Championship 2008-09 Preview - Sheffield United

The Blades struggled for much of the last campaign although, given that they had Bryan Robson in charge for the bulk of the season, this would have come as no great surprise to many. Results improved markedly under Kevin Blackwell and some useful looking signings over the summer should ensure continued progress. With plenty of quality and depth to the squad, a play-off place will be the minimum requirement.
