“Another tough game on the road for us. We are unbeaten in a while so we fancy our chances of a positive result. Reckon 1000 plus make the trip to Yorkshire. “
“13 away games unbeaten, think it will come to an end this weekend, maybe an outside chance we can scrape a draw and keep the run going. Still undecided on going to this one, been to Sheff Utd so many times but rarely enjoy it, mainly due to the result”
“Going to be a tough away day to protect our 14 match unbeaten away record as The Blades will be fresh after not playing last week and unless our injury crisis eases we will be well understrength again . Just to confirm we have Rose.Hope.Nardiello,Etuhu,Lowe and O’Brien all out last weekend and they are all first team regulars bar O’Brien .
Sheffield are most peoples faves for promotion and not without good reason as they have a proper strong squad and they normally stuff us so history will have to change .”
“That was a great crowd(at home to United in 2012) and a great atmosphere, they were top we were 8th or 9th and was an entertaining game where their killer touch in front of the goal told in the end,. It was still poor that they outnumbered us in my book (by about 250 as I recall), should be getting 3500 home fans at least for such a game, Then again Fenton and co were running the club and they had limited ideas when it came to attracting fans and the locals, The game a year later was a far cry from this, us bottom, blades about 6th, barely 3000 at the game and a very routine but dour 2-0 away win. Been to Bramall Lane once in 2006 league cup game when we were unlucky to lose. Would love 1000+ Shakers there and I will be one of them but can’t see beyond a routine home win. If my predictions are as poor as last Saturday then I am laughing. This will be a big test for Lainton and the defence after they were showered with praise following last Saturday’s win. Sheff Utd are a different kettle of fish in my book.
Any Blades fans remember the league cup game in 1995 at gigg lane? I remember it well, what a game.
PS any ideas as to where Sean Bean drinks in Sheffield on match day?”
“Last time i went i left at 4 nil down after 70 mins so it’s redemption time – Sheff Utd 0 Bury 3
Scorers – Clarke (L), Mayor and 30 yard screamer from Sedgwick, who would have come on to shore things up at 2-0 (well 1-0 actually!).
With chants of “Wednesday Rejects, Wednesday Rejects, Hello, Hello…” ringing out around the Lane by a 1000 Shakers…with 19000 Yorkshireman walking sadly out of the ground before the final whistle.”
“I’m no statto, but I don’t think we’ve won at bramhall lane in 30 attempts. Would take 0-0 now.”
“1925 was the last time we won there. The season after that we beat them 7-4 at Gigg.”
“Didn’t we win a League Cup game there once? I remember loads of Wednesday fans clapping the supporter’s coach on the way home? Maybe we drew and went through on aggregate or something??”
“We went there and lost 2-1 (if memory serves correctly it was the same night Manchester United lost 3-0 to York at Old Trafford), then beat them 4-2 in the return leg to go through. Back in 1995 when they still hadn’t built the John Street stand, and the resulting wind made Bramall Lane a horrid cold place to go!”
“Goalless draw at a frustrated Bramall Lane with a 1000 passionate Shakers happy to take a point home from the future Champions”
“I’ve got quite a big bet (by my standards) on Sheff U winning the league!”
