Basically said it was effective and they were climbing the league but people should not have to watch it. One tactic ,constantly playing for free kicks to overload the penalty area ,that's it ,nothing else ,Huddersfield owners and fans could not possibly want to watch that every week and if the Cowleys did not change their style of play once they were safe then they would probably be sacked.

Posters on here are correct ,they will get another position very soon and if successful some will think they are doing a good job . Personally I would like to see them have every coaching qualification rescinded on the grounds of cruelty to football fans everywhere.

:lol: Steve Hodge! He was livid after that game, if you thought what he said on air was bad you should’ve heard him off air :lol:

Spoke to a friend of a friend who knows the chairman, said a while ago they would be off as not all is well behind the scenes. It sounds like the Cowley’s were used to having their own way at Lincoln (probably rightly so) and struggled with the culture at Huddersfield. Apparently the club were not happy with the training regime for one.
Also rumours they had been talking with other chairmen about other jobs so it’ll be interesting where they pop up next.

It’s quickly became apparent that it was based on finances.

A great job? not sure about that.

They were bottom of the division with no wins when they took over, they’ve kept them up and beat West Brom the other day, yeah they have done a great job.

ah didn't realise they were bottom, just thought they were around where they are now

This is a ridiculous decision. They’ve done what they were brought in to do. I don’t like them at all but this is as stupid as Watford letting Pearson go.

Hate Watford.
