End of Season Review: Blog #14

Our First Full Season by Kai Chappell, Sports Editor.

Hello! I’m back for a special blog. We’ve taken a bit of a blogging break, because I’ve been so swamped with the exams! But this was a promised one where we review the season as a whole in detail. This week you’ve got contributions from myself, Andrew, Steve, Lewis and Harry as we look back on a tremendous season form our local sides. Get in touch with your responses to these questions:

eastb

Francois Gabbidon searches for possession against Eastbourne

Q. What was your favourite moment of the season?

A. It has to be, apart from the obvious Leicester winning the title, watching the run of Sutton Common Rovers in the FA Vase. The specific moment that really did it for me was the windy night in Eastbourne, where Rovers were down and out, and turned it around – to come from 2-0 down and win 3-2 very late on, was immense. Potentially the best match I watched this season.

What was your least favourite moment of the season?

This is quite near the end of the season and, apart from Chelsea’s demise, was seeing Corinthian-Casuals having three points deducted just before the final day of the season, which ruled out their chances of promotion. It was heart breaking to see all of that hard work completely ruined by some small errors.

Best Clubs of the Season

3. West Ham United (Premier League) – West Ham get my third placed vote here – an absolutely stunning story to round off their time at Upton Park. Qualifying for Europe, albeit with a bit of help from Manchester United, the Hammers were a force to be reckoned with. 7th place is a respectable finish going into next season at their new 60,000 seater stadium.

2. Sutton United (Vanarama National League South) – The U’s lost just four league games this season, and between November 7th and the end of the season lost just one league game. They weren’t favourites to get promoted – I doubted Paul Doswell’s ambition when he said at the beginning of the season that they could do it, but they did. Then again, I thought Leicester would finish 19th

LCFC

The Foxes were crowned champions for the first time

1. Leicester City (Premier League) – It goes without saying why they’re my top team. The Foxes have completely changed the Premier League for good and proved that in football, anything could happen. As I mentioned, I tipped them to go down without a fight this season, yet it was Chelsea that were closer to relegation! Their triumph was amazing, but we need to see how they move forward with it.

Worst Clubs of the Season

3. Chelsea (Premier League) – What a disappointment. It felt quite similar to the season where, having won the Champions League in May, we were demoted to the Europa League just six months later. It was all a crazy mess from Day 1, with the arguments with Eva and the obvious fall out within the squad. Credit to Guus Hiddink for coming in and stabling the ship, but some fans who believed Chelsea could qualify for Europe must have been dreaming. Looks like Antonio Conte has a huge task to win the fans back over.

Ryan was one of Fleetwood’s best players in 2015-16

2. Fleetwood Town (Sky Bet League 1) – Another astonishing disappointment. Given what happened this season with a huge exodus of key first team players last summer, you’d have expected replacements of a similar quality. Instead, players of a worse quality were brought in and it showed, as we only scraped survival on the last day. One of the stars of the season was Jimmy Ryan (right), and who knows if he’ll be here next season? Another exodus has already begun, but here’s hoping that Mr Pressley has a plan to push for the top six next season – it’s all the Cod Army want.

1. Aston Villa (Premier League) – A club with such a rich history, it all goes down the toilet when for some reason you can only muster up 17 points in a football season where 114 points were possible. Villa dropped a whopping 97 points this season. The club need to pull their socks up and try to return, but you can never tell – it may well be that the Championship is where they belong.

Premier League XI of the Season

4-1-3-2 formation

GK: Petr Cech (Arsenal) – deserving of the Golden Glove, the ex-Chelsea star made the right choice for himself in moving to Arsenal. The club were silly to let him go as, even in this time in his career, he’s still one of the Premier League’s best goalkeepers.

RB: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) – I didn’t see much of Bellerin which disappointed me. He is incredibly consistent and bursting with potential, and many of this season’s right backs haven’t surpassed Bellerin’s quality.

CB: Wes Morgan (Leicester City) – Of course, this team will have a few players from the Foxes, but Wes Morgan really stood out. His performances showed his strength, ability and desire to take risks for his team. You couldn’t ask for much better at the heart of your defence.

