Several Sheffield United fans have been waxing lyrical about Chris Basham on social media recently.
The 31-year-old has risen through the divisions with the club. He initially joined them back in 2014 and he played a key role in them winning the League One title in the 2016/17 campaign, starting 42 matches (Transfermarkt).
He then made the step up to the Championship and once again was a regular as they won promotion to the top flight last season, starting 39 of their 46 games (Transfermarkt).
The centre-back continues to be a key member of Chris Wilder’s side in the Premier League and has started each of their 14 league fixtures so far (Transfermarkt).
Having endured some struggles initially, particularly under Nigel Adkins when they slumped to an 11th place finish in League One, Basham has gone on to be an integral part of some of the best campaigns in recent history for Sheffield United.
As a result of that, he has become a firm fans favourite at Bramall Lane and quite a few supporters have been singing his praises on Twitter this week.
They suggest that the centre-back is a club legend and someone about whom not a bad word can be said. Here are some of the comments made about Basham on Twitter…
Totally agree. Bash is the epitome of hard work paying off. ⚔️🔴⚪️⚔️

He’s a managers dream. The type that don’t come around too often these days

Basham keeps stepping up when people doubt him. He was there in the dark days with us and like the club he’s transformed over the last few years. A club legend and that day when he eventually loses his first team place I hope we still keep him around the club

He’s an absolute smashing bloke too

Not heard many negatives on Bash. I admit to thinking he might get caught out in Champ, let alone Prem. The guy is immense and always happy to stop and speak.
