Vote now for Arsenalinsider Awards 2011-12

Hello and welcome to the inaugural Arsenalinsider Awards. Well, that’s probably how I would open proceedings if this were a glitzy bash packed with the good and the great from the world of the Arsenal and it was being screened live to an audience of millions.

Of course, in years to come this may well be the case but for now we will have to make do with the virtual platform provided here. Yes, we have decided to stage our very own awards ceremony based on the season just past.

A topsy-turvy season it has to be said: a campaign in which we get hit for eight at Old Trafford but still manage to spank Chelsea away by scoring five goals and smashing five past T******** at the Emirates after being 2-0 down.

We endured the misery of a drubbing in the San Siro and huge pride in almost pulling off a remarkable comeback with a 3-0 win in the return games. More hurt with painful defeats at Swansea, QPR and Blackburn – and the joy of the goal glut in which RVP found himself, my personal fave being the winner at Anfield.

Oh, and the slight matter of coming third in the league meaning we qualify for the Champions League unlike a certain other club from north London who missed out because fourth…well, fourth just ain’t going to be good enough, chums.

So without further ado, allow me to give you the categories we have come up with – that said, if you have another category we have missed please do tell.
Once you’ve had a chance to consider your answers please post them in comments and we’ll add up the votes and dish out the gongs (if we had any!).
