Hey Eds and Reds,

A little late but here's my Danny Ward update after Sunday's game against Sheffield Wednesday.

Huddersfield, and Ward, suffered their first home defeat in the Championship this season as they went down 0-1 to finish the weekend 3rd in the table, outside of the automatic promotion spots on goal difference.

Before I begin Ward's performance review, it's worth noting that after 12 league games, he and his club boast a defence that no side in the division have conceded fewer goals than, so that's a major plus note for Ward as he has played every game so far.

Onto his performance, in a game that was not too dissimilar to Liverpool's against Man Utd last night. Sheff Weds came to stifle Wagner's creative, energetic side just as Mourinho did on Red Monday. Except a second half penalty saw the Owls nick a win.

That meant that, ultimately, Ward had little to do over the 90 minutes in terms of saves. He was helpless for Forestieri's well-placed penalty kick winner. Ward dived the wrong way but the Wednesday man dummied his kick well.

Aside that, Ward was beaten on one other occasion by Forestieri, as Town's defence was beaten by a simple long ball which Forestieri brought down. Ward came out to close him down but was chipped. The post came to his rescue. Truthfully it was a clever strike and it would be harsh to blame Ward. He came out well enough and made himself big. Really he caused Forestieri to miss the chance.

Other than that, he had no other meaningful shots to deal with. So onto his distribution.

His passing was largely short as Wagner wants his team to play out from the back. It was accurate and really without fault so nothing much to complain about there.

His command of the box was also good. He had one moment where he let a cross go over him but no danger ultimately came of it. He claimed crosses well and made an excellent sweeper keeper for a number of Sheff Weds' long balls forward, to which he was sharp and off his line to clear. This was his most impressive part of his performance.

One other slight blip was on one occasion when he came to close down a Wednesday attacker, he left himself a little stranded and almost allowed the opposition in for a chance.

Overall, he wasn't helped by Wednesday being capable of exploiting a sluggish centre back pairing for Town that on more than one occasion failed to deal with simple punts over the top. Ward had to be alert and concentrated for the whole game as Town had the vast majority of the ball and Wednesday had little territory near Ward's goal.

A disappointing result in the end but Ward was not to blame and he had a largely sound game. He continued to impress and he has said this week that he hopes to stake a claim in the Liverpool side going forward.

He's doing his chances little harm at Huddersfield, and hopefully he continues to avoid injury, maintain form and keep his place in the team. The experience he is gaining, in a side managed by a man who knows Klopp very well, will no doubt be invaluable for him.

Thanks Reid the Red. Watched the game as I have a soft spot for Huddersfield having worked there and attended a few games. Spot on with the review of the game. Nothing Danny Ward could of done with the penalty as it was well placed. Hoping they can have as good a season as we do, would be nice to se them in the premier, though financially they aren't as well set up as some of the competition.
YNWA.

Thanks for the update Reid, hopefully he continues to impress and comes back to challenge for the No.1 spot next season.


3.) 19 Oct 2016 01:55:26
Thanks mate, sounds exciting that lad.


4.) 21 Oct 2016 00:56:35
Thanks mate for the very thorough update. One question - is he being used as a sweeper keeper (German style where the keeper positions himself further upfield) or as a traditional goalkeeper?

Hey Eds,

I have been reading quotes from Suso that says if he were to sign a new contract at LFC then he thinks it would be good for him to spend another year on loan at Almeria. Is this a possibility?

Thanks

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - yes. Almeria would love to keep him.}


1.) Ed would it not be better him going to a prem team for prem experience? Swansea would be good for him

{Ed001's Note - that is saying Swansea are still in the Prem, and how they end up playing under Monk, whether they would want him etc etc. I can't see it would be a good move for Suso to go there myself.}


2.) I can see what your saying ed just think he would be better havinga year in the prem would help him massively and us to


3.) He's already got prem experience. What's important is that he plays - which he is At the moment.

Hey Eds,

I know there has been numerous questions on this of late but there has been little confirmed from you Eds so I'm going to ask again to see if there's been any update - have we bid for Diego Costa?

