Almost 4000 fans voted on our poll for player of the season. The winner is......


By 1970’s Gooner

Since the season was getting near the end we decided a few days ago to run a poll as to who was Arsenal’s player of the season.

We gave a choice out of 12 players altogether having left out a few obvious ones like Rosicky, Senderos and… Eboue.

The response was overwhelmingly beyond our expectations. There are usually 1000 or so votes on the polls we run on this site but this time there were nearly 4000 (at the time of writing)!

If you assume that only a fraction of all visitors actually do bother to vote then it gives you an indication of the kind of traffic Arsenal Analysis has managed to accumulate during this season.

As you can see only five players amassed any decent number of votes. These were in descending order as follows:

5. Mathieu Flamini (191 votes, 5%)

I had him as the second best Arsenal player this season but obviously a lot of fans turned their back on him as he did to them.

However he was Arsenal’s most consistent player and hasn't had a single bad game all year. Not only has he been defensively brilliant he seemed to be much sharper and quicker on the ball and a technically more skillful player.

He ran a thousand miles more than his colleagues, swept up in front of the defence at dangerous moments and also went forward when required.

Pity he will be doing it for AC Milan next season….

4. Emmanuel Adebayor (577 votes, 14%)

Ade had his best season for Arsenal so far. He bagged 24 goals and his admirers point out his heading ability, which was badly missing in previous campaigns and his capacity to lead the line on his own enabling the use of a Plan B that has also been missing from Wenger’s previous Arsenal versions.

I personally feel he will improve further next season as he has shown that he is capable of taking on board lessons learned as he has done since his arrival at Arsenal.

3. Bacary Sagna (678 votes, 17%)

Sagna looked right from the beginning as a typical Wenger player excelling in that position and rightly picked in the Premier League’s best 11.


Strong and tenacious in the tackle but more importantly with excellent positional awareness.

He will be Arsenal’s right back for years to come.

2. Gael Clichy (997 votes, 25%)

What a revelation this season. A consistent performer at the top of his game putting in top quality defending coupled with offensive forays and penetration on the wing.


Simply no other left back can match him in both areas of his play. If he can concentrate a little bit more during games then he will be the complete full back.

1. Cesc Fabregas (1284 votes, 32.5%)

It is generally accepted that outstanding midfielders need to posses a number of attributes on top of fitness: technique, ball skills, tackling, retaining possession, distribution, shooting and scoring as well.


Fabregas has displayed all the above in abundance this season; his best ever for Arsenal…so far and that is why you and of course myself voted for him as Arsenal’s player of the season.

He truly deserves it.

Who is Arsenal's player of the season?

Fabregas 1284, 32.5%
Clichy 997, 25%
Sagna 678, 17%
Adebayor 577, 14%
Flamini 191, 5%
Hleb 63, 1.5%
Walcott 55, 1%
Eduardo 53, 1%
Gallas 15
Toure 14
Almunia 14
Van Persie 8

Total votes cast: 3949 (at the time of writing)


Thanks to all of you for supporting Arsenal Analysis and for taking part in the poll.

Cesc truly deserves it. A fantastic season from a fantastic player. And he will get better....

Cesc obviously top but I would have had sagna second and clichy third.

Thanks AA

You deserve all the traffic you get 1970's. Your site is one of the best around mate.

It's little wonder you got 4000 votes.

Its a tough call Cesc was outstanding and added goals to his game. Sagna came in and did a great job and we missed his grit at the end of the season. Clichy was one of the most consistent performers, just hope the lad can score his first goal soon!

As for Ade think he deserves to be in the top two, played for most of the season up front alone and has scored some great goals!Gets a bit too much unescessary flack!

Flamini - he said art of his decision to move to Milan is the fact that Arsenal didn;t win anything thi season. Well, look at the current Serie AA table and you'll find AC Milan in fifth place two points from Fiorentina with one game to play. Dear Mathieu will not play in CL next season while Arsenal will.
Adebayor - I agree he improved a lot however he has a great deal in losing the title. Just look at the game at Old trafford, Ade had 3-4 chances to score which would have killed the game and give us the title. He missed very simple chances in a lot of crucial games (Milan at home is another example).
