“I think there will have been two lists , one if we go up, one if we go down, I think Robinson may have been on both….but would be more likely in the champ ,possibly as our main striker ?
It’s great he danced a bit and got drunk etc ….but that doesn’t mean we should spend millions on him”

“I’m not so sure about us not signing Robinson. Look at his celebrations and and when asked about his future Livermore side whispered “be careful” to him”

“And his reaction at the end of the match he reacting like one of us rather than just a loan player”

“I’m all for making these signings permanent.
They’re a joy to watch.
Robinson has become a real fans favourite – never seen a loan player look so happy.”

“Took the words right out of my mouth. Hope we can get him for next season.”

“I’m hoping we keep Robinson ,he proved me right a revolution up top”

“Could’ve won the league by miles if we’d played Robinson up top since January”

“Robinson, Krovi and Pereira announced today on permanents and I think that would just top it all of wouldn’t it?”

“All the loans played for the shirt, make them all permanent”

“Dear Sheffield United,
Robinson is the worst winger I’ve seen at the Albion. You need to give us Robinson in exchange for Oli Burke, a much better winger.
Regards, everyone at West Brom.”

“love his enthusiasm”

“We look dangerous with Robinson. Some actual mobility for a change.”

“I really rate Robinson”

“been inspired by Robinson”

” like watching prime r9″

“It’s pretty 50/50 on whether we’ll sign him permanently I reckon but it’s a pity Callum Robinson hasn’t played as a striker already given how much we’ve struggled there this season. A bit of pace up there can do a lot for a team.”

“On Robinson it’s a tough one because only a handful of games since joining in jan he’s performed/at £8million I think it needs to be thought out/not be rushed into we need an out and out goal scorer and they are not hard to come by he might one to keep on the back burner”

“Robinson is a good squad player for LW/ST and could do a job now and then. If we’re planning just to build a squad that can be competitive for the premier league and championship if we go down his age is ideal. If it’s staying up or bust maybe not”

“Robinson cuts inside too much and runs into congestion”

“I think he’s too lightweight”

“Get rid of Robinson. Get rid”

“Not good enough”

Rangers Fans Views On Wes Foderingham

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 101165184_254991222410248_8968854224808968192_n-644x215.png

“Good move for his bank account, but if he wants to be playing week in week out he’d have been better off in the Championship imo.”
Tin hat on but he’s better than the opinion most on here have of him.”

“There are a few good young English Gk’s, apart from Henderson coming through, Ramsdale , Pope etc. who bigger clubs may just be thinking about moving for so Big Wes just might have timed it, and chosen, right to get a starting place at a decent sized club. As far as I know he trains well and conducts himself well, needs to work on a few things, but at 29 has time to improve these areas, he has gone to a club where, once Henderson moves on, he must have a good chance of getting a starting place.”

“Foderingham had many good games for us, made plenty of great saves”

“Dont understand this move for him.Left us because he wants to be no.1.Signs for a really good club who have an outstanding keeper he will never dislodge.”

“Good luck to him. He won’t play for them much but I guess it’s a good move to get to the EPL.
Most EPL clubs sign random second and third choice keepers so it’s not a major surprise.”

“Big fan of Wes but imo he’ll be warming the bench again, best of luck to him .”

“Some of those seats in the dugouts down in the EPL look comfortable as fuck so can understand why he has signed.”

“Never know, Henderson goes back to Utd and he could find himself starting.
Few decent games and then because he’s English he’ll be touted as a £25m goalkeeper. “

“Good luck to him. Hopefully he lets a few in when we play them in the Europa League next season.”

“well done to him if he does sign for them, likeable team.”

“Great move for him”

“Good on him good move
don’t hate the guy
had a howler that 5-1 game but he wasn’t a bad goalkeeper “

“Not the greatest keeper we’ve ever had but a likeable chap”

“Good luck to him, far too many bombscare moments for me and surprised he lasted so long.”

