Mesut Mania continues and the latest player to voice his view is our very own Santi…. He’s been talking to Marca:
I am very happy that Özil is here. He is a spectacular player and we are very lucky that we are going to learn alongside him.
I don’t understand that (why Real Madrid sold him), he is a unique player.
You will have to ask the club for reasons why they sold them, but at the same time he didn’t think he was getting the opportunities he deserved and luckily he has come to us.
He is an important player and he is going to be very good for the team and the way we play. I hope he can help us fight against the big teams in the Premier League.
I always find it quite funny to read things relating to us beating the so called big teams. Of course we need to be beating those sides who sit at the top of the league season after season but what about those who are mid/bottom half of the table clubs?
Last season we dropped points against:
And of course, the neighbours at their ground.
All in all, that was a huge 25 points!
Winning the Premier League isn’t only about beating the top sides, by beating those below us we will always remain somewhere around the top 3/4.
Of course we need to win a few more matches against the Manchester sides and Chelsea but where we seriously let ourselves down last season was in fixtures we really should be winning.
Not only in the league did we struggle but in both domestic cups. We were knocked out by clubs from lower leagues and we really were poor during both.
If Mesut Ozil helps us to beat them all, then things will be very rosy. Somehow, I think it will take a lot more than just one man signing on the dotted line.
Talking of the messiah, he has landed at Arsenal.
I’ll be glad when he’s played his first game and things calm down…..
Until then, have a good day……
