It’s always nice to get one over on that side from the north of the city.
And any chance you can to reminisce when we manage to beat them, particularly at their place, you should always take it. Which is exactly what the Sheffield United social media team did yesterday.
Yesterday marked the anniversary of certainly one of my favourite victories over the Owls, the 2-1 victory over them back in 2006 when Michael Tonge and Ade Akinbiyi (remember those names?) were on the scoresheet for the Blades.
And whilst any victory over that lot should be appreciated, the fact that it came in the season that brought us promotion to the Premier League makes it even sweeter.
So when the club’s social media team put out a tweet reminding fans of that day, they were more than happy to jump on the bandwagon and join in the celebrations, and many more of them took the opportunity to mock and laugh at Wednesday.
I mean you know it was poor opposition when Ade got on the scoresheet

Rumour has it, when Morgan & Akinbiyi bumped chests, they split an atom.

A derby game and their place looks half empty. Speaks volumes about Wednesday fans. 🐷

Remember that Ade goal nearly gave me an asthma attack!

The commentator – “they were caught hopping by the bounce”. Some things never change then 😂
