Che must stay with the Blades

Losing your best players is always painful, frustrating and disheartening. So it would be a great shame if Sheffield United fans were feeling these emotions on transfer deadline day. Unfortunately, falling down the echelons of the English game has seen the Blades become a selling club. Promising talents come and go in a flash. And with Nigel Adkins planning to offload in January’s transfer window, any United supporter who has seen...

Blades require new tricks for Old Trafford trip

Sheffield United have deliberately built attacks through the middle of the pitch this season, benefitting Billy Sharp, who naturally prefers a ball into his feet rather than a cross from the wing. Admittedly, the untimely departure of Jamie Murphy may have had a considerable influence. In an FA Cup third round tie with Manchester United, however, exploiting the wings with pace is the Yorkshire side’s best chance of going toe-to-toe...

Super Che can be Blades’ star

After an unbeaten pre-season for Nigel Adkins’ men there was one man who stood out from the rest of the team – Che Adams. The Blades started their pre-season against Adams’ former team and Northern Evo-Stick outfit Ilkeston Town. Adams was part of the second team after the interval and looked in great shape as his monstrous prowess caused his former employers hell on the left side. He could have had at least three goals to...

Blades need to think twice about buying Billy

Recently the Blades have been linked with numerous strikers with Leeds United’s Billy Sharp at the top of that list. But the question is….. do we need him? Sharp has scored 53 goals in 82 games in League One and has a decent strike rate in the second tier so he certainly knows where the onion bag. Another positive is that Adkins is the manager who plays to Sharp’s strengths after the forward scored 64 goals in 109 games under the...
