Up 1-0 at the break.
Fletcher in the 44th ...
Rolando Aarons (59')
It looks like you're doing us a favour tonight, other results going in our favour as well.
Still up 2-0 in the 82nd ...
Should be up to 9th.
Do you know how long I've been begging for an English manager?
Since they dynamic, free-flowing football of Stuart Gray?
Forest, Derby, and Brizzle all need to be caught and passed to get into the playoffs. Villa, Brum, Hull, Pretson, and others need fending off.
Today's scores look pretty good for Wednesday early in the second halves. Brum, Hull and Pretson are all losing. Villa is beating Forest by a goal, which is ok, though a draw would be preferable. Derby are being held by Stoke thus far and Brizzle play their 37th game I-don't-know-when. Swansea losing today would also help, and they're down a goal to West Brom.
So it could be a good day if things hold up.
Pretson now level at ones with the hosts a man down at Riverside. Hold on, Boro!
It's starting to look like you could mount a late play-off push? what ya reckon?
only four points off sixth, but soooo many teams to pass - and still more in contention. still, one game at a time and could get interesting.
And that is literally how we've been doing it...
You lead 1-0. If the scores continue, you'll be in 10th with the worst goal differential of the four clubs tied for 7th, and 1 point behind Derby. The bad news for you is that the Blades (I don't know where that came from but you call them that) won 1-0 at Leeds to pass Leeds for second. Leeds had 70 percent of the possession and 17 shots, but the only shot for either club was the goal. Leeds got a straight red in the 90+1st minute. What's the most important game you've played against the Blades? Imagine playing them in a 3 vs. 6 promotion playoff.
up a goal from Fletcher (10') early in the 2nd half. the bad news is that Hutch came off signaling he'd pulled something around the same time as the goal. since then, Blackburn have controlled the midfield and are said to look threatening.
could be a long last 45.
Nuhiu header made it 2-0 at the hour. Blackburn pulled on back at 72'. And Iorfa made it 3-1 about five minutes later.
and the number just switched to '4' on matchtracker in the 86th. just waiting to see who got it.
… 'Matias after great work by Nuhiu'. that should see it out.
… or not. a second goal has just gone up for Rovers. Bennett in the 88th.
aargh! PNE with a last-gasp winner in the 94th. damn.
Feeling under the weather and then got up and decided to mow the lawn.
Completely forgot about this one until just now.
I'm not even worried about the playoffs. If we make it, we make it.
If we don't we will have fulfilled most folks predictions.
6-5-0 and 23 pts in our last 11 matches...
6-5-0 is 23 points.
Forgetting about this season, what's the most important game you've played against the Blades?
Well for starters, "Blades" because they have two sabres in their shield.
They're more commonly known by us as "The Pigs" because their kits look like bacon strips. They also call us "The Pigs". Some cloudy, muddled, legend has it that one of our stadium grounds was pig farm before it became a football ground. So like I stated above the "Pigs" monicker goes back and forth sometimes.
"The most famous match at Bramall Lane was on 8 September 1951, an encounter United won 7–3 in front of a crowd of 51,075. Wednesday scored after just ninety seconds through Thomas, but goals from Derek Hawksworth and Harold Brook gave United a 2–1 interval lead which would have been greater if McIntosh in the Wednesday goal had not saved a Fred Furniss penalty. Dennis Woodhead equalised for Wednesday after sixty minutes, but in rapid succession, Alf Ringstead, Hawksworth and Ringstead again, and Fred Smith scored for United, Woodhead pulled one back for Wednesday before Brook made the score 7–3 in a match that ultimately did not bring promotion or relegation for either side but is never to be forgotten by United fans.
The Boxing Day Massacre, was a match played on 26 December 1979. It was famous for being the biggest win in recent times for Wednesday, winning 4–0, with goals from Ian Mellor, Terry Curran, Mark Smith and Jeff King. The United side at the time were top of the league, while Wednesday were 4th in the table. The victory for Wednesday propelled them onto promotion and is widely believed to have shaped the next 20 years fortunes for Wednesday while United languished in the 3rd division before being relegated to the 4th division, which is the only time one of the Sheffield clubs has been in the bottom tier of the football league. The match was watched by a record Third Division crowd of 49,309 spectators and is still celebrated by owls fans today.
On 3 April 1993, the two teams met in the FA Cup semi-finals. The game was scheduled to be played at Elland Road while the other semi between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur was to be played at Wembley. However The Football Association was forced to move the fixture to Wembley due to extreme pressure from the fans of both teams. The match itself proved to be a classic, with Wednesday winning 2–1 after extra-time. Chris Waddle and Mark Bright scoring for Wednesday, and Alan Cork scoring for United. The match was watched by 75,364 spectators.
United's most famous biggest win in recent times took place on 24 September 2017, which ended in a 4-2 victory for United in front of a crowd of 32,839 at Hillsborough. Goals for United came from John Fleck, Mark Duffy, and two from Leon Clarke against his former side. With Gary Hooper and Lucas Joao scoring for Wednesday.  The match was the first time United have scored 4 goals at Hillsborough, and also was the largest margin of defeat for then manager Carlos Carvalhal since taking charge at Wednesday. United and Wednesday both ended up mid-table with United falling away from the play-off places to finish 10th despite starting the season well and Wednesday eventually finishing 15th."
Only two points off the playoffs now and more importantly finishing the season in good form.
