Sheffield United’s mauling at the hands of Birmingham and the late drama which tied Sheffield Wednesday’s game at Blackpool provided lots to talk about for legions of internet junkies.
The Dukeries Owl wrote on the star.co.uk: “It can’t be too long before Kevin “Score against Wednesday in injury time every time I play against them” Phillips retires, surely?...I hate that man with a passion!
Handsworth added: “Why oh why do we give away a win in the last minutes I dare not count the number of times Wednesday have done it this Season We now have a replay we can do well without and no guarantee how it will end For goodness sake hauling a player down with seconds to go Unbelievable
While Wednesday Boy was optimistic: “I can’t wait for the replay at Hillsborough, it will be jam packed, unlucky not to go through on 1st attempt, Blackpools defence diabolical, saw the results in the first division, good news that Huddersfield only drew, definitley need the win against MK Dons on Tuesday, good result in the cup for Crawley and Stevanage.
On the red side of the city, awreetthen posted on our website: Sobering to think there are better teams than Brum waiting in the Championship -lots of work still to be done at the Lane.
The team effort has been good but they are not an effective unit. Can this United team really clinch second spot?
Charlton could be 13 points clear of us before our next game and we still have three away games against our current closest rivals.
United need us more than ever this year.
And Hawking admitted: We weren’t at the races today. B’ham are not 4 goals better but the difference was that they scored from every clear sight of goal. We should have put their goalkeeper under much more pressure because he was poor, couldn’t hold on to a ball to save his life.”
Silverblade was philosophical. “Played well but got stuffed, the league now is the priority.”
Over at Doncaster dblido was supportive of Rovers owner John Ryan. “I can’t think of another chairman in the country who has tried harder for their club, or supporters. If Donny had picked up just another four or five points from the last few games then the new controversial loans policy would be hailed as the best thing since sliced bread, clubs with limited funds and massive injury problems would be queuing up to get a slice.”
