Wenger defends Ozil, dismisses RVP nonsense

Wenger defends Ozil, dismisses RVP nonsense

Arsene Wenger has leapt to the defence of record-signing Mesut Ozil labelling the German an ‘exceptional’ player who is still coming to terms with the physicality of the Premier League.

With a £42.5 million price tag hanging over him the midfielder’s recent poor performances have been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent days with certain media outlets chomping at the bit to write him off as an Arshavin-esque flop. Seriously?

Accepting that the 25-year-old was far from his best at the weekend, Wenger backed his star man to come good:

“He didn’t have the best of games on Saturday, but that can happen. He works very hard to adapt to the physical level of the Premier League and for me he is an exceptional player.

“I wouldn’t like to put too much pressure on him because he has been a top-class player until now. He knows when he is not good enough he will get questioned — that is normal.”

As is customary these days, the boss also had to face more transfer speculation nonsense with frothing hacks quizzing him on a hypothetical Emirates return for Robin van Turncoat.

“I don’t think that’s an ideal subject for us to treat today,” was the boss’ measured response (although we suspect he was actually thinking “What a bunch of cunts they put in front of me”).

“I think it is best we don’t talk about that at the moment. Robin van Persie is a great player, we know that. It doesn’t mean he has to score [against us on Wednesday]. It depends how we defend against him.”

Hopefully we don’t defend against him in the same fucktarded way we have in the three previous encounters with our former captain. Seeing him score against us every time makes Arseblog News want to stab itself in the eye with a rotting wishbone.

        • So, let me get this right:

          if Arsenal live up to your expectations; you support them.

          If Arsenal Don’t live up to your expectations, you stop (if even for a while).

          You are either a fan or not; good times and bad.

Let’s just hope he won’t take the advice of the pundits and decide to play Mata centrally where he could do us some damage. If we can’t beat a demoralised United there’s something seriously wrong.

        On another topic, I really wish Wenger would just brush these questions aside as now bbc sport, football365 and caught offside are all printing stupid fucking bollocks like ‘failing ozil given backing’ which highlights the situation and allows twats from other clubs to flood the comments with condescending guff. And people to tweet. And the papers to pick it up. I don’t think many people had noticed he was ‘failing’, because he isn’t. And now Robbie Savage has jumped on the band wagon. I hate the way the media do this. Take a positive comment and use it as a tiny footnote in an ozil bashing. Scumbags.

        • Robbie Savage is a knob who was overlooked for lower division players when it came to selection for the national team. People want to get off Ozil’s back so many players struggle in there first season in the Premier League he will get better so lets get behind him.

          On another note David Moyes must be pissed he keeps saying they have been unlucky. No David your team has been shit!!

    With Theo and Ramsey out it cuts down his options, I guess he was spoiled at Real.

    Thumb up 79 Thumb down 3

    • Exactly. With three fast and high-quality strikers moving in front of him, Oezil is lethal. Trouble is, with Walcott (last season’s top scorer) unavailable we’re not able to make use of his particular gifts. Wenger talks about his need to adapt to the physical side of the game, but I wonder if this isn’t as misplaced as expecting Arshavin to turn into a Vieira. No wonder Oezil is looking tired, bewildered and frustrated. Adapting to the physical demands of the Premiership simply isn’t his gift. He needs to be himself, directing pinpoint balls into the path of a Ronaldo or Messi, or, failing them, Walcott or possibly Ox. Giroud, for all his merits, is too busy doing other work to be the perfect striker for Oezil. Maybe Podolski is our best hope – in the unlikely event that he wakes up and starts to play 90 minutes.

      People used to call Arshavin lazy. No, he wasn’t; he just wasn’t suited to the job that was demanded of him (tracking back, covering for the full back) and eventually became disillusioned and ended his career barely making the bench. Calling Oezil lazy and suggesting he should be dropped as a punishment for his supposed lack of effort, as quite a few fans have been saying lately, is misunderstanding what made him the great player he was. Rather than grouching that he doesn’t run about and tackle enough, we ought to be asking why we bought him if what we really wanted was a different kind of player altogether; that, and why we haven’t got a striker he can play with.

