There wasn’t much to shout about for Sheffield United fans in the latest defeat against West Ham this past weekend.
More missed chances, a wobbly looking defence at times, and another injury, this time to Ethan Ampadu, left most Blades fans feeling the frustration once again.
The game saw Oli McBurnie pass up the best chance of the game for United as the Scotland striker smashed his effort against the bar when through one on one with Lukasz Fabianksi.
However, rather than focusing on the miss from McBurnie, Blades fans can perhaps take some solace from the excellent piece of play from Rhian Brewster to set the chance up.
Brewster, on as a sub once again, expertly turned and played a perfectly weighted pass into the path of McBurnie.
It’s a small thing (and I’m clutching at straws a bit) but it was a small moment among all the doom and gloom for us to be impressed by.
More to come from Brewster
Those who have watched more of Brewster than just his goals will have seen that there is more to his game than just being a poacher.
At Swansea, he did drop off and come deep for the ball a fair bit. In fact, a few of his goals came from this, getting himself on the half-turn and driving at defences or looking for the killer pass.
Yes, it was a tiny moment and one of the only bits of quality we have seen from Brewster so far. But in isolation, it does at least show what he could be all about for the Blades.
Hopefully, we see more of this in the coming weeks, starting with the must-win game at West Brom this weekend.
