Enda Stevens talks about the Sheffield United team-mates before running in

The Blades are currently sixth and remain there in seventh place over a two-point gap between themselves and Blackburn. They did exceptionally well […] (Author: Gardener)

Enda StevensSheffield United have their sights set on a place in the playoffs this season - and with five games to go there's still a chance of clinching one of those top six spots. The Blades are currently sixth and remain there in seventh place over a two-point gap between themselves and Blackburn. Now, Enda Stevens has revealed to The Star how influential each member of the current United squad has been - even those who haven't been able to make all that regular appearances. Stevens easily falls into that category as the 31-year-old is often a first-team regular but an injury is hampering his ability to play too often this season. However, he still has 17 league games and three assists from his place on the left and remains a very capable player at this level. He's not the only name who hasn't always been part of the matchday squad - but the player himself has admitted that even those not in and around the starting XI have been key in creating a mentality that has the Blades back in the premier league could see league soon. It's not just about the guys who are actually on the pitch at a game. Stevens then believes that spirit of being able to support each other even when they're not getting minutes on the field has seen the side gain form this season and continue up the table. Now, with just five games left, that work has almost paid off. Enda Stevens remains a solid player for Sheffield United and his performances when he took the field for Blades showed just that. He just hasn't been able to get onto the field as much as he probably would have liked - but there have been plenty of substitutes for the player and everyone on that squad seems to be pulling their weight and helping in some way with that they can. This has resulted in the team moving up the table and at times the playoffs didn't even seem possible - now that everyone is pulling together the dream is a reality. There's still work to be done, but everything they've done so far has seen them settle comfortably in the top 6 as of today. You still have a chance to lose points, just as you still have a chance to shoot even higher. However, as long as they stay in those play-offs at the end of the season, that's all that matters to everyone involved at Bramall Lane.


Missed Chris Basham's desperation, Del Boy and full-time reaction among Sheffield United moments

The Blades drew 1-1 at Ashton Gate yesterday, with both goals coming in the second half (Author: Gardener)

Chris BashamSheffield United missed a chance to put real daylight between them and the pursuit in the race for a play-off spot. A goal at each end saw both teams settle for a point in a game United hoped to come out of with all three. Morgan Gibbs-White forcefully neutralized Chris Martin's opener ahead of the away game to ensure the Blades returned with some of the loot. The result leaves United in sixth place and with just three games left, the fate is in their own hands. Here are some of the Sheffield United moments you might have missed yesterday. READ MORE: Sheffield United last injured at Billy Sharp, Oli McBurnie and George Baldock There was one particularly raging run that caught the fans' attention when it landed on the left wing! However, he literally could not watch as the home side scored the first goal in the 49th minute. A quick punt down the field from goalkeeper Dan Bentley gave Antoine Semenyo something to pursue in a race between the speedy striker and the United defender. However, it was the City man who slapped Basham for the ball and then put it on a plate for Chris Martin to slide home. As Basham walked back to his position ready for the break, he looked at the big screen showing the replay and at the point where Semenyo defeated him he just looked despairingly at the sky. Chris Basham sinks to his knees after the final whistle as United are beaten by Bristol City. In stoppage time, United had everyone in City half-pressing for a win when the final whistle blew. Basham was one of three players to fall to the ground, disappointed they hadn't picked up a win and knowing they had missed a huge opportunity. Overlooking Ashton Gate stadium was a block of flats that was probably the most famous on British television. The skyscrapers used in Only Fools and Horses tower over the top of Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol City. Leading up to kick-off, the music was cranked up a notch to get the atmosphere going, but Sheffield United fans saw the funny side of one of their anthems. 'Hi Ho Silver Lining' blared through the speakers and much to the amusement of the United fans they booed, the song being associated with their rivals across town in S6. George Baldock was well received by United fans when he was substituted. The right-back went down in the 81st minute with a muscle injury and was replaced by Ben Osborn. Heckingbottom must be fed up with the sight of his injury list showing no signs of easing. He later admitted Baldock's injury was "worrying" and now hopes it's nothing serious. As Baldock went down, United kicked his away fans and trotted back to the dressing room, skirting the outside of the pitch and was greeted magnificently by the support, which he responded to with a clapping. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand how badly Billy Sharp's injury has hurt Sheffield United's play-off hopes. He would have liked to play in yesterday's game with the amount of chances and crosses into the six-yard box that begged. There was one moment in the half hour in particular that made it clear just how big his failure is. Gibbs-White threw an inviting ball over the goal but there was nobody there to knock home. Youngster Iliman Ndiaye, so often a No10, was asked to play as a forward rather than a frontman but stood on the edge of the box and had failed to respond to Gibbs-White's intentions. Both Gibbs-White and Ndiaye tend to want to drop out of the box and take up space on the edge of the box rather than having that goalscorer's natural instinct to get between the posts. Had Billy been there, United would not have been in sight before half-time yesterday. Enda Stevens will have been delighted to see his name on the Sheffield United team sheet in recent weeks. The Republic of Ireland international missed much of the season through injury but has recently returned. Bristol City had referred to him as Edna rather than Enda.


