“Their First goal. Oh dear Dan, thought it looked bad from our end, but how has he scored that? “

“The Blades’ first goal is a real freakish one. I’ve watched it several times and still can’t work out how he actually managed to score it.”

“Pleased with a point, I definitely would have snapped the hand off anyone offering that before kick-off.”

“I’ll take that.
Hard earned and we had our chances.
Defended better second half.
Plenty of positives.
We played some great football at times.”

“Well done Blues, point gained I feel.”

“In reflection we go home with a point (which I hoped for before kick off) bit of a downer we were 2-0 up at one stage, but that being said, what with their dis-allowed goal and they hit the post / crossbar 3 times at least. Im happy with a point.”

“When we conceded those two goals at the end of the first-half, it certainly came as no surprise when the Blades came out with their tails up in the second-half. The second 45 were nowhere near as good and in the end we were certainly lucky to get away with a point.”

“Considering the distance travelled in that awful weather, a fantastic turnout & noise by the faithful to be proud of!”

“very hard earned draw with a big sprinkle of lucky dust.”

“2-2 FT. What a great game, for all the right and wrong reasons.
Disappointing with the 2 mistakes but they hit the post 3 times, so I feel quite lucky actually. Most would have taken a draw. Good point anyway”

“2-2 is actually a great result for us and we really rode our luck.”

“Would have bitten your hand off for that result before the game, just a shame after going 2-0 up and throwing it away with some awful set piece defending. Protected the lead late on but rightly so as they were all over us. White Struggled with JCR’s pace and skill at times but generally did okay “

“We looked brilliant in the first half…great stuff. Shame re the nature of the goals we let in, but as has been said, we’d have all taken that before”

“Thank god JCR seems a yard slower than when we had him!”

“witnessed two amazing goals and some quality support from the away blues faithful in a great stadium. Spoke to some Sheff utd fans before the game and said the lowest attendance of season was 19000.”

“An important point to remember, not a single team has kept a clean sheet at Sheffield United’s ground all season, and in the league they have scored 19 goals in 9 matches.”

“looked like a huge pitch and they used the width exceptionally well especially in the second half”

“Poor old Williams , not even on the bench to experience the atmosphere of 20,000 at a great ground”

“Funny game this – we went from playing some lovely stuff and causing real problems for Sheff Utd at the start, to hanging onto a point by the skin of our teeth at the end.”

“good to see that JCR’s crossing is still as bad as I remembered.”

“Fed up with hearing the same old cliches spouted from Brown & Coughlan like “would have taken a point at Sheff Utd before the game”. **** off how about coaching them how to win from being in front.
Not a bad result I suppose but like a few recent games we should have won.”

“was a great start and looked good going 2 up but lets be fair we all know they would get at least 1 back as we never keep 2 nil leads. In all fairness we were lucky to get a point in the end as they hit woodwork 3 times 2nd half”

“My first visit to Sheff Utd, locals very friendly and good to talk to. In the car on the way up we would have happily taken a draw, at 2-0 up gutted to go in 2-2 at half time, at the final whistle very happy with 2-2. First 35 minutes we were brilliant, and they were simply awful. From the minute they scored the first, it was pretty much one way traffic. Both our goals classy, both theirs awful defending. Second half we clung on for dear life, but at least we tried to get forward. As for us fans, 1060, sounded like 2060, brilliant noise and out sung 18000 Sheff Utd fans all game “

“Super day out despite the weather. Great football ground and atmosphere. The pitch was wide and flat, it ran true despite the rain and showed excellant drainage with no standing water at all and no slips for any player.
Stewards good, well organised.
We bossed the first 30 + minutes and they had no attempts on goal other than a poor long JCR shot. Lenny has his shooting mojo back and Jack was a pain, Wozza showed pace, Adam and Thommo played high line defending.
Goal – super goal!
Goal- young Jack “Messi” makes it two!
Still the Baldes offered little BUT we did do a few back passes, all the way back to Dan and then he kicks long and we kept giving possession and ground – little by little, slight changes in our game.
Two poor set piece goals and then it was half time.
What do we do at half time? what is said?
We hung on for next 50 minutes, we had 3 good chances 2nd half- Westy near post header -weak and wide when he didn’t even have to jump. Timlin break when he flopped over when touched which was NEVER going to be given as pen, and then the Atko (why not shoot?) to Wozza blaze over.
Fair result BUT worrying in the trend for scrapping draws from winning positions. “
