Blades 2-0 Blackpool

“No one cares anymore end of we’re shit, going down again and soon be playing in front of just the away fans. Whilst Karl is down there manning the kiosk trying to sell beer and hotdogs. “

“Why don’t you just close the club down oyston instead of all this pissing around”

“According to Ronald –
McDonald | “The difference between the two teams was one goal that shouldn’t have been allowed and one quality finish.” “

“Ha ha, just listening to the knob heads interview, he is basically saying Sheffield United were lucky.”

“He is being positive for the sake of being positive. By the sounds of it we got absolutely battered in the second half so why not discuss that and tell fans how we prevent this from happening. He talks about passing the ball better yet people on Twitter talk about the midfield not being able to string a pass together.”

“Were not rubbish, were fucking shit”

“ we got absolutely battered in that second half. “

“Have literally lost all hope in football now.
They will never leave and the only thing we can support that will resemble our town will be something like AFC Blackpool.”

“Everyone involved in this club should hang their head in shame. The fans have suffered long enough now “

“3 things from today.
The fans were superb.
Sheffield united were crap and there for the taking. Also Sheffield united fans were awful didn’t hear them once all game until the final whistle.
If the freekick went in at the start of second half i would of fancied us for 3 points. “

“Sheffield Utd were crap and there for the taking yet we didn’t or couldn’t do it, encouraging.”

“I Sat in Sheffield home end – 2 none descript teams so far – we’ve not been as XXXXXX as I thought we would be”

“As bad a game as I’ve watched all pre season et all. SUFC fans f.ckin embarrassing if the truth be known. Modern football”

“It’s in Billy Sharp’s contract that he scores against Blackpool.”

“Connor Sammon is pants but Billy Sharp is still a threat though and should be decent in League One.”

“Billy Sharp always scores against us.”

“Decent game, poor quality, didn’t deserve to come away with anything from the day.
But, I’m really confused by some of the chanting today.
We had the various anti Oyston stuff which I’m fine with and seems to be par for the course these days.
But there was “we’re so s**t it’s unbelievable” about 3 minutes into the game and “how s**t must you be…” throughout. Yet, there were chants celebrating Wes, Adam, Evatt, Sylvestre etc.
So why aren’t people supporting the team? If you don’t support the team because of the family, how can you possibly celebrate our recent heroes that were brought in under KO’s stewardship.
Anyone care to explain? “

“It’s simple
The idiots who keep going are as bad as the Oystons”

“ Completely agree, if you’re still going to matches especially home matches I don’t think you will ever change.
You have been institutionalised by the Oyston regime and you will never understand that this is no longer Blackpool FC, just another Oyston run company.
Please stop.”

“Home and away ….Every single person needs to stop
I don’t care if you like it, just do the right thing”

“Agree with the sentiments. I had some notion that going away only would be taking a noble stand against the owners.
But it’s not. It’s just validating the ‘team’ that the owners allow the manager to put out. There is no team, just a collection of footballers with no where else to play, so there is nothing to watch.
If everybody (and i mean everybody) stopped going as of now, the owners would be gone in weeks. So just stop going. “

“The ones who keep going are thick as f uck”

“Our fans were a disgrasce today. Ok we sang 90% oyston out but where necessary backed the team. People just sat there “who want to watch football” some not even chanting. Why bother going”

“Some of the pacifists are starting to rebel and dont even clap & singalong to this fearsome chant anymore:
“Come On The Pool
Come On The Pool” “

Pre-Match View From Blackpool

“257 tickets sold in advance for Shef Utd away so far, despite the game being POTG.”

“What’s more worrying is that people are going to go!
We are fucking shit at the moment, and not worth a journey anywhere.”

