Michael Owen wrote:Arsenal have no world class players and Mesut Ozil has been far too inconsistent since his transfer from Real Madrid, according to Michael Owen.

Arsene Wenger's side are perched at the top of the Premier League with 35 points after 16 games, though their form has wavered with consecutive defeats against Napoli and Manchester City.

Though he reserved praise for Olivier Giroud, the former Real Madrid attacker ripped into Ozil's performances since arriving in the Premier League and suggested Arsenal will drop off from the title race unless they sign another striker.

"There is little doubting that Wenger's men are now a well-oiled machine," Owen wrote on social networking site Sportlobster.

"The players all know their jobs inside out with Wenger rarely changing his system and against the lesser lights in the league I always fancy them to out-score their opponents.

"It is against the big boys where I think they could struggle as, in my opinion, they don't have the class of player to go toe-to-toe with the main title contenders.

"Despite people constantly telling me that Mesut Ozil is world class, his inconsistency means that we only see occasional glimpses of real quality.

"His odd good performance is usually followed by half a dozen poor ones and despite Giroud performing admirably, unless Wenger acquires a new striker to help share the load, they could just tail off the longer the season goes on."

Michael Owen fears David Moyes made a critical error in the summer by raiding his former club for Marouane Fellaini - who has failed to impress since his £27.5 million move - rather than England starlet Ross Barkley.

"Moyes would have expected an instant return on investment when buying Marouane Fellaini," the ex-Red Devils striker added.

"I rate him highly in a certain type of team but I’m not sure he is a Manchester United player.

"Moyes would have been better served by breaking the bank for another of Everton’s players. A team consisting of two of the best youngsters in the Premier League, Adnan Januzaj and Ross Barkley, would have immediately sent out the message that Moyes is building a team to last.

"[But] there is no doubt in my mind that David Moyes will be a huge success at Manchester United for years to come."


An therein lies my decreasing respect for my once favourite who now spends his time as a laughable pundit within the Premier League Review who with every passing week continues to display how clueless he is off the pitch.

Whatever.

People define the term 'World Class' in so many ways that the term has lost its meaning.

OT: For me, he is. (Though the inconsistency thing is true)

Are you confident that you're going to see a great Ozil on any given game or are you wondering which version will show up that particular day? Ozil can be WC in a game obviously... but he's so freakin inconsistent. He drifts in and out in a season. You can't blame age and/or injuries either.

For those saying that he's adapting to the EPL... he was the exact same way at Madrid.

Love him... but he hasn't made the commitment to the game that the greats do yet.

Ozil is one of the best, if not the best, central attacking midfielders in the world. If anything, the reason why Arsenal under-perform against higher quality teams is because they don't have enough players of Ozil's calibre.

He didn't really say Ozil wasn't World Class, he just said he was inconsistent and that's true. Arsenal just need an elite striker to go along with Ozil, which would relieve the pressure off him.

I think his definition of WC is very narrow like mine... Arsenal has good to very good players everywhere though. So AS A TEAM, they are definitely up there. They also have a couple of players that can put in a WC performance like Ozil and Ramsey. I want to say Cazorla too.. but i haven't really seen it this year yet.

I think I agree with Owen.

Özil can be special at times, but he can also be inconsistent... and he lacks in some attributes a bit too much to my liking. A world-class player can produce something stunning all on his own and I don't think Özil has quite got that.

I'm a guy that appreciates hardworking players, and to me Özil ain't that.

I love to see midfielders drop off and do a good defensive shift at times, and Özil can't do that.
And if you tell me "well Özil is a CAM" then I'll tell you that he hasn't played there for us most of the times. Sometimes he is asked to drift out to the left or right flank. And in our team being in that position requires you to track back and help out defenders. And that's something that Özil is very, very poor at. Sometimes when he gets dispossessed it looks like he couldn't gives 2 fecks about reclaiming the ball back. He just walks or jogs on. That's something that really pisses me off. He needs to work on that.

Whether he is world class or not. I'm not quite sure, he definitely is class, but he still has to prove to me that he is a world class baller.

You people need to stop over-caring for these things.But whats important here that Owen is definitely not exaggerating.

Exaggerating would mean Carlton Palmer calling Hart the best GK in the world last season.Now thats some exaggerating.

Arsenal remind me of Juventus in some ways.Both are well-oiled units but i think both lack that extra leap in quality, to make bigger strides and achieve greater things.Just what i feel.

Ozil is world class and is doing fine at Arsenal, but it's true that he is a bit inconsistent.
I think he could up his game if he was given more passing options, Giroud is not really great off the ball and Arsenal play with 5 midfielders very often. A new striker and Walcott could improve Ozil's game.

Lol at the sudden agenda against Ozil just because he doesn't play for Madrid anymore.

He is World Class. There is no question about it.

Owen's "His odd good performance is usually followed by half a dozen poor ones" comment couldn't be any more wrong. That is why the article is full of shit like Owen himself

Like Guti, Özil can/could be a game decider against any opposition, and that's what makes them both such valuable players to any team. Ideally, I would have preferred to use them both as subs, since none of them have/had the stamina to perform on the same level throughout 90 minutes, and they're both quite inconsistent, overall. Obviously, you can't use such a player as a sub - at least, not if that player is still relatively young and has a high price tag, like in Özil's case... or a huge ego, like in Guti's case Razz But they're both elite-level impact players, and the way I see it, that would be the optimal way to use them.

I considered Özil a world class AM when he played for Real Madrid (the best AM in the world, in fact), and I don't see why that should change now. I don't remember him ever performing well over 90 minutes, but more often than not, he did enough during those 90 minutes to make a real difference.

Both Guti and Özil are/were inconsistent, and for that reason, I think It's understandable that not everyone will rate them as world class. My opinion is that they're both valuable enough to any team, to be considered world class, regardless of their inconsistencies.. and that's what's most important, isn't it?

.

I get why you think he doesn't work hard, but he does, the numbers back it up as well. He uses a lot of energy up with his movement, he makes a shed load of (intelligent) runs to provide the outlet and that does require hard work. You cant do that AND be a work horse tracking back, unless you have inhuman stamina. He already is one of the players that runs most in our team (statistically)

I could go into a real tirade about that tranny loving waste of God giving talent that is Guti but I shall not. No RM fan would or more specifically, should underrate Ozil. The man was quite good during his time here and a RM fan usually appreciates the mercurial talent even though they can be inconsistent...to which Ozil is.
