Loan Updates

All in all, December wasn’t great month for the Blades out on loan. Sam Graham is back at United following a disappointing spell at Oldham, along with Jordan Hallam who only started 3 games for Chesterfield due to injury. Ben Heneghan has also been injured as have Ricky Holmes and Samir Carruthers at Oxford United. Regan Slater is fit but didn’t start a game over the Christmas period and he isn’t featured here either.

Fleetwood Fans Views On Ched Evans

“Did not get a sniff but like Madden worked hard and worked hard defensively too.”

“Like Madden worked his socks off and was cool as ice when it came to the penalty in front of the loud away support. Another good shift.” “Won the penalty and the coolest man in Highbury to slot home the subsequent spot-kick.”

“He will get at least 20 this season”

“16 I reckon, Madden 20”

“I actually think our front 3 are having a great season, Evans and Madden are class acts along with Hunter”

Barrow Fans Views On Rhys Norrington-Davies

“Norrington-davies was immense”

“Norrington-Davies might be more likely to break through at Sheffield United than Smith”

“He’s got a real chance of being a top, top player.”

“Man Of The Match today”

“Superb cross for the goal”

“Norrington Davies has got to stop that cross coming in, instead he gives the player space to deliver the cross”

Notts County Fans Views On Nathan Thomas

“I think he’s improving every game. After showing occasional glimpses of his quality earlier in the season, he seems to be backing it up with some work ethic.”

“Possibly his best game in a Notts shirt. Big threat going forward but worked harder off the ball than I’ve seen, typified by his pressing which led to the second goal. Not been a fan but no qualms about him starting when he plays like this. Great work for the penalty.”

“Thomas closed down and harried all game which made a massive difference to his all round game and us. He’s probably on the ball for around four minutes in the game so it’s crucial to physically get in oppositions face for the other eighty six minutes and to try and have some effect with the ball for those brief moments. Today he did and if he keeps it up as part of that front three we won’t have to defend deep for large spells of the game.”

“I found Thomas to be quite frustrating at times”

“Thomas has shown flashes of skill.”

“With 1 goal from about 60 shots, he must have set a new low for chance conversion so at least he’s had an impact.”

“I sometimes wonder what would happen if we had another winger who was a better version of Thomas”

“Thomas is dreadful, he missed a one on one today that would have saved us.”

“waste of a wage. Looses the ball, hides when we are in possession.”

“Thomas in-particular endured an awful cameo, blazing one decent chance over and twice giving it away in key areas.”

“Well you might as well brought me on. A very genorous 1/10”

“Send him back”

“Frustrating as he is, I’d keep him until the end of the season”

Queen Of The South Fans Views On Callum Semple

“Came to the club when we needed a CB urgently.
Has been fantastic from his trial game against Hearts to the result of our season so far at Inverness today.
Strong, Calm, excellent in the air and on the floor.
28 appearances and over 2000 minutes played. A successful loan signing if ever there was one and let’s hope we have forged a good relationship with Sheffield United to attract further loan players.
Will follow his career with interest.”

“Absolutely, a terrific loan signing and complete success. The boy is as strong as an ox but he will need to be up against some of those giant forwards down south..Comes from Scottish parentage so might be capped for Scotland even if it’s at least the under 21’s.”

“He’s never put a single foot wrong since he’s been here. Young lad and slotted into this level looking like he’s played for years. He’s got a bright future ahead of him.”

“Sheffield United are third in the English Championship only 4 points off the top. This team would be extremely difficult to get into at the moment. I reckon going onto another loan at a higher level than us is probably correct”

“Both Callum and Queens certainly gained from his loan spell with us and I wish him all the best for the rest of his career wherever he may finally end up. Hopefully he does not go back to Sheffield simply to warm the bench as that would surely be a waste for this talented prospect.”

Bury Fans Views On Caolan Lavery 

“Was really good – showed intent and an eye for goal. The silver lining in today’s grey cloud!”

“Bang goes the myth that he wasn’t going to play a part thus season once back from injury.  Could be just what we need as we reach the stage where the squad needs refreshing.”

“Excellent today. “

“Really impressed with Lavery. Quickly got into the game, looked lively, found space and took his goals well. A contrast to the gutless, aimless display given by both Byron Moore and Nicky Maynard.”

