“Well the next three games will make or break the season, first up Sheffield United with happy Chris in charge, until last Saturday they were on a run of not losing or conceeding that all changed hanks to Andy Weimann, with their defeat to Brizzle they dropoped to third so pressure has ramped up on them to get back into the automatic positions, with Leeds away at Birmingham which is also not a gimme so not just a big game for us but a huge match for the Blades as well, they have also lost the Billy Sharp record of when he scores they never lose as well.
To be fair to the Blades, Wilder has an interesting playing style with two of the three centre backs playing as extra widemen, obviously worked a treat this season given their position, rate Chris Basham excellent player, Sharp is no mug also have Hogan on loan from Villa and McGoldrick who has scored against us on a regular basis.
We vlost at the Lane 3-2 as we were just about to come to the end of our early season slump scoring our first goals away from Deepdale this season, we will have to perform way better than we did last week at teh Mad Stad but returning players may enhance the squad, looking forward to the Blades goal keeper Henderson having a mare he is a twat.
Looking forward to this 5000 plus support from Sheffield it will be loud on Saturday and with Leeds at Home on Tuesday as I said a pivotal week.”
“We know a few things about Sheff U.
1. they all work and press hard
2. they play an usual system with overlapping CB’s
3. they have experienced strikers who can find space in tight boxes and score.
so for me this means (subject to injuries obviously)
1. We cant afford to play anyone who doesnt work equally as hard – so DJ & Nmecha are out
2. Robbo wont be fit enough to keep tracking back and Nmecha wont be switched on enough
3. Storey & Davies could have a hard time tracking Sharp etc and so no time to cover for Earl or Fisher..”
“What players do we have left? any news on Pearson?
Can’t say i’m confident, Robinson doesn’t look ready to be starting games and our system is nowhere near as effective without the mobility of Barky, Browne & Potts, all goal threats too. “
“Brandon Barker likely to be out for the season. Pearson, Potts, Browne all to be assessed ahead of Sheffield United game. ”
“Sounds like there is a decent chance Browne and Potts will be fit enough to play, its getting to the point where AN may have to risk playing them or we could lose touch with the PO’s.”
“I am hopeful that Browne will be ready and that after another week Robinson will have sharpened up some more.”
“Not confident against Sheff Utd’s midfield if we don’t have Pearson”
“In short, it will be a bloody miracle if we beat Sheff Utd.”
“Can’t be too scared of them though, their actual squad isnt great relative to their performances, and we’ve definitely got decent players who can hurt them.”
“I wouldn’t rule out use beating Sheffield United and Leeds”
“I get annoyed how clubs show very little regard for the FFP rules by splashing the cash that they don’t really have whilst other clubs like ourselves try to do it the correct way. I hope that Sheffield Wednesday, Derby Couny and Aston Villa if they start next season in the Championship also start on minus 12 points.”
