‘Bring on the Big Guns – Arsenal are ready’ roars star

I for one am glad that the next few fixtures coming up for Arsenal in the Premier League are against teams that are struggling and so they should, theoretically, be easier to beat. It is not as if the Gunners are struggling, far from it in fact as we are the division´s form side with five wins and a draw from the last six games, but we are a little bit thinly stretched due to a raft of injury problems and the concerns over the fitness of Alexis Sanchez.

That is why I think we are lucky to have West Brom, Norwich, Sunderland and Aston Villa up next but one Arsenal star sounds like he does not give a monkey’s chuff who the Gunners play because Mesut Ozil feels that he and his team mates have now done enough to get rid of that tag of being big game bottlers once and for all.

Our German international star Mesut Ozil has been one of the top performers this season, in the world not just in England, so you can see why he would be full of confidence and happy about the way he is able to influence and control games much more these days.

Ozil told Arsenal Player, “I think as a team you can see that we’ve become more mature. We’ve learnt from our mistakes and you can see on the pitch that we’re more steady.

“We’ve had some setbacks this season but we’ve learnt from them and it shows on the pitch that my team-mates are looking for me even more and I’m able to control the game better.”

But the German understands that he is just one facet of a very strong team that is now working brilliantly together and that is why he feels that Arsenal are ready to face any opponent without fear and with the tools to beat them.

He went on, “You can see that we function well as a team. It doesn’t matter who plays from the start, we’re always there. You need a big squad if you are to be successful and that’s why things are working well.

“When you look at the past seasons, we’ve always been a technically-strong team but when we played against big teams, we dropped points. In the second half of last season and in this year so far, we’ve proved ourselves against the biggest teams.

“You learn from your mistakes and we can measure ourselves with the best. That distinguishes us as a team.”

Well he will soon have a great opportunity to back these words up on the pitch, when main EPL rivals Man City come to town just before christmas. Will Ozil still be happy after that game or will he have to think again?

    I’m quite impressed with ozil this season.and I believe he’ll come good on the promise of more goal from him.if you ask me I’d say goal scoring is what’s stopping him from bagging a top three spot on the world’s bet footballers’ nomination.

      Apparently Ozil has been practising on his shooting, after normal training sessions, so hopefully he will be showing off his new ability against WBA.

      It is strange how someone can put the ball where ever they want but struggle to do so from the penalty spot! ?

    Lets start with 3 priceless points at west bromwich albion! Coyg!

    Listen Baby Please

    Ozil is the best central attacking midfielder in the PL. Better than Mata, Fabregas, Silva, Ericksen

    The only thing upsetting is that other players are not finishing off a lot of his passes (even though he is assist leader). Giroud needs to up his game against West Bromwich and probably Zagreb too.

    Just hope he spends in January because that is the only chance of the epl champion

    I was one of the idiots who doubted Ozils worth and thought him nothing like a forty mil player but now would say he’s well worth 50 60 maybe even more. The lad oozes quality and ya got to love his impish personality ..Ya!! Gunners Ya!!

    1. Sam, need a striker says:

      NO 30m at best

      1. Koss the Boss says:

        Yea 30m on top of the 42m is his worth! Still 27 ffs.

  6. Koss the Boss says:

    Ozil is a football genius. Nobody can say any different! Hes in a league of his own, as wenger said “If you love football, you love Mesut Ozil” think Philip Lahm said the same as being the best creative player in the german team!

  7. Bill William says:

    Ozil is a very inteligent player who does not want physical battles. I wonder how he makes those killer passes thru a traffic of players. His movements are dangerous to opponents!
