“Sheffield United deserved the win! “

“Real shame, feels like a missed opportunity as don’t feel Sheffield United were at their best. That being said they deserved the victory, they’re not where they are by luck. Hope they get Europe. We’ll bounce back.”

“I’ve seen us play better, I’ve seen us play a lot worse. It’s one of those games where a team challenging for Europe narrowly beat a team in a relegation battle.”

“As good as they were, the first goal was fortunate and the second one was poor from us. We could’ve done more with our first half chances”

“Didnt take our chances early and Sheff Utd slowly wore us down.”

“If the opposition work twice as hard as you there is a good chance they will win.”

“Sheffield United were not at their best and this feels like two points dropped.”

“They’re basically a respectable Burnley; they play similarly but actually have some talent playing the ball around on the ground as well.”

“Our rolling around in so called game management added the time Sheffield United for them to score at the end of the 1st half.
Sorry, our diving around under basic challenges was a disgrace.”

“where did that 3mins of added time in the 1st half come from?”

“Our rolling around counted for most of it”

“I don’t like the rolling around we do.”

“I don’t think we rolled around that much tbh, maybe on a rewatch it’ll stand out more. I thought Sheffield were excellent tbh, much better than I expected them to be- but still beatable. We had a few clear cut openings that we did nothing with.”

“Congratulations to Sheffield United for being the best team since Brazil’s 1970 World Cup team…………..or so the last 2 hours of listening to these tw@s on BT Sport would have me believe.”

“the fair result would have been a draw. Simple as that. We had as many chances as they did after all. Haven’t seen much mention here of that brilliant save by Henderson from Fraser at 1-1, I believe that goes in and we win the game. Fine lines.
Despite Owen Hargreaves wetting himself, Sheffield didn’t batter us at all. They actually had some spells of pressure and then the game evened off again. The game was lost because we switched off at the end .”

“”A good team?” Somehow these guys are being viewed as the second coming of 2015-16 Leicester. I saw nothing to convince me that they should be fifth in the table (except their 39 points, I guess).”

” I thought they were terrible for 30 mins, and then huffed a bit and got another lucky deflection in the box. However that was our fault for sitting back and inviting them on. Second half they did nothing, and scored a fairly well worked goal while we stood and watched them. Out played no. Out ‘desired’ absolutely.”

“fair do’s to them they just run all over you and pump high balls into the box and the pressure usually tells for them in the end.”

“Sheff United get the job done, but it’s not in a pretty way. The overlapping CB’s is a thing (media dine out on it) but it’s not why they are where they are. Essentially they just get it in the box and are physical”

“Not sure what’s ‘so refreshing’ about Sheff U. Perhaps it’s because pundits are seeing something different (bar Burnley) . They simply don’t piss about. They just get the ball into the box quickly”.

“They aren’t that good and we aren’t that bad. I thought we created more than them second half but we still managed to lose”

“they were bang average weren’t they, and we let them have 4 points.”

“Sheff U are not a better side than us on paper, which brings me back to lack of imagination, fitness provision and organisation from the management team.”

“I thought we played quite well against a good, organised side and another bloody HOMER ref”

“Threw away three potential points to a talentless, but workman like team.”

“we lost in a poor game where both teams made plenty of mistakes but they dealt with the mistakes well, you cant blame conditions as it was the same for both, the ref was shite and let alot go that would of normally been fouls. sheff utd are very much like we were apart from more physical (not dirty)”

“I’m not sure Eddie has a clue what to do with So Lankey. Its a little bit like when he didn’t know what to do with Mousset prior to us selling him on.”

“We have just 2 pts fewer than 2017/18 when we were 10th. 2 pts more this time only puts us 15th.
We’ve won more games than Arsenal (10th), who’ve lost the same as Man City (2nd).
Sheff Utd (6th) have scored 1 more goal. Chelsea (4th) have conceded just 4 fewer
Funny old game”

“Weather for Sunday not looking good… high winds and heavy rain at times.
The home game in August was spoiled by unseasonably strong cross-winds as well.”

“Could work in our favour now we have started to go more direct, can turn the game into a scrap.”

