Roy’s End Of Season Awards

A look back at some of the brilliant, beautiful and bitter comments from the past season.

Most arrogant fans: WEST BROM

(Last years winner: Brentford)

They certainly weren’t alone but The Baggies fans fell into the trap of believing their club would better The Blades mainly due to the fact our squad didn’t contain as many big name players as theirs:

” if we have a pretty full strength then I think we should win, however our home form has been terrible and we’ll need to find a way to break them down. If they play gung-ho against us, I think we’ll beat them, bit like the Leeds game.”

“no disrespect to these but come on this should be targeted as a win. i cant think of one of their players who would get into our team. its time for our players and coaching staff to give us a performance that stands out”

“none of their players would get in our best 11. They are punching miles above their weight this season, I’ve never considered them a serious threat to the top 2. Fail to beat these on Saturday and Norwich and Leeds have the automatics in the bag.”

“we should have enough to beat these,with Murphy and Harper improving and Gayle and Phillips back,it will be the usual stupid short passing at the back and in midfield going astray making us own worst enemy that is our biggest problem,maybe at home we need to let the opposition have more of the ball and hit them on the break,rather than us having to attack them.”

“Tell you what, the users on the Sheffield United forum are overly confident aren’t they? Incredible stuff. One thinks they’ve got the best strikers in the League, that’ll be Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick, Gary Madine and Scott Hogan? Ermm no mate. Most think they’ll beat us easily on Saturday, I’m dumbfounded.”

“If we play to our best and Sheffield United play to their best we will beat them comfortably”

“Can’t wait to stuff them on Saturday and then see what they say!”

“No reason why we can’t put 4 or 5 past them”

After the game, their opinions had somewhat changed…

“Come up against a decent side and we’re found wanting again”

“Won’t see a more comfortable 1-0 than that. Schooled. “

“Sheffield United were the better side and probably deserved to win. Disgraceful from Rodriguez to be honest, that’s not the way we should be playing. Though if he scored it’d be a different story, I can guarantee that!”
“Got beat by a team with a better game plan”

“Sheff Utd just about deserved it. Our key players not on the top of their game. Not enough quality in final third, too slow build up.”

“Sheff Utd played well, defended resolutely first to the ball and kept it in possession.”

“It was a test to see where we really are in terms of promotion and the evidence suggests we will fall short of automatic as SU were just too good for us today”

“Wilders plan worked perfectly..could have stayed out for another hour and we still wouldn’t have scored”

“Sheffield United deserve credit, they did their homework on us and it paid off “

“Fair play Sheff Utd. Best team I’ve seen this season. Shut us completely down”

“credit to sheff utd took their chance look a decent side”

“sheff Utd so much better than us tonight,didn’t deserve anything”

Sheff utd did to us what we did to stoke a couple of weeks back…….perfect away performance from them.”

“Credit to Sheff Utd, thought they played really well, good football, good movement and a yard quicker in every position. “

Some though still were not convinced by United..

“Can’t see past Norwich and Leeds walking it now.”

“sheffield united arent a particularly goods side nor for a minute do i think they will go up but they wanted it more than us”

“We made a good well organised championship team look better than they are really but again not surprised. Just scratching my head”

Sheff Utd are hard working but ain’t world beaters. “

“Regards Sheffield United I thought they were a functional side nothing more, still expect to finish comfortably above them,  and would be more than happy to meet them in the play offs if we don’t make top 2.”

“Even in defeat you can see that we have the better team”

“We dominated just didn’t take our chances. Still think we’ll win the league”

Most Respectful Fans: BLACKBURN ROVERS

(Last years winner: Derby)

United did the double over Rovers, scoring 5 and conceding 0 in the process., but that doesn’t always mean the opposition will give you respect. The Blackburn fans though were extremely complimenary of United after The Blades 2-0 win at Ewood Park in October:

“Fair play to Sheff Utd tonight, they were much sharper than us, organised and stopped us from playing. Best side I’ve seen so far this season.”

“Best side I’ve seen at Ewood in over a year, can’t lie we played dreadful but can’t take that away from Sheff Utd.”

“Best side too have come to Ewood this season for me. They controlled the game and out classed and out played them. Too say Forest have spent a bit this summer, Sheff United are twice the team they are. We never looked like breaking them down. Dack was a no show, Graham had no service and when he did win a header they were first too every ball. The same when one of our centre halves won a header, they were always first to the second ball. It just shows you can be successful in this league without splashing the cash”

“best side I seen play against us this year.”

“can see why sheff united are up there near the top, they look really good”

“Beaten by a team we aspire to follow in the footsteps of. Well done to Sheff Utd. We go again”

“first lesson of the season. Out classed.”

“Out of our depth against a excellent footballing side. It was almost as if the players gave up due to lack of ability.”

“Outclassed, outplayed and we looked a league lower.”

“first time this season were we havent at least dominated half of the game.sheffutd decent side though”

“Very impressed with Sheff U. No shame in losing to a team that has just gone top of the league.”

“Well beaten by a far superior side.”

“we are a newly promoted side and the side we played, last season set the standard for newly promoted sides. That’s what we should be aiming for”

“We were beaten by a better drilled, stronger, fitter side.”

“Very poor tonight. Sheff Utd very hard to break down.”

Sheff Utd defence impressive”

Sheff Utd well organised albeit fortunate with their goals but deserved to win from all round play.”

“O’Connell is a beast. Did he really go on a free?”

“Letting O’Connell go and on a free was criminal. It was obvious he was gOod enough back then”

“Billy sharp showing exatly the type of striker we need for this league”

And when United beat the Lancashire club 3-0 at Bramall Lane in December, the Blackburn faithful were just as respectful as two months previous…

” On the plus side, we don’t have to play Sheffield Utd again in the league this season.. “

“Sheff utd were one of my picks to go up this season – and nothing I saw today changed my mind. And honestly, I hope they do go up. Just because if we’re gonna get dicked 3-0, at least it was to a team that got promoted…”

” At the end of the day, we’ve just played the top two in the Championship and the best team to visit Ewood this season. It was always gonna be tough. “

“They are top of the league for a reason”

” If Ben Brereton is worth £7 Million then what is Billy Sharp worth? A quality striker and the difference today. “

” Sure as the sun sets. Sharp scores”

” The one quality striker on the pitch and he makes the difference. What do we do leave our best striker on the bench, start the dud Brereton and are now playing without a striker.”

Funniest Fans: SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY

(Last years winner: Millwall)

There have been many funny moments on the View From this season. From a Bolton fan shitting in a sink to Leon Clarke being disparagingly labelled ‘Jurassic Clarke’ by Wigan fans but none of them come close to the Pre- Season predictions of Sheffield Wednesday fans. Find the full set of these ill-judged forecasts in the link below.
https://roysviewfrom.com/2019/03/20/loan-updates-6/

Mardiest Fans: NORWICH CITY

(Last years winner: Norwich City)

The first team to retain their award this season is Norwich City. Despite being promoted the Norwich supporters still seem very easy to upset as shown after United’s 2-1 victory over the Canaries at Bramall Lane way back in August. Back then manager Daniel Farke wasn’t quite as revered as he is now….

“We need a new coach”

“Let’s stop farke in about and get a manager that knows how to get out of this league”

“he has no clue, we are going down unless he goes back to the 4th tier of german football where he belongs.”

