Arsenal simply must sign new contracts with Alexis and Ozil. by KM
Hello fellow Gooners! Finally I saw a proper performance from Arsenal! We summoned the spirits of the way we beat Chelsea, because let’s be honest, our play hasn’t been up to standards lately, and I am only a little worried, because this is West Ham, who got destroyed 3:0 by Southampton.
But this game was so much better from so many players. I have to point out Nacho Monreal, who for me was struggling lately, but he had an awesome game. The Ox looks like finally he’s getting a chance in the squad and I hope he takes it, because it looks like he can fill the hole on the left, which Alexis left by moving to the CF role.
And it’s been a massive move for Sanchez. He simply is our own version of Aguero if not, better. I mean just look at that finish at the end. Alexis is simply world class. I’d feel like an insult if we don’t dip in Stan’s pocket to get the guy on a new contract. He’s been at Barcelona, but here at Arsenal Alexis is the main man. He looks for the ball, he plays with desire, he cares, he chases back. I can’t heap enough praise, because I simply love Alexis. We haven’t had such a player in ages.
Despite the fact Alexis overshadowed everyone, Ozil is also standing out. He has like 8 goals this season? Not too bad. If he gets 15-20 over the entire season that’s excellent! His understanding with Alexis is just brilliant, and you can see the bromance going on there. Those are the two best players in our squad and we are so heavily reliant on them.
The real question is can we match their ambitions and deliver a big trophy. The league or the champions league? This will be the main thrive in their decision to stay or go I think. And whether we can do it will depend so much on the performance of the other players in the side. Alexis and Ozil will have a dip in their form and questions are will the other players please stand up?
Theo had like 4-5 excellent games, where he really looked the real deal and since Basel he’s gone missing again. The Ox now has a few decent games, but will this stay through the tough months? We have a good squad. We have probably the biggest squad in terms of players capable of outdoing most teams in the premier league. We have a solid bench, something I’ve been crying out for years.
I like the fact Ramsey is benched. He just simply does not deliver enough and he has to work for his spot. I think that if Iwobi is fit, Theo is next to lose his place unless he picks it up. We rotate Elneny, Xhaka and Coquelin, because we can and if you don’t perform well, you’re not starting, exactly like it should be at a top club.
December sees some tough fixtures coming up. Everton away is a game we’ve not won in ages, City played some good 60 minutes against Chelsea before their suicidal end and Stoke is always a fight, but there can be no Excuses. Arsene simply must deliver!
