I can only be so blind to his abject performances the last several months. I sound like a fool when a month ago I would get in debates with friends saying I'd take Ozil over De Bruyne. Knowing the quality he has, and the quality he has shown on the pitch in bits and pieces, why isn't it more consistent?
He seems like a happy guy, always his photos he's happy, in training he's smiling and enjoying his teammates, why on match day does it look like he'd rather be laying in a pool? Be happy and smile while on the pitch, show some emotion.
I was adamant prior to the season on extending Ozil, but this season he's just been so average. The argument is he needs a world class striker to maximize his strengths of finding those pin-point passes, but giving a fuck while he plays would be a small plus.
