6 Football Terms You Must Know If You Love Football (Part 2) 4. Channels. There are 3 channels. Channel 1 is straight through the middle of the pitch towards the penalty box. Bojan Krikic in yesterday's match between Stoke City and Manchester United was fouled by Ander Herrera as he exploited channel 1 right after Stoke conceded the second goal. Channel 2 is the space between the right centre back and an advancing right full back. Channel 3 is on the opposite left side. Sergio Aguero is a master of these channels as Mesut Ozil was with Real Madrid. 5. False 9 The false 9 as the name implies is not a true No.9. He is an attacking midfielder or even a forward who mimics the position. Instead of playing as a target man or an out-and-out striker, he moves away from the opposition penalty box deep into his own half through the middle, thereby pulling along the centre backs with him. This enables the other midfielders to find spaces behind the defense and score goals. Francesco Totti was among the first crop of ...
Wenger: Ozil will be back to his best after injury lay-off The Arsenal boss feels that the World Cup left the German midfielder with little energy while he also denies that there is a rift between Alexis Sanchez and the ex-Real Madrid man Arsene Wenger is confident that Arsenal fans will see the best of Mesut Ozil when he returns from his latest injury lay-off. The Germany international is recovering from a knee ligament injury suffered on international duty, with the timeframe for his return set back until after the turn of the year. Ozil has been criticised for some under-par showings in the early weeks of the Premier League season, though Wenger puts that down to tiredness after winning the World Cup, and the former Monaco boss believes that the midfielder's return will coincide with improved performances. "I think, at Real, he played in a very strong team," the Arsenal manager told BeIn Sports, "and he had a very good season with us last year. "But he had the World Cup and came back tired. We will see ...
Cristiano Ronaldo's opener for Real Madrid in the 4-0 defeat of Granada on Saturday saw him break Isidro Langara's 79-year-old record for the most goals scored in the first 10 La Liga games of the season. Langara set the record in 1935-36 when playing for Real Oviedo after scoring 16 goals in his opening 10 matches of the campaign. Ronaldo, however, notched his 17th of the season as Madrid secured three points to move top of La Liga, while he reached the target in just nine games, having missed the 4-2 defeat against Real Sociedad in August through injury. The Portugal captain has not scored as many goals at this stage in La Liga during his last five campaigns at Madrid, having previously managed a best of 11 in 2010-11 and 2012-13. Ronaldo's strike against Granada was teed up by teammate Karim Benzema, before the former Manchester United man returned the favour, and that turned out to be the 39th and 40th assists between the pair since they started playing together in 2009. It was the 15th assist that Ro ...

Mesut Ozil missed one game in all of his three years at Real Madrid due to injury. At Arsenal he has missed 6 months of his first year there. Now, it might just be me, but Arsene Wenger must be training his players wrong, or doing something not quite right. It is the only way you can account for all the injuries Arsenal get, it us truly amazing. I know some would turn around and say "it is the Premier League, it is a lot more aggressive." But even then, other teams don't get the amount of injuries Arsenal do, at an incredible rate to. Arsene Wenger must be missing something.

Arsène Wenger believes Mesut Ozil will thrive at Arsenal - even if he can't always play in his favoured No 10 role. "Of course," he said. "The main man is the one with the ball. The others have to give him solutions to play. Every teams finds a way to go through its strong point. Subconsciously, a team will go through were its strong points are. "Zidane went to Real Madrid for £82 million and he played on the left. He’s not quicker than you and me! There was never a debate and he had to play there, because in the middle they had Raul and Ronaldo and he made room and played on the left. When you have the ball you play where you want and go where you want. "What is Wilshere but basically a No 10? He played his whole life at No 10. Somebody had to go out there. Is it Wilshere, Ozil or Ramsey… nobody is really natural out wide. So you keep good players out or you try to get them together."
"When he came to Real Madrid with Arjen Robben he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team but then Robben was sold. Two years ago it was Gonzalo Higuain sold and he didn't like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let Mesut Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria this summer." Who are they talking about?
Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, right, duels for the ball with Atletico de Madrid's Juan Fran during a Spanish La Liga soccer match at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain, Sunday, Sept 14 2014 . (AP) The die is being cast. The backroom bargaining may have even begun. However, the most potent hope Manchester United fans have of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford is the fact that Real Madrid have lost. Again. Not just any loss this, but a 2-1 loss to Atletico Madrid, which now leaves them six points behind league leaders Barcelona. Real having lost two of their opening three games of the season and all murmurs about Ronaldo not being happy about the changes at Real are getting louder. The spine of the Real team that allowed CR7 to flourish these past years is gone. Angel Di Maria? Gone. Sami Khedira? Gone. Xabi Alonso? Gone. Mesut Ozil? Gone. Ronaldo made it publicly known that he was not happy to lose some of those players, especially Di Maria. Ronaldo did score his 13th goal against A ...

