“Must win “

“I don’t think I can honestly dare to watch. No Ricardo, Cags, Madders, Chilly, potentially Kevin”

“They’ll bully us like they did with Chelsea. Our heads have gone.”

“Absolutely dreading this. They’ll bully us”

“What I do know after watching a fair few of their games this season is that they will run and tackle and fight a lot harder than we will and on that basis alone we will lose “

“I will be utterly amazed if we win this. Toothless bottle jobs vs. possibly the grittiest, most determined side in the division. After the Manchester clubs I couldn’t think of a worse team for us to face next. “

“You can see confidence is completely shot .Will be genuinely lucky to get a draw from this”

“As far as I’m concerned its a nailed on Sheffield United win, we don’t have it in us to react, and we don’t have it in us to pick ourselves up. We’ve not done it so far this season since the shit hit the fan, so why now? How many “wake up calls” do we need to kick start our form? Three absolute horror shows to finish on and we will lose all three, and we will lose badly too”

“Based on this weekend’s performances, this could get ugly. However, when is football ever predictable.”

“We are not going to have an easy game against the blades. They are a formidable opponent on their day!”

“These are too good for us, their players are fighting hard for a good finish”

“Not a chance we beat these lot. Come on, they’ve got everything we don’t.”

“This one could be embarrassing, which will teach me for giving my Sheff Utd supporting Mrs so much shit about how we are better than them. “

“I see them winning this by half time. This side can’t take pressure. Sheff United will be all over us. We will crumble. It’s happened every time this season. “

“Their wingbacks will run us ragged”

“They’ll out fight us and they are a genuinely dangerous side. We won’t cope with their physicality and quality of crosses and link up play on the wings.”
“mcgoldrick to get his first PL hat trick. any other player to score who hasn’t scored in the past few years for them.”

“I really like Basham”

“I like that McBurnie, he’d score goals anywhere.”

“If Sheffield Utd end up beating us then I’ll stand and applaud them. They have everything that we don’t, bottle, fight and passion, three elements that have got them to where they are. Look at their form since football returned, they started off appallingly, yet they’ve managed to bounce back because of the three elements I mentioned. Wilder possesses a backbone, his no nonsense style is what makes him likeable.”

“Sheffield are the 3rd best team in the country.”

“Got nothing but respect for Sheffield United and what they’re doing this season. I hope they make Europe this season, it’d be great for English football. We need to be at our best on Thursday”

“I’ve watched quite a bit of Sheffield this season really like how they play they play some really good football at times”

“It’s really, really difficult to dislike Sheff United.”

“Sheffield United merit a place in Europe ahead of us really. I wouldn’t begrudge it to them.”

“Just shows you how well we did to win at Bramall Lane, I recall a lot on here seemed disappointed to only win 2-1 & with the general performance that day against a newly promoted side. Should never underestimate an away win in the premier league”

“Sheff utd remind me of us in 15/16. Well organised, hard working and highly effective use of the ball. Mcburnie is their okazaki”

“Defensively perhaps but they don’t have the world class players that turn good teams into great teams. I think without Vardy Mahrez and Kante we would of been like Sheffield Utd this year in 15/16. “

“I don’t think they’re that good but I can’t see us winning. They’ll leave space for Vardy.”

“Morgan with the 2 lumps Sheffield u could make sense, but Bennett match fit. Maybe 3 5 2 again. Barnes should start too.”

“Actually, never thought I’d say this, but Wes should start against McBurnie.”

“Wes would probably deal with mcburnie better than any of our defenders.”

“If there was an opposition that Morgan could be ok with its probably Sheffield United. He might help with the physical stuff. Will have to be centre of a back 3, Evans might be more comfortable on the left hand side too.”

“We should be playing the 3 centre backs against these. They aren’t going to expose us for pace like Arsenal did.”

“I see Sheffield players the same as Burnleys. I’d be weary of signing any of them as they simply just play well as a group and make each other look good.
wouldnt be confident any of them could perform as well at another club”

“If (IF) we play to our abilities we will beat Sheff Utd and Spurs. “

“Hopefully Vardy’s strong dislike for Sheffield United is worth a couple of goals!”

  1. Tough one to call but i would be happy with a draw here, although on current form 3 pts isn’t a far reach, good luck Leicester i recon you might need it lol

    1. Leicester were the best side I’ve seen at the Lane this season. Things have changed since, so I’m confident of at least a draw, especially if we keep that prat Vardy quiet!

  2. You schooled us at the Lane. The best side I’ve seen there this season. Should be a good game as you probably got your shocker out of the way in the 2nd half at Bournemouth
