“An even game. Chances for both sides, with the Blades having the more dangerous ones, but after starting slowly, Wolves took hold of the game.”

“A deserved point for Wolves; May feel unlucky not to get all 3 points. We threw the kitchen sink at it after about an hour and created plenty of chances but credit to Sheffield Utd who dug deep and created chances of their own.”

“If the Blades had been better at taking their opportunities we might have lost this game by three goals such was the ease with which they cut us open in the first 45 mins. We were poor, very poor and there was no crispness to our play.
We can make excuses about playing in that quagmire on Thursday but ultimately Sheffield were good value for their point. They’ll leave Mol. knowing they could have done even better. They faded after we scored our equalizer and I’m still bemused how VAR is working at there is every chance Jimenez was offside on the build up. Normally we’d see a bigger delay in giving the goal but it seemed to happen very quickly.”

“Overall, don’t think we deserved a point but showed great character given how many games we’ve played recently and Thursday’s exertions. Sheff Utd played well and Wilder has done an incredible job given the resources available to him.”

“They were brimming with confidence and we weren’t at our best so to come out of that with a point is a good result”

“Fortunate to get a point against a well organised Blades who also played with some flair going forward.”

“Do not underestimate how good a point this is. Sheffield are a good side bang in form.”

“All in all, good point as Sheff Utd should’ve put us to bed long before Doherty equalised. Saying that, we looked the only team likely to win in the last 20 minutes.Sheff Utd, as we already knew, were well organised and full of energy. Some of their interlinking play as they break forward is excellent. Suspect they’ll remain in the top 10 this season.”

“They could have put the game out of reach in the first five minutes of the second half, so I’m happy with a point.”

“Take nothing away from Sheffield, they played very well, but their finishing really let them down. We could have lost 5-2 on another day”

“Blades should have been out of sight after an hour.”

“Not really – Patricio made a couple of good saves today, but nothing you wouldn’t expect him to make. And then we were constantly on the attack for the last half hour. Jota woke up a bit in the last ten which helped.”

“We actually made them look better than they were for much of that first half with our sloppy play but bossed the second.”

“Pretty gutted to draw that.”

“disappointing, but we cant have complaints, werent good enough for the win.”

“We looked leggy throughout. Not surprising, made worse by the fact we were up against a big, physical side, a kind of superior version of Stoke under Pulis.”

“Fair play to Sheffield United, they are good side and what a job their manager has done. Having said that, I actually think they may struggle if they get a few iffy results. Their players are playing well above themselves, thriving on the confidence and momentum they have. I thought they were poor after we scored today and they did the same against United last week. Unlike when we were promoted, it was clear we had Premier League quality players. McGoldrick, as just one example – but there are many more in that team – is not Premier League quality. He is a perennial Championship loan man, but absolute credit to him and his manager for what they have achieved this season (so far), but I do fear for them when the going gets tough.” “SUFC, like us last season, were an absolute credit to promoted teams from the champo. Some of their football today was very good and they might count themselves unlucky not to have been out of sight before we got the equaliser. Although, has to be said, they were very cynical with their off the ball stuff. Sad to see that creeping more and more into the game and, ironically, a tactic used by teams managed by Englishmen, SUFC today, Bournemouth last week. Remember the days when we used to frown upon the Italians and South Americans playing like that? Referee bottled a clear second yellow and therefore sending off for the SUFC right wing back, who must have watched old videos of foreign teams from the 70s and 80s with that off the ball on Jota, in the second half. Anyway, that’s not to distract from how well they played.” “You can see how Blades got themselves out of the Championship and why they’re giving Prem sides a problem, they have the classic components that you would look for in a newly promoted side – fast, in your face, direct (which is not to say they lacked some skill as they didn’t), a physical edge that borders on brutal/cynical, very well organised and they work as a unit very well. If they had better finishers to be honest the game would have got beyond us at the start of the second half.”

“Tough side and after that first half, and also our start to the 2nd it’s a good draw although the overlying feeling is one of ‘we should have won’ and also the cynicism of the Utd fouls leaves a bad taste in the mouth, as does the inability of the ref to punish them as we should have been playing again 10 men those last 10 mins. Pathetic refereeing again”

“I thought Sheffield Utd played well. They break similarly to how we do which made it a very interesting game. They could and probably should have been 3 or 4 up by 55mins so we could count ourselves fortunate and shock… As an away side infront/happy to take a point they used time-wasting and generally ****house tactics, we have all been there. Sheffield Utd will cause teams some issues. They are doing better than what we were at this point last season so on reflection I am happy with a point.”

“I’ll take a point playing against 12 men.”

“Sheff Utd are a good team, but boy are they cynical. With a half decent ref no.2 would have been off and probably no.4 with the number of fouls he committed.” “What a cynical bunch of cheating, fouling, diving c***s they are, aided and abetted by an absolute cock of a referee. Deserved a point but could easily taken all 3.”

“F**k this everyone’s favourite plucky underdogs tag. Sheffield are as bigger bunch of counts as Bournemouth on today’s evidence” “I’ve praised Wilder and United all week, I take most of that back, I thought their tactics and style was utter gash.
they didn’t take the game to us like promised and if we’d have had a fresh Raul and Jota we’d have scored 3 today.”

“I read their forum yesterday, have to say they’re the most precious fans I’ve come across. Saying they don’t play good football was a sin. Couldn’t believe Yorkshiremen were so touchy.”

Norwich Fans

“I was wrong about Sheffield United, they aren’t going to be in a relegation fight”

“thought Sheffield United were fantastic yesterday, no I don’t wish we were them, but by God they gave man u a rattle.”

“Sheff U are superb today”

“Man Utd poor but I feel that is down to the way Sheff Utd are playing…cutting up play, closing down players quickly etc”

“They look like a real team, whereas Man U look like 11 individuals who have just been thrown together. All credit to Sheff U and Wilder”

” They berate everyone for time wasting yet do it so much themselves and now it’s cost them “

Aston Villa Fans

“I do wonder with Sheffield playing the same side every week that they might tire out at some point in the season.”

“I’m stunned by Sheffield’s start to the season tbh, I didn’t think they were anything special at all last year, but Wilder has done a cracking job.”

“I look at Sheffield and on paper they should be nowhere near where they are – Chris Wilder is a fantastic manager and they don’t fear anyone. I wish we had their mindset and their resilience, unfortunately we go ahead against one of the so-called ‘bigger’ teams then concede 2 goals in the last 10 minutes to lose the game. ”

“Good game shef united deserved a draw”

“They got 1 more point out of that game than we would have”

“Sheffield United are brilliant to watch. Love seeing them do well. “

“Sheffield Utd are so well set up they always want it more. Proper team”

“you can see that is a good refined side that’s been put together with time and patience. It’s what were are missing is time and patience and hopefully we can pull it together because sheff utd are absoloute staying up and they deserve to the way they are going after these teams and shutting them down. “

Bournemouth Fans

“What an entertaining game of football.”

“Some similarities between them and us re players coming up with them through the leagues and a close knit group. Could Wilder and his team of not expensive buys be one of the surprises this season? Long way to go yet.”

“It’s well documented that Wilder has unashamedly used AFCB as a role model to his players in respect of coming up through the leagues together. perhaps in a few years they will be like us trying to replace those golden oldies and maintain that togetherness and team spirit.”

