Wondering people's opinions of the Ozil talk. I've never rated him especially highly, so it shoiuld be no suprise that I wouldn't want him. I just don't think he's better than the options we already have and he's certainyl not better than the options we can buy from elsewhere. He's a defensive liability and doesn't have that pace anymore. For me, let him go elsewhere and keep our focus on better and younger targets. what's everyone else think?

He is a player Jose likes a player that fits in very well to his system .
I wouldn't be surprised at all if we signed him.

You haven't read down the posts have you.

He seems to split opinions KG. Personally I think when on form he’s one of the best 10s in the world. A few seasons back he got 20 odd assists and was almost unplayable. I understand the objections to signing him due to his weak mentality and his soft underbelly which makes it all the more surprising we are linked with him. But he was unplayable at times under Jose at real and if he can get him back to that level it will take our team to the next level. I am of the thinking that Ozil has become stale and disinterested at arsenal and needs a new challenge and a kick up the backside to get that fire in his belly back.

I personally would be very happy to see him here and think he would flourish with the formidable platform of matic, pogba and our defence behind him. Couple that with the runs by lukaku, miki, rashford and martial then I think he would be an astute signing. People have mentioned that miki and mata are better are 10 but for me miki goes missing too much. I love the guy and I think he is supremely talented but when he is a passenger then it’s time to rest him and take him out the team. Having Ozil yo rotate will give us the sort of depth city have.

On to mata, again I hope he stays but for me he’s an inverted right winger and he does quite well out there. If Jose wanted him as a ten he would have played him there and he hasn’t. Ozil will know he will have to graft under Jose and he will graft because he knows if he does not then he will warm the bench. Wenger has lost that fear factor and Ozil knows Wenger won’t pull him up on the grafting side of the game. I do think Ozil does get scapegoated in the media due to his lackadaisical berbatov-esque style of play. I think I read somewhere he ran more than Sanchez last year (don’t quote me) .

So to sum up yes I really hope we do sign him if there is anyone to get Ozil to the level we saw a few years ago then it is Jose. A midfield three of matic pogba Ozil with miki able to come in is a mouth watering prospect. And I am sure Ozil will be chomping at the bit to prove the media wrong and also at the possibility of playing in front of a solid midfield and defence.

He mostly played from the right say madrid can also play from the left so very effective in all 3 positions behind the striker. For the sort of fee being mentioned i think its a no brainer.
We have good numbers and quality in those areas in miki mata jessie rash martial really fighting it out for 3 positions. So if he comes in one of those will have to go and i would suggest that martial or miki are the ones would be most likely to leave next summer.

Ken your forgetting ibra .
I think he will go next summer .
Talk is lingard could be on the move as well.

20 Oct 2017 19:37:59
I left lukaku and ibra out as they are a different position i see them purely as strikers.
Yeah jessie is going to have to make a choice. He can play for his club and be around the fringes of the england squad start 20 games probably make 35 appearances a season and be atonund top players earn top money and play against big players in the best stadiums and be a sqiad player like neville o shea or the likes or play 35 games for a mid tier prem club prob earn the same money.
I don't think he will be forced out it will be his choice.

I don't think anyone will be forced out.

I like Oezil and due to our lack of midfielders I certainly see him coming to United. We may cut a deal with Arsenal too as they will want some money for him. I think he'd be a good addition and he can play in a few positions. Have to say Mikhitaryan's position would be under threat. His through-balls would be great for Lukaku and Ibra.

Lingard I can see moving on eventually. But he's a useful squad player. I think he's not clinical enough to make him a firm choice each week.

Ozil has recently bought a house in Ldn so a bit puzzled why would he really want to leave Arsenal. That said he can probably get a higher salary with use due to his cheap transfer fees. No qualms paying him higher if he saves us transfer fees. Whilst I do have a little thrown about him joining us based on his lack of defense capability however he is definitely a good addition in our midfield or even wings. He adds a different dimension to our attack.

We do not then need to sell others if we are planning for a team to take on all fronts in terms of silverwares this and/ or next season. I have every confidence that Jose will know how to motivate Ozil jujutsu like he does Martial, Mikki and currently Lindelof. Unfortunately Shaw is another matter as it need individual passion and hunger which he has not.

So end of story is yes Ozil is good addition IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT 😂😂.
