One of the biggest disappointments last season was our midfield, they failed to provide a consistent service to the front line and too often were unable to provide enough cover for the defence.
But in all fairness, there were times when the midfield was formidable, they were not always poor and were integral in our long mid-season unbeaten run.
Our last poll was about the worst player of last season and so in a change of mood I thought it would be good to run a positive poll and find out who we feel was our best midfielder over the last season.
Now, some of the polls I have run have been criticised for being poorly worded or leaving certain players out and I accept that criticism and have made the question as simple as it can be, who was the best midfielder for Arsenal last season?
As for who qualifies as a midfielder, I decided that the very best place to decide on that was the official Arsenal website here.
So if any of you disagree with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil or Ainsley Maitland-Niles being listed as a midfielder please do not take it up with but instead take up with the club, it is their list and not mine.
Poll closes at 23.59 UK time on the 12th June.
