    Prem diversity

    Yesterday's game against the Blades showed different styles within the Premiership.

    Sheffield United got into their position using a high energy pressing style,the problem they had against us and also in midweek against Villa was like all teams at the restart they are not yet match fit.

    We are not the most skilful team in the Prem but we had enough to see off a side that will be a lot harder to beat after a few more games.

    As I mentioned in the match thread, the Blades have had a great season before the break. As we did when we finished 5th SU got the ball rolling early in the season and rode the momentum all season. That tight unit reminds me of our season and this break came derailed that momentum, unfortunately for them, lucky for us.

    Every team has started slowly in each match, SU got at us straight away and it showed in the first 10-15 mins. However as you mentioned Sherwood, their style requires a lot of energy and fitness has to be tiptop. When they went down to 10 men their style worked against them as we started to see bigger gaps opening up. It allowed us to work the ball well and kept them to a few chances.

    A good win and a happy Ragzinho Del Mag right now!

    Saudi have bought a stake in BT as well as shutting down the dodgy stream sites in KSA so we are well on our way to getting this take over signed.

    Happy days!
