Blades 1-2 Crewe
” Sheffield United underestimated us and Clough has no idea against us. NEXT! “
“Hang on we played 3 up front and we’re actually winning?
Who’s the fraud in charge and what has he done with Davis?”
“Never thought Id see us win at bramall lane in my lifetime. Fantastic effort by everyone involved.”
“Just got in from taking my son to a birthday party and can’t believe my eyes. WTF!!!!!!”
“Not a coincidence that when we set up attackingly like we did today that we pick up a decent result. We’ve got the players but SD needed to find the way of getting the best out of them and he has today thankfully. Credit where credits due.”
“Amazing what a bit of positivity does for you.”
“What a win that was. Started a bit shakily, got back into the game and went ahead with a good bit of play by Ikpeazu to lay in LDV to score.
Ajose then blew 2 great chances to score, first one he tried a lay across to LDV when it was never on and the 2nd he side footed it straight at the keeper. After that, we were under the cosh for most of the first half, but despite a couple of shaky moments, never looked badly troubled. Rachubka was not properly tested.
2nd half, we again were on the back foot for a decent portion of the half, but again didn’t look like conceding until we did. Poor long ball read by Turton, then he lets Murphy back him into the penalty area and play a pass. Nice touch and goal by Holt mind, but still sloppy defending.
After that, neither side looked much like scoring, few half chances here and there. Looked like the game was going to peter out to a 1-1 draw, but then we actually showed some attacking intent late in the game. Grant makes a strong run into their half and wins a free kick. Coco hits the free kick off a Sheff U player for a corner. He then receives the short corner, cuts inside and unleashes a thunderbolt of a shot. Bit of dip and swerve, but yeah, awful keeping by Howard.
After that we saw the game out pretty well. A draw would have been a fair result, but we snatched the win and I suppose the fans deserved this after weeks of utterly appalling football. Huge 3 points which takes us to within a couple of wins of safety.”
“as for Sheff U, they looked just like they did back when we played them 3 times back in October/November. Decent enough ball players and tidy build up, but they lack end product and bar the goal, our keeper didn’t have a serious save to make. You can see why they are where they are. Murphy was excellent as per, we always struggle against him. I was mystified when Baxter was taken off for Doyle. Ok, the former wasn’t having a good game, but taking off an attacking midfielder for a defensive one? Strange.
They’ll make the play offs, but not sure if they’ll go up out of them. But the play offs are a lottery, so you never know.”
“3 strikers? – at Brammall Lane?
Well done Gaffer!”
“When I saw the line-up thought total lunacy. So credit where credit’s due”
“Was going to complain that we only had 1 shot and a goal till they equalised on 50+ mins,adding only another 4 shots and a goal.
Is it a case of quality over quantity,luck or something else thats missing.
Sorry to sound negative after a fantastic win,but…….”
“Great effort today – just goes to show how quickly things can change following BC, Preston, Rochdale & Oldham results and performances.
Bold team selection which paid off”
“A massive win today and a lot of credit has to go to Steve for this win, no luck in this game even sky admitted we were worth the win, well deserved by everyone involved including those supporters who made the trip over. The best part is this win will keep the trolls quiet, where is Paul by the way. Biggest win of the season and probably most unexpected”
“Credit to everyone today, good team selection which I think took Sheffield by surprise.
We were excellent in the first half, and started the second half well, should have been two up but for Uche’s greed.
Sheffield were decent if not a touch one dimensional”
“Crewe scoring a LATE Goal ! Your Joking! You can not be serious! Well glad to be wrong for Once!”
“I too was surprised by a late winner for the Mighty Reds. who knew Uche could pass the ball!! “
“Should have known the Alex would win. Always do well when there is no Football League Show.”
“hope that he realises that attack is the best form of defence”
“Started with three strikers at Bramall Lane and won the game. Fortune favours the brave”
“Just what we needed and a good defensive performance “
“our first win at Bramall Lane”
“Nobody can wipe the smile on my face! Absolutely buzzing “
“Unbelievable result! Completely unexpected”
“We beat who we want, we beat who we want, Crewe Alex we beat who we want. Stick yer Yorkshire pudding up yer arse! “
“That was quite possibly the best moment this year “
“There are few certainties in life. One of them is that Crewe Alexadnra never win at Sheff Utd……..”
“Quality away day at Sheffield Utd! I hope we’ve messed up all your accumulators “
“All thos sayng ‘Davies out’ will be quiet this week”
“From the sounds of it Sheffield United did their low cross along the six yard box trick to nowhere yet again.”
“Blades’ fans are fuming. Little old Crewe beating them at home! GET IN!!”
“We’ll never fear a blades side managed by Nigel Clough. He’s clueless on ruthlessness”
“This is why I love supporting Crewe, we literally had no right to win away at Sheffield these are the wins we need to keep us up”
“Absolute horse shit last week, haven’t won away in years, go to a team in the top in 6 and win welcome to the world of Crewew Alexandra”
“And here come all the people bitching about Crewe ruining there acca”
