    It took a while but as SUFC start to move forward with a new manager, we were finally ready to take a misty-eyed look back on the Chris Wilder years at Sheffield United - the state of the club when Wilder took over, the norms that he shattered while in charge, and how it felt being managed to success by one of our own.

Swin Don’t

Excellent distraction from the actual games at the minute.. thanks lads

Greeny71 ,

Brilliant, even when the Blades are not.

Top class podcast by two proper Blades. Andrew’s faragesque pronunciation of foreign players is hilarious. Both love their club and talk sensibly about the Blades (most of the time).

Clowne blade ,

Great POD

Cheers guys, something to look forwards to and listen to on journeys to work. Keep up the good work. UTB
