I'm starting to feel bad for Ozil. Every touch he has seems to be analyzed by every one. Actually, only the bad touches. The media is all over him now especially after the City game. Wasn't Wilshire the scapegoat before his performance last weekend? Who's next when Ozils form returns? Ramsey again? Welbeck? There has been much worse performances in our team, Arteta, Flamini, Monreal and even Ramsey haven't been playing well. I guess it has a lot to do with the price tag, but that's really not his fault.

We lost the ball 172 times yesterday, the stats are frightening.
I love how all the experts and keyboard warriors talk about Ozil being played out of position and seem to know more than Wenger and that he is ruining his career.(LOL)
I am no expert , but after looking closely the way he plays for Germany and us it makes sense.
Our best right "winger" is Theo. After that ?? Its between Ozil/Ox.Ox is just beginning to get his fitness back so we are simply left with our best option at RW as Ozil
Why is Wenger not playing Ozil in no 10 position?I feel Ramsey/Cazorla can contribute as much as Ozil can and our games requires players to keep interchanging positions.Ozil against Citeh and Dortmund had to cut in from right to center to temporarily acquire the no 10 role.
The unfortunate part is we don't have many players making that forward runs as we used to.Welbeck will need time to settle and develop the chemistry between himself ,santi ,Ramsey and Ozil.
and I think that's why Wenger is sticking to the same set of players to develop chemistry.
It would be interesting to see when Theo comes back, where would Ozil play ? Looking at the way (bad) Ramsey/Cazorla are playing , I think Ozil will take the no 10 role.



Ozil is a fantastic player, he played out wide for Germany the entire world cup, he played good enough to warrant Lowe starting him in for every single game in that tournament.

He is a naturally slow player, he likes to play at his own pace, he's a lovely player to watch when in full flow but i think the fans and pressure are starting to get to him oddly enough, he seems like a player who has no confidence and the fact that he doesn't chase the ball (like a Sanchez or Welbeck) further adds to the frustration of fans.

If you've watch Ozil for Germany, RM and Arsenal early on, hes world class, but atm he's short of any confidence. Cazorla needs to play tho.
+2
He's at an age where these lame excuse no longer hold up!

Having said that though, he was not the worst player on the pitch. He had a teenager making his debut behind him and Ramsey was in no man's land the entire game to support him. And he picked out Sanchez brilliantly for that offside goal.
+3
Ozil playing for arsenal is not the same man playing for Germany..in Germany he need to fight for his place every match..moreover Germany have khedira, lahm, Hummel's, boateng, & co to do those defensive work..ozil is fantastic, in that central role..he is not a combative player like Sanchez..its not a gift for a rb/lb to have oz on the wing
+1
So thats 2 wins 4 draws and 1 loss, on a 3 match winless streak in the PL and next we visit the rejuvenated Aston Villa, damn.

In for a tough match, if Wenger selects the same team again I'm gonna go crazy. Cazorla in Wilshere's place and the Ox in Ozil's place with Rosa displacing Ramsey. Poldi also has to be in for Sanchez as he's played a lot of football and needs/deserves a rest.

Need hungrier and fitter players to inject pace into our play which has been lacking massively with the current starting 11.
+1
definitely need to have a re-arrange of the first XI for Villa. Would like to see Podolski get a run of games, particularly now that Gibbs s back - the pair of them work quite well together.

Chambers-Merts-Kosc-Gibbs
Flamini-Wilshere
Ox-Cazorla-Podolski
Welbeck

+1
Why is Wenger not starting Rosicky ? FFS he was perfect for yesterday's game.
Wenger is losing it! Wenger OUT!
+2
Always love to see kloop's team play....my only wish is for him to take over at arsenal in 2-3 years time......take a look at his first 11 today...not many superstars but still plays like a boss.....No shame is that defeat as currently kloops philosophy easily outweighs our style of play.....
+3
guess we will all be fighting for him in 3 years time eh?
Lol
Moyes in?
watching arsene post match interview yesterday I believe Moyes is already in there somewhere.
f**king disease :D
+1
Can a mod delete my account please?, ill give you my reason to whichever mod who replies on their wall, thanks
after yesterday showing you decide to join LVG and his philosophy? or because that illumination has made you understood RVP now and you want to follow him?

