And he's not good enough when we have no creative players in the squad?

What the f**k?


Exactly.

Our performances this year have not only shamed Arteta for his decision on Ozil, but also taken the legs out from under the Ozil haters that spread complete nonsense on this thread.
How lol

Last year we were easily equally as shit as we are now.

Arteta should have never gotten involved in negotiating with the players to take a salary cut on behalf of the board. His relationship with Ozil has gone downhill from there.

We lack creativity, we all agree. I've been saying for coming on 18 months now we need a new attacking mid. Ozil is finished and Arteta's deficiencies at getting anything out of the little creativity we have with Ceballos and Willian is being lapped up by Ozil's marketing team.

Very Convenient we seem to forget Ozil played 10 games at AM under Arteta. Grand total of 1 goal, 1 assist and we still struggled to score goals and create anyway.


You fundamentally misunderstand the game of you think creativity = goals + assists.
No player in our squad has even got close to being as good as Ozil up to the end of 2018 and in the last 2 years Ozil was still one of the most creative players in our team.
1st in many areas.


It does in the final 3rd. We don't pay someone 350k a week for expected assists or some other flimsy stat bollocks. We pay him not just to make nice passes but to be effective at the end of them and achieve numbers which leads to results and Arsenal succeeding.

He needs to score minimum 5 goal and try to make double figures if possible.

We expect him to hit a minimum of 10 assists to justify his price tag, considering he's not play DLP, he's an attacking mid, a player playing that high up the pitch needs to directly making goals happen, if he's not he's no use to us.

He did this from 2015 to 2017 but since then he's shit. Plain shit, a steaming pile of horse manure.


Incorrect.
Especially in the final third, creativity is about far more than assists and goals.
slide rule passes to a wide player who squares it for a goal, clever dummies to fool defenders and set other players free, accurate long passes wide to switch play and create opening for crosses, one twos with midfield partners that creates space for pass into a striker, corners that create danger in the penalty area and lead to a goal (not directly form the corner), accurate free kicks nodded down for a striker to score.. I could go on, but creativity is not just the final pass or the goal.
Ozil's dropped off in the last 2 years in terms of the final pass that led to a goal, but his drop off in terms of involvement in forward play was far less severe. In fact, he was 5th in the entire squad last year in terms of involvement (significant involvement not just a sideways pass) in goals per 90 minutes.

It is fair to say that Ozil in the last 2 years was far less successful at getting into advanced positions to generate assists, but he was still a creative force in the team - in fact, was praised for MotM performances under Arteta.

Last year - multiple examples


You'd have to be a complete loon to watch Ozil's performances last year and not realise he could help us in our current situation.
Jay. A playmaker on 350k a week should be able to do all of that AND produce. Why you keep making escuses for this guy is a joke. He must do both, the small things to create space deep and the major things to produce goals and assists in the final 3rd.

You cannot have a guy who does a few nice flicks every now and again playing AM who doesn't directly make goals happen enough.

You seem to say these things as if i don't see them. I monitored Ozil with much scrutiny last season and he was horse manure. Total garbage. Even that youtube video makes him look even worse. Little fanboy cutting the video each time the pass or flick didn't even come off with the usual orgy of effects.

Nobody cared to mention much about Ozil's non assist contributions when he was producing numbers from 2015-2017 for us because all the nice interplay from him was resulting in numbers. Showing his quality and effectiveness.

Like i said. He like United's all time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney are Championship level players now. All players have their boom bust cycle and Ozil is past his boom and has big issues with his ego accepting the truth of his bust.

We need a new attacking mid. He needs to leave. We must move on.

You clearly don't see the real game unfolding - only what you want to see.
To characterise some of the creative play as 'a few nice tricks' demonstrates that you either don't understand the game or have abandoned reason for your hatred of a player.
For example : a slide rule pass or a perfectly weighted pass past the FB for a wide player to square it for an easy goal is not a 'trick'. It's also not an assist. It is just brilliant creative play.

Don't change the goalposts here - no one has said Ozil is worth 350k a week and no one has said he shouldn't also have contributed more assists and goals in the last 2 years.

What I am telling you - correctly - is that even from 2018-2020 Ozil was one our best creative players and only a fool would suggest he is not worth a place in the current squad - either used as a starter or when we need more creativity in midfield (which happens to be every game right now).

The way we are playing now proves conclusively that Arteta made a huge f*** up.
No matter how bad it gets, at least we don't have to put up with Wenger anymore

We don't create any chances, we only look dangerous on penalties lol.

Ozil can't be left out of the entire squad, it makes zero sense.

All the more reason why I don't want him back in the team. If he's purposely trolling to inflame tensions, he's going out of his way to hurt the club. He can f**k off.

How so.
He's letting people know he is ready to play.
Arsenal's management and Arteta have created this mess. No one else.
They tried to publicly humiliate Ozil and its backfired.

Spot on. I don't see why this needs to be pointed out to people. Sometimes you can see things in black and white and it works but sometimes it doesn't, sometimes you need grayscale or even colour.