“ Where have the Pool fans gone. Cos none are home and away. It really is a sad time. Ardent fans won’t even go away anymore. They are giving up, and these were fans that had Blackpool FC deep in their hearts, and ones that wouldn’t pay Oyston a penny but said they were prepared to POTG have walked away from it all.
What is the answer ? I haven’t a clue. Is Oyston driving us back to where it all began ? Yes.
Is an invasion the only way, but if numbers aren’t there, there is no point.
But many on here backed another invasion, but if a head count was done, heads would be missing.
Can we win the war…not sure.”

“Sorry but what’s the point of travelling all that way to see your team dicked?”

“Cos we want to. Got a problem with that. We will keep you and all the other warriors informed on away games, and home protests cos that’s what we do, to keep forums like this busy.
Getting near the point of not contributing on here, Facebook etc.
United we stand…..Divided we fall.
The whole thing is doing my box in. So stay at home. But don’t tell me and all the others to not travel.
We are still BFC…..not OYSTON FC.
Uncle Val doesn’t care less, so we follow the Pool. “

“I used to be the proudest Blackpool fan about, used to be proud as fuck to show my colours. I won’t be seen dead in a Blackpool shirt anymore because it’s fucking embarrassing to be a fan of the club!
I don’t have the same emotional attachment anymore, when we score i just clap, when we concede i just laugh.
We have got a fucking manager who seems pleased with himself and finds it funny that we have just lost back to back home games against the mighty Rochdale and Burton!
What is there to believe in? The club is dead!”

“ I’m expecting Oyston FC to get a right good spanking on Saturday but knowing that we will probably scrape some scabby 0-1 win and the green shoots of recovery posts will appear… “

“That is the problem BFC is no longer about football “

“I have supported this club for 66 years first seeing them play in November 1949 and have never missed a season not seeing them play even when living abroad, but this season I am finding it very hard to get out and about and watch them play.
I went out to the car morning of the Colchester game, along with a sandwich and drink for the journey after phoning Colchester to make sure I could pay on the day and then just turned and went back inside the house.
I really do want to see the team play even though I wouldn’t recognise any of them in the street but the people who employ them have taken such extreme measures to alienate the fans that I find it hard to separate the issues.
I still feel down if we lose a match no different to what it was like ten or forty years ago, I would never want them to lose and that is part of the problem, I still have a long standing passion for the Tangerines and will continue to do so until death do us part.
I only wish I could muster the enthusiasm Mike and others going to see them play, as for them playing crap football well some of us have seen that from years ago, that would not be my excuse for not going but then we all know how that has come about.
We are all in this together, unfortunately we have different ideas of how to cope with the situation and how to remedy it, if only that 37,500 who went to Wembley a few year ago could march on Bloomfield Road now that would be something special “

“Ive swapped possible glory, Bramhall Lane and Yorkshire hospitality for a car boot sale this Saturday. I believe we’re about 250/1 to win this one. Chris Basham hatrick (he still there?) all set up by Bob Harris (is he still there too?) “

“These days, I can only dream of having Bash in our team”

“I think we only have the two keepers, Boyce, Cameron, Cullen and the lad we got from Carlisle (name escapes me) who are decent. The rest are L2 at best and that’s pushing it!
We’re doooooooooooooooooooooomed I tells ya! “

“If we play like we did last night then we could be torn apart.”

“they are a cut above us”

“Predict that for 10% of the game, the ball will be humped in the air by our backs, in the vain hope our dwarves can outjump the massive Blades”

“ It’s a long way to go for a drubbing! “

“Sheff. Utd. 2-0 Blackpool.
Scoreline will paint one picture, but the stats will show another.
Possession 76%-14% in favour of the yorkies.
Shots 41-1
On target 28-0
Corners 15-1 “

“I will go for Sheff Utd 4-0 Blackpool”

“ Sheffield United 6 – Blackpool 0”

“4-0 half arsed performance from United”

View From Peterborough

Peterborough 1-3 Blades

“Think everybody saw that coming in fairness”

“Felt like we were back in the championship tonight. Painfully out of our depth against a top Sheffield United side”

“Beaten by the better side. Thought we did alright at times, but in the end not enough. A lack of depth at the back lost us that game”

“Sheffield United will take some stopping if they find a couple of defenders. Excellent going forward. Some terrific movement
Blades played tonight like they should play at League One level. The change of manager will prove decisive in my opinion”

“fair play to united, good away performance and deserved the win, we rallied but were second best for 80% of the game”

“Good effort but Sheff U too strong for us once they got into 3rd gear”

“ In fairness there is nothing like a promotion side coming to London Road to show how poor we really are. Season of struggle ahead.”

