Huddersfield Town V Boro 3-2 ( Johnson, Assombalonga))


Recommended Posts

Game Details:

Venue: John Smith Stadium (or if your prefer Kirklees Stadium) Huddersfield

Date: Saturday 28th November 2020

Kick off: 1500hrs or 3pm f you do not understand the 24 hour clock.

Introduction

Well welcome everyone to the second DS Match Day thread in less than 4 days but not as impomptu as my last (and may I say decent effort).

Boro fresh from a very fine win against Waynes World last night take the show on the road and travel to Huddersfield where I hope we can terrorise "The Terriers" who achieved a goalless draw against Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on Tuesday night.

What does Warnock do?

Well clearly NW does read the oneBoro forum and obviously thought highly of my recommendation of starting Roberts and Watmore from the off, and with a few tweaks along the way managed a very fine team performance up front as he knows he has a bloody good defensive set up.

So lads and lassies if you were in SmogDanes favourite persons shoes how would you set up for this game?

Huddersfield Town

There recent 6 game form has seen them win once, drawn twice and lose 3 games.

Their defence is not the best at keeping the opposition out but they can score goals so should we be concerned?

Looks the most likely to have comments about the game

The view from Downsouth.  (has anyone worked this out so far?)

Whilst I woud love to include my very seldom used phrase it has been a while since we last won away and following last nights win it would be great to follow up with another 3 points so whilst not quite there this game is very important for many reasons.

The way we are set up and with a team that actually looks like a team and with quite a few options I really believe we can set about Huddersfield and come away with another victory so basically stick to the Derby formula (barring injuries) and go from there. Would be good to see Morsy back in the squad.

 

Over to you folks I hope that you have enjoyed reading the Opening Post and will wish to contribute and become The Manager you all want to be

 I thank you😑 ps this deserves more than the 3 likes I got for the Derby OP!😄

That’s because it happened 10 minutes before you actually witnessed it. 

With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With m

I'd be tempted to start with the same first 11, but I reckon NW will revert back to Spence and Johnson given that it's away and they both had a huge impact after coming on. Also Huddersfield is a much better team than _Derby so will likely put us under more pressure. I fancy us to keep another clean sheet for obvious reasons so just pray that we will take at least the one big chance that every team get.

Probably starts with the side that finishes that last game. Watmore and Roberts will probably be wrecked after their first game time in a while and he likes to rotate the striker. 

How good it is to know that Watmore when given game time will be doing his utmost to impress, think he is going to be a very handy player for us

@Denzel Zanzibar. Warnock said last night he hopes Morsy can make the bench. Will also provide update on Hall tomorrow who suffered a set back.

@Neverbefore. I agree that i think spence and marv will come in for Watmore and Roberts.

I not seen anything of Huddersfield this season but remember when we played brentford and when they mamager was asked about our style he said its very unique as only one other team in league play like us and that is Huddersfield.  I cant comment as not seen Huddersfield this seson but is he correct?

I completely understand the need for rotation, and I appreciate Roberts and Watmore will have expended 90 minutes worth of energy in 55 minutes last night. But nothing restores fitness like match practice, so I would start with the same XI if possible, to build their confidence and fitness against another underperforming and underwhelming team. We can sub half our outfield team if legs are tiring around the hour mark (since we're not committed to play any of our players for the full 90 minutes, unlike some clubs I could mention).

Enjoyed the OP by the way - it definitely deserves a double-figure like tally...

The guy in charge at Huddersfield is Carlos Carvahlo who was Bielsa's right hand man at Leeds.

The style is similar to Leeds therefore where they try and play in your face all the time.

The results have been mixed, mainly not very good but if they get on top and confident then all sorts of things happen and they can score a few.  Not really sure on the use of subs and the understanding of the game by the man in charge especially as it is his first solo effort

If we can avoid giving them any encouragement early doors then we ought be able to knick the odd goal somewhere along the line before our super subs appear to add to the score line

Brunners Thank you for the correction I was never any good at spelling.  I hear about him most days on my local news and I still can't get it right - not impressive really

 

Remember growing old is inevitable but growing up is optional and I was lousy at spelling as a kid and it has not got much better.  Maybe it is time I grew up !!

 

keep smiling

Interesting side Huddersfield as stated they trying to implement a Bielsa style of football. However they are very inconsistent so it's important we get on top in the early stages don't let then get any confidence then we should do alright get another win on the board.Think Spence & Johnson will come in for Roberts and Watmore apart from that be unchanged side.

    • Can’t see Akpom being in the squad. 
    • Its hard to know fully what the consequences of something like that would be. The Premier league product without the big 6 would not be as desirable to TV companies especially overseas, there's no doubt about that.  Obviously then the income of every other club would drop and big name players would move on.  Commercially it would probably be a bad idea but wouldn't it be great if sporting competition and integrity were put above that.   
    • I certainly think it's an interesting thing to consider, if we broke off from them or simply banned them from competing alongside us until they put this stupid idea to bed, how the broadcasters would react. Who would they follow? Sky, for example, right now are protecting the Premier League with all the power they can. It's beneficial for them to do that. But if we split from those 6 and they had the opportunity of buying into what those clubs do next or just sticking by the Premier League and the EFL, what would they do? It seems like it should be an easy answer, follow the clubs with the money, follow the potential viewing figures they would generate. But is it as simple as that? I'm not so sure.
    • 1. Was it Malley that was highly rated a year or two ago? If it was I'd give him a go alongside Howson. I'd also give Coulson a run a leftback, we know what Bola is all about, and under JW Coulson seemed to be on an upward trajectory. If he puts in 5 good performances maybe we can keep him as cover for Bola and not worry about needing to sign leftback cover in the summer. Archer Fisher, Hall, McNair ,Coulson Howson, Malley Kebano, Watmore, Bolasie Akpom 1a. No idea, pesky Romans. 2. Negredo purely because at the time he seemed the perfect striker for Aitor's system (that he used during the promotion season). Valdes is worth a shout just because of his previous experience in the game and what he had won. 3. Who knows, but if we finish lower than 9th next season, that would be pretty bad.
    • Amber list countries then, if he has to quarantine.
