Ozil injury worry as he misses Scotland game

Mesut Ozil’s absence from the German squad to face Scotland this evening will raise worries over the former Real Madrid man’s availability for next weekend’s game against Man City.

Ozil hurt his ankle in the final stages of the Leicester game and required lengthy treatment on the sideline. Had the Gunners not already used their three subs, the chances are he wouldn’t have come back on.

Despite hope in the German national set-up that he might be fit for tonight’s game, his absence will be a concern for Arsene Wenger as his team get ready to face the champions at the Emirates on Saturday.

It’s also possible that he’s just not quite fit enough for today and could be recovered for the weekend, let’s keep fingers crossed for that.

Danny welbeck to the rescue

A to the HA

Shad to the rescue

Daniel

I swear we’ve had even more bad luck since he joined :3

Ces1ne

LMAO….Why is this down vote so many times? He’s not insulting our new fitness guru nor casting any blame on him. He’s just stating a fact…….the amount of injuries has been more than usual even for us!!! Not Shads fault, injuries are just part of the Arsenal Way now unfortunately.

Formerly Known As El Capitano

Bollocks..

Hopefully Shad Forsythe has some ‘highly efficient’ fitness techniques ready for Ozil as soon as he’s back at Arsenal HQ.
I know he hasn’t been firing on all cylinders as of yet, but damn it.. we need that little bug eyed pass master fit for the weekend, we’ll need his passing skills if we are going to have any hope of breaching City’s defence…. the humongous mass that is Vincent Kompany’s forehead.

Ben

I’m expecting big things from him this season. He has had a full season to acclimatize and now has pacy runners for his through balls. I’ve kinda stayed off the criticism so far but come the end of the season he really cannot have any excuses.

AC

Fingers crossed he will be OK againt the Man City! COYG

dan

Injuries aren’t valid excuses?

rohit

barring one.. if he is not played in his natural position and is utilized on wing, I think he can be excused.

Arsenal Fan #2

He’s a world class player on his day, but against Leicester he looked very poor and contributed nothing to the team. I know he was played out of his favored no.10 role, but he should done better. This raises doubts in my head as to whether he should be fielded against Man City.

neutral

Every game he misses, or plays badly in, I just think of Fabregas.

Why Wenger? Why? (it is not like we don’t have the money)

AP

2 words – Ramsey, Wilshere

Toure Motors

Paging Kim Kallstrom

Red Cannon

Or how ’bout just Jack Wilshere?

Dara

Now it’s time for Shad to show us his magic

Ben

….Guess we have got to send Kratos to Olympus to kill the injury gods….

bazza_wicks

hopefully the german coaches saw some sense and didnt risk him unlike some have in the past with our players

heroldgoon

Ozil has again started sluggishly. as someone said no excuses for him this season if he doesnt live up to his own tag ” everyone knows i am one of the best players in the world”

AN Other

Is it just me or is anyone else getting bored of Shad jokes?

Dara

But i’m sure he won’t get bored here 😀 Just kidding, hope he gets bored

Swedegunner

Good thing they’re jokes, otherwise people would have you think he’s a physician and not a fitness coach.

Jth

Hyperbole bollox. Any strain is pushed for whore hits.

Laudgunner

At least other players,have to step up now, Rosicky and Campbell… Wishing Ozil all the best..

Bould's Eyeliner

I’m expecting Rosicky to have a cameo against Man City as well. Probably not Campbell although it seems he definitely has the big match mentality already in him, I’d much rather see the usual players ahead of him.

Deano

Hope he’s available be nice to see what link he can forge with Welbeck

CB

Or it could be that Germany reckon they can beat Scotland without him.

dexterthebear

Which they clearly can

Rich

Good, he’s a lazy cunt who offers very little variety to his game.

Aedan

Okay Gary, back to your crisps

That’s Rich… Coming from you.

Aedan

I’ll put it this way
People who think Oezil is bloody brilliant: Arsene Wenger, Joachim Low, Bastian Schweinstiger
People who think Oezil is utter shite: Jamie Rednap, Alan Hansen, All my mugsmasher friends
I know who I’d be siding with

Indian_Gooner

As strange as it may sound, you can even add Jose Mourinho to the list of people who are fond of Oezil.

Phil

Don’t forget C. Ronaldo, he was moaning a bit when RM sold Özil to us.

Sarbajit

add platini, he asked for Ozil’s jersey at the WC

AP

Oh there are few in this forum as well in the Hansen category.

Alright Mate

A shame to lose him for the City game, if that is the case. But it really is a good thing when we have such sufficient depth that losing Ozil for a game or 2 should not harm us much.

Moxxi

Great kicking off the season with injury to two key players, 3 including Walcott. And Koscielny has an achilles acting up on occasion. Fack me cant we get a break? A Well run club standing on its own two feet, giving youth a chance, active in the community, contribute to charity, managed by a gentle soul whom care for his players. Why are the gods choosing to back clubs run by corrupt oil money and bloodmoney connected to the mafia? I guess it is true nice guys/clubs finish last. Oh wait, could it actually be our own fault? the Gods… Read more »

TL;DR

Meh

tl;dr

Ces1ne

Ummmm, obviously Pep has shown thru the years he hasn’t been Cesc biggest fan on the pitch & also chose to bring a certain young Thiago over to Bayern with him instead of Cesc.

