“Just for a teeny bit of context; beating Sheffield United isn’t for everyone.”

“I’ve got to say, I didn’t think Sheffield United were terrible. Dunno what they’re like week in and week out, but they’re by far not the worst team we’ve played, I’m not sure what they’re doing at the bottom. Some of their build up play was decent, and they worked hard in defence.”

“I can see why they’re around the bottom, but I’m used to watching teams put everyone behind the ball and they did that well, and when they did break I thought they played some tidy stuff until they got to the final third. They weren’t spectacular obviously butthere’s plenty of teams we’ve played who have been worse. I don’t have to think about them again now, though, best of luck to them because they need it with that points total. “

“Sheffield United are a very hard team to play against when they are like this, but jesus we made hard work of that. Great win, but a tough watch. Not sure I’ve seen us create so little in a game.”

“Sheffield United are a good team”

“Sheffield United are a very decent, stubborn side”

“Truly awful spectacle, but great 3 points. Nearly shat myself when Fleck struck that shot at the end.”

“Fair play to the blades, I hope they stay up, especially for putting the rags in their place at prawn Trafford”

“ Have to give some credit to Sheffield Utd for defending quite well. Their keeper made a few good saves too.”

“Happy for the win because Sheffield defended pretty well but we were all sideways. Missed Stone’s passing from out of the back and Cancelo popping up in random places. Not many teams batter Sheffield so don’t want to get too carried away but we were pretty passive today”

“Good win against a well organised side.”

“A bit of a non event, credit to Sheffield for making it hard for us but we never looked threatened”

“Always tight against SU. 3 points”

“Bit dull. They defended very well.”

“Great 3 points against the Great Wall of Yorkshire”

“Never looked uncomfortable without ever looking entirely comfortable!”

“really boring game. i seem to just recall constant passes across the halfway line. Decent win though, clean sheet, move on!”

“Bloody awful. 90 minutes of my life I won’t get back. 3 points. Top of the league. But my god that was dull.”

“Sheff Utd as expected defended for their lives with all 10 outfield players behind the ball and then just went to long balls up the pitch near the end.”

“Embarrassing from a team that is way off of the pace and still park on the bus even though they are getting beat”

“They really do know how to suck the life out of a football match”

“Sheff made it a bore fest.”

“Sheff United were absolutely shocking and literally had zero intention of attacking until the last 5 mins”

“They had absolutely nothing upfront, it’s easy to look good defensively when teams play a back 5 and everyone behind the ball. They basically had one chance which was a volley from outside the box. Even against United their winner felt like the slowest attack of all time, just a good job United’s defenders are even slower!”

“Teams like Sheffield United still think this is the old City with Otamendi, Garcia and Old Stones at the back where if you keep it tight and 1-0 you have a chance for a draw at the end.
Its not the old City. You don’t have a chance at 1-0. “

“Remember Wilder v Rags. They have world class players. Wilder v Us money money blah blah
lets see if he does the money card again today”

“They were a set of big lads and physically dominated us for spells ,and kicked the crap out of us when they couldn’t. I thought they kept their shape , passed the ball well and competed hard sometimes fairly.”

“Another win, this time against an obdurate and skillfully dirty team ”

“Such a dirty team”

“No injuries despite their best efforts.
Crap ref.”

“Good win against a very well organised team of thugs. Can’t understand how they are bottom given how shit for e g. Albion are !”

“Bunch of cloggers, but not surprising when allowed to get away with it by a myopic referee. Dirty Baldcock should have had at least 4 yellows.”

“Could have had 2 pens.wtf re foul throws. How many fouls on Foden? “

“How Foden isnt on a stretcher tonight i’ll never know…..their game plan was clear and the ref allowed them to play it out.”

“Wins a Win but not a great performance but considering one of the most corrupt officiating performances and we were playing 15 it will do.”

“sketchiest prem ref I’ve ever seen, truly suspect, stone faced corrupt mo fo”

“That ref was as corrupt as they come.”

“Thought the ref worked his balls off today to try to even things up.”

“ref tried his level best to give them everything.”

“I couldn’t stand another second of them two pricks willing Sheffield United to score, outrageous commentary once again.”