Thanks in advance {Ed002's Note - I am aware of interest but have no confirmation of a bid being made.}

1.) Mate dstar says yday me met release clause, 2days says we bid 15mil. An to think eds got slated for sayin what they thought over it

Hey Eds and Reds,

Just posting my Danny Ward update - my first in a while after I had my own little winter break on the holiday!

Yesterday, Town comfortably beat Ipswich 2-0, leaving them 3rd in the Championship and earning Ward what was his seventh clean sheet in a Terriers shirt.

Ward had little to do in what was Huddersfield's biggest win of the season so far (yes, they hadn't won by more than a single goal prior to yesterday! )

But what he did do, he did with calm and assurance beyond his years - the Huddersfield defenders trust him behind them, and that's a massive compliment to him.

He made a couple of straightforward saves but wasn't truly tested in this regard. As seems to be usual for him, he did come for a number of crosses, successfully punching away most although rarely catching them. This wasn't a problem, as I felt that he made the correct decisions when coming out, and relieved the pressure from his side often.

His kicking however, wasn't quite up to scratch. A couple of sliced clearances from albeit awkward backpasses did put his side under some pressure, but truth be told this wasn't a major issue as Ipswich were poor on the day. He did start some effective counter attacks with some kicks, but it wasn't as consistent as usual in my view.

Overall, it's hard to judge him based on yesterday as Ipswich threatened him so little, but he does play with an assurance that improves the Huddersfield defence immeasurably, which very much impresses me. His decision making is largely excellent, and I'm sure the inconsistencies in his kicking and claiming of crosses will be ironed out as he gains experience. A good day for the Welshman overall!

Would like to join everyone in saying a huge Merry Christmas to all Eds and Reds!

Keep up all the amazing work you put into this site Eds, it truly is so appreciated!

I hope you all get what you asked for from Santa! I assume WonderDog Sparky shall be getting a new dog coat, Ed002!

Hey Eds and Reds,

Just giving my update on Danny Ward's performance in Huddersfield's 1-2 defeat at home to Wigan.

It was a bad result for Town against a side battling around the relegation places, and leaves them clinging onto a playoff place when a matter of weeks earlier, they were top of the Championship.

Despite the score line, Huddersfield dominated the game. Wigan's two goals were on the counter attack and Town had 70% possession. As such, Ward had little to do over 90 minutes.

He made a couple of reasonable saves, one down low from a Wildschut strike in the first half but he could do little about Burke's goal. A cross came in, deflected off a Town defender and left Burke unmarked and therefore Ward helpless to prevent the opening goal.

Wigan's second goal, well if I'm being honest, Ward left me unimpressed. Wildschut was too easily let through by a slow Town back line so Ward came out 1-on-1. He was slow to coke out in my view and his attempt to stop Wildschut, well frankly it wasn't great. He was all too easily roundedby Wildschut and that was 2-1.

You'll see from his stats, he didn't so much as have a catch to make aside that so an uneventful but poor night for Ward I'm afraid.

His kicking was otherwise fine but he was never given much difficulty with it.

He will have better games, games where he will perhaps have more moments to impress but last night won't be one to remember for him nor Huddersfield Town for that matter.

Hope that's ok for you guys!

I actually saw the game myself here in the States on BEIN Sports and I agree that Ward did not cover himself in glory with some of his decision making. I will say that his defence hung him out to dry at times due to mistakes or maybe the way David Wagner has them playing but boy, were they ripe for the taking on every counter attack from Wigan. Just a bad day at the office for the whole team and manager, IMO.


2.) 29 Nov 2016 17:39:43
Thank you for the update Red! :)


3.) 29 Nov 2016 17:53:18
Couldn't agree more Hamilton. Wagner wants his team playing nice, expansive football but Hudson doesn't have the legs for it and he hasn't worked out his best partnership at the back. Tommy Smith has improved offensively as a right back but I have never rated him highly defensively. So yes, his defence did hang him out to dry at times but hopefully that will improve as Huddersfield get more used to Wagner's style.

