By popular demand (Rhys) here is today's thread......

Games coming thick and fast and this could be an awkward one. Sheff Utd ran away with League 1 last season and expected to hold their own in the Championship. They lost to a Rudy G goal at Boro on Saturday and not many teams will come away from there just one goal adrift. They could look to out-Warnock, Warnock this evening, but I trust our man to pick a team for the occasion.

Our possession against Villa was a worrying 35% and we did give the ball away too much for my liking. The defensive side of midfield and the back four were excellent, but that can't be relied on game in, game out.

Expect Tomlin to appear sometime, but otherwise not much difference to Saturday.

City 2 - 0

I don't think our low possession was worrying - Villa have better players and if we tried to play a possession game against them we would have lost. Instead we let them have the ball and overcommit then hit them on the counter, and it worked fantastically.

Against Sheffield I do see us playing a more dominating game, and as backwards as it sounds to probably struggle a little more this early in the season. If this side can prove they can dominate ball possession against weak opponents and overwhelm strong opponents with pace, then time to get the party hats out.

2-1 to us. Sheffield will play like we played against Villa and might nick a goal against the run of play. Still fancy our quality overall though.

Can't work out this formation so guessing at 5-4-1
Etheridge;
Richards, Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Ralls.
Mendez-Laing, Tomlin, Gunnarsson, Hoillett;
Zohore.
Bennett not in the squad.

I think city will win this but they do have a tendency to lose when I think that.

Great goal. First time M-L has got free, won the corner......Ralls with Whitts' type delivery and Morrison miles above everyone to head home. 1 - 0 HT

Both commentators have said Cardiff are going for the juggler.
