Blades 1-3 Bury
“15 unbeaten away and finally won at Sheff Utd after 90 years of waiting.
No-one would have backed us to go to Walsall and Sheff U in the space of a week and get 6 points.”
“I thought we played superbly today and the tactics employed worked a treat. Going 442 clearly caught them on the hop and they weren’t really expecting it. I thought Sheffield looked very average consider the difference in size of club and obviously their spending powers. Lots of hoofball and banging it forward to their slap head of a striker.
Very funny coming home on BBC Sheffield most Blades fans still have the big club mentality “how could we ship three against little old bury”……however what griped me Adkins never mentioning how well we passed the ball and retained possession when we did have it. Tough Titties as the old saying goes……made up for the three points today. “
“We stopped their game firstly then imposed ours. Interesting was listening to Adkins pre match interview expecting us just to park the bus and how they’d practiced breaking teams down, for me today was a complete performance by us.
Great day to be a Bury fan. “
“I thought we played more wayward passes than any game this season and still came away with a 3-1 win! Having said that, it was still a memorable win.
Adkins made some strange substitutions and seemed to take off their better performing players and slow his side down. They did play a fair few long balls during the first half which our central defenders lapped up.
They looked better than Walsall but not a patch on Fleetwood.”
“They were missing Baxter and the young lad Che Adams, will be a better side with those 2 back in the side. Saying that they should still have had enough.”
“ We played very cagily in the first half but I thought we were very good in the second. Clarke and Cameron barely gave Sammon and Billy Clarke a sniff. We didn’t play our best football but I was pleased with our resilience. Once they took Campbell-Ryce off they didn’t look as threatening.”
“One of the best all-round Bury performances of recent times.
The game turned on Pope’s introduction. Flitcroft created a tactical problem which unbalanced United. All the goals were well-taken.
The game didn’t merit eight bookings. The referee was wrong to book Soares for his early-game challenge and thus trapped himself into showing yellow cards when there was no need.
Great support as always from the travelling Shakers fans.”
“Big team loses to minnows and it is always due to either a poor performance or bad luck, never is it due to the minnows playing well!”
“Have a look on the twitterblades hashtag if you want a giggle at some sore losers “
“I’ve not seen an opposition team do as much play-acting since the likes of Mansfield. The ref bought it every time though. It was a great all round performance and stunning win. Riley’s strike was an exocet. “
“Thought we was v disciplined and didn’t look in trouble first half without posing s threat ourselves. There main man was the kid on the wing Campbell -rice. When we opened up second half I thought they might dominate which wasn’t the case. We grew in confidence going forward and even their equaliser we kept going and never dropped our heads. Rileys goal was a bullet and clarkes finish sublime. We weren’t lucky we deserved the win.”
“ Funny how a result changes views – most people round me were moaning at half time.
But what a 2nd half and 2 of the best goals you’re ever likely to see and the celebrations were just as good!”
“We kicked them off the park according to their forum lol”
“Anyone else completely fed up with refs who think every time anyone falls over its a foul, that every foul is automatically a yellow card, and that if a player falls over and squeals it’s a red! The ref today consistently broke up play for no reason. He was desperate to be the centre of attention.
It wasn’t a dirty game today but he seemed to book half the players.
The only good thing about him was he was rubbish for both sides. “
“i thought they were far better than us first half.
I know stats dont tell the full story…but they tell part of a story – imo anyway.
14 corners to 1 for starters…it’s a funny old game as they say! “
