“Sheffield United are virtually evens to beat Posh on Saturday night That is printing money”
“We’re not going to push on from this point let’s be realistic we’ve got Sheff Utd next. They’re going to run rings around us”
“A big crowd and buzzing atmosphere v Sheffield Utd could be ideal game follow up game on Saturday I feel.”
“What worries me more about the Birmingham game is how mentally damaging it could be. At 2-0 we were carrying momentum into the weekend and we’d have had a big crowd and lots of positivity.”
“Play in a similar way on Saturday to how we did against Birmingham and we stand a chance. Benda may be busier on Saturday though”
“You take what you can get in the road these days. Gutting that we let it slip though. Performance good enough to think we might get something Saturday, but you never know with us”
“Think we’ll grab another point on Saturday, which puts us in a good position against reading, who I think will lose”
“a performance like the first 80 minutes will trouble a much better than Brum opposition Saturday and a win last night could have had us accepting a point v the blades, that now makes 3 points even more important.”
“Was a good performance if you don’t include the last five minutes. It’s Sheffield, last time they were on a bad run then played like Barcelona. Will be tough and we need at least a draw out of this.”
“we have to beat Sheff U.”
“I’m onto Sheff Utd with more positives than negatives on reflection.”
“Another massive game for us – they are bumbling around mid table and, as Preston showed last night, these “big clubs” are nothing to be scared of – let’s go for it again and win”
“I was about to say, “same team for Saturday please”, but I suppose the players who made the first half so great will now be knackered.”
“They’ll be looking to get into the top 10 this season”
“This is certainly the haves vs the have nots for the price of Rhian Brewster, Sander Berge and oli McBurnie combined you could by our club and separately re-sign all our players, those three cost Sheffield in total approximately £60 million.”
“Biggest difference is Posh now have forwards which terrify defenders with pace.”
“Their pace would scare the shit out of Sheff Utd. We desperately need to gamble 1 point against 3 right now, or it will soon be too late.”
“we have concede d20 goals in the last 15 minutes of league games. The next worst record is 11 (Sheff Utd)”
“Teams that concede late goals get relegated. It’s a combination of fitness and ability. If the ability is lacking, the fitness needs to be amped up to cover for it. We seem to be lacking both.”
“The thing is… the rapid concessions now are almost a self-fulfilling prophecy – and I don’t believe it’s “mental fragility” as such, more a desire to not do it that perversely leads to that happening.
We concede one, and because it’s happened so many times, the whole team must think, “Don’t concede again, whatever you do, don’t concede again”.
Then inevitably, because that is our focus, they’re all concentrating on being solid, they give up on any attacking “risk”, which just leads to unrelenting pressure.
We’d be far better off responding to a concession by thinking “go and equalise/retake the lead/get one back” and committing men forward. “
