Two trophies won and second place in the league. Nothing to sneeze at really. The only reason it feels flat is the manner of the exit from the Champions League Semi Final. It is not easy to come back from an 8-0 drubbing to beat the Premier League Champions in the F.A.Cup.
That we came back is testament to the resolute nature of the squad. That is the second time that I have been pummelled on the European stage by Chelsea. I am picking that next season our meetings with Chelsea will be fiercely contested.
Champions League Final
Chelsea lose on penalties to Real Madrid.
I can’t say I feel bad that Chelsea lost. They haven’t qualified for next season either.
PFA Player of Year Award
“Tan” deserved the award. His absence in the Champions League Semi Final proved decisive.
Hero came in second place, despite playing eight less games than the third placed player.
Team of the Year
Four players in the team of the year is a little disappointing.
Premier League Summary
Confirming the result of the league, in case it was uncertain.
For those who are interested, here are the stats for the active first team players – excluding players on loan.
Player of the Year
Fittingly “Hero” was the player of the year.
Team of the Season
No real surprises, apart from Kevster having played only one game. Really??
A season of highs and lows. We only filed to score in one game, and managed some big wins. However we were porous at times which cost us.
Capital One Cup
The semifinal and final were very one sided affairs. We got there on penalties twice however.
We finally advanced past Arsenal in a competition, although it took a replay to do so.
We played well. Right up until the 8-0 drubbing at the hand of Chelsea.