“Lavery is one of those players that is in the right place at the right time. Good work rate throughout.”

“Lavery is a useful player but he does his best work on the floor. However, he is a good option in the closing stages of games.”

“Lavery is a good option and think he will be vital if we are to sustain a promotion push.”

View From Barnet

“One of the best results in the club’s history.”

“My best moment in 25 years following the bees get in there”

“Our greatest FA Cup moment. The only other 2nd division side we’ve beaten in the FA Cup was Colchester Utd in 2007 but that was at home and the Blades are a much bigger club.”

“The best experience supporting Barnet since winning the Conference in 2005. Well done the team, the management team and 996, now voiceless, members of the Beearmy. COYBs !”

“Am ecstatic !!! So happy for everyone at the club, we’ve had such a horrible few years….and now this”

“Actually crazy, like wtf. Non league beating a team that could potentially be prem next season.”

“We were composed, kept our shape superbly and attacked with no little flair. Cousins didn’t have that much to do apart from that amazing save at the end.”

“Brilliant performance. Totally matched them and kept calm and held our shape throughout. Showed great composure to keep the ball and didn’t resort to time wasting tactics. Wow. Awesome performance.”

“Just for the record, I don’t care that Chris Wilder made 10 changes for this game & that his and Sheff Utd’s priority is obviously promotion to the Premier League. Barnet are wallowing mid-table in the Conference & they are on verge of Premier League millions. AND we were away”

“84 places between us and the Blades!”

“Sheffield have only lost once to non league and that was to Altrincham so in their fans words has the potential to be the most embarrassing in their history.”

“What a fantastic performance from start to finish. So glad we came. Nice touch to see some Blades fans clapping the Barnet team off.”

“Class from the Sheffield United fans for the credit they are giving Barnet! Best of luck for the rest of the season”

“Fair play to all at Sheffield United. Just weren’t up for it on the day. All the best for the rest of the season. Hope to see them in the Prem next season. It’s just the magic of the cup”

View From Blackburn

” 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.”

“God 3-0, that’s a drubbing from the position we were in. When I checked and saw 0-0 and an extra man, I had a feeling we would win 1-0. Christ this is getting annoying ”

“We cant defend leads in 90th min. We cant even score against 10 men, We have no ideas how to attack 10 men even when we have 11 men. The mentality in the team is so wrong. “

“We have an advantage, do nothing with it, and then everything falls apart. Our results are becoming all too predictable. “

” Today’s game in a nutshell. 11v11 comfortable. 10v11 well in control. 10v10 imploded. Serious Lack of confidence in the squad when we concede”

” I stand by mowbray did the right thing today regarding the line up. I haven’t seen the game so no comment there but players had a chance today and blew it. Whether down to tactics, substitutions, player quality or desire to surrender like that is not acceptable. A loss was virtually inevitable , to lose by that margin something drastic is wrong. “

“No team when 0-0 Against 10 men should lose by 3 goals and counting. Not even amateurs. Shocking. “

” Against 10 men again and we play for a point. Any other side would go for it. Getting boring now. Constant negative tactics.”

  “Constant passing at the back ain’t gonna worry Sheffield”

” 70 minutes of solid hard work undone in under 15 minutes. Terrifying thing about Rovers is the speed with which we collapse. “

“Pathetic, weak group of players & manager. Thick as pig shit the lot of them. “

” We had that game there for us and then we ended up bottling it. “

” Weird game. First half I thought was 1000% better than the stale old shite we’ve been watching since the QPR game. Smallwood was having a great game, Travis and Reed were providing the urgency we usually lack in midfield and Rothwell and Palmer were inventive on either flank. Without unduly threatning Brereton looked a very mobile outlet and at half time I was very happy. Second half the worst thing that could have happened was them going down to ten. We seemed to lose all our urgency and started to knock the ball out aimlessly sideways and backwards as is our wont. Still no major need to panic at that stage though. However I thought the manager got the subs completely wrong. If he was bringing  Brereton off, Graham needed to come on and taking Palmer off was really harsh as he’d had a good game I thought. Armstrong came on and started on the right wing then floated about a bit and barely touched the ball. With Dack dropping deep the changes left us a goal down and no-one up front. “