“not sure about risking King in what will be physical encounter”

“I’d bank anything on team v Sheff United being unchanged other than Steve Cook in for Lerma and a switch to 343. Eddie normally likes to match opponents up when they play 3 at the back.”

“They have had an awesome season, with a magnificent 23 GA. But only 26 GF. I could barely name three players if pushed, so it should be interesting watching.
We defend well with the right line-up, midfield will be a challenge with Lerma absent but that was on the cards (bad pun alert) with him on 9 before last week – and I would almost prefer having him back against Burnley. I foresee 1-0 either way or maybe a 1-1 draw.
Our game is sandwiched between Brighton-Watford and Man City-West Ham …. this will be a very interesting weekend.”

“Chris Wilder is a bloody good manager and really pleased Sheffield United are having a good season”

“Sheffield Utd should be tremendously proud of what they’re doing. But the PL circus meat grinder will knock them down and around in time. I’m sure they know that.”

“Not many teams getting it right…Sheff Utd maybe…with the momentum from promotion…just like us ..fresh and unknown! “

“Bournemouth are a strange side we always go through a bad spell and somehow start firing in goals at this stage of this season for some reason should be a good game with goals for both teams.The difference with Sheffield United and wolves from last season finishing 7th is wolves score more goals, whereas Sheffield United score by the odd goal or two and aren’t as clinical”

“If we don’t match Sheff Utd’s workrate and fight then we will lose its that simple”

“If we can get an early goal, this could really open up for us.”

“Play at our best and there are 2 points from Sheffield and Burnley”

“Sheff Utd love the Counter attack as do Burnley so we need to balance high tempo attack with defensive discipline.”

“The trip to Sheffield will be difficult; they’ve done some good business in January and are a tough side to crack open. Hate to sound pessimistic but that’s the game we’ll most likely lose out of the three games against them, Burnley and Chelsea”.

“Not sure if Zikovic will be playing as he has just recently signed for them from a Chinese club.
But he certainly has pace”

“They have some new signings, one of which Berge is a club record fee and a very pacy forward in Richairo Zivkovic. But they probably will have to adjust to the PL. So Lee Mousset our old player and their leading scorer with 5 goals and leading with 3 assists will be one to watch.”

“They won’t care, they’re 6th.. But how did Sheffield United let Aaron Ramsdale go for £800k?
Whether he’ll be a regular starter or not is another question, but he’ll certainly be a regular squad member for England going forward. Incredible for 21 years old”

“I don’t care what Sheffield Utd do…. Simon Francis is the original overlapping CB!”

“That Divvy 2 opener in 1987 was the only time we’ve ever beaten them, I think….”.

“Didn’t we play them at some point in the 80s while wearing Chelsea’s kit, or was that a different game?”

“0-0 draw in our promotion season. First time we had played a “big” club for years.”

“Another us v Sheff Utd fact is that despite only playing 15 league matches against them, we have played them in all four tiers.”

View From Crystal Palace

“Delete club”

“I don’t know why I bother, frankly.
Sometimes we’re lucky to get nil.”

“Hodgson must be gutted, one mistake away from a 0-0 draw.”

“Easy double over us”

“Our Midfield was woeful today. We were outplayed in both the Southampton and Sheffield matches. We desperately needed creativity… And today lacked any”

“We still look pretty blunt up top, but SU are a very good defensive outfit.”

“To be fair Shef Utd have a good defence and aren’t a bad side. But we haven’t got a player with any competence in front of goal.”

“We were technically better than them, but they were very well organised.”

“Sheffield United really weren’t anything special.”

“Got out shit housed today simple as that.
Fair play to them.”

“Real shite house win that from Sheffield United from a game with nothing in it. Way it goes sometimes, decent from us for the most part. “

“Creatively they are the poorest team we have played this season. Organised? Yes, but they offered very little until we gifted them their goal.
Thoroughly, thoroughly depressing.”

“They are cloggers and have a system on the occasions they get possession. It’s 90% guile and effort, 10% actual skill. Awful side, can’t stand teams like this in our top flight regardless of how much love you want to give them.”

“Ffs they’re not cloggers, they’re a decent team punching above their weight. Next season will be tougher for them.”

