We do dominate most games don't we? He's bizaarely underappreciated at Arsenal. They are more focused on what he cant do rather than just appreciate his creative genius. And who are those that cover him at Germany that he doesn't have at Arsenal? Why not just admit the German players are better than the Arsenal ones? A player plays much better with better players around him especially one who relies on his on-the-ball ability rather than workhorse(ry). Remember too, that he was the creative hub in Jose's Madrid team, so I don't have an awful lot to say here. Maybe the young Messi, but the Messi I have watched in the last few years is pretty much a poor man's Ozil when it comes to defending.
