Wenger apologises to Tottenham door after Ozil incident


Arsene Wenger has issued a heartfelt apology to a door at White Hart Lane after it was on the receiving end of a Mesut Ozil kick.

The German international took umbrage at being asked to do a dope test following the 2-0 win, and after telling the club doctor to feck off, he then booted the innocent door who was just standing there in a frame that had been cut into a wall.

“I am sorry that he kicked the door.” said the Arsenal manager. “I don’t think his frustration was towards the drug test, it was towards the game.

“I didn’t speak to him about it because I only heard about it today.

“I hope that door is ok, and that this has not been a traumatic experience,” he continued.

“Sometimes this kind of violence is hard to handle, and the victim can become unhinged, but these things happen.

“It’s not some kind of trap, and we don’t want Mesut to get involved in any more jambs of this kind.”

The door could not be reached for comment.

Was the door injured?

Arsene\'s zip

Yeah, stretchered off whilst making a 2-0 gesture with his fingers. The cunt.

I think Wenger has slammed the door on the controversy after these comments.

That door unfortunately jammed closed on the right wing of the house.


Trying too hard. -10 points.

Cheers Geoff


Out for 3 weeks

a different George

Unless there is a small setback in training.


What an a-door-able picture you have there Blogs! ho ho ho


From the estimated height of impact (bearing in mind mesut prbsbly did t give it an ibra or cantona kung fu kick), i suspect the door tore some ligaments n will not b able to shut for the rest of the season.

Don’t worry, he’ll be back in no time, delivering his usual in-swingers.


I’m not convinced it was Ozil. I think he might have been framed.

Now he has to go before an FA panel.

How did blogs latch on to this story?

Poor door. I for one do not condone violence against doors. Shame on you Mesut.

Arsene\'s zip

The matter is now closed.




Classic Wenger. Screened it enough to please the do gooders whilst leaving the subject slightly ajar so Ozil can handle the situation if he needs to.


If Ozil kicked the door it probably didn’t feel a thing especially if he put as much into the kick as he did in the game itself!

I know there’s a joke in there that includes the pun “don’t let the door hit you on the way out”…

At least the door was visible for everyone to see it unlike Mesut sometimes

I hear the door is out for 2-3 weeks. Which leaves an opening … for someone to take his place

Time to turn the knob on this one.


How Arsenal would it be if Mesut missed the next game with a foot injury


Does that count as a shot on target? Kicking that door?


Waiting for the Daily Mail headline.
“Wenger SLAMS door for being a victim”
And the follow up piece “Revolving door hits back at Wenger comments”

Did you know Arsene tried to sign that door 2 years ago?
Only now does this door understand that if you turn down Arsene you WILL get Oziled when you least expect it.


I heard the door was open for comment!


I wonder where this anecdote comes from? Especially as Wenger didn’t even know about it… What is in the locker stays in the locker…



Yankee Gooner

Can hardly blame Özil for trying to break on through to the other side of CL qualification.

/hat, coat, leather pants


That door is shit


did ozil play in the game? 🙂


They can’t have thought he was on performance enhancing drugs! Maybe they thought he was stoned?


Looks like an open and shut case to me…


Another wooden press conference. The key to kicking some life back into this season is to show some emotion, open up, swing into action, and when the boot is on the other foot not to be a door that gets kicked because of a piss test.


I think arsene handled this well


Seems like Ozil really flew off the hinges.

Also, fuck Tottenham, Wenger out, &c.

Arsene signs no one as the transfer door slams shut. Sorry! A poor effort.
