2018/19 End of Season Review
Four promotions in as many seasons. Unbelievable in most peoples eyes, and certainly unexpected by all at the club. But can we make it five in five? Surely not…?

Sky Bet Championship (stats)
Wow. We were playing against some of the best players in the world. Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Blackburn, Olivier Giroud and Loic Remy at QPR, amongst others. We had Hallam Hope. “Fear can hold you prisoner, Hope can set you free” goes the tagline of The Shawshank Redemption. Free to roam the promised land of the Premier League!!!
Hope started badly, with only five goals in 22 games, but after a very public bollocking on twitter, he shaped up, and ended up with 28 goals in all competitions.
FA Cup (stats)
The fifth round is the furthest we’ve ever gone. Arsenal were the team we wanted to avoid. So we got Arsenal! The scoreline was better than we could have guessed going into the game, and certainly made the game look closer than it actually was.
Capital One Cup (stats)
We had our best run in this competition too, reaching the fourth round before we were beaten by Premier League team Stoke. We had no choice but to play a reserve side in that fixture as the league was deemed more important and tiredness was setting in. Still, a 2-1 loss with the reserves is not in any way shameful.
IN: Lot of frees, with the two key one being Hope. Al-Shammari looks to be a good prospect.
OUT: The last of the original squad left, along with a few other of our other early signings.
The Premier League. Money. Fame. The first step towards greatness.
