Notts County 1-2 Blades
“Fuck sake, we should have won that. Beaten by another bizarre lucky goal. “
“3 wins in 15. 18th. Classic Notts “
“Fucking hell, deserved at least a point there, shame Garry Thompson missed that one on one and then went to sleep for their second goal. Gotta take your chances.
At least we’re not playing shit though. Murphy was class for Sheff Utd, the rest…meh “
“I was absolutely amazed of the work rate. Unlucky not to get something “
“i felt we deserved a draw at least!!! “
“Close game. Notts were unlucky”
“You have to take your chances against the big teams and we didn’t, simple as that “
“5 mins extra time and we don’t bring on another striker? Absolutely ridiculous. Derry to blame 100%. 9 home losses, a joke.”
“ 3000 away fans on a Tuesday night is something else. Fair play.”
“Unlucky. Played well against a strong side. “
“Gutted! Didn’t deserve to lose based on that 2nd half performance. Football can be a cruel game. Unlucky guys! Keep it going! “
“same old. Team brings a big away following, we lose. “
“best football I’ve seen at meadow lane for a while. So unlucky not to come away with something”
“ LETS ALL BE POSITIVE EVEN THOUGH WE LOST AT HOME AGAIN”
“Decent game but gulf in class ultimately saw Sheff Utd through “
“Looks like we will be 18th after tonights one sided affair “
“ ‘One-sided’ – didn’t go again then? “
“Thought it was quite decent when we knocked it about and teed up Noble on the edge of the box only for him to blaze over. Or Badger controlled it and played a delightful through ball for Thompson, only for him to hit it straight at the keeper with the whole goal to aim at. Both at 1-1.
But y’know, Derry out and that. Danny Wilson’s available now as well. “
“I went tonight with my 10 year-old nephew. We both thought Notts played well despite the result. I don’t know what you two expect against teams with resources to stick Davies and JCR on the bench, but I think if you want to continue to support Notts and lead a sane life then you may wish to manage your expectations.”
“Losing to Sheffield United at ML in itself isn’t an unacceptable result, but I can understand why people are ****ed off in the context of recent results and our home form. “
“What pi.sses me off is the fact we can’t win at home against shi.te teams who aren’t much better than us!
Sheffield are nothing fooking special and were there for the taking. “
“For the first 30mins we were in awe of them and allowed them to pass it around and dictate the game but when we scored the game changed for quite a while.
The rest of the first half and right up to them scoring their second we gave as good as we got and were the better side much of the time.
Look at the depth of their squad one of their players cost more than all of our squad put together.
The majority of the crowd gave the players a good reception at the end even tho’ we lost.”
“I thought we played well tonight and restricted a good side to very few chances. We showed them too much respect in the first half but we finally showed some character in the second when we were the better side. When we pressed them and out worked them we could easily have gone on to win the game “
“We didn’t deserve to lose at all.
I can understand (but far from agree with) the Derry/Abbott out stuff after some of the dross served up at home this season – but not tonight. “
“Apart from the first 25 minutes I thought we played well tonight. We created quite a few chances and with a bit more luck could have had 2 or 3. I think a draw would have been a fair result and considering the quality they have that isn’t a bad thing.”
“Everyone spent the entire week talking about Sheff Utd having a million pound full-back and all these attacking players and how we’d get beat 4-0 and 5-0 in the predictions thread. Then, we actually play well, are a Garry Thompson one-on-one from probably winning, Sheff Utd score twice from their only two real sniffs at goal and it’s MAYHEM. “
“despite losing 2-1 it was our best performance in a while. County started off slowly and Sheff Utd went ahead through a great finish by Murphy. County equalised against the run of play and were competitive for most of the second half before Sheff Utd went ahead with a backheel similar to Noble’s for our equaliser
The fact that we were applauded off the pitch today instead of booed shows that it was an improvement. We were beaten by a better Sheff Utd side though “
“We just let them take the throw-in quickly cod Hayhurst wasn’t switched on then Muzzy gave Murphy a bit too much room, no worse than what every team does 5 times a game, hardly put it in the net for them, just gave him too much space and he twatted it in the top corner…Neither goal was terrible defending, just both avoidable. Pretty much the only two sniffs they got all game.
It was a good performance, not calling it incredible but we did enough to get a result against Sheff Utd. “
“we deserved to win & They scored a scrappy goal”
.”Good performance in the second half I thought and we definitely deserved to get something out of the game, we had some good chances if the one on one Thompson had with their goalie had gone in it could have been a different game. Bajner was unlucky with his chance too.”
“OMG we didnt deserve to lose that game. We played fantastic ”
“Jamie Murphy is a very good footballer“
“I thought we went out scared and expected to lose, then realised we had a chance. After that we should have romped it.”
“Theres something about Sheffield United that brings the best out in us”
“We let them control the first 30 minutes but once Noble scored they lost it a bit, even their winner looked a bit of a fluke. We were well worth a point overall, but we need to match this level of performance for the rest of the season.”
“I thought we deserved at least a point. And tho we lost it was one of the better home performances of the season against a very good side.”
“We started off shi.te and they ran the 1st half and we scored against the run of play…2nd half we decided to go on the front foot against and nearly scored when Thompson was one on one. For the first time they looked shaky but if nothing else they are well organised and play to their strengths.
Whoever scored for them looked like he helped the ball in with his hand, but I might be wrong.
Also gotta say that their crowd numbers were impressive but the noise they make was shi.te.
And who was that little tw.t at the front with his Dad in the black puffa jacket giving it the big un to Notts fans for 90 mins?lol
Scruffy Yorkshire tramp. “
“joker in the black puffa with his dad
I don’t think he or his old man watched the game…all they did for the whole match was make v signs and wan.ker signs to the Notts group of fans to the left of the Kop in full view of the stewards who did nothing at all!
The old man just stared at the group of Notts fans non stop(the lads who put the banners up)!
“I think they were the Blunts’ firm. Talk about scraping the barrel! “
“The lad was going mental and I might be wrong but did his bird flash her ti.ts when they scored the winner?
His old man/uncle or whatever just stared and stared and stared at some of our lot! “
“Yorkshire born Yorkshire bred strong in t’arm weak in t’head”
“Only heard them sing ‘Scabs’ once in the 1st half.
I look forward to that tune! “
“The state of them United mongs on the front row….Christ”
“Sheff Utd fan was making the wanker gestures at the kop all the way through the game, 5 feet away from the stewards and nothing was done!”
“The Notts fans responded so I dont see the problem”
“so what ? get a grip or don’t go if you feel offended so easy if somethings done we’ll have no fans home or away”
