Fleetwood 2-2 Blades


“two points dropped but I suppose a point towards safety.
Disgusting behaviour from the Sheffield United fan hitting our goal keeper with a coin. The referee said it was his own fault !!! Just shows how shit the ref was. Apparently the ref was from Yorkshire too.”

“Appalling behaviour from their fans”

“An intriguing encounter at times, dull at others but thought we gave away 2pts today. Great goal from Ash Hunter to equalise the unfortunate og 2 mins earlier, but having taken the lead we should have seen the game out. Thought the ref was dying to give the pen at some point and we gave him the opportunity 3 mins into added time, although i thought Bell got a touch on the ball before the guy went down. Sheffield Utd were there for the taking today and that late late pen made it feel like a defeat”

“Robbed today, soft pen, ref was shite and basically gave the Yorkshire puddings a point when we should have had all 3”

“A valuable point against a strong side which could have been 3 points if we hadn’t shot ourselves in the foot in a mad last 10 minutes helped by yet another inept referee. Two good goals and a battling performance from a threadbare squad”

“Well what a game all in all and what a perfect week it so nearly was . Don ‘ t always agree with moaning and groaning about the ref . but today I thought he was very poor.”

“Firstly from an entertainment point of view what a good game of football!
Secondly a strong performance from Fleetwood against awkward opponents. Rather sensed that in the last few minutes and down to 10 men that the efforts of the last week rather caught up with the team. Shame the ref was suckered into the late penalty award, there seems to be a culture these days that if contact is made with the player after the ball then it’s somehow ‘legitimate’ to go down and claim a penalty. Thought the ref was ok otherwise, albeit it all threatened to get a bit out of hand at the end. “

“We’d have all taken the draw before kick-off but left with a taste of defeat, having seen the penalty although I don’t agree with the decision I have seen similar given, Bell shouldn’t have even let him get into that area, Haughton did what he does best again; nothing. As for the rest of the game, great header by Hunter and we did well to respond to going 1-0 down. Ryan proved to be the catalyst again and without him this season we’d already be down. “
