Arsenal ruined Ozil’s awesome record breaking

Even if Arsenal had come away from the Hawthorns with a point (and yes Santi Cazorla and Joel Campbell I am looking at you) then all the talk among Arsenal fans and the football media today would not have been so much about what went wrong against West Brom and whether this is the start of another crumble for the Gunners.

A point would have taken Arsenal back above Manchester United and although Leicester City would still have kept us off the top of the table, it would not have looked so bad. And in that case the amazing achievement of our German play maker Mesut Ozil would surely have got more coverage in the press.

Just as the Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy was matching the Premier League record of old horse face Ruud van Nistelrooy by scoring in a 10th consecutive league game, Ozil was setting a record of his own by providing the assist for the opening goal by Olivier Giroud.

That makes it seven EPL games in a row where the king of the assist has done what he does best. He was previously tied on six with the former Gunner Cesc Fabregas even though the Spaniard´s was separated by a few years and the distance from the Emirates to Stamford Bridge. Never mind Cesc at least you have a title to defend…oh wait.

Anyway I think that Ozil’s feat deserves more credit and if he carries on like this, with 11 EPL assists to his name already this season, Ozil will surely beat the record of 20 currently held by our very own Thierry Henry in 2002/03. But can he repeat Henry’s achievement of helping Arsenal to become champions of England?

  1. Coquelin out for 3 months apparently.. fk off wenger fr not buying cdm when the whole world told u to do so. This season has gone. No more title talk.

    1. There are enough players who can take the position Coquelin left. For starters, Ramsey can return in the middle. Flamini is alright. Won’t be surprised to see Chambers there too. Was a silly tackle by Coquelin, just as foolish as the one from Arteta. We will pull this one out. I have faith in them.

      1. budd ur underplaying his value to us.

        no point pointing le coqs unique merits, u will see iver these coming months from our results

        this is huge news.

  2. Yes and Cech is still waiting for a cleansheet to equal david James’s premier league record, he better stop fiddling with his Helmet if he wants to keep a cleansheet ??

  3. It’s okay, don’t worry baby please. Wenger is on top of things. He will get Kim Kallstrom in January to replace Coquelin 🙂

    I think he is with Grasshoppers at the moment but Wenger will get him on loan (even if he is injured) to save our season

  4. Well done to Ozil, long may it continue and hopefully his shots will start going in off the post instead of bouncing back out again!

    1. We should give the penalty role to Sanchez and Ramsey instead of Arteta and Cazorla. God we’re missing Ramsey’s goal prowess so bad

  5. I dn’t buy into the notion of carzola missing that penalty cuz he slipped….. He wanted to do a ”panenka”…..

  6. Can someone please buy Arsenal and hire a director to control transfers ? At this point I would’ve made millions for all the predictions I made about Arsenal’s consistency with being inconsistent. I saw the WBA loss coming from a mile away. You know why ? Because Arsenal never take opportunities begging to be taken, this is the 2nd time we had the chance to go top and we blew it. Why ? Because our players don’t have the balls to win, they’re afraid of success because they lack enough players like Sanchez who would put hunger and desire and the will to never give up. Wenger doesn’t bring in more players like him because he knows they have the balls to question the manager’s decision as well. That’s the truth, Wenger favours players like Arteta and Mert because they’re “yes men” and “yes men” will never get you far in the MODERN game. Fast forward from 2011 to now and we find ourselves in the SAME position, no top striker, no top DM, Wilshere gone missing, humiliation in the CL, title challenge on the brink of fading away and currently 4th place.

  7. ramsey once played so well that he outperformed rakitic toure vidal modric
    ozil once played so well that he was better than the combination of iniesta and xavi and was one of the most feared playmakers in the game and was also at the heart of germany football
    sanchez played so well he was likened to suarez and is a chilean legend
    wilshere played so well that he was praised by the entire barcelona team
    cech is dubbed the best keeper in the world by most that even lewandowski was honoured to score against him for once
    the kosmertz patnership was considered one of the best in english football
    coquelin is outperforming the best in europe and has gained plaudits from former legends such as henry silva and pires
    monreal and silva are also statistically the best fullbacks in the league
    even chamberlain has played so well he is considered the future of england
    chambers also played so well he was capped by england and nominated for the golden boy award
    even the giroud ive not mentioned is considered the most lethal strikers a goal after very few touches and fewest minutes on the pitch

    BUT what is it that makes many reject arsenal s title credentials
    and laugh off their chances after all these facts ?
    Has everyone lost faith in arsene??!!

  8. Sorry to say financially struggling right now …looking for a job paying minimum £8m a year with no pressure to perform or achieve over and above expected!

  9. Well done mates fair enough said it realy hard to get an over pay job like that but i believe Wenger will one day blow the f**k him self off on his f***ing face because of his f****ng stubbornness
