During the 2000–01 English football season, Barnsley F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

With Craig Hignett and Nicky Eaden departing, manager Dave Bassett brought in inexperienced Carl Regan and Lee Jones to bolster the squad in the hopes that Barnsley would be able to finally regian promotion to the Premiership. However, Barnsley's increasingly rapid turnover of managers was to continue during the season with Bassett leaving in December, a surprise decision to most.[1] Nigel Spackman was brought in to replace Bassett,[2] and the team eventually finished in sixteenth position, above Sheffield Wednesday by virtue of goal difference.