Sheffield United 1: The Reds lift the trophy in style

Liverpool's front three stalks, Kiernan and Lawley led the way as the Reds ran wild before lifting the league trophy in front of fans at Prenton Park (Author: Gardener)

RedsAll that was left was to lift the trophy for the Liverpool women's team as champions of the FA Women's Championship. Yana Daniels provided width at right-back while Razza Roberts tucked in at center-back. Bo Kearns and Rachel Furness formed the midfield pair, while Leanne Kiernan and Melissa Lawley played as wingers with Katie Stengel in the middle. Niamh Fahey led the team onto the field to an honor guard provided by Sheffield United. It was a dream start for the Reds when Katie Stengel was passed through in the middle in the third minute. Melissa Lawley carried the ball down the middle and pulled the defenders towards her before releasing the ball for Stengel to run onto before the American coolly slapped the ball over the advancing keeper to give Liverpool a 1-0 lead bring! Mel Lawley proved a handful early in the game, recapturing the ball with a high pressing and then earning a free-kick just outside the Sheffield United penalty area in the eighth minute. The free-kick hit the wall and bounced off a Liverpool throw-in. Liverpool doubled the score in the 14th minute with a wonderful team movement, starting with Rachel Laws. The keeper played the ball to Katie Stengel, who chested the ball down under pressure and played it wide to Yana Daniels. The full-back played a magnificent ball down the right wing to Melissa Lawley, who ran at full speed on the ball and played a superb first ball over the goal wall to meet Leanne Kiernan's run at the far post. Missy Bo Kearns almost scored a third goal after being set up in the center of the box by Katie Stengel. The scouser hit a first shot with good power, but it was too close to the keeper. There was a scary moment after 30 minutes of play when Lara Miller flew over the billboard and into the front row of seats as she tried to chase a ball that went wide. She lay there for a few minutes but was eventually able to get up and play again. Katie Stengel took a hit on the noggin in the 40th minute and lay down for a moment. She could step back the pitch to continue a few moments after checking out. Melissa Lawley would have completed a hat trick with assists just before the end of the first half. She made a labyrinthine run down the left channel and put the ball in the box near the end line. She whipped in a driven cross that easily distracted the keeper and narrowly avoided Yana Daniels' attempt to slip off the back post. Liverpool looked to win the second half in spectacular fashion, working the ball down the left flank to Katie Stengel from kick-off. The forward sent a low ball over the goal and it dodged just as Stengel tried to play a wide pass to Taylor Hinds, but he was deflected off a defender straight into Leanne Kiernan's run. The striker charged the ball forward down the left side of the box and crossed it over the goal, this time catching the run of Melissa Lawley who found the net just two minutes into the second half! Players all walked over the celebrations with manager Matt Beard, whose father passed away just a few days ago. Leanne Kiernan again showed off her work pace and electric pace down the left side. Katie Stengel dropped low to receive a ball and played it wide to Kiernan, who flew past a defender and got to the end line before aiming it over the goal. Unfortunately none of the Liverpool players got the ball and Sheffield United managed to crawl the ball away. Matt Beard went on his bench in the 65th minute and brought on Charlotte Wardlaw and Ceri Holland for Leanne Kiernan and Rachel Furness. Wardlaw switched to right-back while Yana Daniels transitioned to a wide forward role. Liverpool netted a fourth just moments after the substitutions. Ceri Holland played an easy pass to Yana Daniels far to her right and the Belgium international played a cross which was met by Katie Stengel in the middle of the box to touch past the keeper! Rachael Laws was called into action when former Liverpool player Courtney Sweetman-Kirk sent a sweet volley from just outside the box towards the far corner of the net. Liverpool made two more substitutions in the 73rd minute. Niamh Fahey went down in significant pain in the 75th minute, holding on to her lower back after what appeared to be a harmless sequence. After being treated for a few minutes, she left the field. Sheffield United took a free-kick before they could get back into the fray and the looping