Premier League season in a sentence - how did your team do this term?

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.

3. Arsenal

Although Arsenal recovered impressively from a dreadful start, they still appear perennially three players and one year away from a credible title challenge.

4. Manchester United

United achieved the minimum requirement of a top four finish but will be disappointed those three defeats over the past month prevented them from finishing higher.

5. Tottenham

Another transitional season undermined by a lack of trusted players but brightened by Harry Kane, a cup final and derby wins over Chelsea and Arsenal.

6. Liverpool

A lack of strikers and any discernible value from a huge summer spend means the 20-year cycle of "Challenge/Failure/Transition" goes tediously on.

7. Southampton

The nightmare that never was: after a summer of disarray Saints went from everyone's relegation tip to the brink of Europe.

8. Swansea

Rookie manager silences critics as Swans soar to record-setting season.

9. Stoke

Another impressive season but one that will leave fans wondering how much better it could have been had they not lost Bojan Krkic to injury.

10. Crystal Palace

Close to being the best era in the Palace's history with cult hero Alan Pardew in charge.

11. Everton

High expectations never got off the ground in a season of errors and steady disappointment -- even the once-promising European run ended in embarrassing fashion.

12. West Ham

A classic campaign of two halves combining promise, excitement and anticipation with boredom, disillusionment and frustration.

13. West Brom

Tony Pulis saving West Brom from relegation was a triumph for pragmatism and defensive organisation.

14. Leicester

A season of ostrich rants and thrashing Manchester United -- Nigel Pearson masterminded a shock survival bid, inspired by Esteban Cambiasso.

15. Newcastle

Embarrassing, infuriating and nowhere near good enough.

16. Sunderland

Dick Advocaat instilled just enough desire and belief in a squad with limited quality to emulate the great escapes of Paolo Di Canio and Gus Poyet.

17. Aston Villa

Tim Sherwood saved previously goal-shy Aston Villa from relegation and rediscovered the art of scoring, securing Premier League survival and an FA Cup final appearance.

18. Hull City

A season of missed opportunities and regrets for Hull City's band of underachievers and the heavy punishment is a grim return to the Championship.

19. Burnley

Relegation is always disappointing but Burnley should take heart from some excellent performances against the Premier League's brightest lights and they will be back.

20. QPR

Relegated with a possible £60 million FFP fine -- great new philosophy, though.
