Lots of Blades fans have been reacting to some rather interesting news regarding their European hopes.

According to a report in The Daily Mail, teams within the top ten of the Premier League wrote a letter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, insisting that Manchester City stay banned from European competition.

The only two clubs outside of the top ten to not join in the letter were, unsurprisingly, Manchester City, and for some reason, Sheffield United. Now you’d think that Sheffield United would be one of the teams wanting City’s ban upheld, seeing as they’re on the verge of European football as a result of it potentially coming into effect.

Did Sheff Utd do the right thing in sticking up for Man City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the reaction on social media seemed to be one of ‘if we’re going to do this, we’re going to do it the right way, rather than with some sort of loophole’, as Blades fans, rather than calling out the club for potentially endangering this chance of playing in Europe for the first time since the Anglo-Italian Cup in the 1990s.

I suppose the club should be commended in a sense for doing things the ‘honourable way’, let’s just hope it doesn’t come back to bite us.
