Sheffield United fans reacted with joy as their team secured promotion back to the Premier League, following their 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.
It was a great display from United, who kept their heads throughout the contest. In the end, their goals were scored by Sander Berge and Anel Ahmedhodzic.
However, some fans displayed a lack of uncertainty for the future. While they were elated at the Blades’ promotion, they also believe that they will likely get relegated next season.
That's how you do it Blades fans. A touch of class. Letting the lads that got us there celebrate on the pitch. Best fans in the world!

My near 40 years of supporting Sheffield United Football Clubs has involved quite a lot of misery.
The young un, on the other hand, has in seven years as a Blade seen three promotions, two seasons in the Premier League and an FA Cup Semi Final.

Most were simply happy to take in the moment, rather than fretting over what may happen in the future. It was a great day to be a Sheffield United, and one that they will not forget any time soon.
Regardless, planning for next season must be done swiftly. The Premier League takes no prisoners – without stylistic changes and shrewd player recruitment, the Blades could be in for a tough season next year.
With that being said, Paul Heckingbottom has proven he has what it takes to build a winning team. United have momentum on their side – which is something they could carry with them into the Premier League.