“He’s shite and even when Henderson leaves there’s no way Wes becomes their number 1. He’s been signed as a backup because he’s free and ticks the box of being English.
Wanted 1st team football but probably dropped that demand when he realised the level he would need to drop down to to achieve that so settled for sitting on the bench in the premier league for a handsome wage instead. Fair play to him.”

“I’m just glad he’s gone.Thought he was shite”

“Really didn’t rate him at all.”

“Long shots from outside the box if he’s in goal for them. He’s no good enough for that level.”

“I’ve never seen a Rangers keeper concede so many goals from outside the box.”

” Wes “cant deal with shots from outside the box” Foderingham”

” Wes Foderingham’s distribution from his feet was equal to my attempts at combing my hair.”

“I am pretty shocked by this move, he is terrible. “

“League 1 Wes has hit the big time”

“below average keeper who can consider himself fortunate to be able to tell people the played for us when he is retired “

“How have we managed to let a keeper go that has EPL suitors and not get a penny for him. “

“Ravel Morrison will be a massive success at Boro under woodgate. Woody knows the score, coz hes had his own problems in years gone by, so he knows the sketch. Tell ya man the beginning is now for Rav at the mighy reds.”

“I said this when he signed he’s been a total bellend through his career but what might have turned his attention to boro is woody who can give him his experience of over coming his bad habits away from the field my judgement is out on this one could sure woodys qualities”

“I think it’s safe to say he’s gonna need a game or two to fully get up to speed. He’s been fine so far.”

“seems neat and tidy enough”

“Looks ok”

“Terrible first 20 mins, didn’t look a footballer at all, then he started to get on the ball and ping it about. He was the one midfielder that was using the width and finding the Fbs”

“I don’t know why we took Ravel off. He’s the only one in the team comfortable with the ball at his feet.”

“Howson and Ravel are the only ones Who offers something when we have the ball”

Magnificent

“Looked alright today if it weren’t for that donkey heneghan getting sent off for no reason we’d of won comfortably”

“thick, clumsy dickhead.”

“He can go for me, we just have such a shite defence he stands out better but he’s a donkey.”

“Ben Heneghan hasn’t had a good game since we extended his loan, cost us again today.”

“What’s happened to Heneghan these last couple of months? Erratic form and now a needless red card. Time out of the side might not do him any harm.”

“been all over the place recently”

“Heneghan has slyly been a liability for weeks now what’s going on.” “I really like Heneghan but he’s been a bit suspect for the last few weeks now.”

“Glad someone said it iv been thinking the same since tranmere away where he got bullied”

“No one can slag this lad off he works hard every game. Yes hes made a few mistakes but who hasn’t and today the red card was one of them”

“He will always be one of us. Hope he signs the contract and takes us up next season”

“Hope he signs in the summer”

Magnificent

“We will not win the war with Duffy and Bogle”

“You can also see from Duffy that it is a good ball-solid player. But yeah. 34 years and looks a bit on the heavy side. Hope that a way will be found that Duffy can use his creativity to serve Boggle and Summervile.”

“Duffy also good, mobile and looking for openings”

“Boggel and Duffy are a bit worried, a bit too short to judge them, but a lot more threatening than Necid.”

“Laurens de Bock and Duffy, the greatest European talents a few years ago and now let to Ado to fight against relegation in the Netherlands. It can go crazy in the life of a soccer player”

“Mark Duffy is really bad. Always leave the pass line to Dumfries open, which happily rumbles over it every time”

“Send Duffy and Spence back.”

Magnificent

“A quality debut”

“That Bryan looks a player, I like him shallot”

“Bryan looks like a prize onion. A shallot some might say…”

“Kean Bryan MOM” “He was outstanding”

“love Bryan quality centre half”

“Kean Bryan looks a find!”

“Kean Bryan. Player.”

