We need to remember that, while we have a decent starting 11, we don't have a deep squad. Obviously Ozil is more than just a squad player. He's very likely to push the likes of Arteta and even now Flamini down the pecking order. But for the sake of squad depth, that's actually a good thing. It means we actually have high quality backup we can rely on.

More importantly, Wenger can now go a lot easier on Wilshere now, especially given his current injury record.

our starting 11 could look really good with him even with all the injuries.
Sagna Kos. Per. Gibbs


Walcott Ozil Cazorla


Rotation available when fit.
Jens./Sagna...RB....Per/Kos/V er.....CB...Nacho/Gibbs/Ver...L B (Need one more CB)
Wilshire/Rosicky/Ramsey/Ozil/ Cazorla/Arteta/Diaby....(CMs)
Walcott/Podolski/Giroud/Sanog o/Ox/Cazorla/Ozil..(ST/Wingers )
Podolski, Walcott and now Sanogo(I hope he is quality) could play a few games leading the attack too in case Giroud cant. so, not too bothered with the lack of a new striker

Ryo and Frimpong can get some games in the midfield and wings too.
Looking at that list if it wasnt for the injuries Arsenal really have a good(small), but good squad. Maybe Ozil wasnt a priority, but its still nice to see some intent from the Club

Injuries are the only thing that could mar our season.

"Injuries are the only thing that could mar our season."

As they always do and seem to be doing a good job of this season as well.

We REALLY need to figure something out when it comes to injuries.

I hope is true!
We got a New KEEPER on loan!
Need a CB!
We got Flamini as a CDM!
Anything else is the Icing on the cake!

Fantastic buy for Arsenal. Won't turn them into title contenders far from it, but is a top quality player the likes of which Arsenal haven't bought before.

Spent the big dosh and got the world class required.

Shame on Man United for not competing for him.

I think you're wrong. This will bring us closer to the title as long as we will be kept injury free. When Fabregas played alongside Adebayor he made him a natural goal scorer.

With Ozil providing assists (he is rated the player with the most assists in the world) to Giroud I think it will make him a better player thus creating more goals and taking us possibly to the top 2. With a combination of Wilshere - Ozil - Cazorla and Ramsey this will create a very creative midfield. The only thing that bothers me is the defense, its very injury prone and that will be a problem.

Ozil is without doubt a brilliant player but by himself Arsenal aren't going to be title contenders. Arsenal needed more than one player, but it's a start I guess.

You yourself recognise how poor your defence can be to be honest and you still don't precisely have the greatest strikers. You still lack a true top class striker up front.

Ozil has improved the side but if you think that'll now make you contenders looking at the depth of City Chelsea and United 's squads then you may be in for a shock.

I guess we will have to wait until Christmas. If Giroud doesn't score goals, gets injured (he's had a brilliant start to the season, btw), then I believe Wenger will purchase somebody in January. Giroud has potential, especially when he gets the service he needs as a striker. Don't knock him out just yet.
