Thirteen Premier League goals came from substitutes - the most in the Premier League this season.

 

The Academy team set a new wins record in achieving second place in Group B. 10 consecutive victories between 1st December 2007 and 15th March 2008 helped the team to 59 points from their 28 games, also a new high for the Under-18s.
