So the return of Michael Brown and Rob Page. Going away tomorrow so will miss tomorrows game, thankfully.

Will be interesting to see those two's reception, especially as the fans got criticised by Clough for cheering Michael Brown earlier on this season. Also our 125th birthday celebration...could've sworn we celebrated the 125 this time last year Vs Wolves tbh. We've decided to wear a new strip in celebration of this tomorrow.

Cloughs pre-match interview, fast forward to 45seconds. Very odd comments and sounds like he knows hes going

2-1 win is my guess

1-1

Referee has been the Blunts best player, whatever the penalty was for is anyone's guess. What the booking on Brown for a hard but clean tackle was for. When will we ever get a decent one. Shit game otherwise, Sheffield are just hoofing aimlessly and we're playing some good stuff but no end product.

Frustrating to lose that against a fairly poor Sheffield United side on the day not helped by some farcical refereeing. Laughable penalty decision decided the outcome, sent Brown off yet the first yellow wasn't even a foul, failed to make a standard decision when the keeper handles the ball about three yards outside his box and despite sending Brown off failed to give their lad a second yellow for a similar foul! As for Veseli getting booked because their lad wouldn't retreat for us to take a free kick... Summed up the mans performance today.

We dominated long spells of the second half but the final ball let us down as it's now looking nervously like a relegation battle until the end of the season.

As for the atmosphere today, 18,000 fans yet absolutely no noise whatsoever?! Been five times now and usually a good atmosphere but 39 Crawley fans made more noise on Tuesday!

Theres no atmosphere at any ground mate is there. Not much in it today agree that browns 1st yellow was a good tackle not sure about the pen. Didnt think you threatened at all against a very poor side (us). Just a typical shit game again

Don't worry you'll be back to thrashing teams next week when our inept fuckers stroll ever so carelessly into town.

Well what a farce that was,the ref was awful. He gave fouls and cards for nothing. Utd never looked like they would score in open play but ether did Vale,It was a dubious penalty, very harsh. We deserved a draw , don't know how Utd are are where they are. They have looked dire today and at Vale Park. Clough is a right nob, all he did is badger the officials for most of the game, his dad would be rolling in his grave.

Thought it deserved to be 0-0. First 15 mins i feared the worst but all in all an even game, what i will say despite having a lot of the ball for an away side how many saves did Howard actually make, one maybe which looked spectacular but was routine really, Worst Sheffield team i have seen on all my visits, whether it is a confidence thing i don,t know. Funniest moment was when the cheese ball of a stadium announcer gave the disallowed scorers name and bellowed out ' What a game ', pity linesman had is flag up for about 30 seconds !! What a penis. Nothing more needs be said about the ref apart from fact the red card can,t be rescinded but not one Sheff Utd fan appealed for a foul on Browns first challenge it was simply a great tackle, and Howards slide 6 foot outside the box was more the linesman shitting it at a big club. Season over for us and i,ll be as bold to say see you next season Sheffield as you are way behind Swindon and MK Dons as the table would suggest.

Have a feeling Sheff United will win the play offs but would be a travesty. The amount of long ball and times they just hoofed it out of play, were better at VP with ten men than yesterday.
New kit was weird (bit early to reveal it surely)! Looked ok but not very much like a Sheff United kit being white with very thin pinstripes.

Got to be a confidence thing, they were a poor outfit considering 5th in the league, some of their passing was awful. Felt all we had to do was nick one and there would of been a deluge of boos and abuse, they were clearly desperate for the win. And what is up with Clough ? what a knob he tried reffing the game himself ,as for us we are where we are, season petered out to nothing. Possibly the worst League one quality wise for years bar the top 4. If Barnsley or Donny make play offs then it says it all.

It is dreadful and that's why the top four are flying away with it. A missed opportunity for a lot of clubs as you only have to be even slightly able to get a play off spot.

He is a nob, he was in Pages standing area half the time. I'd hate having that muppet as a manager. After seeing the peno on tv i have to be honest it looks like one. But the linesman and ref bottled it with the keeper handling the ball out the area, if that had been Neal he would have been off.

Seeing the pen on the football league show we can't have any complaints. I was sat 3 rows from the back of the stand and although you needed oxygen to climb that high the view of the pitch was brilliant, just a shame the game on it was so terrible.

Yeah on viewing probably a penalty, couldn't see it from behind in the Ennis stand, so the referee got one right! The keeper handling outside the area was strange as it was not borderline and right in front of the linesman! We had an identical incident against Doncaster and didn't get that either.
