    Liverpool aren't and city up to a point but don't make out Arsenal, Man u or Tottenham have been great this season because they haven't, Tottenham seem to of gone backwards. That's not taking away from how well you've done, you deserve to be where you are though and this punishment could of guaranteed Europe if it's not overturned

    Don't you think the Blades are doing great?  I do and the reason is the just play to win every game and it is working

    Would you turn a pay rise down if your employer was supplying a good product and wanted to reward his employees. NO


  2. Sheffield United are on a high because we now have an owner who is passionate about football and watches  more football games on video than most people in the game. He has regular meetings with all the staff running the club ie the meetings in Dubai last week and has decided on many updates for the ground, the squad of players, the training ground etc

    Success on the pitch is just reward for all this effort from many people and the supporters are appreciating every second of it.  The atmosphere at matches is electric and if we get to play in Europe we will give it 110% as always UTB

    The bold..... He has well and truly bought into the project, but let's remember who is gaining from it. This league one of, it not thee most lucrative in the world. Buying I to the project is solely a business move, with investment he will profit.

     

    I understand this and I get it, we sure as hell arent able to remain continuously competitive without it..... All I ask is that he sticks to he words and understand and respects our fine club and fans. Money clouds judgement and I dont want any business moves thay prove long term costly.

     

     

    The Prince watches loads of matches on TV all over the world, pleased he has invested at this time   Onwards and upwards  UTB

    Good draw for Wednesday 

     

    But concerned about the first leg being at home

     

    I'd have preferred to play Man City away as the Owls are giving some proper hidings on away grounds

     

    But as its a home tie, I think Man City will win

    The Owls have played Man City in the cup not too long ago at Main Rd,  seem to remember the Owls scored first and the result 6-1, maybe the same again

    I'm not sure if everybody is aware, but this season sees a difference to the way that money is distributed uted between clubs in the top flight. Where are TV revenue would have once been equally split amongst teams, it is now split more fairly based on screen time and position etc etc.

     

    To cut a long story short, it is projected by Forbes that each position in the premier league table  come the end of the season, will be worth a staggering £2m per position!...to put this into context, being a winning team in the FA cup final...only pays around £3.8m and the semi finals only around £1.8m.

     

    Literally, no other league in the world has so much financial incentive based on league position.....In fact of you want to look at it from another slant, finishing where we are now in the league, based with narrowly avoiding relegation...would be the difference between paying up in full for our marquee signing Oli McBurnie or not (£18m).

     

    Surely this has to be factored into projections when considering the transfer pot this window?  Even staying above 12th position, could bring in a staggering +£10m revenue. With this in mind , knowing how we have played so far and where we sit in the league....do you increase the transfer pot, offset against a target of staying up there come the end of the season?... You could argue that it would be a huge ask and a huge gamble.

     

    One thing is for sure.....never before have Sheffield United been in a league that is dictated so heavily by money! 

     

     

    TV rights for showing Premiership matches around the world are huge and the clubs involved get a persentage of this. No one can quibble really can they

    I have been trying to get tickets for the home matches of Sheffield United, and every time I visit the website to buy some, I am informed that I need a minimum number of "Loyalty Points" to be eligible to buy the tickets. Apparently, loyalty points are earned by buying tickets.

     

    So how do I earn the my first set of loyalty points to buy my first ticket?

     

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

    Loyalty points are only awarded to season ticket holders I think but maybe wrong


  7. McBurnie and the Moosey don't look fully fit yet. Billy was very unlucky not to be on the scoresheet.

    Altogether a good all round performance and nice to see plenty of fresh legs on the pitch in the second half

    Looking forward to good battle on Tuesday night UTB

     


  8. Not the best home performance of the season so far but I think the most important.

    West Ham came to stifle our style and it worked to a degree. We battled well and got a well worked goal to seal the result

    Well with City going down against Wolves yesterday they're  either going to be very despondent or they're going to come back fighting !  Just hope it's not us that gets the battering !!

    We just need to play our normal game and aim to keep a clean sheet, Liverpool seem to be strolling but they were lucky winners at Bramall Lane so no fear and City are not unbeatable either  UTB

    So why didn't the Newcastle players all not continue running up the field knowing that if Henderson stops it/saves it, but the ball stays in. They could have been 4 on 1. (also, why did the player look to the linesman when running up to goal? what's the point if he was told to ignore it?)

     

    The linesmans should just not bother flagging at all. It serves no purpose based on this, and other decisions.

     

    Either way, VAR has made this season all round, a bleedin joke. I even skip through most of match of the day now. It's no longer watching 2 teams playing football (which is what I want to watch), it's just a bizarre decision that decides who wins.

     

     

    VAR today has rescinded a RED card for Basham today. First positive for us after 16 games

    Arrogance from Wilder, you aren't in a position to rest your best players because the alternatives aren't good enough!

     

    Totally agree with you. No one was very exited when the teamsheet was announced and CW explaining changes to come during the afternoon was very surprising and to me was part of the defeat

    The Magpies came for a fight and didn't really get one tonight

    Onwards and upwards and see what the Canaries can do to us

    Where did ye hear that bud all l know hes got a good relationship with gibson and at one time he wanted the job. Hope its right hes a good manager likes a challenge and by hell he would have one...

    Warnock would shake your players up and kickstart your season' hope this is true for you


  14. Any views on the 3rd round draw for the local teams?

    The Blades were knocked out by a non-league team at this stage last year at home so will history repeat itself?

    The Owls match should tell the supporters as to what standard they are at.

    Rotherham not through yet

    All the best anyway.

    I'm sure you did want United to win.

    But as they are both called United, you wouldn't want it any other way...

    To be honest, I must be one of the few who's two fave teams are Manchester United and Sheffield United, in that order, so the result didn't hurt me and I'm glad that both teams showed a hard fight back spirit to the rest of the premiership. But it is concerning that Manchester United took so long to wake up

    I'm a supporter of both the Uniteds that played on Sunday but I am a Blades Supporter for nearly 70yrs but have admired and followed the results of Manchester since Matt Busby was manager but on Sunday they learned a lesson from us

    I think it depends on the terms of the loan in the first place.  As I understand it, teams can set provisos, eg if we're playing your team, we reserve the right to ask you to refrain from playing our loanee.  I presume that's why he wasn't playing.  To be honest, I didn't think Man U would object because it shows a lack of confidence in their own ability to win.

     

    Got to admit though, watching De Gea was still a pleasure.

     

    I hope we can do a deal with Man U and keep Hendo.  

     

    Enjoyed the match today.  Fantastic atmosphere at the lane.  Some of the chants were hilarious.  To be fair, Moore didn't do too bad.  We missed Egan today.  Mousset was inspired.  Did he go off with a muscle injury?  Wouldn't be surprised, he demands a lot of himself and those fantastic break throughs sometimes do come at a price.  Hope he's ok.

    Mousset was clobbered early in the game and it slowed him down, he is an excellant buy, fast,strong and reads the game well
