Mesut Özil (10)


#3680

What do those expectations entail exactly?


#3681

PFA player of the year :ozil2:


#3682

This hate on Ozil, because that is what it is at this point, gets extremely tiring.


#3683

Not sure it’s hate.

He is able to and should be doing more, with that said some need to accept the player he is at this point.

He’s not an all conquering #10 in the mould of James, KDB etc.


#3684

What does he need to do more? Because asking for him to do more means him taking the ball, dribble it and put it in the net. He has been the creative hub for his time here already.


#3685

Please dont mention James in the same sentence as KDB.


#3686

Don’t hate on the Colombian Prince mate.


#3687

Dont insult the belgian chocolate king mate


#3688

Seriously? Ozil isn’t going to change his personality or playing style aged 30, which he will be come October.


#3689

Then it is really sad.


#3690

Or your expectations are unreasonable.


#3691

IF you are truly, I mean truly satisfied of what he is playing, then feel free to say I am unreasonable.

I have seen his past, I know his ability, he can do more, a lot more than just showing up against Ludogorets, and contribute more in big/important games.


#3692

Maybe he was too comfy under wenger like 98% of our squad, hopefully a firework will be lit under a lot of our team and we will see what they can actually do with a bit of coaching and an occaisional kick up the arse.


#3693

You expect him to be Messi. Which he is not. Nor has he ever been.


#3694

Not entirely satisfied but I don’t a 30yo to change his game or dribble as often as when he was 23.

And you’re expecting him to shoot more, it’s not going to happen.

Just be happy we have PEA to make runs for him to pass to.


#3695

Ron isn’t saying he wants Ozil to change his game. All I want is for him to do what he does best more often and take control of our attack.

He has the ideal striker now, and if he’s deployed at AM I’m expecting 10+ league assists and goals at the very least. That’s not unreasonable at all considering his talent and experience


#3696

you read my mind


#3697

Yeah, he already does a lot more than just turn up against the likes of Ludogorets. Don’t be fucking ridiculous.

This is why people are defensive over Ozil, because people take a fucking quality goal and performance of his in a game that mattered (but against poor opposition ofc) and use it as a stick to beat him with.


#3698

He has 50 assists in his 5 seasons here whilst having three seasons in which he played less than 30 games. He would have easily averaged 10+ per season. But you want him to add 10+ goals too?


#3699

There’s no point applying averages in this situation, makes alot more sense to look at his stats on a season per season basis.

For Ozil in 18/19 I want to see 10+ assists and goals at the very least for sure. There’s nothing unreasonable there and it’s perfectly fair considering the talent in the squad.
