Oli McBurnie and Callum Robinson joined forces yesterday to give a unique insight into the Sheffield United squad.
The Blades strikers were taking part in a Q&A for the club’s official Twitter account and revealed some of their opinions on certain members of the squad.
In what was a light-hearted session from the duo, they had some kind – and not so kind – words for their squadmates.
The pair answered questions on subjects such as best and worst trainer, worst taste in music, most skilful, and toughest player.
Unsurprisingly, plenty of the squad got a mention, with McBurnie in particular not holding back.
Both Robinson and McBurnie admitted that Lys Mousset can be branded as the worst trainer. However, McBurnie did acknowledge that he too can slack off at times. In fairness to the pair, they did also say how good ‘Moose’ had been on the pitch.
In terms of best trainer, Blades fans might have predicted the outcome. Both players mentioned Jack O’Connell for his commitment to each session. But, there was also a mutual agreement that if you’re on John Fleck’s team in training, then you’ll generally win.
Off the field banter
It’s clear from the nature of the Q&A that there’s a great team spirit within the Blades camp. Indeed, McBurnie and Robinson didn’t hold back when it came to dropping a few teammates in it.
Billy Sharp was mentioned as the one who takes the time to sort his hair. Chris Basham was given some stick for potentially having a terrible taste in music. While Ben Osborn was branded the smartest because, in Robinson’s words, ‘he’s been seen reading a book’.
Granted, both players did then say the squad is not the smartest group of players around.
McBurnie and Robinson seem really well settled in Sheffield. Given they have only been at the club five months, it’s good to see them fitting in well with the squad and going about their business.
