The Sheffield United striker, Billy Sharp, has exchanged tweets with the Sheffield Wednesday coach, Lee Bullen.

Sharp won moment of the season at the English Football League's end-of-year awards ceremony on Sunday evening, after scoring his 200th league goal earlier in the campaign.

 

Bullen later posted: "Forget rivalries.... this is an unbelievable achievement for any footballer".

And Sharp replied: "Thanks mate, topman".

Bullen has managed to rile several Sheffield United supporters with his Twitter activity throughout this season, but it is some of those of a Sheffield Wednesday persuasion who appear to have taken issue with the Scot's above message.

Here's how they're responding:

He’s a fat ****, delete this lol

 

CRAMPYYY‏ @DAVIDCRAMP Replying to @BullenFootball:

Sometimes it’s better to say nothing at all

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bullen and Sharp could have been teammates at Sheffield Wednesday, only for the latter to reject a move to Hillsborough in favour of a return to Sheffield United in 2007.

Sharp is now in his third and most successful spell at Bramall Lane, where he used to watch the Blades as a fan.

The 33-year-old has scored 23 Championship goals this season, putting Sheffield Wednesday's rivals in the driving seat for the division's final automatic promotion place.
