      • nandini

  • summie

    Omg, his girlfriend is only with him for the money, that’s what I think. 😀

  • asal

    im muslim admiration is because mesut is muslim too.i really like him .i like his serious manner and i dont know that why he engaged with that divorced mother!!she is 7 year senior.imagine maybe he wants a mother not a wife!i dont think that they can carry on.mesut is young and maybe he will underestand his mistake soon.i wish that one day i can visit him but unfortunately im in iran.i dont know how but i wish.

    • Muslims are the best

      i am muslim too, i think like u i am from lebanon , he did a mistake she is amother 7 yrs older with 2 kids goshh!! she must be crazy her 2 husbands left her!!

  • rica

    I agree! He is always serious and has a chill attitude. OH! and dont forget good looking!

    He is engaged to her! She looks not bad but he should keep his mind open and not be SO SERIOUS IN A RELATIONSHIP YET. I wish them luck though.


  • Rina van Coller

    I never EVER watched soccer until the World Cup in South Africa. Coming from a rugby-mad culture in South Africa, I guess watching the Springboks took on the world was my favourite sport. But lo-and-behold! When the World Cup mania infected us all I started to watch some of the games on television while holidaying at a private game resort in Mpumalanga, South Africa. Needless to say Germany became my favourite team and my favourite player Mesut Ozil.

    Mesut has remarkable talent and has definitely set the World Cup alight with his riveting performance in South Africa. Needless to say I’m hooked on soccer for the first time in my life and all thanks to “wonder kid” Mesut.

    It seems that he’s always playing a starring role no matter which team the Germans are playing against, and to quote the German coach : “He plays a very high level; he can win the ball easily and then produce a telling shot. He is a playmaker and can produce some passes with split defences.”

    I think this talented young man is going to be one of the super stars not in the too distant future. Apart from his remarkable skill on the soccer field this classy young man seems to be a decent, fine young man – not throwing any tantrums like some soccer players do.

    Please convey my congratulations to Mesut for turning the tables (for me) against rugby once and for all (smile). Needless to say, from now on I will follow his promising career wherever he may go.

    I hope he and the German soccer team had a wonderful stay in our lovely country – Mesut you ROCK !!!

  • Naili

    Wow.. Amazing!! After world cup özil well known increased his fans.. Especialy the girls.. They might scream out loud for him.. 🙂
    keep it up!! \m/

  • Salman

    Well Ozil, you are a very good player, good luck to you for playing for Germany……..
    Wish I was able to showcase my football talent on a world stage or rise to world prominence in Physics just like Einstein and Newton did….

  • rajshikha singh shekhawat

    he is too good, i want to wish him good luck n always make ur nation proud by ur fantastic game ozil….., i hope in next fifa world cup germany will be the winner, my wishes is always with germany and you

  • happiness

  • Maria

    You have done everything no other person could, and I know how hard acomplishing something like that is, specially with your backround. Sounds great that you are turkish and your family has been supporting you. And you hold on to your culture, you don’t ignore it. I cannot explain how cool I think you are, you will always be my favourite player no matter what. I think about your skills all the time! You fulfilt your dream! I wish I did. Amazingness. Well, I’ll shut up now, good luck for you, you are a dream!!

  • Samira

    Yesterday now and forever our destiny is crossed our souls are linked.
    I know we will understand it someday…

    Seni Saklayacağım

    Seni saklayacağım inan
    Yazdıklarımda, çizdiklerimde
    Şarkılarımda, sözlerimde.

    Sen kalacaksın kimse bilmeyecek
    Ve kimseler görmeyecek seni,
    Yaşayacaksın gözlerimde.

    Sen göreceksin duyacaksın
    Parıldayan bir sevi sıcaklığı,
    Uyuyacak, uyanacaksın.

    Bakacaksın, benzemiyor
    Gelen günler geçenlere,

    Bir seviyi anlamak
    Bir yaşam harcamaktır,

    Seni yaşayacağım, anlatılmaz,
    Yaşayacağım gözlerimde;
    Gözlerimde saklayacağım.

    Bir gün, tam anlatmaya…
    Gözlerimi kapayacağım…


    Hatırlar mısın?
    Seninle zamanların en ölmezini yaşamıştık
    En büyük çemberini çizmiştik mutluluğun
    En geniş açılarına aşkı taşımıştık beraberce
    Hatırlar mısın?

    Yağmurlar yağdırmıştık en kurak mevsimlerde
    Boy boy umutlar yeşertmiştik içimizde
    O ne özlemlerdi gizlediğimiz
    Hatırlar mısın?

    Bir şarkımız vardı ki en içlisiydi şarkıların
    Şiirlerim vardı sana okurdum mısra mısra
    Ve sonra göz göze gelirdik uzun uzun
    Hatırlar mısın?

    Sen bensiz ben sensiz az mı ağladık
    Az mı kaçtık gölgesinden ayrılığın?
    Tanrıya kaç geceler avuç açtık
    Hatırlar mısın?

