    MATCH DAY THREAD : Fulham v The Mighty Blades

    After some signs of improvement leading to some optimism, tedium has set in again. Not least because the sides we may have been able to catch have improved their results too. It seemed a tall order 6 weeks ago, and if anything the gap seems to have widened. I don't want a team of quitters but as...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : West Ham United v The Mighty Blades

    So after our 6th win in 9 games, tonight we face a side that do not generally rub shoulders with the 3 team we lost to. So if we have improved, this is the tester to see just how much, and to get a positive result. I'm not very confident to be fair... But anyway... Any team news? Baldock...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Chelsea

    So winning is becoming something we've shown we can do with 5 wins in the last 7 I think. Obviously Chelsea present a stern test, and perhaps it's a shame Lampard isn't still in charge for this one... Anyway... Any team news? Ampadu cannot feature.. Stevens fit? Baldock injured? Osborne...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v West Brom

    So after the pretty decent performance but ultimately pointless at the weekend we welcome West Brom to BDBL in a last chance game I'd say. Win this and who knows, though still a tall order. Fail to win and it is all over... So.. Any team news? :) One or two returning? But stick with the same...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : Manchester United v The Mighty Blades

    So after another positive result in the cup we now head to Old Trafford in a daunting trip. Perhaps not as daunting as it could be on the basis we are already so far adrift that many have already accepted the likely fate. Anyway whatever will be will be... So... Any team news? :) Egan...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Plymouth Argyle h

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Tottenham

    So after the long awaited first win of the PL season for us, we face a much sterner test in the shape of Tottenham. And we face that test with up to 7 players missing... Anyway... Any team news? :) Haa anyone recovered? Are the 11 starters from Tuesday available? I say it'd be just a...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Everton

    So after encouraging signs in the last couple of games can we finally chalk up our first win, which would actually start to make the table look a little more respectable. Obviously however any team that was sat on 5 points (if only) after the boxing day games would pretty much look like a write...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : Brighton v The Mighty Blades

    Well despite a decent last 10 minutes (and decent first 15) the result on Thursday was as expected. At least we managed a couple of goals and maybe a little confidence can be taken from how we finished the game. Very important game today for those that want to still believe in the possibility of...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : The Mighty Blades v Manchester United

    So after the scintillating performance against Southampton we welcome Manchester United to BDBL. They are seeking their 10th consecutive away league win, while our home form is woeful. Seems pretty obvious what will happen... McBurnie seems to have injured himself? Mousset, Mcgoldrick or...

    MATCH DAY THREAD : Southampton v The Mighty Blades

    What joy, back in action with the relatively long trip to Southampton. The saints are going very well this season and despite creating very few scoring chances, they defy the odds by scoring... In some ways opposite to us (though to be fair we are notcreating a whole load except in a couple of...
