The 2015/16 Premier League season has ended unless you are of the Red Devils with a game today at Old Trafford. With two games to go, we made eleven wishes. Let’s look back and see how many of them came to pass.
0 – No more injuries. It is unfair to miss the Euros. NO
Welbeck and Debuchy missed the Euros due to injuries. Walcott and Gibbs missed out on form. Wilshere made it.
1 – A goal from Francis Coquelin. Isn’t he the only outfield player yet to score in the team? NO
Of the 11, this was the most unlikely. He started the last game but was not among the goal scorers against Aston Villa. Till next season – Le Coq. Sad he didn’t make the Euros
2 – Two clean sheets for Cech to get the Golden Glove. YO
A clean sheet against Aston Villa gave Cech at least a part of the Golden Glove. Gunners will pray that De Gea concedes today so he doesn’t have to share the award like he did with Szczesny two years ago.
3 – Three assists for Mesut Ozil to surpass Thierry Henry’s assist record. NO
Ozil could only get one assist more to make it 19 in the Premier League. Henry’s 20 assists record remains intact. No one had more assist than him in the Premier League. Is there anything like Golden Socks?
4 – Fourth Man of the Match award for Alex Iwobi – My Nigerian gooner. NO
Featured against Manchester City but not a MoM performance.
5 – Five goals from Giroud, Walcott, Welbeck and Alexis. One last smile. YES
We got six goals in the last two games but four of them came from Olivier Giroud. The other goal was from Alexis. Walcott fizzled out.
6 – Six Points more. NO
We got 4 points out of 6. Good enough to finish second.
7 – Jersey number 7 on the pitch for one more time and one last goal. I have loved no other footballer than Rosicky. He is Football. YO
There were more than one jersey number 7 on the pitch after the 4-0 victory.
8 – Jersey number 8 with his perfect hair on the pitch as farewell. YES
The captain came on and contibuted to the last goal. Tears.
9 – St. Totteringham Day. YES
Unbelievable but very true. Spurs just tottered away at Newcastle. 5-1 meltdown.
10 – At least ten sweet passes leading to the final goal of the season. NO
It wasn’t to be. There was no Wilshere-a-la-Norwich goal or a Rosicky fizzle goal. But a hat-trick from Giroud was enough.
