“Sheff Utd become the first team to lose 20 of their opening 25 top-flight fixtures.”

“Sheffield United all but down now, surely”

“Sheffield are relegated”

“Sheff Utd deserve to go down, banking on a long ball and a flick on! Glad football won!”

“Not sure why Sheff U seemed to be playing for a 0-0 draw given their dire league poisition”

“I’m surprised that Sheff Utd came and sat right back. Surely they have to win? They gave us trouble at their place first half when they had a right go. Very odd”

“Dear lord, Sheff Utd are absolutely hopeless going forward”

“Don’t want to be too harsh but Sheffield United have their complete second choice back line out there – a bottom of the table team – and Maja hasn’t had a sniff “

“We’re going to do this folks! Championship lovers sit your butts down.”

“From 10 points behind safety to only 3 (for now) incredible.”

“I never saw this coming. NEVER. Speechless.”

“Massive result. 7 points in last 3 games in 7 days. IIf you need to win ugly it is fine by me. It is a results business.”

“Not bothered by the performance, just need 3 points.”

“UUUUUUUUGLY…. Take 3 and run.”

“Kept Sheffield Utd at arms length and took our chance when it came. That’s all you need sometimes”

“Not a pen but fortunate nonetheless. Areola accidentally won the ball with his trailing leg.”

“He got to the ball first – with his left leg.”

“I actually think it was probably a pen, and possibly a red card. The follow through was dangerous. Wonder if he might get a retrospective red?”

“Absolute MUST win or we are toast. “

“We’ll have to be up for the game against them as they will have the wind in their sails now. “

“Alladyce has made our defence worse. Sheff Utd will do a complete number on us Tuesday. We were oh so fortunate to win at our place”

“I’ve thought that from day one. Sheffield United are better than we are. They missed two open goals when we beat them. I fully expect them to finish above us. “

“They are now they are turning performances into wins.
They train properly, run and are organised for a start. “

“I’ve been saying it for most of the season, a number of people in fact have been saying Sheff Utd are one of the strangest bottom of the table teams you can see as they are rarely hammered and are quite often in games, but just can’t score. That is the opposite to us who have been 2nd best in nearly all of our games this season, but do have a knack of getting the odd point.
Sheff Utd are still 10 points from safety – 11 with their goal difference and so won’t be staying up, but they are better than the table suggests.”

“After Sheff Us improvement in the last month – I will be surprised if we avoid 20th Allardyce really fugged up losing the majority of the players on day 1 with his man management. “
“we are a worse side than Sheff Utd “

“They are twice the team we are and they will show it Tuesday”

“I think at this given point in time I’d rather be in their shoes. “

“They also lack ability but they possess a superior attitude, application, determination and seem fit. 4 areas we are weak in.”

“How are Sheff Utd still below us? “

“Sheffield Utd will have a strike force of McBurnie and Brewster next season backed up by McGoldrick and Sharp – 4 players proven at that level, plus Mousset and Burke. If any forward is going to rip up the league next year it will be one of theirs. “

“Oli Burke has done more for Sheff U than Grant has for us “

“Regardless Burke is utter toss. “

“I hope these words don’t come back to haunt us on Tuesday cos he’s nailed on to start.”

“Just because he might score against us doesn’t mean he’s any good. We’ve all watched him play. He’s rubbish.”

“Would have been a brave person to put a bet on Ollie Burke having more goals than Brewster by the half way point of the season! “

“he’s done OK for them this season, Sheff Utd fans have been happy with his contribution in what’s been a shocking season”

“CR9 is head and shoulders above him. “

“I would say it’s Fulham or Brighton for the last spot with us and Sheffield nailed on for the drop. Can’t see us getting more than 1 or 2 wins and a few draws at the most. I think we’ll finish on around 24 points which won’t be enough to escape the bottom three. “

“Sheffield United are down with us. They’re not surviving.”

“We’re not looking like overtaking any of the other contenders – quite frankly we’re trying our hardest at the moment not to fall any further behind them !
We’re down.”

“We’ll finish above Sheffield and maybe Fulham but that’s it for me. The Big Sam experiment is doomed”

“I dont like the PL and I’m looking forward to a bit of a rebuild. However I do of course understand the clubs benefit of retaining PL status.”

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

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

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

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

“Sheffield United are a good team”

“Sheffield United are a very decent, stubborn side”

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

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

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

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

“Good win against a well organised side.”

