    How?

    I'll give you Ozil has more potential since he is younger/taller. I don't understand the argument that Bremen is a better club than Gala. Gala plays just as much European football as Bremen. Bremen doesn't exactly kick the doors in. Germany is better overall of course, but I would not use that as the reasoning for Ozil>Turan. Turan is a younger Arshavin for me, only Turan has gained maturity much more quickly than Arshavin. Loads of clubs will miss out on Turan, but he will make an impact at whatever big club he moves to this summer. When I look at Ozil, I see EPL written all over him. He just doesn't strike me as a Liga player.

    ... in 2011. Would still make him cheaper this summer. He lacks form lately though. Still a promising and very talented player. But his consistency is questionable, thats why i favored Kroos (see above).

    I know. "Barca fan" is a key point and we could get him on discount as a sub for Xavi/Iniesta.

    Hm, he currently does play in the left MF for Leverkusen. But this is not his favoured position and he is definitely not a true winger. Its prolly still the position in a flat 442 (thats what Leverkusen plays), that fits him the most. Naturally he is either the AM or a CM in a 442 diamond or a CM in a 433 formation.

    For Leverkusen he indeed plays on the side, but he also likes to cut into the middle, behind the strikers and provide them with short, opening passes, or just takes a long shot from there (his specialty tbh). Otherwise he has a very good read of the game, good long passing and set pieces and good technique. While he can dribble, i wouldnt say that he is biased towards dribbling down the flank.

    To sum it up his style is fairly similar to that of Fabregas.

    Arda would crush Özil.

    Someone questions whether Guillem Laporta is a good player.

    I disagree but I may be biased as I dislike Arda.

    If you've seen Arda play then maybe you're right but what I've heard from him, he's very impressive. I saw him @ WC last time and he was really impressive for me.

    I've seen him a lot as I'm a fan of Turkey NT and I like Fenerbahce, he was indeed great at the EC in 2008. But I've always thought he lacks something, I'd say he's more suited to Italian leagues but I could be wrong.

    Arda is a c***. He has serious attitude problems. I think that that will hold him back. I don't like him.

    I don't like him but it doesn't make him bad player.He is not for us but he can play in Premier League.If I'd choose one of them I'd prefer Mesut Ozil.
