Chris Powell to become Huddersfield manager

According to the BBC, Chris Powell has been offered the manager's job at Huddersfield Town: Chris Powell. Alex Dyer will be joining him as assistant. (The BBC has just confirmed that the appointment has taken place). The announcement on the official Huddersfield Town site can be found here: Chris Powell

A round of second interviews were held with three candidates. As well as Chris Powell, they were thought to include Coventry City manager Stephen Pressley and possibly caretaker manager Mark Lillis.

When Chris returns to The Valley with his new side, Charlton fans will want to show their appreciation of his efforts for the club. I am pleased that he has found a new post so that he can develop as a manager.

Given the number of meetings there have been between the two clubs in recent years, the Terriers should already be quite familiar to their new manager.

It is very good news. Irrespective of all views on his departure and our owner, I'm sure we all wish him the very best and will give him the acknowledgement he deserves on 28 Feb.

Yep. Good luck Chris. Personal integrity is worth fighting for. I'm glad yours is still intact. You will always be revered in my eyes for the role you played for our club both as player and manager.

Yes, a great man , great integrity and excellent player for our club, never quite convinced about his managerial skills but I wish him well and he now has a second chance to see what he can do.

430Its good to see that Sir Chris has a new position as a manager. He was dealt a poor hand in his last 18 months at Charlton, and its a mark of his personal qualities that didn't complain.
