Re: Can you blame Ozil for leaving?

I can not blame him for wanting to leave, Wenger let this happen with the contracts and now Ozil and Alexis control the situation. If it was not Wenger, then the Arsenal hierarchy are to be blamed. What is interesting is that Ozil looked pretty average for him last season but picks it up when he is in the shop window himself. Alexis on the other hand already has his deal in place and is just taking it easy to save himself for next season, so he can play with the Champions next season injury free and fresh.Pretty sick to have the players run the team like these two have, which we can only blame ourselves.

What should we blame Wenger and the club for? For not giving into Ozil's demands and paying him £300,000 a week? That would've been an utter travesty. That would've been throwing a lot more good money - £15 million a year, to be specific - after bad money, because Ozil wouldn't be playing this well had he been signed up until 2021. That's the point.

This is absolutey not a player who did all he could to help Arsenal win major titles. This is not a player who gave 100% every week. This is not a player who was constantly let down by his team-mates. This is not a player who deserves your best wishes when he joins somebody else in January.

We shouldn't even boo Ozil if he goes to Man United and plays against us at Old Trafford, nor should we applaud him. We should treat him like he doesn't exist and that's because 70% of the time he f*cking didn't.