      • Oezil? Am I missing a joke or is your spelling seriously bad?

        Thumb up 0 Thumb down 42

        • Nope, not a joke and my spelling in German is fine. An e following a, o or u in German = umlaut, changing the meaning and sound. (I can’t do umlauts on this laptop – the number code is fucked). Using e might be a bit frowned on if you’re writing something very formal – the equivalent of saying ‘it’s’ rather than ‘it is’ – but it’s perfectly acceptable informally somewhere like here or in emails. It’s one of the few joys of German. No need to faff about copying and pasting from character map which I have to with other languages.

      Thumb up 34 Thumb down 0

      • Wouldn’t it just. Draxler too could be the right sort of striker in time. Joel Campbell is very quick also and has a fantastic left foot.

        Oezi’s a visionary who looks like he’s standing in the middle of the pitch doing nothing. If that’s not to your taste, as it isn’t to some managers – it’s why Real sold him, to the consternation of Ronaldo and co – then you do better to buy a workhorse, a Mata perhaps, or, if that’s too expensive an modern Ray Parlour.

        Wenger loves central attacking midfielders and collects them in large numbers with the result that half of them end up playing out of position where, if they fail to adapt, their gifts go to waste and they end up like Arshavin. Seems he now fancies Ox for the most advanced central role. Great for Ox – I’m sure he’ll do brilliantly – but where does that leave Oezil and who’s going to do the defending?

        Thumb up 4 Thumb down 6

        • Uh I don’t think anyone believes Wenger is going to drop Ozil for Ox… Not to mention they play different roles entirely. Also tracking back and defending is the duty (now anyways) for all players, and Ox seems to do that just fine.

          Thumb up 17 Thumb down 1

        • I still think Ozil will come good – maybe not this year if he’s already gassed but next year definitely. Aside from last game, I haven’t had many qualms about Ozil’s “effort” and think you’re spot on Miranda about his play not being up to everyone’s taste.

          At Man U, I’d like to see Giroud playing less of the 2nd of the 1-2 passes on the edge of the box and looking to play the 1st pass at the edge of the box and turn. He’s quicker than Vidic/Smalling and strong enough to hold them off for a step if he gets in behind. Let Ozil/Carzola thread the ball and once that happens a couple of times Man U’s d should open up for some late runs like Ox’s goal.

          Thumb up 9 Thumb down 0

        • I believe he fancies the Ox as more of a deep-lying playmaker with passes and tight control, but also making runs from deep, Ramboesque one might say.

          Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

        • So Ox behind Oezil? With some combo of Ramsey/Wilshere/Arteta/Flam behind them? It’s an arrangement which would free Oezil to do what he’s good at (provide assists for slick pacy finishers) and let him off some defensive work. Sounds sensible, but I can’t help wondering why Wenger was never prepared to do the same with an Arshavin-Cesc combination.

          The Bould’s Eyeliner person says that Ox doesn’t shirk his tracking-back duties – I agree. But if Ox is to take on the burden of much of Oezil’s defensive work, won’t this limit his usefulness as one of our few pacy finishers who could latch on to Oezil’s inch-perfect balls?

          Thing is, expecting Oezil to defend simply isn’t realistic. Expecting him to play 90 minutes also isn’t realistic, not to judge from the way he was regularly subbed at Real. It’s why they sold him presumably. He fades, even when not required to do much running about and defending. For some managers this simply isn’t acceptable; nor for some fans, Bould’s Eyeliner among them, it seems. But if Wenger is also of this opinion, I’m wondering why he didn’t learn from his mistake with Arshavin.

          Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

        • If the Ox plays, it will be when we have no other option in Central for now – he’s much too underdeveloped. RW I can see. Either way, it’s not ‘realistic’ to just peg players in a spot like that, Arteta came as an attacking midfielder, and he’s transformed into one of the best DM’s. It comes down to positional discipline, and Ozil is actually much better at that than either Wilshere or Ox, for certain.

