Mesut Özil (11)


#1264

Ozil, great a player as he may well be, is far too fucking boring for me to have any interest in reading a book about him.


#1265

I always feel as if a). Players should probably wait until they retire until they publish a book about their career and b). they’re only ever readable if the player is remotely interesting off the pitch.

Cruyff’s autobiography is a fantastic read because he had a long and successful career (Both on and off the pitch), and because he was one of the most entertaining footballer’s of all time.

Plus he did this


#1267

Could be a good read. But autobiographies for 20 somethings? nah im good.


#1268

Hopefully i can find an italian copy of his book :wink:


#1269

You may not find him interesting but ask him what day 23rd February 2076 falls on and I guarantee you he’s got you covered.

Perfect summarisation of Mesut. the king of the assist.


#1271

Christ thats fucking pretentious stuff.


#1272

Scenes. Wengers had a meltdown


#1273

Yep we have a diabolical record in the big away games so benching our only 2 world class players should be the cure :joy:


#1274

To be totally fair and not condoning their abscence yesterday both have been guilty of going missing in big games over the last few seasons.


#1275

Lol this just gets better :joy: fuck your Coronation Street’s and EastEnders. Arsenal FC is the biggest soap opera going


#1276

All of them are gone. I mean Wenger, Mesut and Alexis.


#1277

That’s very optimistic. If we get top 4 Wenger is staying for sure. If we don’t there’s a slight chance the board will force him out but even then I kinda doubt it.


#1278

There is even a chance he might be tempted to stay to get us back in the top four.


#1279

Seeing/reading his recent comments I don’t think that’s a chance but rather a certainty. It’s clear he wants to stay and has a strong enough delusion to think he is the best man for the best job. The only question is if the board will force him out.


#1280

As i said yesterday, i am starting to think he suffers from some mental disease. He can’t be that stupid to think he is still the right man for the job.


#1281

Tbh I think most managers no matter how much they struggle belive they have the answer.


#1282

Not to win the title but to restore us back to normality in the top four.

Sounds about right.


#1283

lol, no, Luca. And of course he can. It doesn’t take a mental illness for the most successful manager in the history of a club to convince himself he’s the best man for the job. It’s delusion but the only one who looks to have a mental illness when you start saying shit like that is yourself.
