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…

Viva La Revolution

On November 9th 2015, Huddersfield Town appointed David Wagner and from day one, every single Town supporter believed he was the right the man to bring success to the club.  Almost immediately Wagner revived an optimistic mindset that had long been forgotten in this quiet little corner of West Yorkshire. It’s one thing for an…

You only sing when you’re winning

With the club backing supporters association ‘the North Stand Loyal’ and their tenure of, for now, at least half of the south stand in an attempt to increase the atmosphere down at the John Smith’s, I take a look at some of my favourite football chants from years gone by, sadly these are not exclusive to…

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…

August Player of the Month

With the start we’ve had, I could have picked from a whole host of players; Elias Kachunga has hit the ground running in English football, Christopher Schindler has shored up the defence, Danny Ward has not put a hand wrong or Michael Hefele just for being Michael Hefele. Instead, the award goes to a player…

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…

Pre-Match Predictions – Wolves

The August bank holiday may signal the end of the summer but don’t worry the football is coming thick and fast. We’re already 4 weeks into the Championship season and haven’t they just flown by. Like most football writers I’ve polished my crystal ball and I am GOING to predict the outcome of this weekend’s…

Town 2 – 1 Barnsley

Without doubt when the fixtures were released this one will have caught the eye of many town fans, myself included. However, as previously mentioned on a separate post and once eloquently put during a half-time team talk at Shrewsbury by Neil Warnock “you, you’re in f**king Latvia.” Why yes Neil. I am in Latvia, Riga…

Not For Sale

Rumour after rumour. “Bid” after “bid”. £7m, £8m, £9m. Of course, I’m talking about the speculation surrounding the departure of Nahki Wells to Derby, Norwich or Fulham. You name the club; I’ll show you the tenuous transfer link. As journalists and punters alike are becoming increasingly desperate to be the first to ‘break’ the latest…
