On-pitch moment of the season = Didier Drogba's goal and celebration against Liverpool in the Champions League

Off-pitch moment of the season = Mourinho's sacking

Player who must not be sold = Joe Cole

Greatest goal = Alex vs Middlesbrough, with Shevchenko's assist

Most embarrassing moment = The last-minute equaliser against Wigan.

Effect of manager’s shopping = Mourinho's signings have failed to deliver, save Alex, whilst Anelka has had little impact for Grant.

The season in five words = Initially disappointing but eventually promising

Five-point action plan for the summer = Buy a young goalkeeper, a winger, a striker, a playmaker and sell surplus players

On-pitch moment of the season : Lampard penalty against Liverpool which put us through to the finals

Off-pitch moment of the season Jose Mourinho sacked

Player who must not be sold I would say JT but because he won't be sold anyway, I will choose of all of those who are rumoured to be leaving - Didier Drogba.

Greatest goal Belli against Sperms

Most embarrassing moment Losing to Barnsley after slating Loserpool for losing to them

Effect of manager’s shopping Not bad, not revolutionary. Tbh only Anelka has been brought in, so it cannot be asked like that.

The season in five words Most exciting of recent years

Five-point action plan for the summer

1. Make good signings

2. Renew Lampsy's contract

3. Appoint a better, good manager

4. Play enough friendlies to build up fitness

5. Make plans to reduce number of injuries in training

On-pitch moment of the season Chelsea vs Liverpool - 2nd Leg CL SF. I can't pick one moment out of it, it was just all perfect; Lampard scoring after his mother's death, Lampard's performance throughout the game, Drogba's celebration and the fact that we finally beat them in the SF, great game.

Off-pitch moment of the season Jose leaving/Grant arriving

Player who must not be sold Out of those rumoured to leave? Lampard

Greatest goal Alex vs Middlesbrough

Most embarrassing moment Ballack + Drogba's breakdown for the freekick against United, was so childish and was such an important time. Thankfully we did win the match.

Effect of manager's shopping

Alex - Very good

Belletti - I like him, obviously Avram doesn't.

Anelka - I wasn't expecting much this season, hopefully he'll finally come good.

The season in five words We're always gonna be there

Five-point action plan for the summer

1. Sign a class winger

2. Sell dead-wood

3. Bring in a few youth players

4. Don't get bullied in transfer market

5. Stop getting injured!

On-pitch moment of the season =

Drogs celebration/beating liverpool in the CL SF

Off-pitch moment of the season =

Jose getting fired

Player who must not be sold =

Essien

Greatest goal =

Alex vs boro

Most embarrassing moment =

Jose getting fired the day of the DVD release

Effect of manager’s shopping =

Jose's - Haim=crap, Sidwell=good role player/back-up, Pizzaro=crap, Alex=great back-up, Belletti=so so/ok for a last minute deal

Avram - Anelka=too early to tell - needs more time in natural position with Drogs, Ivanovic=jury is still out

The season in five words =

a rollercoaster ride to remember

Five-point action plan for the summer =

1. Sort out manager situation

2. See point #1

3. If drogs stays - buy a class but YOUNG, winger - if he leaves a striker holds priority

4. give some of the younger players a chance to fill in the back-up roles-let them play the FA/Carling matches 

5. have keyon sign a contract clause that he will not blow smoke up our asses

On-pitch moment of the season:

Lampards Penalty vs Liverpool

Off-pitch moment of the season:

Jose's departure

Player who must not be sold:

Because of the rumours, Lampard. Players like cech and JT will never go but there are question marks over Franky and Drogs.

Greatest goal:

Malouda vs Newcastle

Most embarrassing moment:

The defeat to Barnsley in the FA Cup.

Effect of manager's shopping:

In general they have been decent without setting the world alight.

The season in five words:

tough, inconsistant, unlucky, resiliant, dogid

Five-point action plan for the summer:

1) Appoint a new manager

2) Sort out Franks Contract

3) Get rid of the duffers

4) Buy who we need, don't worry about the money, just get the right men in no matter what it takes.

5) suss out the best formation, work on the 4-4-2.
