Apparently we're the most clinical side in the top 5 (or was it 4?) divisions.

We've played 22 games against teams in the top half and taken 32 points. In 20 games against teams in the bottom half, we've taken 24 points. Go figure.

Also, it's a stat that goes back through last season and into the 16-17 season, but we've not had a player sent off for a straight red offence in our last 120 games.

Our record is on point spread is a little bizarre too.

20 from 11 against top 8.
18 from 16 against middle 8.
33 from 15 against bottom 8.

As you’d expect vs bottom 8 but the other two sections are odd.

Anyone else ever been promoted then relegated, then promoted again, then relegated again in four successive seasons? That was us 94-98, the four seasons prior to the famous Jimmy Glass goal.

Also, since the merger of divisions 3 north and south in 1958, the longest we've spent in a single division was the Old Second Division (i.e. current championship) at 9 years. We've not spent longer than six years at this level (this will be our fifth) so watch out for us next season (could go either way that one).

£10 on relegation. Thanks for the tip

In our 125 year history we've had 6 promotions and 4 relegations. We weren't relegated at all until 1985.
Speaking of promotion and relegation, and it's nothing to do with us, but one of the local sides around here, Gainsborough Trinity, suffered their first ever promotion/relegation in their entire history last season!

Whenever they've changed league's it's always been down to league restructures.

Wouldn't call them 'amazing' stats but...

Dean Lewington (at the grand old age of 34) has the most assists for a LB in the top four tiers of English football this season, and made his 700th career appearance in January.

According to transfermarkt.co.uk we have the highest market value squad in League Two (£6.12m) this season, which would also make us the 10th most valuable squad in League One - more valuable than Portsmouth. This is mainly due to us having Russell Martin, who according to that website has the highest market value in the league (£1.35m).

Please don’t bring up that site again, it’s utter rubbish.

You're right in that it's not accurate on an individual player basis, but I'd say the overall team values aren't too far off. Hard to disagree with where they rank the Prem and Championship teams overall values, so probably applies to L1/L2 as well. E.g. Sunderland top of L1 values which is obviously true.

But you're right, their individual player values especially are ridiculous.

Just had a quick out of curiosity, CJ Hamilton is at £68k despite the fact It’s heavily reported we rejected £750,000 in January.

Realistically most League two players aren’t worth a penny as clubs just poach them and advise them to run contracts down.

Actually it’s usually the players not worth anything that contracts run down.

Recentish big transfers off the top of my head, Grimes, Watkins at Exeter, Eisa from Cheltenham, Doidge (despite the turn of events) I think Ben Wilmot to Watford was big money, Bogle, Stockley - 7 right there!

Think i read somewhere that Danny Whitaker played his 1000th game for Macclesfield this season, that’s some going that.*











*If you’ve never read the non league section then you won’t know what the fuck I’m on about.

If you're going to try and be funny, at least get it right.

He made his 32,278th appearance for us just last week.

I think the old Wimbledon side of the late seventies had numerous promotions and relegations in successive seasons

As of a couple of weeks ago, each team at the top of the top 5 tiers of English football began with an L

(Liverpool, Leeds, Luton, Lincoln and Leyton Orient)... there are only 6 teams beginning with L in total in those 5 leagues (Leicester being the odd one out). Not amazing but a bit of a weird coincidence.

Then Norwich came along and fucked it all up.

A small price to pay for hopeful Leeds anguish.

We have played 21 games at home and away this season. We have scored two goals or more in just five home games but have achieved that feat in twelve away. (Goals scored 26 at home, 36 away). Our home form is mid-table, away it is top three.

Don't get me started on the number of home games where we have taken the lead but ended up drawing one apiece.