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

“Always tight against SU. 3 points”

“Bit dull. They defended very well.”

“Great 3 points against the Great Wall of Yorkshire”

“Never looked uncomfortable without ever looking entirely comfortable!”

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

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

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

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

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

“Sheff made it a bore fest.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Such a dirty team”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“That ref was as corrupt as they come.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“The definition of a must win. Our only easy game on paper before January.
It would be typical of us to be Sheffield’s first 3 points of the season.
Tbf to them, they’ve only lost most games by a goal.”

“They are on poor form and struggled to even get a point but let’s not underestimating them, most of the game they only lost by 1 goal difference.”

“Two points was dropped in this fixture last season, the injury time equaliser by Sheffield United probably would be disallowed this season.
Sheffield United have been competitive in all of their home games this season and I expect Thursday to be no different.”

“This will be Sheffield United’s first win of the season. It’s just that kind of season.”

“They gotta get a win at some point and we are the perfect opportunity.”

“I’m bricking it against the most underpowered team in the league this reason, Christ.
Thank god they have Ramsdale in net.”

“They’ve been shocking so far this season – so you know they’re going to roll up their sleeves and become giant killers for the night.”

“They’ve got 1 point all season.
If they double their point tally v us at the very least it’s utterly embarrassing”

“it would be embarrassing to lose against them”

“I have no doubt that Sheffield will raise their game against us (who doesn’t when Utd come to town?)
Even so, we really should be winning this game based on their current form.”

“It won’t be pretty, but we’ll grind out the win as we look to the more interesting fixture this weekend.”

“Expect rotation for this one, we play Leeds on Sunday.”

“Need to use the squad here. Leeds on Sunday will be on a whole another level intensity wise”

“Sheffield United have been so poor this year, so feel it’s a nice one to have on a Thurs, then Leeds will be a real fitness test”

“Points wise, they’re the worst team in PL history so far. However, these are not a bad team. The amount of chances they create, I do not know how they aren’t in the top half, let alone relegation certainties with a solitary point. It’ll be a harder game than Leeds, who’ve seemingly already started to run out of steam. Still need to rotate though.”

“They are bottom of the league so I imagine the bus will be parked”

“I can us struggling to break these down”

“I just checked the league table and Sheff Utd are bottom of the league.
So, we are up against the worst team in the league who have a return of 1 point from 11 games.
Logically, we’ll wipe the floor with these guys, but given that we struggle against worse teams, who knows how we’ll do.”

“Away from home = victory, would love to see that continuing and just look at how abysmal the Blades have been so far.”

“At least this should be a pretty straightforward and easy win. They have been garbage this season, and we’re kings away from home”

“Should be an easy win. We have the ability to smash them but id take a 2 goal difference”

“We should really be putting these guys to the sword. They have been very bad for a long time.”

“These lot are spectacularly fecking shit. As in useless in all areas, attack midfield defence. We should batter these if we play at our best. “

“Sheffield are mid-table Championship quality but I do not doubt we will find a way to make them look good”

“Excited to see the most Championship strikeforce in the history of the Premier League up against Baz Maguire and co. McBurnie will turn into a ginger bearded Ronaldo.”

“I’m hoping these games finish off Ole for good.”

“Surely Wilder’s job is on the line for this match, if they don’t react sooner?”

“Teams invest a lot of money and work hard to get up into the EPL.
Why on Earth are Sheff Utd just passively allowing their team to get relegated.
I don’t think I’ve seen such a passive response to getting into the EPL.
It’s like getting promoted at work, with double pay and instead of working hard to learn the new role and succeed at it, you just sit back passively and fail every task in the job, so you can be demoted back to your old position.”

Scotland Fans Views On Oli McBurnie

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Mcburnie looked knackered”

“Still shyte”

“Never cap that fraud again”

“Mcburnie what does he do for a living ?”

“Oli McBurnie is absolutely utter rancid decayed horse shit.”

“Is McBurnie a footballer?”

“how does McBurnie earn seven figures every year as a footballer ?”

“Mcburnie is just a joke full stop.”

“Mcburnie, waste of space”

“I’d take Iwelumo over that fanny McBurnie. A total gimp of a footballer”

“Why Is Oli McBurnie even in the Scotland squad btw? He doesn’t even know how to pull up his socks, why is Steve Clarke putting his trust in him?”

“!McBurnie is the definition of shite.”

