    Hello all,

    I’m posting this to whet your appetites (or maybe 5 people’s appetite) and also make sure I commit to what I am about to do.

    Last season @Hornet77 did the most amazing job (and best ever) of keeping us to date with all the stats.

    Sadly most of the posts depressed -but if it had been anything else then they would have been a charlatan.

    I’ve noticed they said they couldn’t do the stats this season. I would be more than happy to provide the forum with stats. And unless there are any complaints will do so very soon (ie less than one week).

    I won’t quite go to the extremes of @Hornet77 with player stats, but will do points and goals scored/conceded. I’ll obviously throw in some good looking but probably not needed graphs/charts.

    Again … thank you to @Hornet77 for last season, I’m not sure how you persisted with drudgery that was on offer

    Hello all,

    Here is a brief update. I haven’t finished all of the formatting etc. as I’m about to go on holiday and have run out of time – so I’m just throwing these up there in an unfinished format:

    Graph 1 – Points each season we’ve been promoted to the PL per game (up to 5 games)

    dotted line = via play-offs


    Graph 2 – Points each season we’ve been promoted to the PL per game (full season)


    Info Sheet – League position stats

    NB I could only find the last 2 championships online, so if anyone has a place I could fid league positions for older seasons that would be very useful

    Interestingly we’ve already conceded less goals than we did the WHOLE of last season.

    Rock solid.

    Was there a stats thread for the 2020/21 season? If there was, I don’t recall anything about it.

    It’s funny that not many people remember that season with much fondness despite a fair few records being broken.

    To get the league table of your choice go to 11v11.com/league-tables/ . You can enter the any date and get the league table at that date.
    For example, put in 23 October 1948 Division 3 South and you will get:

    I chose a random date. Not a good one. Sorry!

    Can someone confirm if we win this Saturday it’s our best Championship start ever or best start ever ever ever ?

    EDIT or none of the above , need to look this up

    Just done a bit of research and the only second tier season that would beat our start (if we win on Saturday ) would be 2007/2008 after being relegated from EPL where we won 5 out of first 6 games under Boothroyd .

    In 2014/15 we accrued 12 points from 6 games with 4 wins and 2 losses .

    Unlees of course there is some outlier season where we started off brilliantly but ended atrociously .

    That would be 2000/01 under GT. We started with 5 wins, 1 draw (5 wins and a defeat in 07/08) and in fact reached 12 wins and 3 draws for an insane 39 points from the first 15 games before crashing and burning to miss out even on the playoffs. :(

    After 10 games that season we had won 9 and drawn 1. We were still second as Fulham had won all their 10 games.

    The dreadful Sheffield Wednesday home game was the catalyst. The defence wasn't upgraded. Despite being second and unbeaten the atmosphere was rubbish and we got outplayed and never really got our groove back.

    Hoping no history repeats on Saturday.

    The season where Chris Kamara (I think) said everyone else in the league was playing for 2nd place

    and then we played West Brom at home…..

    I don’t think anyone has got to the bottom of what went wrong that season, apart from maybe GT and the players. Could it be that we recovered our good form from 1998/99 towards the end of 1999/00, only to be eventually found out? IIRC we only picked up one point against the top teams (the chaotic 3-3 against WBA) after the unbeaten run, but we did put on the odd really good performance (Norwich and Forest at home, Gillingham) while dropping countless points to struggling sides, so the potential to reach the top 6 was still there.

    There was a theory at the time that the team, who hadn't been playing brilliantly despite the results, were spooked by being easily beaten by Man U's reserves in the League Cup then panicked and fell apart. The first of the string of defeats was a week later.