“Awful defending from Bryan for their goal”

“He needs to win more headers at the back”

“Only second game that Nsiala and Bryan plays together so some mistakes are bound to happen. ”

Magnificent

“Callum Robinson has changed this side”

“How good is Callum Robinson though”

“Callum Robinson is a superb footballer, been the piece we have had missing since the Diangana injury. His time here will only make him a better player with the attitude he has”

“I have a feeling he’ll be an integral cog in the wheel during the run in great business”

“Robinson outstanding”

“Callum Robinson is a lovely football player”

“Few shouts for Man of the Match today but Callum Robinson for me. He has given us that extra dimension that we’ve been missing. Real energy, goal-threat and seems to have a great understanding with HRK, Krov and Matheus. Softened the loss of Grady big time. Great loan”

“Robinson has had three solid games, a breath of fresh air”

“Robinson was fabulous today”

“Robinson gives us so much going forward”

“what a excellent loan signing was brilliant today”

“Robinson MOM by a mile”

“Love Robinson he is just a brute of a player”

“He’s combined very well with Kron, Pereira and Townsend to create more attacking opportunities. Already a popular figure with other players based on their interactions on field”

Magnificent

“I thought Nathan Thomas was absolutely immense yesterday. A different player to a little while ago. I’ve always like his style of play, who wouldn’t , he can create a bit of magic from nothing, but like others I have sometimes questioned his fitness and will. Yesterday, particularly in the second half he just kept going. Every time we broke forward it was him, running into the box and shooting, running forward and passing. Nothing came off yestrday, on other days it could be another hat trick.” “Thomas is playing exceptionally well atm”

“Thomas skinned his man every time he had the ball”

“we all know on his day he can be a match winner, but he really needs to learn when to shoot and when to lay the ball off to a team mate in a better position.”

“Described as an enigma…sums him up perfectly. Awesome v FGR, v Cheltenham a plethora of heavy touches, poor choices and woeful set pieces. Not his best game by a long way but next game could be the total opposite.”

“tried always an option, but not good enough. Was his man with the assist from the goal, not sure given how poor he is defensively why he’s not left up at set pieces.”

Magnificent

“A pretty anonymous debut. Starved of service, yes, but did blaze his one chance way over the bar from inside the box after arguably our best move of the game.”

“Smith looked lively but didn’t get the service and was isolated as well.”

“Cant really judge him yet”

“Looks decent”

Magnificent

“Sponsors’ Man of the Match and with good reason. Defended well for the most part and created quite a few chances, including winning the penalty, through his driving forward runs on the left. He’s got a successful career ahead of him at a higher level than this.”

“Fully justified BBM’s controversial decision to play him at centre-back rather than Keohane over the last few weeks. Has the pace and strength to play this role effectively against dangerous opponents and was terrific in his reading of the game throughout”

“Weird he was filling in at centre half despite being one of the most successful crossers this season in League One.”

“He’s phenomenal”

“Not his best performance either and I wonder if he has maybe been rushed back from the knock he picked up”

“He was ripped to shreds against Sunderland”

“He was turned inside out more times than I can mention”

Magnificent

“Parkhouse didn’t do anything! It was his 1st start so i’m willing to give him benefit of the doubt.”

“Didn’t offer anything”

“Parkhouse looks what he is a big lump who has been playing in the Irish league! Feel sorry”

“Parkhouse (Shithouse in my opinion)”

“I thought Parkhouse tried, we was basically just asked to impersonate Cassidy”

“Why isn’t Parkhouse starting? We loan out Cowley and get another “goal scorer” on fire and we don’t start with him.”

“Parkhouse not even in the squad?? Our great new saviour striker not playing… injured already??”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 81309398_749003018941632_6290736073286877184_n.png

“At the time left for China with us for 2 million of which 1 million remained stuck to brokers.”

“He was on high wages so we needed to clear”

“I thought (and I still think) that he was going to be a big machine.”

“zivkovic left at because his ambitions did not match those of the club. Wonder if that does not mean ‘expectations’ “

“Suffered from star allures at KV Oostende”

“Zivkovic left us with frustrations.“

“Zivkovic was not good under Vanderhaeghe, not under Custovic and not under Verheyen ”

“no better than dimata”

“I’m glad he has gone”

“Up to now he has failed everywhere”

“wasn’t a guaranteed starter at Oostende”

“He did not eat the league”

“Zivkovic’s career is already going wild. Thanks to a business manager and wrong mentality. “

“Realsied he that he was not good enough for the top or sub-top and opted for the money.”

