“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?”

Nottingham Forest Fans Views On Jack Robinson

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Will not be missed and on big wages”

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

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

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

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

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

“He can’t play wing back so get rid”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Robinson at LB:

P18 W10 D7 L1

Robinson not at LB:

P9 W1 D4 L4 “

“I do not want to harp on about VAR but Sheffield United have had more than their fair share of being on the wrong end of VAR decisions, but I hope no such controversy occurs tonight as City visit Bramhall Lane with an odd kick-off time dating back in the day when this was a normal time to start an evening match, such is the power of TV Mogul companies like BT Sport, I am surprised that the game is not split into quarters so they can have adverts mid-match.
Sheffield are having a great season being back in the top flight and are playing some exciting football without having spent mega amounts of money a relatively small amount which comes nowhere near the amount e.g. spent by the Merseyside Club which paid for their centreback”

“Going to be a tough game especially with their brilliant home support. I just don’t think we have the mentality for a physical battle.”

“This is going to be a really really tough game.”

“Think we’re really gonna struggle here.”

“They doing quite well for a promoted team, and pretty good vs top teams as well. Fans will be up for it they know our defence can be caught very easily with some long balls, counters, set pieces. Problem is if the lesser PL clubs like Sheffield, Palace, Wolves, Norwich know this and punish us so often what the hell is our plan vs Real Madrid which should be priority we have one month to improve seriously until we play them.
I expect a very close game”

“The kid Norwood is some player.
Been impressed every time I’ve watched Sheff Utd.”

“I like Fleck. He has poise”

“Fleck is a top player. “

“The United kid they have is the future of England’s goalkeeping”

“Not going to win the league and could probably accept a draw in this one”

“tactically they are still impressive but the execution hasn’t been there recently. They’re probably feeling the effects of not being able to rotate their squad much over the Christmas fixtures”

“Sheffield looked half decent against us. We still beat them”.

“So we need to win 10 of our 15 remaining league matches to guarantee top 4, assuming all the rivals for that win all their other games? We still have Sheffield, united, and spurs to play, so good to win those especially. Be good to have those 5 games of points ‘in hand’, especially if we make cup progress.”

“Several more changes again as is the norm”

“Sheffield away game seems much harder than Palace and best players will play there”.

“It will be a tougher match than Saturday”

“Strongest side at Sheff Utd, change v Fulham, then kill Utd.”

“Stones is injured.”

“To be fair it would be hard to notice the difference with the useless sod.”

“Well, I’m back to not caring about football again. Was a fun 3 weeks lads.”

“Genuinely is becoming an absolute farce this season now. 6 wins and 11 draws. Beyond awful.”

“good point and closer to our goal for the season staying up. Im confident we will stay up now”

“Disappointing not to win it in the end, should have sealed it before they scored”

“Is there anything more stressful than Arsenal defending a 1 goal lead? Literally”

“should have won FC”

“Draw FC”

“Worse 90 mins under Arteta, never got going
Sheffield utd are really well organised”

“Sheffield Utd are a good, well drilled team.”

“Sheffield United have players who earn modest salary and are so unattractive to the big clubs they probably feel quite fortunate to be in the position. Grateful even.
That’s why they would run through a brick wall for the team and the manager. Who in our team would do that for the badge or manager. Nobody.”

“say what you want about Sheffield Utd but there a far more stable side than us at the minute and difficult to beat, that’s just where we are as a team currently”

“Sheffield United had players that could match us for speed, power and even technique. this is a bang average squad that has a HUGE summer of recruitment ahead. As for this season, it’s a write off.”

“I’m more optimistic with these performances and average results over those good results but poor performances. I say average because you’re also not considering the quality of the opposition. Teams like Sheffield and Palace are very good. Palace got a draw at the Etihad today, are City poor too?”

“Sheffield is a pretty good team and we looked solid in defence until the goal.”

“Sheffield united were comfortable the whole game. We were at home. We are Arsenal FC and they are coming to the Emirates and being comfortable. They leave with a point so stop talking about some mythical improvement. Improvement is dominating matches. Improvement is winning matches and having some impact on where we finish in the league.”

