“Think Sheff Utd will be a much tougher test than Bolton”

“This is going to show if we can compete – another win and I could be the start of something”

“A difficult game for the Rams , been impressed with Sheff Utd since Wilder came in , my head says a narrow loss , my heart says a battling draw”

“We’ll do well to avoid defeat in this one. Sheff Utd’s home record is very impressive.”

“Tight match, few chances.” 

“sorry guys but a full house will lift Sheffield to great heights in a close but open game. Can’t see us doing better until GR sorts midfield and melds a better balance. So hope I’m wrong.”

 “Missed Sheff U away. Should be a goodun
Lawrence for Russell if he is not fit. Can see another win here!”
“Be one of the best away days of the year if you like your booze. (We all do). 
Sheffield tap
Rutland arms 
sentinel brewing company 
  stagger in to the away end. 
3 points. 
Train home”

“Can we make it 4 on the bounce Do we bounce? Will Wendies let us use the bounce? Do the blunts have the steel?”
“we play with growing strength all over the park and are beginning to look like a team to be feared.”

“5 v 5 in MF then but Nuge on his jack against 3 up top. We will again bring our full backs 20 yards in from the touchline and their wide players will exploit the space, that I told GR not to leave, and get a string of crosses. Crosses we should be stopping……….. but, hey ho, who ever listens to me?”

“I liked Derby before cos Nigel Cloughs dad was in charge and I couldn’t forget that, even though I was brought up at The City Ground. I hated Derby for two games a season whenever we played you but secretly wanted you to do well.
I then loved Burton for 10 years. Despite the tough decision to stop going to Burton I then loved Derby with my whole heart while NC was in charge. I’m now back to liking Derby again (despite some of the forum member reactions to me) but won’t go out of my way to watch them play anymore. I now love Burton with my whole heart and would prefer not to have to change again. Hope that clears up any doubt. I hope you smash Sheffield United all over the place”
