The Bramall Lane tannoy announcer dubbed last night's Steel City derby 'Payback Tuesday' - some payback that was eh?
Of course, he was referring to the Owls' comfortable 2-0 victory over their red and white rivals back in January, but a double strike from Adam Bolder thwarted any such 'payback' during an exciting Sheffield derby.
The Vital Sheffield Wednesday, and Vital Sheffield United comments pages and forums were full of Blades fans predicting a 'thrashing for the Owls ahead of the match, Blades fans who've been pretty quiet this morning.

sharpblades said: '2-0 Blades. Beattie to score both goals and send the porkers back to the sty and league one football next season. Come on you red and white wizards.'
jonnyblade said: 'Stop crying about injuries and making excuses for the impending battering you're gonna get. The simple fact is, there's not a single wednesday player that'd make it into the united team.'

I must have missed us being 'utterly slaughtered and humiliated at the Lane' last night, or the 'impending battering' we got, surely I must have been at a different match?
Still, don't forget the Blades have that 'one over' on us not doing the double over them. Forget humiliating them at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals, forget the Boxing Day Massacre.
'Sending Wednesday down' was the match preview on the Vital Sheffield United website - well, lads, that's a point that takes us a place higher in the pecking order, a point further away from the bottom three, and makes that four points from six off your lot this season, four points that could well help us survive this season. You were going to hammer us afterall, so surely that's four points gained rather than two dropped, right?
You'll never beat the Wednesday....
