    lets hope there is a reaction from slutsky and the players.
    A positive note. If we'd won just one of the last two games and held on against reading and Norwich, we'd be in 7th now. Plenty still to play for starting with the piggies.

    Greegsy

    Aina Dawson Tomori Clark

    Irvine Meyler Larsson growshitski

    Bowen Campbell

    Growshitski and Bowen can interchange. The other midfield three can shuffle across to cover when growsh is down the wing. Bowen and Campbell to be closer together and work off each other. Not one down the middle and a right winger.

    This lot should have been drilled all week in how to defend as a unit. I expect it to be better. Let's keep slutsky in a job.

    City to win 2-1.

    Match facts
    • Although the Blades have lost just one of their last 17 home matches in all competitions against Hull, that defeat was in their last meeting in December 2010.
    • There have been 13 goals scored in the last two matches between these teams in all competitions - 3-2 and 5-3 wins for Hull in December 2010 and April 2014 respectively.
    • Sheffield United have won six home league games this season, only one fewer than they won in their last Championship campaign in 2010/11 (7).
    • Jarrod Bowen has scored in seven different Championship games this season, with only Bristol City's Bobby Reid and Wolves striker Leo Bonatini scoring in more (8); however, Bowen has ended on the losing side in four of those matches, more than any other player.
    • Meanwhile, Billy Sharp has scored in five games and won all five, the best 100% record in the Championship this season. Sharp has ended on the winning side in each of his last 11 league matches at Bramall Lane.
    • The Blades are unbeaten in their last 15 league Yorkshire derbies (W10 D5) since losing 1-0 to Barnsley in November 2014.

    We need a reaction. We’ll learn a lot tomorrow, one way or the other.

    I can’t see further than a comfortable home win.

    If City lose Phil Brown coming back is the latest rumour in our local.

    Tom's goal still one of my favourites, I re-run it whenever I feel pissed off to cheer myself up.

    Sneaking feeling we might get something from this game, the Blunts are due a wobble, maybe started last time out against QPR, let's hope so.

    I know this won't happen, but I would play the following.

    McGregor
    Meyler Dawson Tomori Clark
    Aina Irvine Stewart Bowen
    Campell Dicko

    Turbo is a waste of a place away from home, better as an impact sub.

    Despite my personal achievements in the weight loss dept, (did I mention I was voted Mr Sleek 2017??), that doesn't seem to have helped us in this past week.

    Luckily, I have another source of inspiration.

    We're getting our bathroom and ensuite done. Ground to ceiling, wall to wall, completely gutted.

    The designer did a great job, and the fitters are frankly ****ing brilliant. Despite a couple of set backs, such as bits not turning up, discovering that the walls in this house (built in 1834) aren't square, or even vertical, or in fact even in any way, they have done a ****ing marvelous job so far. Despite the dog insisting on sitting with them while they're doing it, right in the middle of the room, they've cheerfully cracked on, and created the designers vision in real life. "Yeah, it's got character...ffs" is mentioned a fair bit too.

    The mighty Hull City has character too. Despite the set backs. Despite the owners current head long journey to oblivion. Despite recent results.

    Utd? We've **** them.

    4 nowt to us. You Ull.

    Think we're getting pumped today. Not confident, always hopeful.

    Afraid to say think we we will be under intense pressure and unfortunately our fragile defence will not be able to hold out, 3.0
