Blades 3-2 Crewe
“No other word to describe me now than gutted”
“Feel like I’m in the movie Groundhog Day.
Coventry, Gillingham, Doncaster, Swindon, Southend, Blackpool, Sheff Utd. All games where we had winning or drawing positions late in the game, but lost 6 of them and drew the other. The amount of points we have thrown away is staggering. We are fucking abysmal. Words can’t describe how shit we are. That first half was a disgrace to football. 2nd half we showed more life and got back into the game, but still threw it away because we have clueless morons on the sidelines and a bunch of spineless, gutless cowards on it. Sad thing is, that finish was neither surprising nor disappointing. Seen it too many times to be disappointed or angry now.
This group is awful, staggeringly bad, they keep finding new and interesting ways to lose games. League Two next season is going to be a riot.”
“There was a real contrast between the first and second-half performances from the Alex. In the first they we were slow and ponderous in our build-up and indecisive at the back, but after the restart – and in a different system – Crewe were vastly improved with clever and quicker play, and a more determined attitude.In many ways we deserved something from the game, but the frailties were still there at the back and United produced the quality they needed to regain the edge.The result will naturally go down as another bad statistic, and rightfully so. But the performances of the likes of Charlie Kirk and Callum Ainley in the second-half, plus the overall better play which led to the team being applauded off by the away fans, are positives.They look certain to be too late to help salvage this season, but going forward it showed there are reasons for optimism.”
“Bottom of the league, 6 wins, 1 win in 18. No question of Davis keeping his job. It’s fucking insane.
Bright side: that Garratt save in the first 5 minutes. “
“tried hard today but not good enough, you can’t operate on the cheap at League 1 but we think we can, not enough spent on the first team as always”
“the gift that keeps giving. From the peaks to the depths in an instant. So predictable.” “In fairness that was the first time this season (that I’ve seen) where we were the better side second half. Gutted”
“Not seen Crewe play as well as they did in that second 45 for some time. Sadly, seen them play like they did in the first all too often “
“Our 2nd half performance didn’t mean we deserved a point because,the truth is, we were lucky it wasn’t 5-0 at the break !”
“A much improved 2nd half, but we still conceded two awful goals and lost in familiar fashion. And the 1st half was abysmal.”
“Nice day in Sheffield, pity about result, 1st half rubbish (again), 2nd half rally (again) another defeat”
“Nugent was given a hard time by Adams”
“What a day, great fighting second half, unlucky again, fans were immense”
“Sheffield United have some of the worst fans I’ve seen in L1, 18k and only made noise when they scored left early despite winning “
