“A tough first away fixture in the league. They are no mugs and are hotly tipped to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. On the flip side we made a decent start to our league campaign and sit on the top of the league. We also have a decent record there and they probably think of us as their bogey team so they will be trying extra hard to get three points on Saturday. They only lost narrowly to Boro last weekend and they are another highly fancied side to be in the top six come the end of the season.”
“Hopefully the team will be back to its roaring best for Saturday’s game at Sheffield! Anything less, and the Blades could end up putting us to the sword!”
“Looking forward to the trip to Sheffield, nailed on 3 pts. It’s what we do”
“Death, taxes and Jake Cooper to score against Sheffield United”
“the Sheff U fans don’t want juicy Jake to play”
“Sheff Utd are a good side”
“The enormous financial advantage (parachute payments) that Norwich, Watford, Burnley, WBA, Sheff Utd and a few others start with means that a p/o place must be the minimum that they should expect.
The current system needs overhauling asap. “
“I don’t hold out much hope for a win and will take a 0-0 right now. We love a draw, so I hope we get one.”
“I don’t even care about the result in the cup was never going to win the competition and wasn’t our best side and a lot of changes, but going to sheff u with honeyman suspended, oloafe and Bradshaw injured, Zian flemming probably injured as well l, team selection was awful imo”
“Honeyman should not start against lower league teams who has a suspect get stuck in at all costs mentality. You can’t afford to be sitting out a suspension against a top Sheffield utd team. GR should have took him off when he got his 1st yellow card, leaving him on was a sin.”
“Bradshaw should start thinking of a career after football as to be injured as regularly as he is I cant see him playing for much longer. Add to that the Dutch lad and only a matter of time before Bennett is back on the treatment table and yet again we are looking at a season plagued with injuries. The good thing is we have better back up in most positions this season except maybe up front but hopefully that will be addressed before the window closes.
Not sure about the line up but would take a point and would imagine we will set up hoping for one”
“Just shows you though, we haven’t got any real depth.”
“I’d like to think he won’t slip into defensive mode and go 5 at the back but think he will. Tough game in one of many northern shite holes.”
“Bramall Lane is not a good ground for us “
“I got the shit beaten out of me at Sheff Utd many years ago so I’m not going unless I get a bodyguard.”
“You’ll have around 1500 of em mate…”
“Tickets £28.60 bit weird why not just £28.50 or £29”
“10p tourist tax to visit Sheffield.”
“Its a 10p surcharge for having the boundless joy of visiting wonderful Yorkshire and having the pleasure of meeting its delightful constabulry & the UK.s premier population.”
“Fixtures look pretty drab this season. Sheffield united home and away is decent for obvious reasons and possibly Sunderland but that’s it.”
“People like to moan we always get Sheffield United mid week and that they can’t go then and we’ve got them first league away match and we can’t sell 1500 tickets. I get people have there reasons for not making it but 1500 is not a lot of tickets. It’s poor”
“In most football grounds there is very little difference between the atmosphere in the ground and the atmosphere in your own home. At least at home you’re allowed to say what you like. Sound off or sound on, football is more of a visual spectacle now but without pretty cheerleaders”.
“The difference is , getting a train, no local pubs , sitting watching football/ soccer not in a big group bouncing up and down giving it , in a soulless stadium and going home.
Post covid has really killed and atmosphere , just a couple of songs most weeks or just betting on how many throw in we have to make bet fair richer.most prem grounds are full of trippers and there is a lot to be said of fans in the lower leagues.”
