“If Norwich and Sheff Utd are the best this division has to offer then we’ve nothing to worry about next season. It’s all about momentum. Although this season isn’t over yet”

“I’m fairly confident that we will be playing them again next season in the Championship. They were ok but no where near in Norwich class. Although we lost we did create at least 5 decent chances which was more than Sheff U. did. Both number 6s were the best players on the field ie Basham and Davies imo”

Sheffield Utd weren’t anything special today”

“They were nothing special….but bloody hell we were shite again.”

“SU are nothing special and on another today we possibly could have had 3 or 4 but never looked like we’d score in 180 minutes”

“SU got very lucky today. “

“Thought we played well and should have scored but missed some guilt edge chances, Sheffield Utd didn’t seem that special to me just a very solid and hard working team who I felt we got at them at times.
Did Rudd have a save to make? Just the one from Billy Sharp, apart from that I thought we looked good. “

“Seani stood no chance against their centre halves and it can’t have been a surprise that Sheff Utd were going to be horrible and physical. “

“didn’t deserve to loose against a decent Sheffield united team who just had more experience than us”

“We weren’t bad by any stretch and worth considering that this Sheff Utd has every chance of going straight up. We were undone by one defensive lapse and a couple of decisions from the referee going our way early doors and it might have been a different story.”

“Thought we played very well today, just came up against a rock solid defence and outstanding goalkeeper. “

“Sheff Utd have an outstanding defensive record and we don’t seem to have much star quality to unlock teams at home.”

“Held at arms length by an experienced and well drilled outfit. Didn’t do enough to hurt Sheff U or move their defence around”

“Sheffield united were pressing us in our own half so when we did try to play it out from the back we got caught out a few times giving the ball away in our own half”

Sheff were the better side but there wasn’t much in it, it could have gone either way if we had taken our chances.”

“Wilder is a top manager.”

“If Sheffield united got the ball and immediately passed backwards all the time they’d be 10th just like us”

“Played alright in the first half, poor goal to give away. Second half was just shite, would have been undeserved if we got something from today.”

“Ref was the 12th man where Sheff Utd was concerned, even blocked a couple of north ends through balls, love that. “

“Frustrating day today, had a couple of decent chances which we really should have taken
The ref was awful today, booked one of our players for not taking a free kick from the specific blade of grass he wanted it to be taken from, from the far end it looked like we should have had at least 1 penalty at 0-0 but we really should have taken at least 1 of the chances we created and got a 1-1 draw out of it today
chatted to a few Sheff Utd fans on the way back to the car, seemed a decent bunch, will see if we can do them a favour on Tuesday night against Leeds”

“Shocking referee today. Must be scared of Chris Wilder, shithouse”

“Can’t believe sheff united fans were allowed in the home end… sort it out Preston”

“how do you justify having at least 40 Sheffield United fans singing and celebrating in the Sir Tom Finney stand today. Disgraceful Preston”

“Fair play to sheffield, but how have 15/20 of their fans been allowed into the directors stand on the Finney, and not only that, they were left to antagonise home fans ¿ stewards sat back and weren’t even assed?? If we did that at Bramall Lane we would’ve been battered”

“I sit next to the executive area in the STFS – there were about 30 Blades fans in there.They were boisterous for sure but just singing and chanting. They weren’t in our face when they scored and never threatening. Tbh some PNE were giving them grief. Mixed aged group just enjoying their day out. “

“Sheffield United fans obviously got the tickets in the Hospitality area because they had sold out the away end.
The problem was they were mostly drunk and foul mouthed”

“To be fair to Sheff Utd fans in front of us they didn’t celebrate goal except small boy & its pne’s fault they oversold executive area. Not sure Leeds fans will be as quiet”
