What happened in the 2006-2007 Season?
To give you a feel of how the footballing world looked like back then, let’s look at what happened in the 2006-2007 season which let you feel the nostalgia!
2006-2007 season was the time where…
… in the Summer of 2006, Italy lifted the FIFA World Cup trophy. Who doesn’t remember the Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt attack on Marco Materazzi in the 110th minute becoming the scapegoat as Italy won on penalties despite converting a lovely Panenka penalty early on in the match.
… talking about the WC 2006, the best player became Zinedine Zidane, while Miroslav Klose became the top scorer with 5 goals.
… the Ballon D’Or was awarded to Fabio Cannavaro
… in February 2007, the English FA Barclays Premiership was rebranded to simply Premier League, with the name, logo and typeface which we know it as today.
… current Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær had his last season before heading to retirement and a managerial career.
… Sir Alex Ferguson marked his 20 years in charge anniversary by guiding Manchester United to their ninth Premier League title.
… on the other side of Manchester, Man City had their last months as a public traded company before billionaires would take over.
… Didier Drogba helped Chelsea to a second place by becoming the top scorer of Premier League with 20 goals.
… Chelsea would go about winning both the FA Cup and the League Trophy. The manager Jose Mourinho steered the club to a possible Quadruple until 1 May, but ended at 2nd place in the Premier League. Perhaps not surprising since Mourinho was the manager, but they had the most clean sheets that season with 22!
… and what about Arsenal? 4th in the Premier League, missing out of FA Cup in the 5th round and reaching the round of 16 in the CL. You know, some things never change *winkwink* A minor curiosity about Arsenal as we got not as much to report about them and their achievements in the 2006-07 season was that the new Emirates stadium opened in the summer of 2006.
… FC Barcelona who won the Champions League of 2005-2006 season went into a transitional period under the helm of Frank Rijkaard despite featuring Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Carles Puyol in their ranks… And Lionel Messi was only 19 years at the time!
… The Brazilian Joga Bonito was highly evident with Ronaldinho at FC Barcelona, Kaka at A.C Milan, Robinho and Ronaldo at Real Madrid, thrilling the world with their flair, vision and technique.
… the Portuguese Ronaldo (Cristiano) was just 21 and played a major part in Manchester United. He was not only awarded the PFA young Player of the Year but also the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award and the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award, becoming the first and last to receive all three awards in one season!
… the English National squad was one of the better with Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Michael Owen, Frank Lampard and John Terry in their prime of their life. Include wonderkid Wayne Rooney and legend David James… England had deserved so much more this World Cup than going out on penalties for Portugal.
… last but not least, the Italian league was personally in the spotlight with Alessandro del Piero at Juventus, Francesco Totti at AS Roma, Filippo Inzaghi and Andrea Pirlo at A.C. Milan, while you had some of the best defenders in the world with the leadership of Alessandro Nesta and Fabio Cannavaro.
