“Massive game this is, we need to win. Don’t really care how, just need to win”
“Think it will be a cracker and we will come out on top.”
“This is a massive game for us, win this and I think we’ll get automatic promotion. I always love beating Sheffield United to be honest (much prefer Wednesday) especially if we have a pretty full strength then I think we should win, however our home form has been terrible and we’ll need to find a way to break them down. If they play gung-ho against us, I think we’ll beat them, bit like the Leeds game.”
“no disrespect to these but come on this should be targeted as a win. i cant think of one of their players who would get into our team. its time for our players and coaching staff to give us a performance that stands out”
“none of their players would get in our best 11. They are punching miles above their weight this season, I’ve never considered them a serious threat to the top 2. Fail to beat these on Saturday and Norwich and Leeds have the automatics in the bag.”
“we should have enough to beat these,with Murphy and Harper improving and Gayle and Phillips back,it will be the usual stupid short passing at the back and in midfield going astray making us own worst enemy that is our biggest problem,maybe at home we need to let the opposition have more of the ball and hit them on the break,rather than us having to attack them.”
“Tell you what, the users on the Sheffield United forum are overly confident aren’t they? Incredible stuff. One thinks they’ve got the best strikers in the League, that’ll be Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick, Gary Madine and Scott Hogan? Ermm no mate. Most think they’ll beat us easily on Saturday, I’m dumbfounded.”
“Billy Sharp is having a great season, he is my biggest concern.”
“The Blades fans are quite confident aren’t they?
Funny they weren’t so happy a week or so ago when they threw away a 3 goal lead in 9 minutes. Expect us to smash them on Saturday, horrible little club that doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near the premier league.”
“As Leeds, Sheffield United, Bristol City and Norwich (2nd half away and 1st half home) know when we play anything like we can no team in the league can live with us and as per the above, that includes the top teams as the results show. Out the top 6 we have only lost to Middlebrough (twice) so far but with how football works that was always going to happen with it being Pulis. The issue we have had is consistency, as everyone keeps pointing out we probably do have the best squad in the league but football dont always work like that, if it did Man United wouldnt of been halfway down the premier league a few weeks ago with the players they have. If we play to our best and Sheffield United play to their best we will beat them comfortably same as we would every other team in the league as past results show. That is not being arrogant and there is no saying that will happen, your not always at your best and different factors play a part, i think saturday will be a hard game and i wouldnt be surprised if it ends up a draw.”
“I like Chris Wilder and i think Sheffield United are a good team, however i dont like them as a club, never have, much prefer Sheffield Wednesday and i am not too sure why they are so cocky and sure about winning, they may want to recall the game at their place when after the first half hour they barely got a kick, we won at a canter despite it only being 2-1, we controlled the game relatively easy. “
“Just been on their forums and wow are they deluded! Someone said on there we are a top 10 Champ team and that’s it.
Can’t wait to stuff them on Saturday and then see what they say!”
“We have the better players so should win but it doesn’t always work out like that. No reason why we can’t put 4 or 5 past them, even Villa managed 3!”
“Any team that concedes three goals in 10 minutes to a Villa team without Grealish probably shouldnt get too cocky. “
“Sheff utd showed against the vile that they have a soft underbelly”
“Have you noticed that most of the other managers say that we should be top because we’ve got premier league players.
They’re sort of saying well we should lose but if we win its a great victory.
Gets on my nerves trying to be a win win for them etc”
“Anyone remember first home game of the season after relegation in 1986, when Shef Utd were the visitors for a night match. Only time I have ever seen away fans in such numbers in the BRE.”
