Wilson answers critics to leave Blades on the brink

When former Wednesday boss Danny Wilson was unveiled as the new United manager during the summer, the majority of blades fans disagreed with the decision.

We made our feelings felt through protest’s and radio phone-in shows but Kevin ‘tight pockets’ McCabe ensured us that he would bring success to Bramall lane in the coming seasons.

In the pre-season months Danny did well to keep on to key players like star youngster Maguire and Lowton while also keeping the highly-regarded Quinn at the club.

However it wasn’t all positive at Bramall Lane as even after agreeing a new contract with young prospect Jordan Slew, money at the top of the game showed its evil side with Slew departing to Premier League side Blackburn in a £1.1m deal

Despite this loss, Wilson didn’t panic bringing in Kevin McDonald and Lescinal Jean Francois who have both added an extra dimension to the team. Francois, who had already worked under Wilson at Swindon, knew how he liked see his teams play and really didn’t take long for his teammates to also learn Wilson’s ways.

After an opening day 2-0 victory away at Oldham, the Blades fans started to re-think the pre-season haste about Wilson. The fine start to the season continued with only a few slip-ups on the way and in January he was able to keep our key players at the club, which is truth was like a new signing in itself.

This help the supporters to get behind Danny and more believed he could be the man to take us straight back to the Championship.

A turning point was against Charlton in January when he got breakthrough with the fans who even started singing about him. Now he had the full backing of the fans and helped to strengthen this by bringing back James Beattie to the Lane, showing that he was preparing for the next level of football and the last promotion push.

With just two games left of the season, a sell-out home game against play-off chasing Stevenage, the teatime kick-off on sky, which has to be the perfect way for the fans to show their support and get behind the Blades.

Promotion is now in our sights, two wins and we are back in the Championship, an achievement we didn’t expect under Danny Wilson at the beginning of this season.
