    Birminghmmm - Birmingham Recap, QPR Preview

    Birminghmmm - Birmingham Recap, QPR Preview

    Ben and Andrew give a quick recap of the Blades' struggling to a humdrum draw against Birmingham, although Oli McBurnie's 5th goal of the season and a return of Jayden Bogle prove to be bright spots in a dull game. Then, some brief thoughts on tomorrow night's game with QPR, and the end of Chris Wilder at Middlesbrough.

    Thanks for listening, and UTB!

    PNEasy - Preston Recap

    PNEasy - Preston Recap

    Ben and Andrew talk through the Blades' third consecutive away win as the Blades stay top courtesy of a 2-0 win at Preston North End that means United have now scored more goals at Deepdale than the home side. We discuss the value of United's extra star quality to win tight games, whether Ndiaye is the best player in the Championship (!), Double-hard Sander Berge, and a possible forthcoming conundrum over who should play right-wingback.

    We'll be back next week, enjoy the international break and thanks for listening - UTB!

    Follow The Reda - Swansea Recap, Preston Preview

    Ben and Andrew go through the Blades' latest win, a 1-0 victory at Swansea City, to cement their position at the top of the Championship. An Ahmedhodzic intervention keeps it level before the subs sink the Swans: Rhian Brewster and Reda Khadra providing a moment of quality. There's more praise for perpetual man-of-the-match candidate Rhys Norrington-Davies, Chris Basham playing on the left, and Swansea's slightly puzzling approach. Plus, a look ahead to our trip to Preston this weekend.

    Thanks for listening, and UTB!

    Tiger Kings - Hull Recap, Rotherham Preview

    Ben and Andrew break down United's first away win of the season, as the Blades take down the Tigers on their own patch in a 2-0 victory. Oli McBurnie makes it 3 in 3 before Sander "I'm not f'in leaving" Berge seals the deal. We also discuss the impressive Rhys Norrington-Davies, whether that corner routine needs throwing in the bin, Mark Duffy's punditry, Oliver Arblaster making his debut, and everything else that caught our eye from the win. Finally, we wrap up all the news from transfer deadline day, and preview Rotherham at home this weekend.

Ben Brighton Blade ,

Roy AKA Andrew is BladesPod

Love BladesPod. Ben is excellent. His guests are always informative and insightful but what differentiates the podcast from other Blades podcasts is Roy AKA Andrew. Absolute legend, speaks from the heart but manages to make sense and has a great sense of fairness and humour whilst analysing such an emotive subject, SUFC. He is a Blade on the terrace, not fuelled with complete negativity like ones we all know but one that has hope and stays realistic. Voice of the People ⚔️✊🏼