“3 wins in 19 daniel not good”

Farke wasn’t the only one in the firing line…

“And Sheffield are a Shite side too !! Can’t even beat them FFS !!!”

“We can’t even beat Sheffield United shocking”

“Wilder shouldnt flatter himself ….he obviously has a bigger problem with us than we do with them. ..sheff utd always have been and will be an irrelevance”

“are more obsessed about beating us than the scum are. Know which Sheffield team I’d rather support”

“How on earth did we not get Woodburn from Liverpool given the Dortmund link and the better football philosophy compared to Sheff Utd”

“A message to Sheffield United. YOU ARE DISGUSTING! To hear you’ve chased my friend and his group down the road and glass another fan? Hang your heads in shame”

“Form is temporary, class is permanent. Sheffield fans who glassed a Norwich fan hang your heads in shame. Horrible club”

“Absolutely vile club”

“Must say I’m never going to bramall lane every again”

By the time the teams met again in January, Norwich were top of the league and Farke a hero. The Blades too were in the promotion mix and a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road seemed a fair result but once again the Norwich fans were not happy…

“That’s a sickener.  Particularly considering the differing quality of football played by the two sides. “

“For all the talk of Sheff Utd not being cloggers and playing football, they did nothing except hoof it at Madine and kick us. “

“Sheff Utd are bunch of knobheads – those who said they weren’t cloggers clearly don’t know what they’re talking about. Basham in particular is a c-un-t. We scored two great goals playing proper football on the plus side. Another ref with no consistency whatsoever. Let the game flow which was a plus but booked Zimmermann for the same tackle Sheff Utd players had already made 4 or 5 times, and let them kick us off the park with late tackles and leaving the foot in.”

“Strange one. Sheff Utd acting like they’ve won the league when they’ve got a point which keeps them 3 points below us?!
weird bunch.”
“Strange mentality to be happy with a point when they could’ve won it. A win puts them above us but happy to settle for a draw. Not sure about that myself “

They weren’t finished yet. When Chris Wilder was voted LMA manager of the year, the Norwich fans were once again up in arms…

“Sooo, Chris Wilder gets championship manager of the year. Well here’s a message from me to all who voted for him over Farke and to all who consistently ignore #NCFC fabulous achievements this season. YOU CAN ALL FUCK OFF. That’s all. Goodnight.”

“Means more to Wilder. Farke has the trophy he wanted ”

“Wilder had momentum from league 1 promotion, Farke was in the 4th tier in Germany then”

“Shocking bias. Farke managed his side on next to no money and dragged the club from mediocrity to playing splendid football.”

“He’s failed everywhere but blades!”

“Farke inherited a squad full of over the hill players who were hugely overpaid… he’s had a much harder job than wilder”

“We won the league and they didn’t. Farke is better than Wilder and will go on to do bigger and better things than him, with or without Norwich”

Funny how opinions change isn’t it?

Most Knowledgeable Fans: HUDDERSFIELD TOWN

(Last years winner: Brighton)

Whilst many Blades were underwhelmed by the signing of Martin Cranie, Huddersfield fans were telling us exactly the sort of player we had just purchased. In fact their views were ours just 6 months later!

“Good solid pro, hope it works out for him.”

“Played his part in some great times when called on. A good solid pro”

“Lot of respect for him, always been dependable even though he never got much of a chance in the first team.”

“Solid player without doing anything spectacular, did a good job for hs.”

“Really liked Cranie – what a good free signing and servant.”

“I don’t recall him ever letting us down when called upon. I always liked Cranie and was sad to see him go.”

“Good Luck to him, never let us down.”

“I always respected Martin Cranie whilst he was at Town – never a superstar but gave his best every time he was called on and never let us down. Best of luck for your future, Martin.”

“I also like Martin Cranie, a solid pro who did a good job for us when called upon. I personally think alongside Schindler he could still do a job for us if required.”

“When Tommy Smith went off injured at Wembley and Cranie came on, I was unconcerned because I knew he would do a solid, professional job for the remainder of the match. In the club’s biggest game in living memory. With £100m at stake. In a tight 0-0 scoreline. That is all.”

“a solid pro for us, never a regular first team player, but he did a job for us whenever called upon. And didn’t let us down. Good luck for the future Martin.”

Most Depressed Fans: MIDDLESBROUGH

(Last years winner: Ipswich)

Swansea didn’t fancy their chances on the first day and Stoke were reeling from a woeful season but by the time ‘Boro came to Bramall Lane in February their fans had well and truly had enough of “Pulis-Ball”:

“Absolutely outplayed in every department!! Pulis needs to go!! Even if it’s another year in the championship? Football is basic, boring.”

“GET HIM OUT. All the way to Sheffield for another half arsed performance.”

“Don’t dress it up a 13 man Pullis team would of got beat with his tactics and no sticker on the pitch….. Yes I mean NO STRIKER. lumping around does not qualify for this role. Boro lad or not. In fact I bet at least a dozen Boro lads in the crowd tonight are better than Hughill”

“Totally fucking schooled in that Second Half tonight. We play like a Pulis side but we don’t often show the character & savvy of a Pulis team.”

“They made an attacking sub and by some sort of miracle do more going forward, scoring within 15 minutes. Who would have thought!!?
Theres a lesson to be learnt there Tony, but you will never understand.”

We the most boring team to watch in the league”

“We are a horrible, horrible side to watch, it would be a travesty if this team went up playing this negative boring football and with this dinosaur in charge.”

“Lovely stuff. Particularly enjoyed them 4 consecutive throw ins down the right.”

The “We Didn’t Know You Cared So Much” Award: HULL CITY

(Last years winner: Hull City)

The last award sees Hull City once again take first prize. Will anybody truly know why they hate us so much?

“Those of a certain age will dislike them as much as I do , will be tough but here’s hoping for a decent win.. the fact our home record is so strong is promising”

“I hate them. I hate them more than I hate Leeds, and would love to **** them over on Monday.”

“They have always been w*****s ,..made even worse by their new found big time persona despite playing in no mans land for **** knows how many years”

“I hate Sheff U with a passion with their aloof and arrogant fans, worked in Leeds for many years and have more friends there than in Hull so although I don’t particularly want Leeds promoted I would much rather them than the c(bl)unts any day”

“If there’s anything worse than Sheffield U itself , it’s their fans. It would make my week to thrash them tomorrow.”

“I think I now slightly favour the vermin over sheffield.
I was thinking earlier which sheffield player I have disliked most over the years, the one that most epitomises the boastful cockiness of these ****s. The list is a lengthy one:-
Alan Woodward- unsmiling grey haired s y ****
Len Badger- dirty thuggish defender
Paddy Kenny- utter **** of a human being, goads fans then retreats as they get nicked
Billy Sharp- archetypal cocky bluntsman, proper badge kisser
Geoff Salmon- had some verbals with this **** in the Anglo Scottish in 1980?
Colin Morris- another old bastard like Woodward mark2
Keith Edwards- guaranteed to score against us, even if he was guaranteed for us against them.
Chris Morgan- archetypal bluntsman dirty ****, Warnock disciple
Bob Hatton- how did he escape ? How come he ended playing for them of all teams?”

