Playing a bit of catch up here, but I found the reaction to Sheffield United’s draw with Sheffield Wednesday last weekend pretty interesting.

Hosting the near neighbours at Bramall Lane for the tie, bragging rights were shared when it came to the final result – scoreless – but let’s face it. There was only going to be one winner, sadly we couldn’t find the winner.

75% possession, 19 chances overall and five on target compared to their one, but we paid for David McGoldrick’s penalty miss more than many imagined at the point.

Manager Chris Wilder was quoted immediately after the game as saying to the BBC.

“I thought we were outstanding. We had a plan, we stuck to that plan and we totally dominated a team that is full of big names. I’m not walking away tonight feeling any disappointment about how my team has played and I would rather be in our changing room with the way that we played, the plan we’ve got and the way we moved the ball around the pitch than the opposition. I thought their goalkeeper was outstanding all night and their best player by a country mile.”

There are plenty of Blades fans who will have banged that exact drum following the fulltime whistle, but there were plenty of others who rued not taking the points to return to the top of the Championship table.
