Their manager has probably never seen us play live, just videos. Sunday night, long way up from London, freezin' cold, possible snow in the air. Some of their fancy Dan's might not like it. Some of those same fancy Dan's will expect they only have to turn up to get 3 points.

Blades 2-1 win, Fleck m.o.m

We desperately need Sander Berge back in the side fit and firing.

If he could recapture his form right at the start of the season, and slot between an in form Fleck and Lunny, all of a sudden that’s a reasonable midfield.

Has to be Sharp n Dids up top to start. Has to.

I reckon Kean Bryan will replace Amps at LCB with the fittest of Enda Lowe and Ossie at LWB.

Difficult call at RWB if both players fit and available. GB for me just if he is OK.

Rest picks itself.

We need to try and finish 18th as the short term goal Wilder set and hope at team in the bottom half gets 6 or 7 from there last 15/16. It has happened. Burnley are very up and down with form. Zaha and Wilson are injured. Who says Wolves are over there nad run. Saints will be damaged mentally as well and have lost 5 in a row including a 9-0 and 9 man Newcastle. The only bottom half teams we wont get are Leeds and Brighton

So winning is becoming something we've shown we can do with 5 wins in the last 7 I think. Obviously Chelsea present a stern test, and perhaps it's a shame Lampard isn't still in charge for this one...



Anyway...



Any team news?



Ampadu cannot feature..



Stevens fit?



Baldock injured?



Osborne likely to start..?



Other results are certainly not doing us much favours and we've given ourselves far too much to do... But that's all we can focus on so hopefully a Blades victory tonight... 1 nil.

Worried about our left side today, I think we need a more defensive minded LWB rather than Lowe or Bogle.

Without Ampadu, and with James bombing down their right, I'd much rather see Osborn back than any other of our lefties including Enda.

Another one where the first priority is not to get dicked 5-0 with anything better being a bonus.

"If you are going to lose you might as well lose properly and try and sneak a win" - (Attrb' to Geoff Boycott) :D

It's a great time to play Chelsea but it's still Chelsea. They seem to be concentrating on defence first so probably be a close game, in terms of the score anyway.
