Mesut Özil (10)


#2074

8-10 pairs seems a lot. :thinking:


#2075

Lol does it?! I genuinely have more than ten pairs if shoes/trainers, I can’t count them off the top of my head lol


#2076

Including football boots I have about 12-14 pairs. Le footwear can make or break a look :welbeck:


#2077

Indeed, 8-10 is simply not enough for a cosmopolitan man like yourself, Robbo.


#2078

So Ozil out for Sunday, strange he picked up another injury by only playing 7 minutes vs WBA on Monday.


#2079

Just said ‘unavailable’ no?


#2080

#2081

We’re already getting a taste of Ozil-less life at Arsenal.

I already said it, but I do so hope they act proactively replacing Ozil/Sanchez(/Wilshere?).


#2082

He is leaving in any case, tbh.


#2083

Wenger is very much reactive when it comes to transfers.
I do think he will replace Ozil but it will be with an inferior version and the same with Sanchez.

I hope this isn’t going to become a regular occurrence, with Ozil missing matches.
Otherwise we might as well have just sold him rather than letting him go on a free.


#2084

said on here this summer, both Ozil and Sanchez should have been sold

Why?

Well, they haven’t turned us into winners, have they? so, why are we so stuck on keeping them, especially Ozil.

Coulda got £100 million for them, plus the £40 million for Oxlade

that would have funded two world class replacements, or we’d have needed to add another £30 million

Now we have two players, neither who want to be here and both will leave on a free

MASSIVE fuck up, again, by Wenger

but of course, he knows best, right?


#2085

Keeping our best players isnt a massive fuck up, especially when we need champions league football to entice people like Lemar to join.

Selling our two best players the year of our lowest league finish would have been a massive fuck up, and that really is as simple as it gets.


#2086

bullshit

that only applies if

  1. they are gonna sign new contracts (they aren’t)
  2. they are really gonna bust a gut to make us winners (Ozil certainly isn’t)
  3. they aren’t gonna walk out on a free (they are)

your position makes no logical sense whatsoever. What you think they are irreplaceable?

Bollocks, we could and should, in my opinion, have sold both and had a really good clear out bringing in fresh players in many positions including theirs

Now what are we faced with? Ozil hardly gonna play, we’ll more than likely not finish top 4 and both players will leave for fuck all costing the club £80 to £100 million in funds


#2087

Not sure I used the word irreplaceable. Plus it makes perfect sense to not sell your best players when in crisis.


#2088

But we’re not keeping our best players.
They are leaving at the end of the season.
Players like Lemar are certainly not going to be attracted to a club where all their best players leave.


#2089

luckily for us there are more than 2 world class players in existence.

We need Alexis and Ozil to get CL football, rebuild once we are attractive, not when we arent.


#2090

Inter Milan can stay in their lane regarding Ozil, they aren’t relevant


#2091

I don’t think it’s a mistake to keep them. But doing nothing else regarding the future for those positions that is the mistake in my opinion.


#2092

Out of what arsehole were we gonna pull two world class replacements from? Money would have just stayed in the bank or half spunked on third rate versions of those two…


#2093

we’ll have lemar/griezmann and goretzka next season…so no worries!
