    Great 3 points. But it's half time.

    We absolutely must beat the Scabs Saturday. I watched them against the Sheep Sha g g ers Sunday and they were busy but punchless.

    Brooks will again be on the bench due to ongoing medical issues.
    Duffy absolutely must start with Holmes taking over if he tires and Brooks again coming on around the 60 minute mark.

    Hope Clarke is fit but if not then Billy and Wilson again. Wilson told to face goal and be positive.

    If we beat the Scabs we are absolutely right back in the top 6 mix.

    Well done Wilder tonight. Pressure on and he delivers.
    Top f u c ki ng man.

    And just how calm was Brooks taking that goal?

    Pure top, top class with precision.

    You can't buy that-- and hopefully no one will.

    I know it was "only Burton" but we played some decent stuff and our second was a great move. Brooks will do that time and time again.....make a run and draw players away creating space. It's just a brucey bonus that his left peg is as cool as a cucumber and he can finish. I agree that he needs to be drip fed into the 11 but my mouth waters at the prospect of this lad playing for us in the premier league next season. Keep believing!! Massive game on Saturday and we all HATE forest. Lets bring the house down!!

    So calm when he took his goal, probably only Billy could have took it so well. That’s it with exceptional players like Brooksy, their speed of thought makes it seem so easy, like the game’s being played in slow motion.

    Exactly that Gray.

    That appreciation of what's happening around them, the clarity, is what makes them so special and appear to have so much time.You could put that finish down to the fearlessness of youth but it's so much more than that.

    Truly special.

    ( His youthful looks ,alled to that skill, allows me to make a comparison with another prodigy from a different sport, but with a Blades connection-Joe Root- and look what he's done so far)

    Agreed TT, regarding Root as well. I wonder if there’s any hope that the powers that be will see the benefit of keeping the lad at least another season or two and build a successful squad around him? He has stated that he’d be happy to stay here and gain experience.

    ENDA took his chance for the first goal very well,but the 2nd goal was a thing of BEAUTY,wonderful touch by BILLY to the DUFFMEISTER who then produced a delightful pass to BROOKSY who not only produced a CLASS finish, his run off the ball told ya this kid is summat SPECIAL(Potentially)I thought Burton looked decent and JAMAL produced a wonderful save at the Kop end but we thoroughly deserved our win.Well done BLADES and on to Satdi to hopefully SMASH the Scabs.UTCB

    Brooks goal was a joy to behold,Bills deft lay off into the Little Maestros path,who then slides an inch perfect pass to the Boy Wonder,who cool as a cucumber strokes the ball past the keeper into the far corner,a thing of beauty,young Davids goal at the Dirtbags was very similar

    I don't think they would even consider getting rid of Joe, Gray.

    He's a nailed on selection for years to come.

    He started in the toughest of environments he could face this winter, after winning 2 series in the summer. He kept the show on the road, even though they took a hammering, unlike previous tours when ther's been rifts, retirements and widespread acrimony after such defeats.

    ATM he's one of maybe 3 world class performers in the team ( Jonny B and, sometimes, when available, Stokes) that are still developing, as opposed to Anderson and Cook, who are at the tail end of their careers.

    He's stated he wants more influence over the team and wants them playing his way and I think they will take heed and build around him.( think of a quieter,calmer CW).

    And lastly,there's no one else that looks remotely capable ATM or on the horizon.

    Personally I was unhappy when he got the job so early but I reckon he's got the mental toughness to prosper and grow into the role

    think it will be an open game their mid table so i would imagine they will have a go could be an end to end game and that might just suit us fancy us for another 3 points

    Indeed. I think it'll be a real ring of fire around him on Saturday. Let's hope Tufty doesn't have to hang his head afterwards, when the man comes around,and that the team walks the line for the full 90 minutes.
