Blades 'expect' Watford walkover

Leigh Bromby - the poor man`s Rory Delap - has told the Sheffield Telegraph that Sheffield Utd fans expect the Blades to 'roll over' Watford on Saturday, such is the expectation at Bramall Lane these days.

A quick peek across a number of Blades fansites seems to suggest that Malky Mackay`s men are considered 'cannon fodder` for the Championship`s bigger boys with some even predicting the Hornets will finish rock bottom and are already doomed…

…presumably because Kevin Blackwell has paid well over the already-inflated odds for some of our, at best, mediocre talent?

And it`s a fact not lost on Bromby. Speaking to the local rag, the former Hornet stated 'Fans expect a lot and so they should after last season…We`re expected to roll Watford over but they will be difficult to break down'.

And Mr Decidedly Average then finished with a few kind words from experience about our Braveheart boss, adding that Malky Mackay is 'very professional and organised'.

Sheff utd are average!! the majority of blades fans are forgetting the grime realities of the championship,and how competitive it is..

Golden, i hope you are right, but in saying that, i feel we could get a point there today.

Expectations met. Thats the biggest 2-0 thrashing you have had for years. If our shot shy forwards had taken half the open goal chances we would have had 5.

In any event, Brombys comments are conviently taken completely out of context, that wasnt what he said.
