“Sheffield United next very tough.”
“An upset on the cards ?
A brutal ‘Welcome to the Championship’ for the inexperienced management team ?
A draw ?”
“Need to get some players in January I feel this one will be a tonking
4-1 to the yorkies”
“I fancy an upset on the cards.”
“We’ll tan their hides. 3-0. Fletcher 1, assist by Scully.
Scully 1, assist by Shinnie and a Pearce screamer for the third.”
“Millwall didn’t keep the ball well or press us high – which made our life a lot easier to play more pass and move than it probably should’ve been. Sheff U will definitely be better on and off the ball and I think they’ll press us hard and high – so it we’ll have to work a lot harder to find the time and space Millwall afforded us. Our dfenders being caught in posession is probably a bigger threat with Sheff U’s approach, so we need to pick our moments of when to play out and when to clear our lines.
It’ll be interesting to see how much progress Toure will have made after having over another week with them. So really difficult to know what to expect from us – which hopefully will work in our favour and catch Sheff U by suprise.”
“Heckinbotton has admitted in his interviews that it will be difficult to read anything into the formation or style that KT will set us up with as their is no form guide. He says he will concentrate on what they can do rather than his usual methodical game planning to upset the oppositions plans. This could work either way and we could catch them cold or alternatively as KDZ says their high press game could cause us problems as we struggle to get to grips with a passing game.
For me it could be 1-0 to us if we do catch them out or 3-0 to them if we try and fail to beat their press whilst trying to make the changes. “
“I’m still finding it tough to see where the first win comes from given we have promotion-chasing Sheffield United next then Middlesbrough and Sunderland, both of whom we have horrendous recent records against.”
“Sheff Utd, Middlesbrough and Sunderland left to play in 2022. We could and should realistically lose all three on paper”
“Will be buzzing if we can get even a single point out of our next 3 games if I’m being honest with ya”
“Sheffield united are 21/20 odds to win Monday and yet we would be happy if we could manage one point from the next three games. Just relegate us already if our hope is to get one point from 2 home games and a game away to a team 12th in the table my goodness”
“We always up our game against the top teams. Don’t put up the white flag yet boys”
“Latics charging £29 for the Sheff U game seems like a massive own goal. Live on TV, just before Christmas. Who’s honestly going to pay that? Will be a dreadful crowd for the managers first game now”
“Big away following so will need more policing and GMP don’t work for free”
“Gotta go back to Sep 04 for the last home win vs Sheffield United.
Roberts and Ellington were so laughably dominan that day it probably made the FA seriously consider introducing a mercy rule to professional football.”
“I remember when we panned Nigel Adkins’ Sheffield Utd at the Lane in February 2016, a manager appointed by Mal Brannigan coincidentally. I remember being shocked at just how shit they were and they ended up finishing mid-table that season and Adkins sacked. Chris Wilder took over that summer.
What he did to get that shower to the Premier League within the next three seasons (and have them mid-table before the pandemic hit) is probably one of the best jobs I’ve seen from a manager.”
