Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger considers the 2011/12 campaign to have been the 'strangest' of his distinguished career.
The French tactician has spent the last 16 years in English football, but rarely has a season thrown up so many twists and turns.
Arsenal's own campaign has been something of a rollercoaster ride, with it possible that a top-three finish and qualification for the UEFA Champions League could make amends for an uncharacteristic slow start.
Wenger is hoping that will be the case, but appreciates that the unpredictable nature of the Premier League means anything is possible.
"It has been the strangest because there were changes throughout the season," said Wenger, who takes his side to West Brom on Sunday for a final day showdown.
"It looked first of all for us like we were battling relegation and then at the last game of the season we are battling for a Champions League position.
"Manchester City looked like they would cruise easy to the league and then suddenly they had lost it, and nobody understood quite why.
"After that, Manchester United looked like they had won it and we had all these things about when Man United are in the driving seat they do not give it away - suddenly they lose it again when Man City had basically given up, so it was a really strange season."
While there have been plenty of highs and lows at the Emirates this season, Wenger believes the experiences the Gunners have gone through as a group will only serve to make them stronger.
"What was interesting this season was the mental quality of the group was one of the best I have seen," he said.
"Secondly, the team has grown in quality during the season and the results in the second half have been much stronger.
"Overall, the exceptional season of Robin van Persie kept us above water in a period where he scored 30 goals in a season. That is something exceptional."
