By the way, Satdi this is what I'd do:

1. I think Baldock will be fit so he goes into RWB

2. Bashembauer anchors CMF

3. Carruthers starts alongside Duffy higher up

Then, either CCV is given a chance to redeem himself, or Heneghan gets his chance.

Of course the alternative sees Bashembauer taking CCV's place which allows Lundstram to anchor the CMF

OR we go full fat attack and have Brooks, Duffy AND Carruthers in MF  :ok:

2pm?  :yikes:

So only an hour later than normal for drinks before a match that kicks off 2 and a half hours later than normal?

Holy Shit 90 minutes more drinking time than usual?

I can't do 2pm. It'll be at least 10 past  :ok:

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......

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!!)

Told you mate, the awful beers were to make the Fulham fans feel at home and the London prices too  :whi

Re the Brum game I'm still gutted as originally it fell nicely as I'm up to see the Killers at the Arena Saturday.  Thanks to Sky it's giving up my tickets for the Killers or the unusual feeling of being in Sheff and not at the match...  If the tickets weren't an Anniversary present I know what I'd be doing.  )O(

Na na na na he's a ....OH!  ::)

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.

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