“that’s why they’re going to go down. Can’t understand why the commentators were praising Wilder. Not only is it terrible football, it’s also extremely ineffective as evidenced by their position in the table.”

“Getting really tedious playing games against teams like Sheff Utd , no ambition , no football , just survivalists , its all about the Premier league money , no entertainment value at all , wouldnt cross the road to watch a Wilder team , no doubt he will be moaning about some decision after the game or the money we have spent .Just go and f*ck off and get back where you belong in the Championship , just wasted nearly two hours of my life watching a tedious boring football team who offered nothing . Cheltenham gave us a better game and showed more bottle than Wilders shower of shite.”

“Surprised teams that like to park the bus dont get called out by the premier league etc. As this style of football can only damage the premier league selling point. Who wants to watch that ?!”

“appreciate the difference in players ability , we have spent millions but surely a manager has to improve his players no matter what level they are at , play a system that atleast enables them to get past the half way line , would rather witness a team playing more expansively and losing 2-4 than just accepting a 0-1 defeat before they even kick a ball. Managers like Wilder and Allardyce are dinosaurs.”

“Any game can throw up a surprise but our side are different gravy”

“the difference between us and the scum is MASSIVE”

“We will batter them”

“I can’t see anything but a win by at least 2 clear goals.”

“they’ve just played their hearts on and that would of been a cup final feeling for them, and well done, but they will come down to earth with a bang”

“don’t worry about Sheffield United on Saturday … they’re not going to win twice in a row, especially two away trips to Manchester … they’ve used up their quota of all the luck”

“this Sheffield team is the least talented group I’ve ever scene.
Normally, these teams have one or 2 guys who are uniquely skilled but flawed. They had none. All hardworkers no flair.”

“Blades are missing O’Connell (for season) and Berge who was injured before Christmas out for a while. Egan will be back from suspension, probably in place of Jagielka who will probably be lying down in a darkened room until at least Sunday after his performance last night. Might have Burke up front for some pace. Yep, little quality but very hard workers and rarely get hammered. But we turn up, we win.”

“They are bottom of the league for a reason, we are top for a reason.”

“As much as I am thankful and happy for Sheffield beating the rags, I can’t see us defending like United so I don’t see much chance for Sheff to get anything”

“Not overly concerned about this game.
Reason being,I never bought in to the Rags were title challengers.One or two said i was wrong.I wasn’t,you take away all their Pens,and other VAR gifts,and you are left with a pretty ordinary mid table side.Rags are not much different to Sheff United.
Dont mean it will be an easy game,it wont.
I expect they will put up a bit of resistance early on.Then we will take full control,and win comfortably.
Our Football will do the talking.”

“the Blades won’t be able to hold our attack from all directions, they are just not good enough this season”

“Will be down to how we go about putting our chances away. Got a narrow win at theirs and against WBA we actually only had 7 shots on target despite our dominance but put 5 away. We saw what happens when we miss chances galore in the home game v West Brom and also Brighton where we were fortunate to get 3 points.
Hopefully we still have our shooting boots on”

“To be fair on West Brom,they didnt park the bus,they tried but we were so much better. I respect teams that try. We have taught so much to the premier league. So many teams now try to adopt our style but dont have Pep to guide them beyond the goalkeeper passing to a defender.
Every time I get on the tube in London I can not but help sing to myself,mind the gap,mind the gap man utd !!
Sheffield will park the bus sadly.”

“They will put everything in the box & defend for their lives. Take our chances we win”

“Sheffield United will completely park the bus against us, I think they’ll start Burke and Brewster to try catch us on the break, Then again I think we’ve found a way to nullify the counter attacks against these sort of teams.
For Sheffield United to get anything from us they will need to have a worldie from every single player and need enormous amounts of luck.”

“At worst Sheffield United are going to be another one of those irritating bus parking teams.
Although even though they won against United I wasn’t too impressed with them. I felt they were leaving spaces that could have been exploited. United were just that bad..”