“See a few clubs do well in the first season but then get found out as clubs realise they need to give them a bit more respect. Done great job so far and wilder calls it as it is in interviews.”

“They have the attitude our side had first season in the Premier League.”

“Mousset looks like a completely different player from when he was with us.”

“really impressive from Mousset.”

“Let’s not re-write history re Lys. Thought he looked great in 16-17 season and often came in and had an impact. Last season he was awful. Maybe leaving us has re-focussed his mind. He wanted to leave and turned down a contract here I believe as wanted to start first team games. He suits a different style of play than Solanke in any case. “

“And Mousset may have improved BECAUSE of the time he spent and what he learnt at AFCB. EH always said Mousset in his long future plans but he became restless for more game time and left”

Brighton Fans

“I am jealous of Sheffield United.They may still fall away but for the club that have just come up they are doing incredibly well.Surely they can’t keep this up can they.Not 1 Billy big bollox star either.”

“Really? I think they are a bunch of cheats and I’m surprised the FA or the premier league haven’t acted. Billy Sharp died in 2011 after being viciously attacked by Lewis Dunk. Yet there he is in their squad and coming off the bench to play. How can a dead man do that, eh? Clearly he is possessed by some supernatural power, giving them an unfair advantage. He probably imbues the rest of the team in his evil spirit, too… “

“can’t help but be a bit impressed.I’m not unhappy with where we are but I would rather be where they are and some of the results they have had.”

“Hull did the same in their first season till teams worked them out but by then they had enough points to stay up which is what they have now”

“Great match, Sheff Utd were excellent.I slo-mo’d the last gasp equaliser and thought it was handball, not the ‘shoulder’ bit that VAR focused on but that he used his hand to guide the ball onto his thigh, then onto his shoulder before volleying it in.”

“Norwood impressive in a very dynamic Sheffield United.”

“how on earth did we let him go was it just because he coloured his hair ?”

Watford Fans

“Their home form has been slightly less consistent than their away form losing to Southampton, Leicester and unluckily Liverpool. They have been really tight at the back allowing them to take chances on the break.”

“The way people talk about Sheff Utd is they are some great footballing super power. I take it you didn’t go to the game? On the day they were very ordinary and we should have beaten them and would have if we had decided to attack them…..IMO.”

“The reason the reaction was so poor to this supposed miraculous home draw against unbeaten away specialists Sheff Utd is because we were whank. And they were dire too. They offered zero threat all game but we just sat off them. It was pathetic and they were there for the beating and the fans knew it. “

“Maybe Sheff Utd were poor that day but games before that showed they were more than capable and certainly games since then have backed this up. So far they have shown themselves to be a very decent team and we should not look back on that as a wasted opportunity. In fairness, given the seasons we’ve both had I imagine they are more disappointed not to have won than us! “

“Mousset was a Bournemouth reject – now he is flying at Sheffield United .Maybe shows how well Wilder is doing .”



Newcastle Fans

“Greatest comeback in the history of Manchester United DENIED.”

“Cracking game. Very glad ManU didn’t win.”

“Tbf Sheffield United are playing well this season. An away game there isn’t easy. “

“Shows where Man U are as a club now though. Whether Sheff Utd are in form or not they should win that.”

“It wasn’t just Man Utd’s result yesterday or the fact they looked like losing for a good while.  The performance other than a 10 minute spell was dire.  Sheffield Utd had them pegged back for long periods and Man Utd couldn’t pass the ball to each other.  Neville wasn’t being OTT with his criticism.”

“Mousset is a completely different player to the one at Bournemouth.”

“Man U could have had Ballack and Pirlo – it still wouldn’t be enough to combat the genius footballing mind of Chris Wilder – the greatest manager on the planet.”

West Ham Fans

“Mousset is an example of a striker who may not be blessed with all the talent in the world but certainly puts himself about.Great signing for them”

“As much as it pains me to say, Sheff Utd look impressive. That Mousset is enjoyable to watch. Never stops working and has a bit of skill and a tidy brain to go with it.”

“The whole teams works hard, they are organised, their midfield gets a foothold in their game etc. They do all the basics that are required for a team to at least function properly. Everything we don’t do…”

“No fancy dans, just decent hard working intelligent players.Makes me sick to watch to be honest.”

“Sheffield Utd are everything we are not. Look at them chase back to defend the counter, incredibly organised, every player playing to a manager’s plan and giving everything.”

“sadly Sheffield United wont be going anywhere soon as they now have a lot more money to spend since their takeover.”

“People thinking we can get Wilder as our next manager are on another planet.”

“Sheffield United are just like many sides that come up. Have a reasonably good first season, get found out and relegated in the second season. Chris Wilder is an OK manager but not the man for us. I’ll have a wager that Sheffield United go down next season.”



Crystal Palace Fans

“I know its early days for them but they are doing well, I think Chris Wilder is doing a great job, in his interview he puts it down to, Brave tactics, shrewd signings and no egos. Hmmmm”

“Yes they seem a tight knit club with everyone pulling their weight .They must be delighted with their start which might be just enough to save them from the drop come later in the season when they have a long spell of losses. Like us many teams are thinking how did we loose to that which will be rectified in the return fixture .”

“Often happens in a promoted teams first season, however they normally get found out in the second season and get relegated.”

“They were great for about 70mins against United. Absolutely dominated them but then seemed to tire a bit at the end. Showed great character to still rescue a point. Their style of play is enjoyable to watch. With their all action style I wonder if they’ll tail off due to fatigue/ injuries etc in the second half of the season. Fair play to them though. “

“Went to Palaces game at Bramhall Lane which we lost 1-0.Have to say they deserved the win and their fans certainly were up for their first game in the Premier.Seem to be like us in lots of ways Real football ground, good honest support. ”

Leicester Fans

“What. A. Game. Deserved equalizer. At least for all that fighting spirit. Well done, Sheffield United!”

“SU are the new kids on the block and they play very much like we did 2015-16, defend well, close down early and get the opposition on the break. I think we will find it hard to beat them when we play.”

“Thank god Sheff Utd managed to pull out an equaliser, they are a very likeable side that are great to watch.”

“2 points dropped by Sheff Utd”

“Went to get a beer and I can’t believe they dropped a two goals lead in ten minutes. That’s Arsenal level of bottling. Fuming.”

“Must admit I’m getting rather bored of hearing about oVeRlApPiNg CeNtRe bAcKs”

“I cheered that last Sheff U goal almost as much as one of ours!!” 

Burnley Fans

“And that’s why the PL excites,bonkers game”

“difference in Sheff Utd since Mousset went off is incredible”

“One man team,shite arnt they,banged on to go down”

“Their fault for going defensive when they were well on top”

“Norwood had a cracking game.”

“Impressive start from Sheffield”

“A good team can beat a side of exceptional individuals. Utd , like Arsenal, are a mess. Sheff U on the other hand are a prooer team. We disnt turn up at Bramall Lane, but they still took no prisoners. I, like everyone else, thought they’d finish bottom, I’m happy to be wrong. It’s great to see another team performing on a shoe string, and rubbing the big boys noses in it. The only area I would put them ahead of us is they seem to have pace all over the pitch, which is always helpful in the Prem.”



Wolves Fans

“Going to be a tough game next week. Sheff Utd are a cracking outfit.”

