Why Huddersfield Town AFC?
One of the main reasons for taking charge of Huddersfield Town, affectionately known as The Terriers, is that it is my home town; born and raised. Despite my first love being Liverpool FC I am always in hope that one day The Terriers can reach the heights of yester year. If I am 100% honest, I rarely remember to check the Huddersfield Town score and have no idea where they are in the league right now. I have limited knowledge about any of the players currently at the club so it is as if I am taking control of a club at the other end of the country.
Nevertheless, the 2012 Play-Off Final against Sheffield United was one of the tensest and incredible games I have ever watched. For Huddersfield Town to be promoted to the second tier of league football was a huge achievement. It was an achievement that should have been Lee Clarke’s instead of Simon Grayson’s, who was in charge of the club at Wembley. This match and the proud history of the football club has inspired me to get them back to the very top of English football. However, I can honestly see it as being slow progress.
A Brief History
Information taken from the Huddersfield Town website
Huddersfield Town is one of those clubs, that in my opinion, holds onto the past. Sound familiar from my Liverpool FC story? The fans of the club like to make it known that they won the league three times in a row before any other club. As someone who is straight to the point, my question is, who cares? It is more important for the club to be focusing on the challenges ahead which is to consolidate their place in the Championship, which is described as one of the most difficult leagues in the world, and then to move onto better things.
You cannot knock the team for winning awards such as ‘Family Club of the Year’ and ‘Best Matchday Programme’ but is this really all the club aspires to achieve (I really hope not!). It is my intention to change this lack of ambition and have the team aiming for the top.
