But your opinion doesn't count since you hate all things Arsenal. So just saying Mata is better than Ozil means nothing to us.

Hahaha!!!!!!!! The hater admits other players matter yet he wanted to compare Mata to Ozil. Wonderful. Would you prefer to compare Man U to Arsenal than? That would include other players. I guess at the moment that would not be a comparison you would be to keen on would it? Go back to your own hater!

Despite the importants of needing time to adjust if you compare this season"s stats Ozil destroys Mata's stats. Mata creates 2.3 key passes per appearance and Ozil creates 3.0 key passes per game.
If Ozil played with RVP or a capable finsher he would lead the league in assists as well. At the moment I think he is 2nd.
Ozil has made more starts for Moureen per game in charge by Moureen than Mata has.
There is little doubt Mata is fine player and it was perhaps harsh for him the way Chelsea and Moureen got rid of him without a thought but there is one thing certain, statistically he is inferior to Ozil this season, despite his years of PL experience.
But who cares about Mata??? He doesn't even play for us.
He should only be relevant to Vicar the Arsenal hater.

Mata is a wonderful player, but despite playing with superior goal scoring team mates he loses the only objective battle to Ozil which are the stats but I guess that fact is too hard to deal with for the Arsenal hater. Hatred seems to have poisoned your brain

Your expertise about reading statistical feed back seems to have a perfect negative correlation with your display of your blind hatred for all things Arsenal.

For those who accused Ozil of not working hard last night, you may be surprised to learn that he was the third best player on the pitch in terms of distance covered, with 11.69 kilometres. Jack Wilshere was just ahead on 11.8 and Flamini can be forgiven for having a go at his teammate because he covered a massive 13.53.
He made more clearances than any other midfielder, had more touches, more interceptions, shots, shot assists and so even though his performance dropped after the penalty, he did not just stop trying.

Interesting fact on Ozil's match stats:
"For those who accused Ozil of not working hard last night, you may be surprised to learn that he was the third best player on the pitch in terms of distance covered, with 11.69 kilometres. Jack Wilshere was just ahead on 11.8 and Flamini can be forgiven for having a go at his teammate because he covered a massive 13.53. I think Flamini was actually shouting at him for not defending properly. I’m not sure if you realise this, Mathieu, but Ozil is not a defender.
His effortless looking style seems to make people think he is strolling around, but the stats clearly prove otherwise. He made more clearances than any other midfielder, had more touches, more interceptions, shots, shot assists and so even though his performance dropped after the penalty, he did not just stop trying."

Moyes the oracle of football. This is getting good. Keep them coming.
Moyes knows best.
(He knew how to get Everton ahead of Man U)

hahaha! You know you got to someone if they can only reply to the spelling of the message. Light weights value form over contents.

I think he was trying to hard and missing the penalty didn't help. Having said that I think there is reason to worry with respect to rumors of him not being happy in London and Ballack saying he does not look like he is accepted by his team mates. Did Ozil have a private conversation with Ballack and vented a little in private? Ballack was discreet in his comments and made sure it looked like it was his own observation but these guys talk to each other all the time.
I am not worried about Ozil adapting to the PL. This takes time for some players. I am more worried about him feeling at home in London and at the club.
Look how RVP fell of a cliff once he was no longer happy at Man U. When a player is not happy it more often than not effects his performances on the pitch.
I hope Wenger will buy an other one or two world class players this summer to ease the burden on Ozil.
I do have to say that he does have an unfortunate demeanor on the pitch. I think he cares a lot but appears not to care.
I have been saying for a few weeks that Wenger should rest him and maybe he waited too long. If he rests him now it will look like Wenger is taking him out of the wind.
Credit to Flamini for barking orders at him. We need leaders on the pitch.

you are improving. You strike ma as some one who has withdraw symptoms from this forum within the hour. Keep up the good work. Is the therapy working?
Both these guys have signed contracts until 2017. Not so sure if that is good news. For me Arteta is handy in the PL games against teams other than the top 4 but other than that he is too slow and getting too old. I was hoping we would go out this summer and looked for an other Flamini type defensive or a bit more box-to-box type of midfield leader. 2017 is a long time from now. I expect Arteta has only 1 more season in him at the level we want him to be at.

The answer you are quoting was about Moureen and his little horses and big horses comments which was mentioned at the beginning of the interview and later it was suggested Moureen is trying to distract from his teams chances. This suggestion was not made by Wenger but by a reporter. Wenger simply stated the obvious which he likes to do, namely that it hard to distract when you are in first.
- Govinda Govinda Feb 18, 2014 09:09 Flag
I thought we were talking about the first question: Reporter: Why do you think it is, every other manager apart from you and Pellegrini every other manager is saying no, we can't win the title, we're not contenders?
You don't think Moureen has been trying to deflect attention from his own team by branding City and Arsenal as favorites? You don't think that now that Chelsea are in first it looks even less convincing for him to say they are not amongst the favorites?
You a funny dude.
I spoke to the Vicar and he assured me Arsenal had a chance to win against Bayern. Myself, I am pretty sure he is looking through is red and white tinted glasses. I think we would need a miracle to progress to the next round and more likely it will come down to how badly we will lose. I don't think there will be much shame in this since I think Bayern are the best team in the world.
I also think with our squad having been thinned out considerably that it will be blessing in disguise if we get knocked out.
For me there is only upside potential tomorrow because realistically we have to expect the worst and hope for the best.
Anyone believe we can surprise the football world and eliminate Bayern? (Maybe not a good sign the Vicar thinks we can)
