They narrowly avoided the drop last season and once again it appears as if thats the target.

Huddersfield Town Premier League Fixtures, Squad, Guide

A season of consolidation is the target for Huddersfield after surviving their first season back in the top flight for 45 years. The club were recruiting this summer, signing Egypt midfielder Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City, £5m), Ben Hamer (Leicester, free) and Swiss defender Florent Hadergjonaj (Ingolstadt, £4.5m) while also turning loans for Jonas Lossl and Terence Kongolo into permanent deals.

Annual wage bill – £11m (2017)

Annual income – £15.8m (2017)

Stadium John Smith’s (24,500)

Odds – 1,000/1 to win Premier League

FAN’S VIEW

LAST SEASON WAS… 

Excellent. It had its ups and downs but to remain in the Premier League was a fantastic achievement.

OUR BIGGEST HERO 

Christopher Schindler. The German defender rightly scooped the Player of the Year trophy at the end of the season after a terrific campaign at the heart of the Huddersfield defence. He took to life in the Premier League like a duck to water and never once looked out of place.

OUR BIGGEST VILLAIN 

It is difficult to single out a villain, considering it was such a fantastic team achievement to stay in the Premier League with what was effectively a Championship squad.

YOUNGSTER TO WATCH 

Rarmani Edmonds-Green. The 19-year-old looks a classy centre-back, comfortable on the ball with pace and power to match.

MOST UNDERRATED PLAYER

Outside of Huddersfield, not many people will know the influence of Jonathan Hogg. The midfielder is a machine and just never stops running from start to finish. We miss his steel in the centre of the park when he’s not in the team. He does the dirty work that is needed and gives licence to the other players to go forward.

HOPES & FEARS FOR 2018-19 

Hopes: not to be in a relegation battle with three games left! I hope we can build on last year’s survival and kick on to avoid relegation comfortably. Fears: the “second season syndrome”, but we’ve had a taste of it now. I hope our lack of goalscoring ability doesn’t come back to haunt us either.
