Blades V Preston.

Recommended Posts

Not getting too excited yet but looking forward to the game a lot more.

Let's hope we can get some momentum going and climb the league.

Ordinarily you would expect to see a bit of rotation with a game only a few days later, but after Saturday's game, who do you take out of that XI?

 

Hopefully Davies is back and replaces Robinson. Not a fan of the latter, he has made too many individual errors to count and many have been costly. Saturday another example of this.

 

Hopefully we may see the introduction of Olsen as well, if he is cleared from his quarantine obligations. 

 

Billy may need a rest, after a whole hearted, typical Billy sharp performance.

 

Other than that, it's all one big guess. We have plenty of options for rotation really.

 

Berge and Hourihane on contention for starting berths.......

 

Another 3 points as said above, would be the momentum that we need...looking in front of us, a performance like Saturdays would hopefully make easy work of Preston, Hull  and Derby.

 

Come on you red and white wizards!

Why would a 34 year old need a rest after playing ninety mins football with a rest in between , they should try carrying the hod on building site for 44 hours a week or riding over the mountains for 8 hours a day in the Tour de France or maybe 12 rounds in a boxing ring with Clinton Woods . Thats what one calls being knackered .

1, he's 36.

 

2. It's completely different to working on a building site, carrying a hod.

 

Football is a high intensity workout, with quick bursts of energy and rapid movements and stretches. Players bodies are already conditioned to the highest of standards and science shows that the optimum recovery after a competitive game of professional football is 72 hours. Muscles obtain little tears and fibres, key vitamins and minerals are depleted from the body and there is a great deal of work that needs to go into prepping for the next game. 

 

Conditioning is an art and at 36 year old, playing on the the most competitive leagues in the world. Its a fine art  it has to be done carefully.

Carrying the hod involves climbing a 29 rung ladder with 108 lbs of bricks on ones shoulder , as well as that we have the gob which weighs round 60 lbs a climb, The bricklayers (also knackered after a hard day on the job)  are constantly calling for materials , the trips up the ladder can run into hundreds a day some times 6 days a week with a rest on Sunday .

 

The Tour de France , Spain and Italy cyclist climbs mountains that stretch into the clouds for 8 hours a day they burn 6 or7 thousand calories and have constantly eat and drink some of em have died in the saddle if not from fatigue then from crashing over mountain edges . Chris Froome has broken 27 different  bones as well as many dislocated shoulder injuries , his Welsh compatriot Gilain Thomas road the whole tour with a dislocated shoulder and fractured wrist last year so as not to let his team down .

 

Rocky Marciano was a light heavy weight boxer who was the only man ever to be un beaten in the Heavy weight division , He used to get beaten to a pulp in  nearly ever fight but went through the pain , ****e and blood to win , no complaints , no rests , no falling down rubbing his leg as though a bloooody horse had kicked him .

 

These guys had no muscle rest to fall back on , no hold on a minute while we have rest , They are hard men who no footballer can compare with . 

 

Ref ,Ref , he's tripped me up , Ref ,Ref he's pulled mi hair what a load of codswallop that is .

 

PS some of the cyclists are older than Billy Smart , most of the building , steel, and other manual workers have to go on til 65 if they last that long .

It takes a year to earn what Billy gets a week.

Love it “cuttsie”......

 

 

These footballers live a very charmed life indeed I was staying at a hotel not far from Sheffield and got talking to a Barnsley FC player back in 2018 anyway I asked him how many hours do you train a day he said “2-3 hrs a day” he then stated “he is totally bored” I then said how much are you on “8k a week with the biggest smile on his face” I choked then he said “that’s every week” !!!!....

 

Absolute p*** takers and then they have the audacity not to produce the goods on the pitch !!!!!.....

 

I also remember our school teachers telling us back in the 80s you will never make any money out of playing football you would be better off getting a trade oh how the table’s have turned !!!....

Bang on , My lot used to get me up int middle of the night ,dragging me down stairs wi no pijarmers on so as I could join the family who sat in a circle around the Pye radio that whistled and screeched .

This ritual was performed every time Rocky Marciano fought , 

I can hear the Yankie commentator now ,, "Rocky is down"    "Rocky is back on his feet"   "He lets a left go "   Now a right"  "Rocky's knocked him out " . 

Owt like those memories stick around until the big sleep comes .