“Winning tonight might make them think they can play a bit of football against us…which would be nice for a change…”

“Reckon Sheff Utd will be a lot more defensive against us than they were last night. Expect them to just sit back in their bank of 10 defenders and let us play, but they’ll be knackered (physically and mentally) after last night’s performance and that should lead to errors, just hope our passing is as crisp, fast and incisive as it’s been for the last few weeks, ’cause if it is, it’s an “easy” win for us and we could absolutely batter them, but I’ll take 1-0 and a scrappy bore-fest to be honest 🙂
They were given free rein to kick us off the park last time we played them in Laporte’s comeback game (Baldock especially if memory serves me right), any chance we’ll get any protection/fairness from the ref, or will we get more yellow’s than them due to our “horrible” tactical nudges which are obviously far worse crimes than two footed lunges”

“Can someone contact Wilder before the game and see if he wants any rule changes before kick off? Might save some grief.”

“Even though they have improved recently they’ve still looked poor defensively.”

“They’ve not proved easy to beat in previous games so this may require a patient approach but that has often been the story of our season. As ever we need to make sure we don’t give anything away on the break or concede daft set pieces.”

“Massive Banana skin”

“I was impressed with how hard Sheff Utd battled on Wednesday. They were running through walls for each other putting in strong challenges all over the pitch”

“Fleck was the best player on the pitch in the first half last night, someone we really need to keep an eye on.”

“Their result against United is a good warning shot for us not to take them lightly, strongest lineup possible please”

“Sheff Utd have 16 games yet have a 21 goal differential , they are nowhere near as bad as their results have shown.We are in good nick but Sheff Utd can beat anybody and our run will come to an end sometime this season its how you bounce back from a poor result that matters most.”

“Sheff utd gave us a really hard game at home last season, and played nice football in the process, incredible how far they have fallen and how quickly”

“It’s been tough watching us struggling to score against them the last three games we have faced each other.”

“They will come to ours with their tails up and we must be wary. However, they gave it their all tonight so if we keep it tight at the back and score early their heads might drop and fatigue set in from exertion of a non stop battle in beating the rags. We can punish them and put them sword but having watched them beat United you never know. They need at least a draw so will need to try and counter us and take any chances they get, and hopefully (touch wood) we can keep another clean sheet.
it is the strangest season in the history of the PL and anything can happen
Any Sheffield United fans reading I wish you good luck in avoiding the drop. Good luck and best wishes starting after the game on Saturday of course”

“Sheffield are quite fortunate they had such an easy midweek fixture. Allows them to rest up and conserve energy before playing us this weekend”

“Pack of absolute melts”

“Over the last 30 years, it was probably the worst performance.”

“Credit to Sheffield United though. They didnt even have a full bench. Came with a plan that we couldn’t get the better of.”

“that was a great defensive performance from Sheffield. They got their tactics and discipline right then fate rewarded them with two goals”

“That’s what they call a reality check….Sheffield United were excellent”

“Deserved result. We’ve been shit for a long time but scraping wins. Today our luck ran out.”

“Never looked like winning it.”

“SU played well and deserved the win, but again, we were useless”

“To think we lost this game at home with fans or without itself is embarrassing all credit to Sheffield United fully deserved it”

“Why did we respect Sheffield United??!!”

“Didn’t give Sheff Utd any respect, got found out with a shoddy performance.”

.”couldn’t make it any easier for Sheff Utd.”

“Clubs like Burnley and Sheffield Utd and even Wolves have become good at defending with 7 or 8 players and it is hard to break down. Giving away 2 stupid goals didn’t help and we didn’t get the break on the Martial one.
I think not having home crowds helps them as it’s harder to build intensity.”

“out classed by an extremely mediocre team”

“If you can’t break down the bottom of the table. Who have 9 players out, and can’t even fill their bench. Then you don’t deserve to be where we are in the league.”

“Embarrassing result for all United supporters. We should rightly get stick for losing at home to a side in Sheff Utd’s position.”

“I can’t fecking believe we’ve lost to Sheffield United. Sheffield United!!! That’s more embarrassing than the 1-6”

“Guess who City are playing this weekend, Sheffield United at home. Do you think there’s even a remote possibility of Pep or his players being complacent? Expect another 5-0.”