“Edwards was a dirty sod as well by the way, lot of off the ball stuff. But look no further than their current manager for unfavourable traits, always mardy always moaning away to the 4th official when they’ve been on sky and things don’t go his way ,…proper bellend, i can see why the blunts like him he reminds me of that twat Warnock.”

“My dislike for Sheff U is greater than my dislike of TWS but I think there’s more chance of The Blunts coming straight back down and for that reason I would prefer them to go up before Leeds”

“I dislike SU more than TWS but hope SU go up as they have more chance of coming straight back down.”

“The danger is that sheffield would spend the money wisely, take a relegation and then go again. They yoyo between the divisions, don’t need these ****s to go up.”

“Can’t stand either of them, so it would be ****ing hilarious IF they both lost 2 and drew 1 of their games and west brom won all 3 of theirs”

Here’s to next season!

View From Leeds……

This is not something I usually do but after huge pressure (about 8 requests) I succumbed to the demand. Here are some of the more tormented comments from Leeds United fans following their failure to secure promotion…..


“They’ve won promotion but yet still talk about Leeds. Obsessed.”

“Absolute respect for Wilder’s achievement at a professional level but his behaviour and that of some his squad has revealed some pretty small time insecurity. “

“Remember Bielsa defending Henderson after his howler at Bramall Lane when everyone else was taking the piss,strange how Henderson/Wilder r now quick to stick the boot in on Bielsas achievements now.Prem club with a small club mentality.”

“It always comes back to bite you in the arse, that kind of bullshit. I’ve plenty of friends from the right side of Sheffield and don’t wish them ill next year, but I might take a look at the chop odds for next season’s PL managers…”

“The whole filming of them partying and carrying on at Bramall Lane looked very chavvy and classless plus the drunken interviews left a lot to be desired especially when he dwells on Leeds rather than his own team and their merits and achievements.”

“Screw Chris wilder. I can’t stand him or his squad of players. They play a shit house style of football. And it’s only through our fuck ups that they are there. It should be us. If we weren’t so Leeds at times it would be.”

“It’s particularly galling in the case of the bacon wearing, rapist supporting, victim blaming, shoe waving, litigious, hypocritical cry babies that are Sheffield United.  It’s not even as if they’ve been well run as a club, signed or produced any decent players, or have a decent fan base. What is the point of them in the Premier League, seriously!”

“The blunts will come a cropper amongst the elite”

“I hate and despise the club and all it stands for….always have done. Tin pot club. Awful fans.”

“Relegated by February.”

“Wilder will find out the HARD way next season, he can gob off all he wants now but they are gonna need a miracle to stay up “What Norwich and Sheff utd don’t have is 46 cup finals like Leeds have. They don’t have teams raising their game against them like Leeds. They haven’t had an injury crisis like Leeds have had all season. “

“I’ve been staggered at the number of Norwich & Sheffield Utd fans I’ve seen slagging Leeds. If we’d held or nerve and managed automatic promotion I wouldn’t give a damn about any other team. Strange”

“They’ll come straight back down after the manner of Cardiff; just a collection of aging journeymen who’ve over achieved. Are McCabe and Prince Gazillions still suing each other? Can’t see them investing enough to make a go of it. It’ll give their fans something else to have a greasy chip butty on each shoulder about though, as they inevitably slide back to their natural home in league one.”

“Norwich and Sheff United both promoted but what’s everyone talking about? Leeds vs Villa.. There’s a energy around this club that people are envious of”

“I’d rather be in the Championship forever than support a shit club like Norwich with their shit, inbred fans in a virtually silent stadium despite them being just over 20 minutes away from the Premier League! Imagine Elland Road..”

“2 teams promoted from the Championship and the main talking point was Leeds. Easily the biggest club in this league”

“Fulham played pretty football, some pundits claimed it was the best ever in championship, spent £100m and couldnt stay up. Can’t see overlapping centre backs and Billy Sharp getting on well in Prem. Even teams like Burnley will have a field day vs Blades”

“Only bottlers will be sheff utd next season when they are relegated and embarrassed to themselves”

The Pre-Season Predictions Of Sheffield Wednesday Fans For The 2018/2019 Season

At the end of last season I posted a collection of pre-season predictions made by Sheffield Wednesday fans. None of them came to fruition as United finished 12 points in front of the Owls, taking 4 points off them in the process. With their predictions being so woefully incorrect last season, maybe this time they would be less confident? Maybe this time they would be more measured? Maybe even give United more respect?

Or maybe not…….

Here are a collection of quotes posted on Owlstalk from May 2018-July 2018. Ladies and Gentlemen, enjoy….

“Seriously, I can see us running away with the title this time around and I’ll tell you exactly why.
We have the desire back, the players want to make it happen. They have belief in the new manager.
More than anything else, confidence and desire are what you need to win a title. We have some of the quality players we need.“

“Over the past 8 weeks we have had a few key players back in Fernando, Barry bannan, Tom Lees and Jack hunt.  Without looking at the stats I believe our form during this period is up in the top 6 easily.  I think that says all you need to know about what this current side is capable of. “

“No team will finish above us next season”

“Not sure about winning the league but we will be promoted next season.”

“If Villa are still in the division, they are the only side I would worry about. Everyone else, I think we could (and should) thrash.
Look at the quality we have, that has been badly mismanaged by Carlos. For two seasons we almost managed to go up, despite the (second season mostly) sterile sideways tippy-tappy football. Jos has us playing much better, attacking, confident football. We are going straight up, and I’ll be putting my money where my mouth is.”

“Top 6 should probably be the aim for me, top 2 not out of reach”

“I’m pretty confident as things stand. I’d only really fancy Stoke, WestBrom and Boro to fare better than us at the minute.
Imo I think Derby and Villa will struggle to better this season, Preston, Pigs and Millwall won’t punch above their weight again. Swansea won’t trouble the playoffs
All in all nothing to fear”

“The pig’s had a fantastic season, we’ve had a truely awful one, and in the end there’s not an awful lot to choose between. We know we can improve. Can they?  You’d suggest without investment they won’t. 2nd season and all that.We’ve been decimated by injuries all season. They lost one player and a keeper.Looking forward to next season. Enjoy the Summer folks.”

“Competing at the top- Will be West Brom, Stoke, Potentially Swansea, The three sides in the playoffs who don’t go up, Us, Potentially Brentford, Preston, maybe Birmingham under Monk or Norwich.
Competing at the bottom- Bolton, Wigan, Whoever goes up through playoffs in L1, Sheffield United”

“It’s going to be a long season for both of us, it’s bragging rights between who’s going to finish 13th or 14th.”

“Pigs finishing above us? not a chance”.

“I expect us to finish above Leeds and The Pigs”

“We’ll finish 12th and they’ll finish 19th. Wilder will leave mid season”

“They’re all obsessed with us so will grunt in agreement with Wilder and their wont be any questions as to why they’re in for a season of hanging around the middle of the table.”

“I’ll give Wilder is dues, he’s certainly got the knack for getting mediocre players to perform to levels you wouldn’t think them capable of. However, while last season that proved enough to surprise a lot of people, I don’t think their current crop of players, nor the ones they seem to be looking to add, will ever get a team promoted.”

“I saw enough at the end of last season to know United will struggle this season”

“I don’t really fancy their chances either. They have a lower end championship squad and it will show unless they make any significant changes to their squad.”



