Great news for Arsenal as Ozil continues to hit form!

One of the big talking points at the start of the season for Arsenal fans and football pundits was the form, or lack of it, of the club record signing Mesut Ozil. According to some of his critics, the World Cup winner just did not care and his easy manner on the pitch was just not suited to the English Premier League.

Now as much as that may have been too hasty a verdict and too much of a knee jerk reaction to a few below par games, it is also too son to say that the real Mesut Ozil is back and that the German international is about to set the world on fire. But there are great signs for Arsenal fans.

If it was not for the excellent goal scoring performance of the young Gunner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil would have claimed his second Man of the Match award in a row, at least according to the players stats on With a 92 percent pass completion rate and with most of those in the opposing half, Ozil also had the most successful dribbles and was a threat all day.

Ozil was most effective after the break when Ramsey’s injury meant he moved back into the middle, but even before that he was doing well on the flanks. Following on from a goal and an assist at Aston Villa, does this mean that Wenger was right about us merely needing to have patience with the playmaker after his extended summer in Brazil?

And with Welbeck and Ozil forging an understanding, while Alexis looks like he is well worth the money, could Arsenal be on the verge of goals galore?

    That and Wiltshire’s return to form – he really has improved his game in recent games.

    Its a great credit to Arsenal that now we have lost Ramsey for a few games its not the disaster that would have been (and was) last season-

    With the movement in our midfield, we are moving opposing teams defenders around better, creating more space, allowing those silky passes through to threaten the opposition –

    Think we have a good balance in midfield, and up top – but we all know we are not fast enough at the back – and that can’t be fixed if you play Mert. He needs to be replaced!

      Admin There is some news regarding the reason behind sanchez being dropped.
      Please make article on that with an in depth analysis of his passing success rate and the way he slows down the arsenal attack.

      1. Prince says:

        Ohh that is crap. Alexis has been sensational. The reason wenger dropped him is because wenger is sometimes crazy. COYG!!

        I agree, Sanchez was poor against Spurs he tried to force it too much. He has been good this season but not as good as everyone says. No one in Arsenal has been sensational this season bar Kos. We need a big improvement if we aren’t gonna get f@ked by Chelsea.

    2. Jogon says:

      Who says Wilshere is on form, he aint. This guy just holds on to the ball too long and then bumps into the opposition wall, is that what you call form, i prefer him passing the ball rather than trying to run through the wall. He just makes the team play badly.

      1. brpowers23 says:

        Yes, true, on occasion. But he plays positively and this helps the attack. He will lose the ball because of this, but the alternative is to pass the ball around endlessly or sign Messi who loses it less.

        He is playing better this season, which is great for us so let’s support him.

  2. Greg says:

    Will love to see him show it against chelsea on sunday with some goals, and being a provider! Coyg!

  3. Greg says:

    Im looking forward to alexis sanchez having a big game for us gunners! We need some goals and he is a man who can certainly give us some!

    Play with Flamini and Coquelin at DMF, and let Cazorla, Ozil, Sanchez and Welbeck do what is needed up front. Full backs can support as well one, only one going forward whilst the other is back.

    I think that is a good balance in the team. We have 4 full time attacking players with one extra player joining them in attack from a full back position.

    The problem with this team might be when transitioning from defence to attack, Flamini and Coquelin can’t distribute passes far. So someone in those attacking positions will have to come and pick the ball up sometimes from them.

    Yeah yet “another ” article

    Everton, Spurs, ManC out of the way till January. Chelsea next week.

    Neither luck nor stability has been with us. We need a change in fortune.

    Giroud, who is so powerfully built gets injured by a ball. I mean, no rash tackle.

    Debuchy turns snd just falls down on the ground and is out for 3 months.

    How do we cope with injuries?
