2007-2008 review - November

Last updated : 29 May 2008 By Jamie Furniss
Their were 88 minutes of the most boring football you could ever watch, but that was sparked up in the 89th minute when James Beattie thumped his header in at the back post but that was ruled out for a foul.

Replays showed that the goal should have stood but referee and linesman ruled it out because they thought that Beattie was climbing over villain David Unsworth. A Penalty appeal for the Blades occurred in the minutes added on as old boy David Unsworth was climbing all over Beattie but ref Beeby waved away.

That dull start led the Blades to a comfortable victory against Ipswich Town on a chilly Tuesday night. A brace from James Beattie and a top corner top-poker from Keith Gillespie ensured the Blades took all three points off the Tractor Boys in a 3:1 victory. Jonathan Walters got the only goal for the Suffolk side.

The Sky Sports cameras followed the Blades to the Brittania Stadium. Dronfield born Gary Cahill who was on-loan from Aston Villa at the time scored the only goal of the game on the 43 minute mark.

Peter Halmosi scored the only goal when managerless Plymouth Argyle came to town. They ran out 1:0 winners over the Blades at Bramall Lane.

Then, what a way to round off the month. The Blades ran riot in London as goals from James Beattie (pen), Gary Cahill and Chris Armstrong earned the Blades a delightful three points against Charlton Athletic at The Valley.