ball was guided past Rachael Laws for the consolation goal. Liverpool roared back with a fifth goal just minutes after conceding. Melissa Lawley sent in a first cross from the right and tried to add a third assist. Ceri Holland fired the cross off the bar and the rebound came back to Katie Stengel. Instead of shooting herself, she sliced ​​the ball back, letting a defender slide past her, then calmly played the ball back to Bo Kearns. The Scouser didn't give the keeper a chance this time when she hammered the ball narrowly into the near post! Liverpool made their last substitution, bringing in Jade Bailey for goalscorer Missy Bo Kearns. Megan Campbell sent a corner kick deep into the far post where Ceri Holland was there to head it back over the goal. Liverpool came close to scoring a seventh goal with multiple apple bites. Katie Stengel sliced ​​in a cross which was met by Jasmine Matthews with a dive header. The ball was saved well but the rebound got to Jade Bailey who saw her shot blocked on the way to goal. Now all that was left was for the team to receive their winners' medals and lift the FA Women's Championship trophy aloft. Captain Niamh Fahey tapped her teammates before lifting the trophy for all to see! Liverpool are set to travel to Lewes next weekend for their final game of the season.


Millwall managers as Lions, Boro, Sheffield United and Luton in play-off contention

THE Lions are in need of favors again but were minding their own business at The Den on Saturday afternoon. (Author: Gardener)

LionsTEAM NEWS: Millwall vs Peterborough United - two Lions changes plus Jed Wallace backs Millwall forward in top 7 for goals per minute - as he hasn't ruled out an appeal in World Cup year 'Anything can happen' - Millwall manager as Lions, Boro, Sheffield United and Luton in play-off battle 'Anything can happen' - Millwall manager as Lions, Boro, Sheffield United and Luton in play-off battle GARY Rowett said 'anything can happen' after Millwall had won their play-off by beating Peterborough United 3-0 at The Den on Saturday in the final day of play. The Lions are three points behind Sheffield United in sixth place - Middlesbrough two points behind the Blades - with one game to go. Rowett cited the example of Swansea, who were six points and seven goals behind Nottingham Forest with two games to go but finished in the top six two seasons ago. Millwall will also be hoping Luton, who has the same points tally and goal difference as United, gets pulled back in. The Lions head to Bournemouth on the final day. Millwall scored their three goals in the second half on Saturday. "I don't think we started tight, I actually thought we started out pretty relaxed," Rowett said. “But Peterborough's results have been good for the last five or six games, obviously it was too late for them this season. You don't just roll up against teams like that and score as many goals as you want. "We had about three or four different plans to watch the game today. Try to make as many attack changes as needed to win the game 1-0. I'm a bit disappointed we couldn't score four or five goals.” Rowett was asked if he had a minimum goal for the number of goals they need to win against Grant McCann's side. "I don't think there is a minimum. I felt like we needed three or four goals today, probably four goals, which then led to a four-goal swing,” Rowett said. “Then you look at it and think if Bournemouth Forest can beat and get promoted on Tuesday night then maybe their mindset is a little different in the last game. Fulham plays Sheffield United and there is always a chance of Fulham scoring more than a goal or two. “Basically you had to win the game and hope that there is a bit of momentum. "We saw it a couple of seasons ago, Swansea were about seven goals behind Forest and they did it, I think Forest got beaten badly in the last game of the season. It's not up to us to sort that out, it's just that we take care of business today, as we said before. We've actually started to score more goals towards the end of the season, which is maybe a bit frustrating. "But it is what it is and we put it in the last game, gave it a little chance and we'll see what happens. “There was maybe a bit of disappointment in the players' first half when they saw the result last night [when United beat QPR]. It would have been nice to have looked that result our way and had a little more in today's game. “At this stage of the season if Sheffield United win their games then fair game to them, good luck to them as they do what they have to do to potentially finish in the top six.

