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.

2.) 19 Oct 2016 00:15:29
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?


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!

He should at least get some of those pet-antlers or a new sparkling collar.

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.



15 Nov 2016 21:59:19
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

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.

You don't sound too enthusiastic Ed001. I guess you're unhappy with our summer plans. Still have faith in Jürgen Klopp?

Personally I trust him to get things right whomever we sign. I questioned the signing of Wijnaldum last summer and was totally proved wrong so I shan't judge any other players until I've seen them under Klopp. Van Dijk for example, is a player I dislike as much as you Ed, but I would trust Klopp to improve his concentration and make him the defender we need!

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - I believe he wants players he can develop into better players and the players he is targeting are all ones with clear areas that could be improved easily, if the player wants to. So yes, as it comes down to the ability of the coaches to get that improvement and they have shown they can make a significant difference. My faith is not lost, signings are not really anything that excite me particularly anyway. I would rather we signed players to fit our system than the best individual players.}

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.}

I believe we find out our opponents in the first week in August and then the two-legged play-off is playing the same month.

It's horrible to say as a Liverpool supporter all my lifr Ed002, but you're right on this. Liverpool have shamed themselves and need to buck up their ideas on how they deal with transfers. It's getting ridiculous now.

Do you see any way of the club recovering all of their mess Ed? It's horrible as a supporter looking in from the outside to see the club I have been brought up loving turn itself into a farce.

I will always support Liverpool, but I won't put the blinkers on in situations such as this.

Reid the Red

{Ed002's Note - The way to recover is to stop the manager acting illegally.}

Hope not personally. We have Sadio Mané for the right wing. Mahrez rarelys plays on the left and so I don't see him getting in our team. Don't want us to continue to buy players for the substitutes bench.

Without getting into specifics Ed002, how long can a club like Man United go with such old debt? Surely they have to pay it off at some point and can't go on leaving it unpaid?

Reid the Red

{Ed002's Note - It is not unpaid. They are servicing their structured debt - it is not an issue at all.}

Do you think he will be able to recover from two significant injuries Ed001? Not only physically, but mentally too, enough to stake a claim in our starting XI? It sounds like we're wanting to sign a forward this summer, so he would be competing with Origi, Firmino and another striker for a start if that's the case.

I really hope he makes it and becomes a top player for us because his attitude and work ethic is admirable.

Your thoughts Ed001?

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - not immediately no. It will take him a while, but there is no reason why not.}
