  1. A percentage of punters will find themselves hard done by in this initiative, none the less. The only solution being to keep one cash only till open per stand, just to ensure that all fans are being catered for.
  2. Bit different when your team are PREMIER LEAGUE. Every point is massive In this league, so I will be celebrating draws all day long!.
  3. The first half was a little tentative, but then again they are going to be aren't they. We know the dangers of top flight teams and we knew the dangers in particular of the likes of Wilson and King. The two back rows were a different class for us. The back three were solid and didn't bow down to WIlson or King, and the midfield to disciplined in breaking down play, both through the middle and down the flanks. I dont think even of us can gramble about the goals conceded, both had a little bit of luck with them. I am over the moon though with the lack of fear that we had in stepping it up a gear. We knew that we deserved something from the game and knew that we could get something, so we digged in and went at them. A quality point on the road. Disciplined performances like that will deliver singular points, it is the second half performance that will deliver 3 points from games. At this level, it may well take us 20 minutes to adjust to the opposition and we may well have to get used to attacking mainly in the second half (especially on the road). Exciting teams though! Chris Wilder - "we're here to compete, not here to make up the numbers. As always, I want my team to win games of football. We won't win them all, but I dont like losing, so if we do lose, I want us to lose trying to win"
  4. Apparently the magic number for top flight survival! We all knew it wasnt going to be easy, but with Wilder in the hot seat...anything is possible. Norwich had a rude awakening of how tough this league is against liverpool last night, but all things said and done, they still gave a good account of themselves..... So let the countdown begin! 38 to go.
  5. Take your pick from the following? Refreshingly, tonnes of choice!! GK Dean Henderson Simon Moore Michael Verrips DEF George Baldock Enda Stevens Jack O Connell Chris Basham John Egan Phil Jagielka Kieran Freeman Richard Stearman Kean Bryan MID John Fleck John Lundstram Luke Freeman Ravel Morrison Oli Norwood Ben Osborn Mo Besic FWD Billy Sharp David McGoldrick Callum Robinson Lyss Moussett Oli McBurnie Mine would be Henderson O Connell Jagielka Egan Baldock Stevens Besic Norwood Morrison McBurnie Robinson Can't see Wilder throwing that many new boys in this early though? His pre-match press conference saying that he feels that certain players may need more minutes before starting etc.
  6. APPARENTLY DONE:- Mo Besic (Everton) - Season long loan Michael Verrips (Mechelen) - Free Transfer
  7. Now in talks with Everton apparently, in attempt to sign Mo Besic. Another quality player rumoured. All very exciting now, let's see who we bring in!
  8. Confused with Carter-Vickers from Spurs?
  9. Rumours of a potential late dart for Celtic's Scott Sinclair. A really good player in his prime and one who has been putting in decent showings for the Hoops. Has the potential to play a part in our squad, however; the system that we play doesn't utilise a natural wide man. Would I take him? Sure, more flair to add to the likes of Ravel Morrison, Moussett and Freeman. Am I crossing all of my digits, nah, take it as it comes with this one.
  10. Rumoured keeper in from Mechelen, Michael Verrips is it? Again, a fantastic shot stopper and strengthening another massively important area. Henderson is a quality keeper, but Moore worried me at Championship level (never mind PL). Best transfer window in the history of the club this. Soooo much talent brought in, no question of the ability to compete at this level!
  11. Allowing LB a few games to have a good look at him, surely wouldn't be such a bad thing based on yesterday's result. To be able to "try before you buy" is unheard of in this day and age! If Bullen brings the results in, then surely he deserves a proper crack at it. I remember some of the names being banded around before we set Wilder on, some of which household names. Our current gaffer was N unattractive propositio for some fans, but he had a CV of proven success. Lee bullen may not have this, but he doesn't need the period of adjustment. He knows the club, the chairman, the players and the fans. He knows the position that the club is in and the expectancies of the position. If he handles the pressure, then it would be completely foolish to overlook him. He has stood by your club through rocky times of late, perhaps it is time to repay the favour. Of course my view is of an outsider, but my opinion would remain the same regardless of clu.
  12. 😂😂 Won't cut it in the champiochampionship... Not one blades player would get in our team...... Billy sharp past it....... Straight relegation...... Won't be asking for the lottery numbers any time soon..... #footballexperts. Cracking run on against a very well organised Reims team and to be fair, we manufactured our own defeat in the end. That reims team beat a PSG team containing the likes of Cavani, Di Maria, Dani Alves, Mbappe, Draxler and Bernat only a few months ago, by the same scoreline....and we matched them and probably should have licked em. Just a few things that need finesse. Nice to see us using the final game to try a few things. Players trying new positions and systems and new players slotting in there as well. The quality of some of our signings is unreal! Can't wait to watch Robinson and Ravel Morrison on a more regular basis! In fact all of the new players bring something more to the table and the way that we zip the ball around will shock a good few teams in the top flight.....We are a footballing team! We play football, we don't slog it about..... Exciting times ahead......but please I beg you!! Continue to doubt us and write us off!! Don't stop now!!.....We love being the underdogs!!
  13. Henderson and Robinson start, with Morrison, Freeman, McBurnie, Jagielka and Osborne on the Bench. Just seen the video of the Robinson goal, what an absolute screamer that was. A very tidy volley from the edge of the box into the top corner! Wow! GOTS contender already! If that had of been any of the big names of the Premier League, we would never hear the end of it. Be interesting to see how we change things up second half. I'm feeling a debut goal for McBurnie coming on and even another for Osborne. 1-1 at half time.
  14. No ambition with all these freebies...... We need to spend some money United 🤣🤣
  15. Yeah, another wider esque player, one that he has been monitoring for a long while and wanted to bring in on loan last season. Raw and has a point to prove, pacey as hell and a bit of flair.......No problems with him what so ever. What with Wilder being the best manager in the country, he knows what he's doing and erm well, a great deal more than you sooo.......
