The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been pretty disappointed with Mesut Ozil’s performances this season, but not many were expecting this…
BBC Pundit Garth Crooks has delivered a surprising claim regarding the German in his Team of the Week, suggesting that the German may well be better off at Tottenham next season. He said: “[Ozil is] a player…[that] would be more appreciated at a club like Tottenham…frankly it is a better fit”.
Crooks has really generated a bit of discussion in the Transfer Tavern, though very little of it is overwhelmingly positive. Unsurprisingly, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been riled up – and have been quick to state that they think that the Gunners are a bigger club than Tottenham.
That being said, you can certainly see where Crooks is coming from. Tottenham are a side that play football in a very similar way to Mesut Ozil’s natural style. Heavy on passing and movement, there is no doubting that Ozil would be impressive in Tottenham’s first team – though you could argue that on current form, he would struggle to get in the side.
Ozil’s performance against Stoke was uncharacteristic this season – because he was very impressive. The German has struggled for much of the campaign, so the Gunners are hoping that his impressive display against the Potters is a sign of things to come.
