Lacazette wins Arsenal’s Player of the Season award

Alex Lacazette has been crowned Arsenal’s Player of the Season after securing 35 per cent of all cast votes.

The Frenchman has featured 46 times this season and been involved in 30 goals, scoring 18 and assisting his teammates on 12 occasions.

Highlights include big goals against Liverpool, Sp*rs, Chelsea, Napoli and last night’s brace against Valencia and a couple of noteworthy assists against Manchester United.

After a solid first season at the Emirates, the 27-year-old has become something of a favourite on the terraces this campaign. He may not be the club’s top scorer at the moment – striker partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to lead the way – but his work rate has really set him apart.

New boys Lucas Torreira and Bernd Leno have also impressed at times this season and Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny have caught the eye when they’ve played, but Lacazette does seem to be a worthy winner.

Having had a lengthy injury last season and then having had to deal with the disappointment of missing out on France’s World Cup winning squad, what he’s done this season has been very impressive.

Congratulations Alex. More of the same, please.

Safe to say the curse of the ‘number 9’ is broken!

Well done Alex!


thoroughly well deserved. he’s improved so much this season but surely you must be forgetting about park chu young!

Lord Bendnter

Now on to solving the curse of the rest of our squad numbers

It Is What It Is

Thoroughly deserved, seems to love the club. It’s also nice to have someone who can top bin a free kick now and then.
Will add a few more goals and assists in the next four games.

Owl faced Deeney's cojones

Laca deserved it. It could have been Rambo although he won it many times already.


Ramsey could have been a very good shout if he played more, especially earlier this season. But as it stands I think Laca is a worthy winner.


Not even close, well done mec!


He’s my player of the season. This season, he’s stepped up. 1) Protects the ball much better than Auba. This is important in both relieving pressure off the back line but also his distribution comes into play as he brings others around him into the game more effectively. 2) If you are truly world class, you make things happen for you. All this talk about a lack of ‘service’ to the forwards, you make your own service. Part of Auba’s problem is he waits for the ball to get to him. Fortunately we have several gifted players (Granit, Ozil) who… Read more »

I love how Laca receives the ball with his back to goal, and turns and hit it into the top nearside corner in one motion. He’s got a few goals out of nothing like that.

Kwame Ampadu Down

No arguments from me. Top lad.

Jason daniels

I agree and he wasn’t performing at his full potential. We need at least 4 good signings. 2 mid to defenders


Well deserved!


Never understood why these player of the season awards are meted out before the season ends when so much is yet to be decided for the season. PFA player of the season and now this.

Having said that, Alex Lacazette, fully deserved!

Zambian Gunner

A new contract please.


His present contract is till 2022 so no worries yet.


That’s good for us..


He really has played out of his skin this season. He has shown certain attributes that I never knew he had like his hold up play.

Hoping for him to end the season well.

A Different George

Much better player than I thought he was when he arrived. Knew he could score, but didn’t realize he was so good at hold-up play like a traditional number 9, or as a dribbler.


Ya. Just about right. A shining light in what has been a very tough season for us.


Well done Laca!

On a side note, it’s gonna get emotional on Sunday when we pay tribute to Cech and Rambo… ?


It was discussed during the summer that some players will develop under Unai and will stagnate. Laca is among the first category, as well as Holding Iwobi and Kola although the two later should improve more to be starters. Thoughts?


my favourite player by some distance. how could you not love him? i also greatly enjoy the friendship between those two

Naked Cygan

Desrved to get this award, very happy for him. One of the fee players with footballing brain, and domone who tries hard and gives a fk evey game. We have too many badta4ds in our side who just show up and performed whenever they like.


Well deserved. I think he’ll only get better too.


Funny to think Wenger always seemed to consider him every summer and then decide against it. Would have been good to get him 5 years ago

Rasheed Bedri



Don’t you just love it when a fan base comes together


Beast of a player. Most of the French players that played for us have always delivered. I think he is so underrated, which is a good think for us.

Don’t Forget

I’ll always remember those first two seasons we were linked with him and blogs was always underwhelmed with the prospect of bringing him in. I was too. Safe to say he’s turned out to be a great addition!
