Q: What have you made of your team’s start to the season?

A: A fantastic season and one that we fully deserve. Chris Wilder has transformed us into the stand-out team in the division and I feel we're worthy league leaders.

Q: What are your opinions on your manager?

A: One of the best manager's we've had in years. So tactically astute and very attack-minded, as well as not being daft when it comes to setting teams up to defend - big, big fan!
