    BRIGHTON 1-0 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mina 45'



    A first defeat of the season and we wasted chance after chance in the first half and then we were punished on the stroke of half time by Mina's near post flick! And that turned out to be the only goal of the game...i cant remember the last time we drew a blank.

    Just shows the fraility of a 4-5-1 if Loren isnt firing,Garcia was largely ineffective aswell....with most of the good stuff coming through Davies.

    Sub Brooks had a great chance late on but stuck wide!

    SHEFF UTD 1-3 ARSENAL




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Promes 31'
    Lacazette 69'

    Sessegnon 84' (Loren)

    Lacazette 90'



    Well we have hit some bad form here,against an Arsenal side who look improved from last season...and with Promes and Lemar on either wing they look a very dangerous side!

    We came out aggressive from the start and we had the better early chances with Garcia hitting the post but it was the highly rated Promes who got the opener!

    Lacazette got another as we looked down and out but Sessegnon stabbed home a late goal to give us hope but we were caight on the break by Lacazette again!

    And Arsenal go top with that win! They certainly look the real deal....

    We have some great news as Mahi is back from his injury and in light training! We really need him...

    Loren 19'



    A great narow win in germany which gives us control of the group and virtually puts us through!

    Lorens header was the only goal after we had hit the bar but it was keeper Scuffett who had a sensational game...i counted at least three amazing saves!

    Promoted Wolves next in the Prem and its one we have to look to win...

    WOLVES 2-1 SHEFF UTD

    Soriano 45'
    Soriano 50'

    Fleck 76' (T.Davies)



    Well a bit of a shock here as promoted Wolves beat us with a devastating double from Soriano in a 5 minite spell!

    But it was 10 shots on target to 2 in our favour,so you can see their keeper played a blinder....we werent short of creating chances,but we just dont have that kiler instinct.

    Fleck came off the bench and scored an angle shot with his first touches....Loren hobbled off injured but luckily hes ok....we finished the game without a recognised striker...desperate times! But thankfully Mahi could be back next match....

    Won 3,drawn 3,lost 3 in the league....a very mixed start!!

    SHEFF UTD 1-3 PALACE




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Loren 3' (C.Adams)

    Sax 44'
    Gignac 69'
    Riedewald 78'



    Well ive got to say we are really struggling here in the league...another defeat to a team near the bottom....we really should be winning fixtures like this at home!

    And it was such a great start...a magnificent run by Adams as he crossed in for Loren to head in. But they scored three great finishes,our defence was so poor at times....the worst game at the back weve had all season amd these hopes for a top 4 finish really are fading....

    A nothing match vs AIK next...

    Sessegnon 6'
    Sessegnon 77'



    Well as i said this was a dead rubber but this win confirms we win the group!

    I made a few changes with youngster De Vries up front and it was a morale boosting win if anything,with a clean sheet.

    Sessegnon nipped in to disposess the defender early on and slot in...then later i actually put him up front with Mahi and he proved he can play anywhere...his second goal was a brilliant drive in off the post!

    WEST HAM 1-1 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mahi 17' (Loren)

    Canales 89' [FK]



    I dont believe it....we were denied a narrow 1-0 away win as they scored a direct free kick in the last minute,and my keeper really shouldve saved it!

    Mahi had put us ahead with a cool finish but rode our luck at times as they hit the woodwork. We simply arnt creating enough chances...only 2 shots on target here! We are losing touch with the top of the table here...

    SHEFF UTD 5-1 WATFORD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    C.Adams 6' (Mahi)
    Loren 20' (Sessegnon)

    Ben Yedder 36'

    Mahi 45' (C.Adams)
    Garcia 62' (Stevens)
    Mahi 77' (Sessegnon)



    A much needed league win and theres the ruthless finishing we craved!!

    Adams slotted in the first and then Loren hit a thunderbolt for 2-0....Ben Yeddee scored a classy goal but we went again...

    Mahi headered in and then sub Garcia scored the goal of the game,a sweet volley. Mahi hit our 5th goal with a typical strikers finish as we blew away Watford!

    We still have two Europa League group games which are real dead rubbers as we are already through! Time for some rotation and some youngsters to play...

    uefa-europa-league-final-2017-98.png



    Corluka 45' [OG]
    De Vries 67' (Sessegnon)

    Brandt 90'



    A 5th straight win in a group we are cruising in....Corluka bundled in an OG and then we had Loren off injured AGAIN....and he is out for another 2 months! What a joke this is becoming..

