Sheffield Utd: BSaD opinion

Previous encounters
A trip to Bramall Lane memorable for some zero-tolerance stewarding and a pretty harsh scoreline. Also Freddie Payne's improbable scissor kick, several goals by Ian Bryson and regular abuse for Dave Bassett.

Last season
Adrian Heath's brief and bizarre tenancy following Steve Bruce's departure did nothing to suggest that United were anything but a club heading up shit creek without a boat, let alone a paddle. Neil Warnock came in and guided the Blades into the sixteenth place that is reserved for whichever side he's managing every season.

Next season
Keith Curle, David Kelly and Georges Santos were all destined to play for United at some point. It sort of fits. Marcus Bent's blossoming saved United last season after several years and clubs in which he was almost about to be good... but the club still has an eminently chaotic feel to it. Will stay up, but not much more.

How to annoy a United fan
Repeatedly get United confused with Wednesday. Talk about how nice that blue and white kit is, how Hillsborough's a really tremendous ground, how that Danny Wilson didn't really produce the goods, how they must be gutted to be back in the same division as "that crappy other team", and so on. Please note that BSaD cannot be held responsible for any injuries sustained while following these suggestions.

* A unique experiment, featuring instant reactions from BSaD pundits to the mention of the club's name.
