Blades V Liverpool

Recommended Posts

Dogged, battling, professional, team-spirited defensive performances, as seen against everton and this first half, is the key to staying up this year.  It is what got us up here in the first place. We throw bodies on the line and we give 100% in working for each other. We aren't infallible, we are going to make errors in judgement, but when we do, we have to work for each other to stop them being costly...and we are learning!

 

We were perhaps handed a get out of jail free card on a couple of occasions there, but we havent camped, we've tried to play football and we have had a pop at Liverpool. 

 

Well chuffed with that first half and hope to see the ball hit to back of the net, I  front of me in the second half. Liverpool can go over the top as much as they want, 9 times out of 10 we will deal with it. Let's continue to hit them on the counter and who knows, we may well find a bit of success. Anything from this game would be a huge success, avoiding a hammering would be deserving of merit!

 

Come on United! I'm back in my seat, typing away with cold, numb fingers. Give me something to get me all warm!!

You cant legislate for that, I'm not even blaming Henderson for that. A zippy pitch with moisture and these things happen.

 

We matched one of the best teams in the world and we kept them off their game, we were absolutely fantastic and should walk away from it with heads held high.

 

Massive confidence booster going on forwards.

 No doubt that was a gritty performance from the blades, but more like that and it could prove to be very costly, why you may ask easy they,ll be chairman out there who will be putting the feelers out on the availability of CW.  Money talks. Well done blades

Well played United, as I said yesterday " it's 11 on 11 and anything can happen". Almost a well deserved point today, tough loss, but encouraging for future endeavours.

Fantham got the winner but I don't remember who else scored. It finished 2-1.

 

Found it on the internet. It was Billy Griffin, and Maurice Norman for Spurs.

The Owls without two regulars that day; Springett (injured) ,hence McLaren playing and Billy Griffin starting in place of Bobby Craig perhaps ?

Well we played really well, to say we were facing the European Champs.  I will look forward to the Sky Highlights or MOTD and hope that they give us a fair shake and not just Liverpool attacking. 

 

No Billy and no McG told a story today, just one of those things. 

 

Great game though.

We played brilliantly and the Liverpool manager even admits they got out of jail having said that this is three games on the trot at home where we were the better team and we have not got a point.That is a worry I can forgive Henderson because he has been great all season but there is a mistake in him from time to time.What is more of a concern is our finishing once again without Sharp we struggle putting the ball away.If we had taken half our chances the goal keepers mistake would not have been so expensive.Against Southampton we had 17 chances and lost same today we had 4 or 5 good chances we had them on the rack at times .Come January we need a goal scorer another Billy but that is easier said than done our performances are first class but our poor finishing could be costly.

Can't believe I'm so gutted about losing 1-0 to the European champions! 

 

From what I've seen, we're too good to go down. I can't see how we won't improve as the season goes on.

Cheer up mate can only think of a couple of clubs out of whole the english football scene who could have played them any better than us .It took a howler from a otherwise good goalie to see the European Champions come away with the points.They were lucky and without that mistake from Henderson who has been brill all season we would have shared the points.It is our finishing that at the moment is letting us down.Come back Billy we need you.

How do you know that they wouldn't have scored after the keepers gaff?

 

If I was a Unitedite my biggest worry would be goals, Mcburnie is a poor man's fletcher, the Moose runs about a lot but doesn't look like he's got many goals in him and the introduction of Clarke suggests the lack of a plan B!
