Riverside has always been a bit of a bogey ground for us.

I think we've only ever won there once.

yes, Fulwood
These are our possession stats since the start of the season. (from BBC website)
We've got to keep this up, and as we've seen since Peterborough, use that possession better - which we are now doing.
It's just more of the same - keep the ball, use it better when in possession and put the ball in the net - which we are now doing.

What could possibly go wrong...........!

Well it could, but I expect SJ to be pushing this now in training, we'll see key changes to teams in certain games as he rotates a few players, but hopefully more of the same that we've seen since Peterborough.

Birmingham (H) 76%
Swansea (A) 37%
West Brom (A) 65%
Huddersfield (H) 70%
Luton (A) 68%
Peterborough (H) 68%
Preston (H) 63%
Hull (A) 61%
Derby (H) 69%

I'd play Guedioura for this one - we need someone to play the Darren Bullock role away from home whilst we get our shit together.

Fancy us to do the job tonight.

3-1 (Sharp, MGW, Stevens)

Colin blames the referee.

Any idea why I can't seem to purchase a match pass for this? Or is it just the club being a bit slow updating the page? I am connected via VPN etc

We're going to need a more physical and aerial presence for this one. I'd have McBurnie, Guedioura and Basham in the starting line-up

And rightly so. It was an awful decision.
Matt Crooks's mum is a friend of mine (she was 4 years below me at boarding school) and she was at the Lane with her 2nd husband and their three sons who are all Blades. She showed me the footage of the incident and we agreed that the decision was harsh. Matt's sister sometimes go to the Lane.

After a worrying start to the season there‘s generally been an optimistic view on this board in recent weeks.
We’re finally starting to look like genuine promotion contenders.

As the recently departed Jimmy Greaves used to say “Football is a funny old game”
So my prediction is an uncomfortable 1-1 draw tonight or we could even lose 2-1…..this board is then full of “we’re not good enough“ etc etc
Then we follow up on Saturday by putting in our best display of the season beating league leaders AFC Bournemouth 2 or 3-0 on their own patch.
Then this board is full of “we’re going to go up as Champions” etc etc.

Will depend on what country you have your VPN set to it needs to be one that doesn't have the rights to show the match on TV. I think Cyprus is always an unsold territory as they have no rights to any Championship games.

EDIT: Just seen your later post 👍🏻

Funny how things turns out. We could effectively get Chris Wilder a new job by sending another ex Blade into “early” retirement. Apparently auld big nose is one defeat away from the tin tack.

Think Warnock doesn't quite carry the same fire and passion for management as he once did. Going 1-2 to the red and white wizards

Mentioned on a previous thread. Their fans seem to have a distinct lack of confidence in that team, hopefully the team have the same attitude.

Warnock will either be rallying the lads for a big one or maybe he's given up.
