Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil is apparently back in the mixer after his iffy first game against Mexico. Mr Löw said this of the German’s reaction.
“After the match against Sweden, Ozil showed a great reaction in training, as I expected from all who didn’t play,”
He’ll start the game against Korea as Germany chase qualification in a tournament they’ve certainly stuttered in so far. Good for you Mesut, I hope you make 6 assists.
Argentina made it through to the next round beating out Nigeria late on. It looked like Maradona had dropped an 8 ball of something special up in the crowds, there are rumours he’d been hospitalised after the game. The man must have some tolerance at his age, he must have a few bag men to get the fucked up during a game.
Ever Banega had Arsenal fans panties all up in a twist as he ‘liberated’ Messi (perhaps he hospitalised Maradona?)… he even popped up with an assist. That’s what I call World Cup window dressing. I’d take him, he’s experienced, he’s fiery and he has levels to the class in his game. If Arsenal are shooting for top 4 next season, we need to bulk out with experience. I’m just not sure I’d be happy paying £17m for him.
In other news, Kike Marin, the Spanish Ornstein, reckons we’re going for Lucas Vazquez of Real Madrid. It seems we’re keen on a wide man, and according to reports, we’ve made a decent financial offer for the player. These sorts of rumours usually happen when the client is looking for assurances. The Spanish wide man bagged 7 assists and 4 goals from 16 starts, which gets makes me damper than Wayne Rooney’s back on a Mega Bus trip. At 26, he’s at the right age, he’s never going to be more than a squad player for Madrid, so it’d be a good move for him.
Great to read that we’re going hard at signing in some additional attacking players. I’ve been wondering if the lack of sales is to do with the coach waiting to see him players in the flesh? Will there be a late July fire sale after a week? Or did the club do it’s big shifts in January?
All very interesting. I’m tapping out, lots of work to do. See you in the comments.
