'Has glue on his feet': Sheffield United fans rave about Morgan Gibbs-White

The feel-good factor continued for Sheffield United today as they came from behind to see off Cardiff City in the Sky Bet Championship.

Things were looking bleak for the Blades when Mark Harris fired in for the hosts. The Bluebirds were causing their usual problems from set-pieces, and United were struggling to deal with them at times. However, a red card for Sean Morrison just seven minutes into the second-half saw the game change completely.

Morgan Gibbs-White equalised, before then laying on Billy Sharp to put the Blades 2-1 up. David McGoldrick then got a third, before Mark McGuinness ensured a tense finish by making it 3-2.

Overall, though, it was a fine day at the office for Sheffield United and Paul Heckingbottom. The Blades boss will have been delighted with the work ethic, while the ability to come from behind was also a big plus.


For Sheffield United fans, they simply couldn’t get enough of Gibbs-White. The Wolves loanee is already a firm favourite, and Twitter was awash with Blades supporters singing his praises.

Here’s a look at what some Sheffield United fans had to say, as Morgan Gibbs-White ran the show in Cardiff.
