I get this might not be a popular view point, but I think a good morale crushing defeat to a championship play off chasing side is just what the doctor ordered.
I get the distraction but when it gets to finals semi finals it works for not against you and it boosts morale of fans and team.I’d rather Sheff U won and a big Wembley day out to look forward too. Any distraction is good for us and it’s another game they will need to play. I think Blackburn may edge it though.
Maybe but I’m not convinced. Say they win today and then they hit a couple of Dodgy results in the league and then they have to play City or United in the Semi and get a thrashing they will feel like everything’s falling down on them and extra tired legs. Defo Sheff U win for me but I do take your pointI get the distraction but when it gets to finals semi finals it works for not against you and it boosts morale of fans and team.
To miss out now said all that.
I wasn’t Sheffield tears
