Sheffield United V Relegation

Recommended Posts

Short memories methinks. I'm not wavering in my admiration for Wilder. He signed "pub players' who looked very comfortable amongst the best players in the country. This wasn't luck. He has a recruitment strategy that has worked like a dream at a good few clubs. Players appear to be 'oven ready' (Boris's term) on their first outing, and they properly scared established Premier clubs. Going through a hiccup at the minute, but there's absolutely no cause for concern. You'll be reyt.

Must win game for united against Fulham on Sunday and to be fair they should beat them but you never know. I expect berge to do his usual trotting about for 90 mins and produce nothing.

No danger. Blades may have had a awkward start but I fully expect them to finish mid table. Regardless of tomorrow’s result.

Totally agree.  I'll settle for an undisputed VAR 1-0 goal & 3 points.

It's been a tough start, no doubt about it.  Egan's crazy red card against Villa didn't help in that game, and losing Jack O'Connell long term, and  Lys Mousset and John Fleck short  to medium term is causing us headaches.  We don't have the strength in depth of other teams (Arsenal bringing on a 70 million quid player, off the bench, a few weeks ago!) and that is just a  fact of life we have to deal with.

 

I think it will get worse before it gets better, but as Aston Villa know very well, sometimes you just need a bit of luck to stay up in this league.

We need the rub of the green.

Heard Wilder this morning say Mousset is a good 6 weeks+ from setting foot on a pitch for training.  Then he'll have to get fully match fit. 

 

I think at that rate, it'll be mid January at the earliest before we see him?

Every time someone gets injured it seems as if it a major blow.  I can see it with JOC, but Mousett was used sparingly, and not really trusted for 90 mins anyway!  We've got 2 other forwards in anyway in Burke and Brewster, so even fit he may not have got on the pitch.   Fleck is out, but had not been first choice shortly before he got injured. Moore is only 3rd choice keeper, and the new fullback was in his first game!

 

Nobody seems to want to mention Covid either.  Around 8/10 players a week are  testing positive for COVID in Premier League squads - so expect to see odd omissions from match-day squads from players.  Whether the clubs will tell us, or hide behind "minor knocks", "personal reasons", or similar, I don't know.

Bit early to say we are going down, but the Blades are definitely going to have a hard season. Can CW turn it round, will the board stick by him and who would take over if his services are dispensed with. Finishing 4th from bottom will satisfy many including me. So many questions to answer. Funny old game, a couple of good results and confidence will increase. What must be upsetting for both CW and the players is the fact they are not getting hammered, playing well, but losing, should have got something out of last nights game.