Premier League preview: A breakdown of the upcoming season. ARSENAL Manager: Arsene Wenger Last season: 4th Player to watch: Arsenal paid a club-record $66 million transfer fee to Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013, a move that gave the Gunners one of the world’s best playmakers. Now with a season in England (not to mention a World Cup title) under his belt, the German superstar is looking to justify his huge price tag. Forecast: Once the envy of the Premier League, Arsenal has in recent years become synonymous with underachieving and failed expectations. Then again, only a championship is good enough for Gunners fans, meaning that this season will also end in disappointment. Aston Villa Manager: Paul Lambert Last season: 15th Player to watch: Star forward Christian Benteke has plenty to prove after an Achilles rupture ended his 2013-14 season ahead of schedule and ruled him out of Belgium’s World Cup squad. Forecast: An indifferent owner, an unpopular manager and a mediocre roster —welcome to the w ...

Mesut Ozil about Benzema’s renewed contract with Real Madrid. I think I'm gonna cry 😭😭😭
Arsenal still 100% keen on Sami Khedira The Gunners are hopeful they can do a deal with Real Madrid Arsenal are still interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, but are in need for him to lower his wage demands. The Gunners are in the market for a holding-midfielder, and despite Morgan Schneiderlin, Lars Bender and William Carvalho being linked, it looks like Khedira is Arsene Wenger's first choice. It has been reported that earlier in the Summer, everything was agreed between the two clubs, but the deal fell through due to Khedira's whopping wage demands, which were so high that it would have made him Arsenal's highest ever paid player. Madrid are keen to sell the German international, and despite interest from Bayern Munich and Chelsea, they are keen to see him go to Arsenal, where he can join up with fellow Germans; Per Mertesascker, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil.
Khedira keen on Gunners move Sami Khedira is pushing for a move to Arsenal, reports the Daily Mirror. The Germany international has rejected a contract offer from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain, and is keen to swap the Spanish capital for the Emirates. It is believed that Khedira's compatriots Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker, already at Arsenal, could be instrumental in seeing the transfer through. A potential stumbling block in any deal is Khedira's wages though: he currently gets £150,000 a week and Arsenal would have to make him their highest earner if they are to bring him on board.

Arsenal to break bank for another world class German superstar. Mesut Ozil’s connection could play a role in the potential switch… Arsenal are targeting the high profile transfer of Real Madrid enforcer Sami Khedira. The Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be willing to fork out a hefty £23 million for the 27 year old, who has only one year remaining on his current deal at the Santiago Bernabeu. While Khedira may not be a vitally important player for the European Champions, who have plenty of resources at their disposal, the Gunners are in desperate need for an experienced and capable enforcer to protect their back four. The North London club probably reckon that their reasonably hefty bid could seal the deal for Khedira, particularly since the former Stuttgart man might want to follow in the footsteps of his former club teammate and best friend Mesut Ozil. Reports suggest that Ozil’s presence at the Emirates could send across good vibes to Khedira about Arsenal, and we might well see the ...
Cesc Fabregas was told he could not replace Mesut Ozil. Cesc Fabregas has claimed his proposed transfer back to Arsenal hit the buffers when Arsene Wenger conceded he would not be able to fit his former captain in the same team as club record acquisition Mesut Ozil. Fabregas completed a transfer to Chelsea last week, with the west London club having paid €33 million to sign him. But this deal only became a possibility once Arsenal had passed on the opportunity to purchase the Spain international. Arsenal had an option to buy Fabregas, as was a stipulation of the deal that saw the 27 year old join Barcelona, with the player himself confirming that the Gunners were the first club to have been offered the chance to recruit him. Fabregas has since revealed that the reason Arsenal were not willing to pursue a move was because Wenger did not believe he would be able to accommodate the Spanish playmaker in his team, while still getting the best from Ozil, who joined last summer from Real Madrid for €50 milli ...
THE BLUES FABREGAS. It is obvious Chelsea FC & its fans think they have scored some forms of victory over their London rivals, Arsenal by signing the Gunners former captain in the person of Cesc Fabregas. However, a critical look at it reveals this isn't so. Yes, Fabregas is a great player & would have been a wonderful addition to the injury prone Arsenal team. However, it is a no-brainer that spending £30 Million on a player for a position you are well stocked in when there are other areas calling for quality re-enforcement would be a poor business decision. In addition, Arsenal are reportedly getting £5 Million from the deal. And this isn't about Chelsea being richer than Arsenal. No player in Chelsea history cost as much as Arsenal's Mesut Ozil. Bigger players had equally taken this path. Ronaldo De Lima went from Barcelona to Real Madrid via Inter. Luis Figo swapped Barcelona for Real Madrid. So this isn't a novel 'coup' for Chelsea to boast about. CHELSEA FC & THE FANS SHOULD CELEBRATE SIGNING ANOT ...
Arsenal want to sign Real Madrid and Spain keeper Iker Casillas before the end of the World Cup. Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a new keeper to provide competition for Wojciech Szczesny after the departure of Lukasz Fabianski to Swansea. And Madrid-based paper AS claim that Wenger's number one target is Casillas, who was frequently rotated with Diego Lopez by Real boss Carlo Ancelotti last season. The 33-year-old has three years left on his contract at the Bernabeu but his wages decrease year on year and that may force him to *** his options.Wenger is hopeful Casillas' compatriot Santi Cazorla and former team-mate Mesut Ozil can convince him to make the switch to the Emirates. Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Cardiff keeper David Marshall and have had a £6million bid rejected. AS, meanwhile, claim that Wenger will move for Malaga's Willy Caballero or Saint-Étienne's Stephane Ruffier if he can't sign Casillas.
'Cesc Fabregas' The Arsenal are not pursuing Barcelona midfielder.. Story by David Ornstein at BBC Sport .. Arsenal have informed Barcelona they will not be exercising a buy back option on former player Cesc Fabregas. The Gunners inserted the clause when selling Fabregas to Barcelona for £35m in 2011 and were given first refusal after Barca decided he could leave. It is understood Fabregas 27 was keen to return to Arsenal but Manager Arsene Wenger is not looking to recruit a creative midfielder. The decision raises the prospect of the player joining one of Arsenal's rivals. Mesut Ozil arrived at Arsenal from Real Madrid last summer for a club record £42.4m on a five year contract, while the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Alex Chamberlain and Tomas Rosicky are all part of Mr Wenger's plans. Arsenal's priority is to bring in a striker to compete with Olivier Giroud and a right back to replace Bacary Sagna with goalkeeping cover also needed after the exit of Lukasz Fabianski.. They ma ...
Long-serving Arsenal director Lord Harris of Peckham insists Manager Arsene Wenger will be fully backed by the board again this summer. Wenger broke the club's transfer record last August when he signed midfielder Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid for £42m. Lord Harris is adamant Arsenal remain ambition to challenge for the top honours, and he claims there are very few players the club would not be able to afford. "We want to win the Premier League and the Champions League. If we buy two or three players then I think we can," Lord Harris said in the London Evening Standard. [Sky Sports] - Eddy

