Fully agree--

Wilder dont say a lot he just gets on with his job  --and he loves Sheffield Utd,

Adomah  to me has been pretty poor all season,-- and dont seem interested--needs replacing--.

Wilder I hope will be our Smith. He needed abit of time but ha shit better each year. I'm willing ti give Smith time if he can give us the wilder effect

This is the first game at Villa Park that I’ve been to since an awful friendly against Valencia in (I think) 2010! Very excited!!!

Martin O'Neill's last game in charge of us I do believe.

I feel positive about this, defence is hopefully gonna stay solid and build from there. I know we have been poor lately but if we can continue to look safe at the back we can turn this corner. 

UTV!

I can't see the logic in opening the Upper Trinity - there are still 3,000 tickets left elsewhere in the ground; a strange one that.

Interesting game this - there's a sort of meh around the whole place, season drifting into nothingness, nowt to play for, nowt to get excited about. We're not far off the playoffs points-wise but we're not looking like we're going to challenge for them, it's all a bit waiting for 2019-20.

But.

Win this and I think you might get a bit of buzz back, Sheffield United are good and we know it, if we can beat them, not only does it keep us within touching distance of the top six, but it might give the place a little bit of spark. A big win could set the season on fire and any kind of win will blow though the embers and provide a bit of warmth.

A defeat leaves us counting the days until the fixtures come out and hoping Liverpool foul up. 

I know which of those two scenarios I'd prefer.

Defies all logic, but I have a good feeling about this one.

Sounds like it’s only going to be around 34k tops. Friday might games are the worst. Eff off sky

Get Carroll and Kodjia in, drop Whelan and Adomah.

I'd imagine we'll see Carroll alright.  Hourihane has played every single league game bar 1 this season (@ QPR), and not been rested in 15 (all 15 were starts).  McGinn is not much better but can't see him being rested.

I work with a fair few Blades fans in our Rotherham office and they are confident of a win for them. I’m not full of optimism to be honest. 1-2.

I'd go with that. Would like Davis to be given some game time

Carroll for Whelan. Davis for Adomah. Davis up front. Abraham allowed to roam, which I am sure I have read he likes to do, coming in from the wing. I think Davis could create plenty of opportunities for Abraham.

Might as well go for a win. For where we are now, a loss is not much worse than a draw.

I worry for us tomorrow night

Yea.. we got smashed by Wigan, didn't manage to score against Reading. 

If sheffield are up for it they could really hammer our confidence.

Statistical comparisons don't bode well here.  Let's just hope we're the banana skin and they stamp on us like ... actually I'll leave it there.