Top Sheffield United Championship winners after a dull final day of the regular season

The Championship season ended on a whimper, with Sheffield United the big winners in more ways than one... (Author: Gardener)

Top Sheffield United ChampionshipThe Championship season ended on a whimper, with Sheffield United the big winners in more ways than one... Sheffield United At the start of Saturday, Sheffield United were not guaranteed a play-off spot. At the end of the season, the Blades were five points behind the top six with a goal difference twice that of seventh-placed Middlesbrough. It was perhaps an uncharacteristically drama-free final day of the championship, but that suited Paul Heckingbottom's side very well. When former Barnsley and Leeds boss Heckingbottom took charge at Bramall Lane in the first half of the season, it looked more like the Blades were on the verge of a second straight relegation than an immediate return to the top flight battle. The difficult part was turning a season of struggle under Slavisa Jokanovic into a campaign of joy, hope and excitement. That's not to say that winning the play-offs will be easy, but United will appreciate their chances of first beating Nottingham Forest over two legs and then either Huddersfield or Luton at Wembley. Performances like that 4-0 win over champions Fulham have been fairly commonplace throughout the season, and each subsequent one will give the South Yorkshire outfit every chance to rejoin the Cottagers in the promised land of the Premier League. Four different goalscorers and four different assist providers with three players ending up on either side of the scoring stats also made for enjoyable reading. Like Sheffield United, a relatively drama-free lunchtime for Luton. The Hatters poked fun at the 7-0 defeat by Fulham that left their play-off spot looking precarious, and also finished the game five points clear of the dotted line. They could have lost 7-0 again and it wouldn't have mattered thanks to losses to fellow contenders Millwall and Middlesbrough, but this was such a good way to end the regular season. The goal was a gift from goalkeeper Orjan Nyland, but Harry Cornick's speed in taking the ball off the Norwegian's feet and landing between the shot stopper – or lack thereof – and the near post still required work. Cornick's transformation into a dependent championship shooter is far from the only individual improvement to be seen at Kenilworth Road this season, but it's an important reason why Nathan Jones' side deservedly finished a good distance inside the top six . Huddersfield Town's pole position But Huddersfield also know they will go into the top six battle on pole position from the four contenders. Hull City's final equalizer at home against Nottingham Forest gave Huddersfield third in the league and a home game with Luton after a trip to Kenilworth Road, as opposed to a double-header with Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United. Another special day in West Yorkshire for the Terriers was concluded with simplicity - the theme of this final League Two weekend - goals from Danny Ward and Harry Toffolo in the first half showed how simply Carlos Corberan's side have been making their campaign easy for some time had now. No trouble but plenty of hope of a Premier League return after three seasons in the Championship. A first season in nine years ending on a positive goal difference is also welcomed. With five goals in seven games for the left-back, Toffolo could write himself into Huddersfield folklore if he takes that form in the last potential three games of the season. Kieffer Moore is a more expected beneficiary of a stellar goalscoring streak but he has finally done well after missing most of the season from being in goal due to poor form and injuries at both Cardiff and Bournemouth. Substituting for one of the few championship games in the second half where anything rides on it, Moore's late midweek winner made this a drama-free afternoon for the Cherries. That didn't stop Moore from making the difference once again with his fourth late goal in his last three games, suggesting he can help relieving top scorer Dominic Solanke of some Premier League goals next season . Preston's Danish striker stayed under the radar for most of the season but his double on the final day helped prevent Middlesbrough from ever being able to contend for a top-six spot while also maintaining a claim for one of their own Place to raise the top division in the next season. With 13 and 14 goals of the season, Riis added up to 19 goal contributions in a team that has struggled for goals all too often this season. It's the ruthlessness Ryan Lowe hopes to see more of and bring to bear next season. If ever a team was convinced that playing without pressure leads to better performances, the already relegated Peterborough, who