The following tables show the number of points earned by teams during 2011.
As there are three teams promoted and four teams relegated from League One, seventeen sides spent the entirety of 2011 in the third tier. Of these teams it was League One play-off finalists Huddersfield Town that ended the year with the best record. It was only everyone’s favourite franchise MK Dons that won the same number of games during 2011.
It’s been a year to forget for the Saddlers as Walsall finish as the worst team to spend the whole of 2011 within the division (though Notts County lost the most games during the year). It’s notable that the side with the most draws in 2011 are the side with the best average points per game total, Huddersfield Town (20) and the team with the second most draws are the side with the worst average points per game total: Walsall. Each statistic tells its own story, it’s for you to unpick the bones from that one.
If you add all of the sides that have spent any time in League One during 2011 it’s 2010/2011 runners-up Southampton who have the best points per game record. It’s probably worth mentioning that despite teams such as Southampton, Brighton and Sheffield United only spending half a year in League One, Huddersfield still end the year as the side that lost the fewest games (only two during 2011). Relegated Swindon Town finish rock bottom of the table after being relegated and are now looking to bounce back from League Two at the first attempt under the stewardship of Italian nutball Paolo Di Canio.