“ Just like to say that I hope the referee & Mr Atkins have a nice “Netflix & chills” on the coach back to Sheffield “

“Im sure there will be fewer teams better than Sheffield , but is that the way we should be thinking”

“ Don’t think there was too much to be ashamed about tonight being beaten by the hot favourites to win the league. “

“I thought that Posh were second in every department tonight to an organised Blades outfit which should finally return to the upper reaches of the Football League. he midfield was overrun, Bostwick and an ineffectual Collison being unable to cope with the skill and speed of the Blades players. Their Connor showed how to finish. I can only remember Howard having to make one save apart from the individual bit of skill by CoolBabe which resulted in our goal. As to the yellow card total our defenders seem more inclined to grab an opponent than to tackle properly ; this crude method of tackling combined with Maddison’s shooting tonight would not be out of place at Twickenham. It’s going to be a long hard season. “

“Looks like Sheff U will be going to where they shudda been now they have a real Manager “

“we got beat by a side not out of 3 gear”

“We were constantly exposed by speedy Blades attacks. Zakuani found Sharp a handful all game. The Blades forwards too quick, too bright and too experienced for Santos. Blades are far better at attacking than defending, but they controlled Washington with ease ”

“Beaten by a much better side that were organised and more skilful. Sheff.Utd will be near the top for sure “
“Firstly, it is fair to say we were well and truly beaten by a much better side. They had much more skill, movement, passing ability and it appeared desire. Equally we have to be aware that they no doubt have a much larger budget.”

“Sheffield Utd arrived with a proven manager and a forward line we can only dream about, with strength throughout. Campbell-Rice was even only a sub to start off with, but he was able to run rings around our defence.”

“My gut feeling is that t’Blades are a top four side but they’re not runaway winner material like a Bristol City.
More that we made them look good “
“Last night they were taught a lesson in finishing not only by the guys from Sheffield”

Pre-Match View From Peterborough

“Thought Tuesday was going to be a difficult game. Then I remembered that Sheffield Utd got dicked 4-0 by frigging Gillingham “

“Buzzing for Posh on Tuesday. “

“Unconvinced that this management team will be able to forge a promotion winning team from this distinctly average disjointed shower of poor individuals, its looking less and less likely that there will be entertainment in the form of good attractive football to be watched either.
Very poor, very dull and very disappointing – a distinct reflection of the manager, paddyMac & that mouthy idiot who sits on his shoulder.”
“We beat a very poor side on Saturday with a lot of luck also as 2 players could have seen there marching orders today. Most of these players are very average and we will not get in the play offs with them.”

“I’m afraid that on that performance much as l hate to write it we are a million miles from being a promotion side based on today’s showing. It reminded me of Fergie’s era. Not much has really changed. “

“let’s be honest, we’ve beaten a poor L2 team and one of the relegation favourites and been unconvincing each time.
The game stats from yesterday suggested little between us and Colchester, with similar possession, shots on target etc.
And now T’Blades roll into town on the early train, with Mrs Wishywashy at the helm.
We played them a few weeks further into the season last time round, after we’d had a flying start and they’d had a bad one. They won 2-1. And this time they’re coming in off the back of a win. “

“We have been overrun in midfield last two saturdays”

“Tuesday has not been much of a rich pickings day for us and….the blades owe us one for the theft of 3 points last time we met at their place”

“We are an accident waiting to happen at the moment. Think I’ll probably take the overs on total goals v t’Blades. “