beat Blackpool 5-0 in their last game as a Championship club for at least a year, was overwhelming proof of that. Perhaps the most complete performance of the Posh season means it ends on a high note and the London Road team are hoping to bring some of that momentum into their 2022/23 League One campaign. Tony Mowbray and Mark Warburton end on a high Everyone was treated with more disdain and less respect than they deserved when his contract expired and ready to be sacked, but the good work that Blackburn boss Mowbray and QPR boss Warburton did brought to their clubs showed on the final day with hard-fought victories against Birmingham and Swansea respectively. Wherever they end up next, they will get special managers who have exceeded many expectations. Blackburn and QPR will have to set aside work to make improvements to the dugout next season. Well, that's how you make a day less dramatic. Middlesbrough were one of just two teams able to jeopardize proceedings on the final day, trailing 2-0 before the tables made their usual first appearance of the final day as things stand. Chris Wilder's side were at times their own worst enemy late in the season, although not scoring more often was their relapse. Four goals conceded on the last day against a Preston side who haven't made it into the habit of scoring buckets by the bucket showed just how far off the pace they really were. Boro still could not have made the top six based on other results, but this was a poor way to end a season that ended with such a bitter taste in the mouth. Wilder doubted his future lay at Riverside in April, while performances have been lacking for some time. Some promotion-hungry clubs, narrowly missing out on the last matchday, use it as a stepping stone to progress the following season. Instead, Middlesbrough has a boss who refuses to commit, finances that require a promotion sooner rather than later and high wages being spent on borrowers who have brought no tangible benefit to the campaign. Where Middlesbrough will go from here is undetermined but looking down seems more likely than up to 2022/23. West Brom's lack of goals has cost them heavily on more than one occasion this season but they felt at home against Barnsley as they scored in what is perhaps the most promising performance and certainly the finest result of Steve Bruce's reign. For Barnsley, it was a sad farewell at the end of a desolate season, just 12 months after the great joy of reaching the play-offs. Managerless and rudderless, the main fear is that Barnsley has yet to hit rock bottom. Aside from the effective points deduction suffered by Chris Hughton in seven games this season, Nottingham Forest were easily the second-best Championship team this season. It therefore feels odd to suggest that Steve Cooper's side could be losers by any measure, having climbed from the bottom to fourth place under the former Swansea City head coach. But losing mid-week in the winner-takes-almost-all clash to Bournemouth would have always taken the wind out of Forest's sails and it showed for much of the final day's clash with Hull that there was little left up for grabs was either third or fourth. The second home game was safe but Hull's last equalizer meant a point from their last two games with late pain in both games going to the play-offs, playing the much-coveted Sheffield United in place of Dark Horses Luton. In the space of six days, Fulham have gone from a 7-0 win to a 4-0 wrong-ended win. The 11-goal swing is a championship record in consecutive games and one of those wonderful events that can only happen on the final day. Blackpool End of Season Worst performance of the season was saved for the final matchday. Manager Neil Critchley echoed such sentiment as Blackpool's fantastic first season in the Championship ended with the most pathetic whimpers in Peterborough just half a decade after hitting rock bottom. If momentum means anything in football - and almost certainly not with a three-month hiatus - then Blackpool are in trouble next year. This was a bad day for Blackpool in what had been a good season that ended just a bit sour. Lack of drama on Championship final day The Championship is known for its reputation as one of the most entertaining divisions in the world. This season has been littered with typically big moments, but also marred by point deductions and parachute payments at both ends, meaning much had been decided before Matchday 46. The last day went unusually without any major dangers before kick-off. and that didn't change once during the afternoon. The three relegation places had long since been sewn up; only two of the four play-off spots were still up for grabs. Sheffield United and Luton started the day fifth and sixth respectively and never deviated from those positions. Hopefully the playoffs will bring more cheering and excitement.