“Surprised he has got an EPL move”

Bayer Leverkusen’s Fans Views On Panagiotis Retsos

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 81309398_749003018941632_6290736073286877184_n.png

“Retsos only got fit again in the course of the first half of the season. Why would we let him go?”

“not willing to give up retsos at all, and if so, only with an exceptional offer that is significantly above market value. Anything else would be nonsense.”

“If we gave up Retsos, Dragovic and Danger in winter, Rolfes would have been able to get rid of 4 players (including Jedvaj) within 6 months, which for various reasons did not meet the requirements formulated by Carro. This may sound a bit hard, especially with Retsos and Danger (which I really like), because both of them had really bad luck with injuries. “

“Retsos needs game practice”

“I wish that the reports that he was released for winter are wrong.
Would be really bitter if he should not prevail with us, because I see the greatest potential in this position compared to bender and wiser”

“Incredible why he never gets a chance”

“Just don’t understand why he gets so little time.”

“maybe because he felt hurt since his commitment and bosz wants to bring him back a little more carefully? who knows”

“He defensively shows why he is considered a talent.”

“Someone in the club has to whisper in Peter’s ear that Retsos was already a regular here at 19. In his eyes he is probably just some talent that has been hurt forever and is of no interest.”

“He has been remarkable after such a long break in the competitive game.”

“The boy is good, wide awake. Will prevail.”

“has already indicated his talent in a top European club in a top league.
In addition, he is now a national player and versatile”.

“Found him defensively not that bad. Forward rather harmless”

“Solid at the back, not at the front. But don’t blame him. He is a trained IV and is primarily used in the AV positions.”

“His passing us strong, he is duel strong. As a full-back, you have to offer a lot offensively”.

“He is very tough”

“He showed a lot of light and shadow in his time, so I honestly don’t see any great increase in value. At most the long contract term would drive the price if someone absolutely wanted it”.

“He played his part um … solidly. It’s ok .. with the many racing pigs in the league that need to be raged, he has to sort his legs first.”

“He is 19 and just out of the A-junior age; still has eggshells behind his ears and understands hardly a word of German here …
A talent – nothing more. At 27, that’ll be a top defender. As long as you will have to suffer one or two times while watching; normal for a training club …”

“The guy likes to make 1-2 hair-raising mistakes per game. In addition, the blind passes. If he only lifted his head, then these passes would also arrive.
But well, he’s only 19 years old.”

“What good does it do if he plays well against once Hamburg and is otherwise always catastrophic? “

“He can do something with the ball. Presented a very neat re-launch of the Greek.”

Genk Fans Views On Sander Berge

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 81309398_749003018941632_6290736073286877184_n.png

“I wish this topper a lot of success. Arrived as a boy, leaving as a (gentle) man. I will certainly continue to follow his further career”

“he is good there for a number of years, given his talent and his young age”

“Not enough for a player of that caliber who goes to the PL.”

“It isn’t a lot of cash for what is probably a decent big man defensive midfielder, and possibly a very good one. Plus, he’s only 21 so his ceiling is still pretty high. He’s at least worth a flyer. In fact, I’m not sure you can find another player with a similar profile for that cheap right now.”

“Just shows how much money English clubs have”

“Icon!! Don’t leave plz”

“I don’t like he has said goodbye”

“What are we going to miss that man, eternal respect”

“We have lost everything now he has gone”

“I do think boys like Samatta and Berge have earned their transfer, also this season. “

“I enjoyed having him”

“We can be happy with such a player.
Mentality, personality and a top baller.”

“Young and very talented”

“Really an absolute winner. We are playing a dramatic season and yet he manages to take enormous steps as a football player. While last season he often confined himself to defensive work, he increasingly involved himself in the build-up and he also became a real leader in the field.”