CB: Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham) – I hate to put Spurs players in here but this man also had a stellar
season. He played incredibly well and was almost a leader from the back – absolutely incredible.

LB: Aaron Cresswell (West Ham) – He is, for me, an England left-back. He is consistently playing to the best of his ability and, at West Ham, has not been struggling with injury. He put in incredible shifts this season, making 37 league appearances. An expert defender.

CDM: Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) – I would play Ozil defensively because he can put in a shift at either end. He was omitted from the PFA Team of the Year but fully deserves to be in mine after a season where he really shone.

LM: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) – Another Fox who played incredibly well this season. He won many many awards and deserved them, his attacking play saw him climb up the ranks and he could potentially demand a £30m+ transfer fee should he leave this summer.

CM: Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City) – Again, omitted from the Team of the Year but fully deserving of a place. He was a mastermind for Leicester’s title win and his name has been brushed under the carpet a bit – he deserves to be in there.

RM: Dele Alli (Tottenham) – Young and English – most international football fans will be dancing with glee at this name. Alli has really shown that young players should be given a chance in the league as he came out and stood tall above the experienced midfielders. Eden Hazard, Yaya Toure, Raheem Sterling, bow down to your newest bit of competition.

ST: Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – I don’t really need to explain this one, do I? As a Fleetwood fan too – you couldn’t have a team without Jamie Vardy.

ST: Harry Kane (Tottenham) – The Golden Boot winner, and an incredibly consistent star of the show. Kane is arguably the best English striker at the moment, and a good time to be doing that.

Disappointing Player of the Season

Lambert has 11 England caps.

Lambert has 11 England caps.

Rickie Lambert (West Bromwich Albion) – Rickie Lambert might have aged a bit, but at Southampton there’s no denying he was an absolute star and it earned him England caps. Then he left, and his career stalled. Something tells me we may well see him in the Championship very soon, where most of the Premier League’s better strikers end up on loan.

Local XI of the Season

GK: Mark Smith (Hampton and Richmond) – Consistently high level of performance throughout the season, and fully deserving of credit in their title-winning season.

RB: Nedum Onuoha (QPR) – Another poor season for the club, but sometimes an individual can still shine despite a poor season, and this is the case for Nedum. A strong and versatile right-back, each performance of his saw him put the best of effort in and in many cases, it paid off.

CB: Barry Fuller (AFC Wimbledon) – Club captain, leading from the back, and arguably one of the best defenders in the League, Fuller has helped the Dons to a play-off place. He has played well at the back and is a stand out defender from our local sides.

CB: George Wells (Kingstonian) – What a player. He has played in many games this season, and Kingstonian had played brilliantly all season. 53 appearances show that the club consistently had faith in him and he’s a very, very good defender.

LB: Scott Dann (Crystal Palace) – I’ve moved him out to the left and although the Eagles haven’t had the best season, he has always put in a good shift and deserves a place in the team.

WillianRM: Willian (Chelsea) – the only good thing this season was Willian for Chelsea – what a star. His freedom on the ball meant he deserved the Club Player of the Year award, but it wasn’t hard to stand out of Chelsea’s squad this season.

CM: Matt Farrell (Epsom and Ewell) – in what was a very good season for the club, Farrell’s 11 goals in 46 games this season, he was a consistent performer, helping out in many parts of the pitch.

CM: Sam Blowers (Sutton CR) – Having watched him play this season, I was blown (pun intended) away by his ability and comfort with the ball. Again, domestically not a great season but he still managed to stand out.

LM: Tom Bolarinwa (Sutton Utd) – A star in the title winning squad. His speed and pace down the wing made him an asset to the United squad and he provided goals and assists which were pivotal throughout the season.

ST: Kyle Hough (Epsom and Ewell) – Top goalscorer, and club player of the year and an all-round star – what a wonderful player and he deserves this – he could definitely play professionally!

ST: Francois Gabbidon (Sutton CR) – Arguably biased having done all I could to get him on the show and support the club but Francois’ ability hasn’t gone unnoticed, and he has played well all season, even attracting international interest. Maybe a cap for Sierra Leone…?

Local Player of the Season

 

Lyle Taylor (AFC Wimbledon). A brilliant signing and he performed brilliantly all season, and fired the Dons to the play-offs. What would they have done without him?!

