, you had people ****ting on Emery because he didn't know who some random kid in the academy was and now this over Özil not knowing the term crossbar challenge. Even by our usual standard, we are reaching some new low depth.

    The Esperanto of football is his first language, and in that his vocabulary knows no bounds.

    As is his Turkish. I reckon the guy thinks in images.

    Don't see what's so "low" about pointing out that his English is poor, he's not exactly smart I'm sure most will know by now. If he was still putting in effort and played just half as well as in 2016 nobody would care how **** his English is

    Wow what? Did you ever hear him talk in his native German? Recognising he's a bit thick doesn't mean you can't still support him like after his whole country of birth turned against him.

    Or do you have to play dumb and glorify your players as heroes to be a real supporter?

    A lot of projection there fella. I don't even like Özil. Just seemed a bit much to impugn the guy's intelligence. He was smart enough to get the Oxford educated Gazidis to hand him 350k a week. We should all be so daft.

    I'm sorry but you can't justify this, there's absolutely no way Özil should be beaten so easily here by Thiago of all players without putting up any sort of fight whatsoever.

    People think that Emery benches Özil at times for no reason but when you see stuff like this it just drives managers up the wall especially when you're trying to coach an aggressive pressing team this sort of stuff is just so disappointing. It happens all the time too, he gives up far too easily. You could sort of understand him being out-muscled by a stronger player or beaten to a ball by a quicker player but this is against Thiago and he should be winning that duel easily but he basically just lets him have the ball and waltz away with it.

    has it occured to you that he might use poor English to cut short interviews he doesn't really want? he seems fluent enough in the videos I've seen when he's been interacting with teamates

    Anyone else betting on Özil to have double figures both in goals and assists this season?

    Not 'betting' per se, but he owes us a good season after last year.

    Have I really created a storm just for pointing out that a guy who's lived in London for six years and earns millions upon millions to do so still speaks **** English? :lol:

    His English isn't terrible. He does the majority of his interviews in the language and I have no trouble understanding him.

    You think because Özils agent got him a well remunerated contract it means Özil is smart or that Gazidis' Oxford education somehow means anything at all in this context. Congratulations compared to the garbage you wrote Özil definitely looks smarter than he did before.
