Barnsley 0-2 Sheff Utd
“did their keeper have a shot to save? Awful performance.”
“We’ve made a very mediocre side look like world beaters.”
“Beaten us in every department, fair and square”
“had to be against that lot too! theres not much in this division apart from the top 4. on our day we are as good of not better
than most of the rest, lets hope we have 6 or so good days before the end of the season”
“Sheffield United came and did a job on us. We tried to break through, the effort was there, but we werent good enough, it’s as
simple as that. “
“It’s been a magnificent run and it’s Sod’s law it has ended against the Blunts.”
“The not losing streak had to end sometime but WHY oh! WHY did it have to be..
..the blunts that ended it?? Following Barnsley is one long succession of disappointments punctuated by (very) occasional
“It is the infamous jinx with the Sheffield clubs. Over the years no matter how good we are playing both these clubs usually
get the wins. Typical as today. Need to push on everything not over as yet.”
“Sheff u deserved win, it’s gone move on.”
“Beaten us in every department. Such is life. 6th place still not out of touch..”
“Pretty even until the first goal then Sheff.Utd dominated.It pains me to say but they were organised and stronger all over the
“Run had to come to an end, worst performance for a while and just disappointing it comes against this lot.”
“No desire, no effort, nothing. Very poor.”
“Credit to them, they played well, high tempo, looked better on the ball & tactics were better. We were lucky it wasn’t a
mauling on that first half performance.”
“Today the game was lost from the dugout, one of the worst performances I’ve seen in a long old time.”
“We were wank today. Best team won. We don’t deserve to be anywhere near the playoffs on that performance”
“that was like watching your parents have intercourse “
“Well we completely bottled it today!!”
“The best side won today, we were beyond poor”
“Never turned up today, Sheffield Utd were up for it from minute 1 and fully deserved the win”
“Sheff United fans chanting ‘there’s only one Chris Morgan’ & making elbow gestures. Classy”
“Best side won. End of. No complaints we were poor”
“It was by no means the worst we’ve played this season. Not so much we were that bad, as they were able to stop us playing.
They were superior all over the pitch.”
“One up front at home??
we played like we were playing a big club… away. Poor very poor. not a single shot on goal.”
“It hurts more because of who it was but they deserved it, we were awful today.”
“But they wouldn’t have enjoyed it either, as their forums state categorically that they’re not bothered about us. At all.”
“Men vs boys. Only one team turned up today. We should never under any circumstances not have a shot on target all game.”
“they were crap never heard a word till they scored. Shit fans. first time they’ve ever filled away end lol”
“We ceratinly picked the most possible day not to turn up”
“we underestimated your guys expertise in this league but then again you have been in it that long
we were **** poor and on radio der dar it says it were grunts best performance of the season , congrats youve won your cup
final and had a day in the fresh air out of the smog and seen trees and that , well done”
“They did a good job on us and every ball they put into our box, most of which were quality, caused problems. “
“Well my first league since blunts away due to missus on maternity pay and being skint. amazingly disappointed saw there line up and thought we would win but we were shocking. WIth not going to any of last 9 can not comment on performances. But today was terrible no shape, could not handle constant long ball. Negative tactics and passes. To be fair we played better in 0-1 away win. We have a spell betwen 5 – 15 mins where we dominated ball but that was it”
“We have a team building in progress. We are not yet the finished article and this shows in some of the games, particularly today. If we got in the playoffs and got promotion, do you think this team could survive the Championship . I do not think so and we would be back to the moaning and groaning . I think same could be said of the Blunts too. So the excitement is good but I would think another year building a really good team and then go for it. There will be some players going out and some coming in, could be an interesting close season”
“Fair play to at least one of the Blunts team today
Their young lad down the west stand side with the plain flag had probably the most effective game I’ve seen by an opposition player this season.
Other than that they just worked harder than us and took advantage of an inexperienced keeper and lack of Williams/O’Sullivan type link player.”
“Id say they probably had the slight advantage of their players actually turning up and their manager actually having a clue.”
“I’ll make this clear, we were outplayed, out fought, out thought by Sheffield Utd.
We didn’t have a shot on target, our tactics were terrible.
It was like watching us under Danny Wilson.
Utd wanted it, and fought for it.
Well done lads.
In fact you should have had 3 or 4 more with our comedy defending and goal line clearances to keep you out.
Good support, and in my 40 years of watching at Oakwell I think that’s the most fans I’ve ever seen from you lot.
Reminded me of the Owls support, so good effort.
Still a way to go in this league and I think your main threat will be Chessie, unless we beat ’em next Saturday, then it’ll be us again!
May still see you at Wembley, but enjoy today while it lasts”
“We played absolutely shocking! That was a completely different side out there than what played against Bristol and Preston, just what the hell happened? Also; the sky sports score centre app seemed adamant we were playing 4-4-2 but I swear it wasn’t… Looked more 4-5-1, if so, WHY?
One up front at home in a derby? Sorry Lee, you’ve been tremendous so far but you got it tactically wrong today! I think I can see what he was trying to do, he was trying to control the game by packing midfield but it didn’t work at all and backfired massively, much worse than he probably anticipated.
And last but not least, the officials… We were shocking, yes, I’ll give you that, but to not even card a Sheff Utd player when he has more or less deliberately pushed a Barnsley player in the face? There were too many completely stupid decisions (or lack of decisions in some areas) to mention here but that one stands out as it effectively lead to the first goal.
Fair play to Sheff Utd, we got it tactically wrong, they capitalized on that and it could have honestly been an embarrassing scoreline of 3 to 4 nil today. Lee’s shown his first error as a manager today for me.”
“No complaints, that was one of our worst performances of the season and we deserved everything we got. Very disappointed.”
“Strikers on the wing, completely outclassed and no game plan. The fact we’ve lost isn’t what hurts, it’s the manner in which we lost. Absolute garbage today.”
“The way they celebrated it obviously meant a fair bit.
The best team won today admittedly. An away win each so honours even , now calm the fk down.”
“So just to be clear , the author (of this blog) is illiterate who needs to troll message boards and copy comments because he’s incapable
of forming a sentence and thinking for him self .
We get loads of requests on here to participate in giving our view on a forthcoming fixture , you notice I added the word
REQUEST , it works very well and everyone is happy .
Good manners cost nothing but clearly that’s too much for you Fritzal’s to spend.
Enjoy your deserved victory and see you next season , your manners are in keeping with your play off record .
To be fair your fans seem to find an opposition player almost losing his life after receiving an elbow by one of your players amusing so I’m hardly likely to feel like some circus freak because you blunts find my rant amusing .
I’m fully aware what a blog is and yes once a piece is sent into cyberspace it no longer belongs to the author , thanks for reminding me anyway .
My comments have clearly struck a nerve , you need to move away from the fly on the dog turd type blog and actually create something using your own initiative , blood sucking leeches were never popular .
I ain’t really bothered that a couple of geeky blunt cybersnakes drinking cans of monster who can only copy and paste find me none too clever .
I don’t really know how you get your material for much of the season , 90% of this league couldn’t give a flying feck about you , another season down here and you’ll have to close the site down fellas , may as well do it now there’s nowt for you lads in North London historically .”
