Huddersfield Town owner Kevin Nagle takes a savage blow at Leeds United.

Despite troubles in the 2023/24 season, American businessman Kevin Nagle believes Huddersfield Town has “great competition ahead” with Leeds United. Leeds United is Yorkshire’s top Championship team after a stellar performance in 2024. As we approach the end of the season, the Whites are second in the table, three points behind leaders Leicester City. Promotion back to the Premier League at the first opportunity appears to be a strong probability.

While United are firmly in the mix for the title, their West Yorkshire counterparts Huddersfield Town are scrapping for survival. The Terriers, who held the Whites to a 1-1 draw earlier this month, despite playing the entire second half with 10 men following Jonathan Hogg’s sending off, have dropped into the relegation zone after suffering back-to-back league defeats. Sunday’s 4-1 hammering at the hands of West Bromwich Albion leaves them a point shy of safety with nine matches remaining.

Terriers owner Kevin Nagle came under fire from some United supporters after his “L**ds” jibe on social media in the lead up to the most recent meeting. Now the American businessman has told Whites fans to have “fun” and “enjoy” their push for promotion but is confident Town will knock them off their perch.

Nagle stated in his most recent video diary on X: “I don’t know what to say; I just figured that the supporters at Leeds have a lot of free time. Thank you for following our social media. I know they’re enjoying what’s going on right now.

“But heh, I will say to those fans that are watching from Leeds right now ‘have fun, enjoy it now because it is not always going to be like this.'”As you know, the owners are good friends of mine. They’re great people. There will be some fierce competition ahead. To the Leeds guys: laugh all you want!

United handily defeated Town at Elland Road in October, winning 4-1. Both Dan James and Crysencio Summerville scored a brace to put the Whites four nil ahead at halftime.
“I go to Leeds; I enjoy a lot of restaurants there,” Nagle added. “I know folks there.

“But, when it comes to matchdays, we’ll see what happens. We will meet them again in the future. Don’t think it’s goodbye time. It ain’t over, number one, and number two, they still have a ways to go, but I look forward to some great bouts in the future.
