Sheffield United away match day thread

Bristol City faced Sheffield United in the other semi-final and Bristol City progressed to the final while Sheffield United were relegated to the Third Division.

 

That Final; May 25th. 1988, a packed Ashton Gate saw Walsall win 3-1, but three days later, City won the return two nil! In the dying moments a shot for a winning third goal passed inches wide of the Walsall post. A penalty shoot out was now held to determine the venue for a third deciding game. Once again City proved inept with spot kicks and had to return to Walsall on May 30th. In a one sided encounter, Walsall, in their centenary season won 4-0 and with it promotion to division two.

The following season Walsall were relegated straight back down whereas Sheff U did the double over City and went straight back up.

Would definitely take a point today. 

Derby and Hull mentioned as lower placed teams but I don't think those games will be easy either. Hull are on a bit of a run and Derby have a few good players. 

Maybe a bit unlucky, but certainly will be facing them both when they are in pretty good form. Hull now on a good run and Derby just taken 4 points off the top two. No easy games…

Good Day all!   A good start would be great , as we usually take so long to settle down and let teams come on to us from the KO.  If we press them like we did against Stoke from the beginning this time, then I think we will have a good chance of at least getting a point or even three.  So all of you up there, hope you get a good result. Come On You Red's!!!!!!

As expected, Massengo for Williams

That midfield. It's done well but the youth is mad. COD is the old head at 25, iirc Bakinson is 21, Massengo 20, Scott and Benarous are 18 and 17 respectively. I might have a year wrong here or there. They're doing well, but I'd love James' experience back in there soon.

Up against Bogle, Norwood, Hourihane etc. That's some real experience v real youth today.

I would take a draw right now such is our plight and especially after the results yesterday. Another game closer to the transfer window where NP can offload those who don't want to be on the bus and get better reinforcements who do.

Quite odd results yesterday, every team in the bottom half except Luton picked up points.

A win today (big ask) and we are right in mid table, remarkable considering how poor we've been in the most part.

Yeah didn't we expect James to be back by now?

Was just about to post similar. Nothing in the team is a surprise, but seeing it like that in black and white…blimey. Tough one for them today.

Good to see Semenyo on the bench. Hopefully he’ll get a cameo today.

He’s been on the bench for the last 3 games, he actually came on v Blackburn!

Ages:

Bentley 28

Vyner 24, Kalas 28, Baker 30

Scott 18, Massengo 20, Bakinson 23, Benarous 18, O’Dowda 26

Martin 33, Weimann 30

Total 278 / 11, 25.27.

Our centre midfield of Massengo, Benarous, and Bakinson has an average age of about 20. I have faith in them, but we have to acknowledge that is VERY young for a championship midfield trio. No real CMs on the bench either.

The legs of Benarous and Massengo versus Norwood and the slowing-Hourihane might be something to watch today.
