What exactly does mid-table mean?

Does it mean finishing in 12th or 13th place?

How many points are needed for a side to finish in mid-table?

Are supporters ever happy or satisfied with a mid-table finish?

Before the start of a season the claim that a “mid-table finish”  is good enough is often overheard.

Based on the last 7 seasons in Division ONE mid-table means between 56 and 65 points.

Sides finishing in mid-table can expect to win 13-18 games while losing 13-21 games.
