We've got the views of Jon Keen - board member of the Supporters' Trust.

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?

Marcus Hahnemann, as without him our “goals against” total would be even closer to Derby’s.


Who would you be glad to see the back of?

John Oster – only because he’s been made a scapegoat for no good reason.


What was your best performance?

It has to be beating Liverpool at the Madejski in December. Definitely a Reading victory rather than a Liverpool defeat.


And the worst?

Where do you start in a season littered with them?


Who have been your toughest opponents?

Arsenal. I came away feeling like I’d watched a Harlem Globetrotters-style exhibition match.


Best player faced?

Benjani. Everything he tried came off.


Funniest/most bizarre moment of the season?

Two once-in-a lifetime matches in three months were bizarre, losing 7-4 at Pompey and 6-4 at Spurs.


Your perfect, but realistic signing?

Jimmy Bullard, now he's fit again. He’s a Steve Coppell type of player – hard-working, honest and committed.


Any reasons to be cheerful going into next season?

The management must surely learn their lesson and not be so conservative in making signings.


Reasons to be gloomy?

Possibly 46. Our famous team spirit is coming apart at the seams.


Who will you support in Euro 2008?

Czech Republic. Matejovsky has shown some superb touches.


Overall assessment of your manager?

I still consider him the English Wenger, but his loyalty doesn’t seem to be quite such an asset when the going gets tough.


And overall assessment of your team?

The 2006 Championship team is starting to get past it’s sell-by date. Beating Liverpool and taking a point at Old Trafford is all very well but if you surrender meekly in matches like Bolton and Fulham there are problems.
