Not going to lie that last minute city winner stung badly. They are getting the rub of the green and i guess this is how other teams felt when we nicked it in Fergie time over the years. I agree with rave down below the HAVE to beat city when they come to OT. I think judging by jose’s Recent selections he knows we have to attack and win every game now with the way city are flying. I say buckle ourselves in guys because there is still a lot to play for and Jose will really let the shackles off like he has never normally done before.

They have scored late on in there last 3 games. All which have been very difficult for city to break down the opposition.

Teams are slowly working out how to get to city and nulify there attacks.

If Southampton were better in the final 3rd last night they would have won.

Yes they may have had 20 plus shots late night but Southampton had the clear cut chances.

It's only a matter of time before they come unstuck and the luck runs out.

I would agree with that Bolger Southampton should have had a few from corners. Seems that is a weakness for city and if we could get a good delivery in from corners that is an area we can exploit.

Somewhere where I feel we lack and which has been done to death is that creative game changer. That seems to be getting city these last few goals and I do sometimes worry we could get unstuck here. Ozil was class last night and I know it was Huddersfield but we should move heaven and earth for him. On his day is can be unplayable and I think we will see his work rate under Jose improve. I know a lot on here would prefer mata but I think Ozil is different class to any of the 10s we have.

Was Mata better at Chelsea and Miki at Dortmund than ozil has been at arsenal.

30 Nov 2017 10:40:31
In my view jred Ozil is better than both those players. He is the playmaker of the German national team and would take our team to a different level. Miki was very good at Dortmund but he was playing on the right and not in the 10 position. I will admit mata was incredible at Chelsea and I am a massive fan and think we should definitely keep hold of him. But he rarely plays 10 albeit when he does he does well. But it’s clear Jose doesn’t really trust him in that position. I know we often look at other players in other teams and wish for them when in reality our players are just as accomplished. But Özil with pogba and matic behind him, feeding martial, lukaku and rashford is a mouth watering prospect. Just my humble opinion 😂.

You really think he has been excellent in the epl over the last 4 year.
Don't get me wrong I think he is a good player but the missing link in a this Jose team?

30 Nov 2017 12:23:41
I think he has been up there on top 3 playmakers the last 4 years yes. I think he is the easy scapegoat for fans because of his lackadaisical and ‘relaxed’ style of play. Much like martial who gets flack from our own fans for not looking interested. When in reality that is just our style of play. Fans love a player that charges around and works hard such as a tevez instead of let’s say a berbatov. I love mata but I think Ozil is better. As for missing link? I didn’t say that but I think he would add something different to our attack. Let’s be honest, we need two new full backs and a right winger more importantly. Add another central midfield and we have a brilliant team. So to answer your question jred - he isn’t the missing link but he would improve us a lot.

30 Nov 2017 12:28:23
I though the same watching Miki at Dortmund and Mata at Chelsea.

30 Nov 2017 12:42:33
Ozil has always been better than Miki and Mata.

30 Nov 2017 12:44:22
I thought Mata was amazing at Chelsea, I had him down as one of the very best players in the league as he was running the show week in week out. Sorry to say he hasn't hit anything like those heights for us apart from a few great moments. Whether it's him, the managers or our style of play since he joined, he's been a 'nice to have' rather than a 'must have'. Respect the guy a lot though.

As for ozil, has serious talent but too much of a luxury player for me, we have enough players that lack oomph and can't grab a hard game by the scruff of the neck.
Need someone with class as well as drive.

For me we are a kdb/ hazard/ coutinho short of being an excellent team for all types of games. Any ideas who fits that bill and could be available?

30 Nov 2017 13:06:11
A kdb/ hazard/ coutinho, pogba?

30 Nov 2017 15:20:54
jred yes Pog is a quality player but a different position/ type to those I mentioned. He's not a number 10 nor is he an all-out attack player, and that's not a criticism.

I'd also like him to do the business and win us games consistently in the real big clashes, like those above do.

30 Nov 2017 15:55:44
But pogba can and should be a match winner.

30 Nov 2017 16:09:44
Pogba can be. But as we've seen recently when he's out we had no one else step up. If we had two such players capable of winning games then one could pick up the slack if the other is missing.

30 Nov 2017 16:21:15
Had a couple step up last night.

30 Nov 2017 16:25:14
for me Ozil is a better 10 than both Miki and Mata but there are better fits for us than him, Dybola or Ferkir or Greizmann would be that missing piece Ferkir for me, he strong aggressive great vision and finishing ability and tracks back, he everywhere like Kante but further forward and the songs sung for him by the crowd could be very interest lol.
