Well well well. What a win for Sheffield United at Fulham this evening as the Blades made it three wins from three under new boss, Paul Heckingbottom.
Despite only having around 30% possession at Craven Cottage, The Blades produced the type of performance which Sheffield United fans have come to love over the years. It was dogged, determined, and a real team effort as Heckingbottom’s side passed their sternest test yet.
Coming into tonight, the United manager had to make two changes. Oli McBurnie and David McGoldrick dropped out completely due to Covid-related problems. Meanwhile, Ben Davies missed out through a personal issue. However, that meant a chance for Jack Robinson at the back, and the former Nottingham Forest man was superb.
Robinson has not always been a fan favourite at Bramall Lane. But tonight, he seemed determined to prove himself and the Blades fans on social media were delighted with their man. Certainly, it seems opinion has very much changed on Robinson, for one night at least.
