Transfer mad Terriers still favourites for the drop

Despite their heavy investment in the transfer market, Bookmakers still believe that Huddersfield Town are destined from the drop.

Huddersfield have wasted little time in boosting their squad following their Championship play-off final victory – as well as handing a new deal to boss David Wagner, they have brought in a host of players – breaking their own transfer record on no less than three occasions already this summer.

Steve Mounie, Tom Ince, Danny Williams, Kasey Palmer, Jonas Lossl, Scott Malone, Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre have all arrived and more are expected.

However, despite this – Bookmakers are largely unmoved – BetVictor still make them 1/2 favourites to be relegated – despite the recent investment in the squad.

We spoke to BetVictor’s Head of antepost Football Michael Triffitt to get the inside track on how they rate Huddersfield…or not.

“Huddersfield fans will be delighted the club are flexing their muscles in the transfer market and adding to the squad strength,” he told us.

“However Town are still been well backed for relegation at 1-2 and they remain favourites at 2-1 to finish bottom. It’s still hard to imagine it will be anything but a season of struggle for the West Yorkshire outfit and we expect them to be battling against the drop this campaign.”

We also spoke with sports writer and Huddersfield fan Rob Stewart, for his take on the situation and he said: “Town have already been written off by people like Newcastle legend Malcolm MacDonald but the recent spate of incoming transfers and David Wagner’s managerial nous and his ‘no limits’ mantra would suggest it would be foolish to take the Terriers lightly.

“They’re clearly ready to make a go of it when they hit the Premier League and such is the feel good factor around the town that anything is possible but survival will still be a major achievement.”
