The 72

Fans of Huddersfield Town will not just simply accept that life outside the Premier League is to become “the norm” again, following two seasons in the top flight. They expect more than mediocrity and a nice family atmosphere.

Since the appointment of former manager David Wagner in November 2015, The Terriers took on a new direction, a new way of thinking as a club, with Premier League football the goal.

Once that goal was reached, odds of the club remaining in the top flight were very slim, with the difficulties in attracting players of the correct calibre proving to be a huge issues and only good old team spirit keeping them going, however, a fabulous effort saw them overcome the odds and avoid the dreaded drop.

Part-way through the clubs second season though, Wagner (47) resigned from his post, totally out of the blue, stating a rest from football as the reason, leaving loyal fans in the mire in the midst of a second successive relegation dog fight.

Wagner was to be replaced by another young, up and coming manager in Jan Siewert (36) from Borussia Dortmund II, giving the fans hope of an upturn in form.

Unfortunately for the fans, there was no such upturn, with the club succumbing to one of the worst team performances in Premier League history under Siewert’s stewardship, eventually being relegated with time to spare.

Huddersfield are now underway in their Championship campaign, with their form not much different to last season, taking only a point from their opening two fixtures and being dumped out of the Carabao Cup in the first round after losing at home to League One Lincoln City, causing the fans to vigorously question Siewert and his position.
