Before the season started I had Fulham in my 3 tips for promotion. Tonight they finally showed that they have the quality to achieve it.

For them, Sessegnon and Ojo were excellent, but throughout the team they were faster, more determined, and showed better quality and intelligence on the ball throughout.

On a night when we were up against the best side I've seen this season, too many players had an off day. Carter-Vickers had a 'mare, giving away the first goal with that catastrophically lame back-pass and being nowhere at all when the ball went across for their 3rd. Down the right side of our defence was a huge gap that they just kept running into. It was easy.

Sharp had a very off night, so too Brooks when he came on. Unlike Vamps I thought Fleck had a decent game but Duffy just wasn't at the races. Lundstram was his usual steady self but no more.

We only looked a threat when Hanson came on for the hoof, and Carruthers had a very decent cameo.

I feel sorry for Leon Clarke - a hat-trick but on the losing side?

Ref was poor but not in a way that changed the game. We were beaten by the better side and I have no complaints. As Wilder says, so far this season every point we've won, we've deserved, and tonight was a continuation of that.

Sort that defence out Chris, it's only 1 game but there were some things to be concerned about.

We'll probably need 4 more goals on Saturday with Che Adams in town!

... or 5

What I like about Brooks is he seems to have been given permission to play wherever the game is being played, so he drifts around but is starting to build that disciplined approach to getting back and covering where needed. His progress is amazing and he's going to be a PL regular for sure. Bale's replacement at Real?  ;D

If the club seriously considers anything under £20m for him they want shafting up the wrong 'un with a big knobbly stick

Had to love this from an article on Newsnow:

So a guy puts 90 pence on an 11 match accumulator at the weekend

At one stage, he's offered £1750 as a cash out for his 90p and he lets it go because a couple more scores go his way. He's holding out for £250,000 and it all looks like he's going to spank the bookies for a quarter of a million BUT......

Leon Clarke scores 4, so the ONLY ONE match that lets him down is Blades v Hull and who does the guy support? YES! Hull City!  :DD :DD :DD :DD :DD

He made a great comment afterwards, saying if it had come in he could have bought his own house and a Range Rover but now he has to stay with his mum and drive a Corsa  :DD :DD

hahahaha - we had that conversation in the pub before the game about the "mauled by the tigers" chant - utterly embarrassing!

I think Brooks is a more direct cover for Duffy

Agreed Roma, which is why I said "Duffy is keeping Brooks out of the team"  ;D ;D

I agree on Thomas too - he looks a very capable player. Maybe he could cover for Fleck if he has a tackle in him? He seems a strange signing to be honest because we just don't use wingers.

Just read a Hull fan's blog on the match.

1. They deserved to be in front
2. They should have had a penalty
3. The referee was biased in our favour
4. They never get anything from refs at Bramall Lane
5. Finally he admits they were awful second half but despite saying the Hull MF was in full flow in the first half he gives SUFC no credit for the turnaround
6. Even after his team shipped 4 goals in one half he still referred to us (3 times at least) as "The Blunts"

Some people just aren't ready for day-release

A great win against a pretty poor side, and it could have been an absolute embarrassment for them if their keeper hadn't made some fantastic saves (with Blackman only on loan maybe we should look for a top quality keeper like him).

Burton, Fulham, Birmingham to come next. Anywhere between 7 and 9 points from those three will do for me  ;D

Wolves back on track last night so we're 5 points off the top this morning. Hopefully CW has the Blades back to their best today and we can cut the gap back to 2.


Bassett was long gone when Fjortoft and Saunders arrived mate, Harry left in '95 and those two signed in '97

I see Carruthers as cover for Duffy, Lundstrum cover for Fleck/Coutts although Bash is perfectly good there as defensive cover (I prefer him CB or CMF rather than makeshift wing back)

Holy Crap! They'll be bussing in rozzers from 7 counties!

(Happy Birthday Vamps ??? )

Stabs I don't think Carruthers has done anything wrong, Duffy is just having the best season of his life. I trust Carruthers, and also Duffy is the player keeping Brooks out of the starting 11 so there's another quality bit of cover.

I'm a great believer in not screwing up a tightly-knit group in the dressing room, so I think Cole would be a great addition, and I honestly can't think of anything else we need for now.

The Bassett years I'll never forget. I'm happy to accept they might not have actually been as good as I might remember with my selective memory, but bloody hell did we have some good times with Harry, and over many years too.

I love CW and what he's achieved so far. I believe he can usurp Bassett as the best we've had, but there's still some way to go yet before he takes the mantle. I truly hope Wilder becomes the legend he appears to be becoming. Bassett for me will always be the man who gave me the best years of my life as a Blade.............so far.

You're being ultra-paranoid.

....aren't you?

tbh get Devante Cole in and we'll be OK with what we've got
