Blackwell hits back at Johnson quotes

Last updated : 28 October 2008 By Jamie Furniss
And the Blades manager Kevin Blackwell refused to agree with Johnson when he said 'Sheffield United aren't looking to pass the ball, they're looking to put it down your throat'.

Blackwell's response to those comments are: "Obviously Gary hasn't been watching us that often has he. But no, I don't resent it. You've got to be able to deal with all types of balls in this type of division, long balls, short balls, square balls and diagonal balls.

"Bristol came here and tried to do that to us not so long ago but it didn't work. You can count on one hand the number of teams that have totally played their way out of this division.

"You've got to be astute but also work hard. You get nothing without that."
