The Yugoslavian's early promise last term was cruelly wiped out by a fractured cheekbone he sustained in September.
That serious injury kept him out of Yugoslavia's crucial World Cup qualifiers - a campaign that would end in disappointment.
Goran briefly returned in November only to suffer a thigh strain in December. That kept him out for another month and then knee problems ruled him out of the Worthington Cup Final and the rest of the season.
"It was a frustrating season for me," explained the 29-year-old.
"After all the years I have played professional football, to come to to England, play pre-season games, the first games of the season and then the injuries came.
"I'm very happy with everything that is happening around me and I cannot wait to play a major part next season. If the players can stay fit we have enormous potential."
So what did he learn in his first year in England? "I have learned a lot about English football, this club, our supporters and the potential of this club.
"I just want to be fit. When I am fit I am not worried about anything. I just want to be training again and if the gaffer picks me, then that is what I came for."
Goran Bunjevcevic is determined to 'play a major part' in our quest for success next season.
