Arsenal need to stick with Ozil by Sam P
I am not going to sit here and tell you that Mesut Ozil has not been a bit disappointing for Arsenal at times, or that his performance against Man City at the Emirates on Saturday was another one of those frustrating days for the fans. But I am here to support him.
A lot of people saeem to want Arsene Wenger to drop the German playmaker but I think that would be a big mistake. Not just because it would damage his confidence, but because Arsenal need him on the pitch. He might look a bit casual or even lazy at times but he always does, even when he is having a good game.
I think that Ozil has still not quite come back from Brazil yet but he is on the way and his stats from Saturday were not too bad, creating a couple of chances and helping us to keep the ball flowing. If you need any examples of why it is worth sticking with a player we know is real quality, then just look at the cases of Ramsey and Wilshere.
If some of us had our way then both of these midfielders would have been sold and replaced by now. It is just a matter of time before Ozil clucks into top gear but that will only happen sooner if he keeps playing. Keep the faith Arsenal fans.