Arsenal: Potential 2014/2015 starting XI. Arsenal's potential starting XI for the 2014/2015 season. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have as much as £100 million to spend on new player this summer and the rumour mill is already in full swing, with speculation intensifying as to which household names will arrive through the doors of the Emirates Stadium before the Transfer Window slams shut on 2nd September. Last summer, Wenger stunned us all by splashing out an astronomical £42.5m on Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil. But who could be among the Gunners’ shock signings this summer?

LA DECIMA Contrary to innuendo from a section of over excited Real Madrid fans concerning the Champions League final last Saturday, I actually predicted the Whites would win against Atletico Madrid. In fact, in my analysis I singled out the danger Angel Di Maria would be in his new role (Lo Renzo remember the Mesut Ozil aside?) And Di Maria was the official man of the match. I said Real Madrid would emerge champions though my heart wanted-fact-Diego Simeone's side to win. Wait a minute! Atleti got a bitter taste of the cruelty of football. Kind of reminds their fans not to make monkey chants and gestures to African and black players. Karma. The lesser evil triumphed. Let us see how Spain does at the World Cup. It is the racism in some of them that I hate. But La DECIMA was well deserved in the end for Real Madrid. And I said so prior to the match-in fact after they eliminated Bayern Munich (no selective amnesia Fidelis Silungwe). Congratulations to all good Real Madrid fans! (And sorry imposters who canno ...
Arsene Wenger has been given permission to break Arsenal's transfer fee record for the second summer in succession just a year after the £42.5 million acquisition of Mesut Ozil. The Gunners have become renowned for operating on a more stringent budget than those of their Premier League peers, but The Times (subscription required, h/t ESPN FC) quotes club director Lord Harris of Peckham in confirming that the Ozil fee could be beaten: [...] We would. It would be easy. I wouldn't say it [the total transfer budget] is 100 million pounds, I wouldn't say it's 50 million pounds and I wouldn't say it's 150 million pounds. If Arsene has asked for any player then we have always backed him to go and buy. With the exception of [Lionel] Messi, [Cristiano] Ronaldo or [Gareth] Bale, we could buy most players. The North Londoners are still revelling in the success of last weekend's FA Cup victory over Hull City, the club's first trophy in nine years.

Assessing Arsenal: The need to strengthen By Max Bentley | May 19, 2014 3:34:09 AM PDT Transfer Windows for Arsenal fans are like opening a Christmas present from your grandmother -- you just don't know what to expect. Arsene Wenger pulled off a real coup when he landed Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid before demonstrating his familiar January stubbornness by only adding Spartak Moscow midfielder Kim Kallstrom to his injury-ravaged squad -- an odd signing given the Swede was injured at the time as well. Having led the Premier League standings for 128 days this season, Arsenal witnessed their title challenge collapse following a series of humiliating performances on the road and untimely injuries to Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Ozil. A comeback FA Cup win over Hull showed the squad have some fight in them, but changes are still required.

Wenger will have the spending power to spend £40 million on a striker this summer, which is apparently what Real Madrid want for Karim Benzema. But I don’t think the France international will be playing for Arsenal next season. The Express are reporting that Madrid have let the Gunners know that they would be willing to sell their star striker, but only for enough money to help them bid for one of their top targets, Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero. But even though this deal would get Arsenal a top class striker and damage one of our Premier League rivals, I cannot see our manager going for it. The Prof may have proved last summer, with the transfer of Mesut Ozil, that he is willing to splurge on the right player, but he also showed with the Higuain saga that he will not pay what he considers to be over the odds. And with Benzema having just a year left on his current contract, Wenger will surely consider £40 million as daylight robbery. Should Arsenal just pay Madrid what they want, offer them less, or ...
Arsenal Fc 1 vs 2 Hull City - In Progress — 26′ Refresh scores 25′-Arsenal now plundering forward. From the free-kick, Mesut Ozil latches onto a loose ball outside the area, and produces a fine volley, which is headed away by Curtis Davies, who diverts it away from goal. 24′-A crunching tackle from the full-back, who is late on Bacary Sagna. The France international is writhing in pain, but the referee awards a foul, and no booking. 22′-Cazorla gives Meyler the slip, and Arsenal drive forward in numbers, as a roar goes up from the Gunners fans inside the national stadium. The tide is turning, and in Arsenal's favour. 21′-Ozil attempts to create an opportunity in the box, but he wastes what is a superb chance. Great ball from Giroud, towards Podolski, who finds the Former Real Madrid man, but Hull clear the danger. 20′-Trouble for Hull City, as El Mohamady requires some treatment after that collision with Bacary Sagna.