“Guarantee that City will give United a lesson in how to thrash Sheffield at the weekend.”

” City will be without Aguero and KDB and will probably bench Jesus and City will batter Sheffield United 4 or 5 nil… this is why United are useless!!! It’s Sheffield bloody united!!!”

“Man city will put 5 of 6 past Sheffield United on Saturday, you watch. A proper team, that have the quality and the manager to win the league.”

“Clubs only ever want to play out of their skins against us & rubbish against every other team Sheffield United play them blue bas***ds at the weekend watch them defend really badly & allow them to put lots of goals past them guaranteed”

“NOBODY worth their salt loses to Sheffield United.”

“It’s Sheffield United! Couldn’t even fill their bench!”

“Sheffield United are cannon fodder. Sheffield United just won 2-1. Sheffield United are bottom of the league. I cannot believe what I have just witnessed. No onslaught. Everything was around the box. No kitchen sink and bombardment. Anybody?”

“losing to sheffield at home is the height of it. Complacency!!!”

“No-one to blame but ourselves. Sheffield United didn’t do much.”

“Can’t believe we lost 1st spot against such team on our home with such goals.”

“I dont even think Sheffield United have defended like we did for the 2nd goal all season”

“Sheffield United have scored 2 goals in only 2 games this year, both against United. You do not win a title defending like this. the forward play today was depression inducing.!”

“Sheffield Utd’s big day out.”

“Were Sheffield United actually trying to score that second goal?
The move had all the pace of a team trying to walk it to the corner flag to waste time.
They couldn’t believe their luck”

” shithouses played for a draw.”

“We were awful today, that won’t change, BUT Sheffield were extremely lucky with both of their goals, and we should’ve had the martial one-they didn’t deserve to win the game. “

“The only plus is that we won’t have to face Sheffield next season, cos they’re so shit they’ll be relegated.”

“Commentators creaming themselves over the sheff utd players got old”

“Can’t Sheffield United celebrate their victory? ….if you are a true Man U fan,you would definitely be happy for them. They’ve shown us that there’s more to be done.”

“I’d rather have Wilder in charge than Ole”

“As crap as United were tonight – and we were undoubtedly – if it’s not a foul for Sheffield United’s opener then it isn’t one for Martial’s that was disallowed. They’re either both goals or both fouls.”

“No excuse for not beating these”

“The Blades are woeful”

“Can’t let these cnuts score against us, they’re shite.”

“Lads, its Sheffield united. Lets give some of the stiffs a chance to get a last minute January move”

“On paper should be an easy win but you never know with midweek games – they can sometimes produce funky results. However, we should win and quite comfortably. SU have been very toothless this season and also not as strong at the back.”

“Can’t underestimate them.
But it’s definitely an important game”

“It’s a league game and despite them being cut off, Sheffield United haven’t rolled over for anyone when I’ve seen them.”

“Sheffield seem to give us a good game every time”

“Treat this one with total seriousness.”

“Proper banana skin, last time they played us I felt they’d get points and get to safety easy… maybe they were just game raising cnuts.”

“Has anyone watched Sheffield United closely since we last played them?
I saw them draw vs Brighton with 10 men and they were up for that game, since then they beat a poor Newcastle but around that lost to Everton, Burnley, Palace and Spurs.
Their through to 5th round of FA cup but against lower league sides have just got through.
This will be a typical bottom of the league team game, if we breakthrough early then we could be on easy street, if not then they will play out of the skins and raise their game massively. I am more confident them versus Burnley and even Fulham but we will need to match their physicality and rely a lot on Harry in defending set pieces.”

“Please can we have a comfortable win for once?”

“Expect to win this – and should win big. but I said that about West Brom and Watford! We do need to give the goal difference a bit of a boost”

“I’ve not been looking forward to our games as much as I have in the past couple of months. Feels good to have our team back again!”

“Got a rum feeling this might not be the satisfying win we’re all hoping for. I expect we’ll win, but it might be a bit of a slog. Yes, they’re hopeless, but they’re desperate too. And desperate teams tend to show up for games against us which feel like a bit of a ‘free hit’.
Despite proving our mettle with this unbeaten run, it does feel like we need to give someone a thrashing to give certain a players a shot of confidence. It’s been a while since we’ve put in a really good 90 minutes. Hopefully my gut is wrong and we can do that here and score a hatful.”