“Actually wish it was Man utd rocking up at Molineux next week rather than Sheffield”

“Man Utd making the Blades look like Real Madrid.”

“I think it is more Sheff Utd making Man Utd look like Southend”

“We’ll have to play extremely well to beat Sheff Utd next week, I’d take a draw personally, they really are excellent.”

“They have left a lot of room in the full back area but luckily for them today James and Rashford decided not to try and play. Our front 3 will be put in more effort so we should give them problems but it is going to be a very tough game”

“For all SU possession, they didnt really create much even in the first half.We will need to be physical across the midfield and hopefully our quality upfront will tell.”

“If they switch off against us with 20 mins to go they’ll be in trouble”




Everton Fans

“We should look at Sheffield United!! Really look at them!! Players playing with passion for their manager and each other. It’s not about highly paid, players who cost a fortune, it starts with passion. It’s where we need to get to and build from there… “

“Whenever I want to watch a “Proper Football Game” I watch games like Leicester yesterday. Or, Sheffield United right now showing some fight against Man Utd. I don’t know WTF I’m watching when I see my Dear Everton FC!”

“fair play to Jags he’s still got pace and positional sense in buckets, cannot believe Silva never gave him another year when we needed more cover at CH, well actually that’s a lie I can understand why he’s a useless manager.” 

“Jags and Lundtsram are better off in Sheffield at the moment “

Arsenal Fans

“What makes Sheffield work is that they have a lot of mature heads. All their attacks are with purpose. Not like Arsenal where you throw it into the box and hope for the best “

“This Sheffield team is amazing. I’m sure they would beat arsenal at this point. Wait..”

“Sheffield United play better football than Arsenal football club. And you think AFC ain’t a joke! Oh please!!!”

“Emery looking at Sheffield United and thinking: that is how I want Arsenal to play. Protagonists EVERYWHERE”

“It is a shame that small club like Sheffield United play better football than Arsenal this season.”

“Is it too late to start supporting Sheffield Utd?


Chelsea Fans

“that is one crazy game”

“Man Utd couldn’t handle the pace of their 2 strikers”

“Remember when all rival fans tweeted us that Match week Chelsea drew 2-2 with Sheffield United?”

“if I were an EPL manager, this SU team plays exactly how I would want my team to play”

“If Sheffield United scored that goal against Liverpool then that’s being given as handball.”




Spurs Fans

“Great game. Would have been a travesty had MU won that. “

“This game is crazy! I keep thinking we’re playing!!!”

“I wonder how long the Utd players will stay fit. He keeps playing the same group every game, the are going to break by Christmas.”

“I wonder if any clubs will try and pinch Wilder?nEverton might give it a go. “

“I would if I were them. He’s Easily a better manager than silva”

“Fleck isn’t too bad. I like him”

“The Sheffield United players thought they had the game won and took their foot off the gas, you can’t do that against any PL club, especially against a united attack who have the ability to cause problems and score goals. “

“Var finally makes a good decision.”

Man City Fans

“That was a great game of football”

“Very impressed with Sheffield, — they play football as it should be played and the league is better for it. “

“They play really neat stuff Sheff U. Genuinely think everybody will struggle at Bramhall Lane”.

“credit to Sheff utd they’ve been brilliant as some have already posted we will have a hard game on our hands when we go there,the scousers got a flukey win there due to a goalkeeping howler ..”

“Honestly the blades could have buried them,2-0 is NEVER a safe lead”

“Sheffield blew it but united had nothing to lose at 2-0 and got lucky.”



Liverpool Fans

“Sheffield United are mentality monsters themselves, they’re a band of absolute warriors. For a promoted side to show so much mental fortitude is unbelievable, God knows what Chris Wilder tells them. Game of the season, for me.”

“He probably tells them they were brilliant when they were brilliant and tells them they were shit when they were shit. Doesn’t hide behind press officer or try to con the fans. It’s how it used to be.”

“No lies!!! They’ve been our toughest opponent this season and were really unlucky to lose to us. Chris Wilder deserve massive credit.”

“Chris Wilder is one of the best managers ever, fam he got my hometown promoted with some dead wood players”

“John Fleck was arguably the best player on the pitch against Manchester United, he’s been the most underrated midfielder in the Premier League this season”

“Mousset is good aswell”

“A crazy match. We deserved nothing from it, but were unlucky not to win it”

“Crazy game, crazy result. Feel a little deflated to be so close but to let it go at the end. However, it was a game where we were battered and should have come out with 0 points but by some minor miracle we scavenged a point so it’s not a disaster at all.”

“Sheffield United bossed us throughout”.

“Souness referring to Sheff United as a throwback seems a bit lazy and disrespectful. Think they might be the most tactically innovative team in the league and playing good stuff.”
“They are a very good side at their place”

“A draw is harsh on SU who dominated for large portions of the game.”

” credit to Sheffield for the unrelenting pressure they put on our midfield.”

” Getting dominated by fecking Sheffield United”

“those seven minutes aside, SU were all over us, dominant and bullied us around.”

“We were absolutely bullied by a far better TEAM. They cared. They wanted it. They won and kept nearly EVERY BALL. Fair play to them. We are a million miles away from where we need to be. Still not Ole out but I’m leaning….”

“Sheffield United had better quality and outplayed us. How can that be?”

“SHU were the better team for most of the game”.

“Sheff United will be seething with themselves for allowing us back into the game when they were 2-0 up, theyre going to feel robbed today. They completely played us off the park for 70mins or so”

“Sheff Utd have got their best ever side, are going great guns, and we’re well, well off our best.”

“Game of two halves, and probably a fair result”

“Sheffield almost blew it. If we won that game it would have been a travesty for them”.

“overall first half was terrible. Sheff allowed us back in the game. I am not convinced.”

“Don’t let the comeback or those 10-15 minutes fool you. We were piss poor throughout.”

“it’s kind of a good thing we didn’t pull out a totally jammy, undeserved, flukey win to extend Ole’s stay of execution yet again.”

“Absolutely diabolical performance. We were completely dominated by a team that has only four players that have ever played in the Premier League before.
The comeback was completely lucky. Winning that game would have been the epitome of papering over the cracks. Awful.”

“How is Sheffield able to score 3 against us? Embarrassing”.

“It’s Sheffield United for the love of f***.”

“Who are 5th, in good form and ran us off the park for an hour”

“When we decided to actually attack, they looked a newly promoted side.”

“Sheffield are better coached than us, Wilder has been at the job since 2016 and they have a squad of more mature and experienced players.”

“thought we were the better side throughout the entire second half, we looked much better when Lingard came on/the change in formation so felt their second goal was kind of against the run of play (albeit they should have been further ahead by half time such was their first half domination)
At the end of the day it’s a tough away game against one of the better sides in the league”

“Do think we were the better team through out the second half. The 2nd goal was Perreira feck up but, we started well and eventually our change in formation allowed to get at them more. I even told my mate, 3-2 soon as they scored. Was confident.
VAR can go do one. Yes, red-tinted glasses on and tin-foil hat is truly fastned on but, that 3rd goal of theirs, if that’s Liverpool, it gets chalked off.”

“The result is fair, but VAR missed a handball.”

“Robbed by VAR.”

“Sheff United 100% deserved something from the game but your bicep is part of your arm.”

“Not sure how the goal wasn’t disallowed. Hit the arm, hand ball and I expect the decision to be consistent”.

