Gervinho: Personally I would have preferred to see his team-mate Eden Hazard playing for the Gunners next season but hey, sometimes you gotta settle for that outlet store 'On Sale' suit when you wanted that tailor made Armani. Gervinho is an interesting player nevertheless Ivorian Player of The Year and proven. He'll probably be an upgrade over Andrey Arshavin, though I don't see him breaking the starting lineup on a consistent basis.
Karim Benzema: Arsenal are in true need of that consistent big time striker. As previously stated, relying on the health of Robin Van Persie is kind of like letting Josef Fritzl babysit your kids, not the best thing to do. Benzema actually played very well last season scoring 26 goals in all competitions and is set to be replaced. Because that makes sense. Real Madrid are looking to bring in Kun Aguero or Fernando Llorente, meaning that either Benzema or Gonzalo Higuaín will have to inevitably make way. Benzema looks to be that man, and Arsenal should jump at the opportunity to sign him before someone else does.
Ryo Miyaichi: The 18 year old Japanese wonder kid has a lot of hype surrounding him, but we'll soon find out if it is all justified, and I'm sure it will be. Miyaichi dazzled coaches during his short loan stint at Feyenoord scoring three goals and assisting four times. Wenger told reporters that Miyaichi will play for Arsenal in the pre-season and stated "We will see if he is ready for us and ask for a work permit - we are hugely impressed.”
Kieran Gibbs: The promising young left-back can't seem to catch a break when it comes to injuries, he missed out on the Euro U21 Championship and although we didn't see much of Gibbs last season, what little we did of him, it was impressive, he looked confident and assured in the first team. Surely more opportunities will come to him.
Aaron Ramsey: An inspiring performance against Man Utd proved to the World that he was finally back. Then was appointed captain of his country; his future previously shrouded in doubt now once again looks bright and I'm sure that I am not the only one rooting for him.
Johan Djourou/Laurent Koscielny: Pretty simple here, one of these two as a back-up center back on the bench. Both played well last season. Djourou displayed that his game has grown and performed admirably last season. Koscielny also played very well considering his relative inexperience and first season in England. They are very good back-ups to have and depth is key part of success.
No need to mention Sébastien Squillaci here. He's Going, Going, Gone.
Carlos Vela/Marouane Chamakh: Vela is a player that I personally like, maybe because people tell me that I kind of look like him. But regardless of that he has shown his potential and now needs to be the time for him to realise that potential and put it to good use. Arguably one of the best natural finishers on the team, could be Arsenal's Javier Hernandez, the Mexican international needs to seize the opportunities he has this season as they could be his last with Arsenal. As with Chamakh a player that impressed early on and faded into the Managers doghouse towards the end of the season, needs to pick up where he left off or he could be on his way out also, especially if Arsenal are able to bring in a Benzema type player.
Łukasz Fabiański: Obviously Hasn't convinced the fans that call him 'Flappy-hands-ski' that he's Arsenal's number 1. But he does make for a solid number 2 keeper, who had been impressive with his performances before he suffered a season ending shoulder injury.
So there it is folks, your (somewhat hopeful) 2011-12 Arsenal team. With Arsene Wenger as close to the hot seat as you can get next season, the search and finding of trophies is as important an issue to Arsenal as The Royal Wedding was for your lady friends. Here's hoping to a long and happy marriage.
