I suppose it is getting to that time of the season isn’t it?
The time when the thought about the summer and the England squad start looming into people’s minds. Well, perhaps not everyone, but that was certainly the case for a lot of Blades fans on Twitter yesterday.
The club posted a little bit of a stat-pack for defender Jack O’Connell yesterday, displaying just how well he did the last time Sheffield United stepped out onto the pitch for a Premier League game during the win against Bournemouth.
And rather than just take the opportunity to praise him for his efforts in that game, although some fans did, there were others who decided to take things a little bit further, using it as an excuse to try and rally behind him and get him into the England squad.
With people believing that Blades keeper Dean Henderson is in contention to make the plane for the European Championships, it’s not out of the realms of possibility that he could be part of the squad as well.

Will Jack make the England squad?
We’ve just got to get Gareth Southgate down to watch the both of them at some point in the future don’t we?
