Season Review Pt. 1 – Player Ratings

Almunia – 6.5
He clearly has improved but still cannot be trusted.

Fabianski – 6.0
I want to believe that he is better than what we saw vs. Chelsea. I want to say that the real Fabianski is more like the player who kept the clean sheet at Old Trafford.

Bacary Sagna – 6.5
We all know he can do better.

Emmanuel Eboue – 6.5
Remarkable turnaround after the traumatic booing episode.

William Gallas – 7.0
Even more remarkable than Eboue’s turnaround was how Gallas rebounded from a hellish first half of the season. Our best defender for a long spell before the Villarreal injury.

Kolo Toure – 6.0
He has tried his best but clearly that best isn’t enough.

Johan Djourou – 6.0
Not a bad season but hasn’t played well enough to give the manager a selection headache

Mikael Sivestre – 6.0
Injuries limited his season but also let us down in the Cup semi final

Gael Clichy – 5.5
He will want to sort himself out. Shocking!

Kieran Gibbs – 6.5
A revelation but also at fault for United’s goal that ruined our chances to reach the CL final.

Theo Walcott – 6.0
Consistency and better decision making please next term.

Cesc Fabregas – 6.0
Well under the required output.

Denilson – 6.0
Has worked as hard as any player this season but has not been the difference maker an almost ever-present should be.

Samir Nasri – 6.5
This is a player who was hand-picked by Wenger. He is capable of a more complete season.

Abou Diaby – 5.5
Abou needs to affirm his role as a footballer. Find your best position and perform well enough to force the manager to play you there.

Alex Song – 7.0
Another revelation. After a slow start, Song has become a top player for us.

Carlos Vela – 6.5
Clearly a player with a lot to offer but like Diaby, hasn’t forced the manager to keep him in the starting lineup.

Aaron Ramsey – 5.5
Cardiff stands out in my mind. Aaron was a ghost on the pitch. He must do better when he gets his chances, to jump ahead in the growing queue of midfielders.

Andrei Arshavin – 7.5
A virtual no-show vs. United at Old Trafford but a magician who’s proven that he can turn a game on his own. A proper pre-season will make all the difference.

Emmanuel Adebayor – 5.5
Villarreal should not be forgotten but we’ve got a very poor return from a player with much to prove.

Robin van Persie – 6.5
Very good for a torrid spell during which a brace at Stamford Bridge reminded everyone watching how dangerous he can be. The goals then dried up when we needed them most.

Nicklas Bendtner – 6.5
A turbulent and inconsistent season for Nik but he’s scored his share of goals this season. It’s just worrying how many more he should have scored.
