Wasteful Crewe Most Entertaining

Crewe threw away 35 points from winning positions this season - the most of any team in the division. In fact, had Crewe hung to those 35 points, they would have had a total of 77, which would have seen Crewe finish in the play-offs. Crewe fans were, however, offered the consolation of seeing the most goals of any supporters in the division this season, with a total of 143 goals in Crewe's league games this season - an average of over 3 per game.

Crewe also had the fewest clean sheets in the division - a miserly total of just 4. These defensive problems were apparent throughout the season, as Crewe conceded 86 league goals - 15 more than Brighton who conceded the second most. Madjid Bougherra made a big difference to the side, with Crewe conceding an average of 0.9 goals per game with him in the side, compared to 2.1 without Bougherra. Crewe did, however, manage to score the 9th most goals in the division - 46 in total, the same amount as 5th placed Leeds and 7 more than 7th placed Wolves. Furthermore, Crewe scored the 5th highest amount of home goals of any side in the division. Crewe had the 5th fewest shots on goal of any side in the division, though they had the best disciplinary record by some distance. Crewe's highest attendance this season was local derby against Stoke, where 8,942 fans were present, though the attendance of 5,686 at home to Ipswich was the lowest of any Championship fixture this season. Crewe's average attendance this season was 6,731 - the lowest in the division.

Steve Jones ended up with the 3rd most assists in the division - 12, as well as having the 20th most shots of any player in the division. Meanwhile, Billy Jones ended the season as the top scorer with 8 goals. Crewe used 31 players this season, the 11th highest in the division. Billy Jones had the worst disciplinary record of any Crewe player this season, though Gareth Taylor was fourth in that list despite having played far fewer games.
