The story of 2020-21

At the end of the season 2020-21, here are the significant risers and fallers:

  • Sunderland in 8th place will be overtaken by Chelsea and Spurs next season
  • League founders Bolton Wanderers poor form has dragged them down two places below Sheffield Utd and Middlesbrough. They are likely to be overtaken by Leicester City next season – the Foxes have already leapfrogged Birmingham City and are pulling away from local rivals Nottingham Forest
  • Another founding team Notts County are also struggling – they have dropped a place behind Norwich City, and are likely to drop into the all time third tier in the next few seasons. Bury are also now in free fall.
  • Barrow are back in the league for the first time since 1972, and may now crawl away from dropping out of the top 100 teams.
  • Wycombe Wanderers now have a mean placing that just takes them up into the league – their average placing now is 92.35.
  • The best story, however, is Derby County and Wolves. They now have EXACTLY the same average league placing – both mean and median. And as they are both founder clubs this is a statistical certainty.

    1. Hi Paul, I’ve got the new averages for 2021, and will soon have for 2022, but I’m having trouble uploading a screen grab. When I figure it out. Thanks for your patience.

    2. Hi Paul, I’ve now updated the table for 2022, and remembered how to convert something so massive to a jpeg. If you go to the home page you’ll see the summary, and a link to the full table. Thanks for your patience and your interest. Have a great day, and hope your team does well next season 🙂

  1. Hi Mr Jeremy.

    I LOVE your site, as a huge fan of timeless statistics^^.

    And what make me happy (I would have said “turn me on”, but..I have not an huge database of english synonyms), is that the method you use is 99% the same I used (I didn’t create a website, just my open office calc files).

    The only difference is I give 100 pts for every seasons. No privileges for Liverpool ^^.

    As you, I guess, I miss the huge swedish site full of all-time tables 🙁

    I have the vague project to build a website (I have found a point system available for every sport, competitions, etc.) but I’m too lazy and procrastinator (procastinators are people which have such perfect projects that it discourage me to start with). (considering on top of final ranking, I would like to put decennal tables, records of podiums, annual changes in top 20, top 10, top 3 etc…)

    I am also a fan of english football (even if it is now less fresh as it was in old time of dirty Leeds, crazy gang, etc.)

    My favorites english clubs ? Those who were brillants long time ago (Preston, Huddersfield, Wolverhampton -even with their ugly orange shirt…-, Bury, the Wanderers, the Sheffields clubs, Sunderland…and above all, BLACKBURN : only england can produce a club wich win something 80 years after^^), those which have a fantastic name (Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion, QPR…) and…the heart-club of my bro-in-law (NUFC).

    I have too a crush for Chelsea and its lovely stadium, the “fucking disgrace” and the 2012 saga.

    I can’t bear Manure, Liverpool, Tottenham, West Ham.

    I have (little crush) for one-time underdogs (Coventry, Wimbledon, Luton, Leicester, Norwich, Ipswich…) and for Plymouth (because too few english clubs use green as color… Used with boring red/blue)

    Have a nice day. Hope you’ll maintain this site
