The season is virtually over with one game left so I think the thread hasn't come to early. Just a time to reflect on the individuals who have done the best this season.

Player of the season?
Francesc Fàbregas
He is the player who is at the centre of everything the team does and hopefully it will continue for a long time. In the early stages of the season when he was scoring for fun he was the best player in the league. When the goals cooled off, he was still able to keep up the consistency of his general play to a high standard and continue to make the team tick from the centre of midfield. Last season he was considered to being one of the best young midfielders in football, where as as the season comes to a close, it is generally accepted that he is one of the best period. It kind of feels weird not giving this to a player who has scored 30 goals in one season, but that just goes to show how good Cesc has been.

Signing of the season?
Bacary Sagna
Considering most people were questioning Arsène for needing to sign a right sided full-back when the team already had Eboué and Hoyte, Sagna's rise to prominance only adds to Wenger's reputation of finding quality players in the market for reasonable prices and it also is an indication of how good Sagna has been. From going from a relatively unknown, to being crowned as the best right-back in the league Sagna has to be applauded. Whether it has been bombing down the right giving the team an attacking option, or making Kaka look ordinary in the San Siro, Sagna has been a revelation this season and cemented himself in the back four.

Most improved player of the season?
Emmanuel Adebayor
If you would have told me this time last season that Henry would be leaving and the player to replace him will be Adebayor then I would have probably asked for you to get your head checked. If you was being dead serious then I would have become slightly worried because all I saw was an irratic player who was limiting the team. I was going to say Flamini, but I think when someone goes from being third choice striker, to scoring 30 goals in one season then they have to be congratulated in some sense. It hasn't been easy for Adebayor this season. He has often found himself playing by himself and at times hasn't had the support from his team mates, and has at times been frustrating, but the fact is without his goals, the team wouldn't have been as successful as it has been in this campaign. Some of the quality of his qoals have been of top quality. The real question now is whether he is ready to go to the next step and really cement himself as a top striker.

Best goal scored?
Emmanuel Adebayor vs. Tottenham Hotspur, 15/9/07
Not much to say other than wow. From the touch to the finish, wow.

Best individual performance?
Francesc Fabregas vs. Milan, 4/3/08
This was the game where the whole team stepped up to the plate and took it to a Milan team that just wasn't capable of handling the pace of the game brought to team. Cesc was the centre of all that. In this game he was creating chances for others, tackling all over the pitch and even chipped in with a goal to complete the performance. Another reason why his performance was so important in this game was because he was up against Andrea Pirlo, and Cesc simply came out looking one hundred times better. The game against Liverpool at Anfield also springs to mind as well. The way in which he dominated Gerrard in that game only to have the papers say that they had an equal game pissed me off.

Best team performance?
vs. Milan, 4/3/08
I think the team played brilliantly against Liverpool at Anfield in November, and in the first half against Villa at Villa Park, however this is the famous victory that most people will remember when they reflect on the past season.

Player of the season? - Adebayor, 30 goals is incredible for someone who seemed so unco last season.
Signing of the season? - Sagna, very solid in the RB role and has simply been unstoppable (till his injury).
Most improved player of the season? - Adebayor, him scoring 30 goals really surprised me this season. didnt know he'd be capable of that.
Best goal scored? - Adebayor V Spurs, I've never jumped out of my seat before after a goal (apart from rvp's against charlton).
Best individual performance? - Fabregas v AC Milan, our side stepped out, but him scoring the first goal was really lifting for our side.
Best team performance? - Arsenal V Slavia Prague, we were on fire that night linking up very well with each other.
Worst player of the season? - Eboue, for someone who started many games he did the worst imo. i dont recall much good that he did this season, only a few assists.
Worst individual performance? - Jens Lehmann against Fulham & Blackburn, Horrible way to start the season.
Worst team performance? - Arsenal V Man UTD/Spurs, FA cup and Carling Cup, i've never seen us play so bad.

Bakari Sagna fitted in with ease to become the best right back not only for us but in the Premiership. Hardly a mistake when he played

Bakri Sagna (see above) :thmbup:

Matthieu Flamini - shame he is buggering off when we only just got to see the best of him.

Ade (vs Tottenham) & Flamini (vs Newcastle)

Best individual performance?

Emmanuel Eboue not totally his fault as he is a decent enough right back but played in right mid he totally sucked this season

Worst individual performance
Phillipe Senderos in the second leg against Liverpool two very poor pieces of defending that led to goals.

The FA Cup defeat at OT they all looked like they couldn't be f*cked.

He wasn't. It was Flamini, Diarra in the middle. Hleb and Rosicky out wide.

Nah Hleb played behind Adebayor and Eboue played on the right. The first half of that game was pure dominance, but the second half the team was on the backfoot.
