    They have some decent players if you let them play. It's no good passing sideways and back in your own half, even with the ref giving them cheap free kicks they couldn't muster anything. It will be interesting to see if other managers do the same as Harris did and block off the wingers and let them tap it about in there own half. Todays performance was no surprise to me because we have looked good this season but we do need to put more chances away.

    Lorca Somebody, after all, had to make a start

    I reckon something must've been going on behind the scenes with 'Arry, its crazy not to give him more time. Anyway, looks like the early frontrunners for our new manager are steve cotterill, aitor karanka, nigel pearson or lee carsley, who is going to be the caretaker boss. if carsley does well, i hope he gets the job, he's a local lad and a blues fan, his family go down all the time. as for the others, cotterill seeemed to do well as coach under 'arry here, can see him being offered the job. pearson is another headcase and karanka is a bit meh.

    He knows if he's sacked he gets payed up. Coments like this must have cheered up the owner,,

    "Basically they were quicker than us in the second half, sharper, and we disintegrated a bit really."
    "The goals came from basic errors. What can you do about it?"
    "You stand there as a manager, what can I do about that? What can anyone do. It was just rank, poor play from us that cost us goals. It was very difficult."

    Sheffield derby on Sunday, been over 5 years since the last one, both teams with a decent start too, should be interesting.

    *quietens nerves*

    UTO :thumbs:

    I'm going to make sure I'm too pissed by 1 to be nervous

    I hate the derby matches as well. Too much at stake to enjoy

    I would say hope it's a good game but in reality I'd take 1-0 nil in the 90th minute with it going in off someone's arse. That would make the journey back down the M1 a lot easier

    I'd be staggered if it's a good game. They're always ragged and after 5 years it'll be nuts. I should really check what the odds on a sending off are...

    12/5 with Hills. Hardly worth it at those odds.

    Agreed, it's going to be a shit game, they always are, but I still can't wait.

    Ask me again at 3ish on Sunday ;)

    Awful start, but looked better after that, needed the goal before half time to keep it interesting.

    Great finish by Hooper

    Going to take a while to recover from that.

    United deserved to win. Apart from that 20 minutes at start of second half clearly the better team. If only fat Leon had played like that occasionally when he was a Wednesday player

    I'm happy for the pundits to keep ignoring us. Don't even want to go top tmrw if I'm honest. Just sit in 3rd place til the final bend and overtake in April!

    Yep. Everyone wants to beat you if you're top. Thats why Millwall are keeping a low profile before we pounce :D

    That Sheffield derby was a cracking game to watch as a neutral. Nice to see the Owls wearing traditional type strip too.
    The Blades looked sharp and might give Wolves a stern test tomorrow.
