Sheffield United fans react to tweet posted by Sheffield Wednesday's Lee Bullen after Aston Villa fightback

A fan and the police have words during the Sky Bet Championship fixture between Aston Villa and Sheffield United at Villa Park on February 8, 2019 in Birmingham, England.

The Sheffield Wednesday coach appeared to be on the wind-up after Sheffield United dropped points at Villa Park.

A tweet posted by the Sheffield Wednesday coach, Lee Bullen, shortly after Sheffield United's 3-3 draw at Aston Villa has reeled in several Blades fans.

Sheffield United were 3-0 up and coasting towards the top of the Championship until three goals from the 82nd minute onwards earned Aston Villa a point in front of their own fans.

 

The result kept the Blades in third position, but moved them 17 points clear of 16th-place Sheffield Wednesday, who do have two games in hand.

Nevertheless, some of a Sheffield United persuasion could not resist the urge to bite after Bullen tweeted - and subsequently deleted - a message containing only a tick:

Nearly as funny as getting ****** 4-2 at home on sky against your rivals you called ‘pub team’ for a whole 5 years

 

It is not the first time that Bullen appears to have gone fishing in Sheffield United waters.

Asked about Billy Sharp's comments on wanting Sheffield Wednesday to lose in the 2017 play-offs, so that the Blades could beat them twice the following season, the former Owls captain replied: 'Who?'

But Bullen will be all too aware of Sharp now, after the Sheffield United striker scored his 20th, 21st and 22nd goals of the season against Aston Villa.
