Obviously a must win game for us to keep our tiny little glimmer alive although imo winning all 3 games still won't be enough. Huge game for barnsley as Gillingham should win tommorrow so with gd it would be a big ask for them to catch the gills if we beat them tommorrow. Barnsley sold just over 3k apparently that's well below par in my opinion too. 25k expected which is remarkable once again considering the shit were served up year after year.

Shame about the early kick off means a trip to boozer at 9am now , they never end well. Hoping we can perform like we did in our last 2 home games that should give us a good chance. Obviously you seem to be playing well so gonna be a tough task I'll predict a 1-1 draw.

Yes but last season was early doors and didn't mean no where near as much. Fuck me even Rotherham brought 5k last time they were here similar time similar position.

It's like 50% of our average home attendance.

Don't give me that shit if you can muster 25k for a jpt final but not muster 4k for a trip 30 mins tops away in your biggest game of the season league wise and Derby wise.(ours too). It's a shit following

I can't get frustrated about it tbh, our closest game I think, but 3.6k is still a sizeable following for any level of the English game and one of our biggest of the season and my previous point isn't irrelevant I don't reckon.

You should let us win really, I mean you don't want fucking Rochdale sneaking in the playoffs, surely?

I'd rather Gillingham go up tbh so I don't have to go as fucking far to watch us

To be fair Rotherham is essentially already in Sheffield though.

I don't think 3694 for a 12:30 kick off is poor, it could be better but considering you only brought a couple of hundred more to us and you get double our home gates it's not bad really.

Really looking forward to tomorrow, glad the Blades have won their last few in a way as it's put them in with a shout of the play offs and makes it a huge game for both sides rather than just for us. We've not been great recently so I'm not getting my hopes up but we do keep grinding out points. Hope it's a good game and the best team wins, which with any luck will be us.

Poor game of football no real urgency from either side. We're finished if gills win today I think Barnsley are too. They'd require gills to lose both realistically

God know. That famous Blades / Dale rivalry won't allow it.

What an odd point.

Enjoyed yesterday up to a point, both teams and sets of fans put the effort in but the quality in the final third was non-existent. Chances were at a premium and a point was probably fair. Looks a good one for us too given Gillingham messed up. Looks grim for the Blades now but you never know.