Best Wandsworth Radio Sport Moment of the Season

Our first Saturday show going off without a hitch! We’ve loved having Alex Mehra read our news as well…

Best Sports Show of the Year

Once we got it going, our Christmas Special was the best show of my year. 4 and a half hours of brilliant content and it was our first show with guest host Stuart Searle. A brilliant way to round off 2015.

Favourite Co-Host of the Season

Hands down, it would have to be former Head of Sport Martin Harris. Each show was fantastic working with him and he has been missed! Hopefully he’ll be back as a special guest host this summer…

What you’re looking forward to next season

Our coverage of more football games than ever before. We aim to build stronger relationships with our local sides in order to enhance our sports coverage next season, which all begins on Saturday 23rd July as we head to Manchester to watch Hampton and Richmond Borough as they take on the tough opponents of Salford City.

Local Player of the season

François Gabbidon (SCR) – Stellar season, stellar performances, stellar bloke. Exactly what you’d want from a footballer, and it was a pleasure to meet him.

Best Wandsworth Radio Sport Moment

18 July, 2015 – The Get Active Wandsworth Festival with Kai, Martin and Lisa last year. It was a most wonderful event and I had such a thrill being on stage and can’t wait to be there again this year.

Best WR Sport Show of the year

5 August, 2015 – The Predictions Show on Wandsworth Radio Sport: Xtra Time. We realised how not to be pundits live on air when our predictions went completely wrong!

Best Sport Co-host of the year

Everyone – this is such a brilliant team.

What are you looking for to next season

I can’t wait to be more involved in the show, throw myself into training, and get ready for next season, and hopefully have another sports show.

 

Lewis Reece, Assistant Sports Editor and Chief MMA ReporterLRE

Favourite moment of this season:

Well looking away from the woeful season my own team Chelsea has had, I’ve had to look elsewhere for this one. So I’m going with Atletico Madrid reaching the Champions League final. Not only do I believe Simeone’s side have had a solid season and deserve it, but it’s refreshing to see another Spanish side outside of Real and Barca get to that stage and outplay the other giants in European football. Diego and his players have worked hard to reach this level.

 

Least favourite moment of the season:

Mourinho joined Man Utd after months of unemployment.

Mourinho joined Man Utd after months of unemployment.

As a Chelsea fan it was personally the day Jose Mourinho was fired. It wasn’t a shocker by any means at all considering our woeful form up to that point, the team had been massively underperforming and there were constant rumours of unrest between the players and the manager, but he’d brought so much success to the club that the fans were determined to stick behind him. The worst part for me was the fact that he had a long term plan, and he wanted to further build his legacy at Stamford Bridge much like Alex Ferguson famously has at Manchester Utd, but we’ll never get to see how that would’ve unfolded now.

 

Best club of the season:

AFC Wimbledon – It’s been a memorable season for Wimbledon as they’re now so close to promotion as they play Plymouth Argyle in the League 2 play-off final. It’s especially memorable after finishing last season in a pretty mediocre 15th place after a dismal run of form that saw them end the season without a single victory in their last eight league games.

Leicester City – How can I not mention Leicester after an absolutely remarkable season? I don’t think that there’s anything left to say about the team that hasn’t been already. I’ll admit I was someone who didn’t think they could go all the way but they proved me, and many others, very wrong. Next year will be very interesting for them.

West Ham United – Granted they certainly weren’t title challengers but I believe they’re a team on the rise and could be real contenders for a top four position next year.

 

Worst club of the season:

Chelsea FC – Again this is more of a personal choice as a lifelong supporter, but this season was abysmal. There are no excuses, on and off the pitch it was a shambles for the club and I couldn’t wait for the season to end quick enough, from the Eva Carneiro debacle to us fighting relegation for a while. Next season should hopefully bring an improvement (I don’t see how it couldn’t) but right now there are no expectations from me.

Aston Villa – Well looking at Villa this season things could be worse I guess. Finishing with only six points ahead of the lowest recorded points ever (from Derby) relegation seemed to be looming for Villa for a long time and they never looked like fighting it off.

