Not the best performance ever today but Orient closed our players down very fast, particularly in the first half and capitalised on a poor piece of defending to go one up. However, all three goals were well taken and we had an awful lot of possession today. MacDonald patrolled midfield and all four midfielders were fab today. Williamson did particularly well and Orient couldn't cope with him - hence the sending off. Thought Hill had a poor game and would agree with one of the callers on footie heaven tonight that he is a bit like Gus Uhlenbeek!
Ched seemed to be trying so hard today and wonder if some of that was due what has been happening in his private life this week - also it didn't help with the away fans chanting 'rapist' at him when United were attacking at the away end. That said the Blades fans were extremely supportive to him and he seemed very appreciative of this particularly after he missed a goalscoring opportunity he turned to the Kop and applauded the fans. He did seem thrilled to score and got a good round of applause when he left the field.
All in all a great day at the Lane especially when the news came through that our Porkular friends had only managed a draw at Colchester. Danny Wilson seemed extremely calm throughout today and I'm sure that has got a lot to do with the professionalism and calmness that is evident from the players. Despite what a lot of us thought and said when he was first appointed he has turned out to be a great manager thus far and I think we would all much rather see him standing there in a calm fashion encouraging the players than a mad nutter shouting and bawling at them.
PS. won over a £100 on the national so a great day out for Hudds Blade and family.
