Could have gone to one of 4 or 5 but Baxter just controlled everything from the middle and played some amazing passes.

Sammon for me.

Ran his socks off, held the ball up well and their defence struggled to cope with him all afternoon.

Also had a superb run and curling shot to the corner, which hit the post but deserved to go in.

voted for Sammon.

I thought I wouldn't like him but he's becoming indispensible. Beautiful performance today - seriously, great to watch.

Baxter was brilliant, Coutts had his best game for us, Kieron Wallace looked like he belonged in this team, but although Sharp was effin brilliant, I have to say Sammon edged it for me. UTB!

Agree that Coutts deserves a mention.....pretty much slagged off all last season and then gives his best Blades performance  :ok:

Obviously I wasn't there, but I would nominate Nigel Adkins as MOM for dropping Woolford, and keeping him on the bench.

MoM for me was Sammon - chased everything won most of it, tireless!

Gotta say, for the first one, this was a difficult one for me - so many worthy contenders - in the running;

Alcock - but only played half a game so struggled to justify it - could also be that I was relieved to see him have a good game

Wallace - looked infinitely better than anyone who's played LB this season

Basham - being Captain suited him - took his goal well and I'm really starting to like the Basham/Baxter combination in the middle

Sammon - Would have been very easy to give it to him and I can understand why others have picked him. Probably his best game for us so far, but with the chances he had I'd like to have seen him score more than 1. Plus when he had Billy screaming for it in the middle after an attempt was blocked he lost composure and we missed out on another opportunity!

Sharp - ran none stop - his goal was gifted really, but he still had to make it to the ball before the keeper and then kept his composure with defenders on the line (can't remember if it was 1 or 2). Far too good for this league and showing the form we all wanted him to have the first time he was here.   

Plus of course the one I gave it to........