Within a day of Sir Alex Ferguson being spotted sitting next to Juventus boss Antonio Conte at the Europa League final, rumours linking Manchester United to Arturo Vidal have really gathered pace. Italy’s Sports Mediaset suggested Fergie had discussed a €32m offer for Vidal and now two more names have been thrown into the hat in Barcelona and Real Madrid, who are also keen on Vidal this summer. The reports have been picked up in Spain by Sport and from United’s perspective, competing against Madrid for a player is not one of our favourite past-times in recent memory. Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane all chose Madrid over Manchester and with the potential of being European Champions next year, Madrid would be an enticing prospect for any of the world’s best players. As for Barcelona, they have a chance to salvage something from a poor season when they take on Atletico Madrid this weekend as a win will see them lift the La Liga title and now that their transfer embargo has b ...
ARSENAL TRANSFER UPDATE 8th May, 2014. German international recommends Arsene Wenger makes move to bring youngster to the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has recommended that Arsene Wenger makes a move for unhappy Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze according to Football Direct News. The youngster moved to the Allianz Arena in a £33m deal last summer but has played something of a limited role this term leading to speculation that the German international may look to make a swift exit from the Bundesliga outfit. Gotze has publicly spoken of his dissatisfaction with life in Bavaria, stating; ‘Of course I’m not happy,’ he said. ‘I want to win back the trust of the coach to play more.’ The 21 year old has started 20 of Bayern Munich’s 33 Bundesliga fixtures but perhaps more tellingly failed to make the starting eleven in either of his side’s encounters with Real Madrid in their recent Champions League semi-final clash which has led to a great deal of interest in the goal-scoring midfielder ...

Arsene Wenger has revealed that Mesut Ozil will be available for Arsenal's match with Hull City this weekend. The £42m club-record signing from Real Madrid has not played since March 11 because of a hamstring injury. He missed Arsenal's 3-1 Premier League victory over West Ham United on Tuesday, a result which saw the Gunners climb above Everton and back into the top four. Wenger confirmed to reporters after the game that Ozil could be in the squad for the trip to Hull on Sunday, a preview of the FA Cup final which will be played between the two sides at Wembley in May. The German international has scored six goals in 35 appearances for the Londoners this season.
Q. Why did Mesut Ozil chose Arsenal? A. Arsene Wenger. Whilst money is king in the current game, the manager can also play an important part. Would Mesut Ozil have left Real Madrid to play for David Moyes, Brendan Rodgers or Tim Sherwood? He probably does not even know who they are. Last year, Everton finished 6th in the Premier League. David Moyes then joined Manchester United. He then spent the summer trying, and struggling, to recruit players from Europe. The money was there, Manchester United, one of the biggest names in world football, were Champions, so why did he struggle? My theory is players, when told that David Moyes wanted them at Manchester United, answered ‘David Who?’ – He ended up signing just one player, who used to play for him, and who he did not really want. Another question: Who currently manages the 6th placed team in Spain, Germany, France & Italy?Hint:The clubs Real Sociedad, Borussia Monchengladbach, Marseille & Parma. Not only do you not know, players will not know. Despite ...
Mesut Ozil: Arsenal's record buy out for month with hamstring injury By David Ornstein BBC Sport Mesut Ozil's hamstring strain will keep him sidelined for at least four weeks, scans have revealed. The Arsenal midfielder, 25, was injured in the second minute of Tuesday's Champions League exit at Bayern Munich but played on until half-time. The club's £42.4m record signing will miss Sunday's trip to Tottenham, as well as games against Chelsea, Swansea, Manchester City and Everton. Mesut Ozil Born: Gelsenkirchen, Germany Age: 25 Previous clubs: Real Madrid, Schalke, Werder Bremen International: 53 caps for Germany, 17 goals Honours: Spanish Super Cup (2012), La Liga (2011-12), Copa del Rey (2011), DFB Cup (2009), DFL Supercup (2009) He is also doubtful for the FA Cup semi-final against Wigan on 12 April. Arsenal then travel to Hull on 19 April, with fixtures against Newcastle, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich - plus the yet-to-be-rearranged visit of West Ham and a possible FA Cup final - to follow before th ...
The Arsenal fans in the top tier of the Allianz Arena left no room for doubt. 'Wemberlee, Wemberlee,' was the chant; they had travelled 570 miles to sing about a stadium on their doorstep. It was not that they wanted to exit the Champions League at the last 16 stage for the fourth successive season, but rather they knew the limitations of their team and where their chance for success lies. After nine long, arduous years without a trophy Arsenal just want to win something. Anything. Even the Emirates Cup would be a starting point. An FA Cup victory would do very nicely. With Wigan, Hull City and Sheffield United the only teams standing in their way it would be genuinely embarrassing if they do not win the trophy for the 11th time in their history. Yet Tuesday night in Munich presented both an opportunity and an obvious danger. Despite the travails of Mesut Ozil it will have given Arsene Wenger great heart that his side proved up to the test in Bavaria. A 1-1 draw was perhaps slightly fortunate, but in the ...