Truth hurts

Hey Moxxi, transfer window is closed.
You should’ve been ranting this earlier when it mattered.
Now, we are talking about the squad we have not the one u think we should’ve had. Ok?

Goontang

Time for rosicky rock star to save us

La Défense

Yayyy now Cazorla can play central in the free role – where he had some of his best performances. Let’s please get back to 4-2-3-1 with Arteta/Flamini and Ramsey in central midfield. Sanchez and Campbell/Wilshere out wide, and That Guy up front!

Crossing fingers~

mashkeyboardgetusername

Thumbing you down for the “Yay”, (don’t like it when people celebrate injuries,) but I see where you’re coming from, if le boss is forced back to that system and it works better then that’s a nice silver lining.

Xxxrob

I love ozil and I think he’s just amazing on his day but any games against the top 5 are gonna be 6 pointers this (and every year it seems from now on).

I would rather rosicky or cazorla in the number 10 for those games regardless of ozils fitness state. Bring him on if you have to later on but we have a criminal lack of urgency at the start of big games and it starts at the front, 10, midfield to the defence.

Rosicky or cazorla for me in big big EPL games, European games are different

Arseblood

Two months.

santori

Portugal defeated by Albania Frankly don’t understand the hype around this Carvalho chap. Had it been Arteta playing, some people will be laying the blame on the Spaniard for being too slow. Carvalho is like MVilla, Gustavo or Wanyama. Remember them? all touted as super physical type player we need and none of whom have thus far gone on to anything. More media masturbation as they fantasize about what arsenal need to improve. Ozil injury is OK we have Santi, Alexis and Rosicky able to play in the position. Podolski, Campbell and Ox are available out wide. Plenty of options.… Read more »

Wenger's Tits

Wilshere under Welbeck and Campbell and Alexis wide. I don’t see it any other way except maybe Ox wide if he doesnt get hurt between now and Saturday. Don’t know why Campbell isnt getting a chance.

Wellpecks

hope the shad can awaken the team out of their early game slumber. some heat rub on the ahole should jsut about do it.

ljb

Ozil missing City? Good, playing with him in the team is like playing with 10 men, the lazy bastard.Waste of money.And if Mourinho liked him that much,how come he didn’t try to buy him for his beloved Chelsea eh? Should have flogged the useless frog eyed one and bought Cesc Jose knows? More than bloody Wenger thats for definite.

Aussie Gooner

Some times it seem people are genuinely trying to garner as many thumb downs as possible. Arseblog masochist I dare say. If there is such a thing the guy above is one of them.

kafka

you don’t know much about football do you? go out and do your thing, “facking run about a bit.”

easy tiger

Agree. Ozil has been VERY poor for a long time and he is very lacy indeed. But we never praise Maureen.

Ólafur

Haven’t noticed Özil having any particular problems with his boots. Don’t know where you’re getting that from.

AP

Or he was stealing from his girl’s wardrobe 😉

easy tiger

😉

Neil #2

Hope he’s ok and hope that Arsene plays him in his best position rather than out wide.

fresh prince

Not just fackin run arrrand a bit but at least track your fucking man or when you do track back at least close down the bloke on the ball instead of jogging alongside and sticking your lazy leg out about 3hrs after he’s played the ball.

Its not rocket science.

Also how come arsenal players have this mythical year to bed in but Chelsea/City/Liverpool players don’t need? Can’t remember Aguero, Silva, Toure, Costa, Hazard etc etc taking ages to bed in.

Pearson

Every time I think of Cesc Fabujlous with that blue shit on I want to poke out my eye with a rusty nail and I come to realise that I may hate football.
Get well soon Mesut!
Up The Arsenal!

easy tiger

Well with our luck he probably will be fit for the city game, and give the ball away on the half way line 5 times and we get well beaten. With any luck he is out and we can play Wilshere instead. He will be up for a fight!!!!

TJ

I don’t think he’ll be greatly missed. Been a bit off color recently IMO. Am I the only one that finds it odd he’s described as ‘the former Real Madrid man’. After over a year he’s an Arsenal man period.

Injured Gooner

What the Arsenal needs is goals. We need those at more regular intervals to give us that bit of settling in that comes after a confidence building run of results. I think Ramsy and Sanches has scored the bulk of the goals thus far. We need goals from the other guys as well to add to the unpredictability of our attack. With Giroud out for a few months, it leaves even most Arsenal fans uncertain of how the players will line up. Even though Danny did well this evening against the Swiss with his two well taken goals, the question… Read more »

VINCE

I can’t wait for that man city game. Watch arsenal put to be let all these nonsense in the media.. And trust me we won’t be missing ozil I can guarantee that! It’s a game of high intensity ad commitment and those are not ozils strong attributes. I expect cazorla to up his game like he usually does in games like these.. Sanchez to be in the score sheet and welbeck to make a point. And we might get a surprise inclusion of Campbell I’m looking forward to it. It’s gonna be a great game and arsenal will come out… Read more »
