Sheffield United fans were in for a good laugh this week when their club’s official Twitter account posted a hilarious video of Sander Berge and Billy Sharp. The video showed Sharp teaching the Blades’ new signing some local Sheffield slang.
The tutorial included slag terms such as ‘chuffed to bits’ and ‘si thi’. When fans saw the clip they responded by expressing their amusement.
I ?? this! So funny! ?

What would be more amusing to see?
Berge singing GCB
Sharp learning Norwegian
Two fans admit they would love nothing more than to hear Berge signing the famous Sheffield United chant, Greasy Chip Butty.

What do we think?
The Sheffield United fans are clearly taking to Berge quite quickly. At the end of the day, however, they won’t really care if he picks up the microphone and belts out one of their favourite songs.
They will be more concerned that, when he pulls on the Sheffield United jersey, he gives it his all.
The fact that he appears to be so happy in the video is just an extra victory that they will gladly take.
