2007-2008 review - February

Last updated : 01 June 2008 By Jamie Furniss
First blood was drew to United when Luton Shelton put the Blades in front. His superb curler flew past Dean Gerken in the U's goal just before half time.

Kevin Lisbie made the scoreline level soon as play resumed after the break. Jackson put Colchester in front but that was ruled out by David Carney two minutes later.

A shameful 0:0 draw with ten man Scunthorpe United at Bramall Lane was followed by a car park protest by Blades fans chanting 'Robson out' for at least a couple of hours.

Yet another draw this time against West Brom at The Hawthorns saw Robson a couple of days after get the sack. He got the boot from McCabe after a dissapointing season which saw the appointment of former United assistant manager Kevin Blackwell.

His start to his rein saw a televised 0:0 draw with premiership outfit Middlesbrough in the 5th round of the FA Cup. That was follwed by a 6th consecutive draw. 1:1 was the final scoreline at Loftus Road with Chris Morgan scoring the only goal for the Blades.

90 minutes couldn't settle the scoreline against Boro again televised in the 5th round replay at The Riverside Stadium with the score locked at 0:0. A very unlucky own goal by Paddy Kenny on 114 minutes saw the Blades exit the competition. When he saw it bounce off the post and onto his hand and then trickle over the line he laid on the goaline thinking the ground would come up and swallow him.