“see how Berge, Maehle and Lucumi play in big games like last season against Besiktas. These 3 players played so professional. In these 3 players you see they got a big future! “

“our key player. “

“our key player. “

“Our real captain!
He is the one who gives the new / inexperienced players who join the team some courage before the match, he is the one who tries to adjust the team during the match, he is the one who always gives intelligent interviews after the match, he is the one that almost always plays at the right level!
Such maturity at such a young age! Man, I’m going to miss this classroom when he’s out of here!”

“Take Berge out of here and our midfield is collapsing even harder than a house of cards.”
“will be one of the worlds best central defensive midfielder one day and could also do a van dijk”

“Gonna be a big player”

“A very intelligent player with a large reach and a seemingly relaxed game style that makes the others play better”
“Berge can and will play for a team like Man City or other big clubs mark my words!”

“like prime-age Carvalho, which is pretty good “

“Balancing pendulum at all times of play, retrieves and delivers using simple processes as we look for in a modern 6.”

“He has the physique”

“A real winner. Who will never receive an individual prize in Belgium. “

“Thorstvedt gives off the same power as Berge but is not as fast as him! “

“At just 21, he’s played over 100 senior games. “

“had a dip in the past few months, but still a great leader within the team. May also earn a big prize, still only 21 years . PS. How good does he look? “

“He has quality and class. He still has to take steps. And he can only do that in a stronger competition. In a team in which he plays every week.“

“I remain curious if he can easily pick up the level higher up. Especially the pace and his response are two major points of work for me.”

“he still has to take a few steps on the offensive.”

“Let him go to Sheffield, stand in a nice place in the ranking and he can show himself to the top clubs there.
Better every week a top match in the premier league than here some semi professional matches in PO2”

“I had awarded him something nicer than Sheffield.”

“To be honest, I don’t understand why Berge – who is always talking about finding the right club – chooses Sheffield. It may be that I totally misunderstand their game concept and football philosophy because I have to rely purely on summaries of MOTD, but Berge mainly needs a footballing team, one that wants to play well. And from Sheffield I have the feeling that it is such a typical English mid-engine that loves the more physical play. I wonder if he will stand there, but I fear that he will not give himself a present by choosing a club where he will not be able to play his true qualities.”

“Sheffield: I don’t think it’s the best choice either, but a mid-engine is the ideal rocket to the top. And I think that Berge will belong to that. He will learn a lot and quickly in the PL.”

“Chances are that Sheffield will dangle at the bottom next year and fight for a year in midfield. I just don’t think it is the right competition for him to fully develop his qualities and Berge just seems to benefit me from a really footballing team.”

“Berge had rejected Sheffield in the summer because he did not feel like a game of tough kick & rush. In the meantime, it appears that Sheffield does not just play physical football in the PL. The choice of Berge is indeed conscious, also the playing style of Sheffield. That he had doubts about that in the summer was normal, now half a year later you can indeed see that it can be a right choice. In any case a better choice than taking the step to a club like Liverpool.”

“Well, then I already have a somewhat wrong idea of ​​the football that Sheffield brings. As I said, on the basis of summaries you can often not get a correct picture since they only show dangerous phases. Apart from that, I still have my doubts, but we’ll see what next season gives.”

Nottingham Forest Fans Views On Jack Robinson

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 81309398_749003018941632_6290736073286877184_n.png

“He’s done well to land a Prem move, not sure what they’ve seen tbh”

“He’s better than he has shown in his last few performances, but still not really shown himself to be prem quality whilst here.”

“He is ok as back up , But let’s face it if he is second best at a championship club then I find this very odd .He is bang average , He is ok going forward but makes loads of mistakes and his positional abilities are shocking, He will be murdered by VAR in the prem”

“He’s been poor this season. I’m not sorry to see him go.

“Don’t know why they’d want him he’s terrible

“If we have ambitions of been in the top league it won’t include Jack Robinson sell sell sell”

“Will not be missed and on big wages”

“I will drive him to Bramhill lane myself. Gives away too many free kicks in dangerous areas”

“Says enough about Osborn as a LB that they want to bring Robinson as well”

“Actually quite starting to like Sheffield United. Not only do they give us £3.5m for Ben Osborn but they want Robinson too?”

