Imagine this team taking part in a steel city Derby at Bramall lane, United down to 10 men, legs flying everywhere.

 

The players have done us a favour this season to avoid it.

Very true. Also, I think if we did stay up it would just be delaying the inevitable anyway.

This current team is in 8th position in the division for taking the lead in matches and in 1st position for losing from a leading position.

 

This team has failed to take ONE SINGLE POINT when going behind in a game across the whole season so far.

 

Pathetic.

Sheffield’s not big enough or passionate enough a football city to carry two clubs. It’s been blatantly obvious for years. If the city had one club like Leeds, Leicester or Newcastle it would’ve been far more successful.

Good thread this and agree with everyone on here. DC has hardly covered himself in glory since the play off debacle.  But we’ve had so many chances this year to get out of this hole and continually blow it.  Derby are there for the taking to be relagated and we’ve allowed them and or Rotherham an easy route out. Pathetic.

We could have had a reyt laugh this season just by staying up after the points deduction.

 

It’s not like we haven’t had the opportunities but we’ve failed time after time after time in big moments purely and simply because of lack of bottle and leadership.

 

You can rant all you want about the chairman and the state of the club, various managers etc but what happens on the pitch is really what counts and this spineless bunch should hang their heads in shame.

 

We had a list of the mad stuff that the chairman has done.  You could easily make a similar list of stupid and pathetic stuff this team have done, out there, on the pitch over this season.

 

Failure to fight back in any game even to achieve a draw, losing from winning positions, stupid sending offs, missed chances, crumbling late on in games, the list is endless.

 

This club lacks leadership on and off the pitch and looks to have denied us, and this city, what could have been a good season of fierce rivalry in the same division next season.

 

Pathetic.

Very good post..

Never agreed with this - obviously if we had one team we would have an extremely large fan base. But the fact we were 1 game away from the prem and the blunts have just spent 2 seasons there shows we do.

 

We also both have very respectable fan bases in the grand scheme of things.

 

Bad management and very bad signings have caused our current problems and poor signings by the blunts have caused theres.

 

Clubs you mentioned such as Leicester and Leeds who only have 1 team have spent many years in the lower leagues.

Not 100% sure but isn't Liverpool a similar sized city? Manchester isn't much bigger but they seem to be doing ok

I've been thinking the same. The last two-three seasons have been very much something else than fun, and the next season in Championship would definitely be our last as we have to replace almost a full squad during the summer. I can see a relegation the only wake up call we have left in the toolbox. And that it hopefully prevents Paxo from stuffing overpaid past-it players to the club anymore.

The squad needs a huge overhaul. The players who are out of contract, I can’t think of many I would like to extend. We need a new look, a new identity.

I’m not sure I agree. You’ve only got to look across the Pennines - “Liverpool” is a smaller city and yet has 2 very successful clubs,  and only 30 miles from Manchester, plus all the Lancashire clubs such as Bolton, Burnley, Tranmere. Leeds is larger and has very little competition (Bradford and York), and nothing to the East or North for miles. I think it’s down to one simple thing - clever massive  investment.
