An 'interesting', though not always entertaining, season.
The relative European successes of Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen - though Rangers, in particular. I didn't think Aberdeen would win a tie let alone face Bayern Munich in February. A lot of defensive stuff, 'closing space', fewer flair players than previously but still at least no humiliations of not-so-long-ago.
No-one could have predicted, except those who predicted it, Dunfermline's complete failure to even challenge for promotion. I thought Stephen Kenny had some good ideas in the SPL and perhaps, like Paul Le Guen at Rangers, he was the right man at the wrong time for the Pars.
The Gretna fiasco made the relegation issue a non-event fairly on in the campaign. I had demented hopes that Gretna might do something and thought Caley would struggle. Their early form suggested I might have been onto something but Caley's change in manager and Gretna's obvious incompetence saved their skin. Along with a few others, though, I wonder if they'll be nervously looking over their shoulder at Billy Reid's Hamilton.
I think Rangers would have won the league if the Old Firm games had been played to order. Playing the Celtic Park fixtures back-to-back in April allowed Celtic to build up a head of steam in the run-in, just as Rangers were running out of steam. From Jan Vennegoor of Hesselinnk's 102nd minute winner against Rangers, I always felt the momentum was with them and that the title would be theirs.
Overall, I think the standard had slipped slightly but was more competitive. The Old Firm only played attractive football in patches and not consistently throughout the season. Hibs were always good to watch in the last few years but having lost so many players they're bound to struggle - they also appear to be heading off in a different direction/style under Paatelainen. Hearts are a shambles. Aberdeen remain inconsistent. Motherwell played some good football up until Phil O'Donnell's death but never really reached their first half form in the second half of the season. The pitch wouldn't have helped either.
So, more entertaining football for next season - from everyone. And no 4-in-a-row, sweet Jesus.
