Ignoring the previous comments from the plastic part-time Blade who'd rather be Driving Miss Daisy around Derbyshire than supporting the Mighty Wizaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,
(Tin hat's on now)
Today we were getting back to our best, playing our usual game against a Dingle side who suggest that if they can have the season they had last season by playing like that, we should be OK!
They were woeful for 75 minutes and only came into the game when we sat off and let them have a go. We had several great chances, Duffy should have had a penalty, Brooks should have scored twice, Coutts should have had one, and Fleck and O'Connell went close. Sharp just failed to connect with one at the back post and we were just so much better than them until that last 15 minutes when I was convinced they would equalise.
Couldn't really see the sending off. Looked like Clarke reacted after a headbutt. Same ref who sent a snortbeast off last season for being fouled by someone else.
So Brooks looked lively when he came on, although a tackler he is not, Fleck put a great shift in as did the back 3, Sharp caused them all sorts of problems and Clarke had a great game until the red card.
Ched? After two very encouraging cameo appearances recently he got a great reception when introduced, and he almost got clear with a couple of really nice touches early on, but quickly looked completely knackered and exactly like a player who hasn't played at this level in many years. I still think we need a striker.
MOTM - Duffy, by a country mile, getting back to his best.
Jaipur, Chips and Curry, and the Blades winning at home. Proper Job.
