    What price for Leonard?

    Had all gone a bit quiet other than a new contract offer from us, but now Sheffield United are apparently preparing an increased bid (http://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/sheffield-united/sheffield-united-blades-prepare-new-bid-for-midfielder-1-8649108). With one year left on his contract...

  3. Five things the sheffield star learned on saturday

    No 4 ; Jack inflicted Payne On the opposition front, Southend have a star on their hands in Jack Payne. Just turned 21 last month, the midfielder was the star of the show in the first half with an almost perfect midfield display. He was hard-working, skillful, showed terrific passing, scored...
  4. The Thursday Dilemma - Ched Evans

    If all of the circumstances were the same, it just happened to be Southend who had employed him and Southend who now wanted him back and playing. Would you sign a petition against him? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-28769026 Background: More than 60,000 people have...

    Thought this was pretty funny! http://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/173646-sheffield-star-issues-apology-to-sheffield-united-fans-for-owlstalk-ad/ Saw a couple of United fans at work today and even they admitted it was pretty good!:smile:

    Leeds to consider suing over Tevez

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/l/leeds_united/7949957.stm That's why. Can we sue them because if Sheffield had stayed up then last season Leceister might have stayed up and they beat us this season so it cost us three points??

    ....90 minutes to watch it, 90 minutes to write it. I'll never get that time back. Never. West Ham 0-0 West Bromwich Albion So West Bromwich Albion are just a pretty team are they? Tell that to Rob Green, the West Ham goalkeeper who felt the full wrath of the struggler's newly found nasty...

    Cutting 3mm perspex

    I tried a circular saw but the blade was a bit fierce and broke it up. A Jigsaw with a metal cutting blade makes the stuff so hot it goes to a gungy mess. Can you get circular saw blades specifically for this job? Any ideas?

  14. Hume Fractured Skull

    Being in sheffield this is kicking off a bit, I'm looking forward to 5-a-side later when I play with a Blades fan and a Barnsley fan! http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=S6adTWYDoa4 That's disgraceful, and I reckon Morgan is going to have a long ban. Blades seem to love him for his no nonsense...

    Stop using the flippin' sprinklers!!!

    By all means water the pitch on the morning of a game, but it doesn't need watering just before it kicks off! Haven't the powers that be realised yet that half the team seems to struggle to keep their balance when the pitch is too wet, and that the shaded part remains like that throughout the...

    The Kids Are More Than Alright

    Arsene Wenger stared down his inquisitor and smiled. Just half an hour after his young Arsenal side had demolished Sheffield United by six goals, the old quote, "You can't win anything with kids," had been offered up to him. "These players," he said levellely, "do not play like kids." They...

    Stupid England Get There Slowly

    The signs of improvement are visible, but Fabio Capello's mission to revitalise the England team is still some way from completion. There were moments, during this frustrating, attritional non-contest, of class and sophistication, but sporadic style couldn't eclipse the fact that this side are...

    Cristiano Ronaldo's endorsement

    I interviewed Ron Harris, the legendary Chelsea defender, at Stamford Bridge once and it was a real eye-opener. As we sat, drinking coffee and chatting about Jose Mourinho, people walked past with their eyes on stalks. Fathers could be overheard telling their sons, "That's Ron Harris, that is...
  19. West Sham Shocker!

    Having cheated the Blades out of their rightful place in the premiership and got away with all sorts of alleged dodgy financial shenanigans, I heard today that West Sham demanded six grand from the Shrimpers for the game on the 28th July. It's nice to know that they have absolutely no shame. How...
