There is no denying that Arsenal collapsed like a pack of cards at the end of the season and opinion appears to be split on who was to blame.
In my opinion, there are just three possible candidates, the board which includes Stan Kroenke, the manager, the players.
I suspect that for some Arsene Wenger or individual players can be held accountable but I think it would be unfair to target individual players and I cannot accept that Wenger is to blame, yes he left the club in a shambles but where do you draw the line with ex-employees? Should Ivan Gazidis also be included? Not for me, he and Wenger were not there when we sat third with the easiest run in and I firmly believe that the poll would not be credible to include anyone that could not have made a difference when it really mattered, which was the end of the season.
So, I am not including Arsene Wenger or Ivan Gazidis and I am also not going to single out any particular player because that would open up a can of worms too volatile to contain and anyway, it would be far too subjective and the poll would simply be too long.
I include Stan Kroenke as part of the board because he is the owner and the board answers to him.
What is included are four simple options and I feel they cover all the bases.
