“They deserved that point.
We looked slow throughout the game.
Big up to Ramsdale who did a fine job, we could have been a goal down in 30 seconds.
Nothing much all game from King and Wilson.
Have we suddenly become a long ball team?
Pretty disappointed to be honest. “
“We struggle against teams who sit deep…we dont have any creative midfielders…..although tbf no one has outside the top 6…..we haven’t become a ‘long ball team’ just a counter attacking one. “
“Sheffield U looked like they had 15 players on the pitch second half. We looked knaccered. Why? It’s the first game of the season!”
“We’re going down, any optimism for new season gone in one game. Continuation from end of last season. Absolutely turgid and dog performance. Attack non existant, Rico & Mepham awful. No one could keep the ball or play a 1 yard pass. Playing 3 CB at home to Sheff Utd, got what we deserved, they deserved a point.”
“We set up like we were playing Man City and not Sheff U, very poor from Eddie today and had us at disadvantage from the get go. “
“Great advert for championship football. Shite v shite if you ask me.”
“They definitely deserved at least a point. They worked hard , closed us down, made it difficult to get the ball to our forwards. We looked unimaginative and even disinterested at some points. We looked weak on the left. Not sure what game Eddie was watching but we needed changes after we’d scored. However, Sheff utd played at their best to get a point against a very poor Bournemouth team. We will improve whereas they will struggle playing every team like that”
“They looked more up for it to me”
“Sheffield Utd used their subs wisely. We Didn’t.”
“Just a completely flat day. Fair play to them, hardworking, well drilled and fully deserved a point.”
“Shocking performance they deserved their draw”
“actually felt quite comfortable second half, they looked fairly limited, can’t remember them creating a chance…until that free kick and the keystone cops equaliser.Poor match, two poor, limited sides.”
“as poor as we were they created nothing and were fortunate with their goal. Still, we should have been more clinical and composed with our breakaways.”
“they didn’t look a threat despite us being horrendous, so it’s very much 2 points dropped. If the players bothered to turn up would’ve been a comfortable win.”
“They were there for the taking and we failed to finish them off. Two poor sides.”
“Mepham got caught out in the first 10 secs of the game with that long ball and throughout the course of the game he looks scared with the ball at his feet and beaten for pace by McGoldrick, not really an Eddie player, looks a liability.”
“Not really even the score this game could very much have been a 0-1 banana skin .. United far more up for it then us … it’s the first game of the season !FFS boys look like your up for it”
“Sheff U look very well organised/drilled.”
“Full credit to Sheff Utd for the way they played. They could of & maybe should have got all 3pts”
“Sheff Utd deserved the equaliser at the end.”
“Draw probably the fair result but Sheff Utd could have nicked it.”
“Draw a fair result. Sheff hung in and stayed in the game, deserved something. Wind spoiled the game.”
“I did say to the people sat next to me when Billy Sharp came on that he was a good striker. If they had to equalise then happy for Billy to score (if you know his history).
They deserved a point (unfortunately).”
“I was about to say ‘I remember Bill Sharp tearing us apart for Scunthorpe about 12 years ago, how times have changed’. Maybe not changed that much afterall”.
“Billy Sharp, a name that belongs to a football player in a comic, seems to have been around forever!”
“No onfield leadership. SheffU can be much happier.”
“Carried on from last season, outworked by the opposition, no movement off the ball, no chances created.”
“Ffs full ass defensive squad out there basically 7 defenders on the pitch and still can’t get a clean sheet. Against a promoted side at that!”
“Sheff were happy for us to have the ball and prevented any forward ball. -moved the ball with zero intensity.”
“didn’t deserve even a draw. Villa, and I hate to say it, will tear us apart if we have another showing like that. Sheffield United are now a team that I hate. The fans, players and the place.”
