Poor Sheffield United. As if being pipped to automatic promotion by local rivals Sheffield Wednesday wasn't bad enough.
As if seeing former manager Neil Warnock lead QPR to promotion last year whilst the Blades slipped down into the third tier of English football wasn't a hard enough blow.
As if seeing the former club of Alan Curbishley, the man who was at the helm during West Ham's great escape, romp away with the division this season wasn't a big enough kick in the teeth!
As if having their leading scorer sent to prison for rape wasn't a big enough punch in the nuts.
As if seeing West Ham, the team who unfairly relegated Sheffield United by winning every game with just Tevez on the pitch, promoted via the play offs wasn't a bad enough blow...
Fate had to deliver one, last, savage blow beneath the belt, with poor, poor, poor, poor, poor Sheffield United losing 8-7 on penalties to Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town.
Dear God, anybody would think that Sheffield United had done something terrible to deserve all this misfortune. Anybody would think Fate was dealing out some form of divine justice, that for some, inexplicable reason, the poor Blades were getting their just deserts.
Now I wonder why that might be? I wonder. I wonder.
It's almost as if in her thirst for retribution, Fate is determined to see the full monty!
