Unchanged team for the 4th consecutive game for us. On paper you'd have it as a home banker but I think it will be tight, with us edging it late on to go top.

Went to the game today

Blades 1 Tigers 0

We played OK, some nice spells of passing especially 1st half but overall we looked a bit labourered and below par, especially in the 2nd half as we started to visibly tire towards the end.

Credit to Hull for not sitting back being negative. They gave us a game in a tough fairly evenly contested match.

Had a good view of penalty, quite similar to the Harry Kane penalties in the World Cup. The Hull defender failed to block Jack OConnell run and realising his error basically rugby tackled him off the ball. After the penalty for the last 15 minutes we sat back and it was all Hull but they never looked like they’d equalise as the whole SU team defended well as a unit grinding out a win.

Can see the arguement why a draw might be seen as a fairer result however if one team deserved to win then it was us. Thought Hull looked half decent just lacking confidence up front, they certainly didn’t look a broken relegation team.

The win sends us top of the league and the signs look really good.
We play a very formulaic style, use virtually the same tactics, formation, style almost every match but teams still can’t seem to stop it. No outstanding individuals, just a well drilled team unit playing a quick short passing game that attack as a team and defend as a team.
