” Excellent performance. I can honestly say, I really never doubted it after we went 1 up.”
“What a win! Battled hard in that second half, some great defending, we also had big chances to make it 2 or 3-0. Brilliant start to the season! Up the Blues! “
“What a win, every player played their part. Love it when we out do a team tactically”.
“Tactically spot on. Sheff never massively threatened and we defended solidly”
“Great result. Should really have been a bigger margin though, but no complaints.”
“how many good chances did SU actually create?
How many saves did Sarkic need to make? Far fewer than the number of great chances we created.”
“Quality performance against a top side”
“They will be challenging this year
That was a magnificent win”
“i think we’re overlooking how good Sheff Utd are … personally i’m glad we had that game before they get into their stride”
“Might eat my words here but I don’t think they will be, I think they are still needing a creative spark in that team, very one dimensional”
“To be fair, Sheffield looked knackered at the end, other teams will not look forward to playing us because of the work ethic and never-say-die attitude Lee Bowyer has instilled. What a start to the season! Get in!”
“First time we’ve won three season openers on the bounce since 95-98
All against teams in red and white stripes too”
” don’t want to be that guy but we’ve won 1-0 on opening day for last 3? However this time I just think the team feels different. “
“The ref had a funny game. Was generally good but six yellows – Leko’s was particularly ridiculous – and then allowing the game to stretch for 7 extra minutes.
“He saved us at the end, leko’s challenge would have been another yellow card and in a bad position. I’m sorry but I’ve got to say, Leko could of cost us a few times then he is terrible. Absolutely over the moon with that performance”

Were you watching the same game as me ? We were shit but so were you , you’re no Man City 😂😂
Cant really disagree with any of that, especially the comment about us being one-dimensional. We desperately need a Duffy style player in the midfield, as good as Fleck, Norwood and Berge are at this level they dont have the ability to cut through teams. Had no complaints at the end, Brum came for a point and took 3, fair play.
