What Will Be The Result Of The Match At Sheffield United?


Thursday brings the first of six matches this month. All of the six are eminently winnable, with Sheffield United in seventh being the highest placed. After Sheffield United, we have Southampton (H), Burnley (A), Crystal Palace (H), Man United (A), and Everton (H).

Needless to say, this is a vital month for Newcastle to get some points on the board, especially in our three matches at St James Park.

It all starts on Thursday at Bramall Lane against a team that is unbeaten in their last seven matches. Sheffield United are a well-coached team dangerous in attack and set up in a 3-5-2. It should be an intriguing match-up with Newcastle’s 5-2-3.

For those unfamiliar with Sheffield United’s unique style, Football365 did an excellent article on how Chris Wilder has the Blades play.

Jonjo Shelvey– been outstanding over the past month

Newcastle are coming off their best month of the season. They’ll hope to continue to build on that against Sheffield United. However, we did have a hiccup at another promoted side in Aston Villa last Monday, so we’ll have to avoid a repeat of that.

We expect that there could be a few changes to the team on Thursday, with Steve Bruce talking about making changes for the heavy schedule over the next few months. It will be quite interesting to see what team he selects for this critical match.

Bruce needs to build some consistency with this team. There’s no better time to do that than on Thursday after the exciting draw this past Saturday.

    I’ve a feeling we wont turn up and they’ll beat us with ease.

    Too much drive determination and movement for our lot

    True it seems after a good result we should kick on, unfortunately it often turns out we revert to a lacklustre follow up.

    The one thing we are consistent at is being inconsistent 😉
    If we turn up then I think we could be an awkward opponent for Sheffield because they like to play on the break but as they are the home team the onus will be on them to attack more. Of course we’ll have the normal problem of scoring goals but we have had an extra day to recover or is that clutching at straws?

    Although when we beat city last season we followed that with a narrow defeat to a much better spurs side, after which had two months of pretty decent results.

    Enjoy Maximin while you can because he will be away in the summer when the parasite sells him to an ambitious club for about £35 million.Sports Direct FC only exists to line Ashley’s pockets by buying cheap and selling high when the opportunity arises and getting free advertising for his tat shops.He hates the supporters but you still get 50000 rocking up to the zombie club.You couldn’t make it up.NUFC doesn’t exist as a sporting enterprise that tries to achieve success anymore.Its a money making zombie club with no ambition.

    Tsunki, no attempt at reasonable debate this morning – I was annoyed at you for lumping fans together into generalised pools: “A throng of cheap-sock buyers”? Your sense of superiority astounds me at times and this is why I called you out on what you have done over and above anyone else.

    Surely if you’re not part of the solution then you’re part of the problem and I’m afraid that not buying merchandise or attending the matches does not cut it – we’re all doing that.

    There has been no ‘acceptance of mediocrity’ from any of us, we’re all (generally) of one mind re Ashley, but we do like to talk about something else from time to time.

    Saying Bruce is doing a reasonable job does not mean that we’re satisfied with the status quo, just that we’re pleasantly surprised by the way this season is turning out.

    Love that Neil has Man United away down as ’eminently winnable’. What’s even better is that I don’t disagree!

    😀
