Former Blues Striker McGoldrick Released By Blades
Friday, 13th May 2022 21:26

Former Town striker David McGoldrick has been released by Sheffield United.

The 34-year-old joined the Blades after leaving Town in the summer of 2018 and enjoyed a hugely successful spell at Bramall Lane, helping them to promotion to the Premier League in 2018/19 and ninth in the top flight the following season.

The former Republic of Ireland international, who was with the Blues for the previous five and a half years, said his goodbyes on Instagram.

“All good things must come to a end and my time at SUFC has come 😢,” he wrote. “From coming on trial and winning promotion, winning Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season, Goal of Season, 10 goals in the Premier League and making friends for life, [it] has been nothing short of a fairytale.

“Your love and support from you fans that you have given me has never gone unnoticed and I will never forget it!

“The club and players (my brothers) are in good hands under Hecky [manager Paul Heckingbottom] and his staff and I’m confident this season will be be a happy ending for me ⚔️❤️ ”

In total, McGoldrick made 103 starts and 33 sub appearances for the Blades, scoring 30 goals.

Sheffield United host Nottingham Forest in their play-off semi-final first leg at Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon with McGoldrick not involved having missed the end of the season with a thigh injury.

I'd have him back on a pay by play deal in a heartbeat

As much as I love this guy we can’t afford to waste wages if he’s gonna struggle with his fitness a pay as you play maybe personally id rather Billy sharp

Probably one, if not the most talented player we had under Mick.

ringwoodblue added 22:38 - May 13
Last time I saw him play for Sheff Utd, he ran like he was in a three-legged race so I wouldn’t have him back.

Fat_Boy_Tim added 22:50 - May 13
We don't need another very talented forward player who struggles to score goals. You just know he'd be all Macauley Bonne from the second half of the season or McGoldrick from all his seasons in the Prem!

30 goals in a 136 games…. ! He’s 34yrs old NOW….. and someone says yes they’d have him back at Town…really?

Sick note

Quality player but he was languid enough in his younger days. How slow is he going to be now?

hyperbrit added 01:13 - May 14
still it's interesting to see how a fox in the box operates.

ThaiBlue added 05:01 - May 14
Would not touch him with a barge pole.he took the p#ss with injuries towards the end of his time at town went to sheffield united played most of his time there,so no.

Cakeman added 06:03 - May 14
No thanks. Never showed the heart for us as he has with The Blades. Was never the same player after we stopped him moving to Leicester.
As said by BeattiesBackPocket, would rather have Billy Sharp.

Saxonblue74 added 07:13 - May 14
Don't see him as a player with the correct attitude to drop down a league. At 34 he's one from the past and certainly not the future. Anyway, where does it mention a Portman Rd return in that article?!

gosblue added 07:31 - May 14
No way José. He didn’t appear to want to play for us full stop. He was constantly injured averaging less than 30 games a season, 22 league appearances in his last season at Ipswich. Then he moved to Sheff U and miraculously, he was able to play 45 league games in his first season. Yes he was one of the best talents here in recent years but i just don’t think he wanted to be here.

Dissboyitfc added 07:59 - May 14
I wouldn’t have him back in any shape or form! I could have seen it happening in Evans’s reign but thankfully not with the new regime, only players who want to give their all will get in!

Lombokblue added 08:07 - May 14
He said that Sheffield United were the only club to come in for him so he had to get fit and he looked stones lighter and played 40+ games in his first season

Murphys_Law added 08:21 - May 14
Great player, but look forward not backwards!

Lightningboy added 10:42 - May 14
Skilful player but he ran like an old granny last time he was here - let’s not go backwards.

reescurtis added 11:10 - May 14
At 34 hes not gonna play alot of 90 mins but if he we can get him as an impact player why not look at him he was never a runner but could split a defence up with a single touch tbh lets just trust the managers signings this summer, going to be exciting

runningout added 11:18 - May 14
not even a debate

braveblue added 12:13 - May 14
It’s a big no from me. We need to look forward, not back.

runningout added 12:57 - May 14

Marinersnose added 13:27 - May 14
He wouldn’t come back and neither should he. He is a fantastic talent and very clever but he is not the type of player we need. To clarify Leicester never even spoke to him or made a bid for him so that was media talk.

No thank you, forwards not backwards
