For the first time since 2015/16, Burnley are starting a new campaign in the Championship. For the first time since 2012/13 they’re starting a new campaign with someone other than Sean Dyche at the helm. It’s a big season for Burnley as they look to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking, under the stewardship of Kompany who is experiencing just his third season as a manager.
Kompany and Burnley have been pretty busy in the transfer window so far, signing eight new players including three from his former club Manchester City. Aro Muric and CJ Egan-Riley have both been signed permanently, while Taylor Harwood-Bellis is on loan, and Kompany may well be hoping for more Man City influence before the window is up.
Huddersfield are also starting the 2022/23 campaign with a new manager, as Danny Schofield has replaced Carlos Corberan, who resigned at the end of last season. The departure came as a bit of a shock to Huddersfield, as Corberan had led the Terriers to the Play-Off final, only narrowly losing to Nottingham Forest.
But Schofield isn’t resting on the squad that got Huddersfield to the Play-Off final, especially with Harry Toffolo and Lewis O’Brien joining Forest (and Levi Colwill’s loan ending). The Terriers have so far made six new signings, including Tino Anjorin on loan from Chelsea having taking the youngster on a temporary move in the second half of last season.
