Because Arsenal's squad is far too large to write up a summary on each player ahead of the new season, I'll instead limit my analysis of each player to just one sentence:
1. Wojciech Szczesny: Unbeatable on his day but shaky at his worst, Szczesny is the future of goalkeeping and will continue his road to the top this season.
2. Abou Diaby: He's got legs of glass, but when he's fit Diaby is just as good of a midfielder as any.
3. Bacary Sagna: Suffered two nasty leg breaks last season, but when he was fit he proved to be an integral part of the squad; Arsenal looked significantly better both in attack and defense when Sagna played, so let's hope he stays fit for the entirety of 2012-13.
4. Per Mertesacker: Took some time getting used to the Premier League, but Mertesacker is a good third choice center back and will only improve with more match time.
5. Thomas Vermaelen: Most likely Arsenal's new captain, and rightfully so: "the Verminator" showed his faith to the club when signing a new contract in the middle of the mess last season, and although his defending is suspect at times he makes up for it with his contributions on attack.
6. Laurent Koscielny: By far and away Arsenal's most consistent and solid defender last season, Koscielny is one more great year away from being considered one of the best center backs in Europe.
7. Tomas Rosicky: Rosicky's renaissance last season was parallel to Arsenal's fantastic turnaround, and the creative little Czech will be looking to build on his wonderful 2011-12 campaign.
8. Mikel Arteta: The metronome of our midfield, Arteta is like Arsenal's Xavi: he keeps the play moving, orchestrating play from the midfield with everything from the simplest of short passes to a pinpoint through ball.
9. Park Chu-Young: One of the most head-scratching signings since Wenger took charge.
10. Robin Van Persie: If Arsenal somehow end up keeping him, there's not a doubt in my mind that they'll be challenging for the title this season.
11. Andre Santos: The epitome of a Brazilian left back: attacks like a left winger, but also defends like one.
12. Olivier Giroud: Arsenal fans can't wait to see the 2011-12 Ligue 1 top scorer play in red and white, and I've got a feeling he'll be a key player to the Gunners this season.
14. Theo Walcott: I only need one word for him: mercurial.
15. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: "The Ox" is the next big thing in English football, and although he's still only 18 (yes, 18!), 2012-13 could very well be his major breakout season.
16. Aaron Ramsey: Took a lot of stick this past season, but there's no doubting Ramsey's potential as the future of Arsenal's midfield.
17. Alex Song: Shaping up to be one of the best defensive midfielders in the league, Song's infamous lofted through-balls which got him 11 league assists last season will surely continue to terrorize defenders in 2012-13.
18. Sebastien Squillaci: When are we going to finally get rid of this guy?
19. Jack Wilshere: What scares me even more than his incredible potential is the fact that it will never be fulfilled due to a seemingly never-ending injury–let's hope Wilshere picks up right where he left off when he recovers.
20. Johan Djourou: Not as bad as people make him out to be, Djourou is a fine fourth-choice centre back.
21. Lukasz Fabianski: He's made it clear that he wants to leave this summer as he's fed up with being the backup keeper—which is understandable, but he hasn't been linked with any other club and it looks like he could be sticking around for another season.
22. Francis Coquelin: One of many Arsenal youngsters poised for a breakout season, Coquelin's versatility and ability in 2011-12 was impressive, so he'll be looking to force his way into the first team this season.
23. Andrei Arshavin: Not the most loved figure in North London, most fans will be hoping that Arshavin is headed toward the exit door at the Emirates soon, but even if he stays he'll serve as a good squad player.
24. Vito Mannone: When he's not on loan, Mannone usually makes some pretty comical errors in between the sticks for Arsenal, but Wenger must see something in him if he's still hung on to the Italian keeper for all these years.
25. Carl Jenkinson: A promising young right back who most fans, like myself, don't think is ready for the first team just yet.
26. Emmanuel Frimpong: When he's not fooling around on Twitter, Emmanuel Frimpong is a very bright defensive midfield prospect who deserves a loan spell at a smaller Premier League club once he's recovered from his second ACL tear.
27. Gervinho: Clearly fatigued by last season's Africa Cup of Nations, Gerivnho looked good before his international duty and will have to prove this season that he isn't a flop.
28. Kieran Gibbs: Hopefully the next Ashley Young (minus the money-grabbing), Gibbs is Arsenal's first-choice left back when fit and seems to improve with every game.
29. Marouane Chamakh: He'll probably be sold this summer, but I'm a firm believer that Chamakh would have continued his good form from the beginning of the 2010-11 season if it weren't for the breakout of Robin Van Persie.
31. Ryo Miyiachi: One of Arsenal's most exciting young players, I see Ryo getting another Premier League loan spell this season and impressing once again.
35. Kyle Bartley: After spending two years on loan at the club formerly known as Rangers, Bartley is probably the future of Arsenal's defense but for now will, in all likelihood, only get playing time in cup matches.
52. Nicklas Bendtner: Probably the most arrogant player ever to play for Arsenal, I'm surprised "The Greatest Striker in the World" hasn't moved on to another club this summer.
TBC Lukas Podolski: Like Giroud, Podolski is a player who excites the fans and will surely be key to Arsenal's push for silverware this season.
