the amount of times we've played sheff utd now you'd think Farke would have learnt how to set up against them. 

Doesn't that work both ways?

They are up for it.  We are not!  They first to the 50/50 and when we do have the ball we are being bullied off it in the middle of the park.

Need to make it to half time without conceding another. Getting mugged at the minute

Agree. They smell blood. We need HT and a new plan.

We don't have anyone who can put in a cross or a corner like they do and they've got half a dozen players who can do it consistantly

Spineless performance so far, really disappointed with them, just playing into their hands and don't seem to be able to keep hold of it for more than 2 seconds. Just shows the gulf in class between two promoted sides 😞

You wonder whether the FA Cup has drained some energy

Absolute no show. Needs changes at half time, we won’t be in this match much longer as it is

We have to up our physicality against these. Its no good playing neat stuff but bottling it when the muck starts flying. Whatever we say, Fleck is on the pitch and hasn't been booked. Poor old Todd certainly doesn't look ready to challenge for 50-50s. And after a good start, Duda is anonymous.

Is Duda on the pitch?

Sad to think that all Sheff Utd have to do is pump the ball long onto our box to cause absolute havoc. Can we not just for once go man for man marking on set pieces?

This certainly isn’t anywhere near the performance level of the last two games, but Sheff U are a real ‘in your faces’ side and have proved themselves hard to play against for even the best sides.

Be a refreshing change wouldn't it?

And don't call me Dad.

We have always lacked the physicality required in this league.

Our midfield is so powder puff it’s embarrassing. Men against boys.

We look as lifeless as those godawful grey shirts. Outplayed, outmuscled and being overpowered.

I know we play a different game but we seem to want FOREVER on the ball. Nothing direct or quick coming from us at all.

Out fought and out classed. Lucky to be only one down.

We looked competitive for the first 25 then faded badly

This is a disgrace. Why is it that every time they get the ball, they are either totally in space or at worst have a 1 vs 1 with our player. Everytime we have the ball, we've got 1 vs 3. I really can't work out why, is it the system they play? Is it more desire? Is it just dreadful tracking / positioning of ours? All of the above? I don't understand.

Utterly rubbish defending - why was Godfrey so deep, two players miles offside if he was keeping the line with Hanley.

Not marking anyone either

We need to up our intensity. We are 1-0 down and playing like we are 1 up. They were no better than us until the goal but since then they are steamrolling our midfield. Buendia and Kenny are trying but the rest are nowhere I'm afraid.

Come of DF, We love you but you really need to give them a bit of the old cold steel rather than a nice chat at half time.
