Getting to know YOUR Premier League club before the start of the season - Sheffield United

Published on 10 August 2023 at 14:00

Sheffield United have returned to the Premier League. The Yorkshire based club finished second place in the Championship last season and will hope to make a memorable comeback to the English top division.

Who's in Charge?

Sheffield United's Manager Paul Heckingbottom will lead the Blades into this season following his appointment in November 2021. With many on the first team players sticking around when they dropped to the Championship in 2021, some would say the Blades have underperformed and should've gone straight back up at the first time of asking.

Unfortunately for Heckingbottom due to big wages still being paid 'Premier League Wages' so he has not been backed in the transfer market leading to the sales of big players.

In's and Out's



Auston Trusty- Arsenal £6 Million

Benie Traore - Hacken £4.6 Million

Anis Slimane - Brondby IF £2.7 Million 

Yasser Larouci -Troyes Loan Transfer


Lliman Ndiaye - Marseille, £18 Million

Sander Berge - Burnley, £15 Million

Enda Stevens - Stoke, Free Transfer


Sheffield United's standout player

I don't this player will stand out like a Haaland stand out but I do believe he will stand out because of how young he is bringing a bright spark into a very dark and a disappointing season for the Blades. This Player is Daniel Jebbison. 

Jebbison, who was born in Canada but is currently making waves in England, has already established a reputation as one of the country's most promising players. He made history by scoring in his Premier League debut, breaking the record for the youngest player to do so.

Nevertheless, despite this promising beginning, he only scored twice last season.

The Canadian is clearly trusted by the coaching staff due to him starting in big games such as the FA cup semi final against eventual winners Manchester City.

Will it be a successful or unsuccessful season for Sheffield United?

Unfortunately for United fans it will be a very disappointing season, selling big assets such as Berge and Ndiaye so close to the opening day and are yet to being anywhere near to replacing them I do believe will be relegated back to the Championship.

Without the sales of big players I still don't think the squad is strong enough to challenge and it would be a miracle if they stayed up.
