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…

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…

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…

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…

Reading 1 – 0 Town

Town travelled to the Madjeski knowing they would in for a tough afternoon. Reading, like Town, were yet to taste the bitterness of defeat at home so far this season. David Wagner picked a familiar looking starting XI and would watch his side start in typically explosive style when the onrushing Tommy Smith cut inside…

Town 2 – 1 QPR

The Terriers would play host to a wounded QPR following their 6-0 home defeat to Newcastle just days earlier. Town were also coming of the back of a defeat, although theirs much less embarrassing. Town would make 2 changes from the side that faced Brighton at the Amex, with David Wagner adding to home advantage…

Brighton 1 – 0 Town

If last night’s travelling Terriers were hoping to see flashes of stunning spectacle, they perhaps should have stayed in Huddersfield. As the lightning bolts lit up the West Yorkshire skyline, sadly the same can’t be said of events that unfolded down at the Amex. A match of few clear cut chances, the minutes ticked by…

Leeds 0 – 1 Town

Oggy Oggy Oggy. Mooy Mooy Mooy. Aaron Mooy was pinned to the centre of this fixture, even before a ball had been kicked, with Town fans nervously waiting to discover whether or not he would feature. Luckily for the blue and white army, David Wagner would give him a place in Saturday’s starting XI. This…

Town 1 – 0 Wolves

To use footballs oldest cliche, today’s match was most certainly a game of two halves. Town set up in their more recognisable 4-3-2-1 formation, with loanee Kasey Palmer being handed his first senior start. Jonathan Hogg was also reintroduced in a familiar looking team so far this season. As the blue and white army filtered…