“They’ve take one of our shite left backs why do they want another”

“Blades: a bang average forest full back… “take our money””

“He can’t play wing back so get rid”

“He’s an average Championship defender who is currently 2nd choice LB and 5th choice centre back, who’s contract is running out in six months.”

“He was decent initially. Been absolutely dreadful when he’s played this season tho”

“Played well as a left sided centre half but has been liability at left back”

“He’s not a bad player but his mistakes are too frequent and often bad ones. Although maybe that does make him a bad player with a reasonable level of ability.”

“Don’t get the hate for Robbo. I rate him, he’s not as good as Riberio but a good championship left back”.

“I maintain that Robinson is a good player who is just going through a terrible run of form”

“I like Robbo, has made mistakes but can be a really good Left back on his day”

“I think he may actually be just as average in the Prem too…The kind of player to be able to up his game to always be average at any level. “

“Seemed to remember he was in POS discussions last season. Always rated him better as a CB personally, but never been as hyper critical as most on his FB performances. Commitment without question, has ability, proof your only a couple of mistakes away from being shit at Forest. “

“They would look at him has a left sided centre half could be a good player there for them in a 3 and back up.”

“Steady utility man , can play anywhere in the back 4”

“Robinson at LB:

P18 W10 D7 L1

Robinson not at LB:

Blackburn Rovers Fans Views On Jack Rodwell

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Dem-Blades-Season-Ticket-Banner-Roy-on-Sale-now-2-644x225.png

“Added some class to our defensive line”

“Decent player who can plan in 2 positions, but I wasn’t too upset he left. I’d go to Italy or MLS if I was him, he’ll always have a mercenary tag in England.”

“I reckon he is a class player”

“He’s class”

“To have a player of Rodwell’s ability that can play midfield or centre back is a rare luxury I’d have liked to have seen him play more in midfield instead”

“to be fair to him, Rodwell did show his class at times and I was in favour of offering a new deal had he wanted to stay.”

“Rodwell is excellent quality but he might be employed better in a system which employs a single deep sitting centre mid, rather like Campo at Bolton a few years back. “

“I’d personally class him as a midfielder but mostly played in defence for us”

“had talent but questionable attitude and certainly not fit for purpose having been signed as a CB”

“Too good for Rovers – unless he saw us as such a step down it would negatively impact on his career.”

” get Rodwell’s attitude right and you have a class midfielder”

“Rodwell was very good for us in games last season. He’s good player, but a weird guy.”

“Rodwell has had about 3 of the last 4 years on holiday. He should be the freshest footballer in all 4 divisions. And at his a

“Thought he strolled the games with Lenihan around Christmas.”

“looked decent when we’re in control, totally disappeared when we were under the cosh. Also a pretty rubbish CB”

“Rodwell was not fit for purpose as a centre back”

“at best, bang average for us last year”

“What a waste of a God given talent.He’s scammed a very nice living out of achieving the square root of sweet FA and when his career is over will be remembered for nowt other than being a complete waste of space. In fact his father should have shot him into space almost 30 years ago! “

“What a waste of obvious talent, its a crying shame that the money they get destroys their hunger for success. That’s why I’m falling out of love with the game”

Pre-Match View From Man Utd

“Who knew we’d be at the end of November and the United from Sheffield would be higher than the one from Manchester?”

“Will be a tough game. Have had some fantastic results so far this season.Should have at least got a draw against Liverpool, beat Arsenal, drew with Chelsea, should have beaten Spurs. “

“Sheffield United have gone 60 games without losing by more than one goal. They’ve been great this season. Full value for their league position. Only lost to ‘Pool by a keeper howler. Came back from 2 down to draw at the Bridge. Dominated Spurs to the point of embarrassment. Swatted aside Everton away. Can’t praise Wilder enough so far. Ole will need some special wheeling to get through this one. Should be a good game…”

“Sheffield are going to be extremely compact. They have allowed a grand total of 4 goals at home this season. They don’t score a lot of goals, but their defense is harder to score on than both Liverpool and Manchester City right now. This is a team that will play extremely compact, 10 men behind the ball and spring the counter attack. Sheffield so far is the fairytale story of the season.”

