Vital 1st Team Regular

Quite a few of them seem to have had a bet on us winning.
Saw that, 7/1 someone said. I couldn't bring myself to bet against my own team. I rarely bet on us, as its usually the kiss of death (e.g. Notts away last season)

Strangely, no sign of anyone calling us long-ball animals. Think they are all too busy raging about their manager.

A lot of older fans are predicting a drop through the divisions similar to the early 70’s where they went from Div 1 to Div 4 in 4 seasons.
There is a chance of history repeating itself like that - the late 70s was the only time in my lifetime when Huddersfield Town was not a bigger (indeed, much bigger) club than ours, but if they want a parallel there's a more recent one.

Their hated neighbours Bradford City also stayed in the Premier League by the skin of their teeth 20 years ago then had a miserable, overspending second season after which they endured years of decline till the reached the fourth level again.

I'm surprised nobody there has brought that up :)
