Welcome to my ninth FIFA 12 Player Ratings review article. So far, I've reviewed Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Manchester City, and plan to review AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus and Napoli later this week.
The 2010-11 season was not a kind one for the Gunners.
At one point, it seemed like the Gunners were on top of the world and could not be stopped: At the end of February, they were one point off of league leaders Manchester United, had just beaten Barcelona in the Champions League, were in the Carling Cup final vs minnows Birmingham City, and were still going strong in the FA Cup.
And then it all just fell apart. First came the League Cup loss to Birmingham City, which seemed to knock all self-belief out of the squad. Losses to Barcelona in the Champions League and Manchester United in the FA Cup over the span of four days compounded the team's misery, and knocked them out of two more competitions they had done very well in for the majority of the season.
Even the league challenge died terribly, with the team falling all the way down to fourth on some awful league form.
So what effect did this meltdown of epic proportions have on Arsenal's ratings?
Let's find out.
Note: Players rated below 70 are excluded.
