It's Fabregas Week on Arsenal.com as we celebrate the player who took over 60 per cent of the votes to claim top spot in our official Player of the Season poll.

The Spaniard's tenacious performances as the orchestrator of Arsenal's attacks made him a key figure throughout the 2006/07 campaign - something you, the voters, recognised in your droves.

But what do our Arsenal TV Online matchday team think of the 20-year-old? We asked commentators Dan Roebuck and Tim Peters, plus analysts Stewart Robson and Terry Neill, for their assessment of Cesc's performances in 2006/07.

Stewart Robson
"Cesc showed he is the ultimate midfield player last season. He has a great array of passes, he skillfully manipulates the ball to create space for himself and has fantastic awareness of where his team-mates are. As all great players tend to do, he makes a difficult game look very easy. Yet despite his passing and control of a game being his major attributes, he can also makes forward runs into the box. If he can start to convert the many chances he creates for himself he will become a truly great player."

Terry Neill
"Fabregas had a very good and consistent season, marred only by a lack of goals. This was possibly due to the absence of Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie, meaning he was getting tied down in midfield, stifling his ability to arrive late in the box. He certainly has the ability to be more prolific next season."

Dan Roebuck
"Fabregas was the heartbeat of the Arsenal side and deserved to win this Player of the Season award. He's a brilliant midfielder who not surprisingly topped the assists charts. In fairness, he didn't score as many times as his play merited but that will surely turn out to be the exception rather than the rule. He's never one to shirk responsibility and has combined continental technique with an English attitude to become a firm fans favourite."

Tim Peters
"Cesc was undeniably the Player of the Season in my book. For someone so young he has qualities that go far beyond his years and experience. He is such a clever player with that precious commodity of finding that extra second on the ball, a commodity only the greats possess. His movement is sensational combined with his reading of the game. The only facet he needs to improve on is his goalscoring, but I'm sure that will definitely come."
