    Definetly, we had extreme highs and lows but we ended on a massive high which gives us momentum into next season.

    Happy with the manager, why?

    You can't argue with what he's achieved this season.

    Best player:

    Kelvin Wilson

    Worst Player:

    Grant Holt

    Best match this season:

    Home to Yeovil

    Worst match this season:

    Gillingham Away

    Robert Earnshaw, will score the goals to keep us up and provides real competition for Tyson and Agogo.

    Hopes for next season?

    Stay well clear of the relegation battle and take 6 points off Derby.

    Happy with the season, why? Yes and no, it was a bittersweet season - it was a successful one, because we were promoted, but aside from the euphoria of the last day, I don't remember many times when I enjoyed it or felt we were in 'a promotion season'

    Happy with the manager, why? Yes and no, but mostly no - he's earned my patience to see if he can develop and sign the players he needs to play his system. In the first half against Yeovil there were times when we played wonderful one-touch passing football - more of that and I'll become a convert. He also needs to play players in their correct position (Chambo ain't a rightback), and cut out the silly substitutions - which, to be fair, he did toward the end of the season

    Best player: Smith, all those clean sheets were the foundation of our better results, and despite the stick he gets he's by far the best 'keeper we've had in a long time. Special mentions also to Wilson, Sammy, Cohen and Bennett who've all had decent seasons with the odd wobble in form

    Worst Player: I've probably not been frustrated by a player more than Chambers this season - but I think he's done a massive disservice by the position/formation he's in - if he had a winger protecting him he'd be okay, but as a wingback he's not good enough in that role. Calling him the worst player sounds over-harsh, though.

    Best match this season: Do you really have to ask...?

    Worst match this season: Bournemouth away... again!

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc): Earnshaw/Beattie/Nugent - not sure whether they're realistic, but one of the three would make me very happy indeed - we need someone who can bag goals. If we got Nugent (which to me is the more unrealistic of the three) then we should get Ormerod too - they've been a successful partnership elsewhere.

    Hopes for next season: I will be content with a season of consolidation; I don't want to see us within anywhere near of the relegation zone, and will consider the management team to have failed if we are. Top half finish, with a sly hope of sneaking into the playoffs. The Championship is a competitive league, so with the right signings this isn't unrealistic.

    Not happy, but we got promoted, job done.

    Happy with the manager, why?
    No, we went up in spite of Clownderwood's insanity. Championship teams will not be as forgiving as those in League One. He will be found out.

    Best player:
    Bennet or Smith.

    Worst Player:
    Agogogogogogo solely for his attitude.

    Best match this season:
    The Yeovil home match, obviously.

    Worst match this season:
    The Johnstones Paint Trophy matches, they were so worthless I cannot remember who we played and who knocked us out.

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc) Who is realistic depends on how much Doughty is prepared to back Clownderwood.

    Hopes for next season?
    Doughty, Arthur and Clownderwood are exiled from Nottinghamshire. Avoiding relegation would be nice also. To shake hands with Sedgred.

    The result yeah, not the season altogether.

    Happy with the manager, why?
    Not really but he did the job and thus deserves a chance

    Best player:
    Smith or bennett

    Worst Player:
    Grant Holt

    Best match this season:
    Has to be Yeovil at home

    Worst match this season:
    Bournemouth at home on Opening day.

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc)
    prolific goalscorer - James Beattie. I would like to see Stern John back as he bagged 19 in the championship last season and knows the club.

    Hopes for next season?
    Top 10 or so, have a strong feeling for the playoffs if the right players are bought in!

    Happy with the season, why?
    Yes, we got promoted so job done. Obviously it all seems better now in hindsight than it probably was, but if nothing else I've enjoyed actually having a group of players who for the most part seem genuinely passionate about the club.

    Happy with the manager, why?
    Yes, we went up so can't complain. Some of his tactics and team selections are farcical but they did get better towards the end of the season, plus all of his signings have been very good. Don't know how he'll fare at the higher level but considering in 5 years of management he's never finished outside the top 6, I'd expect he'll at least lead us to safety next season.

    Best player:
    Wes Morgan - stiff competition by Smith, Wilson, Benno & Cohen but I chose Wes as he's been a rock in the the defence, plus his mazy runs are so often the only bit of excitement in otherwise dreary games (I'm looking at you Bristol Rovers (H), Walsall (H), Luton (H) etc etc

    Worst Player:
    Grant Holt - probably down to injury but his apparent lack of effort in some games disgusted me. The Huddersfield game in particular sticks out in my mind, I don't think he could have been any sh*tter if he'd tried that day.

    Best match this season:
    Obviously Yeovil (H), magic day but otherwsie I loved Huddersfield (H), Northampton (A), Yeovil (A) & Orient (A).

    Worst match this season:
    Bournemouth (A) or Swindon (A) - both horrendous. Felt like crap after Carlisle at home too.

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc) Any forwards, not particularly fussed who after waiting to sign a striker for so long.

    Hopes for next season? Satying up is the only aim after so many big clubs almost went down this season. There are no minnows left up here after Collywho and Scunny's relegations - even Blackpool are former giants - so it seems likely one big club will go down, just hope it's not us.

    Happy with the season, why?
    Yes, in the end.But I'll tell you what I was miserable as sin for most of the season regarding Forest so for the duration I really wasn't too happy and was disillusioned but we got there in the end.

