Wilder's tactics so far

Posted by Bergen Blade on August 15, 2016 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)

By all accounts, Chris Wilder's preferred formation at Northampton was 4-2-3-1. After joining the Blades he stated that he had a preferred system, although he didn't actually say which one. But he did reveal he would be signing players to fit the system, not vice versa. After the Blades seemed to play most pre season games with a 4-2-3-1 system most Blades assumed that would be Wilder's preference.



In the final pre season game vs Derby we lined up like ...

How will we line up for the big Kick Off?

Posted by Bergen Blade on August 3, 2016 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (2)


Another season is about to start, and the Blades will make another attempt at getting promotion from League One. It's been a pretty busy summer at the Lane and Bolton away is our first away game. How will Wilder compose his team?


I think he may go with the line up that started in the last major pre season game vs Derby, which was this:

Wilder's playing style

Posted by Bergen Blade on May 13, 2016 at 6:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Chris Wilder is the new Blades manager after the club wasted little time in finding a replacement for the departed Nigel Adkins. Wilder has done a great job at Northampton, saving them from relegation and building a Championship winning side on limited resources. Most Blades will be interested in what differences will we see on the pitch at the Lane.

Intervju med Tony Agana fra 2011

Posted by Karl Haakon Bjerknes on March 5, 2016 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (0)


I 2011 fikk jeg en ide om å intervjue Tony Agana i anledning en av mine reiser over for å oppleve Sheffield United live.

Medlemmer av Scandinavian Blades var med på å forme en intervju-guide som skulle danne grunnlaget for samtalen.

Av ulike årsaker fikk jeg aldri fullført nedskriving av intervjuet i 2011 og til slutt tok Lars Erik Bakken fra Dramme...

Huge clear-out expected this summer

Posted by Bergen Blade on January 31, 2016 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Regardless of how this season ends, it looks likely that there will be a huge clear out at Bramall Lane this summer. Many players are out of contract. Some are completely out of the favour, and others are probably considered past their best and therefore unlikely to be offered a new deal.

Vre sjanser p Old Trafford

Posted by Bergen Blade on January 5, 2016 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Sheffield United var et meget godt cuplag under Nigel Clough.



Som underdogs hadde vi typene som var flinke til å jage, dekke rom, løpe mye demme opp, frustrere. Med Doyle som rutinert anker bak rappfotede terriere som Louis Reed og Stefan Scougall klarte ikke lag som Southampton, QPR og Tottenham å spille oss ut. Samtidig contret vi bra. Reed og Scougall hadde l&...

What Adkins learned this week

Posted by Bergen Blade on October 18, 2015 at 2:50 PM Comments comments (0)



Nigel Adkins is learning things about his squad every week. All season he's been making tweaks, adjustments, changes in selections, roles and formations to try get the balance just right and to get the most out of his players. I'm still hopeful he'll get it right eventually.


Against Oldham he started w...
