“why couldn’t it have been at home”
“A fantastic draw
“will we need a new third kit or wear blue & stripes like their beloved neighbours”
“great draw for us”
“It’s a great draw, and their fan numbers will really help our bank balance along “
“A chance for revenge – at long last!”
“Sheffield United have an average attendance of over 18,000. 17,000 saw us play them at the Lane in 1959”
“How can you be disappointed with that draw?”
“Truth be told, I wanted a home game against some small team that’s got fixture congestion – that said, I’m over the moon with the fact that we’ve got a chance to teach another league 1 team how to play football. I’m usually rather negative about how well we will do in games, but right now I feel like we could well give them a go!”
“Only a Worcester City supporter could complain about being drawn away at Sheffield United!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“Irrespective of the result that is a big financial payday for the club.
How many of us were at the game against them in January 1959? I was one of the 17,042 that day.
I reckon it’ll be a great day out. Spare a thought for the City management team who have twelve days in which to organise tickets and travel.”
“i think we can win this & bonus is financial. come on you blues”
“It’s a great draw on so many levels but the thought of going up the M1 one for me, after this last weekends rewarding Gateshead jaunt, where I went around visiting Wetherspoons around Sheffield and South Yorkshire on the way up and did a few more on the way back along with a few in West Yorkshire puts me off. M1 is full of road works and speed restrictions and A1M and M18 were not that clever either, let alone the car park that is the M25. Being selfish from a travel perspective only, I was hoping that if we were to get another away draw it might have been Gillingham, Millwall or Charlton. I’m not going to miss the game though, so will probably go to Worcester and get the coach for this one as I cannot face the M1 again so soon. C’mon City!”
“I was a Sheffield United supporter from birth. There was no choice. Me dad, granddads, brothers, cousins, nephews and nieces are all blades. My brothers were both on the phone straight away asking which end I was going to be in. Needless to say, for the first time in my life I’ll be in the Bramall Lane End with the rest of Carl and Mat’s Barmy Army. Both brothers said that Worcester would beat United – but then they’re blades and are always pessimistic.
Although they’re not Coventry City 2014, United aren’t exactly setting League One alight, they lost on Saturday to lowly Millwall, and whilst they’re trying to play free flowing football under Nigel Adkins, they’re vulnerable to teams that defend well and hit them on the break. I’m only sorry that Nathan Vaughan and Sean Geddes are going to miss the game, because both of them are more than capable of competing at this level, and both would have revelled in the atmosphere that the Lane always generates.
we can get another good following there on the day/night, with the stand over the top of the away supporters end you can get a really good sound from 2 or 3 thousand fans. I never ever thought I’d say this. I can’t believe I’m actually saying it, but Come On You Blue and White Wizards!”
“Getting them at home would have been the icing on the cake and increased the chances of a live televised game, but you have to be happy with that. Will take that. Another great day out ahead!”
“Sheffield United’s average home attendance this season is 19,870,they are the best supported side in the bottom 2 divisions and better supported than 18 of the Championship teams and Bournemouth of the Premier league.
This is the best payday fixture with of course the chance of a win.”
“going to be a great experience, and hopefully a memorable win!! Come on city!!”
“cancel everything Sheffield invasion coming up”
“gonna have to win the cup the hard way this year. #letsgetcarriedaway “
“Don’t get much bigger than that at this stage! C’mon City.”
“ Wow! What an amazing draw yet again! I’m pretty sure we will take 4000 plus. Just hope we are financially compensated for all the sufc season ticked holders that will get in free (which is a great idea for them).”
“By the looks of things, The Blades have three players in their team on loan, two have featured frequently in their first team, lets hope their parent clubs don’t let them play!
I really don’t think it’s fully sunk in for me yet – we’re going to play a team that was once arguably one of the best teams in England, who were in the prem not that long ago, which is now managed by someone as well thought of in football as Nigel Adkins. Blimey. “
“United aren’t going through the best of patches recently and could easily underestimate/not give due respect…you never know! It’s that lad Che Adams who we’ve got to keep an eye on.”
“Facebook page suggests 1,500 sold as at last noght”
“I thought that the popular tweet from the Owls fan was very funny.
Sheffield United drawn at home to Worcester City if you’ve never heard of them they are a football club in Sheffield #FACup”
