VAR is shit and a waste of time, putting a huge stain on this season.
Sheff Utd are a good side, if you don’t turn up and fight then you’ll be in for a tough day as we found out. Our midfield was non existent, defence pulled here there and everywhere, front three didn’t fancy the battle either first half.
Jones possibly fouled but he shouldn’t be looking/playing for it just get fecking rid. Second goal, Pereira another passenger today giving it away. Weak and sloppy.
Great comeback for us, they ran out of legs and dropped deeper but we punished them, we were patient and probing in each attack and created three well worked goals. The Blades hadn’t conceded in the last 15 minutes all season and we put three past them so credit where it’s due, fantastic for the youngsters too.
We need to do much better at closing games out, they shouldn’t be getting passes into our box so easily that said it’s handball and shouldn’t have stood.
Never should be drawing to Sheffield United. The pressure has to be on now, especially with Pochettino free (even though i feel really bad for Ole since he's in a similar position as Poch, but Ole has an even crappier squad to work with).
Last time I checked Sheff United were above us in the table and flying, surprising just about everyone. The only people who looked surprised yesterday by it were our players for most of the game.
It's not worth repeating that we have too many squad players filling first team eleven boots. But long and short of it is that midfield needs sorting ASAP. Until that's done no manager is doing anything with this team, in this league, over a season.
Rollercoaster of a match in the end, enjoyable for the neutral and all that. They deserved something out of it but we were woeful for the most part.
Obvious shoutout to Brandon Williams who obviously gets it, and Mason.
