It has to be Gareth Bale. Everyone knows my feelings on the man who I said was better than Cristiano Ronaldo earlier this term; he can dribble, pass, shoot, head, run and has just about everything in his game. He has become one of the most influential players in the Premier League.

Signing of the Season

Michu, without a doubt. £2million for 22 goals in all competitions says it all really and he has given Swansea more of a cutting edge than they had last season. As for worst signing of the season, Maicon has done nothing at Man City, but the worst of the lot was QPR's acquisition of Jose Bosingwa.

Manager of the Season

Sir Alex Ferguson has done tremendously well in his final year, but I am going to go for Michael Laudrup. Everyone wondered how Swansea would fare when Brendan Rodgers left for Liverpool, but Laudrup, in his maiden season in English football, has led the team to the Capital One Cup and a top-half finish.

Team of the Season

I'm going to have to go for Swansea again. They play football in such a crisp way, despite operating on a small budget, and have never looked out of their depth in the Premier League. I also want to mention West Ham; I thought they were nailed on for relegation but, like Swansea, secured a top-ten finish.

Game of the Season

Arsenal's 7-3 win over Newcastle in December; the game had everything - apart from good defending! Arsenal showed how ruthless they can be when at their best and Theo Walcott proved he could play as a central striker by netting a hat-trick.

Goal of the Season

Loic Remy's goal against Wigan was exceptional; he raced on to a pass from Stephane Mbia and despite side-footing the ball he managed to generate so much power and blast it past Joel Robles in the Wigan goal. It was tremendous technique.

Check back tomorrow when Soccer Saturday pundit Matt le Tissier will give his verdict on the campaign...
