Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

So basically all round fvcking useless. Well yeah. But also all things we got right one game ago against Leeds in a very good win So why do you think Stam changed that winning formation? He could have used Smith to replace Bod but instead chose to go back to his old ways and most of us not being ab...

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

Swift - 7 - A player we have missed badly. Can see him leaving in January for a smaller fee than we would like to see. MOTM. After signing a five year contract in the summer, no chance. Would take big bucks Just a bit worried that some of our better players and even some of our good players not get...

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

we struggled to much at all until the final quarter of the game ... Our fouling played right into their hands today allowing them to control the pace of the game, taking breathers when needed and taking quick balls at the right time. [See Ref below!] Our defenders were ... easily led around by the ...

Re: The one that worries me about January

That would be a good fee for him if realistic. I imagine Pulis is looking at him and saying "theres a man I can teach to batter the ball away"

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

We always struggle against big, strong teams so the result was not a surprise for me Performance was concerning but again if you don't play a striker you're not going to score goals? Feels like the season is a write off unless BT has something up his sleeve for Jan Yeah.. Its not like Spain won the...

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

Ok. Here we go. Much of this is obvious for the attendees and Ifollow viewers but I shall proceed none the less. Our shape is working against us. We have too many players in our own half for too long during the games. Usually we are great at pondering about on the ball without doing anything meaning...

Re: In or Out?

Can’t help but feel very deflated after seeing us limp to a 2-1 defeat while Huddersfield go and beat Man Utd and record the biggest win in their history. Two kicks of the football and it could’ve been so different... ugh As if we would have beaten United.. Huddersfield have proven they deserve to ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

Yeah we all recognised that - but he hasn’t been fit No one else quite does it as well as him when he is on form Oh I recognise he hasnt been fit. I was more commenting on the formation change brought about by his introduction. We couldnt have replicated that with any other player? Fair enough - ag...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

I can already hear Stams after match interview. "Well its tough. We knew about their strength and their physicality. I thought we played well. Beerens was unlucky with his 35 yard shot. Injuries etc.." Poor guy. This might actually be the last straw for the owners. You can say all you want...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

Maybe he wants to get sacked? My musings from the first half are: We dont have anyone linking our midfield and attack (or trying to) Sheffield are gr8 at closing down high up the pitch. 3 at the back hasnt helped us once since we switched to it. time to change back to a good old 4-3-2-1. Ilori, surp...

great ball watching from all the defenders in the box for that goal. Gunter in particular. Marking nobody and did nothing as the ball crossed the goal mouth.

First impression of the goal, Blackett at fault sadly. Tracked in to press the player on the ball leaving the wing free. Bad positional sense.

Reading XI : Mannone, Gunter, Moore, Berg, Blackett, Bacuna, Ilori, Edwards, Beerens, Barrow, Aluko Subs : Jaakkola, Swift, McShane, Richards, Clement, Kelly, Smith Let me guess, Bod is injured.... :roll: Wonder if GMac is injured as well or just dropped for a rest.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

Do we stick with Bacuna at RB and Gunter at LB? It looked pretty good last game? I guess the only worry is if they have a great right winger (don't know the opposition very well) Gunter might get caught out? Hopefully Barrow and Bodvarson start. He's surely less likely to get caught out than Blacke...

Re: Leeds v RFC Back from the Tele

Kind of player we’ve missed this year (when he was injured) even more He makes a massive difference to our attacking threat. Was really hoping Aluko would be another version of him and and they could terrorise the oppo full backs. Maybe he still will in time. Popa is similar but not as good from wh...
