“we move onto Sunday, and I believe Farke will pay Sheff U enough respect to set up like we do against the bigger sides- usually, this brings better performances.”

“Beating Sheff Utd would be a massive massive win, they have barely lost away this season.”

“Must beat Sheffield United”

“Not sure if it’s potentially a good or bad thing heading into Sunday that they lost against Newcastle”

“its bad we are exactly who Sheffield want to take out their frustrations on.”

“I do wish Sheff Utd had not lost. Will just make our job harder on Sunday !”

“Worst possible result for us. Sheff Utd will be even more fired up to bounce back.”

“Sheffield Utd to bounce back on Sunday”

“Interesting watching the Sheffield United performance v Newcastle. Norwich are going to have to be at their energetic best on Sunday.”

“Lots of balls played in from wide positions, they worked really hard. You would expect them to score against us to be honest””

Sheff had 70+ % possession, didn’t have too many attempts on target but the Newcastle keeper pulled off some cracking saves. Newcastle only had a few attempts and scored with two of them, the second one being a curious case of Sheff players stopping for offside, Newcastle played to the whistle and scored an easy tap in. Can’t see us defending for the game, keeping a clean sheet.”

“I’m concerned at ourselves for not getting wins in the Premier league which is know for inconsistent results among most of its teams.”

“Sheffield United will be a really tough game”

“Well, we never beat Sheff Utd last season. We drew and lost. So expect something similar as they’ve strengthened and we haven’t. As long as we’re not on the end of a tonking a la Villa and put in a decent enough performance I’ll be happy. I desperately want us to win though! “

“Our boys seem to only get nervous when we expect them to win. Which is why Sunday worries me…”

“Utd will be in our faces from the off and from what I’ve seen so far” “Strong side Sheff Utd…..I for one am slightly worried about Sunday……It’ll be quite physical and Wilder’s side won’t take no prisoners…..”

“We know Sheff U will push and press all over the pitch on Sunday, so I don’t think KG’s front three supporting Pukki is going to offer enough to hold the ball up – especially when we are going to be forced into clearing the ball from defence a lot. I also think Sheff U use tactical fouling to break up play, so we (the players and the crowd) need to be all over the ref to get some yellow cards in early. “

“We have an extra day’s rest than Sheffield United, and there’s no reason why we can’t play on the front foot and win. Should we lose on Sunday, I’ll be seriously concerned again considering we’ve got Leicester, Wolves, Villa and Spurs in our next four after that. “

“Historically they do well travelling here and haven’t lost away this season.   It will be a tough game and we will need to be at our sharpest to win it.”

“I think a lot of us were naive in thinking our slick style was ready made for the Prem and Sheffield United’s more agricultural style would be found out”

“When we got promoted ,I thought with the addition of one or two good signings in the summer and some good loan players we would stay up ,(like Sheff utd) unfortunately we did not make good signings ,and some of the players we already had have shown they are not premier leauge standard .so now i believe we have absolutely no chance of survival we are already 4 points from a safe place ,having played Watford and Southampton and lost its not looking good. Could be all over by the end of Christmas with a mountain to climb”

“think we stand a fairly good chance. This season the table still hasn’t settled after 15 games with 8 points between us in 19th and Sheffield United in 9th.  We still don’t really know who our relegation rivals are going to be although you’d have to assume Watford. To give Sheffield their credit, whilst only winning 1 in the last 6 they’ve drawn 4 so defensive solidarity should be enough. Bournemouth have won 1, lost 4. We’ve won 1, drawn 1, lost 3. Still so much to play for and all the teams are struggling for consistency. “

“.Who is to say we can’t beat Sheff Utd on Sunday and so have got eight points out of twelve in the last four matches, which would be good premier league form”

“Win Sunday and you’re 5pts behind Sheffield United who already have enough points to stay up, apparently”

“They are media hype. They’ve done good, but it’s nothing new or remarkable” “Buendia will sink Sheff Utd on Sunday”

“Attention: any of the (ahem) big clubs reported to be sniffing around our young defenders – have you seen our goals conceded record? Bugger off to Sheff Utd for your resources.”

“I thought the McBurnie transfer was a joke at first, no way in hell is he a £20m PL player. “

“Wilder has been citing his displeasure with VAR after Sheff Utd losing to a fairly mediocre Newcastle.”

“He is a great manager who’s done a brilliant job and has eaten a lot of humble pie since ‘that game’ at Bramall Lane. No ill-feeling here. However, for all the moaning about Shelvey’s goal, what’s the first rule of football? Play to the whistle. If a team of under-8s did that their manager would be livid.”

“You should certainly play to the whistle, something that is taught in many sports from a young age….but to be fair to Wilder I was under the impression that linesmen were meant to keep their flags down. “ 

“Respect to Mr. Wilder for his comments today. And respect for the way he’s getting his team to perform; we’re going to have to improve a helluva lot on Wed. to get anything out of the game.”
