As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.
Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.
2. Manchester City
Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.
Let's just leave Raheem Sterling out of the equation for now (plenty yesterday and below if you must) at Liverpool. There are other strikers in the world and one in particular that may tick all of the boxes for Brendan Rodgers and company this summer.
Christian Benteke has been in great form -- nine goals in his last eight matches...
West Brom's 3-0 win over Chelsea at The Hawthorns was undoubtedly their best performance this season, and it once more owed a lot to the contribution of Saido Berahino.
After eight games without a goal, Berahino returned to form with two goals to inflict only a third defeat of the season on the Premier League champions. That took Berahino's tally for the season to 20 in all competitions, with 14 of those coming in the league. It's a stunning contribution for a player in only his second full season...
WEST BROMWICH, England -- Three points on West Brom's 3-0 win vs. Chelsea in the Premier League.

Tony Pulis, the cast-iron managerial guarantee signed in double triplicate for avoiding relegation, has done what he does...
The hard-earned point took the side's tally to 41, seven clear of Hull with just two games remaining. That made it mission accomplished for head coach Tony Pulis, who stated on his arrival the club that it would be a harder job than the one he had at Crystal Palace last season.
Huge credit must be given to Pulis for the way he's turned the season around since replacing...
West Brom's 1-0 win at Old Trafford was their second consecutive away win against Manchester United and came on the back of an outstanding performance from Boaz Myhill.
Myhill, only playing due to Ben Foster's long-term injury, was in superb form to deny United and in particular Robin van Persie, including a saved penalty against the Dutchman. While that was a good save, his stop to deny Van Persie in the first minute of injury time was even better, especially because of the deflection it took off...
