Is it Saturday yet - god I need a Blades fix........aint it great to feel that and be looking forward to a game rather than thinking I wonder if we might turn up this week and make my weekend!!

Pre match plans anyone?
Is the Donkey joining us?
Is that nutter from the south coast avoiding a sore arse and actually going to attend a match (have to say the extra elbow room has been quite nice  :DD?)

Back to The Bath or frequenting somewhere else? 

England are 25/1 to win next years World Cup.

For those who don't understand betting, that means that if you put £10 on for England to win......

........you will lose £10  :whi :roll:

Sharp has a rib injury but should be fit for Ipshit....Clarke had only just come back from injury himself so not surprised if he got a strain. Donaldson isn't fully match fit but hopefully will be sharp enough come next game. Evens is having his op during this break so he'll be out for a bit. I would have played Brooks though, a lad on fire, why protect him? get games under his belt and raise his value and then tell Everton, Liverpool or whoever to feck off in Jan. We certainly need some luck with injuries, it seems every other game we get one and it's frustrating.

I’m concerned that with the high tempo game we’re playing (and having to do much more work/running in this league) we’re going to be susceptible to injuries this season.

Read this post on another site. Had to share.......written from the heart and so true!

Thank you Chris - For making us United.

Born 1987 - I like to think I speak on behalf of anyone my age or younger (and possibly even older) when I say this is the most enjoyable football I have witnessed since Spackman, the most effective football since Warnock, and the most focused, organized, talented and committed I've ever seen at the Lane.

You understand Sheffield, our culture and our people, and you make it work to your advantage. 25,000 moaning fans, the poison chalice, a sinking ship... no one wanted this job. Except for you - you wasn't having any of it. You made a city believe when most thought hope had gone. For me this is already the best team I have had the PRIVILEGE to watch at Sheffield2 -  and no one can ever take that away.

As someone who sat crying in the stands with his dad as a ten year old boy against Palace in 97, to crying pretty much for the next ten years up to Wolves in 03 and Burnley in 08, it hasn't been easy.
But thanks to you I almost shed a different type of tear in the second half against Wolves on Wednesday night.
It felt like drawing a curtain on 29 years of either shit football, shit players, or shit results.
I never thought I'd see the day - we out passed, we out played, we out worked, we out defended, we out thought our opponent (a very good opponent) and we were always in control.

For anyone else who was there for that dark, dark day under Nigel the last game of the 15/16 season - it would have been impossible to predict we'd be here with you now.  If you offered me 1000 to 1 I wouldn't have took, mainly because I'm tight but also because I wouldn't want to waste a quid!

Yet... sat in Leppings Lane on Sunday, you could still hear blades carry the scars of yesterday "we'll throw it away" "hope they can keep a point" but I don't feel like that anymore, not with you in charge. It's not arrogance, but you've instilled belief - and slowly but surely, game by game, win by win, week by week, you're changing a victim and pessimist culture into a crowd of believers. A United and Happy crowd. We've had some shit over the years, as well you know, but somehow we're all starting to let that go.

Man management, game management, respect from the players, love from the stands - you really have it all. This is a new United, one you're creating. I'm just happy to be alive on your march. You're getting us exited.

Thank you Chris - for making us United.

Does he go straight back in, or Start from the bench?

Not my work, but read this and thought it was funny so I’d share:

What a fairytale story at the moment..we met the little piggies and sent them bouncing home with their little tale between their legs..then the big bad wolves came and huffed and puffed but couldn't blow Bramall lane down..now it's time to meet little red riding hood down at the FOREST...what a story so far..to be continued..UTB.

Well - thoroughly enjoyed last night and once again we seem to have played a team who’ve had a nightmare - we must be so lucky to be playing all these teams just at the right time!!

Can’t add much more than Lings really - but oh my god Coutts is becoming a sensation!

In fairness to the Wolves fans though, some very magnanimous views posted post match, in complete contrast to many of our poor suffering downtrodden neighbours

I know Sharp is on a bit of a rehabilitation plan right now which has about a week to run, but when he’s fully match fit, does he really get back in the side. First half in particular, the link up play between Clarke and Brooks was excellent - look like a really good partnership. That starting spot is theirs to lose for me right now.

Florist only gave us 2000 tickets, all gone.

Anyone fancy the beamback? £7 and beer in your seat?

Sadly I've been roped in for my nieces 'Unicorn' birthday party..............don't ask!!!  :yikes:The only upside being that her Dad is a Wendy fan and it will be the first time I've seen him since the weekend  :whi :whi

Tremendous stuff - love it!

Love the fact that #bouncingdaymassacre is now trending in more than 15 countries around the world
The fact that somewhere in a remote part of Kansas, the Australian outback, Estonia, Poland, Germany, Turkey, Dublin and Timbuk-fooking-too there's someone watching the Massive Bouncing Twats suddenly stop and cry makes me warm inside...  :ok:

Wednesday really are massive now.  Global in fact  :DD :DD :DD

Van Aken getting quite a slating in both Holland and Sweden as well from what I can see - assuming Google translate works correctly, since I speak neither language!
