Huddersfield found out what it's like to be us today.

They played very well. Controlled the pace and the play for much of the game, but weren't at all clinical while they watched us make the most of our opportunities.

We did not play well, but I'm encouraged anyway. This was a tough win to grind out. A derby away from home, key players missing, an opponent that took us away from our game, yet we still come away with all three points.

Outstanding.

Bloody brilliant win. Tough game, Huddersfield we’re up for that and played well and made it tough for us but we stuck at it and got a comfortable win. Happy days, now off I go to Munster match :)

Oh er.

Casilla - 10. Kept Hudds at bay single handed first half
Ayling - 8 - After a sluggish start grew into the game
Berardi - 9 - His imperious self in difficult circumstances, won more headers against a much bigger man than he had a right to
Alioski - 8 - Wonderful tech for the goal and seemed to be everywhere, got caught in defence once or twice
White - 6 - Difficult transition and although he got better his positioning was too deep and got beat a couple of times too easily too when in two minds
Klich - 9 - Almost single handedly dealt with their mid at times, still found time to be creative.
Costa - 7 - Good outlet on the right, improves by the game
Hernandez - 8 - Started off the pace, some wayward passing but got better an key in the second half, took his goal well
Harrison - 9 - Such a dangerous footballer, we had everything today from him from great defence, clever footwork and tantalizing crosses, especially as he struggled to get in the game early doors. We're so much better when we look for James down our left..and that cross, almost as good as the Roofe one last season
Bamford - 7 - Worked his socks off, maybe should have done better with two of his chances but unlucky with the point blank header
Dallas - 7 - Worked hard but tbh not sure what he was supposed to be playing.

Did well there to withstand a lot of pressure but better finishing and they'd have at least a draw. We had a few breaks which we didn't make the most of but we are managing games better this season instead of the gung ho approach which explains fewer goals but more clean sheets. What an introduction for Eddie as well...he had a hand in the build up and his pace immediately put Udders on the back foot. Hope he stays .

I would, probably a bad omen if you don't now....

Good luck against Saracens today, big game by the looks of it

Pros:
3 points
Clean sheet
6 in a row
Won without Kalvin
Won without Coops
Harrison's cross for Pablo
Casey debut
Kiko's save
Town losing their cup final
Scored from a corner

Cons:
Struggled with their hoofball/set pieces
Alioski's celebration - unfortunately it'll draw bad press and accusation from the Daily Heil/Sly Sports etc
Still wasting big chance when 0-0/1-0 up
White struggled at DM
Shocking offside call for 2-0 - VAR needed
What I want from an owner: 1. Ambition. 2. Wage bill control. 3. Cut spending on loan fees. 4. Better scouting. 5. Get bigger fees for our best players. 6.No ego.

I don't think there were any cons today, we rode a couple of set backs fairly well and Hudds came to play and counter our counters. Didn't notice Alio's gesture tbh. The offside was not our fault.

Not been a Union fan for years to be honest..Used to be a Wasps fan when they played in Sudbury, and a bit less when they were at Loftus Road, gave up when they moved to Coventry and lost interest in the game

I didn’t real time but saw it back, very misjudged even though innocent intent.

Looks like a heart sign...not sure how you can mis-judge that unless it's become a symbol of something else lately
