Bet you wouldnt have said that 24h ago...

The guy is world class, no denying that whereas Kagawa has done a good job in the Bundesliga. Ozil was at that level in 2009.
Yeah I would say so, don't think that because he's joined arsenal I'm going to be biased. Ozil is great, but last season he was not as good. I watch real regularly and he made a lot of misplaced passes, poor fitness and uncertain performances. On form he was amazing and categorically better than kagawa. But he's not who they need. It's like telling chelsea to buy ribery when they have hazard(near but not quite that level), yeah ribery's better but it's not like hazard won't do the job to a high standard as well on form.

Yup, as is pretty much everything he says. People have sussed him now.

How much did Thiago go for in the end and what was his clause? If United are willing to spend 36m on this guy but pass up a chance to sign Thiago then that's just incompetence. And didn't Fellaini have a clause too?
I have no idea who he even is, I'm not really on twitter.

I think the Thiago thing was more about Pep than money. Once Pep got interested it was over really, play under Pep at Bayern or Moyes at United, even if you weren't a Spaniard it would be a clear choice with the rep of the managers and the current squads.

Tbh, I hate Man Utd because of our old rivalry (apart from the die hard loyalist fans, but i hate the plastics and prawn sandwich brigade), but I just hate City that much more, they have just taken the piss with buying strikers this season. Having said that, they might flop.

lol, I know the seasons young, but you're behind us in the league, and tbh, not looking like a threat in the slightest. I would honestly say that atm, I see Liverpool as more of a threat than United
Manchester United

Swansea (A)
Chelsea (H)
Liverpool (A)

Arsenal

Villa (H)
Fulham (A)
Spurs (H)

Strong logic mate lol, wait till you play one of the big boys before you get a hard on.

They play in different positions you mug (well Fellaini will when he comes here). Ozil plays in the position that Rooney plays for us.

Stick Cazorla on the left and bobs your uncle. Rosicky is class but wont last a full season anyway so there's room and plus Wilshere will probably play deeper alongside Ramsey/Arteta/Flamini.
End of the day, when you can sign a world class player you should. He's top top class.
He is a top class player, but considering you already have plenty of creative, agile, technical players, is the fee going to justify what Ozil will bring to your side? Surely it would of have been more logical to spend it on a top quality striker or DM, positions where you need to improve?

No they don't? All of them are midfielders, granted Ozil is an attacking midfielder, Rooney is a second striker.

Either way, Rooney or Ozil? I know who I'd want...

That's cos it took so long for anything to materialise. If United wanted to sign him they could have wrapped it up within a week. There was a solid month of talk about him joining United before Bayern were even in the frame. I think it was ignorance from Moyes, wanted to show he has a different philosophy and Thiago didn't fit into his plans but then missed out on Fabregas.

Oh I definately agree, I'm not trying to troll, but it's nice to see the glory hunters off their high horse for once. Interesting how you didn't mention Giroud, but chose our wingers one of them being injured?

In terms of longevity I would choose Giroud, but currently RVP is better (big injury risk tho)

Spurs are bigger than Chelsea and Liverpool atm, Fulham are close to Swansea and Villa are fairly good atm.

Wait and see, I think it's not gonna be united year, and the way you're getting all tetchy over it shows you are nervous...

Why are you bull****ting? City sell two strikers last season/this window, they then buy 2 strikers this season.

What is it with teams having gazzilions of AM, they don't understand it makes football so boring, 1-4-6-0 is going to be the away game formation in CL this season. Ozil is arguably playing in Arsenals strongest position in the pitch.

They certainly have a stronger squad depth wise, which will prove vital over the course of the season. Maybe Chelsea is an exaggeration, but despite yesterday I can see them being (as much as I hate to say it) a big threat this year, more than united thats a definite.

Tottenham have a stronger squad than Arsenal though...

Your manner of writing suggests that Arsenal are the team to beat this season.

You're wanted back on Planet Earth mate.

Pissed about Jovetic more than any other player tbh, I really think he could have been an amazing player for us. £22m was a very good price. All that talk about him joining and then they got him.

With Rooney and Suarez, I knew we had little chance because we are rival clubs, but a Fiorentina player was well within our grasp.

But hey, my judgment of the value of the guy might be wrong.