“McBurnie just constantly runs as if hes got sore knees”

“Mcburnie an absolute waste of a jersey.”

“McBurnie is the worst player I have ever seen play for Scotland.”

“McBurnie is 6’2 of pure dugshite”

“McBurnie was £20m. Madness.”

“Oli Mcburnie is a £20 Million player in the premier League and he’s not even better than dykes, who plays for the same team as lee Wallace…”

“His pass completion tonight must he 10%, spent longer on his arse or chasing his bad touch.”

“Oli McBurnie is rotten wouldn’t be dangerous with an axe in his hand ! “

“McBurnie in particular is the face of everything thats wrong with the English transfer market and our outlook…. some idiot paid £20m for a Motherwell level striker, but coz he plays down south he gets picked automatically… shouldnt be anywhere near a Scotland cap.”

“This McBurnie is absolutely brutal i dont think i have ever seen a worse striker looks like he should be playing sunday league or Amateurs feel sorry for Sheffield fans”

“Defenders must absolutely piss themselves when they see they are up against oli mcburnie
.Woefully shite. Wish there was a Sheff Utd reserve game on tonight he could’ve picked over Scotland again”

“He gets stick because up until a video by the SFA, he’s looked and acted like he didn’t get a shit playing for the national team.”

“McBurnie has had multiple occasions where he’s not shown the level of commitment that you’d expect at international level and has had large periods for Scotland where he’s offered little”

“I am going to stick up for McBurnie. Think he’s done ok.”

“To be fair I dont think McBurnie has done much wrong. Just very little service.”

“Amazing how much stick he gets despite the terrible tactics and lack of service. There’s some players in there that seem undroppable but have hardly kicked a ball for Scotland ever!!”

“McBurnie will get slaughtered but Robertson McGregor and McGinn have been useless yet again for Scotland.”

“Every dick slagging McBurnie is a tim? Co-incidence? Naw. Haven’t seen any of these players do anything in a Scotland jersey yet he’s always the go to”

“We won back to back away games in tough grounds. I welcome playing without fans “

“Good win, away from home. Onto Semis in the Fanless Annoying Cup. A grind”

“We’ve been the better team we deserve this victory. SHU have only troubled us on set pieces”.

“Future goat manager gets a win over Chris wilder who some laughably wanted here. We made sheff utd look awful and into the semis.”

“Imagine wanting that plumber Wilder as manager ffs”

“Of course Arsenal can’t handle a straight talking Brexit manager.
Snowflakes.”

“Sheffield United didn’t out play us, they just scum bagged set pieces all game which we struggled with”

“So after this all bollocks about Sheffield United being a breath of fresh air and Wilder being some sort of hobo Guardiola are we all now willing to accept they’re actually Stoke with overlapping centre backs?”

“For all the praise Sheffield were getting this season, they’re just another Stoke City type championship-level team of ‘hard’ men aren’t they?”

“Watching Sheffield today like watching stoke”

“Sheffield Utd only looked dangerous from set pieces. We were largely in control.”

“Sheff Utd have had a mare, not sure Arteta will get so lucky in the next round!”

“Terrible goalkeeping but will take it with grateful hands.”

“Am I the only one that thinks we defended really well? Their two goals were clearly offside. We adapted a strategy of no men on the posts and a high line. On their two goals it worked and bar a Kolasanic hashed clearance we would have had a clean sheet.
The only time we looked suspect was at throw ins where ultimately we had to win the first ball which isnt always posible”

“We created a few chances and should have had more goals when we were on top.”

“We were terrible”

“Absolute crap from us”

“They’ve had more shots overall, more shots on target. Our midfield was over-run some of the first half and most of the second.”

“Totally outplayed”

“Very happy that we’re going to Wembley but the performance is staggering. We used to complain about getting dominated at the Bridge or Anfield. Now it doesn’t matter anymore. Leeds at home, we get whipped. Sheffield away, can’t string 5 passes together.”

“Fluke it FC, Arteta’s men. You love to see it.”

“the team couldn’t even string 5 passes together. We need to have the actual ball to even create a second. All we did that second half is keep giving the ball away, hoof it up only for SU to bring it straight back.”

