“Hopefully our half decent home record over the years against Sheff Utd continues.”

“Fancy us v Sheff United at the weekend.”

“Need to keep working hard and hopefully it will click and all come to. Onto Saturday against another top team in Sheffield United who have been in fine form and sit top.”

“Surely there’s got to be a bit of ‘tweaking’…..we have scored 3 goals and Sheff Utd have scored 17.”

“Fernandez looked lively when he came on so there’s a bit of optimism that the goals will come soon. I would have Burnley nailed on for an automatic return to the prem with Sheffield Utd also looking good for promotion, so we will see how we do on Saturday.”

“I think we’ve reached a point were there would be more benefit trying to playing on the front foot and losing rather than sitting back and drawing.”

“You’d think. But because we’re playing top of the league Sheff Utd I fear it will be safety first again.”

“It will be interesting to see if Lowe takes the gutless approach again on Saturday, Sheff utd are great, granted, but we are ok on our day and can’t afford to sit back like we did in Tuesday. Time to show some balls and maybe let them know they can’t come here and turn us over. “

“I’ve got a feeling RL will revert back to the 4 midfielders we were playing earlier in the season, which means 1 up top. Since we pretty much have to play to feet against the lanky Sheff U defense, I’d assume Parrott starts. If we were doing two up top I’d prefer Seani-Riis. “

“Could a 3-4-3 work? With Riis and Maguire/ Parrott either side of Evans? Sheff Utd maybe not the time to try it as they’re probably the best team in the league”

“Sheffield United are going well so far this season, little surprise considering their squad and the money they’ve invested in it”

“We say we are a possession based team. But, the only games we’ve had more possession than the opposition has been Hull, Rotherham and Birmingham. And that last one Vs Brum was bloody awful to watch.
Ill be interested to see how Sheffield Utd’s 3-5-2 fares against us on Saturday. Their RCB Ahmedhozdic has had 14 shots, 3 goals; and actively takes part in their attacking moves.”

“We are playing some of the worst attacking football in recent memory”

“Teams who win promotion aren’t the ones who are the easiest on the eye or necessarily the ones monopolising the ball but the teams who can grind out wins and score important goals at important times. Sheffield United did that on Tuesday and we didn’t. “

“What is there to be positive about ? We may have a good defensive unit but that’s where it ends we have a midfield that create very little and a strike force that must be the most feeble in all 4 divisions, we do our part ,time they did theirs .”