“They literally don’t have one single player who would get in our first 11 or bench when fully fit. The two things that stopped us last season were CC completely losing the plot and the mountain of injuries, neither will be an issue next season”

“A realistic Sheffield X

 Westwood

Lees

O’Connell

Pudil

 Hunt

Bannan

Fleck

Reach

Forestieri

Nuhiu

Hooper

I count that as Wednesday 9, United 2.”

“Fleck ahead of Hutch and Lee after 1 good season at this level?I don’t think so. Hutch and Lee are both far better players than Fleck. ”

“If they sold Coutsy they’d be screwed as last season has shown”

“They keep going on about us not being able to strengthen. They don’t seem to realise that we don’t need new players, we just need to get all the players we already have back out on the pitch, instead of in the physio room “

“Forestieri alone is worth more than Sheffield United”

“I can’t wait to see him rip the pigs apart this season”

“I expect us to finish higher than them, because I expect us to be able to keep far more of our players fit this season than we did last season, and it’s as simple as that for me; compare the two squads when fully fit and ours is clearly superior to theirs. Maybe when we play them again they’ll beat us on pashun – but maybe not – if nothing else, I’d like to think our players will be ready for them and ready for revenge this time around. And in any case, I’m confident we’ll have the better season overall. “

“I wish it was the start of the season tomorrow I can’t wait to ram their boasts down their throats!”

“I said to my dad after they beat us, that they have peaked. A game or two later they did just that….. I suspect next season will be even worse for them.”

“Confident the natural  order will be restored next season,  the best they can hope for is putting on a performance when they play us in their ‘cup finals’ and avoiding relegation.”

“Millwall massively over achieved last season and I can’t see them doing as well again along with pigs.”

“They are on the decline”

“They probably think they will go up!”

“Way they ended last season suggests they won’t be doing as well next.”

“They need 4 new strikers at the Gary Madine level to stay in the too half of the table. They need to spend spend spend and it ain’t going to happen. As Wilder knows all too well”

“Their attacking options are still poo . How old is Billy sharp now? No way will they score enough to finish higher than mid table. ”

“Bias a side, genuinely think they’ll regress. They’re not gonna have millions to spend and there’s only so much you can get out of Billy Sharp and Leon Clarke in the purple patch of his career.”

“They know our squad is miles ahead of theirs & if they stay fit normal service will be resumed next season & they will be fighting a relegation battle with toy town.”

“down – pigs,Ipswich and toy town”

“With Wilder 16th-20th. Without Wilder 19th-23rd. They will probably get enough points at home to stay up, however, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did drop.” 

“we did what we could with a reserve team, and they over achieved, we will win promotion, they will be lucky to stay up and one way or another wilder will be gone by jan”

“Absolutely.If they carry on their mid season slump from Jan into the first half of Next Season,Then it won’t be a complete surprise to find them in the bottom 5/6 of the Championship and quite possibly Chris Wilder being given the boot”

“Grunts are heading for the trap door next season..that’s why wider wants out..he knows this was his big chance and they bottled it”

“Am I the only one who thinks Wilder’s departure will be good for United? You can’t argue that he’s a successful manager (Utd, Northampton, not sure about pre-Northampton) but it seems to be based on a style of average/decent players with a good attitude (not sure how Leon fit in there) based on work ethic, team spirit, “passion” if you like. This combination, even with one or two good players can get you out of league one and, with the momentum of promotion, give you a good go in the championship. But the championship is full of quality players, and before too long quality beats passion, as we’ve seen.So, with Wilder still at Utd, I think their second half dip will extend next season.”

“I just don’t know how the Blades fans aren’t seeing what’s really happening here.Wilder knows he’s taken them as far as he can, the rot has set in, and they need major investment to progress…which isn’t coming”

“They’re brilliant aren’t they. First chance in donkeys years to get their snouts in front of us and they manage to shoot themselves in both trotters. Fookinpriceless “

“Wilder knows this was their one season do do literally anything. Now, as the last half of the season proved the buzz from winning league one has gone, teams worked them out, and unless McSue and the Bog Roll Prince cough up serious cash its relegation battles and nothing else. Even Wilders worked this out, for all hes “one of our own” and has the “pashun” . Burton did 2 seasons with minimal money, Pigs, Bolton, if they don’t get investment they are faced with league one”

“It’s as though the last three months of the season never happened.If we both carry on where we left off, we’ll be top six, they’ll be bottom four.”

“It’s only going to end sour there. No doubt about it they’ve still had a great season, but you can guarantee it’ll be very different come August.”

“I love the fact they have this new found arrogance after finishing above us 1 season out of the last 7, completely ignoring the fact that after they got found out at Christmas their form fell off a cliff edge but naturally they’re going to finish above us again next season. Us on the other hand don’t have many (if any) players who’d make their best 11 even though the group of players we have at Hillsborough just 12 months ago got 81 points at this level and after welcoming back Lees, Bannan and Forestieri took us on a run of form that took us near the top of the form table over the last 10 matches. Keep it up grunters, if there is one thing that’ll amuse me over Pre-Season it’s the piganomics coming from the red and white third of the City”

“I have a feeling their predictions could come back to bite them on the bum later in the season.”

Roy’s End Of Season Awards

 

I started the idea of “The View From” back in United’s first season in League One. With the clubs continual failure to escape from the third tier I became quite familiar with forums and message boards for clubs such as Oldham, Walsall and Gillingham. Traits of clubs soon emerged and by the time of our eventual promotion I knew what to expect from each set of fans.

The championship offered a chance for me to get an impression of a whole new set of fans. Some things surprised me, other’s not so much. Here I present my findings and offer my own personal awards.

Most Arrogant Fans

Brentford

Wednesday are banned from this category as it would be unfair on the others but just for a laugh here were their views just before the first derby:

Never been so confident ahead of a derby , lets be right there now saying there the favourites because Paul Couts ( who ? ) Billy Sharpe and Leon Clark might be fit , now fucking forgive me but I hardly thing our back four are losing any sleep worrying about that , apparently they play attractive football ! I would be more worried If the usual bunch of cloggers turned up we will batter them no problem”

if billys not fit that means they could be depending on Leon Clarke.
panic over then……. “

They honestly think we’re bricking it over Coutts and Fleck? In fact they probably think we’re bricking it over their entire team. Of course they can win on Sunday, it’s like any match in the championship, you have to be at it to pick up points but I genuinely believe the experience we have will give us the edge on the day and in Wallace and Fletcher in particular we have players who generally perform in the games that matter the most.”

I think that ‘pashun’ could overspill and if the ref is on it I can see them being reduced to 10 men in the first half. I believe we have too much for them in particularly in terms of movement of the ball. If Hooper is on form I can see us smashing them 4-0 or 4-1. “

The way CC, Lees & SWFC have conducted themselves before the game is absolutely fantastic, calm, composed with a clear message. They all seem very focussed. They know how much it means to all of us, and are not been dragged into a war of words with the tin pot brigade at the other side of the city. We haven’t look rattled at all, with the mind games & sideswipes from Wilder and the rest of their brigade. This is the reason I think we will win, our players have to much class, quality & experience, and know the end goal.  Wilder IMO will be riling up there players all week, as a do or die sort of game, to the point were I think they will lose focus, discipline and overall the game as they won’t be able to compete with quality.  Lets not forget CC has managed in some big derbies before like Besitkas, Sporting. He is keeping his cool, unlike Wilder whose lack of experience in big sell out games is starting to get to him, to me he is like a rabbit in the headlights trying to please the fans at every twist and turn, but forgetting the real goal at the end of the day . my god I hope we wipe the floor with them, just to shut the, up “

With Wednesday out of the equation the award goes to BRENTFORD who on the first day delivered us these gems:

Sheffield U will not handle the step up in class from L1 and the boys know how important it is to get early points like Huddersfield did last season – here’s hoping anyway!”

