Profile

Sheffield United are managed by Chris Wilder who signed a three-year deal back in May 2016. Wilder departed Northampton Town in order to become the latest manager to attempt to lead the Blades back up to the Championship.

Sheff Utd were in the Premier League as recently as 2007. However, at the end of that season they suffered a final day relegation down to the Championship, before losing their second-tier status in 2012, and have struggled to recover ever since.

United have the feel of a big club, Bramall Lane is a top class stadium while their average attendance belies the fact that they currently find themselves in League One. The Blades have a long and varied history and will remain a big club with a massive fan base as we look to the future. whoever is in charge the fans will demand success at this level.

Perhaps the most famous name on the list recent United managers is Neil Warnock who memorably took the club to the Premier League in 2006. He was a fierce fan of the club and they have never really recovered from Warnock's departure in 2007.