SHOCKING!! . Xabi Alonso has revealed the real reason why Real Madrid sold Özil >> . .
There are some interesting reports circulating this afternoon claiming that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has made contact with Mesut Ozil to inform the playmaker he’ll make ‘every effort’ to sign him from Arsenal this summer. Ozil played under Mourinho at Real Madrid and played a key role in the side that lifted the La Liga title in 2011/12 to establish himself as one of the best playmakers in Europe. The 25-year-old then made a shock £42m move to Arsenal on deadline day back in September and after a promising start to life in North London, he’s recently come under strong criticism following some lackluster display’s. Ozil headed back to Germany on Sunday to spend some time with his family after being given an extended break by boss Arsene Wenger, but it seems he’s also got an ally a little closer to home with reports in Spain claiming that Jose Mourinho still keeps in touch with the attacker. According to Spanish outlet AS, Mourinho has been sending Ozil messages of support in recent days advi ...
Arsenal legend George Graham says Mesut Ozil looks "sad". The Former Real Madrid midfielder has struggled for form since the New Year. "When he first came into the team he was outstanding and gave a lift to the rest of the players," Graham said. "But his form has dipped very much and I think the pace and intensity of the English game have caught up with him. He looks sad now and mentally he needs to come back."
Then there is this school of thought that Real Madrid sold to Arsenal the Trial Version of Mesut Ozil, and now the trial period is over.
"Mesut will be one of the best players who ever played for Real Madrid." (Iker Casillas)
Serge Gnabry has described Mesut Ozil as a "strong person" and says he has learned a lot from his compatriot since he signed for the Club. "He's a brilliant player. He showed it when he was at Real Madrid and he showed it when he was the World Cup. "He's a big part of our team, he helps the team create something up front and he's just a very special player. He's a strong person. Obviously you are disappointed when you miss a penalty in such an important game but that's football. "Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win but we're a team and we win together. It's not just down to Mesut that we lost that game. We stick together and work towards the next game - I hope we can turn it around in the second game. "I've picked up a lot of things from him. He's a brilliant offensive player. I'm trying to watch his game and trying to adapt to what he does in a game. He's just a brilliant player and it's nice to have him in and around the team." Gnabry missed a spot-kick in the Capital One Cup shoot-out against West Br ...
Under-fire Arsenal play-maker Mesut Ozil has reportedly begged Arsene Wenger to let him keep taking penalties – Despite missing his last two spot-kicks. Ozil was widely slammed after missing from the spot during the Gunners’ crucial Champions League last 16 first leg clash with Bayern Munich in midweek. The German won the penalty with his clever footwork, but his poor effort wasted the perfect chance for Arsenal to go ahead against the Bundesliga giants. It’s the second time he has missed from 12 yards for Arsenal this term, having also failed to convert one against Marseille, while Ozil also has a poor penalty record from his time at Real Madrid. We still love u ozil keep it up! Come on gunners.

I don't that think people are shocked he missed a penalty, Bayern missed a penalty as well, it's just he takes his penalties in an unusual way.

According to 'Football Direct News',Real Madrid could make a move for Monaco winger James Rodriguez this summer. The Spanish giants are admirers of the talented 22-year-old, who first caught the eye of a number of top clubs whilst at Porto before eventually becoming part of the revolution at Ligue 1 giants Monaco. Having lost Mesut Ozil to Arsenal last summer—a move that manager Carlo Ancelotti later admitted he regretted—the La Liga giants are eyeing improvements in that area, and have identified Rodriguez as an ideal solution. Playing in a variety of attacking midfield roles, the youngster has notched up an impressive four goals and ten assists in all competitions this season, showing a creative side that could help ease Real's loss of Ozil.

SEPTEMBER 2013 The summer Transfer Window slammed shut in September, but only after a number of high-profile signings among Barclays Premier League clubs. Arsenal made the biggest signing of all with hours to spare and ended the month top of the table, helped by a win over Tottenham Hospur, while Manchester City ran out winners in a thrilling Manchester derby and Paolo Di Canio left his post as Sunderland head coach. September started well for Arsenal, as a single Olivier Giroud goal helped them beat North London rivals Spurs at the Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger followed the result up by signing Germany and Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil the next day, the final day of the summer Transfer Window, for a club-record fee. Liverpool made their best start to a Barclays Premier League season since 1994/95 when they beat Manchester United at Anfield on the first day of the month for their third straight 1-0 victory, with each of the goals scored by striker Daniel Sturridge.