“As shite as they are, we only squeaked past them in the reverse fixture where they almost grabbed a draw at the end.
We can’t have one eye on Arsenal at the weekend.”

” really like what these boys have brought to the league and it’s a shame they will go down, hope they go down with some dignity and get some points on the board (not Wednesday though).”

“I really rate Jack O’Connell from whenever I watched them play last season.
I seem to remember their form collapsing then when he was injured for a bit too.”

.”I don’t think we’ve played them yet without Jagielka playing”

“Ramsdale has to be the worst keeper that’s ever played in The Premier League”

“So proud, putting the greens truly on the map! Great effort”

“oh well winning this was always slim.”

“Not too bothered really back to L1 survival”

“Unlucky not to equalise in the end Sheffield looked a bit wobbly and as said before very wasteful. Didn’t disgrace ourselves by any means.”

“The most frustrating thing about that second half was that it proved that we could be more than a match for Sheffield United if we had just put them under more pressure. We gave them far too much respect in that first half. Still, a 2-1 defeat is no embarrassment. “

“can’t see Sheffield Utd staying up playing like that. Worrying for their fans”

“If that was a strong Utd side, then they’ll be playing Luton next season.”

“Utd won’t be in the premiership next season.”

“They didnt look like a Prem team, and we didn’t look like a L1 team”

“Good show by Argo as the BBC said not disgraced by any means, as said some of the play by The Blades illustrates why they are marooned at the foot of the table.”

“Great effort we didnt roll over when they went 2-0 up and thats to be credited we made a game of it in the second half which is unsually for us as we tend to fall apart in second halfs. Sheff Utd are going down thats a certainty along with Fulham if thats their strongest 11 its no wonder they are getting tanked week in and out and not scoring.”

“Obvs they had the better players with the Prem big bucks but you could see how fragile their confidence is after we scored our goal.”

“Proud of that performance, didn’t look out of depth really – Sheff U with more bite and more presence in the final third. Cooper and Opoku personal standouts. Ramsdale had a shocker”

“Henderson to Ramsdale a huge huge downgrade for them this season”

“On this game alone, and considering they’re roughly the same age… I think I’d take Cooper over the £18.5m Ramsdale.”

“And Jephcott over Brewster! “

“Just a couple of minutes either side of half time that did us.
We played a full strength premier league team that cost apps 60 odd million pounds and did very well in spells.
I reckon Argyle had as many touches in their box second half as they did ours. And when all’s said and done Sheffield United had a nice long week of rest before the game whilst we had an 800 mile round trip and 90 mins on the Sunderland swamp on Tuesday night.
As for the commentary salivating over Brewster’s performance?! 23 million quid?! You can build hospitals for that much and the guy looked bang average as far as I could see.
Couple of better decisions in their box after we’d scored and we’d be still watching now but overall very very pleased with the performance “

“Aside from the fact that some of their players looked very fit and strong, I am encouraged that Camara, Cooper, Jephcott, Opoku in particular did not look too far of their quality. Agree Cooper looked like the better keeper by a mile”

“Reeves was the best player on the pitch. “

“In hindsight, they must have missed or skyed a bigger percentage of their chances than we did. Definitely a Premiership side in name only. Demonstrates how the distribution of wealth in the game is wrong and so much money is being wasted on mediocrity. “

“Can’t see Sheffield United progressing past Brizzle in the next round.”

“Who other than Chris Wilder or a desperate Sheffield United supporter wants to see an exciting FA cup tie killed off like that? “

“Camara missed a great chance but what about their Prem player who had the ball laid backed to him in the box and drilled the ball straight round the post!! Bad miss for them. Can’t believe VAR didn’t give the penalty either.”

” fair play to Sheffield United professional performance best of luck in the future rounds and for the rest of the PL season”

“it’s the classic combination of a game we probably won’t win against not very interesting opposition a long, long way from home.”