Shame about the final minutes for England, but I'd just like to say that I thought Jordan Henderson was fantastic tonight. Didn't put a foot wrong all match!

Reid the Red

1.) 15 Nov 2016 22:11:38
Sorry but I just don't care.

Why did Henderson play full game?

What is the bloody point?

Waste of time.


2.) 15 Nov 2016 22:39:03
REID the RED

Totally agree. Hendo was brilliant and showed how a REAL Captain should play.
Playing for his Country obviously means a lot to him and we should respect that.


3.) 16 Nov 2016 10:26:45
But according to the Daily Star he was just ok and only got a 6, but Sterling gets a 7! Some of these reporters really are clueless and get paid for just spouting nonsense!


4.) 16 Nov 2016 13:07:21
"But according to the Daily Star. "

One of the least reliable of unreliable newspapers 😄.


5.) 16 Nov 2016 14:42:18
Daily star? Might as well have me writing their footy columns because I having a bloody clue either lol.

There's been talk of Joe Gomez moving on loan their too! As you guys know, I commentate on Huddersfield Town home games and I provide updates on here about Danny Ward.

I've consistently said recently that Huddersfield Town's defence has left Ward exposed at times, and Connor Randall would be a major defensive improvement on Tommy Smith defensively if you ask me and Joe Gomez would provide more pace and energy than a number of their current centre back options to deal with counter attacks better than they have been doing!

I have my fingers crossed that one or both these rumours are true!

Cheers Ed! We've commanded some decent fees for players we've sold up to press but I can imagine we're pushing our luck a little bit with one or two asking prices, Markovic included.

Reid the Red

{Ed002's Note - I would agree.}

Great reply Ed002!

I know you don't want to get into money but without going into detail, is Lazio's offer close to Liverpool's asking price or does that seem unlikely? Does that Milan loan seem more probable?

Reid the Red

{Ed002's Note - The Lazio offer was well short of the asking price and I expect Liverpool will want a sale rather than a loan.}

So does it look likely that Moreno will be first choice with Milner backup and Klavan, Sakho and Gomez filling in if/ when needed Ed? Or is Milner actually going to be first choice?

I'd have hoped Flanagan could have another go at either full back position as he did in the 13/ 14 second place season but he doesn't seem to be a part of Klopp's plans. Has he gone out on loan yet?

I think we've missed a massive trick with Chilwell, and I'm surprised we haven't pushed more for Amavi since missing out on him!

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - it looks like we are going to give Milner a go as first choice. Moreno is last resort.}

Having watched him regularly for Huddersfield Town this season, I hope he makes our first team squad at least next season, as back up to Karius if you ask me.

I agree, I rate him also but I'm not sure he's ready to step up to quite the level we need just yet. He needs a bit more experience at top flight level first and some good coaching to improve things like his kicking and his ability in one-on-one situations, things that are important in Klopp's system.

I'd love to see him given a chance to push Karius though next campaign. We'll have to see if, like Ed001 has said, he's ready to prove himself to earn a place in the squad.

Hi IOM Red.

I post Danny Ward updates - check my profile and you'll see them. My last one was last week in their 2-0 win over Ipswich. Ward has actually kept a few consecutive clean sheets and he's playing relatively well.

Kicking and distribution is occasionally inconsistent but his calmness, confidence and assurance in his decision making has been impressive and has made the odd high quality save this season. Truth be told, in recent games he hasn't been tested too much!

Great podcast Ed002 - you mention that Liverpool have made an offer to buy Mariano from Real Madrid. Is this offer acceptable or do you not see this happening?

Thanks, and keep up the great work!

Reid the Red

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid would let him move on given their recent efforts to offer Benzema for sale failed to get any interest - so Benzema will stay to the summer and that would free up Mariano who has limited options for playing. I suspect the summer is more likely and we will have to see where the interest is from then.}

Karius first choice, Ward second choice, Fulton third for next season, Ed001?

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - doesn't sound too bad, so long as Karius is what we hope in the long run.}