“Expecting a VERY tough game but with our form and especially Fred’s form i think we can break down their defence and get a result. Sheffield is this years 18/19 Wolverhampton”

“They have a solid defence. This will be Ole’s first real test”

“Ole beats Sheffield United, a team with a defined style, belief & will out work and fight us 200%? No way”

“A solid defensive block with a midfield that will scrap for every single ball and not allow us to settle and dictate the game.From the games I’ve seen them play, their work rate is second to none.”

“Any team that is solid and sits back will cause us trouble. It needs the coaches to come up with a Plan B.”

“A tricky tie on paper and Man United have already lost to worse teams than Sheffield United this season. “

“Sheffield United haven’t lost a league game by more then one goal in like 14 months or something. We’ll do very well to get a win here.”

“We’d have to massively ride our luck to come away with 3 points.”

“Sheffield United are the real test to see how far we’ve improved.”

“Sheff Utd are so good tactically. Wilder should be in the convo next time any English club mgmt job is mentioned. I’m convinced no job is too big for him”

“At times it’s like they have 12 or 13 players on the pitch!”

“Sheff U have been great this season and I really like the way they play, but at home they’ll give it a go and leave spaces more than they would away from home.”

“Now, why would they ever do such obviously stupid and suicidal thing? Because they play at home they are obligated to be suicidal? Does Chris Wilder have no clue and can’t even figure out what is obvious to all of us – that United is clinical in quick counter-attacks and struggles against a packed defense? Why would they ever open up the game when we have Martial, Rashford, James and crappy midfield? Obviously, they have much better chances sitting back and destroying us in midfield. So – why would they not use such obvious advantage? There is no honor in attacking stupidly and losing foolishly. They will surely expose our weaknesses and won’t act suicidal.”

“I think the pessimism here is a little bit exaggerated. Sure, we have lost way stupider games, but FFS it’s Sheffield United… Like – seriously.This game is entirely ours to win or lose and we can do both ourselves, easily. Sheffield doesn’t matter that much. “

“Why are so many people pessimistic about our chances? It’s Sheffield, not Barcelona. And without Dean Henderson too. “

“Sheffield U are actually a lot harder to beat when they are playing away.”

“I’m optimistic that the way Sheffield United play will actually make them the ideal opponents for us with Rashford and James’ pace on the break, but we will see”

“don’t think Dean Henderson will ever be good enough to be United’s no.1 but he is a very impressive keeper and he as much as the defenders will have been responsible for their defensive record, but with a PL debutant(Verrips or Moore)coming in….The newbie might play a blinder, but it’s more likely that with a fast start we can play on his nerves and the uncertainty DH not being there will cause, get an early goal, play to our strengths(counter-attacking at pace) and it could be a walk in the park.”

“It’s also important to note that Sheffield United are not a huge offensive threat like you expect Chelsea or Liverpool to be. It is not a high scoring side. Their strength entirely lies in their ability to close ranks in the back and catch teams too high up. Sheffield Uniteds problem on the other hand is that they will be playing a side that is just as hard to score on as they are. Key difference is that our strikers are vastly better, and are finally hitting form. We’re the favorites in this match, but we should not make the assumption that this will be easy, because it will certainly be a tight game, unless the floodgates somehow open. “

“For the first time n a long time, i see some positive change coming from results and players. It is not gane by game consistent but from the last 6 we have won 5 and played very well in 4, awful in the first against Partizan away and was complacent in the away gane against Bournemouth. Today was a huge test of complacency and we got the early goals, got complacent but for the first time in a very very very long time we showed urgency to score and that resulted in a quick fire goal. For the first tkme on a while, i think i am thinking clearly, we will beat Sheffield united away. ”

“I am starting to see signs that we are capable of scoring a few goals in a game and with Sheffield United’s strong defence, we would do well to score more than 2. “

“Sheffield aren’t scoring that much and their defensive record at home isn’t great”

“I’ve just seen a Manchester United ‘fan’ with a picture of the Sheffield United badge as his profile picture. State of this fan base…imagine wanting us to lose!”

