In fairness, there’s a reason that he hasn’t featured all that much this season.

It’s because we should only be using him in an emergency, and after John Egan’s red card on Sunday, I think it’s fair to say that this was an emergency. It’s just a shame that he didn’t manage to come to our rescue like I’m sure we’d have hoped.

I’m talking of course about Blades defender Phil Jagielka.

Making only his second start of the campaign, the other one coincidentally being in the reverse fixture against the Red Devils, the 37-year-old didn’t put in the greatest of performances, but then again judging by the score line, neither did the rest of the defence.

Do you have faith in the Blades' levels of fitness?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But Jagielka certainly came in for a lot of criticism from fans on social media, both during and after the game.

What about you? What did you make of Jagielka’s performance last night?

  • When asked if we were ready after the virus Lockdown the answer was a resounding YES from Wilder.
    But this side lacked the skill and determination that we showed in the first half of the season.
    When manU scored their first goal Simon Moore was walking directly towards Wilder with the camera over Moore’s shoulder Wilder’s lips uttered ”SIMON,WHAT THE F… WERE YOU DOING” then Wilder turned away in disappointment and slated someone else.
    The fact is we are not ready and don’t have strength in depth this has nothing to do with the virus.
    We simply are not good enough,there’s no creation and no shots not even on target ???
    Its poor and in the prem you get punished quite easily when you play poorly.
    Back to the drawing board for Wilder & Knill at the moment no matter who they pick they wont be good enough,shame to end the season on a sour note but it looks that way !!!