“I’d love to see where we’d be this year if VAR wasn’t shit.
Scored three goals away to the second best defence in the league.
They score one legitimate goals against us. And then it fecks us. Clearly hit his hand. Clear push on Jones”

“Didn’t deserve that point but will take it, I guess.
Awful performance minus a 15 min spell between minute 70-85
VAR got that McBurnie goal decision spot on”

“Come on….. handball against Sheff Utd? The guy practically placed himself into a Kimura lock just to avoid the contact with the ball and his arm. No logical person could possibly conclude that it’s a fair handball decision. The goal stood, rightly so.”

“”No issue with the VAR decision , the video was inconclusive so I think it was right to let the goal stand”

“Well at least I can say I’ve enjoyed 5 minutes of football this season”.

“Wow Sheffield Utd can play football….
Their movement and workrate absolutely destroyed us in the first 10 mins…. their movement is brilliant finding space and pulling our players out old position and their workrate off the ball to turn over possession is superb”

“They’re 6th, haven’t lost away all year, they beat arsenal, drew away to Chelsea and only lost by one goal to Leicester and Liverpool and deserved more in both games so yes I’d say right now they’re a very good side, just because they don’t have big flash signings and we’re recently promoted doesn’t mean they can’t be a very good side, watch them play, they’re so well coached and have a very effective unique way of playing. I don’t think they’ll keep it up all year and that’s where teams like us can take advantage over the course of a whole season but right now they’re a good team and we are a mid table one trying to get back to the level we should be.”

“Just watch the movement off the ball between the two sides when in possession…. its light and day.
They are constantly on the move, offering options and making our defenders work their arses off to get a foot in or even get a glimpse of the ball.
We however, are static standing behind players and slow in transition/possession allowing them to get goal side and make our avenues for passes limited.
Doesnt help when we cant make simole passes to feet, but they are making it harder for us, while we also contribute to the dificulty by poor movement and workrate…”.

“Impressed with the blades. They played with an intelligent and aggressive high press. They were positive and played with high energy. They played how we used to play when we barnstormed our way into the top 4.
As for us now, we look like a lumbering, half knackered legends 11 playing a pre season charity match”

“Forgetting Tottenham for a minute (I really wish I could) Sheffield United were superb today and should have won. I really thought they’d struggle to stay up this season but they’re a strong, well drilled team that deserve credit.”

“Credit to Sheffeld Utd, great perfomance. Like a team possesed at times.”

“They played some great football and showed far more dynamism in final third than us. Should have had 3 points today – outplayed us”

“Hadn’t seem them before today, absolutely brilliant football side, one touch football was a joy. Reminds me of NI national side, creating a team better than the parts.”

“They’re everything that we used to be not that long ago.”

“This Sheffield side reminds me of Spurs 3 or 4 years ago. Very high press from a very fit team”

“It was like watching old Tottenham, going to better teams with no fear pressing the life out of them and having unity between fans, manager and players”

“Thought they were superb. The organisation and work rate was top notch. They can play a bit too”

“They were excellent and miles the better team” “Sheff United are just fully better than us”

“Sheff Utd are a good team, people are underrating them”

“sheff Utd are a top top slide this year so given that we are still finding our feet I definitely can see the positives.”

“Good point against a team that is better than us”

“it’s worth pointing out that Sheffield United are really good right now. Like, surprisingly good.”

“The worst thing about today was that they were miles better than us in every department. Before this season 90% had never heard of the their players.”

“I know sometimes we have a slow start to games, but to not start playing until the 86th minute is taking the piss. An undeserved point”

“The scary thing was we only scored from a mistake and they could have scored about four and had one disallowed and scored a good goal. Basically we should have got a bit of a hammering today.”

“Our fullbacks are terrible. We literally have zero threat provided from them. The Sheffield backs were far, far superior.”

“We could do worse than Wilder imo. He’s the most impressive British coach i’ve seen for a while.
I think Sheff U’s problem is a lack of individual quality still. If they’d had that then they would have absolutely put us to the sword today”

“Scoreline flatters us in a game we were well and truly bested by a team who has no business coming to our patch and playing us off the park.”

“ we struggle so much against bus parkers. We piss away the first 45 minutes pretty much every time. Today we played alright in the first half but no end product and then after breaking the deadlock we just stopped playing. Sheffield United for the first hour struggled to get out of their half but in the last half an hour could have won it.”

“They didn’t park the bus. They pressed the hell out of us and we couldn’t play out of the back”

“We were playing a team with a championship side, all be it well drilled. We were CL finalists 6 months ago, now look like a league 1 side.”

“Out fought, out thought and out played by Sheffield Utd
The low points keep getting lower”

“Giving it to those Sheffield wankers after var was euphoric.”

“The worst thing about today is that Sheffield looked like the better team for most of the game and it was us playing at home. The VAR decision was ridiculous and almost gives the impression we won a point today instead of losing two”

“That was absolutely shite!!
Getting schooled by Sheffield United.
As for VAR. I’m about done. I was watching on some American stream and the woman at the end had to explain about the fact VAR for offside is black and white, not clear and obvious and that the people watching should remember the VAR team are human beings and shouldn’t take any slating. That’s how bad it has become.”

“Getting lost in the result somewhat is the fact that our goal came from a defensive error and United had a goal chalked off due to the stupidity of the VAR offside check method. We very easily could have, arguably should have, lost that match.”

“What a joke VAR is. Of course I’,m happy that the goal was disallowed, but to be judged offside after hours of checking – by the thickness of your boot leather is stupid.”

“We drew today with Sheffield United at home 1-1 and received one point. In fairness we lost 1-2 but thanks to VAR that will forever be forgotten.”

“Out fought and out thought” “A newly promoted team playing football. It is possible Sean !!!

“It’s a sad day when we stop seeing Sheffield United as relegation rivals during their first season in the top division. That’s very worrying in itself”

“November and we have already given up on teams like Sheffield United”

“beat the ones around us and don’t worry about the top 6, which includes Sheff Utd.”

“A shocker.. but can’t take anything away from Sheffield United. Chris wilder spot on”

“Firstly – well done Chris Wilder – what a good manager he is and what a fantastic job he’s doing. Reminds me of our first PL season under Sean but with a cutting edge. That being said they will find the second half of the season far tougher than the first so they need to rack-up as many points as they possibly can before the turn of the year.”

“I thought they started very impressively, but it’s concerning that we had no clue how to deal with them and that basic balls in the channel caused complete mayhem. They’ve been playing the same way for a good few years. We’re also fairly useless against a midfield 5. Note that no strikers scored today.
I think we should acknowledge that they were excellent but it doesn’t make me feel any better after that.”

“Sheffield realised our full backs were the weak link and exploited this to the fullest.” “There are bad days, and there are bad days to be fair.
That was a bad day.”

“That was one of the worse performances I have seen from a Burnley Team.”

“0 shots on target. That is pathetic.
Worryingly can think of multiple games just last season that this happened. Istanbul, Wolves and Man City at least from memory.
That is the worse stat of all from today.”

“When teams like Sheffield United,a newly promoted club have sussed out your weakest links and expose them for what they are,have after all this time Dyche and his tactics have been sussed by everyone,we never mix it up,a weakness everyone has sussed,we made them look like world beaters today in that first half”

“They are not exactly mugs and have surprised pretty much everyone this season. Mixing it up is one thing but not getting used to an opponent with an unusual set up and making basic errors is why we lost today.”