“shame we can’t be with the boys, because beating Sunderland followed by sheffield away would’ve been something else”

“Hopefully an easy route to Round 5. Shame we’re not allowed fans”

“Hopefully an easy route?!! Nothing easy about being away to a premier league side!!”

“Their current form gives us an advantage. Although this is Argyle so even a Conference side can be a challenge for us”

“Couldn’t have asked for much of a better Draw to be honest! Sheffield United winnable then a home draw to a Championship side!”

“Sheffield United are mid table championship club at best based on results and football at the moment! Hello 5th round”

“Perfect chance to get through, I mean they have won once in 6 months and scraped passed rovers in the last round”

“Sheffield United is definitely winnable given how poor they’ve been”

“4th round draw much harder than the 5th round draw!”

“winnable the state there in atm and potentially then a championship side at HP ! Won’t get a better chance to make then 1/4 Final”

“Sheffield United away and then either Millwall or Bristol City gives us a huge chance”

“No doubt Sheffield United wouldn’t want a cup run as bad as they want to stay up? Really struggling in the prem, so a good chance”

“A hard away game for us….but who knows they might play their youth team….but maybe not….they are literally already relegated from the Premiership….so the Cup is there only chance of glory this season. “

“Can’t wait for the greens to plant 7 past Sheffield United on Saturday, allowing Sheffield FC to be recrowned biggest club in Yorkshire”

“Nice free hit on Saturday”

“Mayor masterclass incoming. Will have a lot more freedom in the Sheffield game… won’t be triple marked.”

“I hope Argyle play in their ‘home’ kit on Saturday. Spurs played in the same colours and defeated SU last weekend. I hope that ‘green’ proves as lucky for Argyle as it did for them.”

“I reckon Spurs could have played in skins and beaten SU so doubt green will make a difference.
We will actually still win though. “

“Roy Keane in the Sheffield United v Spurs game (0-2) said “Sheffield United are going down as the worst team ever to play in the Premier League”.
Jus sayin………”

“He’s never watched us
just sayin…..”

“I watched the Spurs game, Argyle will have their hands full with them.”

“for those of you who think a win is unlikely this Saturday can I refer you to 1984 and League One Argyle away to Premier League West Brom in the FA Cup.
A certain Tommy Jephcott scored the only goal of the game which was a typical Tommy Jephcott goal. West Brom were pretty much at full strength for the match and were struggling in the League as I recall. Spooky? Well here’s more.
This game was 27 years ago who has scored nearly 27 goals for Argyle? Yep Luke Tynan.
Also the game in 84 was played at the Hawthorns where do Sheffield United play? Brammall Lane! Hawthorn spikey bush and Brammall sounds a lot like Bramble a spikey bush.
Lump on this one’s written in the stars.”

“It will be the first time that the Pilgrims have played in a game with VAR available.”

“Whatever happens, I’m just looking to winning a pen awarded by VAR”

“First win at Sheff United in 46 YEARS.”

“We got away with it with ndombele worldie & sheffield united being so bad. But obviously this is why we drop points to the better teams.”

“Comfortable win never looked in question bar maybe our customary second half malaise for a spell. Tanguy exceptional, goal was ridiculous. Like him a bit deeper, gets far more involved and put a shift in defensively. Think at times playing higher he isn’t fed the ball enough. Rodon put in a promising shift also. COYS.
Sheffield United are shite, they are not in a false position.”

“Never really got out of 2nd gear but I wonder if we could if we needed to today.”

“Even though we won.. this was so frustrating to watch.”

“It doesn’t make sense to me to be 2-0 up away to an awful Sheff Utd, and to defensive, then at 3-1 just try to kill the game off”

“Lucky we played Sheff Utd today – a better team would have beaten us”

“Against a better team today would have been the same old story.”

“we’re lucky Sheff United were extremely poor on the ball themselves today”

” one win against the worst team in the league doesn’t really excuse the other dropped points against shit teams”

“Let’s not get too carried away: Sheff Utd are the worst team in the Premier League”

“Wrong team, wrong formation, Jose has lost the dressing room”

“That will do but!!! It was sheff utd”

“I know it was only Sheffield but that’s the first game in a while I felt like we were passing with a purpose.”

