Watch: Sky's End-Of-Season Montage Returns To Spine-Tingling Form After A Barren Spell

Watch: Sky's End-Of-Season Montage Returns To Spine-Tingling Form After A Barren Spell
By Gavan Casey Updated

Surely even the most cynical of football fans, though fully aware - and weary - of the freight train-like, Sky Sports-led hype machine we indulge in from August to May, couldn't say no to a decent end-of-season montage.

But ever since Sky's 2008/2009 tribute set to The Temper Trap's 'Sweet Disposition' brought out the goosebumps seven years ago, such montages have invariably flattered to deceive due to some utterly forgetful seasons and extremely dodgy soundtrack decisions (the debacle of 'Millionaires' by The Script in 2014 springs to mind - sometimes even while I sleep).

In fairness, it would have taken a special kind of idiot to make a balls of this season's entry, what with nine months of low-quality football and rip-roaring entertainment resulting in arguably the greatest sporting story ever told, along with relegation for two established Premier League clubs, the bizarre implosion of Chelsea, and the emergence of Tottenham as a relatively serious Premier League entity.

Plus, you know, there's been the Jurgen Klopp effect, West Ham and Dimitri Payet, Sunderland's great escape at Newcastle's expense, and so much more - all of which has been amalgamated into one cracking review by Sky.

Even if you've 'fallen out of love with the modern game' as many tend to in this day and age, it's difficult not to sit back and enjoy this while looking forward to Bournemouth's title challenge next season.

Arguably the finest end-of-season montage since that famous '08/09 effort, with some wonderful camera angles perfectly encapsulating the thrills and spills of a highly entertaining season, regardless of your affiliation.

The song, as many of you will be aware, is Mumford & Sons' 'Believe' - a bold move which seemed to pay off. Perhaps 'Underdog' or 'Fire' by Kasabian in light of Leicester's success were considered too cliché. But fair play to Sky Sports' montage department, because they've really come up trumps this year.

Thankfully, the Euros will nicely bridge the gap between now and August.