Pre-Match View From Wednesday



“no pressure on us, Pigs have everything to lose, all pressure on them, they’re favourites but on paper people forget we’ve still got strongest side”

“We had a chance to mug them at theirs if we’d stepped up in the last ten. Their legs and heads had gone at not being able to get a goal.
But we didn’t. Apart from that one chance we sat in and saw the point out.
They’re not all that, regardless of where they are on the league.
Wildpig will get his selection wrong and it’ll be all about winding Hutch and Forestieri up to gain an advantage.
He’ll set it up for Madine to run round trying to be Billy big bollox but that’ll just end up pissing the other Billy off.
If Forestieri plays this right then Bashsam could be getting a bath before half time. If Madine starts I can see him on a card inside ten minutes.
All we’ve got to do is stay calm, play out the initial piggy pashun burst at the beginning of each half, and hit them on the counter”

“I’m quite relaxed. We have nothing to lose.”

“I think it will be the most high intensity derby game in years. I think it will be proper fire meets fire but I’m always going to back a Wednesday win”

“Fancy us to create a mini upset, for the first time this season we look a confident side and are playing without pressure. Think we will go and try to win the game this time”

“They’ll rightly be favourites. But we have to be a lot more confident than the last time we played them.  We’re a different team. We have the quality and enough momentum to turn them over. But they could say the same thing.  All set up for a classic.”

“I’d just be happy to see us in their half”

“Free hit for us this one I reckon. Win and its party time and still with a shot at a crazy end to the season. Lose and it hurts but its not like they’ve ruined our season. We’ve been crap for most of it. Most blades I know are either arrogant about it or overly pessimistic as a shield. Whichever camp they fall into though, this is the game they want to win the most. They hate us and it defines them. Its proper weird” 

“Bloke I work with, a Blunt, said two weeks ago ” you Pigs are gonna get a right hammerin’ “. Couple of days ago it’s down to ” think a draw will be okay “. Told him we’d see on Tuesday morning. He said ” can’t I’m taking the day off”.  Wonder why.”

“It’s the Bruce effect. They were all giving it the big un pre Christmas. Now a little worried. 3 I know we’re all getting tickets and boasting how many points they had. Not one em’s got a ticket.” 

“Two neighbours of mine are suddenly not so confident. Both of them predict owls to win.”

“Must be worried there might be a repeat of the ” Mind The Gap 2012 ” season if we beat the scrubbers on Mon”

“If they beat us it’s Se la vie, if we beat them it’s the end of their season, be a handy three points for us though in our last attempt to reach the play-offs, wouldn’t it be nice to beat them then?”

“if we win or lose we’ll still be in Championship next season, massive pressure on them, look what a defeat to them did to our season back in sept 17. We can’t say there’s no pressure on us because we are the home team in a massive local derby, but in terms of league position the pressure is on them. I’m nervous, but not as nervous as the away game this season as I was adamant we’d get pumped, now we have Brucey in charge we have a great chance, I just hope we play with the same intensity as Tuesday, for me that was a great performance & I think we have to be at that level if we want to win as we all know how much they’ll be up for it with Wilder & also the fact they have the full LL end now!”

“Unsure how any pig is worried. Guaranteed play offs, strong contender for automatics. If we beat them, it would be an insignificant blot on their season if they go up.”

“Are the pigs ready for fessi hutcho bannan Hannibal…Jesus going to be some passion on the pitch”

“Tell ya now if we beat those pigs we’re in the hunt”

“No bugga wants to go up – well look out we coming for you UTO”

“I’m just gonna say what everyone’s thinking, we beat Sheff United Monday and the playoffs are on”

“A win on Monday will be fantastic especially if it dents their top 2 chances. Anything beyond this  is a Brucie bonus.”

“If we don’t make the playoffs then we can forget about promotion this season.”

” They can have the promotion and we’ll have the 3 points – that’s the real quiz.”

“Wilders strike force are journeymen to be fair. Both Sharp and McGoldrick haven’t scored many goals at this level for anybody else. He knows how to get the absolute best out of his resources.”

“I think it will be the most important game of blunts season. Can we kill off there promotion hopes again?”

“we cannot kill off their promotion push, but we can damage their confidence. I predict Wednesday to win and United to promoted”

“they were taking a top 2 finish for granted with 12 games to go in 2012……”

“If pigs manage to keep this form going, they will deservedly join Norwich, but while i can see them doing that, i can also just as easily see them tailing off when it matters, they are due a bad run, most other sides have had a few. in summary, there is a load of crap up there compared to the 2 seasons we had a run at it, had we timed it better, this last 2 years would have been easier to get up had we kept our $h1t together.. “

“I think they’ll get automatics now. Leeds look absolutely spent, and West Brom have looked all over the place when I’ve seen them recently. Monday is huge pressure/test for them though, as they need the win. Mess up and these things have a funny way of derailing a season.”

