The eventual aim is to try and figure out what has caused the problem and if possible how both Sheffield teams can improve and get themselves into the top string again. One of the most obvious explanations for the dip in the teams' success is the …

Sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles and just because all five picks lost, doesn't mean that I wouldn't pick the same five bets again if I had another crack at it. Just like everything went my way in the first week, nothing went my …

The challenge of selecting matches which I think have great …

What I could see and hear, they had an attitude of just turning up for a game and will win, without any hassle, how wrong and embarrassed was they. To make more things worse Oliver Giroud went and got himself sent off, after …
