“Good draw for us, last pre-season game before Leicester.”

“Well at least it’s at home”

“Hmm! hardly the easiest tie, I guess both sides will field 2nd string line-up’s, due to it intersecting PL weekends.”

“Do we have enough players to do that!?”

“Just about as it stands, but the bench will likely be filled with kids again, their squad depth is no doubt better than ours, hence why I’d make them favourites to advance.
Most people don’t seem that fussed about this comp anyway, so they won’t lose any sleep if we go out early once again.”

“We should play a full strength team to beat Sheffield and then have an easier match in the 3rd round. Excellent chance of reaching the 4th!
Time to go for it!”

“Would not surprise me if Sheff Utd turn it on with their new batch of players. “

“oh well, we can concentrate on the league.”

“I have very little interest in this Mickey Mouse competition. Sooner we’re out, the better”

“After Sheffield’s excellent season,ambitious manager will go for a win,our manager has absolutley no interest in this and has little ambition in cup games”

“Last season sheff United bucked the trend for a promoted side, they did increadably well.
This season will be different, all three prompted sides with struggle as usual”

“Leeds could do a “Sheff Utd” of last season”

“Leeds will stay up. Liverpool, Spurs and Sheff. United may struggle to do as well as last season.”

“Sheff Utd going down this season. I just don’t think they are as good as last season made them out and may struggle if they don’t start well. “

“Wilder is a top manager, Sheff Utd won’t be anywhere near the bottom imho (I’ve been known to be wrong nearly all the time though !)”

“we are in a state of limbo and a position where they are unable to compete for some of the players pursued by rivals such as Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Newcastle United. “

“Sheffield Utd, Palace, Brighton, and a few others have made good purchases”

“Championship clubs are feeling the pinch just like we are. Example being the two Derby full backs who went to Sheff Utd for less than £15m combined when Derby were reportedly asking for that figure for just one of them (Bogle) around 12 months ago.”

“Sheff Utd are willing to pay more than us”

“Sheffield United are owned by Saudi Arabia, we’re not.”

“Sometimes it’s easier for the clubs on the rise like sheff United to sell the excitement of being the place to be.”

“none of sheffield united’s new signings look good enough to make the first XI”

“With Seffield Utd increasing their squad with players likely to be in the starting 11 or around it, there may be some players become available. One is John Luscomb who I have been quite impressed with this year in the PL.Has 12 months on contract and apparently not signing, plus I suspect well in our wage range. I know he is 30 but he is more athletic than our 3 current midfielders and harder to knock off the ball, and looks very fit. Reminds me of Scotty Arfield at his best and has goals in him. Definitely a Dyche player. A two year deal, the option of a third for the club to activate him might get him. I can just see one of the promoted clubs going for him if we dont”

“John lundstram who is 26 plays for sheff utd
John luscombe who’s 30 I can’t recall seeing turn out for sheff utd”