    Ve neden sonra sarardı yaprakları mutluluğun
    Ve neden bir bir kuruttuk umutları, özlemleri?
    Oysa bir ağaçtık dal dal çiçek açan, meyve veren
    Hatırlar mısın?

    Öyle ya bir kara tren ayırmaya yetti bizi
    Bir mendil bile sallayamadım ardından
    Öylece yalnız, öylece sensiz kaldım
    Hatırlar mısın?

    Şimdi boş vagonlarda arıyorum seni
    Anıları yaşıyorum yeni baştan
    Elimde değil seni hatırlıyorum
    bilmem ki sen de beni
    Hatırlar mısın?


    Beni Unutamazsın

    Beni unutamazsın bilirim, beni unutamazsın
    Denizin durgunluğu, gözlerimi
    Coşkunluğu, saçlarımı hatırlatır
    Kulaklarını tırmalar sesim, hayatından silemezsin
    Beni unutamazsın bilirim.
    Ve bir gün gelip, beni anlayacaksın.
    Oysa; vakit çoktan geçmiş olacak
    Ama sen yine de sözlerime aldırma.
    Gözlerin zamansız ıslanmasın.
    Çünkü, artık çocuk değilsin
    Güneşin nereden doğduğunu bilirsin
    Başka bir İstanbul olmadığını bilirsin
    Ve seni nasıl sevdiğimi bilirsin
    Ama gitmek istiyorsan, yine de sen bilirsin.


    Adimla Nasil Berabersem

    hacet yok hatırlatmasına seni hatıraların
    bir dakika bile çıkmıyorsun aklımdan
    koşar gibi yürüyüşün
    karanlıkta bir ışık gibi aydınlık gülüşün

    hacet yok hatırlatmasına seni hatıraların
    uzak uzak yıldızlarla çevrilmiş kainatın
    karanlık boşluklarında akıp giderken zaman

    adımla nasıl berabersem öylece beraberiz
    seninle her saat seninle her dakika seninle her saniye
    gönlümüz mutluluğa inanmış olmanın gururuyla rahat
    koltuğumuzun altında birer dinamit gibi kellemiz
    ve sonra her zaman her ölümlüye
    aynı şartlar altında kısmet olmıyan
    gerçekleri görmenin aydınlığı alınlarımızda

    hacet yok hatırlatmasına seni hatıraların
    sen bana kalbim kadar elim kadar yakınsın




    Sen benim gökyüzümdün, denizim, toprağımdın,
    Şimdi bir hatıra olamazsın belirsiz, uzak
    Biliyorsun bazı şeyler vardır elimizde olmayan
    İşte öyle imkansız birşey seni unutmak.

    Zannetme ki herşey bitti sevdiğim;
    Birgün yeşerecek şu sararmış yapraklar.
    Ve bundan sonra kim severse dünyada;
    Seni ve beni hatırlayacaklar


    Ayrılık Sevdaya Dahil

    ay ışığına batmış
    karabiber ağaçları
    gümüş tozu
    gecenin ırmağında yüzüyor zambaklar
    yaseminler unutulmuş
    tedirgin gülümser
    çünkü ayrılmanın da vahşi bir tadı var
    çünkü ayrılık da sevdâya dahil
    çünkü ayrılanlar hâlâ sevgili
    hiç bir anı tek başına yaşayamazlar
    her an ötekisiyle birlikte
    herşey onunla ilgili

    telaşlı karanlıkta yumuşak yarasalar
    gittikçe genişleyen
    yakılmış ot kokusu
    yıldızlar inanılmayacak bir irilikte
    yansımalar tutmuş bütün sâhili
    çünkü ayrılmanın da vahşi bir tadı var
    öyle vahşi bir tad ki dayanılır gibi değil
    çünkü ayrılık da sevdâya dahil
    çünkü ayrılanlar hâlâ sevgili..

    Usanmadan Seveceğiz Birbirimizi

    Hayır! Bu sana son şiirim olmayacak
    Ne de son şarkım… Asla!
    Yazacağım hergün yeniden
    Hergün bir öncekinden fazla…

    Bir gün seni anlatacağım
    Bir gün aşkını…
    Belki sonuncu şiirimde bulacağım
    En sıcak bakışını! …

    Sonra kendimden bahsedeceğim
    Mısralarda titreyeceğim ılık ılık.
    ‘Bu şarkı var ya!’ diyeceğim
    Anlayacaksın ve güleceksin ışık ışık…

    Z’ ye gelmeyeceğim hiç
    Hep A’ larda demirleyeceğim
    Sen özlemler açacaksın sabırsızlığında
    Bense fırtınalarda serinleyeceğim!

    Ve böyle sürüp gidecek aşkımız usanmadan
    Usanmadan seveceğiz birbirimizi
    Sen bana, ben sana doymadan
    Ancak ölüm yenebilecek ikimizi

    Mesut Ozil I love you so much but I just can not like your 28 year old soon to be wife with a son.

I hope God may bless you with a bright long future ahead of you. *Please always stay the way you are.* I love you to bits, Mwah!!!
