We have to get the Spurs match out of our heads and start to fight like hell

Disgraceful display. Unfortunately Farke hasn't proved once this season that he is capable of rousing the players at half time. Duda one of the worst signings in NCFC history. Although i'm sure Hogey will be along later tell us that some nonsense 'statistical data' that he is in fact one of the best players 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? 

I think it would require that our defenders can mark their man, so unfortunately not possible..

This is why I can't see the point in playing Tettey and Mclean at CDM. We try to be defensive and solid, but still get bullied and dominated.

Get Vrancic on to ping some accurate balls from deep. Push Kenny up to support Pukki and hold the ball up. Get Cantwell off for Rupp.

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

Totally agree and I've been saying this for a while.

We haven't got anyone who would look like scoring from a corner though even if the cross was spot on. As good as we think Teemu is, Billy Sharp showed what a striker needs to do.

... and we are meant to be playing for our Premier League lives!  That's a laugh - "bravo win or die", more like roll over and capitulate.  Very disappointing performance.

Their tactic of getting as many crosses in as possible is working. We haven't been able to defend them all season. 

Not sure what Farke can do to change things at HT.

Only one team on the pitch who look like they want to win it and it's not us.

We have shown almost zero attacking intent, Pukki is own his own and is out numbered.

As usual too much tippy tappy and giving the ball away.

Meanwhile at the other end, they just get the ball in the box and they have players (i.e. more than one) looking for it.

We do not look a team that needs to win this.

Get Idah on and give them some of their own medicine

And lets give Sheffield United some credit, they aren't just bully boys, they have played as much football as we have, they have just played it better and quicker.

For all his ability Mario defends like a piece of wet lettuce. 

We've got to win the ball first before he can deploy his skills. He is not the man to do that.

We've got our two strongest DMs playing & we're still getting overrun. Mario wouldn't stop that.

You wonder whether the FA Cup has drained some energy

Sheff Utd went to extra time too. It's nothing to do with that, the players out at the moment cannot deal with press, intensity, and directness. 

Cantwell is the biggest example. Really nice on the ball when the opposition gives him time, but when pressed he's like bambi on ice with the ball. He isn't quick enough in very tight situations. Neither is Tettey or Mclean. Buendia is, but is completely disconnected. As for Duda.. I don't know what to say.

The minimal times we have attacked, there has barely been any support for Pukki, why the hell is a talented player like buendia defending!

History suggests he isn't capable as we've lost every game in which we've falling behind. A damning statistic on Farke.

No but he'd offer a threat in possession which may just result in getting the ball forward quicker! You'll also find that the opposition tend to give better ball players more space, for fear of the ball being knocked past them on the press. 

Playing defensive isn't working at all. So try something else, which for us is possession based attacking. We have the players for that.

Good call. It'd be a baptism of fire though.

Duda in the team. Gonna be a struggle going up against Sheff Utd with 10 men. 

A worthy bump if i do say so myself.

Sheff Utd have no frills, just playing the game in a simple fashion. Moving the ball quickly with pace and putting it in to the box at the first opportunity. We are playing typical "early Farke" stuff. Ineffective slow possession football in our own half, going back most of the time. When we do get anywhere near their goal our only mode of attack is to try to wriggle through a throng of defenders with short passes which does not look like producing anything. Considering the pressure have defended quite well. Desperately need someone in midfield to produce some space. Vrancic would not be up to pace and Duda may as well not be there.

They don't give a monkey's about all that. They'd just kick him off the park.
