Whilst ‘the apology’ is appreciated, if you will, from Jose Baxter following another defeat that sees the poor run of Sheffield United for go on and leaves us with (even with time to turn things around) facing an uphill battle to make the League 1 play-offs it doesn’t make things right does it!

That (the play-offs) would have been the minimum expectancy from this season for United wouldn’t it?

Defeat at Bury in midweek means United have now collected just one win, at the weekend, from the last five-matches with the play-offs five-points away. Following this defeat, with him saying he’s a ‘football fan’ too, Baxter told the BBC the club are letting the fans down at the moment.

‘We can only say sorry to the fans, it was a bad performance. I think we are letting them down a bit too much at the moment. I’m a football fan myself and losing a game ruins your week.’

Not only was the Bury win a first in four-matches for them, which included a six-nil thrashing at Coventry on Saturday, it was the first defeat United has suffered against them at Gigg Lane in over 60-years!

Whilst no game is ever ‘a given’ Baxter knows, with respect, games against the likes of the Shakers are games the Blades should be winning.

He wasn’t sure, not that he wanted to be offering up ‘any excuses’ for the lacklustre showing, what’s gone wrong in that game and in general.

‘These are the games that we have got to go and win to get up the table where we should be. It’s very hurtful to get beat. I’m not really sure what was missing, because we started the game well. They say goals change games and it did. Once the goal went in we were chasing the game but there’s no excuses. It was a poor performance from us.’

Apology, I guess, accepted now lets see some actions on the pitch to put this right from the whole team!
