Derby 1-1 Blades

“Sheffield United looked like a good side. Based on today, I’d say they’re still a good bet to finish in the top six and I’m not really sure why or how their form has dropped off and they’ve lost to some of the teams they have. For us, we looked tired. That’s not an excuse, there’s no reason why we should have been any more tired than Sheffield United. Their style is a game we could have thrived under and not many teams come to PP and play the way they did, but for whatever reason it just didn’t work today. In wider context, it’s a very good point. We could easily have lost that. They scored from probably their only clear chance of the game but they always looked capable of creating something every time they came forward”

“Sheffield United were fantastic at times, best side I’ve watched home and away this season”

“Fair play to Sheffield United, come to a tough place, should’ve got the win and the fans were in full voice throughout the 90 minutes.”

“Sheff Utd did better than I expected. They either played out of their skins or they have had some real bad results lately.”

“Credit where it’s due. Sheffield United are a good teambeen the better team in both games against us this season. Like how they use the 3-5-2 to attack rather than sit back” “Didn’t deserve a point at all, they were a lot better than us all over the pitch.” “Sometimes certain teams just have the measure of you and the Blades are one of those teams against us right now. So, all things being considered I don’t think that’s a bad point. We weren’t good and to my mind they looked the better team.”

“Sheff Utd plays well I thought; pinned us back with power and strength and I’ve not seen our centre halves get less success in the air all season, although with the amount of set pieces they had I thought they coped well.”

“Sheff Utd looked good today tbf, had a lot more energy. Deserved to lose so a point is good”

“They were the better side. Impressed with them”

“Sheff U are a good side and we’ve managed two lucky points against them”

“Another great point gained against a good side in this division”

“they were a very good side and this will probably be looked back as a point won. We’ve come away with something after being outplayed completely”

“Deserved to lose, so deffo take a point.” 

“Can’t really grumble with a point against a play-off contender.”

“Another point on the board against a decent enough team.”

“A point is not bad after Sheff U’s pressure and workrate.”

“Can’t believe how much that donkey Leon Clarke has improved this season. Kudos to United for coming for the 3 points.”

“Yet another performance whereby from the very first minute, we played on the back foot and looked to play on the counter.
Are we simply not good enough to dictate the tempo against sides in this league? Do we really think we can continue to pick up results playing in this manner?
We didn’t deserve anything from this game in truth. Sheff Utd tried to win the game and we simply were trying to stop them from doing that.”

“Exhausting to watch one team play today and us be so random. Was so sad about it I wanted to cry. Seriously.” 

“both sides looked really knackered towards the end.”

“Thought the ref made a massive howler in our favour today. Fair result, game petered out after they equalised. ”

“Definite penalty. handball and a foul.”
