What is the best/worst season your club has had since you started watching them? Watch
Best - 00/01(Promotion) or 04/05(got into the uefa cup)
Worst 11/12(Relegation) or this season.
Worst - 2013/14 (Unless Moyes delivers the CL in May).
Worst - 09/10. To finish second in 08/09 was a real positive. We finished two points shy of winning the league with the highest ever runners-up tally. We then let Alonso go and replaced him with the injury-prone Aquilani and ended up finishing a lowly 7th the next year. Really disappointing. I wasn't surprised Rafa was let go. Hodgson's season with us ranks as an equal worst, but for sheer expectation, I was more disappointed with this.
When I got into football, I supported my hometown club Brighton & Hove Albion (since Worthing is too low down to really follow). Again, their worst season was 97/98 finishing 23rd in Division 3 i.e. the lowest possible finish without leaving the Football League. As with Man Utd, it's been up and up from as soon as I started supporting them/watching football.
Incidentally, Hull, Swansea and Cardiff were directly above Brighton in the next places. Just look at us now.
Winning the CL in 2005 was the highest point. But I think 2008/2009 was the best season as a whole.
This season may top that though.
Worst was probably the first half of the season for 2010/2011 under Roy Hodgson. Kenny did a great job in the second half of the season though.
Worst 2011/12. Just found it very depressing after CescNasri/Clichy left and we had the likes of Santos/Gervinho/Benayoun playing, Ramsey/Mertesacker before they got good, and the team in general seemed to be full of average players. We didnt really seem to have a clear long term direction either and it looked certain that Spurs would finish above us for most of the season. Everything seemed against us, Wilshere/Rosicky missing through injury etc. Even the bright points like the 3-0 win at Milan were pointless. Only bright spot was seeing RVP rape every week but even that's now a bitter memory after he ****ed us over at the end of that season. And then to top it all off, Chavski won the CL in typical style and Holland were pathetic at the Euros. Bad memories all round tbh.
Worst:2012/13- Very frustrating time to be a fan tbh.
Best was last season 2012/13. What and absolute brilliant season getting into a major cup final whilst being mid table in league two and beating 3 premiership teams along the way. Then gaining promotion into league 1
