i'm on this website every day, and i read through everyone's views and ive finally decided to voice myself and my disgust at 2nite's result, how the **** they've won that i never know. We completely outplayed them, got the ball on the floor and played some very good football at times; outlined by 2 terrific goals. Sheffield United play the numbers game, punt it into their goal and hope it bobbles in, and if their fans appreciate that then god help them. I'm proud of 2nites comeback and i honestly think we can push on this season and reach the playoffs. Watched the game at champs and alot of the pigs agreed that we played the better football, and where unlucky to be 3-0 down. Purse and Buxton out, Hinds and Simek in, if simek isnt fit, i'll come and play for free and do a better job than that moron!

reyght game, even though we lost, if we passed it along the deck in the first half instead of playing into they're game of rugger we'd have won. Still well proud of the second half deserved a point could have sneaked a win even. Agree with spaced on Buxton and Purse out Buxton looks accident prone at the back all the time and goes walkabout, Purse doesnt seem to be on same wavelength as rest of defence. I'd put EEE on LW, JJ on RW(where was he tonight?) and put Gray at RB, Hinds CB

No cutting edge, no defensive cohesion. Last seasons finest defence has been ruined by the arrival of Purse, Buxton has lost all confidence, why isn't Sodje getting more games, why isn't Esajas played more often, why is Laws obsessed by experience (Jeffers, Purse, and Miller) prefering these timeservers taking their high wages for little effort to better players who will shed blood for the club (Beevers, Hinds, Esajas)? Yes we played well in the second half but lets stop kidding ourselves, thats 1 point out of 9 and we were lucky to get that. BL needs to look at himself and his team and remind everybody that winning games is what they're there for and this needs to be done soon before we face another season of sliding toward relegation. Admit it when you've got it wrong BL, have the courage to change things and move on. C'mon Wednesday!

Purse again was shocking,he looks lost.we ad them camped in their own half upto them scoring and again back post unmarked simple finish.But wot a come back Esajas made a massive difference wen he came on they cudnt handle his pace n skill.Thought we deserved a point @ least and i think Laws needs to look @ purse n hold his hands up n say he made a mistake with playing him.This was best derby game ive witnessed in years and wasnt one sided for a change,piggys @ last put up a fight but wud say a few of them lucky to be on pitch.Bring on the rematch leeeeeeeeeeeets getttttttttttttttt readyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy 22222222222222222222222222 ruuuuuuuuuuumble.

i agree with bradford owl. Fair enough they won but I dont hear them shouting about it after that second half because they were genuinely scared that we were going to get a deserved point. The only reason purse was on the pitch was because he is the captain. anyone else would have been dropped with the performances he has provided us. Buxton was shocking against forrest, didnt see the boro game so cant comment but he was awful last night. It seems like we have turned our awesome home defence of last season into our terrible away defense. the only comment i would make would be to start JJ and EE on either wing to start with because we need pace on the wings and Gray just didnt provide it.

What were we doing in that first half at the back? Great second half and we deserved at least a point. I'm not attacking Buxton but he'd have been better off letting Henderson have a free header cos he'd never finished it as well as Lewis did! Poor old Blades, they just can not and have not played football in my lifetime. You sometimes walk out of Hillsborough after we've played someone of the park but I know for a fact the Utd have never done this, they sometimes batter teams into oblivion but never outplay anyone. I know what I'd rather see
