Sheffield United v Bristol City Match Day 37

Recommended Posts

*taps OTIB* - testing, testing, 1, 2, 3

Well blow me down and call me Theresa May. It's been a minute since this last happened. 18 days to be factual.

It's recap time. We've had (in no particular order)...

  1. The robin badge/new shirt introduction
  2. The swansea arrestee and subsequent ban
  3. The England U21 game
  4. Kalas scoring at Wembo
  5. The guy that forgot he shouted a racist chant and didn't get banned (at time of writing). 
  6. Another suspected goalie succumbing to injury 
  7. The Rovers advertising AG in their own media production

And that's just at City. The Scottish national team disintegrated in front of the TV cameras, Montenegro fans were assholes and Sterling biting back after suffering horrendous abuse - AND is still hated by the media for no actual reason. Harry Kane got given a medal for his ball kicking ability and not forgetting, Cardiff are wriggling out of paying Nantes for the player that sadly died. Finally, on a lighter note, Harry Redknapp tried putting Neil Razor Ruddock on a diet and showed Matt Le Tiss still is a bit of magic even after over a decade of not playing pro football.

I don't know about you, but I've genuinely forgotten what Andi Weimann looks like, it's been so long.

 

And I'm sick to the back wisdom teeth (that I have left) with stupid Brexit. So now football is back, everyone can stop playing "Wannabe MP" and concentrate on the tombola and today's opponents, Sheffield United.

Gary Madine is still watching from the stands because he's been a bad boy but Billy Sharp is equally as talented so Kalas and Webby better pin him down today. Max will no doubt be between the sticks for us but their keeper Henderson is on a clean sheet streak. He's not let one goal in since early February so here's hoping Mr Shithouse aka Matty can start to wind him up. A certain young Smith will also likely play - yaaaaaayyyyyy - so Pack and Korey will be reunited.

This is not an easy game. I would take a draw with both hands and feet and the contents of my SkyBet account but if I'm honest, this will probably end up being 0-0 and in classic City style, we'll let Sharp score in the 89th. Argh.

So yep, 1-0 loss I'm predicting.

Hope all the guys and gals and those who identify in between, currently on the M1 northbound, have a great day. Ey up by gum.

 

COYRs!

I'm going to assure a positive result for City by placing a large wager on the Blades. You can thank me by dropping some coins in my hat when you see me on the floor in Broadmead.

Sounds like mostly 40 years of hurt.

You deserve a medal, but the most you'll probably get is our new badge.

The current form table often goes out of the window after an international break, it's always close when we play them and I expect a draw the most likely result

Pretty certain we'll lose today. Bad form for us, Sheffield United are on fire, have immense talent up front and have no fear of any team right now.

Today is going to be the Football Manager “random” code coming into effect.  You know the one, the one where you’re on a great run, but have to do a save because it’s time for your tea.  You reload and all of a sudden that team of unbeatables can’t do a thing right, and they lose a game they shouldn’t.

Basically Chris Wilder’s mum has told him to come down for his tea, and we are gonna be the recipients of tea-time (or the international break as they call it in Mrs Wilder’s house, because she’s made Vista Curry from a tin).

Come on you reds.

Wont be easy, but if “random” is in effect, expect a dull 0-1 with Fam getting the winner.

Very tough game. We’ll do well to come away with a draw. It will be interesting to see if we are able to hit the ground running after the international break - surely tiredness can’t be used as an excuse if we put in one of those lethargic displays.

Good post Peg.

Perhaps for the same reasons as Dave above fancy a City win today. Thinking about how much of roller-coaster this season has been so far 3 points this afternoon doesn't seem implausible.

My very favourite player. Welcome back Korey. 

I’m not sure why his first game after so many months out would be such cause for optimism, but I’m more confident now than I was.

It's 5-3-2

So is this a tactical change to cope with Sheff Utd?

Or LJ wanted to bring Korey in but didn't want to drop Brownhill or Pack? So changes the formation to accommodate all 3?

5-3-2 or 3-5-2 either way I like it. I would be tempted to play this formation for the rest of the season. 
Hopefully more solid in MF , some help for Fam , willing width from DaSilva and Hunt , energy getting forward from MF with Brownhill. 
Reasonable options from the bench, though would have liked to see Semenyo on there.

Interesting line ups, looks like we're going to try and match their 3-5-2 which is a big ask when we've not been playing it and they're very confident playing it. 

I can see today being a thumping, especially with McGoldrick going against Wright, he's going to have a field day. I also think Weimann is a poor choice in that front 2 if he doesn't stay central as he goes missing when he pushes out wide as we don't pick out his runs. 

All in all I think LJ doesn't want us to get over run in the midfield and is aware that is likely if we use the 2 central and 2 wide men set up. 

 

Also after what's been said about Korey fitness this is the wrong game for him to come back, high pressure and high tempo, really not how we should be bringing him back.