    Happy with the manager, why?
    He did what he was briefed to do so I'm content for now.Will be interesting to see who he signs in the summer and how he copes at the highest level he would managed at.Hopefully no strange tactics this season and playing players out of position,I suppose it is one hell of an ask there

    Best player:
    Kelvin Wilson-Made an incredible difference and deserves a lot of credit for being a part of a immaculate defence this season

    Worst Player:
    Grant Holt - To be fair he was placed on the right wing inexcusably by Calderwood and his confidence was drained but his goal return and effort was no where near up to scratch this season.Hope he will not be here by the season's beggining

    Best match this season:
    Need you ask

    Worst match this season:
    Crewe away,who needs sleeping pills eh!
    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc) Earnshaw,goalscorer,capable of 20 goals in this division,would make a huge difference.

    Hopes for next season? Consolodation,I don't demand too much for the season ahead as long as we avoid a relegation battle I will be content

    If there was ever to be a big enough incentive that was it. They were aweful.

    That was my first match just going by myself as well.

    Happy with the season, why?
    Yes we got promotion, fair enough it wasn't vintage, in fact for a large part of the season it was poor, but we got there in the end and lets face it, was getting out of this league ever going to be done easily?

    Happy with the manager, why?
    He Got us promoted, so yes, but I think that a large part of the reason we didn't wrap up promotion earlier was Colin. However you can call me fickle all you like, but his substitutions have improoved a lot towards the end of the season and I firmly believe that he will do better next season. (He's earnt himself till Christmas in my book)

    Best player:
    Paul Smith, closely followed by Jullian Bennet

    Worst Player:
    Grant Holt and Matt Lockwood

    Best match this season:
    Obviously Yeovil (H)
    Yeovil away was fun too!

    Worst match this season:
    Of the games I've seen - Doncaster (A)

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why?
    Any of the three strikers we have been linked with would do ... I don't personally think they are realistic, but I'd be happy with one of them. We also need to improve midfield, right back and a back up keeper too

    Hopes for next season?
    Realistically I'd settle for 14th upwards with aims of a top half finish.

    Looking back we should realise we have a knack of bottling it when it matters most, there, Chelsea in the cup and Yeovil at home in the play offs to name just 3 of the top of my head

    Happy with the season, why? Yes, we got promoted.

    Happy with the manager, why? Yes he did the job that was asked of him, at times it wasnt pretty or vintage. But he did it and thats all that matters.

    Best player: Julian Bennett

    Worst Player: Lockward/Grant Holt

    Best match this season: Crewe Home (Dario Grady Called Us The Best Football Team In League 1)
    Carlisle Away
    Yeovil Away

    Worst match this season: Luton Away (Fa Cup)

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc) Kevin Philips. He would get us 20 + goals.

    Hopes for next season? Finish 7th - 21st

    Happy with the season, why?
    Yes. Promotion!

    Happy with the manager, why?

    No, tactically he got it wrong on too many occasions. But he got us promoted so deserves the chance to prove himself next season.

    Best player:

    Paul Smith. He made so many superb saves this season. With a lesser keeper in nets we wouldn't have even made the playoffs. Shame he's a mute who can't kick really.

    Worst Player:

    Well Holt had a mare of a season, but it wasn't really his fault. Lockwood was a big disappointment. Kantstopalotapopalopadis stripped James Henry of the title of 'least successful loan signing ever'.

    Best match this season:

    Yo! Vill! At! Home!
    Worst match this season:

    Bournemouth away was the most dismal display I have seen in a long time, so that's definitely number one.
    Carlisle at home was soul-destroying because it demonstrated to me at the time that (1) We were better than them (2)Despite this, we had just fucked up our chance at automatic promotion.

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc)

    Peter Whittingham would be an excellent signing.
    Hopes for next season?

    Staying up and playing something resembling passing football. And to take at least 2 points off Derby.

    unfortunately I have not been to as many games this season as I would have liked. Usually I have a season ticket but for the last 2 years I have not had one. Only been to about 10- 12 games this season so my basis for answering these questions will not be proper.

    Happy with the season, why? Automatic promotion, no playoff heartache again thank God.
    so yes i am very happy.

    Happy with the manager, why? I was once a doubter of CC and to be honest I am still skeptical, we will see how he handles his business in the championship.

    Best player: From the games I saw I would say Cohen for his all round play and his professional attitude and link up play. McGugan for similar reasons but not for working as hard. Wesley too, he has been a rock in the games i have seen. Obviously Smith too, he is very dependable (most of the time anyway)

    Worst Player: Matt Lockwood. saw him play once and im glad I will not see him play again (touch wood) out of his depth.

    Best match this season: the final day just for the atmosphere and the energy around the place.

    Worst match this season: The performance on the oppening day was terrible, Bournemouth I think it was, crap performance. Also Leeds at home, although we did play quite well in spells the ending was gutting.,

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc) Id have James Beatie like some nutty reporters have been saying. Also Peter Whittingham from Cardiff, he looks the best player we have been linked with.

    Hopes for next season? midtable will do me just fine, sniffing around 8 to 12 spot but with 6 points off the sheep shaggers

    If you'd asked the same thing in February/March, I'd have said no, but ultimately, we got promoted so how could you be unhappy?

    Happy with the manager, why?
    At the moment, yes.

    Best player:
    Cohen or Bennett.

    Worst Player:
    Grant Holt.

    Best match this season:
    Yeovil. Every time.

    Worst match this season:
    Swindon away.

    If you could sign one player for next season, who would it be and why? (Realistic players not messi etc)
    Earnshaw. We need a goalscorer.

    Hopes for next season?
    Mid-table mediocrity and Doughty to back the manager financially again.
