“We have won one point in their last nine league matches against Sheffield United (D1 L8), since a 1-1 away draw in the 2010-11 season.”
“the battles we used to have back in the Sheff Utd days were top drawer”
“Overall home form against the red half of the “steel city” is not impressive at all. Reading have the edge but only by 10 wins to 9 and have lost every one of the last 5 home league games played since “Gillespiegate” in 2007 by an aggregate of 4 goals to 14, so I spy a trend that rather desperately requires some bucking.”
“another hard duel.
United aren’t having a good time of it so far as their malaise of last season’s relegation from the PL has continued to plague them into what they were no doubt thinking would be a more successful season at a lower level.

“Still feel we’ve got tomorrow in the bag”
“With players potentially coming back as early as Tuesday, I am more optimistic than I was a few weeks ago.”
“without getting too carried away, our football at times, and the ability of each of our players on the ball means we are a good side”
“Carroll was decent, obviously not match fit but looked sharp enough for a cameo from the bench. Would’ve loved him to get a goal, think it might come on Tuesday”
“I’m not feeling too nervous despite being 2 points off the drop. We’re better than Barnsley, Hull and Peterborough and as long as we don’t lose to one of those we’ll be fine.”
“When we are relegated which will happen. It will be years before we get back. Leeds 5 years, Sheffield Utd 5 years, Forest 6 years Sunderland 4 years and counting. Pompey 10 years. These are much bigger better supported teams than us.”
“Nothing to be excited about but I did notice the stadium was fuller than usual on Saturday. We had a 15k attendance, must be the highest of the season surely.
Lets hope some fans come back now we know our fate with the EFL and get behind the team.”
