“sheff on the back of a defeat will be looking for a strong showing “
“Sheff Utd is a massive game and I think it’s perfect to play our big players such as Jones and Anderson. “
“Devante is gonna have a field day by the looks of the highlights (of United against Colchester)”
“**** they could be back for Phil Parkinson before Christmas”
“ What a difference a few games makes sheff utd now on the ropes there for the taking we need to take the game to them early and with purpose their confidence will be shot. Attacking formation plz parky and go for it
“Back to back defeats at home could make Sunday interesting. Do we think ‘beware the injured animal’ or actually they’re not all that great kick them when they’re down! Hopefully the latter is what pans out!”
“ We have to take the game to them. They’ll be nervous, as will the fans. An intense first 10mins attacking their week areas, but being aware of a counter attack, is what I would like to see.”
“I really wouldn’t read too much into their last 2 results. There’s been a strange trend so far this season across England which has seen far more away wins than usual. In fact significantly more away wins than home ones (I don’t have the actual stats)
Both sheff Us last 2 games were at home. It seems our home ‘advantage’ may be a significant weakness of ours (sound familiar?) as it has been for many others this season. “
“I cant wait to get stuck into the blunts on Sunday now. We as a crowd need to get on their backs straight from the kick off.”
“I think they have fallen into the trap of signing players that are intimidated by big crowds. School boy error.”
“The Blades supporters views on their side is that they can play some good football at times, but lack a hard edge. This said, I expect them to be up for it in Sunday after losing two at home. Not a pacy team either according to their supporters and vulnerable to being ran at from midfield and being pressurised.
Looks like a few goals in this game, so probably 0-0! “
“Home support will need to be at it’s best – failure will mean SU could sound like the home support. I can see both sets of supporters being vocal, owing to the Sky cameras, yet the football on the field, will dictate proceedings – Lets hope PP gets this SPOT ON.”
“Just ” slightly” got the upper hand have the Blunts
16 wins to City with 15 draws and 25 wins to the Blades
Total in all comps : 17 wins to City 17 draws and 28 wins to the Blades
Saying that, they where playing sheite when we last beat them 2-0 at home
I’m going for a 2-2 draw”
“Sheffield Utd has a poor defence at the moment, but can cope with long balls all day apparently. They will probably set up 442. From a bit of scouting on their forum I’ve learnt a few things. They have said they signed poor quality players in the transfer window and done it all on the cheap, they needed more quality*…ahem. They have no pace in the squad. The midfield is a shambles, with no penetration or creativity. Their strikers can’t finish. Baxter is now ****e. Billy sharp can’t finish. The entirety of the staff at the club are a shambles (Poor tea lady). So they don’t sound too pleased.”
“By the looks of it there fans are nearly in meltdown mode everyone is s###e in the team .
manager don’t know what he’s doing and they still have plenty of tickets left for Sunday .”
“Their forum almost makes our resident doom merchants look sensible. Almost!!!”
“Win and we are flying with 11 points from 5 games – championship winning form. The team more or less picks itself, so this down to how Parkinson sets up to play.
By no means a must win, but it could go a long way to giving us the confidence to kick on.”
“Watching Sheff Utd’s highlights against Colchester, one thing stood out and that is how similar Colchester’s first two goals were to Devante’s strike against Oldham and his effort against the post at Fleetwood, i.e. a bit of movement from the front man and a through ball round the back of the defenders. Cole’s movement could really punish defending like that.”
“Don’t think they will be able to handle us tbh it’s about tine we beat them and beat them well”
“Really looking forward to sunday against sheffield, imo its the biggest game of the season for us as it will be the biggest attendance (Home & Away) and atmosphere, and should be a thriller based on sheffields recent slump and our up and down form but now unbeaten in 4 games and look to be playing better.”
“I think it will be scrappy. Adkins will probably play 442, if we match them it will be a scrappy, tense game. Neither side want to lose this. As said, I’d like to see us go for the kill, their defence is shipping goals like ours was. Devante could run riot if knott is on form and we can boss midfield.
Also, can the moron who signed up to the blunts forum under the name BigBantam, stop posting and making us look like a pack of tits. Why you want to go on a forum and shout about our season ticket sales to a team who consistently have 18000 is beyond me, and how you can shout about their ‘poor’ away ticket sales is stupid as well, since we have been debating what has happened to our away support. Stop hitting yourself. Just stop it. “
“Sheffield have only sold 1350 at close of sales today.”
“Gotta admit surprised at those sales and disappointed.”
“Can not say I am surprised with it being on TV. Hopefully the TV money should cover the missing 1000 or so”
