Aaron Ramsdale underlines Sheffield United roots with cryptic message amid Sheffield Wednesday loss



Sheffield Wednesday hearts were broken last night in the League One play-offs, as Sunderland progressed to Wembley at their expense. 

It was advantage Sunderland heading into last night’s clash after Ross Stewart’s goal in the first leg.

Lee Gregory managed to haul Wednesday level heading into the final quarter during a sustained period of pressure from Darren Moore’s side.

However, Patrick Roberts had the final say in injury time, converting Jack Clarke’s cross to send Alex Neil to Wembley.

The eyes of the footballing world were on Hillsborough last night given the magnitude of the clubs involved.

Included in that was Arsenal goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, who simply tweeted the word “whoops” just as Sunderland’s place in the League One play-off final was confirmed.

For context, Ramsdale was with Sheffield United – Wednesday’s city rivals – right at the start of his career, progressing through the Blades’ academy.

He moved onto AFC Bournemouth in 2017 and then returned to Sheffield United in 2020/21 for a season before moving onto Arsenal.

Who did the club sign Marvin Johnson from?

Wednesday will now turn their attention to building for a second season in League One under Moore following last night’s heartbreak.

The Verdict 

Ramsdale has become known for this type of tongue-in-cheek ‘banter’ when it comes to social media.

He was quick to pick up on Wednesday’s misfortune, underlining his Sheffield United roots in the process.

In fairness, he wasn’t alone in doing so, with the #twitterblades on Twitter seeing plenty of Sheffield United fans revelling in Roberts’ goal.
