This is it, the last game of the season. This is how the league table looked like before this game:
With just one game left, this was how the promotion battle looked like. The battle for the title was a four-horse race, which we were involved in. We were to play away to 23rd placed MK Dons, Oxford were to host Bristol Rovers and Rotherham were to host 17th placed Barnet. We needed to pick up a win to guarantee the title win, could we do it?
For some odd reason, our game was delayed by ten minutes. This meant that we would find out the results of the other games with about ten minutes remaining. Here are the results of the other title-chasers:
These must have been absolutely thrilling games, with late winners for Oxford and for Rotherham. What this meant was that they were above us, depending on our result. We were 80-83 minutes in when these two fixtures finished, and you will see how desperate we were now:
Would you believe it? Just minutes after finding out that we needed a win to be crowned champions, we pulled off one of the greatest moments in football history! We were minutes away form just finishing third in the league but we managed to pull it off, and all because of that man Euan Smith! He has been a top player for us this season and that goal is the million pound goal for him. The jubilation after that goal was immense!
And there we have it, confirmation that we have won the league! This is a huge achievement for us and one that I will cherish forever!
Reporter:"Paul, it has been over a week since that amazing day where your side lifted the league title in dramatic circumstances. How will you remember that day?"
Bono:"I guess it is hard to describe that day. I was very nervous going in to the last few minutes. I heard that Oxford and Rotherham had both scored late winners which would have put them ahead of us in the league. Once I found out, I knew that we would need to really push for a goal. We pushed for the goal and when we scored, it was the greatest feeling ever. That goal was one of the greatest moments of our lives. After what we have been through recently, this was a moment to remember for the rest of our lives."
Reporter:"Vauxhall Motors has come on in leaps and bounds since you have taken over. What do you have to say about the club's progress?"
Bono:"The club has been amazing the five years that I have been in charge. From Day One, the club has been heading in the right direction. The commitment of the players, the staff and the two sets of boards has been exemplary. We have come on in leaps and bounds since then and we have now established ourselves as a professional football club. This is a big honour for us and one that we can cherish for ever."
Reporter:"Next season will be a very big season for you and the club. What do you expect next season and how will you meet those expectations?"
Bono:"Next season will be a huge season for us. Another promotion and another step up in class. I suppose our main goal for next season will be to avoid relegation. To accomplish that, we will be looking to improve as a team, and as a club. We will be very busy this summer, although I will not reveal anything in terms of transfers. That is one topic we will need to keep secret. Hopefully we can have another great season next season!"
Our fifth season with Bono in charge of Vauxhall Motors has come to a thrilling and memorable end and I have a season review to show you guys now. Enjoy!
NPower League Two
Our season was an amazing season for us. Our best spell was from August to October, where we went sixteen games unbeaten. From that run, we had eleven wins and five draws. Our next good run of form was December and January, where we won six games, drew three and lost just one of those ten games. We did pick up a lot of draws in the second half of the season but we have been better defensively, however. Our best win of the season was our last win against MK Dons, where we won the league title. This was a very tough game against a team that was fighting against relegation but we sunk them in the end.
We were crowned champions in an exciting season. Oxford came second on goal difference, with Rotherham in third by two points. Us three clubs got automatic promotion. Grimsby won the play-offs to join us in League One. This was an incredible season, and I'm blessed to have won the Manager of the Season award.
I was delighted with our unexpected win over Carlisle but I was disappointed with our heavy defeat to Crewe. They may have been a league above us but they battered us. Hopefully we can do better next season.
Capital One Cup
We were absolutely slaughtered by a much stronger team. We were played off the pitch from kick-off. Hopefully we will get an easier tie next year.
Johnstone's Paint Trophy
I was very disappointed with our performance in this competition. I had expected to progress a fair bit but we lost to a much weaker Accrington side.
(Coventry win on penalties)
Player of the Season
Was there ever any doubt over who our Player of the Season would be? Obi Anoruo had another prolific season for us, scoring 26 goals and claiming 13 assists in 43 games. This is a very prolific total for a Deep Lying Forward. He has shown great class and great commitment to constantly pop up when we needed him. If there was ever a player to become a Vauxhall legend, it would be Obi Anoruo. He has the club's top goalscorer in history, and also has the record amount of appearances for the club too. This is not just a record, it is the hallmark of a pure genius, a hero, a legend!
That is the season review for 2016/2017. This was my most enjoyable season so far, as we took a huge step towards becoming one of the best teams in England. Hopefully we can continue to progress next season.
*Note* As I am now in the year 2017, the world of football has changed quite a lot.