Gonzalo Higuain's goal helped gave Napoli a 2-0 win over 10-man Arsenal in their final Champions League Group F game, as the Gunners qualified in second place following a late victory for Borussia Dortmund away to Marseille. Arsenal needed a point to be sure of seeding for the knockout stage, but will now likely face one of Europe's leading sides such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or Paris St Germain in Monday's draw. Higuain, who was a summer transfer target for Arsenal, slotted home on 73 minutes to finally break Arsenal's determined resistance and after Mikel Arteta was shown a second yellow card, it was always going to be an uphill battle to get back into the tie. Jose Callejon chipped in a second during stoppage-time, but it was not enough and Rafa Benitez's men must now regroup for the Europa League. Napoli started brightly, cheered on by their ferocious support at the Stadio Sao Paulo, with Goran Pandev forcing an early save from Wojciech Szczesny. Arsenal, though, should have gone ahead ...

‘Prem giants to vie for Dortmund star’ – Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly on alert after Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted star midfielder Ilkay Gundogan could leave the club. The Germany international, 23, is yet to agree a new deal at Dortmund and interest is mounting on the £25m-rated ace with the Gunners and United believed to be leading the chase. Paper Round’s view: Reports in Spain last month suggested a deal was in place which would see Gundogan move to Real Madrid with Nuri Sahin moving to Dortmund on a permanent basis, but this is an interesting potential twist. Arsene Wenger is understood to be a huge admirer of Gundogan and is keen to pair him with his international team-mate Mesut Ozil, but surely it is United who need the midfielder more.

According to ESPN United have been in contact with Real Madrid over the possibility of signing midfielder Mesut Ozil, more updates to come.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho remains a fan of one-time target Shinji Kagawa, and could be ready to offer one of his main playmakers in return to Manchester United to land the Japanese star. The Blues boss revealed earlier this month in an interview with a Japanese publishing company that he was interested in signing Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund during his time as manager of Real Madrid, though the presence of Mesut Ozil and other creative players at the club meant he did not pursue this option. Kagawa eventually went to United, though he has not managed to establish himself as a regular at the club and is looking to move this January, with his old club Dortmund among those keen to snap him up. However, SportsDirect News can reveal that Mourinho may look to bring him to Chelsea, as he senses an opportunity to sign him again. Although his side are again stocked with similar players, he has not been altogether impressed by the likes of Juan Mata and Eden Hazard so far this season, and could offer one of th ...

Wayne Rooney has cast doubt on Arsenal’s Premier League title chances. After extending their unbeaten run to eight matches in all competitions with Tuesday night’s goalless Champions League draw with Real Sociedad, Manchester United’s focus is now trained on Sunday’s showdown with Arsene Wenger’s men. Despite negative pre-season expectations around a club that has won nothing since 2005, Arsenal have shot out of the blocks. Not convinced: Wayne Rooney is not sure if Arsenal can win the title The arrival of Mesut Ozil who Rooney once advised Sir Alex Ferguson to sign from Real Madrid appears to be a masterstroke and with all their rivals making a faltering start, the Gunners have already established a five-point cushion at the top. But Rooney is remaining cautious about their threat. For there have been plenty of times in the past when Arsenal appeared capable of mounting a sustained challenge, only for it to peter out when the pressure starts to be applied later in the campaign.

IS MESUT OZIL STRUGGLING TO ADAPT TO EPL PACE? Mesut Ozil has raised the profile of Arsenal since his mega-money transfer from Real Madrid. But the Gunners' £42.5 million man has stumbled, rather than sauntered, his way through recent games, particularly in the English Premier League. He is a player often defined by his languid style, who has joined a league noted for its frenetic pace. So it's reasonable to ask: Is Mesut Ozil struggling to adapt to the pace of the EPL? The question becomes relevant given a number of, let's be polite and say sluggish, recent performances. Not all of those have been in the league, but Ozil has yet to deliver an outstanding performance in the division. Instead, he has shown his unquestioned talent only in fleeting glimpses. There have been isolated examples of brilliance, rather than complete dominance. Ozil's latest indifferent showing was a mere footnote after Arsenal emphatically swept Liverpool aside 2-0. I actually felt his performance against the Anfield club wasn't ...

Santi Cazorla cannot wait to team up with Mesut Ozil in the heart of Arsenal's midfield at Crystal Palace. The Barclays Premier League leaders will be looking to bounce back from their midweek Champions League home 2-1 defeat by Borussia Dortmund when they travel to Selhurst Park for Saturday's lunchtime kick-off. Ozil was somewhat subdued against Dortmund, which was a first for the German playmaker since his club-record £43million deadline day move from Real Madrid. The midfielder, though, did almost help conjure up a goal for Cazorla, who curled a 20-yard effort against the angle in the second half, which ended with a late breakaway goal from Poland striker Robert Lewandowski to give Dortmund a crucial victory in the battle for qualification from Group F. Cazorla, just back from an injury lay-off, feels it is a partnership which can help drive the Gunners on to success this season. ''As the days go by we have a better association on the pitch,' the Spain international said. 'We have got to know each ot ...
Rooney (2010)... The former United boss has revealed that Wayne Rooney cited a 'lack of ambition' for his wanting to leave Manchester United in 2010. "At that meeting, he [Rooney] was hugely sheepish. I felt he’d been programmed in what he was trying to say. The basis of his complaint was that we were not sufficiently ambitious," he wrote in his autobiography. "My response was to ask Wayne: ‘When have we not challenged for the league in the last 20 years? How many European finals have we been to in the last three or four years? "I told him to say we weren’t ambitious was a nonsense. Wayne said that we should have pursued Mesut Ozil, who had joined Real Madrid from Werder Bremen. "My reply was that it was none of his business who we should have gone for. I told him it was his job to play and perform. My job was to pick the correct teams. And so far I had been getting it right." On How Ronaldo Was Sold... The Scot writes: "Madrid paid £80 million in cash for him, and do you know why? It was a way for ...

