    The price of football tickets

    Everyone got paid, this is not a Bolton situation, this was two owners, one of whom was playing brinkmanship, but it didn't result in staff not being paid. Back to the match costs, I paid 450 quid, or thereabouts, for a season ticket in the south stand. I think pensioners are half that, so 225 pounds.
  3. Only the 5th, non-premier league manager to win the overall LMA title. Not a bad season for Chris Wilder, one he will never forget.
  4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48276413 Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has been named LMA manager of the year and Championship manager of the year. Wilder guided Sheffield United to a second-placed finish in the Championship table, securing promotion to the Premier League next season. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Norwich's Daniel Farke were also shortlisted for the main prize. Sir Alex Ferguson and England manager Gareth Southgate presented the award. Guardiola was named Premier League manager of the year after his Manchester City side finished a point above Liverpool to win back-to-back top-flight titles. Liverpool boss Klopp was shortlisted for that award too, alongside Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and Wolves' Nuno Espirito Santo. Lincoln's Danny Cowley won the League Two award and Luton's Mick Harford, who took over in mid-season for the remainder of the campaign, won the League One award. Tottenham's Karen Hills won the Women's Championship award after gaining promotion to the top tier, while Arsenal's Joe Montemurro picked up the Women's Super League prize after a title-winning season. Pat Godbold, who has been involved at Ipswich in various roles for 65 years, was given the LMA Service to Football award at the event in London.

    Stoke v Blades

    Great day out, Stoke are a proper club with proper fans. How they are not top 10 I will never know, played some good football and with pace. A few too many hangovers for the Blades lads but fair play to them for pulling off a draw. My favourite season and my favourite Blades team. UTB.

    Blades Transfer Rumours - 19/20

    We would get a discount, which amounts to the same thing I guess.

    Blades Transfer Rumours - 19/20

    Great, when people get promoted based on the form table, you will be fine. Villa are the form team, they still might not go up.

    Blades Transfer Rumours - 19/20

    Well, you wouldn't know I guess?

    For Sale - Top flight football club.

    Everything is up for sale, the club, the land, ground, the training facilities, everything. Everything is above board as well, no "Eleva8" sports drinks, no "D-Taxi", a cab company now based in Hong Kong and with no actual cars.

    Press speculation at the time, maybe, like Chris Wilder was going to Sunderland.........

    Blades Transfer Rumours - 19/20

    It's what some neutral supporters started calling the Blades on Twitter last week, after seeing Norwich team in suits and ties having a celebratory dinner, and then the Blades team all getting drunk like a gang of mates on a stag do. Just a good bunch of lads.

    Blades Transfer Rumours - 19/20

    Manchester Evening News already ran an article last week saying that Man Utd and Sheff Utd are in talks about another season loan. Deano himself is supposed to have told both managers that this is his preference, if he can't be on the bench for Man Utd, he wants to stay with The People's Champions, and who can blame him? Strong rumours that Chris Wilder has already held talks with a number of players, even before promotion, about joining "if we go up", Che Adams being one of them.

    BLADES memories

    My earliest memory, from around 69/70 was Mick Speight wearing boots with fluorescent stripes down the side, first ones I had ever seen, pestered my parents to get me some for Christmas (they did).
