Ben and Andrew look back on a pretty pretty good week for the Blades, as they make it 11 goals in the last 3 games with a blissfully routine 3-1 win at Hull. We discuss Billy Sharp marking his 300th Blades appearance with the inevitable, plus more brilliance from Morgan Gibbs-White (let us keep him please), a debut for Adlene Guedioura, and a few w…
 
A bit of a sickening end as the Blades throw away a couple of points at the death against Preston, although Ben and Andrew see more than a few positives among the heaps of frustration. We discuss the game in detail, including another shocker by Jack Robinson, what we hope is a one-off shocker from Robin Olsen, the continuing impact of Morgan Gibbs-…
