Sheffield United V Relegation

Recommended Posts

The fact that we have a thread on here, shows the concern over the threat of relegation but hopefully we can turn it around?  For me, it's easier to stay in the Premiership, (you only have to make sure you're above 3 other teams), than to battle your way out of the Championship? 

 

However, the managerial merry-go-round usually kicks in around game 10 & if you look at our next 7 games, the way we're playing at the moment, realistically, we only stand a chance of getting anything out of 3 of those, against, Fulham, West Ham & West Brom?  Although of course, it's football, it can be unpredictable, as we know. 

 

After 3 games, given the opposition we've faced, realistically at worse, I'd have thought we'd have at least been on 4 points?

A goalscorer is vital for any team  and blades have lacked one since the start of last season, finishing 9th last year is history now. We've needed a goalscorer since the start of last season,  and yet we still haven't sorted it one year on, too many lads signed imo who CW thinks he can polish up from a pebble to a gold nugget, Morrison, Bryan,Rodwell,Mousset etc, this is the premiership and we need to sign quality. I know its hard for CW to spend the cash, but what are the alternatives, relegation?, we aren't going to be able to spend £40m on a player so I'd try for someone like Deeney,  a proven scorer with premiership experience,  offer £10m plus bonuses for staying up, ok wages might be £5m a year,  but what are we paying Jags to sit on the bench?, and that  £15m could mean survival , so its covered!, I'm afraid Mcgoldrick, Mousset & McBurnie aren't the answer,imo

I'd of expected you to be on 3 at least. Wolves was always going to be tough but you'd of expected to beat villa and Leeds before the season kicked off. Villa you should really of took a point even with the sending off and Leeds you deserved a point by sounds of it. Maybe with a decent goalscorer in there you might of got the 4 points you'd of expected.

If Sturridge is the answer, I can't understand what the question must be.

What about proven goalscorers, currently playing in decent football leagues?  Pukki at Norwich for example

Well I said the moment that Norwich's relegation was confirmed, Utd should have made a double swoop for Pukki & his mate, Hernández.

Apparently we enquired about Pukki and he is happy to stay at Norwich for the time being, or at least until the next window so that he can see what position the club are in. The player loves the club and has loyalty that you don't generally see these days, fair play to him.

Goals were lacking last season, and even worse now.

 

Just seen where McBurnie is saying Swans' fans wouldn't recognise him now from the player he was at The Liberty.

 

True.  Hardly gets a start, and hardly scores.  Poor signing.

Sundays game is a must win, lose this one and my worst fears will be coming true.

As he said, the 2 clubs play very differently.  As Swansea, the ball was played up to him through the middle and he held it up and brought others in play from the front.  Now he's used as a target from the flanks, into a crowded defence, with usually nobody there to help him!

 

Perhaps now clubs know how we play, we ought to mix it up a bit, get the ball to him early in attacks, with midfield runners breaking off him through the middle. at times.