I feel that Brentford have too much quality in their squad for the Blades to match them, and Wilder needs to evolve his side from League One winners to Championship competitors if he is to challenge the Bees on the opening day of the season.”

Sheff utd won’t know what hit them – bees will be 3 up by halftime”

I think they’ll get hammered. I doubt too many Clubs will be able to cope with our passing, pressing and movement this season.
As ever our own downfalls will be caused by silly, preventable and sloppy mistakes at the back and not by anything the opposition will do. With that caveat in place and assuming we play to our potential, Sheffield are in for a nasty welcome to the Championship.”

Sheff Utd have clearly been on an excellent run, but I do think the top half of the Championship is a way away from the top half of League One”.

Even in the return fixture when United were above them in the table their fans has little respect for The Blades

We’re a much better side and they’re on the slide. “

“I think we’ll be bang up for this one and they’re no great shakes”

United ended up finishing on the same points and The Bees as took 4 points off them.

Most Respectful Fans

Derby County

United outplayed The Rams on both their meetings this season but that isn’t always enough to gain praise from rival fans. The phrases “They were crap but we were worse” or “They were there for the taking” are often seen after a good performance from The Blades. Derby though took their defeat at The Lane with genuine grace:

A team with over paid and over rated players v a team that works hard and is probably under rated.”

Same old same old,another season same problem cant do the basics against organised teams”

players on half the derby wages wanting the ball and win more”

Sheff Utd: Workman like. Team performance. Determination. Desire.”

We play a half decent side and get beat. Simple. No cutting edge in front of goal. We have for a couple of seasons now.” 

Paul Coutts ran the show, rejected him about 4 seasons ago. Going backwards.”

Schooled by Coutts and Freeman, nice one Derby”

Coutts named MOM ran the midfield against ours that cost us around 8 million… that’s gonna take me some time to get over”

The praise for The Blades was even greater after the 1-1 draw at Pride Park on New Years Day:

Sheffield United looked like a good side. Based on today, I’d say they’re still a good bet to finish in the top six and I’m not really sure why or how their form has dropped off and they’ve lost to some of the teams they have. For us, we looked tired. That’s not an excuse, there’s no reason why we should have been any more tired than Sheffield United. Their style is a game we could have thrived under and not many teams come to PP and play the way they did, but for whatever reason it just didn’t work today. In wider context, it’s a very good point. We could easily have lost that. They scored from probably their only clear chance of the game but they always looked capable of creating something every time they came forward”

Sheffield United were fantastic at times, best side I’ve watched home and away this season”

Fair play to Sheffield United, come to a tough place, should’ve got the win and the fans were in full voice throughout the 90 minutes.”

Sheff Utd did better than I expected. They either played out of their skins or they have had some real bad results lately.”

Credit where it’s due. Sheffield United are a good teambeen the better team in both games against us this season. Like how they use the 3-5-2 to attack rather than sit back” “Didn’t deserve a point at all, they were a lot better than us all over the pitch.” “Sometimes certain teams just have the measure of you and the Blades are one of those teams against us right now. So, all things being considered I don’t think that’s a bad point. We weren’t good and to my mind they looked the better team.”

Sheff Utd plays well I thought; pinned us back with power and strength and I’ve not seen our centre halves get less success in the air all season, although with the amount of set pieces they had I thought they coped well.”

Sheff Utd looked good today tbf, had a lot more energy. Deserved to lose so a point is good”

They were the better side. Impressed with them”

Sheff U are a good side and we’ve managed two lucky points against them”

Another great point gained against a good side in this division”

they were a very good side and this will probably be looked back as a point won. We’ve come away with something after being outplayed completely”

Funniest Fans

Millwall

Millwall’s reputation goes before them and there is a section of their online community who live up to their infamous stereotype but most of the fans I have come across have seemed thoroughly decent and often hilarious. They are always good for a quote or two as proved by their musings this season:

A to Z of Sheffield United

A is for Abdullah bin Musa’ed bin Abdulaziz Al Saud – son of Prince Musa’ed bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his mother is Princess Fatima bint Hashim bin Turki bik Alngers of Turkish descent. No, he is not one of the local taxi drivers made good, he is a rich paper merchant and 50% owner.

B is for Blades. This used to be Sheffield Wednesday’s nickname, until Wednesday moved to Owlerton & became the ‘Owls’. And in true northern style, the men from Bramall Lane nicked it the moment it was left unattended.

C is for Chengdu Wuniu, a Chinese team the Blades bought in 2006 to find talent. It obviously worked well!

D is for Diego, as in Maradona. In 1978, the United manager Harry Haslam watched the 17-year-old Maradona in action on a scouting trip to Argentina and was so impressed he immediately arranged a £200,000 deal. But the transfer fell through when the Second Division club failed to stump up extra cash on top of the fee. The biggest ‘the one that got away’ ever?

E is for equal. The record between Millwall and Sheffield United is 22 wins each & 8 draws.

F is for founded in 1889, four years after the Lions.

G is for Greasy Chip Butty song – sung to the tune of “Annie’s Song”, it celebrates Sheffield culture – such as getting fat and smoking & drinking yourself to death.

H is for Harry. One of United’s most famous recent sides is the one under Dave ‘Harry’ Basset, which kicked and rushed their way to promotion to the old First Division from the Third in 1990 and enjoyed 4 seasons of top flight football – their longest run in the last 40 years.

I is for Ifill, the Blades taking the tricky winger from us after our relegation.

J is for John Smiths Bitter – the only drink they serve in Sheffield.

K is for kit, United have played in red and white stripes for most of their history in contrast to Wednesday’s blue and white

.L is for for Lipsham. Millwall’s first-ever manager made his name as a winger for Sheffield United, where he won an FA Cup Final medal. Did a great job in building a very decent Millwall team between 1911 and the start of the first world war.

M is for missing. Bramall Lane was a three sided ground right up until the 1970s, because it hosted county cricket matches for Yorkshire CCC. It is the only ground to be home to the football league champions (United) and county cricket champions (Yorkshire) in the same year (1898).

N is for naughty. Sheffield United has a very active hooligan element still (Blades Business Crew), and has had many run-ins with Millwall’s own finest over the years. The BBC came unstuck recently in SE London, but at least they made the effort, unlike many (including Leeds).

O is for old. Not United related, but Sheffield is home to the oldest football club in the world – Sheffield FC, founded in 1857

.P is for Paul Peschisolido, former Blade married to lovely Karen Brady. Had to endure taunts of ‘You’re sh1t & your wife’s a slaaaaaag’ many a time at The Den.

