While VAR dominated Chris Wilder’s comments in the post match presser, he paid tribute to our travelling support who were in great voice the whole night in Sheffield.
Despite being visibly frustrated by Shelvey’s goal and another VAR incident that went against the Blades, Wilder was full of praise of the travelling Geordies.
Here’s what he had to say after the game:
“I think if that was turned on its head tonight, at St James’ Park, it would have been the same reaction. I think Sheffield United fans are mad but Geordies, they’re absolutely off their nut them.
“Passionate, aren’t they? Really passionate. You’ve seen them tonight when they’ve gone 2-0 up.
“Brilliant. Supporting the team, supporting Steve, so I’m not taking anything away from Steve’s performance.”
The team gave the travelling support something to cheer about with the 2-0 win that takes us up to 11th.
After an awful effort at Villa 2 weeks ago, the lads did brilliantly to make sure their performance matched the quality of support that we take to every away match, come rain or shine.
Hats off to our travelling fans who were loud the whole match on a cold Thursday night in Sheffield.
