In many ways they rather resembled the team that had once again disappointed them: a disorganised, unhappy rabble whose efforts were never likely to be met with immediate reward.Robson remains, for the moment, employed but his position is only slightly more secure than his car, which needed a phalanx of guards on Saturday to stop angry fans from trying further to personalise the number plate. Eventually it was driven to safety by an aide, as indeed was Robson when he departed, silently, in the green Beetle belonging to the wife of his assistant, Brian Kidd.Kevin McCabe, chairman of Sheffield United plc, was fortunate enough to miss the game but later telephoned a local radio station to assure listeners that he intended to “deal with the situation with a cool head and success in mind”, a statement which can hardly be interpreted as a vote of confidence.Billy Sharp’s second-half header, which thumped against the post, was as close as the Blades got to beating a below-strength Scunthorpe side reduced to 10 men in the ninth minute. It was a performance every bit as wretched as the result it secured.”What you’ve got to do in these situations”, said Gary Speed after the game, “is get hold of the ball and be prepared to make a mistake.” By that criterion United are performing admirably – they were not just prepared to make mistakes but also absolutely determined to carry that threat through. This was a festival of unforced errors, every gaffe magnified by the understated efficiency of Scunthorpe’s performance and the swelling, simmering ire of the home fans.The referee, Rob Styles, who gave Liverpool a debatable, decisive penalty in his last visit here on the first day of last season, was the first to feel their anger. His questionable decision to send off Grant McCann improved his popularity but long before the end he had been forgotten as abuse poured from the stands towards Robson and his team.”We know what the fans here are like,” said Jim Goodwin, who was intelligent and energetic in the Scunthorpe midfield. “They’ve got high expectations, and rightly so – they’re paying some top players some top money. On paper Sheffield United should be battering us really.””It is difficult playing in front of our fans,” said Matthew Kilgallon. “They just want us to win every game and get a bit moody if we don’t.” Though United have lost only one of their last eight in all competitions, they are 17th in the league and clearly it will not be just the fans getting moody if they do not secure more victories soon. On this form it is hard to see one coming from tomorrow’s trip to West Bromwich or Sunday’s visit of Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. One day McCabe may have to choose between keeping success in mind and keeping Robson in work.Man of the match Jim Goodwin (Scunthorpe United) @Simon_Burnton Share on Facebook Championship 2007-08 Share via Email This article is more than 11 years old Share on Pinterest Scunthorpe Share on Messenger Soccer