Q is for queue, a famous feature of the Sheffield city landscape, especially in the 1980s outside Job Centres, and nowadays outside Greggs’

R is for roundabouts. There are a lot of them around Bramall Lane.

S is for Sheffield Wednesday. The original ‘Blades’ and also regulars at Bramall Lane. It was because Wednesday stopped using the ground that the landlords at Bramall Lane decided to start Sheffield United. United fans respect and thank Wednesday for that all the time.

T is for Tevez. Carlos Tevez scored the goals that helped keep West Ham up at the expense of Sheffield United, even though it was proven that his contract didn’t meet FA rules. Blades fans are very Zen about this now, accepting that fining a club a few million pounds, who cheated to stay in the multi-million pound PL, was completely just and fair.

U is for Unitedites – another nickname given to Sheffield United fans. No idea why!

V is for very wet. It rains in Sheffield at least once in every 24 hour period.

W is for West Ham United. Blades fans hate them nearly as much as us (see T). However, they’ve
not killed any Hammers yet, sadly.

X is for Xenodochy. Natives of Sheffield are very welcoming. It is almost impossible not to pull a northern tart in the Leadmill.

Y is for years. Sheffield United have not managed to win at The Den in just over 7 years

.Z is for zenith. Sadly, Sheffield United peaked early in their footballing career, their best years were between 1897 and 1902, when they were runners-up in the league twice, champions once; and FA Cup winners twice and runners-up once. “

The Blades Business Crew’s top boy is Norris Ramsbottom . He led a crack unit of Sheffield’s finest into the back doubles of Bermondsey, but came unstuck – literally; his false leg fell off. Noz has always told people that he lost his leg in Afghanistan; but in fact it was in Gregg’s (so to speak). That’s because like most northerners, Nozza is addicted to a diet of sausage rolls and pasties. He lost his leg to diabetes and then to some young rascals on a SE London estate. Yet, the BBC are still the top firm in Yorkshire – unlike the famous Leeds United, they do at least forgo getting selfies with tourist at Borough Market to actually venture into Bermondsey

Some of the Fixtures already leaked for next season. Millwall vs West Ham: Thursday morning 5am, Fiji National Stadium. Millwall vs Tottenham 2:45am Monday morning, North Korea Missile Testing Arena with Kim Jong Un in the studio”

If Millwall gets promoted, I’m cancelling the kids’ season tickets. They can’t get a sniff of sporting glory at such a young age. It’ll ruin them. First they need to suffer decades of soul-crushing misery.”

Preston Fans also deserve a mention in this category for this comment alone:

Lad stood in front of us today gave Clayton Donaldson stick for the whole game as he thought he was Nile Ranger. ‘When’s your next prison sentence Ranger?’ Unbelievable stuff ahaha  “

 

Mardiest Fans 

Norwich City

There was serious beef with United and Norwich this season which stemmed from The Canaries time wasting antics in their 1-0 win at The Lane back in September. With United leading in the return tie at Carrow road the Blades fans sang”take your time Sheff Utd and follow the Norwich way” whilst after the full time whistle Chris Wilder ran to the away fans comically tapping his watch. This naturally didn’t make the Blades 2-1 victory any easier to swallow for the home side:

“Ref was a complete (unt. Sheff united are a bunch of poncey (unts.”

“Wilder is in the same bracket as Warnok and Pulis. “

“that Wilder is a fat horrible ***.”

“Well played to Sheffield Utd. Deserved the win today. As for their fickle fans and absolutely pathetic manager… I really can’t believe how childish the manager is. Don’t know his name. Don’t really care. Should take a look at himself and grow up tbh. Clearly holding a grudge over a defeat for no reason. I’ve seen way worse time wasting than what we apparently did at theirr place. And theirr managers excuses for that loss were so laughable! ”

“Their fans love his passion and clear love of the club, which is understandable, but he is severing lacking in class in general. You can b
e passionate without being obnoxious – his comments after the last game were particularly grim”

“2nd win in ten ! Course he’s delighted , we saved his job”

“Bitter, bitter fans, they’re an embarrassment to their team, whom I actually thought played very well….they and the tosser Chris ‘the bus driver’ Wilder need to get over the bitterness and concentrate on your football. Banter it may be, but they celebrated like they’d won the league….and as for the over reaction from Chris Wilder & their subs warming down was embarrassing ”

Most Knowledgeable Fans

Brighton

 

  Well they did try to warn us about James Wilson…………

don’t think we saw him at his best. But maybe we actually did?”

The bloke was useless”

Such an average, overhyped player”

I didn’t think he was good for us at all”

he’s lazy and lacklustre and very weak”

will never make a championship striker, weak, lazy and disinterested.”

didn’t look interested at all”

What a disappointment he was”

James Wilson is terrible.”

 

Most Depressed Fans

Ipswich

Many clubs had worse seasons than the Suffolk outfit but I didn’t come across any set of fans with such a huge sense apathy. Most of the blame was laid squarely at the door of the now departed manager Mick McCarthy and this really came to the fore following our cup win at Portman Road:

Another new record that Micks achieved is four home games and 0 goals. Mick OUT”

Sadly that was typical Mick out there. Game turned into scrap, no quality on display but ultimately the result isn;t that bad. It’s utterly pointless, and certainly not a good result but it isn’t a bad result. We just bob further away in mid table, the second half was as boring as you can imagine and we were lucky to walk away with a point.”

Yes we had a few out but Sheff Utd played virtually a reserve side and still we fail to muster even a single shot on target ? Not f**king One worthy of being called an effort on goal, I mean FFS, it’s the FA Cup and I know MM doesnt give a toss about it but 12,000 cared enough to turn up and that is what you all serve up you hopelsess pile of crap !!

I don’t say this offensively but, does Mick McCarthy have brain diseases or is he just fully blind? Saying we played well without a shot on target is the worst thing you could possibly say. “

You wonder if MM tries to wind the fans in every interview now.” “it’s like he had a psychotic break after Sheff U scored and was watching the great match in the sky, where we came back to win 5-1.
Everyone was happy, loud chants of “Super Mick!” could be heard reverberating round a packed Portman Road….
Then the final whistle went, he snapped out of it, and had to do an interview he wasn’t prepared for.”

He is a narcissist in full blown denial, I mean to be happy with that you have be away with the fairies, on another plane of existance altogether.”

McCarthy’s FA record is P-9 W-0 D-4 L-5 ”

Mick will be delighted with holding Sheff Utd to a 1-0 loss. “Let me tell you,not many teams will achieve a 1-0 loss against that lot”

What a complete and utter waste of time.”

 

The “We Didn’t Know You Cared So Much” Award

Hull City

During United’s spell in League One this award was usually won by Oldham Athletic who seemed to have a bizarre grudge against United and inexplicably saw us as one of their main rivals.  With no Oldham this season, Hull City gladly stepped into the breach. Following their 1-0 win at The KC Stadium many Blades fans will have been surprised to see how hated they were by followers of the of East Yorkshire side:

 

If anyone says we haven’t under achieved they’re silly ****s. They’re a bag of **** .absolute ****ing dogger. And they’ve been in the play off places most of the season. GTF A little fat **** **** up front with a big fat **** **** alongside of him and they’re their two best players.
The rest are none entities.We completely dominated them. The only annoying thing was we stopped going after 65 minutes and decided to hold on.**** piggy ****s.”

