Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

Not me, my boy who was scouting Sheff Utd for upcoming game v LUFC, (he's an RFC fan and former ST holder) "Woeful. Men against boys. Only shining light was Swift who made a huge difference. No other positives whatsoever. Pathetic." Rather think I trust a professional's view on the perfor...

Re: Relegation

Oh it’s possible. Just don’t think it’s likely

As for that ‘Preston guy’ suspect that ship has sailed. Too good for us now, should have gone in for him early summer instead of Oliveira in retrospect

Re: Relegation

Nah we’re not that bad. Held our own fairly well against every team we’ve played, just made poor mistakes and not utilised the good players we have effectively going forward If come Dec we are still bottom 5 I think the club will make a change with the boss. I’d expect the squad to make mid table pr...

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

Don’t really agree with the pressing. Other teams have not pressed and sat back, and actually nullified us more (Norwich and Hull imo didn’t really press up Top) Think that’s a big oversimplification In a way you play the possession style expecting the oppo to press, the aim is to tire them out and ...

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

Is Stam incapable of changing tactics No he's not. When we play well ( Birmingham, Leeds, Villa) he changes the team and formation next game. If an individual plays well (Kelly, Evans etc), he's on the bench next game. Yesterday’s team selection was down to losing Bod to a calf problem in another t...

I agree on formation strap

But we need Yann or Dadi imo to play that

Re: In or Out?

I get you OilRoyal and don’t get me wrong, I’m far from happy with our performances and Stam’s own performance this season If we’d play at Leeds like we did vs Millwall or Norwich I’d be swaying to the out camp But he did show he could change things about and learn from his mistakes with the right p...

Lose next week and I think he might be gone. Anyone who enjoys this football needs their head examined. Won’t happen.

Any less than 6 points from these next 2 and he's out


So we beat Boro and draw with Forest and he’ll get the sack?

Do you actually believe that?

Re: Relegation

Only a simplet9n would think this side will dabble with relegation and Stam should be sacked before he’s had a chance to put out his favoured XI even once. Checks OP Oh..... Yeah indeed Not sure that you can blame Stam for not getting the striker in Sutekh. It’s not him negotiating with Brighton fo...

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

In the jockey in Sheffield. Stam has no clue away from home. Attack us and actually play forward and were oxf*rd. Alan Pardew. Been saying that for a few weeks now. We beat a team who were in the top 4 away last week and this week beat Brizzle 3-0 No matter how much you whinge on here, I very much ...

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

2-1 scoreline looked closer than it was. Tbf that’s quite often the case away. At least we stayed in the game, didn’t collapse and gave ourselves a chance I don’t think we’ll win games this year without Bod or Yann starting. Swift is a big bonus if (and it’s a big if) he can find his best form Monk...

Who knew having a link between midfield and attack with a player like Swift would make a difference... :roll: 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.

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

I’d agree it certainly puts a lot of pressure on us for those 2 home games Like I said, they are more instructive for me. With the injuries we have, I couldn’t see us getting anything from this but different story next week Be worth chucking Smith on but can’t see loads else that would change things...
