We take a closer look at one of the new teams in the Championship for 2017/18, Sheffield United ...

Team: Sheffield United

Manager: Chris Wilder

Nickname: The Blades

Stadium: Bramall Lane

Capacity: 32,702

Miles from Loftus Road: 320

Position: 1st (League One)

2016/17: After enduring a slow start to their League One campaign things began to pick up for Chris Wilder’s side around October and from that moment on there was no stopping the Blades. United were simply too powerful for the rest of the teams in the division and their attacking style of football saw them finish well deserved champions, clocking up 100 points. 

One to watch:  Billy Sharp – The forward once again showed his goal scoring prowess in League One this season topping the scoring charts with 30 strikes. The Yorkshireman is undoubtedly Wilder’s talisman up top and will likely be their main goal scoring threat in the upcoming campaign.
