The Stat-Smith provides some of the EFL’s best stats after a dramatic season in England…
Leeds United’s season may have ended in disappointment, but Chris Wood was a shining light for Garry Monk’s side, scoring 27 goals. In fact, Wood scored a higher percentage of his team’s goals (44%) than any other Championship player.
Party for Portsmouth
Portsmouth sealed the League Two title on the last day of the season, and amazingly, it was the only day Pompey spent at the top of the table. Doncaster had spent 129 on tops, and Plymouth also led the pack for 102 days.
Portsmouth also became the fifth club to win all of England’s top four leagues.
Anthony Knockaert enjoyed a stunning season for Brighton. The French playmaker was involved in more goals than any other midfielder in the Championship in 2016/17 (15 goals, 8 assists) this season for the Seagulls.
It has been a difficult few years for Blackburn, who suffered relegation on the last day of the Championship season. The Lancashire club now have the unwanted record of becoming the first Premier League champions to be relegated to League One (they were also the first to be relegated from the top flight).
Sharing is Caring
Nottingham Forest had 20 different players score for them in the Championship in 2016/17; the most of any side.
Free flowing Fulham
Fulham enjoyed a fine Championship season, and still have a chance of promotion via the playoffs after finishing sixth in the table. The London club had more shots (711) and scored more goals (85) than any other team in the Championship this season.
