Unconvincing win but a win,3 points and that makes it one more away win than last season. Should set us up for a good February, if the illness that is going around the club doesn't turn into an epidemic.

A brilliant display that ends in a loss isn't worth anything but comfort in disipionment while a poor performance is soon forgotten with 3 points in the bag, especially when your chasing a league position.

09 Feb 2019 20:39:47
3 Points always welcome but wtf is going on with Ozil!

09 Feb 2019 20:41:51
First game iv missed all season. Was it as lack lustre as the reports are making it? Glad we came away with three points and scored more than 1 goal away from home for the first time since November I believe. Any insight on Denis Suarez?

09 Feb 2019 21:57:49
Sparky, i believe ozil was ill, they have a bug going round, so possible that it is true. They didn't miss him, apparently myki was very good.

seems to be ill a lot lately mate.

09 Feb 2019 22:50:34
I wonder wether he gets statutory sick pay, while he's off.

09 Feb 2019 23:04:40
His immune system is genuinely low so he does pick up illnesses easily

3 points are 3 points even if it wasn’t convincing. Fed up playing well, having 70% possession and coming away with zero points. Not sure we’ve figured out playing poorly and getting 3 points as we can’t defend but we just got 3 points! That should give them a boost


09 Feb 2019 23:10:25
hope it isn't at 40% poor sod.

09 Feb 2019 22:34:28
I wouldn’t say very good steve.

Little to be learned from today's performance SY mate as Huddersfield are currently the premier leagues 4th weakest team ever in regards of points at this stage of the season.
Today was all about not slipping up rather sending any kind of statement to our competitors.

With players out injured and ill, good to secure a much needed away win and end the day 1 point behind 4th placed Man U, who I belive face Liverpool next, while we have a couple of winnable home PL matches in a row. We should get most players back by the end of Feb, except the 3 players with season ending injuries. It would be excellent if we can finish the month in 4th place and in the last 16 of the CL.

We have a nice breather between Europa league games in which time players can recover from illness and injury plus it gives us a chance to work on our weaknesses in order to give ourselves the best possible chance of the best possible final league position.
Personally I can't see a top 4 finish without improvement at the back but maybe I'm wrong and we will get away with it for the rest of the season as we are.

IT was a win but to say we were absolute garbage is probably an insult to our local landfill. We barely strung two passes together, couldn't progress down the pitch, and were outnumbered wherever the ball was. I was convinced we either only sent out 9, or Huddersfield were playing with 15. With better finishing Huddersfield should have got more from this game, especially as we constantly gave the ball straight back to them, and frequently in our own half. We couldn't cope with their press, so much so that I actually missed Xhaka, as at least he does seem to be able to pass to a teammate. Someone said Myti had a good game? Yes in that he was involved in a goal, but pathetic for the rest of the time. When looking at why we defend so poorly, Myti summed it up perfectly yesterday. Time and again, he sort of tracks back, but makes no attempt to actually pick anyone up or tackle, so much so that he is a liability, and would be better off staying up the pitch. Anyway, to balance slightly he has just come back from injury, and perhaps ran out of steam. On the positive side Kos had a good game, and if he stays fit for the rest of the season, we may start to see the goals conceded improve.

I think yesterday was in many ways the story of our season, our results depend on both what we do and what the opposing strikes don't do.
We concede so many chances in each and every game that results are always going to be a bit like a lottery for us rather than us ever having any real control over them.
They were under Arsene too of course, we still rely on simply out scoring the opposition rather than controlling a game.

10 Feb 2019 14:53:09
I think it’s important that we keep this inept and out of his depth manager to ensure that we continue failing to challenge, win nothing, carry on looking weak as pi55 and get our yearly beatings off the big clubs until the end of his waste of time contract.

Just my opinion of course.

10 Feb 2019 15:21:36
Only saw the highlights but we were clearly as useless as normal in defence and kept giving the bill away /, failed to make simple passes.

We need creativity in midfield to create chances and get a bit of shape in defence. I read that we’ve tinkered with formation every away game - that’s crazy.

I don’t want us to give up creativity in attack because we can’t defend. How about tell the holding midfielders / fullbacks and center backs to hold their F’ing position. That way we can accommodate an Ozil type player who should use 100% of his time supporting the attack not defending.

We’ve dropped him because everyone else including the manager can’t do their job. Result is an imbalanced team that’s frustrating to watch and who leaks goals.

62 - you are right. This game isn’t the yardstick and standards are dropping each season. Frustrating times.

It's certainly getting easier and easier to play against Arsenal each season SY mate.
Sit back keep it tight at the back and don't worry about creating chances too much because Arsenal will present you with lots of opportunities to score when their entire midfield and both fullbacks go goal chasing without a thought of getting exposed themselves.
If you go toe to toe with Arsenal you are making life hard for your self and turning the game into a lottery as Everton Liverpool Chelsea and Spurs did but if you sit back as United did have done and will do again Arsenal are extremely easy pickings that keeps getting easier and easier and all you have to do is sit back and take the chances you will always get against Arsenal.
