OZIL THE AVERAGE by Liberty Leo
Mesut Ozil has been with Arsenal for four years today and for me he been a massive disappointment. I always try to be optimistic with Ozil but far too many times he just leaves me disappointed. I’m always waiting for him to find his best form, but it just doesn’t happen. I see the glimpses of brilliance, he pops up with some blind passes, gives some good crosses..so what.. Sanchez can do that also (remember his pass to Ozil vs Watford last season) Ozil’s good performances are too few and far between…
He still has millions of fans that swear by him but I can’t exactly figure out why… He is so overrated it isn’t funny. Fans of Ozil are quick to say its not his fault – that the players around him (Giroud) don’t make the correct runs etc…We can’t always blame someone else for his lack of consistency, at some point Ozil has to take responsibility and produce like a £42m record-buy player.
Nasri was much better for us than Ozil has ever been… And if Barca ever wanna do a swap deal for even Rafinha I’d gladly accept.. We just keep protecting this player forgetting that he is paid huge sums to do his work, we tend to look at his performances for the German team and that’s simply no excuse, you don’t see Ronaldo and Messi giving excuses about the team around them, a good player is a good player barring his team mates.. I personally feel stats are the downfall of football, they are the reason we keep doubting our eyes defending players like Ozil who keep under-performing week in and out,, a player who’s not wanted by bigger teams.. Its either I’m blind or deluded.. please me what this man can do?
-he cant beat his man
-he cant shoot properly
-he isn’t aggressive on the ball
-he is been pampered by the manager
-he gets burnt out easily..
WTF is he doing at a club that once boasted the best Number10 in the English game (Bergkamp)..
Am I wrong?
