    Best & Worst of 2019/20: BladesPod Season Awards

    Best & Worst of 2019/20: BladesPod Season Awards

    Ben and Andrew look back on the 2019/20 season for Sheffield United, and give out their awards for the best and worst players, moments, performances, pundits, surprises, signings, goals and more. Plus, every team in the Premier League summarised in a single word, and finally a revisiting of our preseason predictions from last summer (some of which have not aged well).

    Thanks as always for listening, and UTB!

    Southampton & Reflections on the 2019/20 season

    Southampton & Reflections on the 2019/20 season

    Ben and Andrew tick off the final game of the 2019/20 campaign and reflect on the season as a whole as the Blades finish 9th in their first year back in the Premier League. There's some love for Leon, respect for Redmond, chiding for Che, and some other non-alliterative thoughts too - plus, we attempt to pick a few players from the three relegated sides that we'd realistically like the Blades to try and sign.

    Thank you for listening to this episode, and right the way through the season. Couldn't do it without you!

    Finally, as mentioned in this episode: Blades fan James Kemp has been cycling to every away game this season to raise money for the Children's Hospital Charity - and you can still donate! He has already smashed his £10,000 target but that's no reason to stop now - amazing effort by James, here is the link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/james-kemp1889

    Everton reaction, Henderson & Mousset's future, and is anyone else going to mention Hawkeye?

    Everton reaction, Henderson & Mousset's future, and is anyone else going to mention Hawkeye?

    The Blades' hopes of Europe finally come to an end in the 37th game of the season (!) - Ben and Andrew react to a disappointing game with Everton, plus discuss the signing of Will Foderingham and what it means for the future of Dean Henderson, the Lys Mousset situation and general lack of squad depth in attack, George Baldock vs Luca Digne Pt 2, a pressure-free trip to Southampton on Sunday, and ponder whether anyone outside of S2 is going to mention Hawkeye's ghost goal ever again?

    Thanks as always for listening, and UTB!

    Wilder gets stuck in as Blades outfought and outfoxed by Leicester

    Wilder gets stuck in as Blades outfought and outfoxed by Leicester

    Ben and Andrew react to not only United's disappointing showing against Leicester, but also Wilder's no-holds-barred post-match fury, our respect for Jamie Vardy, a dominant performance from Wilfried Ndidi, and a thank-god-for-that effort from Dean Henderson in goal. Finally, a look at the permutations for the rest of the season, not only for United but also which teams we think will go down - and which ones we want to.

    Thanks for listening, and UTB!

    David McGoldrick Appreciation Hour: Blades 3-0 Chelsea

    David McGoldrick Appreciation Hour: Blades 3-0 Chelsea

    The McGoalDrought is OVER! Ben and Andrew attempt to do justice to one of the best results in United's modern history, and the performance that went with it... plus a ton of appreciation for that man, David McGoldrick, breaking his duck and then adding another one for good measure. Also discussed: the tactical battle between Wilder and Lampard, Jorginho getting sent for a Bovril, Hendo's towering header, plus a look ahead to Leicester later this week.

    Thanks for listening, and UTB!

    Egan Again - United 1-0 Wolves

    Egan Again - United 1-0 Wolves

    Ben and Andrew react to United's dramatic last-minute win over Wolves to round off a fantastic 6 days for the Blades. We pick out some key performers, discuss Wolves' second half record (apparently it's quite good?), the job done on Adama Traore, Osborn's nonstop energy, a good cameo from Zivkovic, football played in the right spirit, and of course that towering header by John Egan from Cork. Finally, a few words ahead of the Chelsea game at the weekend.

    Thanks as always for listening, and UTB!
