Congrats, you must be buzzing after a thoroughly miserable few years!

Gutted. Absolutely gutted. Obviously David Wagner felt it was the right decision and the club felt it was the right decision, but there's a lump in my throat. How I wish it could have been Wagner pulling off one last miracle (to go with the previous two).

Thank you, David Wagner. Three years where you made grown men cry tears of joy and make even the most stalwart cynic believe in magic. Huddersfield Town will never be the same again, and it's all thanks to you. Wherever you go next, I wish you every success in the world.


Great post! I can imagine all Huddersfield fans agree.

Who do the fans want next? A short term option who may be able to keep you up (huge task that though.....might even be beyond Big Sam) or a longer term option, even if you get relegated?

Was hoping we'd be able to hang on. Quite confident for Tuesday though if you field a similar line up, Rafa will surely only be thinking about your game with Cardiff next weekend.

United 1-0 up at Spurs after an hour. Great ball from Pogba for the goal.

I wonder if all the pundits still cant see City slipping up this season?


3 defeats out of 4, never thought they'd go on a run like that this season. Next Thursday's game will be interesting. Win that and you should start to believe...

Inter were always going to bottle it against PSV, it's so typically Inter, especially with Spalletti in charge.

Aye, thought the two red card decisions yesterday were both really poor. Mounié's where there was absolutely no malice or aggression in the challenge and also Capoue's where both players had a foot on the ball after both going in for the challenge, and his studs happened to roll over the ball, again no danger of injuring the opponent.

Chelsea 1-0 up v Fulham, just after HT.

Return of the PL tomorrow, crunch game down the bottom with Ranieri's Fulham v Southampton. I'll always stick up for Hughes given the job he did here but yeah, if they have one or two more bad results he'll be in big trouble.....

Lopetegui sacked - no surprise. What a terrible few months for him. Interesting to see who they get next.

Arsenal going well. Expectations for this season VP? Get back into the top 4 or are you starting to aim higher?

We beat Leeds at the weekend, good result and we've adapted well back to life in the Championship. There's nothing to fear in this league, we shouldn't write off targeting a top 6 finish even if it might be just beyond us this season. All credit to Tony Mowbray though, done a great job.

Brighton 1-0 West Ham, almost HT.

Interesting game Sunday, Liverpool-City. Liverpool certainly know how to beat them and City haven't won there for yonks. Liverpool have had some difficult games though recently and City are probably coming into it in better form, Liverpool's front three haven't clicked yet either this season - though it wouldn't be a surprise if they did on Sunday!

Villa should get Big Sam in - he might not be a popular choice with the fans but he'd get them promoted. I've seen Moyes is favourite but he's been a failure in his last few jobs, they'd have probably been better off sticking with Bruce.

We've made a decent start back to life in the Championship, undefeated with two wins and three draws. The fixture list has been relatively kind although we did beat Brentford at the weekend who seem pretty well-fancied to have a good season.

Thought Mourinho and United might have ground out a 1-0 win last night (also bearing in mind Spurs' poor record there) but it does look like they really are in a mess.

Can't see him being there too much longer..

Game of the night so far seems to be at Carlisle who welcome Blackburn, some cracking goals for both sides!


Indeed, Dack's second in particular was quality!

In other news, what about Malcolm? Do Roma fans still want him? Pleading with Bordeaux not to complete their transfer of him so he can try get a move to Barcelona. I'm sure @BR. will have some thoughts there!


Not gonna lie, I've never seen the guy play before haha.....he's obviously decent though. Already signed Kluivert, Pastore going forward plus the players from last season, so hopefully it won't be too much of a problem.

At least you haven't just spent £67m on a very average goal keeper.


Alisson isn't very average. He might have had only one season as first-choice at Roma, but he was quality.

£67m is pretty crazy yep (though I'd have been tempted to turn it down as I'm sick of Roma selling a Pjanic, Salah, Alisson etc each summer).

Although not as crazy as £50m for Richarlison would be, that would almost put me off football....

Only the 3rd time in my life we've won a knockout game at the world cup.


Same, crazy.

Sweden will be another tight game I think. Could be 1-0 either way via a set-piece.

Can't believe the Swedish sub gave that free kick away, terrible lunge in the very last minute. Germany will be fine to go through now, as runners-up though most likely so they could well be facing Brazil.

Fuck Kyiv and UEFA, what an absolute shit place to have a final.

That being said, plane to Poland & 20 hour coach booked, couldn't say no!


Enjoy! As you say, gotta be done.

City first team to get 100 points in top division history.....fair play!

Swansea down without a fight, Chelsea's capitulation wasn't that surprising but well done to Newcastle.........and Salah breaks the record for most goals in a 38 game PL season.

Our technical deficiencies going forward may have limited our quality of football at times, but by heck that defending over the last two games has been incredible. Strangely, we were never really tested by Manchester City but last night it was proper bodies on the line, last-ditch, do-or-die stuff. The scramble that led to Lössl's save would have been a goal against any other side, but this isn't any other side. It's an incredible side, of character and desire and heart. Of never giving up, of no limits. What a team. What a season.

Also, Carlos Carvalhal will be sick of us on Wednesday nights in May. Last season we kept him down, this season we've sent the poor sod down. Kinda feel sorry for the bloke.


Congrats, delighted you've stayed up. You deserve it too, two excellent displays in the last few days. I know it doesn't mean quite as much now but you must fancy your chances on Sunday too, looking at Arsenal's dreadful away form.

It wasn't long ago Swansea were about 14th and looked safe. They've really gone off the boil last few weeks and look pretty toothless going forward. Carvalhal is leaving at the end of the season, it's been announced today.

Southampton pretty much safe, delighted for Hughesy.

Swansea are seriously struggling for goals. Stoke are dire but I wouldn't even be that confident backing Swansea to beat them at home. I expect Huddersfield will get beat at Chelsea but wouldn't be surprised if they get a point or something v Arsenal. Gonna be interesting!

Kane has been a special sort of shite after returning from injury


Bodes well for the World Cup....

Last gasp equaliser for Everton v Southampton. Huge game on Tuesday, Swansea v Southampton.

That might be that with our last few games. Just to not be bottom is an achievement to be fair, considering the quality in our squad. Not that I'd write us off with our habit of pulling together for one final push - beat Arsenal on the last day and we will survive, which would be a frankly astonishing achievement considering the low base we started from when compared to everyone else in the division. But to do that we need more quality on the wings in particular. Not Quaner's fault he isn't very good, but our injury problems mean we have to play him if we're going 4-2-3-1 (personally, I'd chuck Billing in from the start and push Pritchard wider in more of a 4-3-3).

Still, if we go down, we go down. I don't want to say I'm not fussed, but it's one of those where, as disappointed as I'd be, I'd also appreciate just how much we've achieved this season. We'd be in a great position to build, even if we lost Wagner, and I think we'll have plans for whatever division we're in. We're keeping Lössl and Hadergjonaj (one of the achievements of the fans this season has been getting his name into a coherent song), even if we lost players we'd have a massive war chest to rebuild again. The Championship is one hell of a league, mind you, and if this is goodbye then at least we're taking some incredible memories with us - particularly the day we outfought, outplayed and quite deservedly beat Manchester United.


You might not get another point (although Arsenal's away record is dreadful, so you could get something against them) but who knows, that might be enough. If Southampton don't win at Swansea I doubt they'd catch you? Everton away and City at home their other games.

It's a daunting task though with Atletico's recent defensive record at home, something like 7-8 games without conceding at home


11 I think it is

Gonna be tough for Arsenal second leg but you never know. Would be good for Wenger to win a trophy in his final game as Arsenal manager.
