I suppose we need to try and find some form of positive out of that result.
And I think most of those positives are going to come from one player.
Norwegian midfielder Sander Berge has slowly been making his way into being a prominent member of the first-team at Bramall Lane, only completing ninety minutes for us once so far, following his club-record move in January from Belgian side Genk.
Thrust into action yesterday off the bench following an injury to John Lundstram, Berge certainly got in on the action, completing 71% of his passes and getting away two shots, and Blades boss Chris Wilder was very happy with his contributions on the day, and judging by the comments, so were the fans watching.
How many goals will Berge score for us this season?
Less than 3
3 or more
At the time of writing (14:00 on Monday 29th), Berge currently holds a slight lead over forward Oli McBurnie for the honour of Man Of The Match from @The_Bladesman on social media, something he’d thoroughly deserve.
Thought he played quite high up today, correct me if I'm wrong, but was superb you can see why hes highly rated…..UTB

Agree. If he continues to develop, he will be a serious player

What about you? What have you made of Berge’s time in Sheffield and what he can offer us going forward?
