What a goal from McNulty, but after that didn't we just give them possession, time after time?

No idea how we won.

Is it some master plan I don't get?

(But what a goal from McNulty.)

away wins are like that take your chances you get points , took some time but we are learning how to do it

How many times do arsenal chelsea man utd only seem to play for 30% of games but win
bbc says they had 53 to 47% possession so did what we had to do

Terrific three points for The Blades tonight and great support again by the sound of it. Hat's off to all of you who travelled.

See yers at Crawley on Saturday.

Thought we played quite well away at a decent side, didn't like our fans a) getting on players backs for the slightest imperfection while winning away b) taking piss out of their support, I know its the standard but just support our team, accept most home supports shit including ours, and that we're playing clubs with small fan bases who should be respected for not supporting Man U/City.

Liked Brayfords celebration and the players coming over as a team at the end, I often think away sides at bramall lane do that more than our players, so it was a nice touch.

As to 'how did we win that?' We were the better team for the most part, sides will always have a spell, need to accept that. Players tired as is to be expected but overall a deserved win in my eyes.

Agree with that some players visibly tired and some had off nights. Doyle and Kennedy the pick for me.

We played far too many long balls. There was a guy close to me (S block) who was screaming blue murder for us to get it down and start playing football. Then right in front of us there was good interplay maybe Murphy, Coutts and Harris, the ball was then played to Doyle who brought in Brayford. Result was the second goal.

Whoever that bloke was should take a bow.

Haven't seen any replays but in real time I thought Harris was slow in closing down their player who crossed for their goal.

We need to learn how to remain comfortable on the ball even when the opposition are closing us down quickly. Coventry used the same tactic at the weekend

They didn't give us any space at all which is fair enough, that's how you stop so called better teams from beating you. Our answer seemed to be to either hoof it up to McNulty / Done or play the old diagonal hoof into the corner, neither which worked for most of the night. Our best two incisive bits of passing and play resulted in the two goals. It was job done and we were far from convincing possession wise but 3 points.

Great ball from Bobby for the 1st but I haven't seen mention of the great touch by McEveley to give him the ball, most expected a hoof but he did a great reverse pass to the whispering one.

Bigger picture, not sure, we will be hard to beat but teams know if they cut off the supply to Murph and hassle us, they've got half a chance, particularly as we can't seem to keep a clean sheet at the moment. The pit of the stomach play-off feeling is starting to appear :(

We seem to have started hoofing it into the channels.

Results say it's working, just don't get how.
Must be tempting, especially with Done on the pitch. His speed and willingness to run mean--among other things--that we always have a viable out-ball into the channels, which is another thing we've been lacking since forever.

This is a good thing ! Hope we don't become too over-reliant on it.

There won't be any mention of good play from McEveley. The Bladey Blades have decided that TK must play, so J-Mac has to be shite. Simple as that. It's the Bladesfans' Way.