Sheffield United need to show they have learned as a contract problem simmers beneath the surface

Sheffield United are at risk of failing to learn a lesson from relegation from the Premier League as an unresolved contractual problem behind the scenes became a distraction. (Author: Gardener)

With the January transfer window fast approaching when those in the final stages of their agreements can have talks with non-English clubs, a large part of Slavisa Jokanovic's squad will leave Bramall Lane at the end of the season. While the situation gives United an opportunity to undertake a major re-profiling next summer, it also threatens to create a problem similar to the one they faced in John Lundstram's last term in the closing stages of his deal. The stalemate had a detrimental effect on the player's relationship with Jokanovic's predecessor, Chris Wilder, who wanted to raise money to fund an offer for Reading's John Swift or Jesse Lingard after being on a possible loan long before the West Ham kidnapping the Manchester United midfielder had spoken to The Switch. After Jokanovic expressed his desire to sign two wingers and a sustaining midfielder when the market reopens, he clearly believes United needs a refresher after entering the international break 18th on the championship table. While some of those who will leave will be redundant, others, including midfielder Ben Osborn, will likely be part of the Serb's plans. Like Osborn, Lys Mousset, Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick, Chris Basham and Adlene Guedioura face an uncertain future in South Yorkshire. Jack Robinson and Luke Freeman will also go on frees, while loanee players Morgan Gibbs-White, Ben Davies, Robin Olsen and Conor Hourihane will return to their parent clubs at the end of the campaign unless they are permanently bought. "The way business works now, very often when someone goes for free, their value will very often go into things like wages or contract fees," he told The Star. Mousset has been linked to moving to Russia prior to Jokanovic's appointment in May. But the striker, a £ 10m purchase from Bournemouth AFC, has since shown signs of regaining his form and fitness - he scored three goals in six games after recovering from a hamstring injury.


Missed John Fleck, McCall's antics and Gibbs-White showing in Blades moments

Goals from Rhian Brewster and Billy Sharp sealed a convincing win and crowned a good week on the pitch with seven out of nine points. The game was not lacking in entertainment as snow fell on a bitterly cold Bramall Lane. Here are the Sheffield United moments you may have missed. Heckingbottom's redesigned management team, Assistant Managers Stuart McCall and Jack Lester were well received when they were introduced to the crowd one by one. It was interesting to see 'Macca' in the dugout and the energy he brought with him. He was constantly on the move and listened to both the fourth official and the assistant referee on several occasions when he was dissatisfied with some decisions against United. When he saw his antics on the training ground and in the dugout this week, it was good to have him back. He was fired the next day but was present to see his new manager's inaugural win. The United goalkeeping coach was seen on the sidelines shouting instructions as the snow began to fall, but with the clothing on his lower half usually associated with games in August, not a freezing cold November. Paul Heckingbottom subsequently revealed that the players reacted to the messages that were relayed to the players during the game. It was interesting to see Macca and Jack Lester working during game breaks. Jack Lester, who pays particular attention to strikers as part of his role as head of player development, pulled David McGoldrick aside to give him information that the player apparently took on board.

