'Bang on', 'Nonsense': Sheffield United fans discuss Roy Keane's comments on Chris Wilder

Roy Keane gave a typical and passionate assessment of Sheffield United last night, following the Blades’ loss to Liverpool at Bramall Lane.

The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland skipper insisted that criticism aimed at Chris Wilder was fair. Keane also pointed out how United had got their recruitment wrong, citing a lack of improvemen to the first XI as key.

Keane’s comments, in our view, were both right and wrong. He was right in the sense that Wilder has left himself open to critics. On the other hand, Keane didn’t touch on the injuries we’ve had, or the dramatic loss of form of some of our better players.

Naturally, the ‘rant’ from Keane made its way onto social media platforms and quickly had Sheffield United fans debating whether he was right or wrong.

Everyone loves a good debate on Twitter. And Keane’s comments caused exactly that among the Blades fanbase.

Some agreed with what the the Sky Sports pundit had to say, while others were quick to point out what Keane might have missed.

Here, then, is how some Sheffield United fans reacted to Roy Keane’s blunt and direct comments about Wilder and the Blades this term.
