I draw the line at never-has-beens/dossers.
Tbh, the cynic in me initially thought 'here we go again'. I started wondering if it's old stuff from last season and other shenanigans from his people, but it looks like fresh kosher meat, this time.
That hair makes him look about 60.
I respect that. I also have a no dossers allowed policy.
Double-double season incoming..
That hair better be gone before season starts or I might have to cut ties though.. Can’t rep a Rapinoe lookalike ffs..
Why not? She is elite footballer!
We got Özil..
I just don’t think you understand,
He’s Unai Emery’s man,
He’s better than Zidane,
We got Mesut Özil!
Can't believe we still got Mesut Özil!
Think the best is yet to come from him!
Özil will break Thierry Henry assist record.
Yeah...just kidding. He is all talk the talk.
was about to comment on the hair
I reckon this haircut may have re-invigorated him somehow haha, looks like he's had a very good pre season & we may see a very good season from Mesut. Lets hope he's on the way to a very good season, one of his best for the Gunners.
I love Mesut, I really think it's about time he brings out his best & skill I know he is capable of.
If he stays, which seems highly likely, we must try to get the best out of him. It is a good sign that he seems sharp in pre-season.
I reckon we can get the most out of him in a free role as a playmaker winger (RW) in a 4-3-3. Kind of similar to the Ziyech role at Ajax. What do you think @razörist? Potentially behind two strikers, but I don't like that formation due to the lack of width.
My heart says no. Ziyech is very explosive, aggressive, he can play anywhere in attack other than striker maybe. Mesut on right wing means we really need a true pacy winger on the other side otherwise we'll be dead passing around the box again.
Think that was your head, not your heart. Good post actually.
I don't think he played at his best last year & down in confidence because he played mainly on the wing in that 3 at the back formation with 2 strikers. He's best with the 4231 or 4213 formation I think as a #10 playmaker ployed behind a striker & wingers on his outside. If he is played as a main playmaker this year it will be interesting to see how he will go.
In general I really want to play with just 1 striker, 4 at the back with 2 wingers, then guys like Bellerin & Tierney (if we get him) making overlapping runs aswell. Maybe a 4231 or 433.
If he can find form he's still one of our only true world class players. It's a weird one. I don't think we can afford to lose him given our spending power, but this season really has to be the last chance if he doesn't perform.
Last season was positively weird.
He has had six seasons with us, that should be enough to know this was a failed experiment.
Truth is we're all fed up with Özil but if he's going to be here it's hard not to keep some hope that he can give us something special next season.
His mind set could get better, maybe less injuries too, the tactics could be more in favor of his style and capacity, a good recruit (Winger/CM) could inspire him.. #hope #obama #neverland
