£17.5 million a season for a good corner or well-placed free kick every once in a while.

At this point I'd happily see him replaced with another top star.

Ozil's running on fumes these days unfortunately, his best days are far behind him, I'll support him anytime he's picked but when's the last time he's put on one of his old magic shows?

Been over a year.

Against Liverpool in the cup but still, once a year isn’t enough.

Awful second half today - along with the rest of the team.
I thought we got our Arsenal back - but we got Emery

Wasn't great today but I'm getting exasperated watching him make decent runs off the ball only to not get the ball.

Guendouzi can be extremely one dimensional at times and needs to release the ball a bit quicker.

Why is he running away from the ball? He should be going and getting it, he's a play-maker he couldn't score in a brothel, what's the point of these 'decent runs' when he has Lacan and Auba for that? ... to me he's hiding, just 38 touches when Xhaka and Guedouzi were both >65 ... not good enough.

That's the problem though, he's a deep CM more for tackling ball winning, he shouldn't be the last man on the ball as often as he is, Willock or Ozil should.

I noticed this issue weeks ago.

He was playing predominantly lw or rw yesterday so that's exactly what he should be doing. Making runs and linking the play I can't fathom how other people can't see it.

And it's not hiding if you've ever played football in that position you will know what I mean. Often in football players make decent runs and it relies on the player on the ball to play it quick to capitalise on space the opposition leaves. Unfortunately we have a whole squad of low footballing iq players and Ozil is not in that category.

Look Ozil didn't have a great game yesterday but when our midfield are so slow at progressing the ball teams can get reorganised and condense the space.

*** Probably why our midfield has never recovered from the hole Santi left behind. He was our cheat player and could do everything both footed, could dribble, pass, tackle and above all he was a smart footballer. God I miss him!

Nothing I didn't expect, kept the ball ticking, was unable to play any incisive passes. We looked a much bigger threat overall than under that limp dick Emery.

He did get an assist. Thats was all Lacazette, none of his corners really did much.

He needs to be thrown out the club January 1st, no questions asked.

The fact all the chances we made where Luiz and Xhaka hoofing the ball forward or passing it to Pepe and hoping shows how useless and ineffective a player he is. Players don't even trust him. he just passes it as soon as he gets it, even to the referee!

Just f**k off Ozil!
