Wheels come off for Danny Cowley? 14:34 - Jun 28 with 260 viewsnoah4x4

The man with the Midas Touch at Lincoln joined ailing Huddersfield in September 2019 and a six match run gave him Championship Manager of the Month in October. Today, Huddersfield are on the brink of relegation.

If he gets sacked, I'd give him a chance at the Jobserve Stadium, given that he knows the route to Division Two promotion, which I fear our current manager, that I have fervently backed for 202 games, sadly lacks. At least Cowley shows some attacking intent.

So right Noah.
We should have looked to employ him straight from Braintree when anyone could see he had a bright future in management. He could have done for us what he did for Lincoln City. Regrettably I suggest he would not want a backward step to U's even if he does get the sack at Huddersfield which I doubt.

Spot on Gerry. This message board knew my views at the time he was at Concord, let alone Braintree. As you say, far too late for us now. I only hope that if another talent is under our noses we will not tread over it and ignore the obvious. Nobody I've spoken to understood why the Cowley brothers were not approached. It was 'small club thinking', so maybe that's all we are. I hope they keep Huddersfield up, they still play in the blue and white stripes.

Huddersfield losing 2-0 to Forest. So in even deeper trouble.

Shame their defending is naff as I had this as a 1-0 in HGPL having earlier nailed Bristol City 1- 2 Sheffield Wednesday, but 4 points will do me nicely. Surprised so many went for a Bristol win given they have lost seven on the bounce.

Far be it from me to disagree about Cowley but he has been found out in the Championship.

There is no way he would come to Colchester now.

The Manager I would have wanted would have been Warnock. For as much as I dislike him he knows how to get teams promoted and will keep the Boro up.

We will have to wait because in the current climate JM ain't going anywhere and Wayne Brown is not on the radar.

When we finally get the start dates for the new season we must hope that we can finally get the monkey of League Two off our backs and find s way to get back to League One.

Bradford City are going to be a force next season and even the Mariners could be a threat.

What makes it even worse is League One will once again have some very big teams and would have been an exciting season for the U's.

Difficult times.
Oh well I've lined up 15 away games COVID-19 allowing.
Up the U's

3-1 . Another bad result for Cowley.

I reckon Cowley's days are numbered as he has blown the parachute payments and Huddersfield now face a consecutive relegation into Division One. There has been too much recent investment in ground and fans for Chairman Phil Hodgkinson to tolerate this.

No thank you to Worncock. It cost us too much to change the floodlight elevation after Hoofroyd. I wish us to be more direct, but not utterly aerial. But I would welcome Cowley. North Essex prodigal son etc.

Whilst I understand your sentiment regarding Cowley he is not exactly noted for his football which is one of the reasons why Ipswich, despite being interested in him did not eventually opt for him as I understand it from somebody close to the club.
Warnock not mt cup of tea but will keep Middlesborough simply because teams around them are poor.
I would prefer us to stick with JMcG for one more season. Suspect it is going to be very challenging and somebody who knows the the Academy set up and those who are close to a regular spot well will be of more value I feel.

You think Cowley’s teams play decent football? I’ve seen nothing from the games against Lincoln to suggest that. They play results football which means in League One and League Two get it forward quickly and play in the final third. As Durham said above he’s been found out at Championship level. Also he acted like a classless moron on his visits to the Community Stadium. I must be one of the few people that feel that McGreal is actually doing a decent job.

"Results football"......res ipsa loquitor...

Northampton demonstrated in the second leg against Cheltennham and last night's final the benefit of playing an aerially dominant forward and a more direct approach. Lincoln similar. Much more action in the penalty box. Pretty football in midfield is simply too slow, plus as observed in an earlier post, we lose the ball too often in midfield leaving our back four exposed.

The difference between what Northampton did (also Lincoln) and our Boothroyd era is that Oliver won and held up the ball. It was actually joined up and not merely hoof and hope. It's many years since we had a forward that offered any aerial dominance and physical threat. The last perhaps being Chris Iwelumo, and then the less able Clive Platt. Look how successful those eras were , as they delivered nodded down balls to allow Lisbie, Cureton, Vernon and others to thrive. Earlier we had Scott McGleish who despite being of modest size he could leap like a salmon.

Our current favoured incumbent is as much threat as Mr Blobby. That makes us one dimensional and the fact he rarely wins and holds up the ball means other players don't gamble on getting into the box. We end up playing tippy tap triangles in the corners. We can't expect to mimic the playing style of Liverpool and Manchester City. We need Division Two tactics and more thug--like players to get us out of this division. Then we can think about adopting nice stuff once in the Championship (dream on). Both sides last night showed nasty streaks too. Referees are weak in Division Two, and we are always on the rough end of debatable decisions. Time we stopped being the nice guys.

I think it no coincidence Crewe have been promoted after playing Chris Porter in a role in which he thrives and giving him the service he needs. Plymouth are another direct side, with powerful forwards. I think we should regret letting the likes of Bonne, Marriott and others depart. Responsibility firmly with Humes....out!
