At the end of the day, this really shouldn’t be that much of an issue.
We’re exceeding expectations by a country mile, we’re comfortably above the relegation zone and things overall are looking rosy at Bramall Lane. Perhaps it’s the talk of Champions League that has got people thinking that little further ahead and perhaps being a little greedy, but it would seem that fans are wanting more and more out of this side.
Sheffield United were held 1-1 against Brighton And Hove Albion yesterday, but judging by the reaction on Twitter, one point simply wasn’t enough for a number of Blades fans.
They seemed to be rather annoyed by one decision, or lack thereof made by manager Chris Wilder, and that was his call to leave Lys Mousset on the bench during the dying stages of the game as he instead called on David McGoldrick to go try and grab something late on.
Why no Mousett ?? Would have torn them apart awful substitution

2 chances to bring Mousett on, which we needed, but gets told to sit down while McGoldrick and Lundstram did nothing

Not one to usually criticise Wilder decisions but I really don’t get why McGoldrick was brought on instead of Mousset today. Thought we really could’ve done with his pace and a goalscorer on the pitch. He was ready to come on at one point too.#twitterblades #sufc

Can’t for the life of me figure out why we didn’t bring Moussett on…

For me Wilder made the wrong sub… that game was perfect for Mousset #twitterblades

Wrong tactics today with mcburnie, didn’t realise how big their defence was was much more suited to moussett and his pace

Should Wilder have brought on Mousset?
Like I said, at the end of the day it shouldn’t really matter, but when you look at their respective goal returns this season, you realise that the fans may just have had a point after all.