“Why will it be tougher? Surely decent players of skill will canter into the same position again. Or is it that they are organised cloggers punching”….

“I don’t like bigging up Sheffield United, because **** them… but I find it hard to deny that what they’ve done this season is impressive. It’s rare that any promoted team performs the way they have, so there’s more to it than “clogging” or simply being organised. Besides, it’s weird us criticising them for that when we’re hardly Barcelona or Brazil ourselves. We’ve basically been a kick and rush team for most of our time in the Premier League.
I don’t want us to be cloggers, I want us to develop an identity that isn’t just get the ball to Zaha and hope for the best.”

“The fact is that on the balance of the season, they’ve played better football than us. Scored more goals, created better chances and likely had more possession. So again: what does it say about us when we’ve looked so ineffectual against them home and away. We’ve haven’t looked close to breaking them down, so it stands to reason that if they’re championship level cloggers then we must be lower championship level given how easily they’ve dealt with us”

“It’s not “US” that have looked ineffectual against them, it’s loads of sides. But the way they do it is awful anti-football. But if you like that then you must love Burnley and Huddersfield”

“I thought we were by far the better team against one of the top away teams in the Prem. They were a nasty time wasting fouling team who deserved nothing.”

“I bet Chris Wilder can’t believe his luck, Utd played awful and walked away with all 3 points!
We play a truly miserable brand of football. People pay good money to watch that crap.”

“That’s 3 home games since the new year and we’ve lost to Derby, Saints and Sheff Utd without scoring a goal and never really looking convincing. Worrying times. Anyone who thinks we are safe from going down is deluded”

“Took my old man today. He said “why do Palace not attack down their right hand side?”. A simple observation from a man who watches very little football. We’re so unbalanced. It’s horrible. Fit Townsend will help somewhat, but we needed an attacking RB, we needed creativity from midfield. Complacent.”

“So didn’t deserve to lose today”

“Didn’t deserve that at all ffs”

“until they scored we were by far the better team. Its just we have a shocking striker.”

“Honestly, played well. VG’s first error and it happens I guess. This lineup was great but just want Max to start and I think we can create many more chances but inspiring game for me. Shows we can attack”

“Sheff Utd should have been playing with 10 men for over half the game and yet the ref tried to send Ward off!”

“As for Andy Madley, his incompetence knows no bounds. That was one of the most embarrassing refereeing performances I’ve seen at Selhurst”

“The ref was an utter joke. Booking Tomkins, nearly sending Ward off for a foul not even bookable, and letting SU get away with foul after foul, including one on Wilf that nearly took his legs off.”

Pre-Match View From Crystal Palace

“If we don’t take this lot seriously we’ll be in trouble. We need to be positive from the start.”

“Sheff United arguably a tougher game than the likes of Arsenal.”

“Got to be honest, Im not looking forward to it.”

“This is one game I am not looking forward to. One of our worst performance of the season was away against them. They play the type of football that gives us nightmares.”

“I don’t think we’ll match their intensity and they’ll take the points.”

“Loss written all over it”

“Who ever Roy picks it will be ultra defensive and hope we nick a goal same as always.”

“It will not make any difference who we pick, it will end up like the Southampton game with more then likely the same score, it’s just the way they play and what they’ve been doing away from home all season ..we sadly won’t like it at all and everyone on here will go bonkers again, expect nothing that’s what I advise all of you to do. “

“If we try as you desire to attack at will and in the same fashion as Sheffield United the score will end up even worse then the loss I predict, we have players who can only operate in the way they’re playing now, mainly because they’re not good enough to do otherwise. “

“I’m sorry but I’m still really on a downer from the Saints game and I don’t see an improvement in result for this one.I was at the Blades game earlier in the season and we were woeful, disinterested and just outfought and out harried. They’ll do exactly the same to us this time and we’ve shown recently we just don’t have the appetite for this type of game. I’m really not looking forward to it but I’ll be there all the same hoping for some kind of miracle that we actually play some entertaining football for a change. ”

“As Sheffield attack down the flanks Roy probably won’t go 4-4-2. More likely to stick to 4-3-3 with the two wide forwards helping out with defence on the wings.”

