im going to swallow my pride and say congratulations on your cracking start to the season and the result at the valley today. alot had you for an easy relegation but you are pulling results out of the bag left right and centre. credit has to g to laws who is well up against it financially. the injury sitiuation is also difficult but laws is geberating a togetherness at the sty and in all fairness you could be in for a very surprising season. credit where credit is due. i take my hat of and say well done. jesus that was hard but i carnt fault you this season apart from the reading game. us on the other had expect promotion but looking like a playoff place at best inless we can get some quality midfield players in. apparantly brian howard is coming in on monday morning so thats a start. now how many of you lot could do and say what ive just said about the city divide rivals?? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

couldnt say that without a dig at the end to make yourself sound better, youre right though i couldnt say that about united mainly because it would be lies, youve underperformed so far playing ugly defensive football, and lastly not a lot had us for easy relegation we were mid table in every bookmakers odds just pre season wishful thinking from blades ''we're gonna win league and owls are going down''
wesp
I'll be honest, I haven't got a scooby what's going to happen next. According to the radio we robbed Charlton but you've got to take the good with the bad. Can't wait for tuesday, c'mon Wednesday!
robc
Give BFL so credit for coming on and saying what he has. He is right it is a lot better than this time last season. All BL has to do now is get some consistency going in the team, but a major worry I have is with our defence. At times today it was very shakey and had there been any problems BL wouldnt have been able to do anything about it because we didnt have any defenders on the bench.
Skeggy Owl
well said BFL apart from the kisses. xxxxxxxxxxx haha
benowl
thanks skegg and ben its appreciated lads!!! like i say as blades we can look at you lot to see you dont need millons to be effective in this league. it might not last all season with you lot but laws sure knows how to grind out results. NW did just the same at the lane. seriouslly good win today and as it stands at the moment laws will have no problems raising the players for the visit of the blades. my only concern is can blackwell generate what laws seems to do brilliantly?? we will have to wait and see. we have quality in abundance but we just carnt seem to generate it consistantly. laws is the best manager you lot have had since francis and to be fair i would rate him higher than francis had absolute millions at his disposal. i hope you lot realise how god he is and he would be fantastic if he had millions to spend!!
bladesforlife1889
it is good to comment and get good responses back cheers lads
bladesforlife1889
nice comments there BFL, the world's a better place when you've taken your medicine. lol
Norman
sarcasm at it best there norman mate - the 3 points medicine always helps - lol

i was at charlton yesterday and i have to say that wednesday were rubbish apart from the 2 individual bits of brilliance from tudgay and small + the performance of watson..the defending was shocking and lady luck was on our side today big time..apart from the 2 goals we offered nothing going forward at all!..we need beevers back in the heart of our defence and tommy spurr back at full back..gilbert is shocking and simply not good enough..i also dont understand why bl didnt use jeffers at all yeterday..if hes fit which he is now then he should be playing..watson was again superb and was my man of the match up until he went off injured hope he is fit for tuesday..still a great 3 points at the end of the day lets hope we can keep progressing on tuesday.
WORKSOP..OWL
I dint go worksop but on radio sheff they said we were lucky but we defended brilliantly?? You're right about gilbert, he's not a championship player. I think we can definately win three of our next four games, which would put us in a healthy position obviously. Hopefully there should be a good attendance on tuesday night. Forest will bring 2-3 thousand
benowl
he didnt use jeffers because of two forced subs from injury, jj came off probably too early for jeffers, smalls first game back obviously needed to come off in like for like for EE, was probably planning jeffers 20 mins but watson got injured,
wesp
wesp..i am not talking about why he didnt bring jeffers on as a sub..i dont understand why if he is now fit which he obviousley is why he doesnt start him??..we need him in the team now from the start as we do beevers!
WORKSOP..OWL
wouldnt have started jeffers not with 4-5-1 but get what your saying i'd start him on tues with tudgay, burtons looked a bit off
wesp
Laws is an absolute legend! Yo'ure right BFL, he's got that x-factor thing that some managers have and others don't. If he can do what he's doing on the budget and injury list we have, imagine whet he could do with money! Sounds like we jammed it big time on Sat but how nice that we're having that bit of luck this season, we just don't get luck like that normally do we! Up the fricking Owls!
SuperOwls
Went for a 2-2 draw thinking it would be a good point but to get all three was fantastic. Can we carry on with the wins now?
will it ever happen
ill be honnest i carnt see you losing at the moment the way you are playing. not exactlly great but stubbon and planned
bladesforlife1889
It would be nice if we could keep a clean sheet for once!!
will it ever happen
