It's time to dust off your imaginary dinner jacket and celebrate another amazing season in the Premier League. The Bullies are my unofficial awards to recognise the players that have made this topsy-turvy season worth watching.

The season is over and after a roller-coaster of a final day of a topsy-turvy year, Wolves are safe. My nervous are shot though after the most excruciating and exhilarating final day of a Premier League season in its history.

Five teams were battling for survival on the final day and four of them spent time in the relegation zone during the 90 minutes.

For months, every time Wolves won or lost and Mick McCarthy was asked about the league position, he responded the same way. “May 22nd,” was his stock answer and come the final whistle on that date, his side had secured survival.

It's time to invest in some brown trousers because it has all come down to one game to save our status in the top flight of English football. At Molineux next weekend we will witness the most important 90 minutes in the club’s recent history.

There are all sorts of connotations with other clubs’ results on the final day of the season but we are one point clear of the relegation zone after the win at Sunderland so what we must do is clear. Win the match and Wolves will be a Premier League outfit again next season.

Wow - how we needed that result! An excellent performance, victory over our most bitter rivals and a point clear of the relegation zone with two matches to play.

Although technically the Tescos couldn't have relegated us today, if they had won if would have been a big nail in our coffin. That cranked up the pressure to a new level at Molineux and the lads responded brilliantly.
