Blades Ask For Owls' Help

Blades Ask For Owls' Help

Wednesday help United? Never...but that's the message from one Unitedite with Blades fans set to protest against their relegation from the Premiership in Sheffield tomorrow.

'Campaign For Justice' organiser Richard Batho has urged both fans from the red and white AND blue and white half of Sheffield to turn out in their numbers to protest about their relegation in the streets of Sheffield tomorrow in the slim hope they get re-instated to the top flight.

United fans and officials alike were left fuming that West Ham didn't get a points deduction in light of the 'Carlos Tevez affair'.

And with the Hammers grabbing an unlikely final day victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, courtesy of a Tevez strike of course, United's defeat at home to relegation rivals Wigan saw them drop back down to the Championship.

'Hopefully fans from both clubs - United and Wednesday - will turn out because this has the power to affect everyone,' Batho told the Sheffield Star.

'United supporters must attend in numbers but it would be great to think that everyone from the region, whether they follow us, will also lend us their backing.'

But Owls fans on the Vital Sheffield Wednesday forum are showing little sympathy to the Blades plight, safe to say that I doubt many will be turning up in their blue and white shirts tomorrow!

Forum member NicNac said: 'It was their safety to throw away and boy did they throw it! I can understand being upset, even angry at the whole situation. I'm sure if it happened to us, we'd feel more than a little aggrieved too. However it still stands that after a full season they didn't score enough goals to win (or draw) enough games to keep them safe from the drop. Now whose fault is that?'

And hellboy0628 said: 'They weren't good enough over a season regardless of what one player has done for another team Tevez hasn't single handedly relegated United or saved WHU, they wasted a ten point lead. I would be gutted if I was in their position but I would recognise that it was our own fault.'

Meanwhile a second group led by Blades fan Sean Bean and a number of other Unitedites will gather in London before being led into Parliament for a meeting with a small group of MPs.