    But youngster De Vries came on and finally got his first goal! A delightful ball from Sessegnon amd a killer finish from the Dutchman!

    Brandt got a really late goal but it wasnt enough.....Man Utd next in the Prem is a big one...they are in 2nd...6 points in front of us!

    MAN UTD 2-2 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Gribbin 36'

    C.Adams 42' (T.Davies)
    Fleck 79' (Sessegnon)

    Lukaku 90'



    Dammit! Lukaku equalises with the last kick of the game!!

    Sub Fleck looked to have won it for us with a great half volley at the near post from yet another brilliant Sessegnon assist...but we couldnt hold out!

    Once again Man Utd treating us with disresepect with another weakened side....Poole,Gribbin and Wilson in midfield?!

    After Adams had levelled for us with a wonderful curling shot they had to resort to bringing on Pogba and Lukaku on and they were so lucky to get something out of this...a draw is no good for both sides...we stay in mid table and Man Utd drift further off leaders Arsenal.

    SHEFF UTD 2-1 MAN CITY




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Nmecha 25'

    Mahi 57' (Sessegnon)
    Sessegnon 67'



    Well we played the other Manchester team,we came from behind again,but we held on this time for a brilliant win!!

    And once again a big team playing young unknown players against us,and it was one who scored,Nmecha with the opener!

    We have our very own Aguero type player in Mahi....and lashed a leathal shot past their keeper Grimshaw (?!) for the equaliser! Sessegnon having another stupendous game...he set up Mahi goals and it was stabbing shot that won it us 10 minutes later!

    We had to survive a Man City barrage late on with defenders flying everywhere but we got this vital win!

    We have AIK in the last group game....they are in an almighty scrap with the other two teams to go through....they are all on 6 points while we can rest our entire team being on 15 pts!

    C.Adams 34' (Mahi)
    Brooks 45' (Mahi)
    Mahi (Brooks)

    Brereton 73'
    Brereton 82'




    Well what a cracker of a match! Its a shame we lost our first game in the group but they needed to win and we made changes so there was always going to be goals!

    And we did amazing to come back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2....but we conceded yet again as Brereton got a brace late on!

    All that effort and Leverkusen went through instead in 2nd place!

    WEST BROM 0-1 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mahi 45' (T.Davies)



    A really hard fought win where we had Scuffet to thank for three outstanding saves,but Muslera in the other goal was even busier!

    Mahi's great control from Davies corner enabled him to poke a shot in off the post for the only goal of the game....it was a great defensive performance after that. We go up to 5th...only 6 points off leaders Arsenal!

    SHEFF UTD 2-2 NEWCASTLE




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Garcia 21' (Mahi)
    C.Adams 34' (Leonard)

    Schopf 48'
    Perez 73'



    A game literally of two halves! We were excellent in the first half,2-0 up with a cultured finish from Garcia and then Leonard played a brilliant pass to Adams who lashed the ball home.

    But they hit back straight away after the break and it was a great volley from sub Perez which shared the points! Really disappointing to lose a 2-0 lead and that win wouldve took us to 4th!

    A big boost is coming as Mayoral is back from a long injury lay-off.....

    EVERTON 0-1 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    C.Adams 58' (Mahi)



    A massive win over 4th placed Everton which sees us leapfrog them! It was a match we dominated but it was only one goal that won it...Che Adams with a wonderful top corner effort,he is having a immense season so far!

    Mayoral is back from injury but im tempted to stay with this 4-5-1 for a bit as we seem really solid...two 1-0 wins in a row.

    Champions Spurs are in 17th?!

    SHEFF UTD 2-1 CHELSEA




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    T.Davies 52' (Troupee)
    Mahi 62' (Garcia)

    Benzema 76'



    WHAT a win over leaders Chelsea,who had won 6 in a row prior to this! I stuck with a 4-5-1 and it worked as we looked so solid...until the last 15 minutes.

    Davies great left foot strike gave us a lead and it got even better as Garcia went on a very strong run and crossed in for Mahi to head in off the bar in spectacular style!!

