‘Work Rate Is Incredible’ ‘Class Act’ – Sheffield United Fans Hail Impact Of Freebie Striker

There was some scepticism after Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick was signed on a free transfer in the summer.

The 30-year-old was released by Ipswich at the end of last season, but since his arrival at Bramall Lane, he has performed very well for Chris Wilder’s side.

His late winner against Preston at the weekend capped what was a man of the match display, and fans on Twitter heaped praise on the Irish international’s start to life at the club:

Not only did McGoldrick score, but he set up the opening goal for Billy Sharp in the 3-2 win on Saturday. He has started three of the last four games, keeping Leon Clarke on the bench for the most part since the no.9’s return from injury.

Although not a prolific goalscorer, his work rate alongside a natural finisher like Billy Sharp has given the frontline an added edge for the Blades.
