This kind of reminds me of the scene from the Simpsons when Kirk Van Houten gets sacked from the cracker factory.

‘So long, good luck’. ‘I don’t recall saying good luck’.

Because that appears to be the attitude that some Blades fans have got when it comes to the latest potential departure from the club.

According to a report from Sky Sports, there are four Premier League clubs that are interested in bringing Blades midfielder John Lundstram on board this summer. The fact that he’s only got 12 months left on his current contract seemingly forcing the clubs to spring into action in hopes that the Blades might sell him now rather than risk losing him for free next summer, something that the club are not totally against according to some reports.

Should the club sell Lundstram this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Despite being a key figure for Chris Wilder’s men this season, scoring five goals and contributing three assists, all whilst having a pass completion percentage of 82.7%, it seems as though some fans are quite happy to see him leave, perhaps seeing his delay in signing a new long-term deal as some act of ‘not being committed’ to the club.

What about you? Do you think we should get rid of Lundstram?

  • I won’t be slagging him off
    He’s done a good job for us, but he understands the wage structure, or should do.

    A new club in the Prem can’t go chucking as much money about as clubs that have been there for years.

    He’s lucky to have arrived in the Premier League in the first place and should always be grateful to our club and Wilder for getting him there.

    He could have been sent to Rotherham or Barnsley or somewhere before the start of our promotion season and nobody would have even thought twice about it.

    So he, if not his agent, because that won’t happen, should think carefully before he burns his bridges
