“Congratulations, that was by far the worst performance at home by some margin.”
“Well, that was just dreadful – sometimes you come up against a premiership level team but you have to go at it like a 3rd round FA cup tie as the underdogs”
“A lame home performance against a much bigger club. Big noisy away support and an easy 3 points.”
“Sometimes you just have to acknowledge that the opposition were miles better than us, tonight was one of those nights. They never let us settle, pressed the whole match and when they looked like they were tiring they got the second goal. It’s not our players or managers fault, we simply aren’t good enough, the gulf between league one and the championship is enormous. We did well to keep it to 0:2. “
“A gulf in quality and depth to Sheff U, exacerbated by a gulf in confidence.”
“It was like a training exercise for Sheff Utd tonight.”
“Painful to watch. Men against boys. They pressed and harassed and we huffed and puffed. They were physical we were hysterical. Could have been double figures.”
“Too comfortable for Sheff Utd”
“They’re just miles better than us and in good form.”
” We made Sheff Utd look like Barcelona”,
“Sheffield United barely had to get out of first gear to win that tonight”
At least against Bournemouth we set out to do a hatchet job and get a point. This was just impotent attacking and flaky defence.”
“We were lucky not to be 2 or 3 down at the break. It didn’t get any better in the second half either. “
“Just got to admit that Sheffield where better than us. Bigger team. Stronger on and off the ball. Players missing. We tried in that first half then Sheffield United stepped it up a gear in the second”
” mcburnie and Brewster cost £20 million + each which shows the gulf but we were very very poor. Fortunate to go in level at half time and naively I expected us to have a go 2nd half – nope, not even an effort at goal. “
“Our season won’t be defined by results against Sheff Utd – a team filled with several 20k per week earners. Stick with them”.
“That was just tragic all across the pitch.
Dodgy at the back, unable to string passes together in the middle and created one proper chance up top all game. “
“Got exactly what we deserved. That was so so so poor. “
“We were bad, really bad “
“Watching that tonight has just confirmed what I already thought. We’re going down. The depressing thing is that even if we come back up again, nothing will change. We just don’t have the resources to cope. People can point to Blackpool and Hull. They are bigger clubs with bigger fan bases. They were both in the Premier League not that long ago. “
“I didn’t see a lack of effort. A lack of quality, yes. But I thought most of the players out there put a shift in. They just weren’t good enough. “
“I appear to be in a minority but I didn’t think we were that bad. Certainly first half. But the gulf in quality was so obvious. They brought on John Fleck and David McGoldrick whereas we brought on Joel Randall and Joe Ward. “
” The one chance aside their goalkeeper could have sat on the bench 2nd half”
“Good finishes from Sheff Utd but they haven’t needed to do much to take the points”
“it’s a good job Sheff can’t hit a cows arse with a banjo”
“Mick McCarthy saying everyone on the Sheff Utd bench would get in the Peterborough team, which is pretty damning.
and when you look at their bench too true. “
“Mick McCarthy could probably get in our team”.
“I’d say there’s a fair few Sheffield United players watching at home on TV that would too. “
“How sheff didnt get more yellow cards I don’t know, easily could of had 4/5”
One thought on “View From Peterborough”
The Two players we brought on, Fleck & Magoldrick were Free Transfers….
