102: Was Özil a Failure at Arsenal? Plus Serie A Title Race & Dembele
Two guests for you this week, as I welcome Dave Jackson and Dougie Critchley to the show, to discuss Mesut Özil's impending departure from Arsenal, and the Italian title race plus Moussa Dembele's move to Atletico Madrid respectively. Dave and I talk over what Özil's signing meant to Arsenal, the myth and reality of his performances at the club, how fans fell out of love with him, and our issues with Arteta's treatment of him. Then Dougie and I chew over Milan-Juventus and Roma-Inter for clues to the destination of this season's Scudetto, have a chat about Conte's weirdly attacking tactics so far, and finish up with an analysis of what Moussa Dembele will bring to Atleti and the transfer's effects on the Spanish and French title races.
