Are we the new new Sheffield United with grit after 0-2 down?

Sheffield United has a never-say-die attitude and fighting against all odds to get a result.

0-2 down at Stamford Bridge and fought back to rescue a point in a 2-2 draw.

Look like we are in the same class as the Blades, fighting with grit to savage a point after being 0-2 down.

It spells a good season for us as we will not rollover for any teams but will fight to the end.

A good sign is that this team is all-action and instantly pressing opponent whenever we lost the ball. At least 2 or 3 players will surround the ball carrier to dispossess him and won back the ball virtually all the time.

It is good that the team is still learning Emeryball to press instantly and to play at a high tempo possession-based game.

For the very first time, after a decade of wimp of a WengerBall where we invariably rolled over after being 0-2 down and lacked commitment to fight for the ball.

It meant that at long last, we have a team that we are proud of and will never rollover and die when the results are against them. They will fight on and went down swinging to the end with a snarl.