“We were completely overrun in midfield”

“We never once drove at the Sheff Utd back line creating an angle, an overlap or taking a man out of the game.
We looked slow, weak, ponderous and lacking in any sort of an idea.
It’s not over reaction to say this has very much been coming.
We are a very reactive side, who dont change personnel or tactics regardless of opposition.
We dont seem to exploit weaknesses the opposition may have, nor do we try anything different, and by that I mean approach play, free kicks, corners etc.
An extremely poor day at the office, and if we dont change the starting 11 and/or approach soon it could prove very costly.
Final point, can we please look to improve the first 11, it’s been 2, maybe 3 windows where we haven’t moved forwards in terms of quality or style regards with people we bring in, in the starting 11.”

“I had to endure this in the home end and it was embarrassing to hear the opinions of the Blades fans on us, and I didn’t blame them at all for what I heard.”

“We have the worst style of play in the league by some distance. There is little to no variation either and we are all too predictable.”

“I’ve read a few comments saying how good the Sheffield players were today.
On the one hand I agree with that, they were excellent and played with full commitment and lung busting stamina to meet the demands of their playing script.On the other hand our tactics ( or lack of them ) made it very easy for them. They simply had to turn up and do their regular job against a team that offered no surprises. “

“This was as bad as I’ve seen us under Dyche, all 3 goals were poor ones to give away, especially the two just before half time that finished the game off.
This result was more about how bad we were than them being any good and some changes need making.”

“Absolutely terrible performance by the players. Embarrassing for the club. Do I get a refund for my ticket and travel.”

“More than dreadful feel gutted”

“Sheff Utd were also sh1t so not a good show at all”

“Wade Elliott scores ten year ago tho”

“Much the better team and should have won.”

“We would be winning these games If we just shot more.”

“2 dull teams, boring”

“a better side would have buried us there”

“Sheff utd are a rubbish football team because any decent side should have slaughtered us today.”

“4-1-4-1 formation at home to Sheff Utd. Another poor performance and embarrassing result” “A draw is embarrassing.”

“First half was pretty turgid. We matched them for effort (which I didn’t believe we would) and had a lot of possession and field position without really doing too much threatening. It was notable how much time they were wasting and how many times they fouled Haller in particular but also anyone else they could with almost no protection from the ref and few fouls given. The time wasting was odeous as well. Second half they had to come on to us and it meant we had space to run into and created 4/5 chances that should have resulted in at least one goal, After that the theatrics returned, rolling about, throw ins that take 2 minutes, throwing the ball away to stop us playing it. All endorsed, allowed and facilated by a ref who occasionally blew his whistle at people but declined to enforce the laws an book anyone.”

“Baldock should have been second-carded twenty mins ago for screaming foul and abusive language on the touchline and dissent / intimidation of an official.
That tactical foul on Haller was shocking – would have liked to see the ref give a straight red for tackle from behind with studs up.
I really hope the FA crack down on these snidey fouls. They ruin the game as much as anything.”

“Appalling run of results. Home defeat to Palace. Awful away defeats to a League One side and team in the bottom 3, and now can’t beat Sheffield Utd at home.”

“I find the first thing I have to do is say congrats to Sheff U. They carved us open on at least 6 occasions but weren’t clinical enough in front of goal. With the one exception we saw repeated instances of great chances going straight at our keeper or being blasted wide. Depending on your perspective you can say that Sheff U were wasteful or that we rode our luck big time. Three at the back worked well for Sheff U”

“A point is a fair result in the end.”

“Thought we were awful and lucky to get a point.”

“blades far better side second half”

“we were cut open with ease”

“Frustrating as hell, but props to Sheffield. Make it tough to find a gap or clean shot.”

“That’s the most shot on target Sheff U have had in a game all season and they missed the target twice from 8 yards out… I’d give Pellegrini a break if we were playing free-flowing football up the other end but we aren’t. We have good individuals but a rather poor team right now”

“Sheffield deserved their equaliser. a point at home against a newly promoted team that had more significant chances than us is a problem ”

“great one lads, we almost looked like a championship team this time

“we looked like a championship side”

“The standard set by the captain is just laughable. I’ve never seen such a slow, lazy tackling performance from him over a number of games. John Fleck ran towards him today and did half a dummy, then just strolled past Noble like he wasn’t there. Yes he makes the odd good pass, but he’s done.”

“I bet Haller would have scored 7-8 more a season playing for Sheff Utd. They can actually cross the ball”

“Chris Wilder wudnt accept the level of effort and desire shown by us if he was our manager…a lot of our lads need a kick in d hole badly

“Pelligrini is utterly useless. A lot of money spend on a tosser. Chris wilder owned him”

“Anyone else amazed to see the amount of people in the stadium wearing West Ham / Sheff Utd half and half scalves? Absolutely baffling.”

Norwich Fans

“Impressive from the blades”

“They look very solid at the back unfortunately.”

“Blades have been very good, wont be troubling the rele spots unfortunately”

“They really aren’t very good though. They are exceptionally well drilled and good at defending but Arsenal were pathetic in the last third (had their final ball not been a joke they would have won that) and I will still be disappointed if we finish below Shef U.”

“They’re only 6 or 7 injuries away from being in the shoite.”

“Hate the feckers”

Aston Villa Fans

“I’m still amazed Enda Stevens is a regular for them. Was s*** for us. “

“Sheff United are a championship team that massively over achieved last season and have manage to continue it in to this season with hard work and team spirit. It won’t last and they’ll go down.”

“Solid defensively but they are nothing special.”

“The few times I’ve seen them play they actually quite remind of the way Wolves play, sit deep and are very hard working, but are comfortable on the ball as well and dangerous on the break.”

“Have to say whenever I catch a TV game of theirs I enjoy watching Sheffield United. Like us they will stay up as they’re decent at both ends. Respect Wilder plenty and he really makes that 3-5-2 work. Of course they can knock it long when required but they are also very capable of playing quick 1-2s out wide quickly which means with their overloads their wide players get plenty of space to get crosses in. They build up plenty of corners from that tactic and eventually they score from one. We’ve also struggled defending against them in last two seasons. At the other end they also have more grit than Norwich who are simply too easy to score against. I said in August they were most likely of the promoted trio to go back down and haven’t seen anything to change my mind.”

Bournemouth Fans

“Mousset scores. Mings plays for England. Bit Weird. They obviously fit in square holes”

“Part of my frustration with Solanke is we lost Lys… who I thought was a better player. We also never gave him the run of games we have afforded Solanke.”

“Whatever you think of Solanke I think you’re looking at Lys with Rose tinted spectacles. Average player.”

“Even Solanke wouldn’t have missed that tonight.
Solanke has looked far more effective than Mousset ever did. “

“Leaving Solanke aside and just talking about Lys I always thought he had so much potential. Blistering pace and shot and good awareness of team mates. Funny how we all see the same players in different ways!!”

“I liked Lys but he put on weight every year, not in a good way and never really took his chances when given them.”

Brighton Fans

“ Fair play to SU but dear me Arsenal are shocking”

“Blades brilliant tonight. This is a tough division, no shit sides. Pundits saying division is weak because Lpool so far ahead. Bollox. Most competitive top flight ever.”

