Sheffield United midfielder, Sander Berge, believes that ‘small margins’ are separating the Blades from having more points on the board this season.
A miserable start to the season has seen United register just a single point on the board. That point came at home against Fulham, a game which could easily have got away from them in the second half.
Berge, meanwhile, has been one of few bright lights in the red and white this season. Arguably the best player, the Norwegian is now firmly established as a key cog in the midfield.
And speaking to the club’s official YouTube channel, Berge believes a positive change is just around the corner.
“We haven’t got as many points as we want but I think we’ve had some very good games and performances,” Berge said.
“We were very good against Leeds. It was small margins and we could and should have won. The Liverpool game showed how good we can perform. Between the boxes we have been as good if not better, but in the boxes the game is decided and we haven’t done as well as we could”.
Berge has played both deeper and on the right this season but seems more at home on in that more attacking right-hand side role. And that could be crucial going forward, with John Lundstram’s time with the club coming to an end.
Confident talk but results need to change
Much like the manager, Berge is talking a good game and concentrating on some of the positives the Blades have shown. And rightly so, there is no point in him dwelling on the negatives.
But results need to change. The big run of games against City, Liverpool, and Chelsea are now done with, although things don’t get much easier.
It’s a big month for United coming up, and Berge will be as vital as anyone if the Blades are to get that first win.
