“The Chelsea game + Chris Wood – massive individual errors = result.
That’s the formula for Sheffield United” “I’m not sure we played as badly as the score line last weekend, we did OK. Perform that well again against Sheff Utd and I think we’ll get a result whatever personnel are on the pitch”
“Most unlike us to be so poor defensively but fair play to Chelsea for being so clinical. As you say i don’t think teams like Sheff Utd or Newcastle would have punished us as much”
“November’s schedule isn’t unduly daunting,Sheff Utd(a)West Ham(H)Watford(a)Crystal Palace(H)we’ll definitely collect points in those 4 games,like it or lump it they’re the type of games which will determine how comfortable or not the 2nd half of the season will be”
“We’re 10 games into the season and the table is taking shape. We’ve lost 4 games but they’ve been against Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea (4 of the top 5). We’ve taken points from everyone you’d hope we would. The signs are good”
“If we lose to Sheff Utd on Saturday and make it 3 in a row, I’ll drive Dyche to bloody Morecambe myself!!!!”
“Reckon Sheff U will roll us over. Especially at their place and if we continue to be appalling”
“I’m intrigued by Sheff United. They’ve done better than I thought they would. However, we tend to do well against promoted sides under SD.”
“I think Sheffield Utd are doing a Burnley,but better at doing a Burnley than we are at the moment.”
“they were very good at West Ham although should have lost, will be a very very tough game against them” “It will be a physical battle,and if we’re not up for the fight they’ll run over us.”
“it’s only October,but they have a good chance of staying up,admittedly they don’t score loads,however they are hard to break down.Wilder’s doing a brilliant job with essentially a Championship squad.”
“He’s a good manager and very similar to Burnley they all know their roles and the system he wants to play.
Really pleased for Norwood – local lad who loves playing and has worked really hard to get where he is. He’s had plenty of ups and downs in his career but always worked hard.
Will be interesting when we play them – their defensive record is excellent. Will be a tough game for us.”
“Sheffield United’s superb start to the season sees them come into the game as favourites, and for good reason. Tactically astute, they have proven very hard to break down – and shown they are more than capable of mixing it with some of the best teams in the league. Burnley aren’t great on their travels”
“It’s a game we could do with winning, 3 points and we’re probably back in the top ten, lose and we’re getting ominously close to the bottom three. A point would do me as well.”
“Sheffield not lost a game where they’ve been leading at half time since 2014. It’s almost unbelievable”
“In last 30 years or so I think the 9000 we took to sheff utd in the cup would be our best outside of wembley. I remember it well. “
