    Rumours that Swansea and Steve Cooper

    On a 6 month sabbatical as his wages are still being paid by the Club I suspect, this being his severance. if the legal team at SUFC have got the terms right CW will forfeit any remaining severance if he gets new employment before the end of the 6 month term. Apart from his tainted record in...

    Transfer Targets 2021/22 Season

    Thats how it used to be for sell on clauses SRE. Nowadays clubs can negotiate either a percentage of the profit or of the full transfer fee as the attached article alludes to. Depends what is said in the transfer contract clauses between the Clubs. So we are at risk of paying Arsenal £4.5 mill...

    The Blades ( Finishing position this season )

    8th without 2 new centre backs coming in. 6th if we have them and a chance in the play offs. I expect a period of transition - that favourite word of the previous owner. SJ has changed the Sports Science side which is a big plus but its the same people doing the recruitment and negotiating ins...

    Transfer Targets 2021/22 Season

    I'd love Grujic but they value him at £25 mill and he looks to be heading to Porto. Celtic are after Davies, £60k a week wages. We may have to go for loans as part of any sale. Ojo previously played for Slav at Fulham, Wilson had a good spell at Derby but has flattered to deceive since. Nat...

    Door Deals to ruin another kit

    Well it at least explains the rubbish Reeves the Commercial Manager was coming out with about it not being possible to put full stripes on the back of shirts. What he really meant was that we have to leave room for a very large sponsor name on the back. At least it isn't the garish green and...

    Euro 2020 thread

    Better team won but why Grealish wasn't a designated penalty taker is a mystery. Only 20 minutes for Grealish tells its own story. Back to normal football now UTB.

    Euro 2020 thread

    Unfortunately Gray I'm on strong painkillers due to a neck injury so its non alcoholic for me. Maybe thats why I'm so grumpy at the moment. I bloody hate Sweet Caroline :(. I'm ambivalent when it comes to International football Sheffield United are my team. I recognise it will be good for the...

    Euro 2020 thread

    How depressing that line up designed to bore the arse off everyone. Italy have 2 slow centre backs and we take off pace and replace it with caution. Englands best hope is to win on set pieces. A long night ahead I fear.

    O'Connell out for another 10 months

    JOC was rumoured to have problems with his knees a while ago. Its been a combination of problems starting with him going off against Bristol City the year we went up. A training ground incident during the first lock down exacerbated his injury. You have to ask why he was played in the first 2...

    The dawn of a new era......

    His ability in the air saved us 10 goals a season. Add in his positional sense, strength and range of passing and he is a big miss. Any one who thinks Robinson or Norrington Davies are the answer has never played centre back.

    Italy v Belgium how football should be played. Both teams better than anyone else left in the competition.

    The dawn of a new era......

    My expectations will rise if Slav is allowed to bring his own back room team in. No sign yet of the promised Spanish coaches. Sports Science needs a complete overhaul and was primarily responsible for the players having nothing in their legs for the majority of last seasons games. Much will...

    Euro 2020 thread

    Grealish got Southgate out of jail. As soon as he came on the Germans became concerned and dropped deeper down the left allowing Shaw to get forward for the first time. Result Grealish involved in both goals. What went before was as dull as dishwater as both teams cancelled each other out...