 

Premier League XI of the Season:

David de Gea – I was tempted to pick Gomes after a solid year with Watford, but for me I had to go with who I believe is still one of the finest players in the league. De Gae has once again saved Utd plenty of points and if he remains this Summer I’m sure he will under Mourinho too.

Morgan led Leicester to a superb title win.

Morgan led Leicester to a superb title win.

Wes Morgan and Toby Alderweireld were pretty easy picks for standout defenders this year, while Nathaniel Clyne and Aaron Cresswell just edged into my pick of the full backs due to consistent form.

N’Golo Kante – A big key to Leicester’s success and another player of the year contender on my list, his hard work and effort proved that he was a tremendous signing.

Riyad Mahrez – Many peoples pick for player of the season was another easy decision, the Algerian has been simply great with his 16 goals and 11 assists which helped earn him a Premier League winners medal.

Kevin De Bruyne – A bit of a surprise for me this season as I was shocked with how much was spent on him, but he’s really proven himself at Manchester City and makes a huge difference when he’s present.

Dele Alli – He’s been in inspired form this season and a big part of Spurs success.

Jamie Vardy – An obvious one, but I fail to see how you could leave him out. He’s had a tremendous turnaround this season and it certainly made a massive difference to Leicester’s title bid.

Harry Kane – Another striker who for another consecutive season hit great form with 22 goals and helped Tottenham reach an unprecedented top four spot.

 

Disappointing Player of the Season:

Benteke has scored nine times since his Liverpool move.

Benteke has scored nine times since his Liverpool move.

Christian Benteke – Obviously Hazard was an easy choice, but I’m going with Benteke who went from a reliable asset to Villa last year and a desirable star striker to a disappointment this season. It’s hard to believe he was brought in for £32 million, with only eight goals scored and more substitute appearances than starting ones.

 

Player of the Season:

Riyad Mahrez – It’s hard to believe this player was signed for only £400,000 (I say only but in today’s football it isn’t much) back in 2014 when you look at what he’s done over the last season to help his team win an unprecedented Premier League trophy. This wasn’t an easy choice but it was his overall contributions with his goals and assists that edged it for me.

 

Best Wandsworth Radio Sport Moment of the Season:

9th January,2016: For me personally it was the first time I jumped on the microphone. I didn’t know what to expect or how I’d do (and I admittedly didn’t do great when I started I don’t think, but I prefer to keep that quiet) but I found it welcoming and glad I gave it a go and stuck around at Wandsworth Radio!

I also almost went for out discussion of wife carrying, the fastest growing sport in the World.

 

Best Sports Show of the Year and favourite Co-Host of the Year:

The cover image when Lewis and Jamie took the show together.

The cover image when Lewis and Jamie took the show together.

19 March, 2016: I decided to do this as a joint answer as I’m going for the show I did with my own brother Jamie. Obviously as brothers I knew the chemistry would be there for that show but it was also the first time I took charge of the show on my own (with much help from Alex I’ll admit) so I was admittedly pretty nervous the week leading up to it, but it seemed to go down well and I had a lot of fun.

I’ll be honest and say I’ve also enjoyed working with every co-host on the show.

 

What you’re looking forward to next season:

If I’m honest on a personal level I’m hoping we see a much improved Chelsea. We have the team that’s clearly capable of being top four and challenging for the title so I’m looking forward to seeing how the team lines up and performs.

What was your favourite moment of this season?

As a Chelsea supporter, this season wasn’t chock full of memories I’ll be cherishing for years to come. However, the green shoots of youth were particularly pleasing. Winning the youth Champions League, in addition to yet another FA Youth Cup final, were fantastic achievements for Chelsea and the entire academy. I enjoyed Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s gradual integration into the first team proper and expect he will be around for a long time to come. Lewis Baker recently showed his promise by capturing the golden boot at the Toulon tournament with England’s u21s, with Ruben winning player of the tournament. I’m desperately hoping new boss Antonio Conte will bring these players, and all of the other high sought after Chelsea youth team players, into the side for next season.

Palace’s run to the cup final, despite being a shambles in the league was amusing, but I’ve decided to finish on AFC Wimbledon. A club formed in a pub just 14 years ago will now compete in the third division after a triumphant playoff final at Wembley. I wish them all the best and hope (like many football fans) they beat MK Dons home and away next season!

