Double delight for Steve Mounie as Huddersfield celebrate flawless start

Double delight for Steve Mounie as Huddersfield celebrate flawless start

Huddersfield's record signing Steve Mounie and Tom Ince are among nine new summer signings hoping to play for the Terriers. "Hudson's exact role in the coaching setup will be defined soon and in the interim, he will support the preparations and training for Town's Premier League debut in 2017/18 alongside Wagner and the technical staff". I am sure there will be more pundits who have their opinions on what clubs will do and how they will play.

Yes, now, probably the quality of the individuals - players and managers - is at the highest level, this is why they're in the Premier League.

"Tommy has all the right skills needed to be a good captain; he is reliable, open-minded, committed and likes to challenge not only himself but the group as well", Wagner said.

"I think everyone can see how big of an influence he is in the dressing room and how good of a character he is for the team".

De Boer will be looking for his side to bounce back after a poor result, but one player who stood out among the rest during The Eagles' defeat was on loan defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah.




De Boer is an interesting appointment for the Eagles, with the shock departure of former England boss Sam Allardyce allowing them to bring in a more exotic appointment.

"I'm aware of it, let's say", he said of the fashion among Premier League managers to employ three at the back.

New Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer admits that he will be aiming to achieve security with a mid-table finish in the Premier League this term. "We just didn't make the right choices and we got punished for that".

Huddersfield Town's last top-flight match was in April 1972 and also away at Crystal Palace, a 0-0 draw.

A few opinions, therefore, could have been changed by a superb opening day win for the Terriers that left their 3,000 fans chanting, "We are top of the league" in the closing stages.
