I don’t know if this counts as being ‘off the hook’ in the grand scheme of things.
But he’s certainly doing his best to try and make things right after the last three results for the Blades, and I can’t honestly say that I blame him.
That’s the vibe that I get from Chris Basham’s comments after last night’s display at Old Trafford. Speaking to the club after the game, the defender expressed how disappointed he was in the performance and how the players let Chris Wilder and the rest of the backroom staff with the way that they played.
At least you can say that he was honest and upfront about the whole thing and not trying to make excuses about the whole thing.
Are you worried by our start since the Premier League restarted?
Perhaps it’s that honesty that has brought him such support from the Blades fans on social media, as they were full of praise for the 31-year-old.
Honest and frank interview by Bash, chin up, positive and go again Sunday

The only one who has even looked like he is up for it after the restart. The fans representative on the pitch.

Top Man. Genuinely sounds gutted and at the moment he’s the only player who looks like he wants it

He looks totally dejected and maybe lost a bit of heart….what a guy!

Although it’s only bash what’s making the effort

Top bloke. He’s feeling it too

Well said Chris. Must have taken a lot to come out and do that interview. What I liked was no excuses. My opinion of you has gone right up. All the very best for the last seven games.

What about you? What do you make of Basham’s comments about the loss to Manchester United?