“It’s easy to write Sheffield United off (and all the lazy pundits have) because they’re a small and unfashionable club but if you actually watch their games you’ll know they’re a fantastically managed side with an effective style of play. “

“We certainly have better players but they look so much more solid than us.”

“Wilder is doing a great job on that budget imho.”

“They are like a better version of a hughton team very very impressive every time I’ve seen them this season. I can’t help but think their style will get them more points than us even though we are nice to watch
Olly Norwood as well. Excellent. Mistake to get rid in hindsight.”

“They have some Hughton traits but overall I disagree with that. I think they’re a much more energetic and dynamic team than we have been in the last two seasons. I think they play with no fear, regardless of the opposition, which is great to see. I also think they have a far more ambitious and occasionally expansive style than we had. All on a minuscule budget. As long as it’s not at our expense, I hope they stay up as I think they’re a great example of what can be done if every man buys into the manager’s plan.As for who will get more points, I’m not sure. I’d probably just about back us. But as I said, I don’t think either team will go down. “ “Should beat these two any day of the week”

“Arsenal are a joke team away from home. Every single team in the division would expect to beat them at home. “

Watford Fans

“Another record signing misses an open goal v Sheff United.”

“Many ‘experts’ say Arsenal are going to finish in the top 4. Why do they think that? “

Newcastle Fans


“I honestly think Sheffield United will finish bottom of the league.  They are hopeless. The Toon are crap yet I wouldn’t have one player from Sheff Und.   Billy Sharp is their star player ffs. ”

“ Sheff Utd are hopeless? 9th in the league and unbeaten away from home I think. Billy Sharp is not their star player, he doesn’t even start for them.They don’t really have any star players but play so well together as a team”

“Mad, I don’t think Sheff Utd are in any real danger of going down.”

“Strange post saying they will finish bottom”

“They don’t have Steve Bruce in charge, as an organised unit they look easily better than us.”

“ Christ if Sheffield United are hopeless what the hell are we? “

Southampton Fans


“had that been us instead of Sheff Utd, then we would almost certainly have still found a way to lose to them.”

“Sheff Utd have fight and endeavor along with playing some very decent football, which IMO will keep them up. “

“4 points behind Sheff Utd and Burnley at this stage of this season tells you everything you need to know about us. Average teams on paper but they have fantastic workrate and organisation. Something we’ve lacked for years. We currently dont have any identity in the way we play”

“We got quite lucky against them. Our defence was all over the place and we got a letoff with a disallowed goal, a non-penalty that should have been given to them, and a pretty harsh red card.
They worked hard all game (harder than we did) and were unlucky to lose it really.”

“Watched a different game sunshine. They were sh1t and got fck all”

“Sheff Utd have a really, really low quality squad. But they’re organised and put in a lot of effort. It just shows there’s really only 2 great sides in this league.”


West Ham Fans

“Every time I see them they are very well drilled, energetic and combative.”

“This lot don’t have much quality imho although what they have is a system that they’re comfortable with and players giving their all to the cause.”

“They did a proper park the bus job against Arsenal.Could be a frustrating afternoon for us.”

“We play quite similar to Arsenal, so that was a bit of a wake up call. But can they raise their game twice in a week?”

“Actually feel better about this Saturday after the pigs beat Gooners tbh.”

Crystal Palace Fans

“Watching Arsenal tonight they look very fragile with Blades not afraid to take the game to them. Watch us barely lay a glove on them until they score”

“They don’t like it up em but are a different side at the library”

“Arsenal were dog awful tonight,keep thinking if Sheffield had a Zaha they would have won by more.”

Leicester Fans

“Remember when a lot on here were expecting us to go to Brammall lane and play them off the park in a 6-0 win?  Doesn’t quite work like that. Great result and performance from SUFC. Decent result for us too.”

“we’ve scored 2 of the 7 goals Sheff Utd have conceded this season. Pretty neat isn’t it?”

“On paper their side is Championship standard but Wilder’s management brings the best out of them, as we’ve seen so far this season he expects a lot out of them, even in the games they’ve lost and played well in, Liverpool for example, their performance got praised but he was having none of it, he was pissed that they didn’t get a result. He is obviously a manager who sets high standards, his team matched those standards tonight. I can see many sides having difficulty against them this season. Hopefully Wilder can keep them up.”

“Wilder says it how it is. Really struggling to pick any fault with him.”

“They aren’t going anywhere.  As I said after their match with us – where they flat-out deserved a draw – Wilder has them so well-organized and full of belief that they’re going to stay up for sure.  They’re limited technically but not punchless – for a lower-table side they have enough industry and flair to get by.  And they aren’t afraid of possession, either, when the moment calls for it.  Good manager, serviceable squad.”

“Eddie Howe came up with Bournemouth with a bunch of lower league players (many of them still there) and he has stayed up comfortably ever since whilst playing much better football than Sheffield United. I like Wilder but they are hard to watch. I hope he doesn’t become another Sean Dyche in this league.”

“You see plenty of players/coaches come up from the championship and do alright in the short-term but struggle to stay at the top. I personally rate Dean Smith as a better manager but that’s just me.”

“There’s an art to man management and he has done well everywhere he’s been but he’s also had little expectation on him and not had to win people over that much. I’d love him to replace Southgate but could envisage he’d be hounded out eventually.”

Wolves Fans


“Sheff Utd prove that organisation and a game plan are plenty good enough to be a decent PL side. They’ll be fine. We’ll struggle against them, organised, strong at the back and bullish up top”

“No doubt we will beat arsenal away as we will have chances, still cant break down utter shit”

Everton Fans

“ Nothing against Wilder, it’s good the game(in this country) has some English coaches doing well. Please though no more flavour of the months.”

“said before this fella is a modern day Mike Walker.
Hes doing a great job with the blades under a lot less pressure than others (or so it seems).
Hes maybe happy at his club.
Nothing wrong with being ambitious, if he were to leave,while his stock is high.”

“Sheff U were very poor against us at Goodison, one shot on target and won 2-0. They were abject, we were poor. They got lucky”

“Wilder the modern day Sam Allardyce, Sean Dyche. He is doing well getting points on board but the football is horrendous. Could you really watch Everton play like that week in week out? It is football that can only take you so far in the PL”

“Man who doesn’t want much football. They were great to watch last season”

“chris wilder doesn’t play anything like fat sam or dyche tbf, think they play decent football”

“They’ve played some great stuff moving up twice in three years.
He’s had to tighten things up because he’s taking on some of the top teams in Europe with some players who were in League one a couple of years ago.
Look at how thorough and innovative his tactical planning is.”

“this seasons Wolves”

“They’ll go on a run of about 10 games without a win at some point this season.”

Man Utd Fans

“Have to say I really enjoy watching Sheffield United play.
It’s not passing around for passing around sake (unlike their opposition tonight who wanted to get their possession stats up in last 20 minutes). They can knock it long when they want to but they are also capable of playing good quick touch football when that is required and they don’t get enough credit for that. It won them several corners tonight and eventually they scored from one.
Reason 3-5-2 is effective is they actually make it work overloading in corners of the pitch and play quick 1-2s that give their wide players space.
A very nice team to watch and think I’ve said consistantly this season they’ll stay up as to me they have more grit than Norwich who are too easy to score against.”

