Yeovil Town feature badly in an aggregated league table compiled across the calendar year 2014 to cover all league results for English professional clubs. The statistics, produced by the Sporting Intelligence website cover all Premier League and Football League clubs, including the two sides relegated from the Football League, making up a total of 94 clubs that participated in those two competitions across the year. No cup matches are considered. The end result is that the Glovers are propped up by Blackpool, Hull City and Hartlepool United who all had worse records across the calendar year.
Blackpool just missed out on relegation at the tail end of the 2013-14 season, finishing in 20th place in the Championship table and they have followed that up by sitting nine points adrift of safety at the foot of the same table, making them nailed on to drop into League One at the end of this season.
Hartlepool are in an almost identical position at the foot of League Two. They also have only accrued 14 points this season, and have an eight point gap to make up at the bottom of the Football League if they are to avoid non-league football next season. Last season they finished in 19th place in League Two, just three points above the relegation zone, and so were already struggling to keep their place at that time.
Hull City lie currently in 17th place in the Premier League - kept above the dotted line on goal difference with just 16 points from 19 matches. Last season saw them finish in 16th place and just four points off relegation, getting 37 points from 38 games.
There is of course a slight bit of 'stating the obvious' about the statistics, in that with Hartlepool United, Yeovil Town and Blackpool the three teams are currently at the foot of each of the Football League divisional tables - that rule is broken in the Premier League due to the fact that the teams struggling at the foot of that table are two clubs who were promoted from the Championship at the end of last season who would have accrued far more points during last season. However, it provides a perspective upon why the year 2014 will probably be one to forget in many respects for Glovers fans.