Started questioning my hatred of Sheffield Utd!Thank you very much for Keithy Edwards, Thank you very much, thank you very very very much… Thank you very much for Billy Whitehurst… etc… Thank you very much for Stephen Quinn… etc… Thank you very much for Wembley 2014… etc thank you very much for Harry Maguire… etc… Thank you very much for 3 points last night… etc.. can we play you every week?”

The whistles seriously pissed the enemy ****s off. Get in.”

Great 3 points , City 1 vermin 0 , up yours Wilder .”

can’t stand them”

I hate them”

always good to get one over on the Blunts.”

The Pre-Season Predictions Of Sheffield Wednesday Fans

When Sheffield United finally got out of League One at the end of the 2016/2017 season they looked forward to renewing their acquaintance with neighbours Sheffield Wednesday after a 6 year absence of Championship football. With the Owls being only a Fernando Forestieri penalty kick away from the previous seasons play off final, hopes were high from the Wednesday fans that this time they could get back to The Premiership for the first time in nearly two decades. Whilst the Owls were among the favorites for promotion their city rivals United were expected to  be at the other end of the table scrapping for survival. Nobody believed this more than Sheffield Wednesday fans who before a ball was kicked made all sorts of predictions about United’s chances in the upcoming season. Here I present just a sample of those predictions. Taken from Owlstalk, the biggest Sheffield Wednesday message board, these posts will amuse many Blades fans who with the benefit of hindsight know how badly wrong these prophets of doom turned out to be.

Enjoy!

 

The Pigs Season in a nutshell: Initial good start as the Pashun and momentum from last season means they will start well and pick up a few points. Then the reality of the fact that they’re in a mesters league and the massive step up in quality will hit them. Their squad isn’t remotely good enough to cope with Saturday/Tuesday every week and I don’t think their world class strike force will have scored 10 goals between them by Christmas, leaving them in the bottom 3. Cue the suicidal calls to Pigs & Grumble saying Tufty has taken them as far as he can and that he isn’t a Championship Manager. Prince Bog Roll and McSue will then frantically cobble some money together and they’ll sign some more nobodies on the cheap before going down with a lower points total than the mini pigs.  It’s going to be hilarious. “

These are the facts; Promoted with a weak team. None of which would get anywhere near our first team. Signed weak, lower league players. See above. Manager with no experience at this level. If any Utd fans can’t see this, they’re football knowledge is also weak. Maybe they do see it. Who’d have the nads to admit it though? Roll on November when their first XI are worn out, their replacements are dogger & they’re in bottom 3 & reality dawns. “

Wilder will have them organised, they’ll play at a high tempo, they’ll have a few cheering them on at home. Nowt wrong with any of that, it might be enough to keep them up… But they are all expecting them to do better than that; I’m yet to speak to a Blade who doesn’t think they’ll finish mid table or above. There is literally no evidence to support this happening. I’d say the Blunts will be in for a shock from the off. “

Can’t help thinking there’s going to be some harsh lessons handed out to the pigs next season, it’s going to be delicious” 

They are in for a big big shock..  can’t wait”

They’ve got no idea what is about to hit them this season. “

Praise or grumble is going to be delicious next season when reality bites “

one season of winning ,quite frankly, the poorest third division in some time and all of a sudden they are destined for great things. Absolute clowns of the highest order. It’s gunna be amazing when they are calling for tuftys head when they are flirting with relegation.”

They’ll either languish in bottom-half-of-the-table mediocrity or get relegated, nothing else. “

They really think that they are going to make an impact in the championship with a bunch of lower league nobodies with Billy Blunt and Ched the ripper leading the line. The only saving grace is that there will be 3 sides worse than them. “

Dave Jones had us playing expansive football in our first few games back in the Champ. We thought we were going to kick major ass. Then everyone started scoring for fun against us like a hot knife through butter so Dave went turgid and defensive. I can see the same happening at The Sty just a hell of a lot quicker. They will go back down. “

If I was a Blunt I’d be extremely worried.”

They’ll certainly surprise me if they stop up. You will see the difference in class on the opening day. And Brentford are by no means a good side, but they have players who can really hurt you. They don’t “

I’ll be surprised if United reach the 50-point mark – based on the current squad and calibre of the summer recruits/targets so far. Can only see a relegation battle for our neighbours”

We tried to sign a bunch of “young and hungry” players and to rely on team spirit when we got promoted six years ago. We only stayed up by the skin of our teeth. We had better players than United do now. I think they’ll stay up but it’ll be a scrap all year.”

These blunts really don’t know what’s coming this season do they .Are we taking bets on wilder getting sacked before Christmas because I’ll have a piece of that”

The gap between L1 and Championship is an absolute chasm. Big dose of reality for dem blavdes after seeing their fixtures”

I really really want them to be on about 3 points by the time they play us. A rude awakening awaits I reckon.”

Penny will drop when they roll up at S6 in September, in the bottom three. Obviously robbed, cheated & very unlucky!”

They really are in for one hell of a shock”

I find it fuuuucking hilarious that Wilder seems to think the likes of Clarke, Sharp and Lavery wi score enough goals to keep them up next season. My word, is CW in for a shock. “

“Something that leaps out to me is the distinct lack of goals in their squad. Clarke – Absolutely useless at this level. Sharp – might get 10 but he’s way past his best and nowhere near as good as the grunters think. “

Not a chance in hell Clarke is going to be good enough “

Wilder is going to have to make them watertight at the back to get points, and they are far from that.   They need 10/12 wins, Bolton,  Burton,  Millwall and forest are the teams they will be looking to for 6 points – I’m struggling to see who they could legitimately get above other than that.“

Looking at their squad it would be wrong to nail on certain relegation tag. However, if they are to stay out of trouble I would expect Dirty and agricultural style of play. A  heavy winter would be in their favour. Hoof Ball and rough stuff on the cards ! “

Still not grasping how far the division has moved on since they were last in it. Bristol City only stayed up last season because of Tammy Abraham and they’ve had to spend £6m on a replacement, just to survive. “

Let them have their moment. Let them give it the big un. But come the end of August when they’ll have less than 3 pts after 5 games they’ll all go quiet. When the realise the best player they’ve got in the transfer window was ched bundy they’ll shut up. “

They might get the odd decent result, but these 46 games are alot tougher than the L1 46 games. If they can build up some decent home form they might be alright, but, all the promoted sides will struggle”

The team they have now is worse than the one they were relegated with and missed out on promotion with the following year. Meanwhile, the quality of the Championship has improved considerably over the last 6 years. It really doesn’t bode well for them, but of course they’re far too thick to see it. At the end of the season, if they finish 21st and take 3 or 4 points off us they’ll see the season as a huge success and will be giving it large etc. Yawn. “

Barnsley will finish above them which says it all “

I seriously cannot wait for Barnsley to beat them at home. The sight of 20,000 Blunts plus a few more dressed up as empty seats crashing back down to reality is going to be absolutely f*cking hilarious.“

My prediction is They’ll be in, and finish in the bottom 8 all year. “

I think they’ll stay up. I think “PASHUN” and fight will get them more points at home than Millwall and Bolton, and I’d also expect the quality of the division to catch up with Burton. Barnsley look like they might utterly crash as well. That’s 4 teams who I wouldn’t be surprised to see finish below United. But I’m struggling to see any more.”

