Some of a Sheffield United persuasion were hoping for a Sheffield Wednesday win on Saturday.
A Sheffield United supporter is being mocked by Sheffield Wednesday fans – and some of his fellow Blades – over a comment he made on live television ahead of the Owls’ defeat at Leeds United on Saturday.
Sheffield United had just dropped two points in the race for automatic promotion, letting slip a 1-0 lead to draw 1-1 with Millwall at Bramall Lane.
And although the result moved Chris Wilder’s side temporarily above Leeds and into second place, the Blades still required a favour from their fiercest rivals later that day to keep them there.
For the first time in many of their lives, Unitedites found themselves crossing their digits for a Sheffield Wednesday win.
But one of them appears to have gone too far after repeating the popular Owls fan saying: ‘We’re all Wednesday, aren’t we?’ And, if he’s reading this, he’ll perhaps want to look away now.
This is what those of a Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United persuasion are saying about his perceived faux pas…

Sheffield Wednesday remain six points adrift of the play-off spots but still have sixth-placed Bristol City to play.
Should the Owls break into the top-six, it is likely they would play either Sheffield United or Leeds at the semi-final stage.