ps. I will be watching out for you Xdevil4everX :P

I replied on your wall mate. I'd really rather not remove one of the most positive gooners here but I'll respect your wishes if you confirm that's what you want to do :(
+2
Why are you going brother, Xgooner ?
Guessing he's sick of the negativity.
don't go Xgooner m8, you post hilarious content, would be a big miss here, take a small break and return when your ready.
Xgooner if you really wanna quit because of negativity...you might as well exit from this planet.

come-on man...Just enjoy what you like and ignore what you don't simple!! i hope you change your decision.
+1
owh come on mate. just leave this site for a few weeks but you dont have to delete your account. yes most of the old folks in our forum are getting way too tired to handle all those negativity. just take a small break, like most of us did and come back whenever you are ready. pretty sure zilch, cloudst and i did the same thing quite a while ago.

p/s: it means a lot for us, the old footytubers to see you stay in here mate.
I think what we need to do is find a better balance of the 4-1-4-1 and the 4-2-3-1. Maybe start with the 4-1-4-1 then move to a 4-2-3-1 when we're leading and don't need to press so high.. And Wenger should rotate the squad more. Last night i felt we should have started with chamberlain and cazorla to keep up with the energy levels. pretty much the same team that just had a tough battle with the champions and is probably jet lagged isn't the best move. 4 changes needed to be made
Flamini wasn't the one they should have rested
From here on out i think Campbell needs more action. with all the running Welbeck does he doesn't have the stamina to last as long as Wenger would like
yeah I also think we should have rotated the midfield better. The guys put in a great shift against City on Saturday. I would have expected Cazorla and Chamberlain to start since they didn't feature at the weekend.

The whole team looked lethargic last night.
You don't get jetlag from going to Germany

I agree that Cazorla should have started and I would like to see Campbell get more playing time now
+1
yeaaaaah!! the WOB is back, baby! We lost one game, which must surely be indicative of how the rest of the season will play out. Wooooooo!!

God I wish I hadn't read down the last 2 pages. Can we please grab ourselves by the collar, shake ourselves up and realise that this is is just one result.

I'm not denying we got outplayed last night, but that same team matched City at the weekend. Did we forget the way we played at the weekend? What is the saying? "One game, does not a season make" We played like dogshit, no defence of that. But to suggest the season is over after 4 games in the PL (in which we're undefeated) and one loss in the group stages smacks of a knee-jerk reaction rather than any real analysis or rational thought.
+5
We almost lost to city deffyduck, we escaped that debacle, but in truth our defending has being poor in last four games, people are not really mad about the loss, is the way we played that is getting people upset, it is reminiscent of our games against the big clubs away, we don't like we have improved.
+2
We're already saying season's over for us? lol Obviously the title is already locked down by Chelsea and we're gonna finish 10th.
we almost beat them, too. I don't understand how people can expect us to win every game, every week, against all opposition.

Wenger came out and said that Dortmund deserved it, rightly so. But it also has to be said that that performance was literally the worst we've played this season. That is not our maximum ability.

We've already seen glimpses of what the team can do. But it is naive (borderline stupid) to expect maximum performance every single game, every single week, forever. Some times it doesn't go your way and you have to deal with it.

This is a new formation and we're trying to bed in new players, too. It isn't like FIFA or Football Manager. You can't buy a player and apply a chemistry card. It takes time but we'll get there.

All I'm hoping for is a little faith from our "fans" rather than defaulting to "Wenger has lost it, he needs to go" after every single loss. We will lose games, that is inevitable with football at this level.
2- nil to bvb at home isn't that bad a result, but the manner in which we lost is the problem. Out worked, out played, and barely any fight
Hmmm food for thought


L: 2013/14 Dortmund 0-1 Arsenal
R: 2014/15 Dortmund 2-0 Arsenal

yeah i was trying to say yesterday, dortmund were all over you guys last year in germany and last night was even worse apparently. even still you could have gotten all 3 points though because welbeck had 2-3 great chances, and i think the first 1 or 2 were at 0-0, which may have changed the gameplan by dortmund.

what i will say is it is astounding how many times you were caught on the break given everyone knows dortmund has pace and will burn teams on the counter. poor tactics from wenger imo.
I watched a 3 minute highlight video after work and it was break after break of Dortmund. I was so happy to see Welbeck and Arsenal make 1 play in the highlight!
