Sheffield news Abysmal 7-0 defeat at Norwich a frightening reminder of Terriers' flaws PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The Terriers have another seven games and should put themselves well clear of the relegation fight, but while defeat was expected at Carrow Road made clear how unreliable they remain
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Beat Rotherham on Saturday and it’s fine. Beat Rotherham on Saturday and it’s fine. Beat Rotherham on Saturday and it’s fine. That’s the mantra Huddersfield Town fans must cling to like a life preserver after what is, we believe, the worst defeat the Terriers have suffered since the infamous 10-1 defeat to Manchester City in November 1987. Nobody expected Carlos Corberan to take his side to Carrow Road and claim a win, and even hopes of a point seemed remote given how far ahead of a poor set of Championship teams Daniel Farke’s Norwich are. Get in, stink out the place with dour safety-first football, lose 2-0, and everyone shrugs their shoulders and says: oh well. We were never going to win that anyway.

Norwich produced the most sensational display of attacking football we have seen at this level for many years, it is worth pointing out. Let’s take a moment to give that the credence it deserves… …before acknowledging that the Terriers made it so, so easy for them, too. Standing off their men. Failing to close down second balls. Putting themselves in situations where defenders could be done for pace.

. Acting indecisively when decisive action was required. The complete absence of a midfield. The entire first half was a litany of errors from Corberan’s side. This was nothing like the team that had looked infinitely more savvy and streetwise and scrappy and determined in their five games without defeat going into this game. After giving a game to good opposition against Brentford on Saturday, Town regressed to their callow worst, not helped by their best player of recent weeks, Lewis O'Brien, being moved out of his best position to be deployed in a left wing-back role that he has played before and invariably struggled in. It is clear that Corberan’s approach was all wrong, but the tactical examination and associated criticism will come later. The bottom line is that whatever the gameplan was supposed to be, the players executed it dreadfully. There are neither silver linings nor scapegoats here; just 90 minutes of misery.
Town’s season will not be defined by games like this and the 5-0 defeat at Bournemouth in December, but those two games punctuate the season and show just how far the Terriers still have to go; how thin this squad runs when half a dozen injuries bite at the wrong time and in the wrong situation. To go through this once in a season and learn from it is one thing, but to repeat it – only worse – four months later is worrying. We thought the pendulum of Town’s form had finally stopped swinging from one extreme to the other quite so wildly, and while it may prove to be utterly inconsequential in the end, it is a horrible feeling for all concerned. We can only hope this experience does not have any lasting effects. Beat Rotherham on Saturday and it’s fine…at least, as far as the relegation race is concerned. But Town need the psychic wounds from this chastening experience to heal immediately.
