Sheffield news Danny Schofield's good company among Huddersfield Town bosses as history repeats PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The new Terriers head coach was defeated in his first game after taking the role on a permanent basis, but the Town record books show he is far from alone in that
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Herbert Chapman, Neil Warnock, David Wagner and Carlos Corberan are not bad company for Danny Schofield to keep, even if it is for the wrong reason: the Huddersfield Town head coach got off to a losing start in charge of Town, just like those luminaries before him. That has been the way more often than not for new permanent Terriers gaffers over the past 30 years, with Schofield the 18th person to take charge of the club full-time over that span and the 14th to lose his first league game. Only Lee Clark and Simon Grayson started their reigns with wins, while Peter Jackson’s second spell and Stan Ternent’s doomed tenure began with draws. We know that fans already understand that new head coaches need time to get things going, and there is an apparent willingness from the Terriers faithful to extend that courtesy to Schofield.
