It would probably be fair to say that Huddersfield’s victory at Molineux in November was the high point of a disastrous season.
David Wagner got his tactics right that day with his men deservedly emerging comfortable winners.
The Wolves performance was so bad, it convinced Nuno we needed an extra body in midfield – a move which has taken his team to a whole new level.
I suppose we can thank the Terriers for that in some perverse way, but that shouldn’t be at the expense of what will hopefully be another strong showing tomorrow.
They haven’t won a single game since leaving Molineux, with 13 defeats and a draw all but ensuring they’ll be back in the Championship next season.
A conscious uncoupling with David Wagner in the middle of January felt like the decisive nail in the coffin and new man Jan Siewert hasn’t been able to halt the slide.
Like Wagner he was recruited from Borussia Dortmund and the hopes will be he can rebuild a squad capable of making an immediate return next season.
This season, there’s really only pride left to play for and avoiding unwanted records. Fortunately, Derby’s all-time low points tally of 11 isn’t under threat.
It was a typical hard luck story at Newcastle on Saturday, with captain Tommy Smith sent off (he’s suspended tomorrow) and two second half goals further adding to their pain.
The head coach is demanding a response for what he felt was a lack of effort in the
The home end
Some comments lifted from the match thread (humorously titled: ‘Our next home defeat’) on a popular Huddersfield town forum.
Have we managed just one point since we played Wolves away? Didn’t expect that leaving Wolverhampton, we looked like a premier league team that
Have we ever lost 8 home games in a row before? Could be another record to go for.
I wonder how many will bother turning up. The way I feel this weekend I might not bother, after all what’s the point? I can’t face another 90 minutes watching depoitre lumbering around up front let alone the rest of the sub standard shyte.
Not sure if you were at St James Pk on Saturday but we were rank, you could actually smell the stench up in the clouds where we were. Was in 2 minds after that whether to bother as clearly the players weren’t on Saturday but we’ll be there. We will need a superhuman performance from the team to get anything from the Wolves game though. We play like we did on Saturday & I would not be surprised at some disquiet on the terraces.
It gets a bit boring talking about the lineup as the system feels almost set in stone, all the players slot in perfectly and it’s really just about them producing.
With a relatively quick turnaround from
Credit to Cav and Traore at Bournemouth who I felt gave us some proper impetus in the attack. One of them could be in line for a start should Jota – who himself had a fine first half at Dean Court – not be risked.
There’s a new leader at the top of the Prediction League table with Wolvo Dave edging into a narrow lead after collecting a maximum at Bournemouth.
Well done also to Sea Pigeon, Woodend Wolf, Teddy Eley, Marin Wolf, Mildenhall Wolf and PeteRobbo for scooping all three points by correctly forecasting the 1-1 draw.