“Ayew can drop back to help out the midfield when needed and Wilf can have the freedom to roam. I usually would say I prefer him out on the wing but Sheff Utd effectively snuffed him out last time out and I think he and Ayew would make us more fluid. I also think this line up would give us better cover on the wings, which Sheff Utd seem keen to exploit”

“Man I love Chris Wilder and look how he speaks about us. Massive admiration for everything he’s doing at Sheffield United. Hopefully then don’t beat us on Saturday ffs”

“If you’d been told in August that we’d be 3pts behind Sheff Utd at this point you be thinking “oh shit” – until you were also told that Chelsea and Spurs would have lost more games than us and that we’d be above Arsenal as well.”

“Sheff Utd are said to be having a great season… they have 33 points??Just think
2 extra wins rather than losses
Silly draws///
and that Wolves 2 pts lost, we would be 5th!!But two of those games we won had we lost, we would be 16th!!”

“Without a game being played, we have gone from 25/1 to 14/1 at best for relegation. Lose against Sheff United and things will start looking even worse. Where are all the people assuming we have been doing really well with one of the highest wage bills in the country?”

“I think staying up will require 44 points this season.”

“44 to stay up, would need some bizarre results”

“this is a season where the bottom teams are constantly taking points off each other. If this trend continues it will be less points required than usual to stay up not more. Be surprised if we need 38”

KV Oostende Fans Views On Richairo Živković

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

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

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

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

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

“Suffered from star allures at KV Oostende”

“Zivkovic left us with frustrations.“

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

“no better than dimata”

“I’m glad he has gone”

“Up to now he has failed everywhere”

“wasn’t a guaranteed starter at Oostende”

“He did not eat the league”

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

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

“Surprised he has got an EPL move”

Bayer Leverkusen’s Fans Views On Panagiotis Retsos

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

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

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

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

“Retsos needs game practice”

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

“Incredible why he never gets a chance”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“He is very tough”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Genk Fans Views On Sander Berge

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

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

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

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

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

“Just shows how much money English clubs have”

“Icon!! Don’t leave plz”

“I don’t like he has said goodbye”

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

“We have lost everything now he has gone”

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

“I enjoyed having him”

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

“Young and very talented”

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

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

“our key player. “

“our key player. “

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

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

“Gonna be a big player”

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

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

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

“He has the physique”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“I had awarded him something nicer than Sheffield.”

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

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

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

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

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

“We’ve kept up our 100% record against Sheffield United in the FA Cup. Well done, lads.
Shame, though, we’ve been soundly beaten each time we played them….”

“Always disappointing to exit the cup.
But no disgrace to loose to a team doing well in the Prem.”

“fairly even and tight game which they edged in the second half.All in all we were less of a threat than we needed to be to overcome a good Premiership side. They were controlled and comfortable most of the time and the result was about right”

“they were different class.”

“Sheff Utd showing Prem class and deserving winners.”

“Different class from Blades in the second half who had far too much quality”

“Sheffield United played some decent football and quite simply were better than us.”

“Sheff Utd should be our benchmark”

“all credit is to Sheffield Utd, very very good side and 2 great finishes. Lost to the better side and we move on”

“They are a good side a worthy of the win.”

“they have players who can shoot from distance give their players half a yard and they will bury the ball. They deserved the win”

“There not in top six of premiership for nothing. On a different level to us, not to say we played bad. Championship more important at the moment.”

“You just can’t help but like chris Wilder and Sheff Utd. Decent club, decent fans, honest and hardworking team. I have no issues with today’s result. Go again Tuesday”

“Sheff Utd are an extremely well oiled machine (only lost to MCFC & LFC away)so hard to break down.”

“I think Millwall played quite well today but both their goals were quality, particularly Mo Besic’s opener. Would be quite happy to see Sheffield Utd win the FA Cup.”

“Fair result seeing we were playing we 10 men and 1 toothless AoB., How does he get in the team….complete waste of space today but the team played well at times but the level of passing between the 2 teams was the telling factor….not to sad to be honest and defo did not want a replay”

“They were there for the taking 1st half”

“Beat ourselves today”

“Gave it a good go but just come up a bit short. Flattering score line for them.”

