I’d like to wish Huddersfield Town good luck over the Christmas period, because they desperately need some productive results.
This is such an important time in the season to start not losing games.
You don’t necessarily have to win all the time, but it’s vital to keep that points tally ticking along.
It’s all about the dressing room mentality when you are playing games and not losing.
I’ve seen how it affects people in an incredible way and players change their approach because they’ve got more belief.
Everybody on the pitch seems to have that bit more enthusiasm, everybody wants the ball and you tend to start games with more energy than if you’ve lost the previous match.
I can’t emphasise how important it is not to lose, although achieving a good solid run at this time of year is never straightforward, I’m afraid.
Town’s new head coach David Wagner has seen plenty of good things from his players so far – and a few bad things as well – and it’s been a big change in emphasis for the club.
I really do hope it pays dividends over the next few months and supporters are celebrating the wins – and points – to push Town up the Championship table.
All that’s left to do now is to wish all Town fans and Examiner readers a very merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
I’m having a week off now, but I’ll be back in the New Year, when hopefully Town will have made progress against Preston North End, QPR away and Bolton over in Lancashire.