“They do seem to have an annoyingly strong mentality. The Villa capitulation would have broken some teams but they just bounced back with a couple of decent wins. “

“Sadly I think they’ll go up even if we beat them now. Easy run-in, Bristol C and Leeds aside. WBA and Leeds losing form and everyone else too far off. “

“United will win the league. Only thing I can see them not going up is a mental breakdown affer we’ve beaten them, or heavy legs/small squad starting to hit and hit soon.”

“Think top 2 will still be Leeds and Norwich. United to finish a close 2nd and actually do it this time in the playoffs. Anyway who’s bothered if United will go up? Yes they’ll be unbearable but after getting stuffed 5-0 by Man C, Liverpool and Spurs there spirit will be broken, they’ll go down comfortably and McCabe will take their parachute money for ‘safe keeping’.
They’ll go back down and waste their money like they did last time. “

“I think it’s a demographic thing why there fans are classless scrubbers”

” United sold 30,000 at the Lane in the last Steel City Derby, who were and still are pushing for automatic promotion. Wednesday are expected to sell 31,000 at Hillsborough a team who’ve had a boring and dull season. ‘SUFC are a bigger club than SWFC.’ Jog on.”

“Just like to congratulate Sheff Utd for selling a few more tickets than you originally got. Really impressive when you’re pushing for promotion and 3 miles away. Phenomenal support”

“Their hardcore support only just sold out for their table top clash with Norwich recently. “

“They only usually take 1,645 anyway. Should be loads of tickets let”

“They’re always moaning about how they hate Hillsborough, they trip over themselves to get here though. The Lepps too good for them” 

“This giving the pigs extra tickets is shocking. Don’t blame chansiri really for taking the cash but it’s shown our so called fans up for what they are though gloryhunters”

“Wednesday should have sold out for united match easily! Where is everyone that went to wembley and arsenal match?? Sick of seeing united fans wanking them sens to death because they are bringing 4000. they didnt even sell out when we last played and it only holds 32.000 but we should have ”

“We’re desperate for cash. If our fans aren’t buying the tickets, sell them to them. You should be questioning our fans, not DC.”

“The money from an extra 1600 tickets is hardly going to ease FFP
I’d have given the c**ts 1 ticket less than they gave us “

“Let the oinkers rain piss and coins down on top of their own after watching their team unravel before their eyes” 

“There were 30,261 at the sty, what’s the odds there were still be more at ours on Monday despite their feeble complaints?”

“3 horse race now for top 2 or still 4 and possibly boro ?
Leeds away Friday is a must win imo if not be play offs “

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

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

“The worst indictment is that Sheff Utd wanted it more. They were half a yard quicker all night.  We just cannot help ourselves giving goals to the opposition.”

“I’m actually disgusted by that performance, we looked like amateurs”

“So obvious it wasn’t working in midfield, all game we was overrun, all game we played it into the midfield and put ourselves under pressure. Automatic is done…over

Our home form is an embarrassment.

Why can we not win at home? Why can’t we build up a head of steam?

Why do we make the same mistakes every home game and nothing changes

I’m fuming tonight….”

“One of the worst performances I’ve seen. Absolutely clueless throughout, from start to finish. Just shocking. Before fans start with the “not Moores fault”, the man tells them to pass out from the back every time. Our players don’t know what to do. Sheff utd had time to pass and move, everything.He either doesn’t know how to change or he won’t. Pathetic. ”

” Pathetic absolutely pathetic performance that, completely void of all ideas all on the coaching staff. We’ve had about 3 games all season where we have performed well for a team with the supposed quality we have in it that’s not good enough. The home form is now a genuine problem. Playoffs at best and we’l get done over by Pulis. “

“One of the worst performances i’ve ever seen from a midfielder from Barry, lost it almost every time he had it, couldn’t pass, caught on it anytime he tried to dribble, provided nothing in defence. Been good most this season but that was an absolute shocker. “

“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. “

“We made a good well organised championship team look better than they are really but again not surprised. Just scratching my head. Fair play to Sheff Utd . They look much more like a team than we do. “

“Sheff Utd had a weakened and makeshift defence tonight and we haven’t laid a glove on them. We’re getting worse going forward and the defending is as shambolic as ever. That’s automatics out of the window. Can’t see past Norwich and Leeds walking it now. Time to start looking for a proper head coach, away form the only thing keeping him in a job.”

