Blades are back on form but cut out the nonsense

Have your say

My friend Wednesday morning said: “Charlie - I think my newspaper has mis-printed the scores. It says Notts County 2-5 Sheffield Utd”.

Don’t you just love football banter, especially when it’s a result like that. Keep the jokes coming if they bring around results that have a five next to the Blades.

This week’s position still second and two points clear of third placed Sheffield Wednesday. It’s almost like United and Wednesday are taking it in turns, one wins the other draws or loses and vice versa.

The top five positions just don’t change though and hopefully they won’t.

This quote from a Notts County view point sums it up nicely “We were beaten by a well organised and well drilled Wednesday side at the weekend.

“Tonight sounded similar, yet United were keen to go in for the kill when blood was smelt.”

United just need to keep the momentum, the determination in the squad and that killer instinct. Ched Evans and Richard Cresswell have been prolific for us so far.

Credit to the fans though as well, a great turn out for a Tuesday night and by all accounts they were singing their hearts out.

It was however horrible to hear that a minority group of fans were acting like animals that should be kept in a cage in a zoo. They should be seriously ashamed of themselves.

The Blades had just won 5-2 and a handful of Unitedites banged on an elderly gentleman’s car with a child in the front, screaming abuse at them. I don’t understand that mentality at all. It was the same on Saturday night at the Sheffield Arena watching Kell Brook and Matthew Hatton.

A minority group of people thought they were boxers in the build up to the headline bout and started attempting to literally smash each others faces up in the crowd.

Why when you’ve paid for a ticket to watch the boxing would you decide to start brawling and spend the night in a police cell? It’s embarrassing and pathetic.

My 13-year-old brother was with me on Saturday. Kids should be able to watch a live sport event whether it’s football or boxing, sport can make a change in a young persons life.

My brother who is a budding young boxer was so inspired by Kell Brook and Kerry Hope. Why should he be made to feel unsafe and apprehensive?

Why should an elderly person be intimidated like that going to watch the sport he loves?

Moving on to a more positive note, United welcome bottom placed Chesterfield to Bramall Lane next week who have a win percentage of 11 on the road.

To add to that on April 28 at last Sheffield United is live on Sky when the Blades take on Stevenage with a tea-time kick-off.

United’s final home game of the season and here’s hoping our final home game in League One. Forget watching it at home though, Sky+ it and make sure you are there!
