Arsenal 2014-2015 Award Ceremony

Its another season of silverware for The Might Arsenal, something we have not been used to hear in the past 9 years. Success is a habit we are starting to get familiar with now. This post would summarize up over season in terms of award and who we should sign for the coming season to ensure we continue to improve

Best Goalkeeper
It's a tale of two halves for the Arsenal goalkeepers..Beginning of the season is was Szczesny who was the established number 1 keeper, but after his error at Southampton, Ospina became the trusted man between the post and hardly has put a foot wrong till the end of the season. Emiliano Martinez played about 6 games in the season but the award goes to David Ospina for Arsenal's Goalkeeper of The Year

Best Defender
I can narrow down the candidates for Arsenal's Best Defender of The Year to three of them, Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal. But the award for me goes to Laurent Koscielny. Monreal was one of our most improved player of the season while Bellerin was an unexpected success, yet both of this player could be replaced without much worries. What Koscielny brings to the squad game after game cant be replaced with another center back here. Strong, establish and always ready to dive in to cover in defensive partners with quick pace. He makes a huge difference every time he plays

Best Midfielder
The most crowded position in the team, but the easiest  winner to choose. When you score 25 goals in a single season playing from the wing, you are obviously the winner of Arsenal's Best Midfielder Alexis Sanchez. In what would be a close competition actually would see Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazrola come in second and third for me

Best Forward
This is another straightforward competition between Oliver Giroud and Danny Welback with Oliver Giroud bagging the award unchallenged.  Ruled out with an injury for almost 3 months, to come back on a scoring spree including against teams like City, United and Liverpool, Oliver Giroud has move up the grades this season and deserving of the Arsenal's Best Forward of The Season.

Best Signing
Sanchez, Debuchy. Chambers, Ospina, Welbeck and Gabriel. That is 6 signings in a single season, very un Arsene Wenger like. Yet again the is no questions raised on who deserves to be Arsenal's Best Signing of The Season, its Alexis Sanchez

Best Player
When you are the Best Midfielder and the Best signing of the season with 25 goals, its no rocket science to guess who is Arsenal's Best Player of The Season. Yes it's Alexis Sanchez once again

Best Young Player
Usually 23 years old is often considered as a "Young Footballer" and in that case, Francis Coquelin is Arsenal's Best Young Player of The Season. Went out on loan to Charlton only to be recall back to the team due to short of players. Picked up four booking in a row in his first 4 games of the season, and from there onwards there was no looking back for Le Coq. One of the biggest reason for Arsenal's success besides Alexis. Despite only playing half a season, the stats he ranked up was better than Matic, making him the best defensive midfielder in the league

Best Goal
This stunning strike by Ramsey against Galatasaray

Best Win of the Season
I wouldn't picked the FA Cup Quarter Final 1-0 win over United as the best win of the season because that would give them too much credit that they deserve. My pick would be the 2-0 away from home win against Manchester City. It was a perfect performance from all the players on the pitch. Often criticized for not being able to make his team play a different type of football, Wenger proved them wrong. He set his team up defensively solid with Ramsey and Le Coq staying discipline behind holding the line while Alexis and The Ox worked their socks off on the flanks, attacking and providing cover for the fullbacks. A superb display and a superb win

Players to Sign

Sign this 3 lads and we would challenge for the league next season!!!!!
