Sheffield United fans have reacted to their win over 3-2 over Blackburn Rovers which sends the Blades to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-finals against Manchester City.
The Blades were looking to be crashing out of the FA Cup, with goals from Rovers’ Ben Brereton Diaz and Sam Szmodics which came at either side of an own goal by Sam Gallagher.
A late goal from Tommy Doyle however, crushed Blackburn’s chances of advancing in the competition, with Doyle’s 91st minute screamer booking Sheffield United a well deserved place in the semi-finals.
The Sheffield side will be without both Tommy Doyle and James McActee for the semi-final, with both of them being on loan from Manchester City, but the success of reaching the semi-finals has created a buzz in the Steel City.
However, the Blades are facing some financial problems as they have been placed under a transfer embargo after defaulting on payments for players.
Dozy Mmobuosi, a Nigerian businessman is trying to buy the club but questions have been raised over his finances. Now, according to the Mail, the Blades are on the brink of going into administration.
This would lead to a 12 point deduction, which would be a huge blow to their chances of going up.
United’s CEO Stephen Bettis has said these reports are not true.
Sheffield Wire spoke to Blades’ fans to see if the financial problems overshadowed the FA Cup triumph.