          Defending is a team endeavor, and it’s about coverage and balancing zone and man to man marking – it doesn’t mean you have to make gut-busting runs all day long back and forth.

          Rooney: 1666 league minutes, 43 chances created, 1 chance every 38.7 min.

          Of course there are tons of other players not in the big clubs, but I’m bored now. Man $ity players stick out, and Ozil is far and away our best creator. I wish one of those stats websites would do some sort of analysis along these lines.

If that’s the case, it’s clear he feels that he, and the team, can do more – and for me, that ‘unhappiness’ is the most beautiful and exciting thing i’ve seen in a new, fresh player. He has ambition, and it’s exciting.

    • Do you want him to call you out and give you s fucking hug?

      He enjoyed playing with Ramsey (celebration vs bvb anyone? thats a happy chap) and Walcott. (his through balls darling)

      could be the source of his frustration if anything. Giroud isn’t helping i must say.

    We can’t lose this. We can’t even draw. A win is a must.

    (I’m shouting) We need this! Yes, I’m talkin’ to you players and Wenger. We’ve been through shitstorm after clusterfuck for years. We’ve seen that bellend parading the trophy around and fawning over Baconface. We’ve seen him celebrate with fury after scoring against us. We had to give him a guatrd of honour at our fucking ground. The humiliation was unbearable. I almost fell out of love with football at that point.

    We’ve had enough. Make the bitch cry. Laugh in his face. End his season.

    If we don’t win anything this season, at least give us that. I will get drunk for days if it happens.

    For motivation, show the players the video of the team giving him the guard of honour at The Emirates.On a continual loop for seventeen hours.

  31. I am very sad and angry that Ozil is getting all the abuse for Liverpool defeat.
    Yes he lost possession twice that resulted in the two goals….but the whole team actually didnt turn up on Saturday especially our defence and defending of setpieces. The two early goals were the real game killers and both were preventable. He has nothing much to do with that part of the blame.
    Ozil is a creative player and he lost possession trying to create something from a 2-goal deficit at that stage. Creative players try stuff and when it works out, they will look good and nice but ocassions that they didnt come off, we still have to support them so that they dont stop trying to be creative….not condemn them to pieces!!
    Yes the first goal is suspiciously off-side, but the first player should have easily clear the ball but that didnt happen. Thes econd was worst. Why was that skirtel not tracked properly. He was heading but Kos was trying to defend that with his leg instead. The outcome is obvious who will win the ball. 2 goals under 10 mins…our players was shocked and their confidence rocked. Then came the third goal when Ozil was dispossesed in the middle of the park…in the process of trying to make something happen. Personally I cant blame him for that. Im sure he was very frustrated in the manner the first two easy goals were conceeded. They were two cheap.

    • There is a strange kinda philosophical meaning within your bad English and I mean that in the most positive way possible:
      “He has nothing much to do with that part of the blame.”
      “…they will look good and nice but ocassions that they didnt come off, we still have to support them so that they dont stop trying to be creative….not condemn them to pieces!!”
      my favourite: “Why was that skirtel not tracked properly”
      it even rhymed sometimes:
      “…our players was shocked and their confidence rocked”
      Love it

      but your right: they were two cheap ;-)

  32. The two setpieces goals were the turning point of the game. Not the lost of possession in the middle of the park and the last third of the park (4th goal) that cause the defeat. The two goals totally distracted the players from the game plan. The two goals resulted in some very nervous play. It is almost the same with City defeat. We were hit two on the quick and the defence just collapse together with the other players around it. Some fundamental,issue here perhaps? Arsene need all his experience to address them…and to do it ASAP!!
    Im confident we will trun it arpund this Wed and also on Sat when the livefools come to London. It will be a different game and a different performance. Both from Ozil and the rest of the lads.

  39. I don’t think we have a problem grasping the immense quality of Ozil. Despite not playing at his best, eh still delivers opportunities to the team.

