“We need a result tomorrow”
“This will be our 4th straight away win if we get a victory”
“4th win on the trot away for the Vale? 3rd defeat on the trot for the Blades? Obvious score draw”
“unfortunately when we play any other team who are going through a bad spell we always seem to end their bad run by gifting them a win. We are nice like that”
“It’s always a good day there.”
“apart from 2-3 certain starters, I don’t think it particularly matters who make the XI as long as they are ‘up for it’ and show more grit and determination than on Tuesday.
One of the worst aspects in the week was how easily we accepted defeat and we never really looked energetic enough to get the goal back.
I don’t know how SU play, but they are one of the better teams in the league and this is one of our hardest away games. Luckily, I don’t think they have a tall team and instead play the ball on the ground a lot more, which may or may not suit our defenders. In defence, I don’t think we have the players to make a huge difference. They lack physicality and power and a ticking off isn’t going to change that.”
“Season is effectively over so I’d like to see some of our younger players given ago, although maybe that should start with a home game rather than a tricky away one.”
“for those saying stick the kids in, we’re still6 points short of being safe yet. The league is so tight this year its likely we’ll need 54 points to be certain of staying up. Lets get there then give them a run out.”
“Is this the worst ever Vale defence in your living memory? Any defence with Kevin Steggles in has to be a contender.”
“With a couple of exceptions, we are just going through the motions”
“The fact that this pathetic defence vastly improved when a 19 years old inexperienced on load defender ,was involved says it all”
