Fans ask ‘am I seeing this right?’ as Sheff Utd supporter goes viral for casually reading a book during Newcastle match

A SHEFFIELD UTD fan has gone viral, after she was spotted in the stands reading a book.

The Blades were in action against Newcastle at Bramall Lane, although it was a game they would like to forget.

The home side were thrashed 8-0 by the visitors in a horror show for the recently promoted side.

And with just 15 minutes to go, it was too much to take for one supporter who took to reading her book instead of watching the game – with the score at 0-7.

That drew plenty of laughter on social media.

One wrote: “Am I seeing this right a Sheffield united fan has decided to read a book rather than watch the game.”

Another posted: “Nothing to see here just a Sheffield Utd fan casually reading a book while her team is being beat 7-0 by the mighty Newcastle United.”

A third shared: “NOT THE SHEFFIELD UTD FAN CRACKING OUT A BOOK DURING THE MATCH IM HOWLINGGGGG.”

While a fourth added: “The Sheffield Utd fan sat reading a book.”

Sheffield Utd’s start to the Premier League has been less than impressive.

They sit rock bottom after their latest display, and have lost five of their first six games.

In this latest display, they were 3-0 down at the break thanks to goals from Sean Longstaff, Dan Burn and Sven Botman.

After the break, Callum Wilson added a fourth, before Anthony Gordon got a deserved goal that his performance merited.

Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimaraes added a sixth and seventh, before Alexander Isak added the final eighth.

The win puts Newcastle up to 8th spot, but will leave Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom fighting for his job.