They keep talking about momentum and, fair enough, they got 100 points and so yeah there may be a bit of that early on. We got 81 points in the league above and have finished in the top 6 the last two seasons; I’d muc rather have that momentum.”

So lads, how many points are they finishing behind us? I’ll say 26.”

I reckon they’ll be minding a gap of 30+ points.”

I’ll go for 32 points behind us”

How many points did ToyTown get last year? Blunts will get less. 15 points for them, If we are aiming for top two need at least 85 points so 70 point gap? We can only hope “

As for finishing above us, they will be lucky to be in the same half of the table as us “

Can see them finishing above Bolton Burton and Millwall, anything more than that and they’ve had a great season”

Been funny seeing all the optimism slowly draining from the Blavdes as the big kick off approaches.Where’s all the “we’re coming for you” bullshit now? They’re in for torrid season and deep down they all know it.”

Some of of their comments about Wednesday are astonishing. They want to believe so badly that we’re just an expensively assembled shambles. They really want to believe that they’ve got this special “team” that somehow trumps ours, just because we’ve spent a lot. Their way of doing it (lower league gems spotted by the scouting mastermind that is Chrissy Wilder) is obviously much better than our way (signing proven players with experience of promotion from this division)”

At the end of the day if we turn up (which we will) they might just need another ball. Even better if they turn up with their pashun and have a go at us instead of boring us to tears like Cloughs Burton then they could get a right Royal f**king pasting”

there’s more chance of another Boxing Day for us this season than I can ever remember”

THe best way and most fun thing to do is nod and agree with everything they say. Then in may just remind them of it. Simple but bloody fantastic “

Roy's Faves

I started doing these “View From” posts on our first day back in League One. After beating Oldham 2-0 I found myself looking at their forum to find them waxing lyric over United’s performance that day. I posted what the Latics fans were saying on Bladesmad and the posters on there seemed to enjoy reading the views. I then did the same for the Brentford game the week after and it just went from there.

In the 6 years doing these views I have come across some comments from oppositions fans that have made me proud and ashamed to be a Blade in equal measure. The football we played at times under Wilson and latterly Wilder left many oppositions fans with no option but to take their hat of to a superior team. Under Weir and Adkins I was confronted with the harsh truth that the club I supported were in dire straights. Being laughed at by fans of clubs who were well below United in the footballing pyramid when I was growing up caused many a sobering moment.

What always found it’s way through the good and bad spells though was humour. United fans have always had a self deprecating nature and many other long suffering League One fans shared this trait. Here I have compiled a list of some of the funniest comments I have come across in the past 6 years. I’m sure I will have missed so many out but here are the ones that stuck in my mind. Thanks to everyone who has read these views over these past painful 6 years and here’s to more laughs next year in the Championship.

 

 

“Brilliant day in Sheffield.Except for the football. And the referee. And the performance.”

Port Vale fan

 

““Can’t reveal the exact plans at this stage, but keep an eye on the away dugout about 20 minutes in! If all goes well, I will fellate Chris Wilder (to completion) to thank him for last season.
I will then be in the West Stand concourse at half time, for questions, autographs and will be happy to pose for photos with jism all over my face.”

“hope we p*ss all over them and Wilder gets sent to the stands.
Like, I’d always be grateful to an ex wife for my fantastic kids, but I don’t want to see her sucking off her new bloke

Northampton Fans

 

“If Che Adams scores I’ll chuck myself head-first into the Trent. I’ve had mates who played for Ilkeston in recent years so I knew about him ages ago obviously because they all raved about him being in the yoofs and training with the first-team, so I rather relentlessly hounded Notts in a one-man campaign to sign him (they could have got him for a nominal fee in the summer) – to me it was kind of like unearthing a gem but when he scored against Spurs and my Twitter mentions and phone went a bit mad I realised it was probably closer to a weird obsession with an 18 year old boy.
When he signed for Sheff Utd I was in a car crossing the Channel tunnel on the way to Belgium and I think I spent a solid 5 minutes having a rant telling Notts to fuck off and ‘we’ll never learn’.
The moral of the story is, as ever, listen to me.
We’ll lose this comfortably. Although our record against Sheff Utd isn’t the worst and there’s no Harry Maguire to score his obligatory goal either – remember when we beat them last season with Showunmi and Fotheringham scoring?! – I’d be embarrassed if that happened to my powerleague team. “

Notts County Fan

 

“we got taken up the arse harder than Jenna Jameson has ever done in her career”

“Sheff Utd are Jealous mate, pure and simple.

Roy’s Faves

I started doing these “View From” posts on our first day back in League One. After beating Oldham 2-0 I found myself looking at their forum to find them waxing lyric over United’s performance that day. I posted what the Latics fans were saying on Bladesmad and the posters on there seemed to enjoy reading the views. I then did the same for the Brentford game the week after and it just went from there.

In the 6 years doing these views I have come across some comments from oppositions fans that have made me proud and ashamed to be a Blade in equal measure. The football we played at times under Wilson and latterly Wilder left many oppositions fans with no option but to take their hat of to a superior team. Under Weir and Adkins I was confronted with the harsh truth that the club I supported were in dire straights. Being laughed at by fans of clubs who were well below United in the footballing pyramid when I was growing up caused many a sobering moment.

What always found it’s way through the good and bad spells though was humour. United fans have always had a self deprecating nature and many other long suffering League One fans shared this trait. Here I have compiled a list of some of the funniest comments I have come across in the past 6 years. I’m sure I will have missed so many out but here are the ones that stuck in my mind. Thanks to everyone who has read these views over these past painful 6 years and here’s to more laughs next year in the Championship.

 

 

“Brilliant day in Sheffield.Except for the football. And the referee. And the performance.”

Port Vale fan

 

““Can’t reveal the exact plans at this stage, but keep an eye on the away dugout about 20 minutes in! If all goes well, I will fellate Chris Wilder (to completion) to thank him for last season.
I will then be in the West Stand concourse at half time, for questions, autographs and will be happy to pose for photos with jism all over my face.”

“hope we p*ss all over them and Wilder gets sent to the stands.
Like, I’d always be grateful to an ex wife for my fantastic kids, but I don’t want to see her sucking off her new bloke

Northampton Fans

 

“If Che Adams scores I’ll chuck myself head-first into the Trent. I’ve had mates who played for Ilkeston in recent years so I knew about him ages ago obviously because they all raved about him being in the yoofs and training with the first-team, so I rather relentlessly hounded Notts in a one-man campaign to sign him (they could have got him for a nominal fee in the summer) – to me it was kind of like unearthing a gem but when he scored against Spurs and my Twitter mentions and phone went a bit mad I realised it was probably closer to a weird obsession with an 18 year old boy.
When he signed for Sheff Utd I was in a car crossing the Channel tunnel on the way to Belgium and I think I spent a solid 5 minutes having a rant telling Notts to fuck off and ‘we’ll never learn’.
The moral of the story is, as ever, listen to me.
We’ll lose this comfortably. Although our record against Sheff Utd isn’t the worst and there’s no Harry Maguire to score his obligatory goal either – remember when we beat them last season with Showunmi and Fotheringham scoring?! – I’d be embarrassed if that happened to my powerleague team. “
