Blades 'expect to go back up' - Aidy

Blades 'expect to go back up' - Aidy

Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd has notched up the pressure cooker on Sheffield United ahead of tomorrow`s clash at Bramall Lane, insisting "they`re a big club" and "they expect" to get promoted.

Talking to the Hornets official club site, Boothroyd, who has enjoyed mixed success on away days in the Steel City, stated "In terms of budget and squad you`d have to say they`re one of the favourites, they`ve got one of the biggest squads…"

"They`re a big club with as ferocious support; they`re expecting to go back up".

Expectancy is almost certainly through the roof at Bramall Lane - Even a fans poll run by our fellow Vital Sheff Utd friends questions how long fans are gonna tolerate their current lowly league position under manager Kevin Blackwell.

And Boothroyd knows only too well that that degree of pressure AND a shambolic 6-0 beating at the hands of a bunch of kids from Arsenal could come back to haunt his Hornets.

The Watford chief cautiously added "…we know there will be a backlash because Sheffield United suffered a very, very heavy defeat in midweek".

Backlash or no backlash. Expectancy or no expectancy, Bramall Lane is still a tough ol` place to go with an injury ravaged squad.

Hmmm. I'm never comfortable when Aidy starts talking about the other teams prior to the match. Perhaps he should stick to motivating us rather than talking up the opposition; again we started very slowly and gave ourselves too much to do. That's 1 point from 4 away games; relegation form and it seems we're becoming a soft touch on the road. However, he's right it was a tough place place to go and they are a decent team destined for top 6 spot. We on the other hand are heading in the other direction and desperately need to get a result on Tuesday night. Come on You Golden Boys (those of you still standing)
