Fabregas rates Chelsea's season a seven or eight; what do you rate it?

A most scientific exercise to assign a single number to an entire season.

This season's trophy haul is fairly impressive, as it should be by default whenever you win the Premier League.  Adding the League Cup is a decent bonus on top of all that.  It's certainly not the flashiest cup competition out there, but it's better than nothing.  Both trophies were only our fifth ever in either competition.

But there were obvious disappointments as well, starting with the shocking 4-2 loss at home to Bradford City in the FA Cup, which was then followed by a lackluster showing against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round of 16, when we were eliminated on away goals against 10 men.  It is exactly because of these disappointments that Cesc Fàbregas rates Chelsea's season just a seven or an eight.

"We had a great season. If I have to give it a score, I'd give a seven or eight. The only downside was going out to PSG."

Our leading assist-getter has set his sights firmly on making up for that last bit.

"I haven't won a Champions League yet, but I want to. A few days ago I didn't have a Premier League title and you could say that I prefer that."

While technically there are still two games left, the season, for all intents and purposes, is over.  We know what Cesc rates it.  What do you rate it?