    But then Benzema struck the post and then got a goal back......and then Scuffett saved his weak penalty!! We got away with one there but its a win that is a statement to the other teams....we need to keep this great form going....

    STOKE 0-1 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mahi 21'



    A 3rd successive league win thanks to a snapshot from Mahi in the area....we really needed a 2nd goal which never came and we had to clear one off the line late on as we just clung on!

    But we are looking pretty solid atm in this 4-5-1....


    Theres a massive match next vs Arsenal...they are just 3 points in front of us in 2nd!!

    ARSENAL 1-2 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Aubameyang 13'

    Mahi 19' (Sessegnon)
    T.Davies 45' (Mahi)



    We are in unbelievable form atm!! A huge win in the context of the league,we win 2nd placed Arsenal and we replace them in the league!

    And ee had to come from behind to do it after Auba had put them ahead...a brilliant through ball from Sessegnon allowed Mahi to slot in a fine finish.

    And then Mahi was creator as spun the defender magnificently on the wing and crossed on for Davies to slam a header in! After that it was a yet another great defensive performance...

    Chelsea are 5 points clear of us at the top....

    Boro in the FA Cup next!

    fa_cup.png


    C.Adams 15' (Mahi)

    Baby 86'

    Brooks 90' (Mayoral)



    Davey Brooks with a last minute winner here!! He slammed a header in from sub Mayorals cross,just after Boro had got a very late leveller!

    Che Adams had put us ahead with a fine close range volley from a Mahi cross.....Mahi has now been involved in goals from the past 8 successive games! What a vital player he is....and hes keeping the other star strikers out.

    The win came with a cost though....Sessegnon out for 2 months! Hes been one of our best players by far so its a big blow...

    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mayoral 47' (C.Adams)

    Benitez 58'

    Garcia 79' (C.Adams)


    We take revenge over Brighton for our defeat earlier in the season and it was a spectacular bicycle kick winner from Garcia late on!!

    Che Adams created both goals as we went back to a 4-4-2 due to Sessegnons injury....Mayoral with his first start in months and he got his first league goal of the season with a header! To say he was our top scorer last season with 18...what a different from last season! He has hardly played....

    We are cementing 2nd place in the league here..

    VILLA 0-2 SHEFF UTD




    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mahi 45' (T.Davies)
    Mayoral 61' (Leonard)


    Well ourselves and Villa both came up from the Championship two season ago,but we have much contrasting fortunes since then and this was an easy win over the strugglers!

    Davies put Mahi through for a simple slot in and then Leonard put a clever low pass across the box for Mayoral to tap in. Loren came off the bench to mark his return from injury....

    We have Liverpool next in the FA Cup!

    We have no money at all to even think about buying someone in this january window....a £14M bid for Loren from Leicester is there but they have no chance.

    C.Adams 85' (Mayoral)


    Che Adams with a late winner at the Kop end to knock Liverpool out!! It was a driven shot that finally beat Karius,who had an exceptional game,pulling off save after save...we had 14 shots on target!

    The season just gets better for us....

    T.Davies 4' (Mahi)

    A.Silva 28'

    Mahi 56' (Carter-Vickers)

    Ndidi 65'



    Well you have to give Leicester credit here,coming back twice from a goal down to end our winning run....in fact they were probably the better team.

    Ndidi got the second leveller,he has been a long time transfer target for us in that DMF role,but his value is £20M!

    Premier_League_Logo.png


    Mayoral 35' (Mahi)

    Gayle 55'

    Leonard 85' (T.Davies)

    Sansone 90'



    Leonard looked to have got a rare winner but we let another lead slip here in another 2-2 thriller!

    Mayoral had put us ahead as he continues to start finding the net and it was another great Mahi assist.

    Chelsea now have a big 7 point lead over us but we are managing to cling onto 2nd place.

    Mayoral 4'
    Garcia 13'

    Phillips 28'

    O'Connell (T.Davies)

    Phillips 82'

    Mahi 90' [PEN]



    An action packed game with an intense ending! O'Connell gave us a captains goal with a bullet header to give us a 3-1 lead but Phillips got his brace to set up a tense finish...

    They hit the post at the death then we went right down the other end and keeper Muscelera got his marching orders for bringing down Mahi! Vallejo went in nets and very nearly saved Mahi's penatly!
