Only one word for Blades' performance today - MAGNIFICENT!
In every department, every player made a superb contribution
to this excellent performance against Tipton Olympic in the League Cup.
Blades went 0-1 down in the first half when Tipton
had their only attack of the first half and scored with a well placed "top corner" shot that gave Nico no chance - at this
point Blades should have been 5 -0 up as they had chance after chance but were unable to put them away.
The old Blades
would have let their heads drop at this but we're seeing a different outfit these days and once "The Rickster" put us level
with a really well deserved goal the football started flowing and very good goals from Moorey and Jacko saw us 3-1 up at the
break and playing some GREAT football.
After the break, Tipton didn't know what hit them as Blades came out from the whistle

All of the goals were as a result of some excellent football and team work and none of them were easy to put
Defence (including Nico in goal) excellent as a unit, midfield doing the defending and attacking that we've asked
them to do all season and the strikers doing the job in the final third of the field to good effect saw Blades playing today
to their true potential and, if they can keep this form up, the season will end on a high.
Man of the Match - after an
inspiring Captain's performance in the midfield - was Foz (with Josh F a close second in the runing also having a stormer
We're still in the League Cup (the watching Wednesbury Oak Manager (our opponents in the next Round) must
have been in a bit of a shock and will hope that his team fare better than Tipton - in this form though Blades are going to
make teams wotk very hard to beat them.
Thanks lads for another superb performance - let's keep it going!