“I thought Sheffield United were a decent side, nothing special based on tonight but also dont think they really got out of 1st gear it was that easy for them. They thoroughly deserved to win and to be fair you can see why there fans were so confident as they are a better team than us, i dont like them as a club but it would be good to see a team who plays that way go into the premier league as they have a go. “

“Players had very little passion today and 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”

“I don’t actually know if Shef Utd are any good, as they didn’t need to be against us. All they had to do was work hard, press us when we had the ball knowing that we would eventually pass it to them. A solid, workmanlike performance which sees at least one team promoted every year, such as Hudds Town and Cardiff in recent years. “

“Thought Sheffield United were a dirty bitty side only interested in gamesmanship and time wasting. “

“Sheff Utd in fairness were excellent for the first 30mins with the way they knocked the ball around.  After that they were pretty garbage”

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. They stuck to their game plan while Barry and Harper had their worst performances of the season. Got themselves in front after a mistake then through a combination of 11 behind the ball, diving, rolling around, gamesmanship and time wasting held us at bay. Not how I’d want to win but each to their own. Fleck’s a dirty little t**t too. “

“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”

“Sheff Utd definitely looked fresher than us from the start. Extra couple of games because of the cup and replay and the QPR game on Tuesday seemed to take their toll. Maybe because we finished the game at their place on cruise control we expected it to be the same. “

“Our fans claiming that Sheff United were average is just completely ridiculous. Why? Because they didn’t spank us? We were poor but they played us absolutely perfectly. We could still be playing tomorrow and the game would finish 1-0″

“Sheffield United pounced on with an energetic but disciplined display, credit to their fans who were superb throughout but unfortunately I can’t say the same regarding our fans, some need to learn how to take the lows not only the highs!”

Pre-Match View From West Brom

“Massive game this is, we need to win. Don’t really care how, just need to win”

“Think it will be a cracker and we will come out on top.”

“This is a massive game for us, win this and I think we’ll get automatic promotion. I always love beating Sheffield United to be honest (much prefer Wednesday) especially 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.”

“Billy Sharp is having a great season, he is my biggest concern.”

“The Blades fans are quite confident aren’t they?
Funny they weren’t so happy a week or so ago when they threw away a 3 goal lead in 9 minutes. Expect us to smash them on Saturday, horrible little club that doesn’t deserve to be anywhere near the premier league.”

“As Leeds, Sheffield United, Bristol City and Norwich (2nd half away and 1st half home) know when we play anything like we can no team in the league can live with us and as per the above, that includes the top teams as the results show. Out the top 6 we have only lost to Middlebrough (twice) so far but with how football works that was always going to happen with it being Pulis. The issue we have had is consistency, as everyone keeps pointing out we probably do have the best squad in the league but football dont always work like that, if it did Man United wouldnt of been halfway down the premier league a few weeks ago with the players they have. If we play to our best and Sheffield United play to their best we will beat them comfortably same as we would every other team in the league as past results show. That is not being arrogant and there is no saying that will happen, your not always at your best and different factors play a part, i think saturday will be a hard game and i wouldnt be surprised if it ends up a draw.”

“I like Chris Wilder and i think Sheffield United are a good team, however i dont like them as a club, never have, much prefer Sheffield Wednesday and i am not too sure why they are so cocky and sure about winning, they may want to recall the game at their place when after the first half hour they barely got a kick, we won at a canter despite it only being 2-1, we controlled the game relatively easy. “

“Just been on their forums and wow are they deluded! Someone said on there we are a top 10 Champ team and that’s it.
Can’t wait to stuff them on Saturday and then see what they say!”

“We have the better players so should win but it doesn’t always work out like that.  No reason why we can’t put 4 or 5 past them, even Villa managed 3!”

“Any team that concedes three goals in 10 minutes to a Villa team without Grealish probably shouldnt get too cocky. “

“Sheff utd showed against the vile that they have a soft underbelly”

“Have you noticed that most of the other managers say that we should be top because we’ve got premier league players.
They’re sort of saying well we should lose but if we win its a great victory.
Gets on my nerves trying to be a win win for them etc”

“Anyone remember first home game of the season after relegation in 1986, when Shef Utd were the visitors for a night match. Only time I have ever seen away fans in such numbers in the BRE.”
