Blades V Norwich

Recommended Posts

After Thursday night, a win is a must.  I'll go 2-1 Blades only because in Pukki & Hernández, Norwich can still threaten.

Going to this one but not that optimistic. Another draw would suit me. Of course if they fanny about in defence like they are prone to it might play right into our hands. Mousse and Goldie to start.

Needed that win. Draws no good. Clear gaps opening up at bottom of league.  Bournemouth seriously in trouble. Villa hit for 4 today. Norwich and Watford on danger of becoming detached.

 

Some suspensions coming up. Might be opportunity to introduce Freeman, Osborne and Besic. Give Norwood a well earned rest

Brilliant result after a shocking first half. Makes up for Thursday! Still unbeaten away which is crazy for a newly promoted side.

I don't think Watford or Norwich will stay up so United just need to be better than one other below them to stay up, unless you completely lose form

Norwich on the road, the original bogey team...and let's not forget the added pressure of having to bounce back from a poor result.

 

First half was tentative and we looked a bit on the shakey side. We allowed the home team time to play, we didnt close down quick enough and we gave away possession way to easily.

 

Out of sorts and uncharacteristic, probably as a direct result on early nerves. But.....knowing how we can play and what we are capable of, I didnt have us written off at 1-0 down. Our bounce-back-ability being on of the positive traits, that led us into the top flight in the first place.

 

Second half......

 

Huge transformation into the Blades team that we all know and love! Put the ball around swiftly and clinically. Nothing but attacking minded, positive football. Breaking in numbers with fantastic off the ball movement.

 

We could and perhaps should have had 3 or 4 in that second half and the lack of clinical finishing in front of goal needs addressing before it bites us on the backside again. But; we were in complete control of the game and norwich didnt pose a threat for this reason. McGoldrick could shoulder a bit of blame for not hitting the target, but that would be extremely harsh IMHO. His off and on the ball movement today being pivotal in allowing midfield and full backs to venture forwards. He was a key player and pivotal cog in the way that we went about business today.

 

The confidence, flair and passing play that we execute, is more than worthy of this league. Had Baldock's goal today, been a household name....they would be talking about it all day. Mo Salah executed a tidy little back heeled assist last night and they were all talking about it, big dave mcgoldrick executed similar today in build up to the VAR decision.....this will no doubt go without any serious mention.

 

A huge result, possibly a key result come the end of the season! To bounce back in such manner, against a bogey team like Norwich! Absolutely fantastic! Overjoyed! 

 

On to the next one now with confidence back on board! The season target being 40 points, we are half way there! Keep up the work boys!!

We've no reason to look down whilst ever we are getting points on the board! We only need to start looking down, should we go on a prolonged run of poor results.

 

At the minute, if we continue doing what we are doing....then we have no worries what so ever. We don't need to adopt a negative head as we are more than holding our own in this league!

Brilliant result.

 

There have been many times over the past 3 years I have questioned whether this 'journey' can continue.

 

At half time today following the disappointment of Thursday I once again asked the questions. But I should have known better. What a team, manager and backroom staff we have. 

 

Plus thanks to all the travelling Blades who represented us this afternoon.

Overly negative that to be honest and I appreciate your intention wasn't to criticise.

The table doesn't lie so that third club would be Southampton, their fans are convinced of it. Bournemouth have lost five in succession. Personally i'd like Aston Villa or Everton to go down

Great win for the Blades. Incredible that at this stage of the season Blades start today four points off relegation and end up two points off a Europe place. Think it's going to be tight till the end of the season.

I've said many times before and during the season you've every chance of stating up. Most club's have a loss of form at some point which could see you dragged into it, it isn't a big points difference either way. I'd like Everton to go down tbh but I'd say Southampton or Bournemouth are more likely than them.

 

The target is to stay up so I don't think it's negative saying what I did. No blades would complain if you finished 17th