“Mowbray went with a brave team who took the game to Sheffield United and then made unnecessary changes. You would think we were at man down at some point in that game such was the capitulation. We went from being in control to an absolute hammering and it was the result of the changes. “

“We seemed to have held our own, they were down to 10 men. Smallwood, and woeful substitutions (again), have done for us. “

” Can we be anymore pedestrian in possession. Never a red card, ref was dying to even it up. “

“I’d like to see the sending off again. Smallwood may have gone in slightly studs up but it was a split second thing and the referee who’d been getting the bird off the crowd couldnt seem to wait to pull a red out and even it up. “

“Watched our red two or three times – some matches it wouldn’t even be a yellow (especially when you consider earlier Sheff Utd challenges). However Smallwood is stupid to give the referee the opportunity – which you could tell he had been waiting for by the speed he got his card out (good referees give themselves time to process what they have seen).

“He dived in to a stupid tackle that he didnt really need to make taking both one of their players and Bennett out ”

” Smallwoods ridiculous challenge was clearly meant as revenge on Sharp for his foul on Travis moments earlier. Given how Travis was banished from the team after his stupid sending off last season, I’d hope the same is applied to Smallwood. “

“Totally unbelievable.  Smallwood damn fool. “

” if Smallwood hadn’t got himself sent off today, we would have definitely only lost by 2.”

” Joe Rothwell in the last 2 games: Leeds away – His lazy clearance invited more unnecessary pressure which led to the winner Sheff Utd away – Dived in the box which allowed them to counter and score their second Can’t say I’m a huge fan yet “

” Dean Henderson’s still a monumental bellend”

” Thinking of the two Sheffields, I much prefer the Wednesday one… “

Pre-Match View From Bolton

“Defeat at Middlesbrough means we have failed to win away in our last 37 games. Saturday’s trip to Sheffield United will come 1,000 days since we won 3-0 at Cardiff on April 6th, 2015”

“we’ve played 104 championship away games since relegation, won 16, drew 27, lost 61.”

“We will win away again in this league eventually.”

“I’ve been to countless matches under Parky’s reign and been quite mortified by the style of play. I don’t deny that. But can you honestly say that with this group of nobodies – loan players that haven’t started shaving yet, cheap freebies, etc. – he could give some other strategy a go, and if it didn’t work, everybody would stand back and say: fair play, we tried something different, we’re still shit, we’ve just gotta see out this season and let Parky start rebuilding again for League One.”

“You massive knob. Against Sheffield Wednesday we were superb, the game could have gone either way but we won and created a shitload of chances.
The players have proved they can do it, but Parky still insists on this spoiling tactic THAT DOESN’T FUCKING WORK.”

“If he actually tried something new and we started to actually play a bit of football then i think most fans wouldn’t give him any more shit than he already gets if we did get relegated.
What do we have to lose? All this blind optimism that we just keep doing what we are doing and it will come good is just wishful thinking, we’ve had a bit better form of late but we are still in the bottom 3 and as i said we have little actual goal threat.
People will just not pay good money to watch us at the moment so KA is deluding himself if he thinks people are going to turn up to watch us play route one and start with 1 striker and 2 holding midfielders at home.”

“Can’t see much from this sadly”

“I can see a dam good thrashing for us.”

“Another defeat looming here”

“Just enjoying the day out and anything is a bonus”

“Just been reading some Sheffield fans saying we can’t be worse than Sunderland hmm….”

“Sheff U win 9-0, Ken Anderson sitting in the home end shouts, “your support is f*cking shit” to the away end.
10 minutes delay added on at the end, due to a Beevers long ball entering orbit, getting Parky aroused into the process.”

“I am now at the point where the actual away game is spoiling a day out on the beer, especially in this weather. Strangely though, I fancy us to take something from the game.”

“Personally think Sheffield over rated if we go for it think we can win it 2-3.”

“We wouldn’t score 3 if they played with 9 men and no goal keeper.”

“They have lost their early season form. We can get a draw”

“When they were flying at the start of the season and we were losing to nil every week they only scraped a 0-1.Bolton to square the ledger and nick a 0-1 themselves.”

