Sheffield United fan punches group of men at train station; Blades fan falls out of stand at Spurs

A Sheffield United fan punches a group of men at a train station; and separately a Blades fan falls out of a stand at Spurs.

Footage has been posted this weekend, showing an incident which occurred on a platform at a station, with a fan wearing a Sheffield United shirt throwing his fist at the males.

He ended up knocking one over, off the platform onto the tracks, then goes for all the others within the group, all while another male is calling his name trying to calm him down.

The clip has since been uploaded online and got over two million views…

Meanwhile, another clip has emerged of a different Sheffield United fan, this time captured by the BBC cameras on Match of the Day, falling out of a stand and down a Tottenham pride flag, with quite some drop below him.

Nick Waymouth @WaymouthNick, claimed: “He was next to me. Went flying over barrier and fell another 15ft to floor. Got up and got straight back into stand. 🤣🤣

Nick Cutmore @nickcutmore85 also replied: “He was fine. I saw him at the game… he got up and then hugged a steward who was under that flag. He then walked back to his seat

The game itself saw Spurs produce an incredible stoppage-time win over Sheffield United, just as it looked as though they were going to lose.

Gustavo Hamer put the Blades in front with a second-half goal, however Richarlison, who recently admitted he was struggling with his mental health, headed in an equaliser in eighth minute of stoppage-time. Dejan Kulusevski then fired in winner two minutes later.

Player of the match: Richarlison.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou, speaking to MOTD, said: “There’s some real resilience and spirit within that group already which is great to see because they are a relatively new group.

“And you get tested on days like this. It helps fuel belief for us to grow and our supporters have had an unforgettable day and all those things help in what we are trying to do.”

On Richarlison’s impact in scoring one and setting up the other after a week in which the Brazilian admitted he needed to seek help for off-field struggles: “We’ve got to maintain a balance in life and even for him, he needs to understand his football is still good, he’s a fantastic footballer, he’s got so much to give and that can help ease the burden he’s feeling in other parts of his life, like so many of us.

“I’m really pleased for him – I thought he did really well. We were obviously chasing a goal and getting some balls in the box and he’s always a threat in the air.”

Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom on how the game unfolded: “It was an appalling game the way it was managed. I know Spurs won the football match but I was saying the same thing at 0-0. At half-time I came to see the referee, when we were 1-0 I was saying the same things.

“The referees are dictating to our goalkeeper how we play. You see from minute one we split, Spurs adjust what they do so we have to adjust again. All of a sudden our keeper is booked for handling outside and he’s told he’s going to get another yellow if he doesn’t play the ball.

“But we have to wait and see how Spurs are going to stop us playing out before he can make a decision. They don’t understand what I’m saying to them and they’re refereeing a game in the top flight. Peter Banks’ a good guy, but this is nothing new. It’s sad.

“Wes (Foderingham) got jumped into by a player who turned his back and led with his elbow, stitches. Deemed the same offence by the referee as Ollie McBurnie saying someone is pulling his shirt. Where are we going? Where are we going? It’s tough for me, we all love the game but the people who know the least about football are directing where the game is going. And that’s what I can’t take.”Crazy. Absolutely barmy, but we’re letting these guys run our game and we need to stop them.”

Meanwhile, Sheffield United and Tottenham have both condemned the racist and abusive messages which was sent to Blades keeper Wes Foderingham after their game.

“I don’t mind opposition fans calling me every name under the sun,” wrote Foderingham on social media.

“But be easy with the racism and family threats. Think before you type.”

SUFC tweeted: Sheffield United condemn the racist, abusive and threatening messages that have been sent to Wes Foderingham after yesterday’s game against Spurs.

The club will now work with relevant bodies to investigate and support Wes.

There is no room for racism in our game.

Tottenham add: “We are disgusted to hear of racist, abusive and threatening messages sent to Wes Foderingham following yesterday’s match.

“The Club stands firmly against all forms of discrimination and will cooperate fully with Sheffield United and the relevant bodies in their investigations.

“We shall not hesitate in taking the strongest possible action, including Club bans, against any so-called fan found responsible.”
