How bad must they be at the moment, Preston were one of the worst sides Ive seen at Hillsboro' for years yet they go and beat them, I actually don't mid playing them in the Play-offs now but I don't think we will be for some reason.

Do get the feeling that 0-2 defeat has hit them hard.

Sacking your manager when you are unbeaten for 2 years was just madness.

Best team outside Premiership until he went.

Agree

That Huddersfield side that beat us 2-0 on THAT night were fantastic.

Leeds have sent Agent Grayson in to do a job, just like Agent Wilson but somehow he is flipping it up..

Come on Danny get back to the plan.

I dont buy it. Playoffs don't start for nearly a month, plenty of time for them to play themselves back into form.
Rhodes comes good again, and they'll be a force.

Once they knew automatic promotion wasn't on (after we gave them a comprehensive defeat), they have been mentally building for play-offs. Grayson did alright in the play-offs for Blackpool didn't he?

They could be very tough opponent in the play-offs if it comes to that.

What you think Simons lying? hmmmm maybe, but someone should tell the Hudders fans they all want Simple to go now.

Blackpool and this Huddersfield side are very very different mate.

It's all fallen apart, anti Leeds factions against Grayson, some players looking like they don't give a throw. Fans even having a go at them at end today. We've no chance even if we get the 3 points we need to secure a top 6 finish..

Unless this is a fantastic tactic to lure the other 3 play off teams into thinking we really are poo ;-)

Regardless of current form, a side with Jordan Rhodes up front will prove very dangerous opposition in the playoffs.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Dont you have a bit of an injury crisis in central midfield? Perhaps if some of those players come back you'll get your act together. No way you wont make the playoffs.

Absolutely. Easiest team talk for any out of form team going into the play offs.

Nothing that's gone before matters, clean slate etc etc.

Anything can happen, but I'd still be confident of our chances.

who's injured? All our central midfielders are crap, that has been the problem all season, even Miller came back today after his hernia op, that's how desperate things are!!

TBF Tommy Miller is bobins I actually forgot he sill played for you, Sunflower it was a mistake to sack Clark and as hard as it may be to admit this Dean Hoyle imo has dropped a major bollok with Simple Simon.

So how come when you talk to actual Huddersfield fans, and i do a lot, how come i haven't met one that wanted Clark back or supported him in any way and i do mean none to a man they all say he deserved to go.

Clark was sacked for drawing to many games imo, Dean Hoyle (Hudds chairman) got Simon Grayson in to get them to automatic, all the Huddersfield fans were slagging Clark off which I felt was weird seeing as they were sitting in 3rd and a good chance of a automatic place, they even played better then Sheff Utd in his last game but they all still wanted rid, So when this Simon kid came from Leeds they were all jumping up and down with joy.....but now...well not so much jumping.

You can't underestimate a side with Rhodes, Lee, Novak, Ward and Roberts. There's enough firepower there to give any side in this division a headache. They're the one side I really don't want to meet in the play offs

Will this defeat and the one against the Owls count against their 2,530 match unbeaten run ...... or are they classed "null & void" in this statistic ?