“Comfy enough vs poor Sheff Utd who – in stark contrast to the harryings they gave us last season – looked barely tougher than Marine last Sunday.”

“Sheffield Utd are rubbish.”

“Sheff Utd are woeful”

“Sheff Utd worked hard; they’re going down fighting”

“We will win.”

“Sheffield United is a heavy set team and I think we could cause damage to their lack of pacey players”

“if Jose or his team are reading, please give us all a fucking massive hard-on and play that side. Just for a laugh. It’s Sheffield f Utd, one of the worst teams in the history of this league FFS.”

“Need Doc and Davies picked to cope with the aerial threat if Sheffield United, similar v Burnley.”

“Sheffield United rarely play the long balls there game is over lapping wingbacks and cbs”

“We must set up to not lose to the mighty Sheffield united. We must worry about their great attacking threat and make sure bergwijn is there to get behind the ball. 5 at the back is a must and if possible put 2 keepers in goal. Then hope kane or son score within 20 minutes then hold on for dear life against one of the most fearsome sides in europe.”

“So we are all over them and go one up in the first half and then we come out in the second half and just. stop. playing.
We let them crawl all over us for 30 minutes and then they score.
Jose is then spurred into action but the game ends 1-1.
There, saved you 90 minutes of your time, you can do something useful instead.”

“Another 1 half performance if we’re lucky. Game Plan: Start shit, after 10minutes start playing. Score. Half time. Second Half: Camp in a low block and try counter. They equalise. Subs. We attack. Game Done. Mourinho: Controlled the game & players at fault”

“Can’t wait to go 1-0 within first 20 and defend for the rest”

“Still can’t believe we got that second against Marine”

“What’s the point 1-0 guaranteed Sheffield United will score late”

“I am nearly at who cares mode.
Team of frauds.”

“Not even arsed anymore. Doesn’t matter who plays we’ll play the same turgid way.”

“Sanchez and Dier clowning around at the back, that’s happening for sure.”

“They’ll be a lot more up for it than we are and two of our worst performances last season were against this club.”

“We lost 3-1 at Bramall Lane with arguably our worst performance of the whole season – and there was pretty stiff competition for that particular accolade.”

“I think Sheffield is a lost cause this season”

“A new low.”

“Hahaha we actually lost”

“Totally deserved”

“Sheffield United deserved winners.”

“We got exactly what we deserved from that game”

“Comprehensively and thoroughly outplayed by a team without a win to their name in 19 games. Atrocious.”

“Completely outplayed by the worst team in Prem history.”

“We got taught a football lesson by the worst team in Premier League history.”

“Absolutely pathetic performance. Again. But this was even worse, and against the worst team in the league.”

“It’s ok, we’re still better than sheff United. Oh, wait..”

“Played lads, nobody predicted that. Nobody.”

“Its not even an exaggeration, that’s the worst Newcastle have performed in years, even before McClaren.”

“That’s up there with the worst display I’ve ever seen.”

“We play against a team that hasn’t won a single game this season. Yet we play 5 at the back and has no interest of attack or even try to score a goal. Just try to get the opposition not to score a goal and be happy with a point.”

“I listened to this on the radio and it was still painful to watch. “

“The reason sheff United were much the better team was because of how s**** we are. Nothing to do with them being amazing.”

“Sheff Utd made hard work of that”

“It’s like I’m angry but I don’t care at the same time. The Championship should be fun.. our only saving grace is West Brom & Sheffield United look worse than us”

“I don’t give a **** about the red, we were horrifc even before it.
I won’t let that maggot hide behind a red card”

“Fernandez is clearly swiping it. It’s harsh but consistent with the current rules.”

“I agree that Fernandez clearly swiped it. My contention would be that Fernandez had his shoulder in front of their player the whole time and prior to him moving his arm towards the ball their player clearly pulled at his shirt. If it was the other way (Fernandez was the attacking player) they could well have reviewed it and declared it a penalty in his favour. “

“Sharp fouled him for about 10 yards man, he was dragging his shirt all over.”