It's hard not to be excited by the prospect of Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund meeting in the Champions League Tuesday. Two teams with similar playing philosophies, both with idiosyncratic (perhaps somewhat eccentric) managers, and until recently they shared a handicap: an inability to compete with the big boys in the transfer market. which meant their ripest talents were there for the picking. Arsenal, of course, have moved beyond their age of relative austerity by making Mesut Ozil the most expensive German player of all time, and his impact on the club both on and off the pitch has been immediate. -Dortmund's Klopp hails Gunners -Flamini out for Tuesday Meanwhile, Dortmund lost their Fabregas, Mario Gotze, to Bayern Munich. Not in the summer, not when it suited them, but hours before a Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid. Bayern flexed their financial muscle, the bully-boys showing the small boys who was in charge. That they beat them in the final (Gotze played no part due to injury), surely jus ...

Arsenal: Mesut Ozil Injury Update Gooners around the globe would have been in a state of fearful shock since the moment when they saw their star play maker Mesut Ozil limping off the pitch after taking a knock in the Germany’s 5-3 victory over Sweden (yesterday).

Barcelona playmaker Andres Iniesta admits that he was surprised to see rivals Real Madrid let Mesut Ozil join Arsenal.
Arsenal's Germany international midfielder Mesut Ozil has admitted he is loving life in the Premier League. The Former Real Madrid man, who joined the Gunners in a £43million summer move, is currently on international duty as he and his team-mates prepare for Friday night's World Cup qualifier against the Republic of Ireland. But much of the focus from the German media was on Ozil's new life in London. He said: "Driving on the left-hand side. I thought it would be much more difficult than it really is. But Per Mertesacker gave me some 'driving lessons' and they helped me, so I can drive there. "London is an interesting city to live in. I have grown to love the place in a short space of time. "The guys in the Arsenal team and the coaching staff are fully behind me. They have given me great responsibility and that's what I feel great about."

Mesut Ozil spent 20% of his salary at Real Madrid to Fund this Masjid in Germany
Just like (really) old times for Liverpool FC As the boys in Spinal Tap once wisely observed, there is a fine line between stupid and clever. When Arsenal bid $60 million to bring that lovable scamp Luis Suarez to the Emirates over the summer, I worried that Arsene Wenger had finally descended into total oblivion. But much like the massive difference between 10 and 11 on a speaker amp, Wenger's subtle gambits take a keen eye to appreciate. If I had one, I might have picked up on the intent of Wenger's audacious poker play. He was never really interested in Suarez as anything more than a bluff, a Machiavellian masterstroke to throw Real Madrid off the Uruguayan's scent and to drive the price to such a preposterous level as to force the Spanish giants to channel all their energy -- and money -- into procuring Spurs' best player, Gareth Bale. As the Welshman's price tag soared to the heavens like Gervinho's hair line, Madrid found itself looking for someone to help defray the cost. Willkommen, Mesut Ozil, an ...
Former striker Stan Collymore says fans are wrong if they think they influenced Wenger in signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.
West Brom 1 Arsenal 1 Jack Wilshere rescued a point for the Gunners as a deflected shot earned a point for Arsenal in an entertaining match that could of went either way. The leveler sent Arsenal back to the top of the Premier League summit with Liverpool going into the international break. The Baggies, fresh from downing Manchester United last weekend, had ample opportunity to extend their lead after Claudio Yacob headed home a Morgan Amalfitano cross in the 42nd minute. But it was Arsenal who ended the game in the hunt for the points after Wilshere, looking to replace reports of late night smoking with more positive headlines, scored with a deflected first-time shot from 20 yards, to the fans humor who were chanting ‘he smokes what he wants’. Arsene Wenger went on to praise the English midfielder as his best second half of football this season, overshadowing 42.5 million signing Mesut Ozil since his arrival from Real Madrid.

Wenger believes Mesut Ozil has revitalised Arsenal LONDON (AFP) – Arsene Wenger believes his club record swoop for Mesut Ozil has revitalised Arsenal after the Germany midfielder inspired a 2-0 win over Napoli with his first goal for the Gunners. Wenger splashed out £42.5 million ($68.9million) to lure Ozil from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day and the midfielder’s arrival in North London has coincided with a remarkable revival in Arsenal’s fortunes. An opening day defeat against Aston Villa looked set to spark unrest among unhappy Gunners fans, but Wenger has managed to get Arsenal back on track in emphatic fashion and he gives much of the credit to Ozil. Although they were already improving before his arrival, Ozil’s presence has given real belief to both his team-mates and supporters frustrated by Arsenal’s eight-year trophy drought. Arsenal have won five of their six matches since Ozil’s debut at Sunderland last month and Wenger agreed that Tuesday’s impressive Champions League win ...
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger claimed Mesut Ozil “delivered everything you want to see from a great player” in the Champions League win against Napoli.

