The QPR manager was functioning as a pundit for Sky Sports in the start out on the 2016/17 Championship season and predicted Huddersfield would finish 23rd inside the table, just a single spot off the bottom.
He mentioned back in August: “I haven’t seen much progression from the club through the back finish of last season. [Head coach] David Wagner is quite inexperienced and if benefits turn, then they might struggle to turn points around.”
Well, Huddersfield surely proved him incorrect as they finished the Championship campaign in fifth and won promotion for the Premier League via the play-offs just after beating Reading 4-3 on penalties in Monday’s final at Wembley Stadium.
The Terriers squad hit back at Holloway by chanting his name in the post-match dressing space celebrations.
David Wagner also had words for Holloway, noting: “By the way, Ian Holloway, each of the ideal for subsequent season. I know quite a bit in the pundits wrote us off in the start of your season.”
Even owner Dean Hoyle got involved. “I’ve just been inside the dressing area, and they are all singing about Ian Holloway,” he told the BBC. “I assume it truly is Ian who has driven us on this season!”
