Take nothing away from the result, regardless of VAR decisions ( which to be fair have gone against us more than for us this season). We were the better team and we deserved all three points, I am 100% adamant of that fact.

 

After a pretty lacklustre first half of gauging one and other, the second half was a completely different Sheffield United performance. A performance that to be fair doesn't really surprise, as it was one that we have become accustomed to. Relentless counter attacks because countless waves of pressure and West ham simply didnt know hope to cope or deal with it. Our marauding wing backs and trademark attacking CB's adding a dimension to the game, that had West Ham rattled and panicking at times.

 

Professional, trademark Sheffield United again. Fantastic way to bounce back from the hardest fixtures of the season back to back. It doesn't end here with a couple of tough fixtures in front of us, but again I reiterate our season goal. We are very much nearly there, we just need to kick on and bag some more points to see us over the line. Historically 10 points would pretty much guarantee this, but let's aim higher. Let's aim for a comfier end to the season, let's aim for 15-20 points. Once we are mathetically in a decent position, let's aim to get as many points on the board in this unbelievable season as physically possible!

 

West ham are rumoured to be signing a player with a price tag of £120m. Our squad tonight, with a total value of around a 1/5 to a 1/4 of that. They simply can not buy what we have!.....and to put the cherry on the top of the cake!...The messiah himself, Super Chrissy Wilder, commits himself to the club until 2024!! Unbelievable!! Fantastic!!

Not the best home performance of the season so far but I think the most important.

West Ham came to stifle our style and it worked to a degree. We battled well and got a well worked goal to seal the result

First half if worked, second half we unlocked them and could have had a few more.

Good result, but down West Ham keeper error ashocking goal from that point. Can't fault Utd for their work rate in games, highlights of the goal

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.

As Wilder said last night i think the result was more important than the performance.

Ive seen us play better this season and lose ,but West Ham didn't look up to much and to draw the game with a last minute equaliser would have been cruel.I wonder if Karma (VAR)  has decided to play a trump card and relegate West Ham by the  single point they thought they had secured last night?

Again VAR is the talking point when it shouldn't be. Any sane fan would say the goal should of stood, unfortunately because of how the handball rules are VAR correctly ruled it out. They really need to look at the offside and handball rules as how their using it with VAR isn't fit for purpose.

Having said that I don't think West ham deserved a point so looking at it like that it stopped you losing out on 2 points

Agree. The offside and hand ball decisions are ludicrous. Until this season, à forward was considered onside if he was level with a defender, now if he's a thumbprint beyond its offside. The lad last night did not intentionally handle, " ball on hand".

The law regarding handball states that any goal scored or created with the use of the hand or arm will be disallowed, "even if it is accidental "

There's the problem with it. It's not always possible to move it out of the way and open to abuse by opposing players