Pre-Match View From Millwall

“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 shit & your wife’s a slag’ 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. “

“G should be for grasses after them getting slapped in deptford and bubbling people up.
Northern wrong uns.”

“another big game and big away following. gotta love the championship.”

“Sadly can’t see us scoring. Hope I’m wrong”

“We were awful again on Saturday, no cutting edge and I despair at the way all our attackers take the pace out of any attacks and check back in.

“Fulham were marginally better than us and we deserved a draw. Note, we were marginally better than both Hull and Sunderland, it’s all about margins.”

“To be honest it’s like Groundhog Day.
Every match we play we get out passed and nearly every match we play we have less possession than the opposition. It was the same last season and it will be the same next.
However, we still show energy and create plenty of chances. We are basically a team of Division One players overachieving”

“The fact we have less possession, yet in most games create decent chances, and some games more chances and better chances shows how piss poor football has become. Too many teams play this shitty boring possession game of keep ball, usually at the back, its tedious.
I wish we had two decent wingers that we coul spread the ball out to, tell them to whip some early crosses in or go at the full backs, proper football, far more exciting than that possession in your own third shit. “

“Its not that we are unlucky all the time,
We are missing that bit of quality upfront,
We didnt invest in the summer and it shows.”

“It’s not all doom and gloom. Williams is back in training, Wallace is back from suspension. Harris is targeting a CB in January. And every season ticket holder receives a free packet of fruit pastilles at this Saturday’s game.”

“Mahlon Romeo and Jed Wallace could be reunited on the right flank for the first time since the League One play-off final”

“a deserved point”

“deserved the point at least”

“we came to spoil and frustrate them hopefully pinch something on the break. Almost executed perfectly.”

“Cotterill got it right. Despite our players still being incapable of passing the ball.”

“Fantastic battling spirit and work rate though, virtually faultless effort wise but terrible technical wise for most of the match.”

“Not bad by any means compared to previous efforts but the passing was very poor.
Great work rate, desire and effort which is the first battle in staying up though.
Could have rolled over at 1-1 easily.
They didn’t and that’s a big positive.”

“people are hard to please. Played the team in third, who have scored the second most goals in the league, away from home and more or less made them look a bit impotent, albeit while looking like a team of mostly runners, tacklers and blockers, with the occasional glimmer of better stuff.”

“That performance is being praised. What a total shambles.
We couldn’t pass wind never mind a round thing called a football. “

“I thought we were absolutely dire again and apart from Boga’s superb strike it would have been another warranted 90 minutes without a goal. Absolutely no-one appears to be able to control or retain possession. We are ponderous on the counter attack which is concerning when we have around 35% of the possession. Dean and Stockdale were the only ones who came out with any credit.”

“Sheffield United wont finish in the top 6 this season. In fact i reckon they will finish below 10th and we played like we were facing Barcelona”

“Sheffield look a limited team who play to their strengths.”

“You’re right. Should have hammered them.”

”I assume that Clarke would’ve been Morrisons responsibility to mark but he was nowhere near him and check Jota out…he was around 10 yards to Clarke’s right, ambling around marking no one
Ffs, he is their leading goalscorer so I’m sure they must’ve been told do not let him have time on the ball at all costs…He had an age to line up
And don’t start me on Morrison turning his back when the shot came in
That said, it’s a point away so am relatively happy but it could’ve been 3”

“The time that Best had to line up their goal was embarrassing from a defensive point of view.He had an age to just wait for the cutback with nobody within yards of him.Apart from that they didn’t really create that much for all their possession and it should have been 3 points.”

“Criminal from Jota.
May as well have been wearing a red and white stripy top when that goal went in.”

Burton 1-3 Blades

 

 

“Just back from the game. First thing to say is I thought the scoreboard looked fantastic.
Anyway, onto the game. No complaints whatsoever about the result as they were better in all departments with better more confident players. A bit like the Barnsley game where for 10 minutes we looked the better team but with the oppositions first attack they score.
We then get back in the game after half an hour or so(great goal Matty) and then concede within minutes with suspect defending. Great through ball by their number 21.
Second half we looked slightly better and then concede again with poor marking.
I’m not going to complain too much for fear of being branded anti Nigel which I am not but I have to say that the defence tonight were woeful. As if the opposition scoring easily is not bad enough tonight was one of the worst performances in terms of distribution I have ever seen from a professional team at this level. I really feel for the rest of the players as they chase hopeless balls(you can’t call them passes) which are just aimlessly punted forward. The difference between them and us in terms of composure was immense.”

