It just turns out that Huddersfield manager David Wagner was at St. James’ Park last night to watch two of his promotion competitors in Newcastle United and Norwich City.
But it turns out he didn’t see the dramatic conclusion of the game in stoppage time when Newcastle scored twice in the last 90 seconds to win the game because he had left early to beat the traffic.
David heard the dramatic end of the game on his car radio – but he says he thought Newcastle deserved to win the game because they were the better side.
David Wagner – Huddersfield manager
OK – that’s good – but if you are Norwich that means nothing because if you are 3-2 up with less than a couple of minutes to play in the game you should be able to hang on.
This is what David said to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner:
“I got the final result on my drive home.” “To be fair, I think Newcastle deserved their win. In my opinion, they were the better team on the night.”
Huddersfield are the surprise team of the Championship so far after 10 games played and they are leading the league.
They have 22 points from 10 games played and next up they visit Ipswich on Saturday in the last round of games before the two week International break.
If Huddersfield lose to Ipswich Town and Norwich lose at Wolves tomorrow night then Newcastle have a chance to top the league if we beat Rotherham on the road on Saturday.
That would be good.