View From The Republic Of Ireland

A collection of quotes taken from fans of The Republic Of Ireland on the performances of John Egan, Enda Stevens, David McGoldrick and Callum Robinson against Denmark.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 73212173_1553984761409509_7596666161475878912_n-644x215.png

“Egan/Stevens have been massive finds”

“Egan was solid at the back until he had to come off”

“Egan lifted the mood two minutes in by charging into the middle of the park and throwing himself at a long ball to win a header and played on the front foot”

“I think defender wise we’re ok with Duffy and Egan”

“Stevens and Doherty were good”

“Stevens very good at lb”

“Stevens drove Ireland on throughout the game, and his cross for the Doherty goal was nothing short of phenomenal. His most impressive Ireland performance to date.”

“Composed and never ruffled, he looks more comfortable in a green shirt with every game.”

“Cant be fun for Enda Stevens having McClean alongside him on the left wing or for our full backs when under pressure to have no easy out ball in midfield because we are afraid to get on it in tight spaces.”

“Robinson is an upgrade on McClean”

“Robinson has plenty of room to improve”

“For a fresh pair of legs and given the amount of possession we had, he should have made an impact Robinson had an extra 15 mins on the pitch and done no more than Maguire”

“Robinson never really threatened the Danish defence”

“Robinson was excellent. Put in one beautiful cross, which couldn’t be steered home by McGoldrick.”

“McClean is not good enough. That much of an untouchable, berating other players . Stevens went back at him to be fair. Stealing caps with Hendrick and whelan. ”

“we aren’t good enough. Apart from Stevens and McGoldrick trying to combine it was all frantic stuff.”

“Doherty was excellent going forward and in a 3-5-2 system (similar to that used by both Sheffield United and Wolves) would not be required to defend as much. Such a system would also offer some much needed support in attack to McGoldrick. Stevens has done well at LB but he too would almost certainly be more comfortable playing the same wing back position he does for his club”

“McGoldrick tried to link up with Stevens, in fairness to Stevens he was only just away from playing him in and McGoldrick is our one player with a bit of composure. Stevens himself picked out an excellent ball for the goal. We didn’t need them to become any better players, but just to try and make one chance instead of hoping for a chance. “

“McGoldrick, Stevens and Doherty were our best performers.”

“I thought McGoldrick was dropping too deep to receive the ball , when he laid it off we had no options in front and it was leading us to slowing the play down.”

“Spends too much time outside the box for my liking – maybe thats why he never made it to the top given his other many attributes.”

“If he didn’t come out of the box we would never pass the ball forward in their half. He needs players willing to break past him from midfield, unfortunately we don’t have any.”

“his touch and link up play is very good. but most of the time he has to come deep and there is nobody up front which is part of our problem. not his fault though.”

“Another brilliant performance from Didzy
It’s a shame no one was there to play off him.”

“I thought he was excellent. His close control was very good but not made for a lone striker role”

“Showed some beautiful touches early on, providing the type of linkup play that was sorely lacking in the previous two competitive games. Everything good Ireland did inevitably came through McGoldrick”

“poor fella is fckin wasted with us , if he had a decent striker playing off him we’d get goals galore”

“Raging he is 31. What a player”

“He’s a very good player to be fair but McCarthy’s system demands an awful lot of him. He has to be the target man, come short, run the channels etc. Fairly flogs him and it’s no wonder we were so desperate with Collins in his place last month.”

“How much was he missed for the two matches last month? McGoldrick was excellent in this vital game, winning ball, holding it, moving it around.”

“Didzy. I’m so Didzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And its your goals making it spin”
