In my view Basham is a far better CB than midfielder - I'd much prefer to see him playing there.

With Heneghan rumoured to be going out on loan then we are light there, although interesting CW has said today that he doesn't intend to replace 2CV (which the more I hear I think has been 'sent' back rather than 'recalled') as Leonard can also play at CB.

Anyone heard anything more about this??


I read the same, don't know anything about the lad

He's an academy player - on trial at the moment - scored in the U23's at Bolton, alongside Ched. Another striker - not sure it's a critical position for us unless we've got players leaving - unless he's a real superstar in the making and he isn't going to break into the team due to 'The Special One' effect.

So Carter-Vickers has been recalled by Spurs, will it mean CW needs another CB?

This is an interesting one - he started well, but has been off form of late. With Wilson being allowed to leave we've all lost cover, however we do have both Heneghan and Wright for cover there already - do we bring more cover in, rely on the youth team, or look to actually strengthen the squad and if so who do you drop? 

If anyone else wants adding to the WhatsApp group, make sure I have your mobile number (cell number for you US types  :whi)- oh yes, and you have WhatsApp set up on your phone!!

Rumours suggest we've agreed a fee for Ryan Leonard and we've had a bid rejected for Josh Windass of Glasgow Rangers

I believe £800k and he's in Sheffield now.

Doesn't Ash live in the area now?

If so, get him to visit every pub & restaurant within a 10 mile radius.

He already has - it's just whether he can remember them (or wants to!!)

Well on the doorstep you’ve got The Yorkshire Bridge for decent beer but The Ladybower does better food - IMHO. Haven’t been for years, but The Cheshire Cheese at Castleton used to be really good

I paid particular attention to Lundtram's game today. Let's be honest, after an iffy start he's growing rapidly into his role. His stats show he makes as many forward runs and forward passes as Coutts, but today he really made that count. He was everywhere he needed to be. In the box for his goal, and in his own box making a brilliant sweeper's intervention. For the first hour of the game it was uncanny that wherever the key parts of the game were being played out, Lundstram was there and involved. Yes he made a couple of errors, but the fact is he didn't hide, and if you ALWAYS show for the ball, it's inevitable you're going to make the odd mistake. Overall the lad was brilliant today and while I totally understand he was up against some proper dogshit, he was, in my opinion, the best player on the pitch.

What he said!!!

Saw this little nugget on Twitter as well which made me smile.......

Just sayin’

I don't think he'd want to leave - playing in a team that's giving him the form of his life, rapidly becoming a fans favourite and has a formidable strike partnership in an up and coming team that plays attacking football.

The only reason he would leave would be a silly offer in wages that Utd couldn't match and at 32 he's having a last minute payday.


What is that net spend made up of? just transfer fees? wages? total expenditure for the club.......price of the cleaners?

Hopefully the only time that lot are above us in the league!

Been doing the math. KO 5:30, HT 6:17 (assume 2 mins added on). 2nd Half KO 6:32, final whistle 7:21 (4 mins added on). Get back to car 7:31.  Get back to pick missus up 8:01 (pushing it). Quick wash and change. Leave 8:20. Arena car park for 8:40. In seat for 8:50. Killers start 9:00 (miss support band but never heard of her to be honest). 

It's tight but not impossible.  I might even do it if I leave early (despite the wrath of my fellow Blades).

Now - all I need is to convince the missus it'll all work smoothly on the night  :^^

Pop her in the Copthorne bar with a bottle of bubbles for the afternoon - solves two problems - 1) she's happy cos she's got bubbles on her anniversary and 2) you don't need to waste 30 mins going to pick her up, thereby building your contingency in for getting to the arena........good god I'm dealing with amateurs - good job it's a service I provide for free!!!

Now - for those who aren't lightweights and feel they can make it for a few extra beers on Saturday, that dude from Southampton and my good self will be meeting up in The Bath around 2pm for a few quality beers and maybe a hot roast pork sarni - the last one was particularly good......

Thought we had a few players with off games last night (Lundstrum wasn't one of them!), but if you could be proud of the team losing, that was the game. You cannot fault the effort and fight in this team.

I likened it to a heavyweight boxing fight where both fighters just went at each other full on and sod the defence - I guess the 4-5 scoreline bears that out!! Must have been a great game for a neutral to watch.

The Fulham players at the end were completely done in and if you'd just walked into the ground at the final whistle you'd think we were the team that had won! Fulham certainly knew they'd been in a game last night. As Lings said, I'd say they were the best team I've seen us play this season - at one point in the first half it looked like a Premier League vs a League One side, which this fixture would have been last season. Also like Lings, they were in my aka as a promotion team this season and they showed last night that with effort and commitment they can deliver.

The biggest downer for me last night was The Tap - some truly awful beers last night - the last pint even being left with just a sip from it.....at least that wasn't the one the Icelandic sour IPA they charged £8.80 a pint for (obviously think they're still in Iceland at those prices!!)

Onwards and upwards - bring on Birmingham. 5.30 kick off so could be in an interesting tangle by the time kick off comes around!!!

Gutted for Coutts  :(

Think the "team" is strong enough to carry on performing well though  :ok:

Anyways, roll on Tues and the Fulham match.........Tap at 6.10?? God I need a beer or two  :ok:

See you there (maybe a little bit before - for that 5th Lings mentioned!!)

That looks out for the season to me - huge loss

Wendy fixture at the Lane moved to a Friday night for Sky - that’s not going to be carnage at all now is it??!!