“Very good performance last night. They restricted Arsenal to bits and bobs and always looked more likely to score even though they didn’t have that much possession.
So much to be said for both defending and attacking in numbers, and mixing it up. Stevens is a real threat down the left and the two centre halves wide of the middle man get involved in the attack too. “

“They are a good side and aren’t bad to watch at all. The “pundits” who keep lazily calling them basic and long ball clearly aren’t doing their jobs. “

“It’s the first time in a really long time that a newly promoted team have come up and introduced a tactical innovation to the league.”

“They’re actually sitting 9th in the table. Not too shabby.”

“Considering their team is mede up of lower league journeymen, it’s absolutely amazing how well they’re doing. Wilder is doing a fantastic job.”

“One of the best managers in the league, no doubt about it in my mind. ”

“Got a very British team who put the work in but also have a bit of quality here and there. Wilder has done an absolutely fantastic job thus far, and even if they finish 17th he deserves the manager of the year award.”

Chelsea Fans


“I like Wilder to be honest, blends traditional and modern approaches to football together perfectly. Not looking forward to our visit there. “

“Love seeing English managers doing well
he is streets ahead of trash like Javi Gracia. most Spanish managers are SO overrated”

“Chris Wilder seems to be a lot better than the more mundane English/British managers like Pardew, Allardyce, Hughes, Moyes, Pulis, Bruce etc.”

“overlapping centre backs FTW!”

“defensive masterclass”

Spurs Fans

“Even Sheffield united play with more intensity than us!”

“Probably helps that there players want to be there.”

“Sheff fought for everything (just like Poch’s Spurs before the players decided they were above that…) “

“The passion they showed to get a goal kick at the end of the game is something we can only dream of”

“The amount of times SU get down the left and waste the good position is incredible!”

“wilder doing a great job.what’s sad though is that he’ll never get a top job because of where he’s from and how he looks. give him a spanish passport, a nice tan and a designer coat and he’d be well in there.”

Man City Fans

“best defence in league so far Sheff.Hats off to them.”

“I’ve been really impressed with Sheffield United this season. The play good football, but show fight.In fact I’d say a lot of these new English managers are doing a good job. Lampard, wilder and potter” “Always amazes me how they bottle games like this and that’s not being disrespectful to Sheffield Utd who deserved the win,but you can bet when we roll up at the emirates or they come to us they will throw everything into it as if their lives depended on it … “

“Sheffield are rough. Theyve even got a player called Basham, expect a lot of that when City go there. “

“It’s going to be absolutely horrible. They will be allowed to kick and rough us up all game with impunity, hostile crowd, biased ref you just know it.”

“Have to say it will be a tough game for us going on how arsenal tonight and even the scousers about 3-4 weeks ago who got lucky with the keeper”

“That whole game seemed to be played in slow motion, no tempo to it at all”

Liverpool Fans

“Shows how brilliant we are that we came away from Bramall Lane with the win, very tough place to go now but we found a way to win, Arsenal get beat, says it all.Fair play to Sheffield United, they are giving it a right go.”

“If they keep this up, a lot of teams will struggle there. Really tough to beat.” “Arsenal are dog muck, but tonight shows just how hard earned our win at Bramall Lane was.”

“A Yorkshire football crowd is pretty vocal, difficult places to go, these southerners look shellshocked.”

“The atmosphere is deafening, Id hate to be an away side going there in the middle of February when it’s freezing”

“fair play to united they done well so far.. only gets harder from here on in though.. lets see how they are in about 10 games.”

“Credit to Sheffield United tonight. A club without the budget that we have, but they’re a proper team. A functional system, a coach who knows how to get the best out of each of his players & the work-rate from all involved on the pitch is superb. We could learn a thing or two.”

“They play some pretty decent stuff too! A credit to the PL”

“Quality side. Never easy for anyone going there”

“They are a team with balls. A team that will fight. A team that are not afraid. A team that we are not.”

“Sheffield United strategy is so simple when they have the ball they attack when they don’t have the ball they defend…what’s not to like”


“Sheffield United football philosophy is so easy to understand. Our is so confusing”

“United were amazing defensively. Just maybe we should get their manager in to improve us defensively!”

“Even Liverpool had a hard time against them.
We’ve been beaten by an organised team with a manager who knows how to maximise his teams’ potential.
If only we had a man in charge who could do just that.”

“Sheffield United manage really speaks honestly. I wish we had him tbh”

“I’d take the SU manager over Emery now.”

“We should look no further than Chris Wilder. He’s doing an excellent job with his team.”

“Guys like Chris Wilder that’s thier level they suited more with these kind of teams he defended with 10 men at home making big jump to top 6 club is big risk”

“First half they were all over us. That Sheffield Utd team is rank, plumbers the lot of them.
Until the last 20 minutes they were well in control, played good possession football and didn’t get bothered at all.
He’s taken them from League 1 to the PL in three seasons, he’s one of the best innovators in the country. Watch them in other games, they’re usually on the front foot.”

“I wouldn’t say we dominated anything other than possession. We had more pointless possession than in any other game I can really remember”

“Easiest money Dean Henderson will ever earn”

“Credit to them? Sheffield didn’t have to try, Arsenal were playing tippy tappy football, walking and jogging everywhere, Sheffield were under no pressure”

“Embarrassing to be so utterly dominated by Sheffield Utd from start to finish.We had the ball, but it was EASY for SU.”

“Sheffield worked hard but were lucky based on the play, scored from set piece then defended. I agree creativity is lacking from us but there were still opportunities.”

“They play the most boring football tho. at least we try to go for a second goal“

“I think we look completely limp in midfield, no intimidation factor at all, when these shitty teams play the other top teams, especially the top 2, they have lost the game before they start.”

“Beaten by pubbers”

“What knobend at Sky decided Sheffield Utd v Arsenal was a good TV selection? We all could have told them it’d be wank”

“Through large patches of the game I was wishing Ozil was on the pitch, not a good sign.”

“If Mousset was even slightly better than the Championship level plumber he is, they win 2-0.”

“When we look back on the Emery years & cry ourselves to sleep at night wondering why we didn’t sack him off earlier, we must always remember the one big shining bright positive from his reign. Something that will live with us forever. Those beautiful kits. But THAT. IS. IT.”

“Emery is a Dick.”

“Meet the new manager, same as the old manager but worse.”

“Emery should be left on the side of a Sheffield road. Let the locals feed off his carcass.”

“We can’t beat Sheff Utd. There are no teams, realistically, that we look like we would beat.”

“Play five across the back, stifle the opposition and try to nick a goal on the break or from a set piece – almost the perfect away performance. Oh, hang on… we were at home. Against Sheffield Utd. FFS”

“No way can anyone consider that a good result.”

“That was the game we had to win.
And we didn’t even try to win it.
Two errors which we inexplicably failed to punish and created next to nothing else. “

“We had enough chances to win, but didn’t deserve any more than a draw”

“kept looking at the scoreboard to check how much closer we are to the end of the game. Boring and dull that had an end of season feel about it. Also, I haven’t seen the stats yet, but I swear Sheff Utd had the ball a crap ton more than we did, I thought we were the home side?”

“didn’t think it could get any worse but it just did
Lets just forfeit this season, **** off for 8 months and start again in the championship”

“Christ, we’re so going down this season.”