Happy, happy Arsenal fan. Forget your troubles for the time being and enjoy your happiness. I suggest the family member to ask for a treat to-night while you are in this mode. Arsenal defeated Napoli by 2-0 last night in the Champion League. Mesut Ozil scored the first goal, first time with his leg foot more than 20 yards in the centre- just like Dennis Bergkamp used to do. He set up the second from the right by line for Giroud to score in the 6 yards box. The mistake of Rafa Benifez was he didn't put a player to do the man-to-man marking of Mesut Ozil and let him roamed freely from left to right to center. Argentine striker,Gonzalo Higuanin ,who signed for 34 Million pound from Real Madrid, said to show why he rejected Arsenal and joined Napoli. Now he had to eat his words.
Manchester United have offered Real Madrid €50m for Mesut Ozil, Arsenhed, you'll never cry for the same reason again
Mesut Ozil bewitched Napoli to conjure up a 2-0 Champions League win for Arsenal and end the Italian side's unbeaten start to the season. The Germany midfielder scored the opening goal, his first for Arsenal, with a superb left-foot effort from the edge of the penalty area after eight minutes and set up Olivier Giroud for Arsenal's second after 15. Any lingering doubts that the Former Real Madrid player was worth the 43 million pounds ($60 million) that Arsene Wenger paid for him in August were swept away in a magical first-half display of precision passing, great movement and feints, and Aaron Ramsey played his full part as the sorcerer's apprentice. Wenger said he could not remember the last time his side, who lead the Premier League by two points, had played as well as they did in the first 45 minutes

Daily Star reports that the Gunners are ready to bid £20m to get their hands on Bayer Leverkusen's Lars Bender as Manager Arsene Wenger continues his belief in Vorsprung durch Technik. Having steadily strengthened his squad with Germans in recent seasons, Wenger is desperate to sign the 24-year-old Bender in the New Year. According to the Star Bender comes with the recommendation of Arsenal's latest German recruit Mesut Ozil and the Gunners are therefore primed to table a £20m bid at the start of next year. Apparently they have already had one bid of £18.5m rejected by Leverkusen but Wenger refuses to give up. It's reported that the German club are relaxed about the matter and, having sold Andre Schurrle to Chelsea and Dani Carvajal to Real Madrid in the summer, they don't need the money and therefore might try and spark a bidding war. The Star claims the midfielder is "also admired" by Manchester United who are looking to strengthen their midfield to stave off the possibility of RELEGATION to the Cham ...
Realsport-InfoMadrid 'crisis' after derby setback Mon 30 Sep 2013 . Message Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 win at the Bernabeu on Saturday has plunged Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid into crisis -- at least, according to the Spanish media. Both Madrid-leaning sports papers featured a puzzled-looking Ancelotti on their covers on Monday. AS headlined: 'Ancelotti’s made a mess', while Marca asked: “Where do we start, Carlo?” and listed what it said were the Italian’s recent mistakes. Problems identified by both papers, just 100 days into Ancelotti’s reign at the Bernabeu, include not starting Luka Modric against Atletico, leaving out Dani Carvajal and playing Fabio Coentrao, some “baffling” substitutions, an over-reliance on Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale’s stuttering start, the surprise sale of Mesut Ozil, and the embarrassment of losing a second consecutive Madrid derbi to their poorer rivals. Much discontent has focused on Ancelotti’s persistence with the out-of-form Karim Benzema up front. AS ...

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho made attempts for three of his Former Real Madrid players last summer, it has been revealed. Spanish transfer experts Fichajes.net say Mourinho made attempts for Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Fabio Coentrao. Chelsea's move for Ozil came in the final week of the summer market, with Real already in the middle of negotiations with Arsenal ahead of selling the Germany international. An attempt for Khedira was made earlier in the Transfer Window, but like Manchester United, they were given short shrift by Real. Mourinho also made a personal request for Coentrao, but that fizzled out to nothing with Chelsea chiefs pointing out Ryan Bertrand and Patrick van Aanholt being behind England left-back Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has hit out at Real Madrid over their claims regarding new teammate Mesut Ozil. Real president Florentino Perez defended the £42.5million transfer last week by claiming the German asked to leave because "he couldn't handle the pressure at Madrid." But fellow midfielder Cazorla insists nothing could be further from the truth, however. "No, I don't think that," he told Sphera Sports. "He was at Real Madrid for three years and he showed his quality there. "I don't know why he has left Madrid, but I am sure that pressure wasn't the reason. "Mesut has played in big games and he has always turned up. "I think he left for other, more personal reasons, and not because of the pressure he was under."

Sunderland AFC 1-3 Arsenal Aaron Ramsey continued his excellent start the season as his double helped Arsenal to a 3-1 away win at Sunderland on Saturday. The Welshman took centre stage after a Craig Gardner penalty had cancelled out Olivier Giroud's first-half opener. Frenchman Giroud became only the eighth player to score in the opening four games of a Barclays Premier League campaign, and his goal at the Stadium of Light is the first time he has netted outside of London for Arsenal. Mesut Ozil was particularly impressive on his debut following his move from Real Madrid, providing the assist for Giroud as Arsenal led at half-time before Gardner's leveller in the 48th minute. But Arsene Wenger's side secured the points when Ramey volleyed home from Carl Jenkinson's centre before he added his second with 15 minutes remaining. Arsenal handed a debut to deadline-day signing Ozil, while Santi Cazorla missed the trip to Wearside. Per Mertesacker was also absent through illness, so Bacary Sagna moved to centre ...
