We get outplayed every game though. Can’t keep saying ‘on to the next one’. 

Everyone seems to have forgotten the 4 points against Stoke and Blackburn. My biggest gripe is that it should’ve been 6 points save a ridiculous individual error by Kalas.

If we ‘progressed’ every game would we not end up winning the league?

It’s a fair point you make about progressing every game, it’s disappointing though that we weren’t able to maintain anywhere near the level of performance or intensity that we showed against a superior Stoke side on Wednesday. 
 

The thing I enjoyed most against Stoke was the commitment, effort, work-rate and performances of Scott and Benarous (and the 3 points!).
 

Today we were limp and passive. I don’t mind losing to a better side when we give our all but today we were so submissive, getting the basic fundamentals of football wrong.

Of course it’s disappointing mate, completely agree with  that, who in their right mind wants the club to get itself into such a financial pickle that it’s staring down the barrel of consecutive 50m loss seasons. That’s including the 12m saved over the summer!

Its no fun watching shit city teams, we’ve all seen them.

Ultimately I believe we have enough about us to stay up (as the last 3 home games showed) after that, who knows. As @Davefevs rightly points out, we are likely to breach FFP and who knows what happens then.

This ‘bed wetting’ thing is like the toddlers retort of ‘you smell’.  I imagine that you have progressed in literacy beyond pre-school, especially with a username of ‘bard’, unless of course that is ironic?  

That was another disappointing performance, whatever way you look at it. I didn’t see the whole game, so I might be accused of not having the right to comment, but for the 55 mins I did see, we didn’t look competitive today.   Such a shame after 3 half decent performances and the opportunity to build a bit of momentum and confidence.

It is worrying that we are so reliant on two key midfield players - one of whom seems to be unable to play more than two successive games.  Without either James or Williams, we sGroweem to lose all ability to play in any kind of coherent way.   Massengo and Bakinson haven’t worked out to play together as yet and seem to make each other look like average players when they’re on the same pitch. Worse than that though is the bigger impact  on the team’s ability to do the basics.  
 

On a positive note, my kids’team had a good win today - I think I might have seen better football watching them play. 
 

Now, where were those clean sheets…


 
 

FFS.  My point was that we are not realistically in a position to expect to win at Sheff U.  It wasn't a good performance obviously but the overreaction on this forum after every defeat is ludicrous and frankly embarrassing.  There's nothing wrong with being critical but large numbers of people have no perspective.  

Do you actually think I consider myself to be some kind of literary giant?  Of course I don't.  I'm on a flipping football forum same as you.

If I could bet on Baker spending more time in the treatment room than the pitch throughout any season.....I would be a rich man?   Seriously what is the point of Baker?  If he hardly ever plays?

Very poor post and utterly clueless - Bakes played in every game bar two this season up until his serious injury at WBA - and one of those he was on the bench. Then three matches later after he’d recovered he was straight back into the team and stayed there - today’s injury was another serious one - you obviously don’t know how long he was given treatment on the pitch - so you thought you’d post a lazy, ill informed and presumptuous load of guff

I remember Owls fans stranded in the ground at HT during a Blizzard at AG years ago

I remember that - December 1990 - Ron Atkinson was their manager and for us it was Martin Scott’s debut - I clearly recall the hushed silence that fell over the Owls’ usual superb away following when it was announced over the tannoy that the M32, M4, M5 and M1 were all shut due to the weather - and City fans just laughing at the announcement wouldn’t have helped their mood - the Sheffield Wednesday squad had to check into a Bristol hotel that night as they couldn’t get home and a fair few Owls’ fans headed straight to Weston super Mare to seek solace at being marooned in the West Country 😳🍷

Childish and pathetic as always - I’ve only just logged in so forgive me for not devoting hours catching up on loads of posts featuring other posters picking you up on the guff you posted - I read your initial post and decided to reply - that’s the function of a forum - it certainly doesn’t warrant your response ... no worries, I’m off to converse with adults now ...

HNM , AB and TB vs Norwood , Hourihane and Gibbs White .

Now in a few years our three might well be something , but today you cannot compare .

From my Sheff Utd supporting mate:

"I will say I expected better, your marking was poor & you gave us the time space that we needed. Also, what was with the "dark arts" wasn't it 4 players booked for knocking the ball away?"

I agree they were stupid bookings. After Bentley was booked Callum and Martin should be old and wise enough not to do exactly the same thing. The three of them put themselves needlessly on a booking and with this Ref they could have been heading for the dressing room. Small margins of error, didn’t cost us the game but why give the opposition a helping hand.

I think some people are letting themselves get too enraged. I know I foolishly anticipated that we would steal a draw, but hey, Wells only had to square the ball and we had a different game.

We were outplayed by a better squad of players. We quite clearly were going to struggle without any fit senior midfielders and it was very brave for us to give players like Scott and Benarous the opportunity. But it might pay off in the long run as they learn more lessons.

The weather was atrocious, the referee was appalling and our players weren't at their best. But let's not get too upset. These games will happen. If we reach 25+ points before Christmas then we are well on track to avoid a dogfight.

I am totally in the same camp as you BUT I do understand people who look at the performances of our players sometimes, like Bakinson's atrocious "effort" yesterday, only days after getting a contract extension, and think "what a bunch of obnoxious, carefree, selfish, largely uncommitted and just simply dislikeable shithouses many of them are". You've got the likes of Baker on one hand who probably gives too much to get a result to the detriment of his own future health and then you look further up the pitch and up pops our "marquee Centre Forward signing" - a stupidly overpaid, absolute stinking shithouse who couldn't even put the team first and execute the most simple of passes yesterday when it counted. I really am hoping that Nige sorts the scumbags in our squad out and there are still way too many of them for my liking but if he is doing that there are very few obvious signs and it seems to be a very slow process. January will literally define our medium term future imo.
