Good signing for Huddersfield. I think he would have done well under De Boer. Man City slapped sell-on and buy back clauses on the deal, which suggests he's reasonably highly rated.

Got to laugh at some of the comments on this thread, some right judges.

Many on here thought he was S..T when up for grabs, showed Puncheon how to play that midfield role. Oh Well!!!

Show's what people on this thread know about football !

Mooy was superb yesterday again and people commenting on his lack of mobility or lead feet, MOTD put up a graphic where he was ranked first in distance covered and passes in the opposition box...

I don't expect him to have the same influence against the larger sides but he's def proven his worth against the palaces and Newcastles of this world so far!

MacArthur, Ledley, Jedi would probably all cut it against Huddersfield.

Once again, great business by Huddersfield.

Really isn't much of a risk buying the best from the Championship for under 10mil.

Oh really? Cambell (gone now), Mutch, Sako and Lee have all been considered the best players in that division in their careers, yet are clearly not good enough at this level. The risk? We have these players on our wage bill and can't offload them because nobody wants them or aren't willing to match the wages they're currently on, prohibiting us from making further additions because we can't increase the wage bill (FFP), not necessarily because we don't have the transfer funds.

None of those players you named I would consider ever being close to top 3 over an entire season.

Mooy was arguably the best player from the Championship last season.

Think I read yesterday that Huddersfield also had the youngest ever Premier League opening day XI against us - with an average age of 25.

Not only has Wagner done exceptionally to get them promoted but to do so with such a young squad is fantastic long term planning from him/the owners. Really think they will stay up this year.

Very impressed with Huddersfield's preparations for surviving long-term in the Premiership ,
They also have the bonus of a relatively new stadium that only need tweaking for the Premiership media and heated pitch etc ,

I wish them the best of luck as they deserve huge reward for their foresight and long-term planning , As you say their young and talented squad boosted by sensible buys in June/July puts them in a good stead even if they are relegated, Which I think is unlikely .

As the poster above said there was also Bamford, who actually won Championship player of the year.

Mutch was highly thought of in the Championship and even had an excellent season with Cardiff in the Prem. Then got a move to QPR and then we signed him. Campbell was one of the best if not the best striker when he played in the Championship, and had a few decent seasons in the Prem.

Lee played in the Championship for 3 or 4 season with Bolton and had registered the most assists in the entire football league in that time frame. He was rated extremely highly, Bolton fans love him, and was one of the best creative midfielders in the division.

Sako likewise, who was in the Championship team of the year the season before joining, and had scored 15 goals. He was the best winger in the division that year, and great the season before that too. Even Ince was found out at this level. Didn't particularly convince me when we played Huddersfield either.

Not sure why you think strikers are "riskier" than creative midfielders in terms of stepping up a division. For every Bamford and Campbell there's a Mutch, Lee, and Sako. Murray and Gayle aren't quite good enough for this level either (imo), but excellent Championship players.

I can even think of other, non-Palace examples such as Almen Abdi and Matej Vidra, the latter won Championship player of the year, who are great players in the division below but nowhere near good enough at Prem level.

Face it, getting the best players from the Championship isn't as great an idea as many think. Mooy is an exception, although still early doors. Trippier is an exception, as is Bolasie, but there aren't too many.
