Memory Lane: Adam Clayton’s Beard

As Town languished at the wrong end of the Championship table just a few points keeping them from the ‘danger zone’ the blue and white army had little to cheer about. What they did have was Adam Clayton and his beard. Football over the years has boasted some outstanding facial furniture. In the 80’s we…

Memory Lane: Two loves combine

For as long as my girlfriend and I have been together, every game I have attended, I’ve tentatively asked “Do you want to come with me?” to which a polite “no, I’m ok” would generally be the reply. I’ve never hidden my love for Town, or has it ever been an issue. I understand that…

Memory Lane: Damien Johnson

In August 2010, Huddersfield Town under the management of Lee Clark, signed experienced midfielder Damien Johnson from Plymouth Argyle, initially on loan with a view to something more permanent. Johnson was tough in the tackle and seemingly possessed the lung power of a galloping distance runner, his all-action style was exactly what Clark and Huddersfield…

Fulham 5 – 0 Town

History very much repeated itself as Huddersfield Town extended their dismal record at Craven Cottage during an unforgettable afternoon in the capital. The hosts ran riot scoring 5 without reply as they dominated proceedings. Defeats in the Championship or football in general, are forgivable, but performances, first witnessed at Deepdale and then again on Saturday…

Memory lane: “The Swan”

Huddersfield Town is a club proud of its history, even with pragmatic Head Coach David Wagner and entrepreneurial Chairman Dean Hoyle, the club’s heritage is still a strong part of its identity. In a semi-regular feature, I will be looking back over the years reviewing my memories of following this wonderful football club, for those…

Town 1 – 0 Derby County

As “the bubbles burst”, “the fairytale’s over” and other such clichés were being foolishly whispered around the John Smiths, the teams were announced, and saw David Wagner ring the changes in a refreshed side following their midweek defeat. Fans favourite Hefele was handed his second start replacing Skipper Hudson, Whitehead would take the captaincy and…

PNE 3 – 1 Town

A bullish Preston North End muzzled the Terriers in a frantic first half ensuring David Wagner did not get the Birthday present he wanted, as Town suffered their second successive defeat. As the travelling fans were still taking their seats, Mark Hudson was adjudged to have fouled the dynamic Callum Robinson, if Town knew anything…

Town 0 – 1 Sheff Wed

Having to suffer the torture of the international break the Sky Bet Championship returned to the John Smiths Stadium, where Town welcomed both Sheffield Wednesday and the Sky Cameras. If plaudits have gone to David Wagner and his players for their efforts on the field, then the same must go to Sean Jarvis and his…

September Player of the Month

Town continue to be hard-working, energetic and exciting in their performances and as the season concluded its second month, I was given another headache when I faced picking my Player of the Month for September. After a little deliberation this month’s award goes Huddersfield Town’s record signing, German Centre-back, Christopher Schindler. If not for Aaron…

Ipswich 0 – 1 Town

The early season success, optimism and excitement that the Terriers are currently enjoying is in stark contrast to the fortunes of their hosts. David Wagner would reintroduce Mark Hudson and Chris Lowe to his defensive ranks following their one match bans, in what resembled a more common looking back line for Town. With the experienced…

Town 2 – 1 Rotherham

Town would continue their winning strike in front of the home fans, with a Jekyll and Hyde style performance. Rotherham were not lacking in will but were lacking in any real quality. The difference between the teams and their subsequent league positions was rather noticeable. When David Wagner spent the summer building a squad, demanding…
