As the Premiership season has ended, I think that it is time to look back on maybe the best Premiership season so far. Also in the cup there were some great, most notably Man Utd's comeback against Aston Villa.
There have been so many great twists and turns in this season. The sale of Jaap Stam by Man Utd, the numerous managers that were sacked, Phil thomson doing so well as acting manager for Liverpool while Gerard Houllier. The stunning match at St James' Park between Newcastle and Man Utd and then the following week with Man Utd's great comeback against Spurs. Newcastle's great season where they went to Highbury and Elland Rd and won in controversial and exciting style. Arsenal's great run and fantastic football and winning the title at Old Trafford.
And how about all the great goals this season, Bergkamps' Vs Newcastle, Pires vs Villa, Sinclair for west ham, Beckhams vs West Ham and who could forget Zola's goal in the 4th round of the cup Vs Norwich that he dedicated to that boy.
Also this season was a season for records being broken like Arsenal going the whole season without losing away, scoring in every game and winning 13 games on the trot. Also personal achievements for van Nistelrooy who broke the Premiership record for scoring in consecutive games.

What do you people think of the season that has just passed, I think it has been great and would like to know your thoughts in the following categories.

Best Team
Worst Team
Player
Manager
Goal
Match
Defender
Midfielder
Striker
Goal keeper
Most exciting team
Most boring team
Newcomer
Veteran (32+)
Comeback
Bad Boy
and Young Player (under 21)
for me it would be

Obviously Arsenal
Obviously Leicester
Robert Pires
Bobby Robson
Gianfranco Zola vs Norwich
Newcastle Vs Man Utd
Rio Ferdinand
Robert Pires
Ruud van Nistelrooy
Carlo Cudicini
Man utd/ Arsenal
Liverpool
Jermaine Defoe
Alan Shearer
Man Utd vs Spurs at White Heart Lane
Alan Smith/ Danny Mills
Joe Cole

Look forward to reading your opinions.

Here are my picks :)

Best Team Arsenal
Worst Team Sunderland (Simply cuz they were no way near their potential!!)

Goal Bergkamp (vs Newcastle).. but since Zola's goal was an FA Cup goal.. I'd say Bergkamp vs. Leverkusen!!
Match Liverpool vs Man U 3-1 :D
Defender Hyypia
Midfielder Beckham
Striker Hasselbaink
Goal keeper Dudek
Most exciting team Arsenal
Most boring team Sunderland
Newcomer Van Nistelrooy
Veteran (32+) Bergkamp
Comeback Man U in the 5-3 win over Spurs
Bad Boy Leeds Utd!!! (the whole team.. well not all of them.. Bowyer & Mills stand out)
and Young Player (under 21) hmmmm close call between Joe Cole and Jermaine Defoe
