We've got the views of lifelong supporter Matt Cutler.

But how was it for you? Comment at the bottom of this article and have your say on your team's season.


Who has been your best player this season?

Ashley Young. Turned heads when acquired for record fee but has been a great success.


Who would you be glad to see the back of?

Patrik Berger. Out of his prime a few seasons ago. A turncoat is not welcome.


What was your best performance?

4-4 at Chelsea. Despite going a man down we showed the resilience to come from behind and steal a draw.


And the worst?

4-0 at Man Utd. We were embarrassed; United eased through our defence.


Who have been your toughest opponents?

Man Utd. We were defeated comprehensively in all fixtures.


Best player faced?

Cristiano Ronaldo.


Funniest/most bizarre moment of the season?

John Carew scoring the worst Premier League hat-trick of all time against a struggling Newcastle.


Your perfect, but realistic signing?

Jimmy Bullard. If we fail to hold on to Gareth Barry, the midfielder would be the perfect replacement.


Any reasons to be cheerful going into next season?

We are still in a transition period under Martin O’Neill and expect to do even better next season.


Reasons to be gloomy?

Gareth Barry seems destined to leave. If he does, it will be a sad day for all the fans.


Who will you support in Euro 2008?



With only Wilfred Bouma playing, it has to be the Netherlands.

Overall assessment of your manager?

How can you not like O’Neill? He talks sense, tells it how it is and has a proven record of signing players.


And overall assessment of your team?

A promising and youthful squad but we still lack depth. A big-money signing in the summer that will complement our youthful attack will show we mean business next season.
