‘We’ve. Gone. Backwards.’ Your three word Premier League 2014/15 season reviews

We asked fans on Facebook and Twitter to sum up their club's season using just three words

With the dust barely settled on another Premier League season, we wanted to know how you, the fans, were feeling about the year gone by.

So we asked you. But with one caveat. No page-long rants, just three words only.

Some fans responded with delight, others so incensed with their teams efforts, we’ve had to censor them out.

Here’s how you’ve told the Premier League 2014/15 story….



Blues fans don’t seem to care about being boring boring Chelsea, just as long as boring boring Chelsea win the league.

Particular shout out to Zak Green though, displaying a rare piece of Chelsea flair and creativity with this three word review…

Manchester City

Man City

Nowadays it’s win or bust as far as Man City are concerned. As City fan Lee put it, second place is a disappointment.

The kind of which that will most likely see Manuel Pellegrini relieved of his duties before too long.



A group of fans that have, as usual, been treated to some of the classiest football on the continent at times, feeling that, as usual, it could have been so much more.

A chance for a second successive FA Cup is big achievement, but it doesn’t paper over the cracks. Gooners are growing tired of the excuses.

A club of their size should be seriously competing for the Premier League title. And once again, they’ve flattered to deceive on that front.

Manchester United

Man United

Back in the Champions League. Mission accomplished. United fans seem content enough in proclaiming this campaign as ‘job done’, albeit in unglamorous fashion.

That’s not traditionally the Man United way though, and you know the fans expect more.

Challenging the title and bringing back the flair is van Gaal’s mission statement for next term.

Tottenham Hotspur


Spurs fans are exactly where they were last year. And the year before that. And the year before that.

Stuck in an endless cycle with same sequence of events playing out in front of their eyes.

As Colin Farrell’s character in the movie ‘In Bruges’ put it: “Purgatory. Kind of like the in-betweeny one. You weren’t really ****, but you weren’t all that great either. Like Tottenham.”



Talisman gone in the summer. No problem. “We won’t do a Tottenham” exclaimed a confident pre-season Brendan Rodgers. “When you spend £100m you really should be winning the league.”

Well, they did spend a £100m, they did ‘do a Tottenham’ and they didn’t win the league. And it’s very clear how Reds fans feel about that.



Saints fan Christine Curtis summed up Southampton’s campaign as ‘Better than expected’.

When you consider that prior to the season they’d lost their manager, sold pretty much all of their best players and everyone was saying they’d be going down, to finish in 7th place on the brink of European qualification means Christine’s probably got it about right.

Swansea City


Another season of progression for the Swans, and the fans are duly delighted with their team’s showing this term.

Not enough credit goes to chairman Huw Jenkins, who has a real eye for a managerial appointment and has produced yet another gem in club hero Garry Monk.

They’ll be ones to watch again next year…

Stoke City


Perhaps the league leaders in the ‘team with fans most beaming with pride’ stakes at the moment.

Mark Hughes got his men producing some scintillating football at times, whilst also providing us with some of the season’s most memorable goals.

The ‘long throw in the box, rough and tumble’ Stoke stereotype is dead, and these fans can’t get enough.

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace

Having been hounded out the door at St James’ Park, Alan Pardew was welcomed with open arms down at Selhurst Park in January.

Taking the club from the relegation zone to their highest ever Premier League finish (their first ever in the top 10) has been another magnificent managerial success story in a season of many.

Palace fans are rightly looking ahead with optimism.
