Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
No doubt they're talented lads, but let's be honest, they were working with a blank canvass at Lincoln, a club that had a complete fall, and they could build from the bottom.

A lot different going into a club relegated from the Prem, they won't be getting millionaires cleaning the changing rooms, and a few bad results in a town like that the fans won't give a fuck what they've done in the community. Wish them the best of luck though, always nice to see Hammers doing well.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
They have actually galvanised a City and really got involved with the community. They show a lot of class, which is a rare commodity in the football world!

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
People need to get over themselves about long ball football. The fact is that all the best ball playing footballers gravitate up to the better teams and thus coaches have to make do with the material they’ve got and find a way to get the best out of it. And this is what the Cowley brothers have done at Concord, Braintree and Lincoln.

Now they have moved over to Huddersfield and it will be interesting to see how they do in getting that squad playing and being effective enough to avoid relegation. I can see them making Huddersfield safe from relegation but the brothers will be managing at a level new to them and they will be new to handling players a step change better than those at Concord. They are an evolving pair as coaches, learning and improving as they go, and their attention to detail will hold them in good stead. It will require Huddersfield’s owners and fans to be patient but the Crowley’s will leave no stone unturned to get success.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Southend should have offered them the job a couple of years ago. Too late now, look at the state of Southend and where the Cowley's have gone. Not the smartest chariman is Ron Martin

They will struggle to even entice Sol Campbell now

Sven -long ball? I’m not sure I have noticed when I have watched Lincoln play

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
They'll have some Premier League dosh to play around with at Huddersfield for a good couple of seasons, so it'll be interesting to see if they change they way they set their teams out now considering they should have one of the better squads in that division.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield is a Championship club with recent Premier league experience
To say they should hold out for something ‘better’ is complete nonsense
The club is on a low after relegation so with some new impetus should be quite easy to push them up the table.
If they do well there other opportunities will come.

Be interested to see if they abandon the long ball shit now that they have some Premier league players at their disposal

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Only seen them in cup games against decent teams and I can't remember watching it and thinking what a long ball team they were.

Seemed to play ok stuff to me.

"play football according to the players and league they are playing in to get results."



Sounds familiar...

First managed Concord Rangers on Canvey Island.

Their record at all clubs is impressive.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
gph, precisely. They cut their cloth accordingly and have risen from non league football to the playoff places in League 1 in 3 years and play football according to the players and league they are playing in to get results.

As i've mentioned Danny and Nicky are life long friends and i know they will evolve the way their teams play with the quality they have at their disposal on better pitches and in higher quality footballing leagues. They are not a BFS dinosaur playing percentages and i for one think they have what it takes to manage at the top in time. I will enjoy watching their continued rise and hope they fulfill their potential.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Maybe they're pragmatists.

Perhaps they wouldn't have their teams play Allardyce-style football if they had players to fit another way of playing.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
I always had them nailed on for something like the QPR or Brentford job as soon as they became available.

Maybe Millwall is a step too far but they wouldn't be the first West Ham folk to end up huge legends at The Den 😋

Used to watch Danny play for Harlow. Decent player at that level

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Good luck to them ... come across as decent fella's

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Good luck to them as avid hammers making a difficult journey...but it sounds a bit like they make Big Sam look like an advocate of total football, so more than happy to watch their rise from afar!

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
they wouldn’t last 6 months here with their style of play

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
All lincoln's success is all down to them two also the work in the community they did was outstanding.
Use to make players clean the away dressing room on rota system to make them appreciate what they have.
Make a good job at Huddersfield and the next step is big time.

Re: Cowley brothers take over at Huddersfield Town
Should have held on at Lincoln until a decent club came calling. Not sure they'll be able to do much with 'uddersfield.
