    Inspired by Mr Bootcut’s thread.

    We’ve had so many dicks playing for us of late that the only condition is that they were a regular nightmare in the side (100+ appearances).

    You’re allowed up to 3 votes so that the poll has any purpose (Mustafi is a member of this elite 100-club).

    Condolences to each of Gabriel Paulista (46 apps), Gervais Yao Kouassi (‘Gervinho’) (46 apps) and Mohammed Elneny (45 apps and counting) who all miss out. Odd pattern eh?

    Don’t think Walcott/Giroud should be on the list due to output alone.

    Cech has to be one of the worst. Starting for a couple seasons and making mistakes every other week and every big game.

    Personally agree with Walcott but he drove a lot of people crazy and there’s space for 10 players so I added him to the final slot.

    Giroud 100% belongs on there. Think him and Almunia were two of the worst decisions Wenger ever made re. our playing squad. We spent years with two clowns in crucial positions constantly ruining everything.

    Hard to vote. Iwobi is a kid who’s finding his feet, guys like Bendtner/Senderos was never regular starters etc.

    Almunia and Eboue had very good patches. Can’t have Walcott and Giroud because they were actually very good considering everything.

    Putting Walcott and Giroud on the list is a bit of a joke.

    You would not hear an opposition praise the other guys on the list like Barca did to Theo. The guy was a huge force before his knee injuries, even though he was always a limited player he had many great games and changed the game from the bench several times, especially in big games.

    Giroud was the most frustrating player and the player who maybe held us back the most.

    From all the senior regular starters, he was probably the worst, despite him being cheap and chipping in with goals.

    Nah nah, can’t be Giroud. When you’ve had people like Cech, Gibbs, Mustafi etc being regulars, Giroud was much better.

    I’m harsh to Giroud but it’s unfair to say he was the worst, he scored goals and played good games. He just wasn’t good enough to be first choice, solid back up striker we relied on to be first choice.

    The answer is Almunia and if you vote any different you have an agenda.

    It's definitely Mustafi. As much as I was frustated when Giroud was a regular starter, he had some good patches and scored more than 100 goals for Arsenal, same goes for Walcott. Mustafi has literally been **** the whole time he's here.

    Poor list mate, most of these guys were never here to play important role for us.

    Biggest disappointments for me would be one of Xhaka/Mustafi, expensive players who played big part in our transition out of top 4.

    From cheap players, I think Denilson/Elneny were absolutely awful.

    You definitely miss Squillaci adn Chamakh on the list instead of Walcott and Giroud.

    Neither Squillaci or Chamakh have over 100 appearances for us.

    Typical of Say Yes to miss the obvious one out and the one i'd pick which is Gael Clichy. Never got slated the way his performances deserved. Pathetic full back.

    Quality wise Elneny is the worst player I've ever seen in Arsenal shirt.

    Xhaka should be on that list. Mustafi wins the vote all day long though.

    He was a good defender, but never knew what to do once he was out of his own half.

    Nani disagrees with the first half of that sentence. He was an abysmal defender.

    By that argument, Xhaka should be there too.

    That list is cringe lol can't stand Almunia, Denilson and Mustafi. Tough choice to pick one from those three but I think ill go with Almunia - such a dodgy GK.
