  1. 3 points, that's all we need, thank you Deano for a great save, thanks to Billy for doing what he does and Lord Lundstram for the winner.
  2. Three interesting signings, all young lads with potential, Chris Wilder building for the future. Fifth place in arguably the world's best football league, a great foundation to build on.
  3. Three points, fifth in the Premier League, some interesting new signings, great time to be a Blade. Berge looked good, Lundstram was great when he came on, Mousset showed some good touches as well as his pace and power. Dean Henderson on 9 clean sheets, and only Liverpool have conceded less goals than us this season. Rock solid defence and keeper. First half was nothing to write home about, and if Palace had any creativity, they could have been a goal or two up, but the pattern of "get the ball to Zaha" never changed, so everyone pretty much knew what they were going to do all the time. Up the Blades!
  4. He actually had a Blades win, 2-1
  5. No deflection?, he hits it down into the ground and it bounces in, at speed.
  6. Got the original album with the pull out booklet, with mini biog's of all the local bands.
  7. The Arse fielding a 160 million strike force, but it's the Blades that everyone is talking about. Blades better for most of the first half, Arse better for most of the second, until Chris Wilder made the changes and then Fleck scores and we go for it. We needed to put the early chances away, and it would have been three points instead of one. Still, Man City to come on Tuesday, so we need to start concentrating on that.
  8. I think they were the poorest team to visit BDTBL this season, Deano had virtually nothing to do until the final 10 minutes. The big question for me would be, why would you leave Snodgrass out of the starting line up? He changed the game for them when he came on? For the first time this season, VAR calls a decision in our favour.
  9. "Far Removed" Practiced at Herdings Youth Club, late 70's, played a few pub gigs then played at an international festival called U and U at the Crucible, then split up.
  10. I was talking to the Liverpool lads I used to work with, a couple of days before the game, and they said that Klopp was putting out his strongest team against us, and then would rest a couple of players when they play Everton!, I guess that shows some level of respect. But we never recovered from the early goal really, and they just showed how good they are. Still, 3-0 on aggregate (home and away fixtures) is not as bad as it could have been, they put 4 past Leicester (at Leicester) and five past Everton recently. I don't see anyone getting anywhere near them now.
  11. Never had a problem with Uber (anywhere). London had a massive issue years ago, with what were called "mini cabs", in other words, normal cars driven by people who were not licensed taxi drivers. Uber always send you a picture of the driver, along with the car and reg plate.
  12. Seen it a couple of times, in recent seasons. Drop ball. Either way, an almost full strength Man City team relying on VAR and the ref to win against Sheffield United, like I said, who would have thought it. The majority of their fans (on their forum) were not looking forward to our visit, and you could see why, at times. We almost made it to 12 months unbeaten away, but 11 and a half months is still pretty good. And if our first goal had stood, it would have been interesting to see if our other stat held up or not! (never lost a game in which we scored first, since 2014). Oh, and we only lost by two goals, just in case "Bash Street" is reading this.......🤣
  13. The thing about VAR (for me) seems to be that the actual image they use to judge things on is a really grainy, low quality!, shame for Mousset, could have been a different game, and a ref living within a few miles of the ground was never going to admit to obstruction. Second goal from City though, very classy indeed. Shame Billy hit the wood work in the final minutes. I guess this shows how far we have come, to be disappointed at losing to Man City (away!).
  14. There was a band called "The Prams", if it is the same band I am thinking of?
  15. The last band in your list (Vitamin Z) lists only two people, but has a picture of three, the guy on the left is/was Richard Anderson (Guitar)
  16. He had a great game at their place as well, saving a couple of point bank shots. Good keeper, mid 30's (?), Keepers don't burnt out as quickly as outfield players and can have much longer careers. If we could get him on a two year deal at the right price, why not. On another note, we need someone to stick a foot out when Norwood delivers a free kick like the one he did towards the kop near the end of the game. Curls it round the first man and running parallel to the goal line. Everyone watched it roll past!, stick a toe out and it's in the net and three points to the Blades!
  17. I think this is the crux of the matter; getting an agreement that they could sell the ground to themselves to fudge the figures (which if the EFL agreed to, will no doubt anger some people), but then putting the sale into the previous years accounts, and in the process, selling the ground to a company that appears to have been incorporated a day after Chancer signed off the books (which included the sale). I would also find it hard to believe that if the EFL did indeed go along with the scheme to sell the ground back to the owner, that it would sanction 60 million as the value, when the book value was around a third of that. SWFC vs the EFL, interesting times we live in.
  18. Can you name one? (serious question), his Dad, although getting on in years, is the head of the family businesses and his older brother is the heir apparent. DC is listed in various business shareholdings as "family member", not "Managing Director" or "Head of Business Development" of anything that says he is any sort of businessman.
  19. It was a good day out, but being blinded by that low-in-the-sky, winter sun was a bit tough in the first half. We were no where near our best but managed a draw. How we missed that sitter in the second half, when the ball went straight across the box and someone only needed to stick a toe out to score, I'll never know!
  20. Actually, we have been rumoured to be linked with a couple of players with a surname beginning with "B", so I suppose it depends who you mean. One is outrageous (unaffordable) and one is outrageous (extremely gifted but erratic).
  21. He does indeed, I really can't see that one being true, can you? I know Wilder has the reputation for taking highly skilled, but erratic (or under performing) players, and working a miracle, but I just don't see it with this one at all. Who knows?
  22. There are a couple of outrageous names being mentioned, by quite reliable sources, I assume for loans in Jan to the end of the season. If I get the idea that there is something of substance to the rumours, I will post back on here. Put it this way, for one of them, even Chris Wilders legendary man-management skills would be severely put to the test............
  23. The pride of Sheffield, unlucky not to win, but that's how it goes, we really should have won but credit to Man Utd for playing out of their skins to take a draw from one of the best teams in the country. UTB.
  24. Seriously?, you are surprised? Can you name any "huge companies" that DC "owns"? Who are these "Top Accountants"?
  25. In other words, simpleton's error. I mentioned a few times that the "books were cooked" and there was a mistake in them. Looks like someone spotted that mistake (I didn't read the books, by the way, but someone I know said, "by the way, did you see....", etc.). The EFL would have had no choice but to investigate, with glaring errors like that. "Selling" the ground, trying to back date the sale, selling to a company that were incorporated after the supposed sale went ahead, and the glaring error in the books. A points deduction and a transfer embargo won't be the end of the world anyway, too many poor teams in the Championship to lose sleep over.
