Blades V Villa.

Recommended Posts

If we keep Grealish quite, I'll go for at least 2 - 0.

 

Hoping that McGoldrick nets one?

We need to get winning at home again. Win this one and I think that might mean we've cemented our position for a second season in the Premier League. Our away run will come to an end at some point.

 

No Ming's apparently

Tough games these, as both want the points.

 

This is a big month. 2 out of the way (of which 4 points would have been good), and now 3 big games that could make or break for tense 2020.

 

Villa h

Brighton a

Watford h

 

9 points to be won now. I'd take 6 now from these.

Big month, big games, must win...

 

I think these phrases apply to every month and game tbh.  

 

I think 6 points is a good shout tbf.  We really ought to beat Watford - they are poor.  How we contrived to only draw with them at their place I don't know.  That's a definite 3 points for me.  I think Brighton away will yield nothing.  Our first away defeat of the season I fear.  Villa on saturday... home win!

I said this when the fixture list came out Derby. Yes, every game is important, and every month important of course...

 

but pre season, I wouldn't have estimated such a good start, so a month playing all the teams around us looked important then, and I still think important now. If we win the lot we could have a decent top half finishl if we lose all, in such a tight league, we could be in trouble with any injuries or suspensions.

 

Other than the bottom 2, which are far from relegated yet, everyone has almost 1 point per game, which 38 would be considered close.

 

I agree though, of these I think Watford, I'll be a bit unhappy with anything that a win. Of the other 2, I would fear Villa more, as we are doing better away, and Brighton look like a game we should be looking to win.

Sheffield United 2 Aston Villa 1.

What a great job Chris Wilder has done though, always find second season is the hardest for promoted clubs staying up.

Obvious really but all games at this level are hard. We'll lose games we are favourites to win and vice versa.  I can see us drawing today and winning at Brighton. Watford will be fighting for their life and the Blades have to match them.

 

Tyrone Mings is missing for Vile today

Nooooooooo! 

 

Lawrenson's got the Blades to win 2 - 1.

 

Or could it be he's right for the first time this season? 

 

From Lawrenson on BBC website;

 

"It feels like every time I tip Sheffield United to win - like I did for their last home game, against Newcastle - they end up getting beaten.

And every time I back their opponents to get something out of the game - like I did last weekend when they played Norwich - the Blades win."

 

I think we've already sussed that one, Lawrenson.

Another solid win and another huge 3 points!

 

First half again... We started quite tentative, whilst trying to figure one and other out. That said; we were the better team and it wouldn't have been an injustice, to have gone in at half time leading. We created chances as the game went on and we played some decent football, the off the ball movement again....a different class.

 

Second half.....again absolute class!

 

We took the bull by the horns, we put the ball around on the deck in swift little triangles, with such confidence! The passing play was absolutely beautiful, Villa didn't have a clue what to do with us or how to handle us!. The players work so hard for one and other, they chase things down, run through walls for one and other, absolute different class!

 

This system of ours......a few months in and they still don't know what to do with us! The runs down the wing, the quick passing play and the sheer speed of counter attacking play.  The ability to bring midfielders into the game, and to swiftly slide the ball around at the edge of the 18 yard box, stretching the opposition out of position and literally wearing them out. 

 

Listen; we will have blips and we will lose games, but we are doing everything right in achieving our number one target. Survival in this division is vital and will facilitate so much going forwards! We have proven ourselves as worthy contenders in this league, we aren't here to make the numbers up! We are part of this party of teams! We can compete with the majority and we can beat a good few too!

 

A special mention has to be made for McGoldrick again! He's missed a couple of sitters in the box again today, BUT he was absolute quality again. He ran through walls, he put himself about and won most things. His movement was a different class, both on and off the ball.......it will come Dave! You are doing everything right, you just need that bit of luck!......He is absolutely pivotal in this team, he is as important as the ones who are putting the ball in the back of the net....Flecky bagged two goals, but I would still put Dave forward for MOTM. 

 

I absolutely love this team!... Legends of the club for years to come! The epitomise everything that this club is about! They work hard, both individually and as a Unit. They play with so much passion! They would run through walls for the cause!

Blimey! What can I say other than, 5th in the Premiership! 

 

I'll not ruin the mood by mentioning the cheating, Bambi on ice diving Grealish but it looks like the old saying is true, cheats never prosper. 

 

How can Villa have spent £126 million on that rubbish when they could have bought a football team with the money.

You know what, Grealish is nothing short of frustrating. The lad has so much talent and is literally the engine of that Villa team, but his lightweight antics really soil him as a player. He has the potential to be one of the better midfielders in the premier league, not too sure about International regular, but on his day he warrants a sniff. But his antics? Seriously? If he applied that little extra energy into his performances, as opposed to theatrics..... he is costing himself big time.
