0 Have your say MIDFIELDER Philip Billing admits Huddersfield Town’s Premier League struggles have proved to be such a drain mentally that he may be forced to miss this summer’s UEFA European Under-21 Championships. Billing has been involved in all but four of the club’s 29 league games this season, making him joint third in the list of appearances behind ever-present Christopher Schindler and goalkeeper Jonas Lossl. It means Billing has endured plenty of tough times amid the travails suffered by Yorkshire’s sole representative in the top flight. “This has been a long, long season with a lot of downs,” he told The Yorkshire Post. “We are hurting. This is our job and we want to get the points and the wins. “But we are human beings. We make mistakes and we have bad weeks or months or days. That is football.”Billing’s domestic duties have been combined with helping Denmark’s Under-21s qualify for this … [Read more...] about Huddersfield Town v Bournemouth: Don’t blame the strikers, says jaded Terriers star Philip Billing

0 Have your say Huddersfield Town have comfortably the worst scoring record in Europe’s top five leagues with just 15 goals to their name from 28 Premier League outings this season. Head coach Jan Siewert, however, is backing Steve Mounie and Karlan Grant to help improve that woeful return after getting themselves on the scoresheet in each of the last two home games.“I enjoyed that Steve scored because strikers need that feeling,” said the 36-year-old about Mounie’s dramatic late winner against Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek.“It is not easy when not scoring. This gives him momentum. Karlan scored in an earlier game (the February 9 defeat to Arsenal) and he was close to a second goal. “The more players in the box posing a threat makes you closer to a goal. That is what I really enjoy.“Mounie proved (he can score). So has Karlan. Everyone has to feel free to score for Huddersfield Town.“Goals are the salt in the … [Read more...] about Huddersfield Town still in the soup but Siewert sees hope after Wolves win

0 Have your say FLORENT HADERGJONAJ’S arrival at FC Ingolstadt 04 during the summer of 2016 came a couple of months after Ralph Hasenhuttl had quit the German club to take charge of RB Leipzig. It means the Huddersfield Town full-back has no personal experience of what makes the Southampton manager tick ahead of today’s meeting between two relegation rivals at the John Smith’s Stadium. But, thanks to his year in the Bundesliga with Ingolstadt, Hadergjonaj does boast plenty of inside knowledge of how the Austrian works.“Those of us who played in Germany know a little bit more about him and his teams than maybe the English guys,” the 24-year-old told The Yorkshire Post when asked about the recently-appointed Saints chief.“He left just before I signed but I spoke about him to my new team-mates at Ingolstadt. All the players spoke about the same things. About how he was intense in training. About what a good manager he was for the … [Read more...] about Huddersfield Town v Southampton – Positive approach can help Terriers see off rejuvenated Saints
0 Have your say QUITE a month for Juninho Bacuna. The Hudderfield Town midfielder became a father for the first time following the arrival of son Jemayrio Jesinho on November 21. Then came a run-out at Emirates Stadium against Arsenal after being brought off the bench early in the second half, which Bacuna followed by making his full Premier League debut at a sodden John Smith’s Stadium against Newcastle United. The result was not the one he or Huddersfield wanted, Salomon Rondon’s fourth goal in six games being enough to secure all three points for Rafael Benitez’s men.But there was no mistaking the pride felt by the 21-year-old, whose most notable moment in England before these recent two outings had been the comical own goal against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup that saw him slice a clearance into the Terriers’ net from 40 yards.“It is good,” said Bacuna when asked by The Yorkshire Post about life as a father. “I … [Read more...] about Huddersfield Town 0 Newcastle United 1: Terriers undone by game’s one piece of genuine class
