Atlanta United - A
Won the MLS Cup in just the second year of existance. Had the MVP, record breaking goal scorer, and played great and exciting soccer. Only reason this isn't an A+ is that we blew our chance at the Supporter's Shield when we blew it late and gave it away to New York Red Bulls.
Portsmouth FC - B+
Hard to watch at times because they didn't play great football, and really struggled in front of goal. Highlight was winning the trophy against Sunderland at Wembely. Very hard to watch the playoffs, especially considering the first leg Pompey were up a player and couldn't capitalize. Hopefully next year automatic promotion will be in the cards. As a fan, I did pretty bad this year, as it's hard as hell to watch them even with my subscribe to iFollow. Regardless, would still love to see them move to the Championship.
Eintracht Frankfurt - C+
First time following a German team, and what an exciting year to watch. They were absolutely stunning to watch, had a great Europa League run, beating teams like Inter Milan, Benfica, and took Chelsea to the limit. Maybe this grade is harsh due to all of that, but Frankfurt had a solid chance to make the Champions League for the first time, and fell apart at the end, losing to teams much worse than them, and maybe a lot of it will be gone, as some of the great players will be departing.
Parma FC - A
I loved Parma right after I loved Inter Milan. As the years have progressed, I have slowly enjoyed watching Parma more, mainly because the financial issues that they went through is something I would hate for any fan base, and they are a lot more of a local, city centric club with passionate fans.
And now they are back in Serie A, and the goal was to survive, and that's exactly what happened. Playing Inter twice is odd, as it's something I've been able to avoid, but not anymore, and whereas Parma beating Inter at the San Siro may be a highlight, it was more bittersweet to me. The last goal dramatics vs Juventus were the highlights for me, alongside the moment the final whistle blew against Fiorentina, and the look on the coaches, fans, players faces were so incredible. The raw emotion knowing that another year in Serie A is a reality.