“The Sheffield back three are slow, we needed someone with pace to have a go at them.”

“I hate to say it but I would rather us lose than a replay.”

“Bigger Yorkshire puddings to roast”

“The way those northern monkeys were singing you would have thought they have won the cup”

“Sheffield Utd, loudest we’ve heard from the north stand for a while. Shame it took 2-0 to hear your voice. Shit fans through and through!”

“Sheffield United give it we are still a real club Bollocks but it hasn’t taken them long to sing all the same old shit the rest of the Premiership sing. “

“I’m not sure if this one will attract a big crowd. We love a cup game against the premier sides but how do you see it? We play them on regular basis, they’re no Spurs or Everton and there’s a good chance that both managers will select squad players”

“It didn’t exactly get me too excited as like you say, we played them a lot recently” “Always a good atmosphere against Sheffield U”

“always a good atmosphere when Shef utd come to the den”.

“Trains from Sheff to London are knackered so don’t expect them to bring many.”

“They are a real good side. I really like them”

“Given our form at the moment, people might think an ‘Upset’ could be on the cards.”

“Wilder says he’s expecting to make maybe 2-3 changes, so this will be tough.”

“An intriguing game where both managers are set to make changes. They are a decent side who have made their mark in the premiership in their first season who can give anybody a run for their money home or away. Their big dilemma is do they sacrifice a place in the fifth found when there are bigger riches to gain from a higher position in the league and a possible Europa League place. Sadly, as glorious as the FA Cup was in the past it now only offers small change for Premiership clubs.”

“I hope we don’t progress, I like our league form too much to risk injuries!”

“Save players like Jed ,we got more chance of winning the league than the cup”

“Unlike other seasons we’ve got other interests and right now for me the cup isn’t as attractive as last season, when it was a diversion from league reality.”

“I couldn’t give a shit about the cup this season. I usually love it, but I’m not even going Saturday. We’ve been spoilt with the cup in recent years, all I care about this season is the league”

” I don’t think Sheff Utd will play their first team but Rowett might also have in mind that we are playing Leeds on the following Tuesday.”

“The ideal scenario is a weakened team told to play their arses off with pride for the club and only just lose, so everyone’s impressed and we don’t feel like we lost really, then go and grab a dream result Tuesday night, that’s the one I’m bothered about.”

“Leeds will have had nine days rest to our two, i’d say that’s quite an advantage”.

“A chance of the play offs or getting hammered by a premier team in the latter rounds and squad fatigue/ injuries. Hmmmmmmmmn let me think about that”

“We can’t rest many of our team.
We don’t have that big a squad.”

“The way i see it, its a game we can win even if they play a full strength team, plus a bit of money if we progress. Obviously avoiding injuries would be a massive bonus, beat Sheffield United and going into the Leeds game our confidence will be sky high, the last thing we want is a draw, then have to go back to their ground for a replay..”

“Strongest side out & have the intention to win. Otherwise dont bother selling tickets and forfit the game.”

“The way things are going, means every player will be up for both games & rightly so.
Play to win or dont bother!
We can beat Sheff Utd on Saturday & go into Tuesday doing the same.”

“Let’s hope Sheffield put the reserves out”

“We have been playing well of late and we have a chance to progress by beatin at least 6 first teamers but we will show no fear and knock them out “.

“Northern tramps, we will beat em,and then we will go onto beating the cheating savile loving shit eaters. Fact”

“lets piss on the yorkshire Twats”

“Yorkshire week for Millwall so the plan is Go in the away end against Sheffield United
pull a bird and go back to Sheffield with her. Stay at hers all week going to Leeds
midweek and Sheffield Wednesday on Sat. After taking me home she’ll feel like she’s won after
Millwall win. “

“Brush up on Dee dar speak”

“Ay up lad is that ground tother yonder see thee Tha can have me sister but not me Hendersons”

“Good win against a really organised side. Performance wasn’t brilliant but got the points.”

“Bloody hell, that was hard.”

“a hard thought win against a very good side. “

“That put years on me.”

