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.
