"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

Huddersfield's dilemma

Share/Save

There was a time when Huddersfield Town were one of the giants of English football, but then manager Herbert Chapman left fot Arsenal.   Recently they have been in the lower reaches of the Championshop and the author of the Swiss Ramble blog has taken his usual forensic look at their situation.

In 2014/15 they made a pre-tax loss of £7m.  Chairman Dean Hoyle has pumped in £45m in loans and share capital.   They need to become financially self-sufficient, but there is no easy route to achieving that.
