Mesut Özil has created more chances (80) than David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne put together (71) in the Premier League this season.

Ozil has more assists (16) than Silva, Mata, Coutinho, Fabregas and Hazard combined (15)

Being compared to Bergkamp. Needs a league title or two before we start bandying about that sort of comparison imo.

Maybe, but I think it's a little harsh. You need to compare the players individually if your goal is to in fact make a comparison.

Bergkamp had a team with Vieira, Pires, Henry etc... I don't think Ozil has quite the same back-up.

True, but it's about the way players are remembered, really, isn't it? Özil has won the World Cup and is proving himself as an exceptional player every week now, but Bergkamp won three league titles with Arsenal and will always be associated with success. History won't be so kind to Özil if all we get out of his era are a couple of FA Cups. Fabregas was brilliant for us but he's basically an emblem of failure, as the crown jewel in a team that couldn't win jack shit (even Chelsea fans may come to remember him more fondly for the trophies he helped them win last season).

And poor Jack still hasn't won anything worth talking about. Still, the injuries don't help.

Thanks for this unusual message.
He seems to forget he won the greatest domestic cup in the world...twice, and called Tottenham 'shit' on a megaphone. The man is a success, a true Arsenal legend.

He'd be pushing 30. I can't see them being interested.

Yeah, I was correcting Blue Bee who specifically said he was 28!
Pagnell said he was 30 in 2 years. I took an educated guess at his age.

Even 27 shocks me. It doesn't seem long ago I was disappointed at his lack of impact in the latter stages of the European u21 tournament for Germany. His big game presence is still questionable.

I didn't think he was quite as "old" as 27 either.

Still, top quality player.