“Hard fought victory against a side superbly well-drilled, full of running and a side which has consistently given sides a bloody nose.
They make the game a bit rough around the edges and although it was not one of our vintage performances, from a creative perspective, we showed a different set of characteristics, such as resilience, determination etc.”

“Hard fought win against a load of clogging wankers.Remember why I prefer wednesday now”

“Remind me of Stoke when they first got into the prem. hugely physical and aggressive and not what the majority of the leagues players are used to..
They will however get used to and prepare for their style. Will struggle in a season or two imo”

“Not much quality otherwise against an team intent on kicking us as much as possible.”

“Bunch of cloggers.
Hard faught win. “

“workman like performance, lucky not to pick up injuries”

“sums up the state of this league when Sheff Utd were 7th coming into today, absolute shite”

“scumbag sheffield ****s.”

“Sheff Utd play shit 80s football”

“like watching Wimbledon circa 80’s”

“Utd were dismal, what a poor style of football they play.”

“I despise Sheffield Utd fans
I despise Sheffield Utd players”

“Another set of no nothing nobhead fans in the Premier league. See Stoke, Burnley or Wolves”

“Hate them vile team and fans and press keep saying how great they done against us they had 2 shots on target over the the two games give over.”

“Don’t know who was more shite. Jesus, Sterling or the entire Sheff Utd team.”

“Sheffield United attempt to kick us off the park was embarrassing, Wilder is another dinosaur.”

“They really are a team in Colin Wanker’s mould.”

“Great result against a set of thugs sent out to rough us up, fucking Neanderthal tactics,Wilder has taken the mantel of Warnock for me”

“A carbon copy of Sean Dyche”

“Wilder talking shite about pushing us, saying he thinks our fans agree.
I agree they pushed us alright, they pushed our nerves to the limit with neanderthal tackling meant to maim!”

“Managers like Wilder really piss me off when they come out with shite like “Games against teams like Manchester City aren’t going to define our season”
So why set up against us as though it was a defining game for you?
And the lazy rhetoric “We’ve only just been promoted into the premier league, Manchester City have spent billions over the years”
Yes Chris, we have spent billions. That’s why we finish either first or second in the league nearly every fucking year.
Liverpool and the rags have spent a few bob too but they’re not as consistent as us.”

“They are down next year. Wilder is Mark 3 of Bassett and Warnock. Norwich play to entertain and win and they will ultimately prevail when Sheffield are back in the lower leagues.”

“Wouldn’t mind if sheff united fall apart tbh, bunch of cloggers with backwards fans. Also, wilder has a very punchable face.”

“Lost all respect for them tonight.”

“Pathetic set of fans as well – loveed in when our players bassed the ball and ept it for so long that their fans had to give up shouting handball at every touch – as i said – pathetic”

“awful team,beats the shit out of me how they have so many points on the board…”

“One of the dirtiest teams I’ve ever seen and I would imagine they will get relegated next season when the novelty factor wears off.”

“Hope they dont win another game and get relagated”

“It’s the first time I’ve really paid any attention to them, the home game I expected us to win and to be honest it was a bit of a piss up.
the new Burnley I guess.”

“game was just as expected, playing Burnley version 2, long ball and at times overly physical.”

“If that lot are 7th the Premier League must be shite. Utter garbage. Mason is a cheat”.

“Good win against a well organised, very physical team playing with 12.”

“Mason couldn’t give it to them, but he tried his best. “

“Usual disgusting cheating officiating by Mason. Club needs a new dossier on him to have him removed from our games as he is the same in every game we have him”

“Mason was shit,equal bookings i think,they set out to cripple eric and whoever else they could,vile club”

“They booed the ref, doesn’t get much more blinkered than that. Except for Liverpool fans of course. “

“The actually think they’re hard done to lol”

“We wasn’t great, but a good battling performance against a bunch of dirty bastards.
We’d see red for them tackles.
Commentary was atrocious, I bet you could watch that on SUFC own channel and it wouldn’t be as biased as that.”

“tin pot club…..nobhead fans…..Wednesday shit all over them”

“Have they stopped kicking us yet?”
