    How big a blow is Madine being suspended? Obviously he's a big aerial threat but would he have started?

    Sharp will 100% nailed on score against us. His record against us is pretty good.

    Really can't predict Saturday, it's a big opportunity for both sides - first goal is so important.

    He's been starting in most away games since he joined, so I would imagine he'd have started.

    It might actually help us though because he's made us slightly more direct on occasion. McGoldrick will likely play with Sharp which will make sure we try and keep it on the deck.

    Not Leeds bashing here as I dont follow the 'We all hate Leeds' brigade, however just the fact United are the black sheep supposedly in this race mans I would love them to win here and go another step closer to the Prem. Good luck Blades hopefully see you next season.

    Id love you lot to make the Playoffs as well. I still think Leeds will go up in the top two. Im still waiting for Norwich to have that blip but fair play there doing brillliantly.

    The loss of Madine could be a big blow.

    We actually play better without Madine but we are too predictable and formulaic playing neat tippy tappy football.

    Madine isn’t the greatest player but he’s proven to be so effective when we need a different tactical option. He offers sonething we really lack and that’s a big physical presence.

    With Madine we are more direct with far more long balls but against certain defences they really seem to panic playing against the big physical Madine types, even Madines hold up play and lay offs have been better than I expected.

    Really tricky to predict, could be anything, logic suggest a 1-1 draw.

    Think the key is who scores first? Another key is how long we can prevent Leeds from scoring. Playing at a packed Elland Road is a double edged sword. If LU score in the first 20 mins then the atmosphere could lead to a comfortable win. If LU fail to score then the pressure will mount and then having home advantage could become a disadvantage.

    Really can’t understand why out of the top 3, everybody expected us to fade away. We finished well above Leeds and Norwich last season, so our position in the league this season is just a natural progression. Whereas the improvement in both Leeds and Norwich is a lot more startling.

    Why do you hate us so much?

    We don't give a shit about you.

    I think you’d probably go for a draw in this one, and I think both teams would take it? A defeat potentially quite damaging, certainly for Sheff Utd as they’d go at least two games away from catching Leeds and potentially three from us, with just 8 to play. One more bad week for them and a good one for us and Leeds and it would be nearly over. That said my feeling is the top spot will be decided with maybe 2 or 3 to go and the 2nd will go to the final day...

    From a Norwich point of view any result is obviously good but surely got to hope for a Leeds win, to potentially increase the gap to third.

    Yeah I'd take a point, leaves it wide open if we lose. Too tight to call a result really - both teams have over-performed with the players that they have and deserve to be where they are.

    I think Norwich will pull away and stake their claim as Champions this weekend, they look unstoppable, it's certainly theirs to lose if tomorrow is a draw.

    Shitting it. Could go either way and will be no shame in losing, but what a gift it would be to go into the international break 5 points clear.

    Going to sit on the fence and say it'll be a tense 0-0.

    Surprisingly I'm not that nervous at all today. I have a feeling it'll be different tomorrow though.

    Whatever the result there's still plenty of games left, and we all have some bloody difficult ones too!

    Usual time is Christmas & we’ve had our mini implosion. If we score first tomorrow we will be fine.