McCall, a good midfielder in his day, had Oliver Norwood on the sidelines to share his point, and it was good to see the entire management team working together. "The players' approach and reaction to the news has been good," said Heckigbottom. At halftime there was a minute of applause for Gary Speed. This weekend marked the tenth anniversary of the death of the former United player and manager, and pitchside spokesman Gary Sinclair made sure everyone paid their respects during the break. With Speed's picture on the big screen, Sinclair said, “A wonderful man who has been missed by so many. Morgan Gibbs-White urges Rhian Brewster to take the shot for the opening goal The loaned Wolves man had a bigger say in Rhian Brewster's goal than we could possibly have imagined at the time, although the goal fell over the left, at the Enda Stevens and Conor Hourihane were heavily involved, Gibbs-White was also inside the box and closest to Brewster when the striker received Stevens' threaded pass. Gibbs-White pointed to the gate. Believing the shot was hit and a much better option than an extra pass, he urged Brewster to go on goal and the striker duly let go for his second league goal in three games.


Blade's true financial picture as an investment promise

CEO Stephen Bettis insists that failure to secure promotion to the Premier League will not put the club in financial trouble (Author: Gardener)

BladeSheffield United's true financial position and investment pledge than United World to play a bigger role CEO Stephen Bettis insists the club will not get into financial trouble if they do not get promoted back to the Premier League. Get the latest Sheffield United news delivered to your inbox every day - Sign up for free email updates. Something went wrong, please try again later. Thank you for signing upWe have more newslettersShow meSheffield United Board Member Abdullah Alghamdi said the club had spent or invested £ 430m in the past four years and promised to spend more over the next five years. Alghamdi, who is also the CEO of United World, gave an overview of the investments made in recent years at a briefing with the press yesterday. The owner, Prince Abdullah, reportedly wanted to sell the club recently, but Alghamdi revealed how to seek “strategic” investments in line with the club’s plan. Helping to paint the financial landscape of Bramall Lane straight, Alghamdi said, “On the investment side, we're in no rush in terms of deadlines. “We don't need the investment today or tomorrow. We are looking for strategic investors who can work with us on a long-term basis. The Sheffield United Plan is at the core of that plan as part of the United World Group. “I just want to shed some light on the January transfer window. The cost of this change (firing Jokanovic and his staff) is higher than the potential cost of transfers in this window, so it's more about the long-term "When I talk about a long-term plan, it's not about the next five or six Window but about the next five or six seasons that we want to plan for. "Each club will have its own plan within United World and with regards to Sheffield United, Paul [Heckingbottom] will give us a more detailed and solid plan for the next five Or present six years, which includes investing in players and investing in facilities "In the last four seasons we've been two seasons in the Championship and two seasons in the Premier League, we've got around £ 237m in TV revenue. At the same time we've spent or invested £ 430 million, and in the next five years we'll be investing and au Yes, certainly because the club and the staff are growing and we will have much better players. "The bottom line is we need a plan." No, we won't work like that, we will work with the football manager on a longer-term plan where they can develop players and staff from within. "We will have a new hotel here next season and, if we get the permits, hopefully a new academy, a new first team building. " sacked yesterday, the leaders insisted that the goal was still to fight for a place in the top division but as Stephen Bettis outlined, failure to do so will not put the club in dire financial straits. If we don't make promotion we'll be about £ 100million worse off in terms of next season revenue, "he said. The club are in a position where they will continue to be sustainable, whatever happened." Part of United's new plan is to forge a closer working relationship with the other clubs in the United World Group, Beerschot and Châteauroux. Leave it here and join our weekly Sheffield United web chat as we discuss the latest developments on Bramall Lane. United's head of recruitment, Paul Mitchell, will have a bigger role to play in identifying players and Bettis explained how they intend to use the clubs' network. "We have created a pyramid in terms of the clubs that we have acquired at different levels and different standards. We have worked on the top line strategies and plans for the future. There is always an opportunity for the players within the Group to go up and down. " "When we look at United World, we must not just look at Sheffield United because players can move between clubs and ultimately when one of those players becomes the real talent we think we can bring to those clubs there can." is the ability for them to come to us. “The first couple wasn't as successful as we would have liked with loans to Beerschot, but I think more of that will be seen in the future and it will have a positive effect.” Take Châteauroux if you want to know the story the club and the players who spawned them, and their scout network, which is a prime example of the pond they fish in, is known to produce some talent.


