Have your say

For me absolutely the right decision. He needs to focus on clearing his name. We are a decent club.

@vstox

I’m not happy with this decision. But #sufc comes first. People claiming to be ‘real fans’ hoping he scores against us?? #stfu #GetAGrip

@samfwalker

Anyway, time to move on. Whole Ched situation has been a PR disaster for us. Let’s now 100% focus on getting out of this poor league. #sufc

@ja_healey

Fully understand the decision! However, I hope those who left during the heat, don’t return! You support a club, not one player.. #sufc #utb

@emily_dunn

The thing that hurts the most is that the clubs name’s been dragged through the sh*t, fans divided and for what? Absolutely nothing.

@Greenyblade

absolutely gutted, wanted him back more than anybody. however,probably the right decision all in all with everything that has gone off #sufc

@kane_tingle10

No one individual is bigger than our club , and nobody is worth having this club dragged through the mud for as it has been #sufc

@1JonDavies1988

What’s the point in serving your time (if he’s even really guilty) and not be allowed to return to work. What a Joke. #SUFC

@DannyC84

was against him coming back, but clearly the media was going to attack United whatever the decision, now I’m annoyed we’ve let him go #sufc

@Drury94

Flapping & on back foot throughout sorry saga but sense prevails and no shame in U-turn. Big picture, look forward, back current team #sufc

@kateburlaga

Decision made now we need to forget about ched and focus on football, will not be happy if the patrons return though! #sufc

@Kyle_crooks

Oh for a Chairman like Dave Whelan. Sticks up two fingers to the do-gooders & puts his Club first #sufc #twitterblades

@DaffinPaul

Can’t believe some of the things I’ve read from fans of the club. Asking the board to resign..really? No one is bigger than the club! #sufc

@pjridders

Good statement. Time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and sign some players who can help get us up. #sufc

@samcunliffe

We are not and never have been a rehab center. Family football club. Don’t like it? Don’t go. i’ll still be there

@Athersstylist

Im more p***ed off at the club for not having signed one decent striker in the 2 and a half years since Ched went down

@MattIsNotFat

Iv always thought #SUFC was a strong club and stood up to the haters .... Regardless of my opinion on the matter they’ve bottled it big time

@JibWorrall

The #sufc @JamesDPhipps have let us down. It’s not the decision itself but the fact that they have dragged my club (not theirs) thru the mud

@MrPaulSg

SUFC Board’s original just and principled stand crumbles. Lily livered jelly bellies. What leadership. #twitterblades #SUFC

@mlandmharrison

In the best interests of the club????? The fans are the club...We have had no say in this cowardly decision #sufc

@donnyblade

I sincerely hope the “famous” patrons of the club never step foot in Bramall Lane again as in my eyes they are not welcome

@fernmorrisx

Sheffield United is one of the worst run club around and has been for a long time, the board should be ashamed of themselves

@ryansufc1994

Can’t wait for Saturday. Let’s get back in headlines for what’s happening on the pitch, time to move on #twitterblades

@M22LLR

Somehow I still don’t think this will be the end of the ‘Ched’ saga. For now I feel let down by the board.

@jake_vs_food

@JamesDPhipps you might have pleased the papers and famous people but hoping you’ve got a cracking striker lined up for us loyal fans #sufc

@nick20022uk

Welldone to the blades tonight, a statement that was a long time coming #UTB #myclubmyfamily #twitterblades

@JDwasp

The ‘problem’ doesn’t go away now though does it, so will Webster, Ennis and co kick up a fuss when he signs for Bury? #SUFC #twitterblades

@Fryyyyyyyyyyyy

Ridiculous that @SUFC_tweets aren’t even allowing Evans to train. Any other convict would be encouraged back to work. Grow some b**ls #sufc

@clarkey245

Personally, I don’t think we needed to sign Ched, I think it’s just the fact that we’re desperate for a striker #twitterblades

@elliemwilliams_

They didn’t expect the backlash, so what are they expecting now? The real fans should of had a say #hypocrites #sufc #twitterblades

@RyanDaffin

Best fans in the land... Worse run club in the land!!! #sufc #twitterblades

@adzblade8

All the best to Ched with his appeal. But the right decision has been made in the interests of the club #sufc