“An enjoyable and exciting game of League Two hoofball”

“We needed a win today to give us any chance of building a run and getting out of our predicament. There are not enough “winnable” games left for us to accomplish the 39 odd points we will need to stay up and moreover, it doesn’t look like we’re even close to being able to put together the sort of run needed to dig ourselves out of the bottom 3. If anything, it looks like we are becoming more and more accustomed to being relegated. The players today, with the way they played and their co-ordinated lack of belief certainly looked every inch a team on their way down.
There is no way we aren’t going down. If there are any odds available on relegation, I would stake a sizeable sum. It would be printing money. This side is doomed.”

“Sitting back and giving the Blades the advantage won’t cut it as they will also be in the relegation battle”

“We should’ve won that. They didn’t create much. Clean sheet at least. 4th bottom still achievable. Bring on the next game. I’ve not given up hope. It’s too early.”

“Wasn’t that bad a performance to be honest. On another day it’s 3-0. Sheff Utd tidy but never looked like actually scoring.”

“We kept a clean sheet. They didn’t really have any chances, we had three absolutely gift wrapped ones. I understand us keeping it tight and just trying not to concede. Those are the positives at least.”

“Clean sheet and Sheff Utd didn’t look like scoring were positive”

“More solid at the back, which was a plus point, but against a team that probably came for a point.”

“I look forward to the “good point” crap, as we now head into our ninth game of the season without a win, having also just failed to beat a newly promoted team at home, who dominated possession against us, and in which we had 2 ****ing shots on target the entire game.
Just pathetic. I despise this group of players. Useless, spineless s**t bags the lot of them.”

“Watford fans do love a point though. Always take a point, even against average newly promoted sides at home.”

“I’m not content with a horrendous, lifeless draw at home to Sheffield United, in our eighth game in a row that we’ve failed to, you know, WIN in.”

“I’m normally positive but that was a ******* horrific performance. We only kept a clean sheet because we gave up all attempts to be any sort of attacking side, and sheffield united had two terrible strikers up top”

“Sheff United have some rubbish strikers they will be in trouble at some point”

“Norwich, Villa, Newcastle and Sheff utd prob wont set a very high target. We’re 2 wins behind schedule.
Deeney is the answer. “

View From Liverpool


“Hardest 3 points we’ve got so far this season” “we’ve been in a game here today.”

“Great performance from Sheffield United. I didn’t expect that” “Even as a Liverpool fan I can say harsh result for Sheffield United. If they keep up that style they will gave A LOT of the “top 6” some scary days.”

“Not many are gonna win at Bramall Lane”

“They have a bit of Yorkshire grit in that side and will be tough to beat for any visiting side especially the top 6 because they will play like this today”

“United were very good… after playing these and Norwich… feels like two teams equipped to stay up.”

“I hope SU put in that amount of effort when they play City”

“thought Sheffield were very good, hope they play that well against City as well.”

“just hope Sheffield play like that against the rest of the Top 6.”

“all credit to Sheffield United”

“Sheffield U were superb at closing us down”

“to be honest that’s probably a harder game than some aways against other top 6 sides.”

“We won’t be the only team at the top to go there and struggle this season. They’re much like Wolves of last season, but without the goal threat of Jiminez.”

“They were superb and with a very loud crowd behind them.”

“Felt like the biggest test ever and we overcame it”

“Sheffield deserved something from that, we are VERY lucky.”

“There is no way in hell we deserved 3 points”

“We were very lucky here. Shef United fair play! Big fan of Chris Wilder.”

“Hats off to Sheffield they’re not pretty but one tough nut to crack.”

“Full credit to Sheffield United, that’s the hardest game we’ve played in a while. They were so well organised and hard working.”

“bit of a smash and grab, bit lucky to get out with 3 points.”

“The clean sheet was due to their lack of quality up top when under pressure more than anything. I’m sure a load of teams are gonna go there and get turned over. They try to play decent footy and have a great crowd behind them. Credit where credits due. They aint bad, they just came up against a side today who don’t know when they’re beat.”

“Thank f**k we don’t need to go there again this season.”

“Glad to have got that out of the way, they’ll give many teams a very tough game this season!”

“Sheffield look like a well drilled team and the atmosphere was cracking.”

“Credit to them. Played very well and look exceptionally coached.”

“Defending for our lives against this lot. Embarrassing”

“poor , lucky and got away with it but take all the luck we can get”

“Got away with one there. Three points though, which is what matters.”

“Manner of the goal was harsh on Sheffield United but I’m confident that if he had stopped that we still would have ground out a win.”

“We take all our chances and that would of been a stroll today. We all know there are those games like that in the league were you just have to win ugly. Another three points. That’ll do for me.”

“Spent years watching United and Chelsea sweep up titles winning like that.”

“Was never going to be as easy as some thought cup finals for these teams just up”

“I like these wins we don’t deserve to be fair. We dont deserve the win today, but we have them and that’s just great.”

“That was uglier than peter reid”

“That was a Carlos Tevez level of ugly and far too ugly for my liking.”

“Sheff Utd played well, they defended well but they mostly had half chances and we missed 3 sitters. We also had 70% possession all game and more attempts on goal. We just lack a bit of creativity in midfield as Henderson and Gini are not the creative players so we will definitely find it difficult to break down teams like Sheff.Utd who rely on physical players, long ball and likes to play deeper.”

“We missed so many good chances. People should calm down who says we were luck. It’s Sheffield that were luck”

“we didn’t play as well as we could and yet still could have put 4 or 5 past them if it wasn’t for poor finishing and a blatant penalty not even going to VAR!!!” “Yea they got a good home field advantage, but our goalie is better than their goalie. They parked the bus and tried to waste time, then when we scored they finally started playing, screw them they got what they deserved. We go what we deserved. Go a Reds!!!!”

“They were also bit snide, and there were quite a few hacks in there. The step on Salah’s arm, although not blatant, was kind of a dick move.
Hope they can equally “raise” their game when City come to town.”

“City will batter them, they have the players in midfield to provide the invention needed to break this kind of team down.  We didn’t really have any creativity from midfield and still created 3 clear chances against them.” “nice to see Chris Wilder, another star of Jurassic Park, hanging out his players to dry in true English dinosaur fashion.”

“like that lad , pulled no punches with the keeper either. If you want to be a top player then don’t make stupid mistakes. Had his team up for it and it looks like they give most teams a game at their place.” “If the likes of Pardew, Allardyce, Hughes had been in charge of Sheffield United today, well for a start they’d have got twatted but if the game did end up going the same way they’d be straight on the TV bitching and whinging.
Got a lot of time for Wilder. I hope he keeps them up – think he will.”

“Really like their manager too. Love the way he talks about the game. Really demanding of his players.”

“I was so judgemental on Wilder, saw him as a bit of an old timer, cut from the same managerial cloth as those pricks Allardyce and Pardew. But the way he’s got them promoted playing this football for what is a distinctly mediocre squad is amazing. It takes a lot of intelligence to do what he’s done, and his self awareness and behaviour off the field is tantamount to his intelligence. It’s an insult I ever thought he was in the same bracket as that parochial minded LMA cabal and I’m sorry I ever thought that. Nobody deserves to be compared to that shower of shite, especially Wilder.”

“Joe Elliott, Sean Bean, Colin Wanker, Michael Palin, Dave Bassett, Joe Root, can you hear me, can you hear me, your boys took a hell of a beating, your boys took a hell of a beating!”
