Bluebirds Disappoint in Rankings
Cardiff City's prolific striker Michael Chopra was ratedd the 5th best performer in the Championship according to the Actim Statistics.
The index tallies various in-game statistics including goals scored, shots on target, , passes, tackles, blocks and clearances while also taking into account fouls and offsides to give an accurate insight into all round contributions of individual players.
Whilst 21-goal Chopra made the top ten, there was a big jump to find the next best Cardiff City player in Joe Ledley (who led the rankings early on) in 45th position.
Other Cardiff City players who made the top 100 were:
Paul Parry in 50th position.
Goalkeeper Neil Alexander in 53rd (6th best goalkeeper).
Riccy Scimeca was 81st while Purse, McPhail and Steve Thompson made the 90s.
The Index seems heavily weighted towards strikers with 9 players of that position making up the top 10. There were omissions for Loovens and Johnson, who both missed chunks of the season but Kevin McNaughton was a notable absentee for the list despite impressing in his first season.