“So they are top of the league?
Thought we showed them far too much respect.
All they did was pick up our hoof balls played out from certain defenders,play the ball back and start again.
We made it to easy for them.
They were definitely not the best team to come to the Pirelli this season!”

“Yes Sheff Utd are an OK side but after the barnsley game I along with a few others on here made our comments about the team and the mgt. After the Millwall game we were criticised by a few saying we should eat humble pie. Well I said after the barnsley game that some of our players are past their best Warnock should not be at the club yet alone playing, Clough left him out at millwall and we won yet for some bizarre reason played him tonight.Buxton too slow.I said Matty Palmer should play.Well how good is he our best player by a mile tonight..that proves my point. Where are the two Toms. Flannagan played at milwall oh and we won and as for Naylor what has he done wrong.yes Nigel is restricted with the players we can get but that is no excuse for playing players who are past their best or not good enough.that is solely Clough’s fault.”

“Yes it was bleak and depressing. I believe we have been unlucky with the injury to Boyce and his replacement Mason and as a consequence I think it was always going to be tough as we simply do not have a goal threat at all or anybody to hold it up. I’ve said it before but it needs to be damage limitation until January and then hope that we have identified some young guns who can make a difference and score us a goal or two. We don’t have too many to choose from but I do think tonight Nigel and the management team got it wrong with their selection and formation, maybe paying Sheff Utd too much respect and trying to nullify them tactically. What a tough job they all have currently though in trying to work a second miracle.”

“Really wish nige would look at changing more personnel. Too many balls wasted, kicked out or just lumped up field aimlessly. Lost count of the amount of mis kicks and poor passes. Very few positives tonight. Shite ref tho. “

“Too easy for the Blades tonight, once they went ahead”

“Shame about the result but what could we expect top of the league. SUFC got their tactics spot on, but we actually put a good performance in the second half.”

“Time for change stubborn clown won’t change it so it’s time to get someone who will”

“ forget your bust ups clough and do right for the team”

“He picks his faves”

“had a winning team last match so played the usual losing bollocks”

“All in all, Clough is continually playing players who are making mistakes and not helping the team or himself. Woeful.”

“Duffy proving what a good decision it was by NC to let him go! Lacking quality, pace & tactical nouse. NC undone all good work done by GR & JFH imo”

“That is ANOTHER loss. Fans can go on about our good defensive away performances but the number of goals being conceded at home is atrocious. Frustrating too when there are better players on the bench (e.g. Naylor) than the numerous liabilities in the starting 11”

“As for Clough, says we were beaten by ‘better, good, confident team’ – but acknowledges his side are struggling for confidence “

LOAN UPDATE: Doncaster Fans Views On Ben Whiteman

“He was absolutely excellent”

“Whiteman says he prefers that more forward role.”

“He’s a good young player who will improve his all round game I’m sure.
Like a few players we have, perhaps have more going forward than defending but it’s up to DF to manage that balance.”

“Whiteman is very highly rated at United..I’ve been talking to a number blade customers,who always ask me how he was getting on..Bloody awful this last 6 weeks I tell them….Needless to say they all blamed us and are now worried we are destroying what they seem to think is a premier league player in waiting….If he is he’s disguising it very well…If the window was open he could go back for me and swap him for a fullback…”

“Whiteman is another who is highly rated but if you had been watching him over the last month you certainly wouldn’t think so…”

“Ben Whiteman should be going back to Sheff Utd in January for me, really struggling to see what he’s bringing to the team. He’s not a holding midfielder, he’s not creative enough just behind the striker, he just doesn’t get stuck in. He’s got a good shot on him but doesn’t use it enough”

“Takes ages on the ball and generally doesn’t look comfortable unless he’s in acres of space.”

“Whiteman simply hasn’t been what we hoped”

“The continued use of whiteman baffles me.”

“Whiteman is another player that plays consistently out of his best postion”
