The Sky Bet Championship regular season is over, and what a campaign it was!

There were laughs, smiles and tears, with automatic promotion, Play-Off places and the relegation battles all going down to the final day.

At the end of the season, it is customary for people to collect statistics, and rank the teams based on a number of different things.
