Huddersfield manager Danny Cowley:”Here is the first stage for people, in business I believe they talk about 30-60-90-day stages, in soccer you do not always get as long, so perhaps we are speaking 15, 30 and 45-days, but surely within this initial process we need to audit the Club and determine what is great. No doubt we’re going to run with those and there’s some processes set up , we may run with the average ones because of the timeframe we’re working within.
“Certainly, we will examine the areas we could effect and where we could get some quick wins and where we believe we could have the maximum impact. We are going to look to implement those slowly but certainly, and we make change. We are going to want to see where we can find those wins.”
Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk: There’s not been a time. I am a new boss coming in and I feel that the key isn’t to over-bear the gamers with too much stuff that I want to do, but enough they can carry the concepts we are going to attempt to work and set them on the pitch.
“Games come thick and fast and we are likely to be going into a busy period, so we’ll try and operate in between that to attempt to make that better and clearer. It is quite a unique situation this weekend but I’ve really enjoyed it.”
It was out of his brother Nicky and Danny Cowley. Just over a week after turning down the opportunity to handle Huddersfield, he is going to be hauled in the dugout at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday because his side chooses on Sheffield Wednesday, live on Sky Sports Football.
Together with his brother and helper Nicky, have taken the jump from Lincoln – that are near the top of League One – to Huddersfield, currently with one league win in 2019 and inhabiting spot in the Championship.
Cowley may have heeded lessons when creating up the step to the Championship from managers that have struggled. Nathan Jones along with paul Hurst are two who have lately laboured after departing League One nightclubs, however the 40-year-old thinks he has what it takes to flip around the situation at Huddersfield. However, it won’t be a fast fix.
“This is a mindset thing,” he explained. “We’ve spoken to a lot of people round the team who believe they are just one win from changing that, but I’m not so sure.”