“Annoying that a second rate referee can’t see Schar was fouled (shirt pulled) before the handball especially as he reviewed it and therefore not a penalty. And Sharp should have been off for a studs tackle on Schar. Lucky we have VAR to make sure these decisions are the right ones.”

“Can’t wait to hear Bruce throw out the “no excuses, terrible performance, brush ourselves down and have to do better” s**** before he then says it was never a penalty and Sharp should have been sent off to try and brush his absolute ineptitude under the rug for another week. He is getting the biggest free ride with no fans in attendance. He would be getting mauled as much as our players do every game.
It wasn’t the pathetic play, the demoralised players, the ultra defensive set up with no interest in attacking the 2nd worst team in the league. It wasn’t the fact the mental advantage was given to them by building them up as Man City ahead of the game. It simply Bruce and Ashley again for hiring him. Will he pay compensation, bother at all if he thinks the takeover might happen or maybe he can cotton on to the fact hiring someone new might kick up enough commotion so we don’t spend another penny in the transfer market this month. Either way we got beat by the 2nd worst team in the league because Bruce makes us play like the worst team in the league. If there isn’t a manager change we will soon be the worst team not in the premier league.”

“The tactic of allowing Sheffield United to play their way into form is an intriguing one”

“Happier for Sheff United to get their win, than disappointed in us losing.
Actually laughed when they scored. Just completely numb of any anger with this stinking streak of detritus in charge.”

“Sheffield United have just won their first game in 18 attempts tonight and I’d swap managers with them in a heartbeat. That’s how turboshit this obese cockend is”

“The truth is that far from the sending off being an excuse for Bruce, it was partly his fault. If we hadn’t came and set up so negatively it’s likely we wouldn’t have needed to be so desperately chasing the bottom team around the pitch giving away free kicks, yellow cards and red cards.”

“Steve bruce wearing a top with fun on is the most inappropriate thing since Fred west submitted an application to the council for a patio extension”

“I am currently writing to my local MP”

“i’d honestly take a punt on joey barton.
if for no other reason than he might put some cigars out in ashley’s eyes.”

“Steve: “How’s the bacon did ya say?”

“Fourth round could have been a lot worse. Potentially one for MOTD live. Fifth round is very crap.”

“Blimey if we beat a crap Premier Club in Sheffield United we get another crap club in Millwall or Bristol City. However as any of these are beatable we may be on our best cup run for donkey years.”

“Got a Premier League side that is strangely winnable, then a home game against a winnable-ish Championship side.”

“I reckon it’s a winnable tie, Sheffield Utd. After that we’d have to be at our best, but it’s not completely unthinkable!”

“two winnable (ish) draws there I reckon. Though I wouldn’t fancy Bristol City.”

“Possibly into the quarter final draw”

“Sheffield United, not a bad draw, it could have been a lot tougher. I think on current form this is winnable.”

“Maybe they will put the kids out and we actually turn up for an away match, stranger thing have happened, but it’s a shit draw.”

“Sheffield Utd will probably see a clear route to the quarters there. But come the day I think we have the best chance of the ‘davids’ who have been drawn against ‘goliaths’.
Come the day the pressure will be massively on them and their manager. If they continue to lose could he possibly have to beat us to preserve himself??”

“Given Sheffield are looking doomed in the prem, they could either:
a. Field a weakened team and hope the first teamers can sav them; or
b. Field a strong team knowing this is their only hope at winning some games and keeping th supporters happy.
I fear the latter is most likely.”

“I reckon it’s winnable whatever side they put out, bearing in mind their current position.”

“when we draw the shittest premiership team ever putting aside their run last season that’s not going to draw the money from tv revenues that make up the loss we will make from no fans attending or merchandised sold”

“Away to a prem team albeit a shit one is ok plus in with a slight chance of winning.”

“Prem but not glamour… upset given their form?”

“Eminently beatable given current form. 2 points! If we’re firing on all cylinders we could beat them.”

“They could be very short on confidence at the moment looking at their league position.”

“The Blades have only beaten Bristol Rovers all season”

“Sheffield’s a great day out on the razz. Oh, hang on! FFS.”