    My main gripe with him at the moment is his negativity. He tends to drop his head way too quickly when things aren’t going our way. That neither helps the team nor him.

    Contrast Rosicky who will scrap for every ball and try and move us forward, particularly when the going gets tough.

    I think this is something Ozil can learn and improve himself with. It is a bit similar in some ways to Ramsey albeit Ramsey’s issue was being aggressive. He improved this element by 10% and suddenly he was a different player. If Ozil can keep positive and work hard when the chips are down, he can easily find the sort of extra gear/form that Fabregas found in his last 2 seasons with us, scoring goals and creating.

    Against United, I fancy him to start and try to put things right. It won’t do him any good with his confidence otherwise.

    However if he still exhibits the defeatist traits if we go behind, it may be better to have Rosicky come on in lieu to add a competitive edge which was so lacking against Liverpool.

    Let’s hope Ozil turns it around and brings in a storming performance to proof everyone wrong. Nothing to banish criticism with say a hat trick against the old enemy? not too much to ask for surely.:D

    • OTOH Wenger is correct that Ozil should not be singled out cos the performance of the team all round against the mugmashers was absolutely abominable.

      The defense you would think have a point (or 3) to prove.

      I hope Wenger starts Gibbs (and he is fit to start). Monreal has been good going forward but is still suspect(let’s say getting use to) at the back. Gibbs has been far more solid defending.

      Like to see Podolski at some stage to. Santi is in form and should start but there could be good option for us to introduce Podolski and switch Santi RW maybe second half with Chamberlain dropping into Jack’s spot (if the latter is struggling for fitness, he won’t want for desire). Alternatively, Rosicky can also come on for a fresh pair of legs to chase.

      Point is we should be fully using our assets through the game rotating in midfield to keep momentum and sustain ourselves at full energy pressing high for the full 90. if we don’t rotate, we ware less likely to do so.

  44. I’m wondering why no one has commented on Wenger’s reply to the Van Persie question – apart from name-calling, that is – because what I take from his response is that he’s not at all ruling it out. I mean, in addition to saying that it’s an inappropriate question at this time, he could easily – and I’d have expected him to – said that our even contemplating buying back an injury-prone geriatric would be completely insane. We’ve got fatter fish to fry, ought to have been his reaction, livlier younger fish forming a long queue to join us, and hundreds of millions of pounds available for the purchase of these desirable fish.

    Depressed though this thought makes me, I wouldn’t be remotely surprised if Wenger and Van Persie had already been talking on the phone, discussing his future return.

  54. These pundits and sports reporters are what’s driving Ozil into the ground. Sure it was a high price tag, but he didn’t himself ask to be subject to such a high transfer fee. As such he can’t make one bad pass without being completely scrutinised by a wide selection of people who fail to understand the pressures of having to deliver based on your transfer cost. To be honest I’m surprised Ozil’s self-confidence and motivation has been as high as it is given the constant shredding by the media. The same thing happened to Henderson when Liverpool went on their huge spending spree, yet now that the media attention has subsided he can concentrate on his football performance rather than just performing well enough to justify his inflated price. So let’s not allow the price tag to dictate Ozil’s future at the club, and let’s support him through this rough patch rather than jump unto the “flop” bandwagon along with all the so-called sports “experts”. And, as always, COYG!

    • After ramsey turned a corner so hard i couldn’t believe i would have though this personal vendettas against players would have been over and done with.

      People want to quickly dismiss Ozil because of his price tag, in their minds they feel he should be producing voodoo assists and playing that much better than the regular £10m player. That is their first mistake.

      The second one is forgetting Ozil is 5 months old into this physically demanding league. He is yet to fully adapt so finding his best form shoulf come eithe late into the season or in the next not that he’s doing so bad now.

      And is Ozil is playing poorly now ( which mind you he isn’t) then i’d like him to become better in the next season rather than arrive with chamakh-esque impact and later wander into mediocrity.

      People will be eating their words soon enough (even before next season) i can even feel it. Ozil is just that good….