 

What was your least favourite moment of the season?

Jose Mourinho shouting at the club doctor in the first game of the season put the writing on the wall for the 9 months ahead. A nasty and depressing affair.

 

Best club of the season

AFC Wimbledon face MK Dons in the league next season...

AFC Wimbledon face MK Dons in the league next season…

AFC Wimbledon by far for me. If Leicester City hadn’t stolen the headlines, I suspect a lot of the media attention this season would have been on the Dons’ climb into League One, where they will take on MK Dons after their relegation from the Championship. AFC Wimbledon has a ton of goodwill from fans across the country and with a new stadium on the way, could power their way up the divisions even further in seasons to come. Will be fascinating to watch.

 

Worst club of the season

Brentford gets a mention for me. What were they thinking in sacking Mark Warburton? He’s gone on to show his class at Rangers, nearly winning the Scottish Cup and taking the ‘Gers back up to the top division.

If Palace hadn’t got to the cup final, which is a fine achievement in itself, then they would have been vilified in the press for their abysmal run post-Christmas.

Cesc Fabregas walks depressed as Chelsea endured a poor season.

Cesc Fabregas walks depressed as Chelsea endured a poor season.

Yet Chelsea just edge it for me. Everything that could have gone wrong for the reigning league champions, seemed to go wrong. They looked appallingly short of fitness in preseason friendlies and I remember saying down my local that they were going to have a terrible season and so it proved. Then again, if any other club had the longest unbeaten run in the premier league all season and fin

ished eighth, they’d call it a success. Not at Chelsea, and thus they are my worst club of the season.

Disappointing Player of the Season

He looks pleased here but the Belgian 'keeper didn't have a good season, says Pink

He looks pleased here but the Belgian ‘keeper didn’t have a good season, says Pink

Thibaut Courtois – He is never the most expressive player when out on the pitch, but he didn’t cover himself in glory this year. A commanding goalkeeper is essential to marshalling the defenders, which seems to have been overlooked when examining Chelsea’s defensive record this season. Begovic should have played more and, frankly, if Courtois did leave the club I wouldn’t be too upset.

 

Player of the Season

Jamie Vardy – Mahrez was perhaps more enjoyable to watch, and Kane was a battering ram, but Vardy’s season will be remembered for the ages. I don’t suspect he’ll get anywhere close to it again, so it’s best to give him the nod here.

 

Best Wandsworth Radio Sport Moment of the Season

2 April, 2016: Clearly the interview with London 2012 Olympic Volleyball player Andrew Pink was a highlight!

 

Favourite Co-Host of the Season:

What you’re looking forward to next season:

Continuing to work in a fantastic sports team like this!

What was your favourite moment of this season?

Louis Van Gaal calling Chris Smalling – Mike Smalling…Twice! Absolutely priceless.

What was your least favourite moment of the season?

Everton getting smashed 4-0 at Anfield. The saddest thing about that was how we simply rolled over and it could have been 7 or 8. That was the end for Bobby in my eyes.

Best Clubs of the Season

Leicester City – No explanation needed

Tottenham Hotspur – The progress that’s been made at White Hart Lane this year is unparalleled and as a result they will be a premier league force for the next 5 years. They are my favourites to win the title next year.

AFC Wimbledon – Compared to last year where they looked to nearly be involved in a relegation battle at times they’ve performed superbly and showed great heart in the play-offs. I hope they keep up the good work and continue to power themselves up the football league!

Worst Clubs of the Season

Aston Villa – Their demise has been catastrophic and I personally think that they were beyond stupid to get rid of Tim Sherwood. And the appointment of Remi Garde… Pure idiocy.

Chelsea – Just appalling in so many ways this season. I felt sorry for Jose aside from the Evagate scandal. The players properly did for him.

Martinez's Everton tenure came to an end this May

Martinez’s Everton tenure came to an end this May

Everton – How can a team with such talented individuals do so poorly? I think a reliance on an overrated Belgian striker and a lot of bad luck to be quite honest. However, there’s no bad luck in getting totally hammered 4-0 at Anfield and losing at home 8 times this season. Unforgiveable.
