    Ozil is a great player to bring on when you're 2 up at home against average teams, but against anyone who will play at a high tempo he struggles to have time and find space. Italy would be good for him but he wouldn't get that sort of wages so it's down to Woolwich to finance part of them wherever he ends up.

    I hope he stays and stinks the place up for a few seasons.

    To be fair, he was having a good season last year up until they gave him a new contract. We've been there ourselves before but thankfully not at that price.

    To be fair to Piers Morgan, he is very good at what he does i.e. being a cvnt.

    I thought that. Even went to the trouble of watching the opening few seconds of each video to see if they gave a clue (eughhhh!). Couldn't understand a word they were saying tbh :confused:

    Same here. I wish I could revel in the disaster that is Arsenal TV the way others seem to, but I simply can't understand any of it.

    I love the guy Claude from AFTV. He always starts off depressed and sort of melancholy, but then ends up going off on an angry rant, especially when the little black fella with the headphones pipes up with some nonsense haha. When they lose, I just watch Claude and have a good laugh!

    Exactly this and the main reason the 120k offer was taken off the table by Arsenal is that the league is now hitting a realisation that players are being paid too much.

    Man United are willing to run down De Gea contract rather than give him a new bumper deal because they have made mistakes in offering the likes of Sanchez 400k+ a week, even Man City apparently have had talks to say there is a limit to all this and enough is enough, its not sustainable in the medium to long term.

    Ozil is on £350k a week and is a player that Arsenal over long periods have not even been convinced on, thats carnage really.

    I believe it's the wage increase rule that is holding them back rather than not having money to spend - you can only increase your wage budget in line with your revenue growth (or something like that) and with them missing out on CL seeing their revenue fall it makes increasing their wage budget a bit of a no go
