WHAT a great time to be a Huddersfield Town fan!

The German influence has certainly taken the proud old Yorkshire club in an intriguing new direction .

It seems that something pretty good is happening both on the pitch and in the stands.

Counting the Liverpool friendly, the last three home games have drawn a combined attendance of 59,646.

It’s going on 50 years since that last happened.

And even the most staunchly glass-half-empty Town supporters must be having their outlook gegenpressed, the German expression for David Wagner’s full-throttle football .

It’s very early days, and who knows how far Town can go.

But it looks like being an eventful and exciting journey.

Wagner’s side were far from flawless in the derby against Barnsley.

They need to look after the ball better, for a start, and allowing Alfie Mawson to climb and head home from his fellow centre-back Marc Roberts’ impressively long throw to equalise early in the second half was a disappointment.

But Town still managed to force a third win in four Championship games against a decent side who have made a bright start to the season themselves.

That was thanks to a sweetly-struck stoppage-time goal by Jonathan Hogg, only his second for Town and the third of the 27-year-old midfielder’s career.

The opener, equally appealing to the eye, had come from left-back Chris Lowe, his fellow German, on-loan frontman Elias Kachunga, providing the assists on both occasions.

That’s seven league goals from seven different players, with Kachunga, Kasey Palmer, Nahki Wells, Jack Payne and Michael Hefele on the mark over the preceding games against Brentford, Newcastle United (both beaten 2-1) and Aston Villa, who were held 1-1.

Wagner is also shaping matches with his substitutions.

In each game so far, players have come off the bench to claim crucial goals (Palmer against Brentford, Payne at Newcastle, Hefele at Villa and now Hogg against Barnsley).

Town have had some moments of good fortune at key times, illustrated against Barnsley when a miscued back pass by Dean Whitehead, who replaced Hogg in the starting XI, gave Stefan Payne a golden opportunity to put the Reds ahead, only for the former Dover Athletic man to hit keeper Danny Ward’s left-hand post.

This is how David Wagner will reward his team for their flying start to the season

Wagner later quoted the German saying ‘only the hard worker has luck’ - and the industry he demands from his players is there for all to see.

So is the fitness which is so important when making gegenpressing work, and Town have finished all their matches strongly, each time netting inside the final 11 minutes.

As well as bringing in some good players, the boss has, on the evidence of the season so far, added resilience and self-belief to his squad.

There’s a long, long way to go, but last season, it took Town seven matches to get a win and nine to reach the 10 points they have currently accrued.

It’s a very solid base from which to go forward, with Wolves the next to try to stall the Wgner revolution.
