    Afternoon all,

    Still feeling bad about the Villa game? Blades AnalyticsBlades Analytics and I attempt to accentuate the positives (and, of course, break down the negatives) from a wild match. We talk about:
    • how we blew that game (05:03)
    • Dean Henderson's performance and fallout (13:35)
    • whether the wheels are about to fall off the season... (19:30)
    Then:
    • A hot take about our automatic promotion chances (23:20)
    • Strong performances from Madine and Dowell (32:56)
    • Billy Sharp's century of goals (38:35)
    • And finally, a preview of the Boro game midweek (46:25)

    Thanks as always for listening - personally felt better after this one, so hopefully you will too ;) Pleased to say I'm chatting to Sam from DEM BLADES later in the week after the Boro game, so look out for that one then.

    Excellent as ever although I fear that Jay has woken the footy gods for a Boro set piece goal.

    I attempted to counteract it by all-but guaranteeing Aden Flint scoring

    Great listen, did actually cheer me up
    You sometimes lose sight of how much we've achieved and how far we've come

    Sorry for being thick but what was the 'silver tick' tweet referred to in the podcast? Was it something Bullen put out about us?

    Think it was a green tick actually, or it depended on your device! Yeah Bullen just tweeted a tick emoji immediately after we’d drawn... :tumbleweed:

    This sentence would have made zero sense ten years ago.

    Cheers lads,listened going up the A1 to County Durham with work...only problem it timed out before Scotch Corner,i could have done with a bit longer.
    Agree with your comments on the Villa game,i thought the same,we panicked and gave the ball away,gave free kicks away and let them back in...but if Hendo deals with the corner,i think it could well have finished 3-0.

    Really interesting stuff, so professional and informative, keep up the excellent work.

    Once the dust settles your words are fair and highlight that the positives massively outweigh any negatives.
    Made me feel better, thanks.

    Probably his greatest achievement in many years as a complete football nonentity.

    Thanks again great listen. Interested to hear Boro really aren’t that good from crosses. The reference to their 1-0 wins is what I think the score will be unfortunately :(

    I have more faith for the Reading game though !

    Good podcast again, I really enjoyed it. You made me feel like we were lucky to get a point from Friday. Flint will definitely score.

    Interesting as always - but I don’t blame Deano for the second - at least he pushed it sideways and not forwards like he did with the previous freekick.

    Look at this still - and at the 4 players at the far post with Abraham behind them. Four (FOUR) players watching the ball and ignoring probably the most valuable striker in the league.

    Face forwards like proper defenders then you see him and simply block him off. Totally unprofessional from 4 players at once.

    For me this was the moment that we lost the 2 points - and the great thing is that this is easy to change.

    The Magic will be back Tonight

    Listened to this. Very refreshing to hear sensible discussion, including puncturing a few fans’ fallacies. No knee-jerking, no Bladey Inferiority Complex, no self-indulgent petulance.

    I didn’t agree with every single word, but you’re young and willing to learn...
