Is anyone else starting to wonder, “Did we get promoted before we were ready?” After all, we only came fifth in the Championship, and were lucky to get promoted. Perhaps the plan (?) was to win the Championship this season, and get promoted because we deserved to.


I don't agree sorry.  If we hadn't gone up, we'd have had an even bigger rebuilding job to do, as Grealish and McGinn wouldn't be here now.

How were we lucky? We smashed the league once we had a couple of defenders in and deservedly won the play-offs. I think we went up a year earlier than most at the club expected but it was deserved.

Yeah same. I don’t think it really matters that much how you go up, it’s what you do next. We’re in better shape than Norwich, having kept our best players and spent big to add others. We’re just imbalanced. 2 good signings in January will see us right.

Smith could have went with Nakamba and Luiz again, which for me never works but he's at least trying something different. Lansbury is obviously in for Hourihane.

As for the forward department, no comment.

Luiz was atrocious against Leicester, worst performance of the game for me.

Be interested to see if Grealish plays more centrally today with McGinn off the right and AEG off the left

This is on RMC sport at 9pm but we've got neighbours coming round for an 'apéritif' (cue three hours of drinking and eating charcuterie and olives) so I'm not allowed to put the telly on.

So are there any pms?

While Luiz was bad against Leicester, who wasnt other than Heaton?

The result today, which I think we can, will have to be grounded out, and play tough, as SheffUtd will be.

Get at them!

Sheffield United leaving gaps like we do. Very open. There will be a lot of goals today
