Banter / Re: New season, New League, New Banter thread - Championship Banter 2017

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

I thought we were off of our usual game first half, we still deserved a couple of goals though. Their goal happened because of poor positioning from Moore but other than  that they were very poor. Second half though we were back to that high pressing, high intensity game and Hull couldn't live with us or Clarke and for me was MOTM by a country mile. I said to my mate before the game that Clarke needed a goal today but I didn't expect 4 from him, when was the last time one of our strikers got 4...I can only remember Edwards v Gillingham in 1983 was it? Can we keep this up? hell yes but we need some top transfer action in Jan to give us a bigger chance.

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.

COYRAWW !!!!!

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

I'm hopeless when trying to remember when players / managers came and went. Suppose not going to BL regualarly after 1994 doesn't help.

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)

For me Curruthers isn't direct cover for Fleck but I agree he hasn't done nothing wrong. Duffy ATM is hard to replace he's on such good form and 'The Kid' is being deployed more up front of late. Cole or similar would add something to the forward line options. I'm sure CW has his eye on a couple of players and may even go back for the lad at Charlton in Jan.

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.

We had some cracking players under Bassett like Agana, Deane, Hodges, Bradders, Whitehouse, Fjortoft, Saunders etc mixed in with grafters like Booker etc
