Sheffield United Odds
The Blades have gone through an incredible journey over the past three years. Led by their mastermind manager Chris Wilder, Sheffield United went from League One to the Premier League in what can only be described a formidable rise, capped with the 2018/19 promotion into the top tier of English football.
Heading into the 2019/20 campaign in high hopes, the club from South Yorkshire will have to face reality, though. While they have been written off even before the season started, the Blades will have their resolve and determination tested big time in the EPL. The role of the underdog suits Sheffield United right, however, and they will relish a chance to refute it.
Nevertheless, Wilder’s men are the second favourites to go straight back into the Championship after one year back with the elite. The odds of 2.25 on Sheffield United to be relegated are more than indicative but even more so are the odds of them staying up – 1.67. Ultimately, Sheffield United are likely to be the least predictable side in the league, capable of taking a couple of big scalps along the way and – hopefully for their fans – maintain their Premier League status. After all, their last two seasons in the Premier League ended in nerve-wracking final-day relegations!
Sheffield United Key Players
From the moment they secured promotion, Sheffield United made sure to boost their squad and – with it – their chances of staying up. Chris Wilder witnessed the club board break club transfer record four times during the summer of 2019. However, arguably the biggest signings arrived on free transfers. At the same time, they are likely to be Sheffield United’s key players during the 2019/20 season.
Defender Phil Jagielka is bound to bring vital improvement to the last season's joint best defence in the Championship which conceded 41 goals in 41 matches played. Moreover, the controversial midfielder, and once a huge Manchester United talent, Ravel Morisson, will – if nothing else – attract plenty of eyeballs at Bramall Lane this year.
Sheffield United Rivalry
When it comes to rivalries, it’s a well-documented fact that Sheffield United’s biggest adversaries are their city neighbours – Sheffield Wednesday. The Steel City Derby is a hotly-contested affair which, unfortunately, the Premier League supporters haven’t had the chance to enjoy in since 1993/94.
As for the EPL, Sheffield United have become fierce rivals with West Ham United and matches between these two teams will be the ones to watch if you are a Blades fan. The two clubs became enemies following the 2006/07 final-day relegation. With West Ham surviving the cut due to a superior goal difference, the Hammers received a fine for signing Carlos Tevez and Javier Marscherano under dubious circumstances.
Sheffield United appealed to the league, hoping to be reinstated into the Premier League but when everything failed, they sought damages from West Ham by taking them to court. The lawsuit charges caused plenty of ripples in the public, resulting in a modern-day rivalry between the two clubs.
Sheffield United History
Originally formed in 1885 by members of the Sheffield United Cricket Club, the football club became the first one in England to use United in their name. Their original nickname used to be “The Cutlers” as a reference to Sheffield’s status as the major cutlery producer in the country. Otherwise known as the Owls and most commonly The Blades, the club was, however, officially formed and registered on 22 March 1889.
Sheffield United’s long history saw them win the First Division in 1897/98 and come agonisingly close to winning the league on two more occasions, in 1896/97 and 1899/00, when they finished as runners-up. The Blades have got four FA Cup titles to their name, while their League One title from 2017 made Sheffield United only the fourth club to win all top tiers of English football. The Blades play their games at Bramall Lane in front of 32,000 people. However, the history books still remember a historic FA Cup match against Leeds United when the total of 68,187 people attended the 5th-round home match. Sheffield United’s traditional home kit includes red and white stripes which is the original concept adopted at the very beginning in 1985.
