It’s been quite the season for Sheffield United’s Billy Sharp. He’s one of the top goal scorers in the Championship and stands a fantastic chance of leading his side to promotion to the Premier League.
But he’s picked up another accolade, winning the Moment of the Season at the EFL awards for when the Blade reached a record-breaking 220th English league goal this term.

Praise from Sheffield United fans came flooding in as one individual was quick to call the 33-year-old a legend. Others claimed it was well deserved whilst one supporter suggested it was the only moment the award could go to.
The Blades are currently second in the Championship as the promotion race continues to ebb and flow.
Sharp has contributed 23 goals to his team’s efforts in 2018/19.
Here’s what supporters have been saying about him.
