05/06: Preview: Sheffield United

How did they do?
"Thereafter, we regained our composure. In that, we were somewhat assisted by our opponents' insistence on trying to hit us on the break, Kenny repeatedly smacking instant punts into our half for forwards to chase and, without exception, for Alec Chamberlain to claim unchallenged. You could see how it might work. But as it didn't work, we merely got the ball back when we'd barely had time to notice that we'd lost it."
How will they do?
You have to hand it to Colin... he's not a man to abandon his principles. In Neil Shipperley United have signed their thirty-seventh big lump of a striker since Warnock took over as manager. In Craig Short, another gnarled centre half. In Danny Webber, sadly, someone who's likely to spend a while on the treatment table. All of which adds up to mid-table irrelevance for the Blades - there's other clubs who'd take that now, mind...
