Sheffield United Odds
If you’re wondering why the end of this decade is considered one of the most exciting periods in the Premier League’s history, the Blades are a perfect example. The last few years saw them storm their way up from League One to the top-flight and end 2019/20 with a jaw-dropping 9th placement. Interestingly, they are not even the only club to do so in recent memory. Together with Leeds, Sheffield are the full-of-surprises underdogs that everyone loves to love.
Chris Wilder’s leadership can be described as nothing short of miraculous. That said, despite the Top 10 Finish last year, most bookies still consider the Blades a relegation favourite. At odds of 2.62, they are the fourth most likely team to end up in the Championship.
You might want to wait for a few legs before putting down any Outright bets, but another Top 10 Finish sounds perfectly reasonable from where we’re standing. It’s priced at a mind-boggling 10.00, too! As long as they keep up the momentum, Sheffield United might end up being the source for a lot of betting value in 2020/21.
Sheffield United Key Players
Though we’d still want more information to prove last season wasn’t a fluke, Wilder’s understanding of total football is a wonder to behold. The key to their success lies in flexible positional rotations that end up catching superior lineups completely by surprise.
That said, the players themselves aren’t as important as their unique system and exceptional team play. Still, it’s easy enough to pick a few standouts. Midfielder Sander Berge is considered the squad’s backbone, together with striker Billy Sharp and his tendency to blur the lines between the midfielder and forward.
Wilder’ also acquired some more experienced Premier League players over the transfer period. These include goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and Liverpool’s young striker Rhian Brewster.
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.
