Everything on Mesut Ozil vs Arsenal Legends

Published

on

It’s no secret Arsenal have had a terrible transfer window and they’ve been struggling since the start of this season and also having troubles in making their star players renew their contract.

Arsenal manager and players have been a victim of criticism of several pundits and several legends.

But the one player who has been targeted the most is Mesut Ozil.

Mesut Ozil in his recent instagram post himself told that pundits have openly criticized him for being ‘too expensive, too greedy, bad body language and lacking fight’.

It’s been 4 years since his arrival at the North London club and no player has received as much criticism as the German has received.

Here’s what the German star had to say:

Mesut Ozil said:

Personally I’ve had to accept a lot of criticism during my time in London. “Too expensive, too greedy, bad body language, and lacking fight’. This is what people have said about me,” he wrote on Facebook.

Some of these comments are made by those who do not know me, some are made by former players, both successful and unsuccessful during their time here at the club.

Although criticism is something that all football players have to deal with, I nevertheless expected legends to behave like legends: my advice to these former Gunners: stop talking and start supporting!

Arsenal legend Ian Wright said if he really wants to shut the critics up he should commit his future to the club by signing a new contract. He said:

“Sign a contract, if you feel that strongly about people criticising the team — because you’re somebody who is integral to Arsenal’s success.

“You’re not signing a deal and you’re probably going to continue to hide behind the fact Sanchez is the one that everybody’s going to say, ‘Is he going to go?’.

“A player that is not actually performing on the pitch is coming out, calling people out — and he’s not signing a contract.

“It’s laughable. When they start playing, we’ll stop criticising. Ozil has been talking a lot — but what exactly is he doing? Sign a new contract and show how much you care about Arsenal.”

Another Arsenal legend Martin Keown slammed Ozil after the clash with Stoke saying:

“One of the main problems for Arsenal at Stoke last week was that Mesut Ozil did not want to close down with the other forwards,

It is very easy for Ozil to just try to be creative. If you are never pressing, you do not have to rebalance yourself when you get in possession.

Sanchez does both sides of the game very well. Arsenal need that in their team — and Sanchez will be urging Ozil to press with him.

Alexandre Lacazette and Sanchez will run off the ball for Ozil when he has the ball and they need him to do the same for them.

While we do feel the need for improvement in Arsenal’s squad but is the criticism of the Arsenal legends of Mesut Ozil just?  Do you think their and other pundit’s opinion of Mesut Ozil is fair?

We hope we turn around the season in the following days after the international break and Mesut Ozil proves these pundits wrong.

YA GUNNERS YA! ')}

Match Preview: Arsenal hope to bounce back against Brighton after Palace

Arsenal will be hosting Brighton at home this Saturday as they look to get back on track after Monday’s loss. Brighton themselves are desperately in search of a win, after consecutive losses and their last result being a draw.

The Gunners had to face a setback against the Eagles and had to see Spurs climb above them in tables over the weekend. Still, Arteta’s men hold a game in hand over Conte’s team and are tied on points.

Arsenal had no bite in attack or defense against Crystal Palace

After a couple of key injuries to Partey and Tierney, it’ll be a test for Arteta to find solutions. The coach, however, is full of optimism.

“We have to show tomorrow the energy, the commitment and the passion that we want to play the game tomorrow in front of our fans,” he said via Arsenal.

Team News

Kieran Tierney will be out for this game and his injury might keep him out for the rest of the season. Arteta confirmed the left-back had surgery but didn’t confirm any timeline for his return.

“He just had surgery yesterday, so it’s very early to understand how everything is going to develop, he’s going to be out for the period that we estimate and in which condition he will be after that period I think it’s too soon to say something else.”

Another player that will miss the game is Thomas Partey, who is struggling with a thigh injury. “It’s a little bit ambiguous but he has a significant injury. We will have to keep assessing him but he will be out for some weeks,” he said.

Further elaborating, “It’s an area he had a previous injury and he felt it straight away and he’s not fit.”

Possible Arsenal Starting XI

Arsenal: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Nuno; Lokonga, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Lacazette

Result Prediction

Arsenal 2 – 1 Brighton

We fully expect Arteta’s men to get back to winning ways after that setback on Monday night. Brighton, while they shouldn’t be taken lightly, are winless in their last seven games.
