    Hudds vs Wigan – Match Report

    When I first started reading this article.. it seemed like a fairly accurate write-up, giving credit where credit is due.

    However, this Colin Young fella just couldn’t resist including the usual bullsh*t regarding our away following.

    “…it might have made life interesting for the visitors and a travelling contingent who would be lucky to fill one row at Wembley”

    They just can’t resist.

    And not to forget the “…Callum Woods’ cross lifted the 12,000-plus home fans” line.

    The “Match Facts” section of the article states that the official attendance was 12,117..

    This means that we must only have taken a MAXIMUM of 117 fans.

    Incredible.

    Journalists taking the piss with factually incorrect information?

    Football experts and my colleagues tipping us for relegation ?

    Looks like its business as usual for us starting with 3 points v Reading B)

    Those football experts and colleagues of your Salford sound like a right bunch of Kevin Websters.

    But he’s included that line for one reason – to make out like our following was p*ss poor.

    Is 2600/2700 away fans at Huddersfield really a poor following, considering it was also televised?

    Was it really necessary to include that comment?
    If we’d took a couple hundred, then fair enough – but even then, what does it matter?

    Nothing wrong with that away following.

    TV commentator praised the away support and said “2000+ of them and they’ve made a decent din”.

    Looked a good following when the camera panned right down the pitch. 2 and half-3000 I reckon.

    Easily!

    Also, there was an amazing topic on Huddersfield’s forum after the game, hailing us as the “worst set of fans [he had] ever seen”.

    He went on to write that we DIDN’T make ANY noise until after we scored our 3rd goal? (Pretty sure when I watched it back, I could hear us singing before the first whistle, all the way through to the end – and loud too).

    We then apparently went silent again when they scored, but did make a “little bit” of noise when our 4th went in.

    Hilarious how bitter & deluded certain folk become after a good ol’ tonking!

    The journo is a RL Journo……………….now i know i bang on about the whole RL bitterness toward us, but……..yet more instances of this nature , back my claim up even more.

    Maybe he’s bitter about the fact over 4k more turned up to watch our 2nd string (when on itv1) in a cup game , than what turned up to watch a top flight rl game between 2 unbeaten sides (at the time) at the “birthplace of rugby league”……………He didn’t mention the rl crowd did he,just a thought like :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    good day folks x

    I’m gonna stick my neck out and say they’re wrong..

    I’m not having that there was less than 2000 there.
    I reckon it was somewhere around the 2300-2500 mark.

    You can stick your neck wherever you want, but that’s the right number, believe me. I have absolutely nothing to gain by making it up. ;)

    I don’t think the noise travels very well tbh. I commented on the Saturday that there was more atmosphere in space but some Hudds fans said they were real loud.

    I don’t agree with the figure but it must be right.