“Many of you are saying
“We looked solid against Sheffield United”.
Go and repeat them words and think about it. “

“What a shit performance.
Shit result.
Because we are a shit quality team.”

“none deserved to win today. Pretty average game all around.”

“The only positive I guess is that we thoroughly outplayed Sheffield from 25-30 minutes onwards. They really had one spell towards the end.”

“Sloppy first 20 minutes but after that we dominated scored good goal failed to score 2nd got robbed by var and Sheffield score via deflection in 83 minutes. Frustrating.”

“Pen not given and lucky deflection for them. Usual stuff.”

“Proud of the effort. Should’ve had a penalty. Unlucky goal conceded through a deflection.”

“MOTM for Sheffield United was VAR”

“How comeit;s not a penalty? because :
1.Martin Atkinson at VAR
2.Mike Dean as Referee
3.Arsenal is not Liverpool”

“We should file a lawsuit against the premier league
and FA
officials for bias against Arsenal
How on earth is that Pepe Foul in the box not a Penalty?”

“Joke of a VAR, joke of a goal they get.
We’re not great, but we did not deserve a loss this game, we simply didnt. I’m not mad at the team, i’m mad at the obvious unfair treatment we’ve received this entire season. How are you supposed to compete when VAR has effectively ****ing busted us at least 9 points this season.”

“Arsenal have lost more points this season due to Var mistakes (10 Points)
Let that sink in..”.

“So. Another win VAR has stolen.”

“Corruption at its finest”

“Man we deserved to win this game but var and the players incapability to kill of a game hurt us again.”

“Mike Dean with his job again. That’s the definition of a clear pen.
I thought they want to use monitors more often now?”

“it was a dive”

“So in theory, this should be fairly straight forward. Sheffield United are really looking decent this season but we’re at home and seem to have a fresh approach about us under Mikel.”

“If we win this we’ll climb to 1 point behind Sheffield United.
Never thought I’d ever say that. “

“Would take a point.
We’re in a dreadful time”

“Bit of 6 pointer really if we have any designs of finishing higher than mid table.”

“Really we should win this. We have the much stronger team on paper. Arteta will have had all week to train with and prepare the players for this game and we’re at home.
BUT they are a very well organised side, deservedly sitting high up in the league and we’ve struggled to create many chances against much worse. Plus no Auba to bail us out by taking one of the few chances we create. Doesn’t bode well.”

“They are in pretty good form and will cause us problems. We’re conceding for fun and barely scoring and now Auba is out.”

“This is tough even if at home Sheffield will keep defending deep and try to hit us either on counters with Auba is out it’ll be more difficult for us to get goals need Pepe and Laca take responsibility.

“without Auba and with Sheff U’s tight defence i think it could only be a draw”

“We won’t score more than 1 without Aubameyang”

“Extremely well organized side. Does their basics very well. Table doesn’t lie.
I don’t think we are going to create a lot of chances against a team like this. Key is to take every chance that comes along. And for that reason, Auba missing is going to be a huge factor. The rest of the forwards are far less incisive.”

“Not type of game that we need atm.They’re decent in defence and can be very tricky opponent.”

“Weirdly confident about this one.
They have been nothing short of brilliant this season and aren’t just a defensive team, they can play some good stuff at times.
Got a feeling Luck might start to change for us”

“Will be a tight, close and physical game.”

“They are hard to play, physical team. We should not play Özil in this”

“No Auba, no Kolasinac or Tierney, no Torreria.
Two of our best players out.
Not ideal but no excuses here, we still have Ozil, Lacazette, Martinelli and Pepe ……… if we can’t get goals with that then the players need to have a serious hard look at themselves.”

“As long as we score 3 goals in the first half hour, we’ll win this”

“United is about to feel the wrath of Arteta. This might be the game where Laca will step up and be counted when it comes to scoring goals. 4-0 to the Arsenal. Obviously, I’m saying all this in vanity without acknowledging how well organized they have been this season. Oh well.”