Both sides can commit at Ashton Gate

Sheffield United are looking to cement their position in the top six of the Championship when they travel to Bristol City on Easter Monday. Mark O'Haire picks his best bet. (Author: Gardener)

Ashton GateBristol City boss Nigel Pearson praised his players for showing exactly the reaction needed after asking his squad of players to show their character and personality on the pitch when they traveled to Stoke on Good Friday. The Robins won 1-0 against Jay Dasilva, the unlikely top scorer, when his cross went in the net with 10 minutes to go. City were determined on defense and frustrated the Potters with their tenacity as the Robins conceded just their second goal in 21 games. On any other day, the visitors could have improved their score if Antoine Semenyo had worn his shooting shoes, but Pearson was delighted with the effort his side put in in a rare away win. After the game, Pearson said: "We're talking about personalities and I think we showed it was a collective effort, a little bit rough, it had to be against a team that has quite a lot of quality. Sheffield United head coach Paul Heckingbottom described his side as "naïve" after watching the Blades concede an expensive injury-time win at home to little Reading on Good Friday, just minutes after conceding the equalizer in five minutes of injury-time the hosts instead scored an easy goal when Royals defender Tom McIntyre used Michael Morrison's nod from a free-kick to give the visitors a shock three-pointer in the most dramatic of circumstances at Bramall Lane. After the game, Heckingbottom said: “We knew they were going to be difficult to break and a threat on the counterattack and we had to be patient. Bristol City and Sheffield United have drawn just one in their last 17 league games since 2007/08, with the Blades dominating those head-to-head ties (S10-D1-N6). The Blades have also bagged top honors in four of their last seven trips to Ashton Gate (S4-D1-L2), winning the second leg 2-0. Good Friday's success at Stoke was just Bristol City's 4,507/2 second Championship win in nine games (W2-D2-L5), while only four clubs have suffered more league losses than the Robins (20) this season. Nigel Pearson's side returned W7-D7-L7 at Ashton Gate, although that record reduces to W2-D5-L6 if you exclude the bottom 10 of the table. The Blades have only had one straight league win since February, earning just W3-D3-L4 in their last 10 games. United have largely built their challenge on a strong record at Bramall Lane under the supervision of Paul Heckingbottom, amassing only W4-D3-L4 on the road. Bristol City's games this season have shown a respectable 3.00 goals per game - 26/42 (62%) games have paid for over 2.5 goals 1.8910/11 and 29/42 (69%) showed that both teams scored 1.824/5 winners. Those totals reduce in Ashton Gate Bar BTTS, which actually ramps up to an impressive 16/21 (76%) winrate here. The Robins have scored three of those 21 home fights at all bars and have recorded a paltry three shutouts themselves in front of their own supporters. With City's ability to play without pressure and untie the ties, a similarly open and entertaining game could ensue against a Sheffield United side who don't always impress away from home. Ten of Bristol City's 11 appearances with top-half teams have resulted in wins with both teams and I'm happy to follow the trends again as the Blades attempt to recover from the shock Good Friday defeat.
