The Terriers have more than held their own in the Premier League this season and David Wagner is delighted. The German manager watched his team cruise to an impressive 4-1 win at Watford on Saturday. Afterwards, he was bullish about Huddersfield's prospects for the rest of the season. They are up to 11th now in the Premier League table with 21 points, 6 clear of the bottom three. It is a nice cushion to have at this stage of the season, but they can't become complacent.
After his teamed gained their second away win of the season on Saturday Wagner was in optimistic mood. Speaking to the media afterwards he said: “Because we had no experience in the Premier League, at the start of the season, I had the hope that this group of players could survive. Now, after playing 18 games, I have belief we have a chance to survive.
“If you ask me for a place I have nothing in my mind because we gave ourselves no limits on what we can achieve, that is what I believe. First and foremost our target is to survive and to make sure we are in the Premier League next season. We will try our best and take what we get out of this season. To give yourself a limit gives you a limit and this is what we should avoid. Our only aim is to play as well as we can.”
Happy Huddersfield Fans
The Terriers' supporters must be thrilled with their team so far this season. Huddersfield were amongst the pre season favourites for the drop, but so far they have proved the doubters to be completely wrong.
Not only are they holding their own in the Premier League, they are doing so playing an attractive brand of football. David Wagner deserves all the plaudits that come his way and Huddersfield fans will be hoping he stays at the club for a long time yet.
