It amazes me that people think they’ll walk it next season when they’ve been utter sh ite this season and using their working out there will be 2 better teams than them coming down with them for starters. 

 

I just hope to God we stay up this season because next year will be a reyt fwucking laugh.

Used to winning in a lower division! Why would that make you think they're better than United? When they played last season United won both and Norwich haven't beaten them since 2017. 

The tiered promotion and relegation system we have in place in English football is a good start.

 

Yeah, I know how that works thanks.

One team has currently spent the last half a season showing how out of depth they are in the top division. 

 

I reckon team last season than they are this so not sure why you are using last season as an example. Last season Utd were better than 11 teams in the PL according to the table. They certainly wont be this season.

Agreed, also which players will stay would have thought they might cash in on a few ?

I misread that as 'beard' and thought we had another bout of Luhukay-style tonsorial tension on our patch.

The best comparable we have is last season hence using that and they were miles better than the best championship team now, as they have been for a few years, so based on 'logic' why are Norwich suddenly better? because all you have to go on for Norwich is that they're winning against much inferior teams than that United are playing against.

I not saying Norwich are suddenly much better.

Are you saying Utd are playing at the same level as they did last season and everyone else in the PL has improved?

They are worse than Fulham and West Brom and neither of those were all that convincing in the Championship last season. They stumbled over the line rather than being clearly better than the rest.

Probably the worst team in PL history

 

Quite why that qualifies them as better than any team in the championship is pretty baffling tbf

Why didn't Leeds beat Crawley last week?

Just like Huddersfield this season.... they also owed cash to the previous owner...

I think they're rubbish but there is a huge gulf between the two divisions now so failing terribly in the PL is no justification they won't do well in the Championship unfortunately

Ellis - I think I speak for most of us when I say:

 

Please shut the f*ck up.

 

This thread is for mocking Dem Blades, not you just arguing for the sake of arguing.

 

 

 

Speaking of people who talk rubbish:

Spurs paid them a compliment with their set up - yeah, they thought they'd match your set up and beat you easily, they were right, you were wrong, again. 

 

Only one team have blown more points from winning positions than Spurs this season, never looked likely today though Cwissy.

No guarantee they will either, ask Stoke, Huddersfield etc.

So youre saying theyll be be the best in the championship.....because they were good 2 seasons before? That doesnt make sense at all

 

And didnt norwich go up as champions the year pigs finished second?

If the season ended now, on the 17th of January, then this United team probably would be strong contenders in the Championship next time around.

 

The reason being that the players are still playing for Wilder; they're getting beaten by teams with better players, but they're not getting hammered and they've not yet given up.

 

Last time the Blades were in the Championship their success wasn't so much based on individual quality, but rather on management, team spirit, cohesion and the like.

 

Which was frustrating for us, as man for man we looked at least as good as them.

 

However, there's a long way to go yet before the end of the PL season.

 

We've no way of knowing what will be the mindset of Wilder or his players in May.

 

Tufty already looks a broken man, and he gurned, twitched and squinted perhaps more today than ever.

 

He cuts a sorry figure and suddenly looks frail and stooped, and there's half a season to go yet.
