With the season coming to end it’s only natural there’s going to be talk of player/goal/save of the season. So I thought I’d take a slightly different route and pick my favourite moment of the season.
Now this can be anything from something that happened on the pitch to when you were sitting in the stands watching the game, to something that put a smile on your face. I thought I’d share with you my favourite moments on, and off, the field.
On the field there was obviously quite a few options to choose from, but for me Hatem Ben Arfa’s goal against Everton was my favourite moment. There was nobody happier than me when we signed Wor Benny and I couldn’t wait to see him in action. So for him to go and score a goal like that on his first start for us was unbelievable.
Unfortunately we all know what happened next but hopefully next season we see more of what Ben Arfa is capable of, just like he showed us all of those months ago at Goodison Park.
My favourite moment off the field came as recently as at the end of the match yesterday. When Somen Tchoyi nodded in that goal in the 90th minute to make it 3-3. I was obviously gutted, as I’m sure we all were, but the guy who sits in front of me stood up and screamed “f**k off” as loud as he could and sat back down with his head in his hands.
Now I’ve sat behind this guy for two seasons now and not once have I seem him do anything like that, so for him to do it there in a game where there wasn’t much riding on it not only showed the passion us fans have but also gave me a bit of a laugh in a otherwise bleak moment.
So they are my favourite moments on and off the field. Of course peoples off the field moments aren’t going to mean as much to everyone else but it’s still good to share it with everyone nonetheless.
So what is your favourite moment of the season?
Incidentally – Tchoyi’s hat-trick yesterday were his first goals since he scored againt us at The Hawthorns back in December. He also scored in a reserves match against us. Typical eh!
