i'll be honest

i've struggled to maintain my enthusiasm over arsenal without ozil playing. Who else is delighted that we have our talisman back?

I'm glad that Ozil is back but my enthusiasm hasn't waned due to his absence; that would be down to Wenger and the fact this is our worst ever start after 20 games since he took over...But then, I think of Sanchez, he always gets me through the tough times...

But yeah I'm happy Ozil is back, can't wait to see him link with Sanchez,Walcott etc.

Me!

He is class and although he has his critics he is one of the few players we have who can walk into most of the elite teams in football.

What I am excited is, Sanchez, Theo, Ramsey, giroud and mesut by some miracle are all fit, because on paper thats are best front 5, hopefully we can see it in action for a while

Yep, I am.

Just hope Wenger doesn't play him on the left.

---------- Giroud
Sanchez - Ozil - Walcott

He does not deserve to start straight way ahead of Cazorla. This is our best option with everyone fit.

this season at time's he has been poor but i really dont think it helps when most of the time when he has the ball people are showing to feet and there is no movement.

It's actually quite worrying how poor our movement is when ramsey theo, alexis and ozil aren't in the team. If ozil is playing with a trio of guys like giroud santi,ox, wilshere you might as well just play someone like walters in the team because each and every single one of them will be showing for unambitious balls to feet that any player would play.

Don't care what we play when Ozil isn't around, but when he's there - play the 4-2-3-1.

Giroud
Sanchez - Ozil - Walcott
Cazorla - Coquelin*


* If Flamini isn't available.

The formation is fine. 4-1-4-1 or 4-3-3. But when you play Cazorla or Ozil on the wings, it ends up narrowing our play and we suffer.

He'll probably be on the bench tomorrow.

I bet his first start since returning from injury is in the first game after the transfer window shuts.
Seaman/Lehmann
Dixon/Lauren--Adams/Campbell--Bould/Toure--Winterburn/Cole
Pires/Alexis--Vieira/Fabregas--Gilberto/Petit--Overmars/Ljungberg
Bergkamp/Ozil--Henry/Wright

Subs Cech, Keown, Parlour, Cazorla, Van Persie

I'd rather he started on the bench anyway. No need to rush him given Santi's form.
