When you think about it... Is Ozil going to help them overcome Chelsea, ManU or ManC? Probably not.Couldn't agree more. He is world class, there's no doubt about that, but Arsenal have failed to address a single problem they have.
A signing purely to appease the fans - and the fans are absolutely loving it.
Do they need him in order to overcome the weaker teams? Probably not.
He'll surely improve them. But I doubt he'll improve them as much as two appropriate £20m players might have done.
That said, whilst there's a good chance that Soldado and Lamela may prove to be more effective signings, there are more question marks over our buys. They haven't done anything yet and they don't have the pedigree of Ozil. We should be optimistic but not triumphal.