“Think we will plow them. Will do the team good to not have auba on the wing. Though I wish he could play and laca on bench”

I’ve been surprised how well Sheffield Utd have kept up their off the ball movement and pressing systems.

“I thought they’d fade away a little but they seem to have gone from strength to strength. Been in every game they’ve played this year, City away was possibly the only time they’ve been hammered.”

“Sheffield Utd were awful away to Liverpool and there’s no chance they’re gonna rock up here in a similar vein. It’s up to us to make them look like what they are- an ordinary team. “

“Very impressed with Sheffield United too, deserve to be where they are.
Kinda annoyed that these days football seems to be all about “pressing”, “work rate” and “running” though…any useless **** can do these, I want to see things on the pitch I can’t do.
Who cares about all these useless forms of basically exercising…football should be about the artistry, the technique…the mavericks that get you out of your chair…”

“Football is dead.”

“VAR has the blood of football on its hands tonight, it has officially killed the game we once loved..”

“Fed up with celebrating non-goals. And to be against that lot”

“Well, that was Moyesy. And then VAR. I hate football.”

“I don’t know if it’s because it’s fresh in my mind but it seems like we’ve had a lot of decisions go against us as a result of VAR.”

“We were robbed of a point, and if it was liVARpool playing that goal would of stood.
Having said that, we were second best tonight.”

“Blame the new law not VAR.
VAR got it right based on the law”

“It’s ridiculous that a player having his arms by his side with his eyes closed can be called for handball when the ball is hit at him for inches away.
Especially when a Liverpool player is allowed to stick their arm out to stop the ball from 10 yards away.”

“We’re worse than VAR gutless negative performance..
Going to Sheff Utd and looking scared with the players we have.. How long does Moyes have left?”

“Gary Neville said that the attitude that coming to Sheffield united and saying a point would be a great result is everything that’s wrong with the club. We didnt play well, didnt deserve anything, and the mentality is completely wrong throughout the club if you view a draw at bramall lane as a great result when you take travelling support like that to Sheffield on a Friday night”

“Any West ham fan that doesn’t expect 3 points against that sheff utd team are idiots and are the reason why we don’t progress as a club”

“I agree with Neville, it’s pathetic that we as a club see a point away to a championship side as a good result.”

“Sheff Utd won every 50/50 tonight. Worked harder. Wanted it more”

“Sheff utd players that could only dream on out midfield wages but totally destroyed us”

“Sheffield United are a younger, fitter and frankly better side than we are. “

“Sheffield United were the better side imo and deserved the victory”

“Sheffield Utd were far the better team. If we keep playing like this we will be in serious trouble by the end of the season. How can any hammer feel inspired watching this team at the moment?”

“Sheffield United fully deserved the points and played some decent attractive football. “

“Moyes gone senile.Just said the mood in dressing room is fine as they played well and deserved win”

“First test for Moyes and he unsurprisingly fails”

“His tactics were pretty similar to his opposition manager tonight and if anything we showed more quality when the likes of Anderson or Rice got on the ball. They capitalised on a goalkeeper error. The only other difference is they had a bit more energy in the middle as Noble was **** and Mousset works harder than Haller. Antonio in the team tonight and we would’ve pissed this”.

“How much did we have to endure to lose by just one goal. We’d done the hard bit and snuffed out home advantage after about 20 minutes. Following that we looked comfortable and on the up in the remaining 25 mins of the 1st half. Start the 2nd half off and no real advantage either way. Then the error and goal. Due to that we had to then re-assert ourselves against a bouyed crowd and a team handed a goal. But we came back into it with 4 chances on goal to finish the stronger side. 2 disallowed goals, 2 terrible finishes from Lanzini and Haller should have had us level much earlier.”

“Both teams weren’t great, Sheffield Utd probably edged it with their energy.”

