The return of Nigel Clough gives a bit of extra spice to this game. Blades and Brewers fans have polar opposite views on the man. I expect him to receive a very hostile welcome.
On to the match itself, I am not sure what to expect, The Blades have surprised me with their inconsistency and the Albion have surprised me with theirs.
If Duffy and Beavon are fit I think we could get the 3 points if not then a draw would be the best we could hope for. We need something from the game in all honesty with the tough run of away games we have.
Can't go tonight but wish all travelling Albion fans and Blades a safe journey to and fro.

Can safely say iv never felt as depressed about the thought of going to watch us in a game as i do tonight. Clough wont get a hostile reception unless he starts acting a twat, as much as some didnt like him he never once got turned on by the fans and im pretty sure he will recognise that. If he feels hard done by its from the board certainly not the fans. On to the game itself its basically impossible to predict with us so im not going to make one but what i do know is if it aint going well then the board and the players will know about it big time which i agree with giving it the players but not the board. They gave clough a lot of money to work with and backed him with whoever he wanted and that has backfired big time. Our lowest crowd of the season too id of thought as well tonight.

Listening on the radio the Blades sounded woeful and the fans didn't sound happy.
3 good points for us especially looking at tonight's other results.

It's ours to lose now. Couldn't make it tonight due to work. Wish I had found a way to leave early.
Great 3 points. Really thought we would lose

Didn't even bother listening and genuinely more gutted about the Leicester result such is my apathy for the shower of proverbial this season has become.

Great results for Burton tonight, good luck in the Championship.

Once I saw the line up I fancied us to nick the points, Its beginning to look like the impossible is possible !

Despite the shite form the blades are hardly out of the play off race. Just need a 1-0 ugly win to stop the rot and arrest the slide

Too many players taking home rediculous wages not interested whatsoever in the clubs fortunes. A manager who is trying all sorts of silly ideas without any real plan behind them. Think im coming to watch you lot on saturday now if me pal gets us a couple of freebies.

And this is the thing that makes our collective piss boil. The budget will be top 2, so these "players" are being handsomely paid. And in return they offer very little, seem content to go through the motions before they continue their descent down the leagues.

Of the bunch we have right now, I'd only think that Long, Brayford and Adams would stand any chance of playing Championship football in the future. By and large, the rest of them are no hopers and it really shows at present. Under the circumstances, our fans have been incredibly tolerant, perhaps too much so. Although in truth, it is more resignation that this season is another disaster, even worse than the last few.

This is why I find it a bit off to criticise the board for not spending money, the funds are there. We are backing managers (with Imo the exception of Adkins because hes been loaded with an expensive squad from Clough), we just seem to have a habit of backing the wrong managers at the wrong times. Am still in the camp of giving Adkins the summer to bring in his own squad, but that's purely based off his past record as I haven't enough to comment on us this season.

Exactly. People slagging the board are just clueless.

George long is wank i dont think hes got a prayer of ever playing championship football. John brayford has turned into an absolutely horrific player, have a look at the goals weve conceded in 2016 so far and you will be stunned how many come down his side and are defensive lapses from him, but hes got a beard so our fans dont mind about him(retards). Mceveley is a far better fb at the minute. And onto che adams the man who decides game by game wether he can be arsed to even try or not, last night he didnt give a fuck and although he probably does have the potential to step up the fact hes that thick will probably hold him back.
