“On to the FA Cup then. Not quite the same excitement as when I was a kid but still a chance to get to Wembley and maybe into Europe. The Blades have had a decent run in the league so it’s certainly no gimme despite them having to do without their star loanee MGW.”
“Go strong Bruno, lets have a real go now in the cup, come on.
“Would rest Neves personally and bring Donk in, Hoever & Ait Nouri full backs, Bring Sanderson in, Fabio up top. I would imagine they would play Ruddy as it seems to be the way we do things.
That team should be good enough to beat Sheff Utd. Would also play Trincao and tell him go on and rip it up against (supposedly) weaker opposition.”
“I would imagine that Sheff Utd will play a full strength side given that they haven’t played since before Xmas and look out of the promotion places. They hardly need a rest. We shouldn’t rest too many players ourselves.”
“If we can’t make a few changes and beat Sheffield United….then realistically are we gonna win the cup”
“Of course some players will be rested but hoping we’re taking the cup seriously and put out a strong XI. With favourable draws, we have as good a chance as anyone to go far in this competition. Oh for a bit of cup glory again!”
“Not sure if it’s been mentioned elsewhere but Adlene Guedioura might feature for Sheffield. Not the most prolific of goalscorers, but when they went in they were usually pretty special (think he won our goal of the season and Forest’s in the same year).”
“He’s 36! Hasn’t really featured much for Sheffield United this season. Jakanovic brought him in on a free. Not sure he features much in Heckingbottoms plans, but I’m sure he will get a decent reception if he plays.”
“No respectable club is going to want to take our young talent on loan if we yank them back the moment they start contributing!
We owe it to Sheffield United to keep MGW there for their play-off push.
MGW back in the summer after a successful loan spell is far more appealing than back in January with his mission only half accomplished.”
“A good point but it depends if there was any discussion about the possibility at the start of the loan. If it was agreed as a season-long loan at the start you are correct but if we said we would review in January it would be perfectly reasonable to recall him.”
“I think we need to be looking at what’s best for Wolves, not worrying about Sheff U.”
” if Sheffield United get promoted this season. Could we really blame the lad – and I predict that he will be a future English international – if he wishes to play regularly in the Premiership or go back to a club where the manager doesn’t appear to be interested in his development and where a high proportion of fans on this website (should he be foolish enough to read these comments) advocate his moving on. With Trincao showing improvement and Neto on the way back, I suspect he will remain at Sheffield United to the end of the season.”
“Think it might be a discussion of if MGW wants to come back and what guarantees the club make him as I know he wants to be playing. I think he will go back to Sheff United unless the club really put their foot down.”
“Anyone remember when Graham Taylor waded into the crowd and tried to make a citizen’s arrest? Was it at Sheff U”
