Sheffield United sealed promotion last weekend with a 2-o home win against Ipswich to snatch second spot from Leeds.
The Blades head to Stoke City today knowing a win could see them win the title if Norwich lose at Aston Villa, and Blades fans everywhere will be desperate for their promotion heroes to cap off a memorable season with the Championship trophy.
Last season was a good one for United too as they roared back to the second tier to finish 10th on their return from six years in League One, and key man Billy Sharp has continued his fine form of last year to lead the goalscoring charts for his club once more this time around.
A winning finish to the season last year would be much appreciated by United fans today, and looking at the reaction from skipper Billy Sharp and fans, it looks as if everyone within the club took great heart and used it as motivation for this term.
Nice to finish the season off with 3 points ,3 very well taken goals and overall brilliant 1st season back In the championship,time now to recover to get ready to go again next season,big thankyou to all the fans for his seasons support #UTB ????⚪️⚫️⚔️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/puXHJ2Cxq2

With that then, we took a look at just what fans had to say in response to Sharp’s tweet following the end of the campaign, and it’s safe to say United fans got their wish on all fronts…

Well done Captain, push the boys and keep working hard. Let's move the club back into the PL, with Chris in charge surely this will happen soon, providing he gets the backing from the board. Great season, well done to all involved. #mindthegap
