Arsenal still have one game left this season, the Europa League final against Chelsea in ten days time, and so it can be argued that these ratings are one game too early to be released but for me, this is the perfect time because you can judge who deserves to be in the starting line up based on their performances this season.
That is if you agree with my ratings of course and I am sure that there will be a few that will disagree passionately.
It would have been an eight if not for a couple of howlers this season and I know that all keepers make howlers, Lloris, de Gea even Allison have made bad errors, but they are part and parcel of the game and you get judged on them as well as your great games.
Been the keeper throughout our Europa League campaign and we are now in the final, his mistakes have been minimal and the only reason I have him as a seven is because I could not put him on the same as Leno who I believe has been slightly better for us.
Got injured and so it is difficult to mark him accurately but I am going to based on the games he did play until he got injured, and while some will argue that he was having his best season for a long time I recall how frustrated I used to get at the number of times he kept losing the ball
One of our better defenders but I did find him ponderous on occasions and too often he would give free kicks away in dangerous positions because of his heavy tackling, no problem with that if you actually win the ball.
I know that a lot of you will criticise Koscienly for his lack of leadership and also showing his age but in quite a few games he stood tall when all around him were falling apart, and if I am giving Sokratis a 7 then I have to go slightly higher with Koscielny because I feel he was that little bit better overall. Put it this way, I had more trust in Koscielny than Sokratis.
Sorry but I thought he had a poor season, he did start well but then went backwards very quickly, and it soon became very evident that he was not an Arsenal quality player and if I am being really honest, I think 3 is me being generous.
Just like Bellerin, he was long term injured but prior to that he was on fire and in fact, I am disappointed in myself for just rating him 7.5 because he deserves more, but that bloody injury means I cannot know if he would have continued being consistently one of our best defenders.
Just too slow now and it has shown too often, I know he has been injured as well but even so, he has declined and has basically become a bit of a passenger. Put it this way, I no longer consider him an Arsenal quality player and his performances justify my opinion on that.
Now, this is controversial but what can I say, I like him. Some of you will no doubt mark him down as our worst defenders and yes he has made some horrendous mistakes but despite the immense amount of criticism he put his head down and got on with it. In the last four games I thought he was our best defender, that takes courage and shows great character and he will improve next season.
In the few games he played for us he just was not good enough there is not much more I can say, I do not rate him and based on his performances for us I think even a 2 is being generous.
The lad is still on a learning curve and his inexperience showed when we did play him, which was not too often. I have high hopes for him but based on what I saw this season I can only give him a 3.
I fully expect that rating to upset some people but too often for me he had no end product when screaming down the wing, and his defensive qualities leave a lot to be desired. If he can get better with his passing and crossing then he could be a huge asset but on what he did this season I thought he was distinctly average.
I thought he was useless, to be honest, he maybe had one or two games that were decent but overall utterly woeful.
I don’t care what his reputation is or what he is capable of. All I can do is judge him on what he has done for us this season which is sweet FA, the most annoying thing is that he can be so much better because he has the talent, but where the hell was it because it was not on the field of play.
We missed him terribly when he got injured, yes he can be inconsistent but there is no way we would have collapsed the way we did in all those end of season games if he was playing, we certainly would have picked up enough points to finish top four and overall I thought he was one of our better players this season.
He has had a poor season that cannot be denied and this has nothing to do with what he earns, but based on his talent and when you are as skilled as what he is you simply must be doing better. He has let us down this season big time and he does not deserve more than a four in my opinion
Started great then went backwards but a lot of that is down to the English game and he will do better next season and overall I believe he did fairly well, he was certainly one of our better midfielders all things considered.
Could have had a better season but too often he let himself and us down, he can be great going forward but is not the best crosser of the ball and he has the energy to go and defend, but lacks that killer instinct. He is still a work in progress.
I thought he had a great season, all things considered, yes he ran around like a headless chicken but he really tried, he has adapted from Ligue 2 in France to the Premier League and he could be an awesome long term signing for us.
Just not good enough for me, yes he had the odd good game but how many mistakes can one player make and still keep his place in the team. I know that Xhaka is better than what he has shown this season, but until he shows it I will rate him accordingly.
Fantastic season, he did miss a few sitters but overall was clinical in front of the goal, held up play brilliantly when required and despite some early season wobbles ended up forming an awesome partnership with Aubameyang. Lacazette is the real deal.
This was really hard who I made my player of the season and I know that many go for Lacazette, but Aubameyang won the Golden Boot and you just cannot underestimate that achievement. Yes, you can argue that Lacazette made a ton of goals for Auba but what can I say, I make Aubameyang the better player this season because he did his job almost to perfection and that was to score the goals and he did exactly that.
Just no end product, he runs around full of energy but when it came to doing the basic job he was found wanting. I am not a great fan of Iwobi and I hope he proves me wrong next season but I doubt it.
So, my player of the season was Aubameyang and my worst players were Elneny and Jenkinson.
No doubt my ratings will not be universally agreed with, and I am interested to know where you disagree and why.
