1. Biggest regret by the Chairman. After the heartbreaking draw with Blackpool on the last day of the 2012/13 season Phil Gartside must have regretted not getting rid of the previous manager sooner. If only Dougie had had a couple of extra months in charge, he could have started the revival that much sooner and maybe reached the play-offs and, who knows, promotion.
2. Biggest regret by the manager. After the mini-collapse of the defence when Craig Dawson was inexplicably allowed to return to West Brom, how Dougie must have regretted not ensuring that Craig was available for those crucial end of season games.
4. Worst Player. Tim Ream for the first half of the year and Jay Spearing for the second half.
5. Best example of good business management. ....errr.....
6. Worst example of good business management. Losing £50 million in one year.
7. Best young player to emerge in 2013. Josh Vela briefly brought a touch of youthful class to midfield before being cruelly sidelined through injury. He still remains our brightest prospect.
8. Best young player to sink without trace in 2013. It's a tie between several young prospects, all farmed out on loan to league one and two teams, where they are gaining 'experience' of kick and rush soccer, and how to handle big crowds of two to three thousand (sarcasm intended).
9. Best team to play at the Reebok Stadium. Real Betis. In a pre-season friendly Betis showed some real Primera Liga class in flashes, including a superbly taken free kick for their second goal.
10. Worst team to play at the Reebok Stadium. It would be churlish to say Bolton Wanderers, but they did come close and were certainly the worst Wanderers team to play there since the stadium opened in 1997.
