“Nice confidence boosting 3-0 win please. “
“We should be beating these and Burnley, really. “
“Think we will win. “
“Huge game in lots of ways. If we win this and play well we could go on a bit of a run”
“ Need a bit of a performance here. Get everyone’s confidence flowing again.”
“3 points a must here, could potentially define the season. Lose/draw and then go out in the League Cup in the same week could potentially cause chaos.”
“Just a win will be fine and fully braced for it to not be free flowing, chances galore and a hiding though strong chance we could boss possession and chances “
“I can see us grinding out a hard earned win. But it’s not going to be a pleasant match to watch.”
“One of the characteristics of the new NUFC is our fitness in the second half of games. Let’s see how long Sheffield can battle for.”
“I don’t not think this will be pretty.
Sheffield United will sit in their low block, crowd the middle of the park and try to force us out wide. I was reading earlier they’ve conceded 114 shots already this season.
They’ve been competative though and while they’re outperforming their xG, they will try to utilise their pace up top as well as set pieces.
We should win, but if we don’t score early it could be a tough watch”
“How do these set up? I was going to predict a relatively easy win, but then I thought back to games against Bournemouth and Leeds where they just parked the bus and we couldn’t really get behind them. “
“Another game of struggling to break down a parked bus. Gonna be fun! “
“ Nervous for this. We’ll be expected to win and while they’ve ridden their luck they have stayed in games.
Lost 2-1 to Forest in the 89th minute
Lost 2-1 to City in the 86th minute
Lost 2-1 to Spurs with goals in the 98th and 100th minutes
They’ve also managed to score in every game but their first despite not creating all that much. We’re going to need to be on it. “
“Bit nervous about this one. Sheff U deserve more points than what they’ve got. I fancy us to keep a clean sheet though.”
“I wouldn’t take a draw if you offered it, but it probably wouldn’t be the worst result in the world. In literally every other season since the beginning of football they’d have just won at Spurs, so they’re obviously not mugs.”
“Anyone expecting some changes this weekend?
Big game against City mid week after a difficult game vs Milan Tuesday. Players like Trippier and Burn have played every min of every game so far and Trip’s also played a full 90 for England and isn’t getting any younger. “
“McBurnie is out for these, their only competent striker”
“their best player is out cos he can’t follow simple rules.”
“Probably not as good of a thing as it may first seem. Probably means Traore comes in for him. I’d much rather see our backline up against a McBurnie type player as apposed to two quick players willing to run in behind.”
“Just watched MOTD, gawd that Blades boss is a whiney bitch. Hope we hammer them and he’ll be bitchin once again. “
“It seems to be the no 1 requirement for PL managers now, to be cry babies.”
“we seem to get a lot of managers to cry It’s great. “
