Billy Sharp has had quite the season. At 33 years of age, he’s vying for a place in the Premier League with Sheffield United, is second top scorer in the Championship and has now been nominated for a major award.
He was fortunate enough to be named among the Championship Team of the Year released this week and was further nominated for the Player of the Year award.
But he wasn’t the only Blades star to receive recognition as Oliver Norwood was part of the 11 names to make the Team of the Year too.
Reacting on Twitter, Sheffield United fans were quite rightly buzzing with their inclusions.
One supporter claimed Norwood is the one who had made the team stick this season whilst another individual suggested Sharp is like a fine wine and has been playing like a man ten years his junior.
Who would make a combined Sheffield XI? Ingood Nick makes his picks in the video below…
Here’s what Sheffield United fans have been saying about the pair.
Billy Sharp is 33 but is playing like he’s 10 years younger. He’s like a fine wine he gets better with age.