“They’re not easy on the eye but fair play to them”

“Theykicked the **** out of us and got away with it cos of that joke of a ref. We are significantly better and more organised that we were under Pellegrini we would have gotten smashed if he was still in charge, Sheff Utd are no mugs this season have a look at the league table”

“They had a couple of free headers from corners but other than that created nothing. Not to mention the savage hack on Anderson that has us down to 10 for 10 minutes…”

“We only lost because we were punished for a mistake.
They had 2 mistakes that Anderson and Lanzini didn’t take advantage of.
That’s basically what it came down to. Two average teams, one took their chance. “

“Played against a 5th place Sheffield United team away from home and pretty much kept them out the whole game bar Martin’s mistake”

“We didn’t deserve to lose the game. Sheffield United offered nothing, they are solid for sure but a gift for a goal from a GK mistake”

“How SU are where they are is a mystery, they’re a bit rubbish . We’re a lot rubbishier though.”

“Imagine being a Sheffield United fan and potentially dropping points at home to that shite”

Pre-Match View From West Ham

“Friday night in Sheffield .No trains back, and nowt to eat or drink save a greasy chip butty and a gallon of magnet.
Probably a game for over 18’s only.”

“Well up for this one on a Friday night, new ground, under the lights and a bit of angst between the 2 clubs, should be a cracker!”

“Sheffield Utd are a hard working energetic side who defend and attack as a team and as Manchester United have found , they don’t give up and keep going to the end . On paper they look like a bunch of journeymen Championship footballers but Chris Wilder and his Scouts have brought together a Squad of players capable of competing and doing well in the Premier League .
To get all three points we’ll have to be at the top of our game – Leicester City , Southampton , Liverpool and Newcastle have all beaten them at Bramall Lane so it’s not unthinkable we can’t , we look a better side already under David Moyes so let’s hope the 100% record is still intact come Saturday morning .”

“Confidence should be up after two on the bounce. I’m going for a win here”

“Lots of people raving about them this season yet we win up there and we are 4 points behind them despite the awful run we’ve had.
The one good thing is that you can be certain that Moyes will have a game plan – hopefully its to attack the game the same way we did Bournemouth as I think this is winnable. I think Sheffield will be favourites which does us a favour IMO. “

“Don’t really see why a lot of people in the media are creaming themselves about Sheffield United. Admittedly I’ve only seen them 3 times on the box, twice against the scousers and against us, and I’ve been completely underwhelmed by them.”

“This is where, I think, we will find out if it was right to bring Moyes back. Get a result here, and myself and many others who were sceptical will start to believe in him.”

“We are going to have to work our socks off for this. But Sheffield aren’t just up there because they run around a lot.”

“Not confident for this one, fear it a lot less than I did two weeks ago but they’re well organised and while the previous two wins are much appreciated, I do think the results do not reflect the full context.
Found myself somewhat rooting for them in some games, mainly due to Wilder, his post interview after the Liverpool game I found refreshing.”

“Seen a couple have mentioned the have lost their last two in the league, but those being against Man City and Liverpool away so very difficult to read anything into that. Prior to that a draw against Watford, which isn’t terrible given their resurgence.”

“a big upgrade in quality of opponents for moyes. a good team on form and winning. can we produce a good performance and get a draw up there.
crowd will be hostile and the tackles flying in. a fully committed team who will run all game. unlike Bournemouth who are on their beach !”

“If there’s one place I want to come away from with 3 points this season its the Blunts.”

“Pretty much a “must not lose” game not because of positions of where we are but because its Sheffield United.”

“Moyes can make himself a cult hero by putting a team out that beats these twats. Would be a really special victory especially after the Tevez debacle.”

“I have a very specific request for the outcome of this match.
We must only win by one goal. But that goal must come in the sixth minute of stoppage time after the board shows only four should be played. There should be no explainable reason for this such as further injuries etc. They must also have had three stonewall penalties turned away without recourse to VAR due to an electrical failure within the VAR studio. Oh but that isn’t the only mistakes of the night, our injury time goal is scored by our Argentine player Lanzini, however our newly employed shirt man finds foreign names difficult and accidently spelt it Tevez.”
