It would be a despondent Championship club that did not harbour even the slightest ambition of promotion to the Premier League.
And there are very few despairing Town fans at the moment despite recent encouraging results.
However, it was “promotion” of another kind that was a recurring theme at last week’s meeting between Nigel Clibbens and HTSA representatives.
Incoming HTSA Chairman, Ian Lawrence, was keen to find out how HTSA could “promote” the great work being done by Huddersfield Town and add his own weight to the Wagner Revolution.
In return, Mr Clibbens, and his colleagues from the club’s Media & Communications Department, put forward the club’s vision of a successful “Supporters Trust”.
Ironically for HTSA, these good times of revolution and expectation can foster a complacent “We’re all right Jack” attitude among supporters, something HTSA are eager to avoid.
A criticism sometimes levelled at the association in the past has been that the main focus is on a minority of supporters.
This could not be further from the truth, but dispelling the myth is not easy.
A “What’s in it for me?” view conveniently ignores HTSA’s tireless work in the days of administration and the eventual return of the stadium shares.
People query: “What do I get for my membership fee?”
Ask Ian, he may have had some spare time when he accepted the role of Chair, but three lengthy meetings last week as well as trips to Reading and Brighton seriously filled the white space in his diary.
HTSA representatives also attended the FSF/SD meeting in London and our thanks go to Bob Pepper, Bob Farrell and Paul Hollas for flying the HTSA flag and giving Town supporters a voice beyond the Kirklees boundary.
The hard work goes on for all Town fans.
There was a winning start to 2016 at Bolton, but unfortunately, for several minutes towards the end of the game, a group of Huddersfield supporters had their view of the game seriously obstructed by stewards who, in conjunction with Greater Manchester Police, had been instructed to stand around the perimeter of the pitch.
This is not an uncommon practise at all grounds. It could be argued that in moments of high excitement, towards the end of the game, supporters can always get to their feet or, if space allows, move a few seats to the side in order to improve their view of the action.
Unfortunately these options were not available to the Town fans who were sitting in the area designated for disabled supporters.
Nor is it always an option for the elderly or younger supporters who are not tall enough to see beyond the hi-viz security jackets.
One supporter did approach the stewards to voice their concerns but was told to return to his seat and his objections were ignored.
HTSA have now raised the issue with an apologetic Bolton Wanderers and Town fans can rest assured that their own gegenpressing association will continue to do all they can to ensure that every supporter enjoys an uninterrupted view of every game until the final whistle.
Bolton Wanderers Supporters have recognised the importance of having a single voice and have now set up a Supporters Trust. HTSA welcome them to SD.
A £250 prize awaits the HTSA member who holds the following numbers, (5)5466. It could be shown on the membership card as (135)5466.
