Sheffield United take ‘limbs’ to new level with viewers convinced fan falls from top tier

Sheffield United take ‘limbs’ to a new level with viewers convinced that a fan falls from the top tier of the away end at QPR on Friday.

Footage has emerged of highlights from the Championship clash, though this time with cameras right next to the travelling support capturing the emotions.

The Blades took a step closer to securing their place in the Championship playoffs after coming from behind to beat the West London outfit 3-1.

However during one of the goals, a Sheffield United supporter is seen jumping over the advertising board and tries to celebrate on the pitch, only for another member of the Blades fanbase to come out of nowhere and land literally on his head. Check out the video below…

The moment came after Sheffield United came out re-energised after half time, going close on several occasions before Iliman Ndiaye levelled from close-range following some pinball action in the QPR box, cancelling out Charlie Austin’s opener.

The visitors continued to dominate and went on to take the lead through former R’s defender Jack Robinson when he sent the ball in with a header from a clever free-kick routine.

The in 94th minute, the three points was confirmed with Hourihane hitting home on the volley after superb work from Norway international midfielder Sander Berge.

QPR’s Mark Warburton: “They stepped up a level in the second half and had real quality about them. I thought we started the second half as we did the first; gave the ball away cheaply. We then got into the game, moved the ball better and looked a better team. Second half, we wanted to come out and take care of the football, but we didn’t do that. There were a lot of players in the side with Premier League experience and when they stepped it up a level, we didn’t match that.

“It [the reception from the fans] meant a lot. It’s not about ego or any of that nonsense, it’s purely about the fact that those fans have been very supportive. The backing has been outstanding and some of the comments, individually, from the fans has been nice and pleasant to hear because you get enough abuse at times, that’s for sure!

“But the fans here have been first class. I mentioned my appreciation of the support they have given over that three-year period and I hope tonight they saw that was a genuine thank you from me to them for all of that backing.”

Sheffield United’s Paul Heckingbottom: “We probably made it difficult, but I thought we were good all game and fantastic in the second half. By half-time, there were not enough shots, not enough of a killer instinct. They got in our box twice, got two efforts on goal and one of them was a goal. Same old message; we don’t want to be a pretty team that don’t win. In the second half, we did everything right, probably.

“It was a simple half-time team talk because you could see what was wrong. To be honest, the boys have responded every time – they have been great. But when you are so close [to the play-offs] it means more and when it is something as simple as that, for me, the game will never change. What you do between the boxes is the most important thing.

“Day out with the wife tomorrow! We’ve done our bit, but it’s the same all along. You can get lost in looking at results, fixtures and who plays who and try and guess what’s going to happen, but we’ll relax this weekend and start again on Monday.”
