Events

The Wednesday officially changed their name to Sheffield Wednesday prior to the start of this season.1

Blackpool claimed their only championship to date on the final day of the Division Two season, 3 May, with a goalless draw at Nottingham Forest. Runners-up Chelsea could have won the title themselves the same afternoon if they had won and Blackpool had lost, but the Londoners were defeated at Bury by a single goal. Blackpool forward, Jimmy Hampson, finished the season as the top goal scorer in England, with 46 goals in all competitions.2 According Moving The Goalposts by Rob Jovanovic the team of Sheffield Wednesday F.C. is statistically the greatest side English side in history.
