Reaction From The Blades End

Reaction From The Blades End

Last night's Steel City derby was dubbed 'Payback Tuesday' by the tannoy announcer at Bramall Lane, but the Blades failed to get revenge, and boss Kevin Blackwell was left frustrated.

Many Blades fans were predicting a comfortable victory and a huge improvement on their no-show in the Owls' 2-0 victory at Hillsborough back in January, but the hosts ended up lucky to get a point.

And although Blackwell admitted the clash must have been a great spectacle for the neutral, he insists it was two points dropped rather than a point gained.

'That was a great game which must have been fabulous for the neutrals, if there were any, and the only losers were those who didn't see it,' he told the official Blades website.

'I feel it was two points tossed away because we dominated so much of the game and created so many chances. Their goalkeeper Lee Grant made some terrific saves, and looking back so did Paddy on a couple of occasions.

'But the lads showed terrific courage and determination to come back as they did. At Hillsborough they were two down and got battered, but tonight we were in the same position and got back in it - that's the improvement we have made.'

The match last night was a throwback to the 70s fighting in the stands ,being spat on by the home fans above,overflowing toilets,poor policing and stewarding, no segregation before and after the game and idiots waiting on every corner waiting to cause trouble afterwards. As for the game it was a real derby match three wingers roasting the fullbacks,two keepers pulling off brilliant saves,veteran players showing they can still do it,youngsters stepping up to the mark in a cauldron of a game. Loads of missed chances and a class freekick to get a draw in the dying minutes.

I've seen plenty of full houses at Hillsborough pigforlife, remember the derby a few years ago at our place, with not 1 empty seat? That was before we introduced that stupid '3 game package' deal. Or I suppose you were only about 2 years old back then
