Brilliant Team Spirit. They’re gonna need that in spades next term. They also need to evolve slowly and not rush it, a la Fulham. Their swashbuckling style will see them take a few thrashings, next season, but it could get them some vital wins that see them safe.

Always liked 'em for some odd reason. Remember when their ground was really odd with only 3 sides but they still used to manage an atmosphere. My worst visit there was in the 70's when they had the Argentine Alex Sabella. He ran us ragged and they stuffed us 4-0.

As someone has said if they play the way they seem to have done this season I can see them scaring a few teams next season but they might just ship 6 or 7 against teams like City and Liverpool. Should be an interesting season for them and I hope they stay up - they are one of the sleeping giants in my view.

I wouldn’t go that far. There’s very few ‘Sleeping Giants’ left, and Sheff Utd aren’t one of them, IMO. They’re a ‘Big’ Club, but their Top Tier history is patchy at best.
Villa maybe, Leeds possibly, Sheff Weds, at a push; but not Sheff Utd.

How one result can change a club’s fortunes. Within a couple of seasons of us beating them at Wembley they then spent 6 seasons in the third tier.

We were close to staying up in 1983 in the second division, but then went down and spent 9 years fighting for our lives before a recovery, which truly only got us back on decent footings in 2000, some 17 years later. I wonder what our path may have been had we stayed up in 1983...

To add, our neighbours were almost relegated to the third tier in 1991, but for extravagant spending bubble jack a walker after he took over in the January. Had he not taken over I imagine their debts and position would have meant a similar path to our journey?

Definitely Villa (THE sleeping giant in my opinion) and Leeds. I think Sheff United not necesarilly because of history (although it is a very long history) but as potential I think.

How are Leeds a sleeping giant they've got a similar history to us and we've had more years in the top flight. Leeds are a nothing club with a big ground in a city, that's all.

If you could guarantee that, i'd take it. Trouble is, I dislike leeds so much, I don't want to risk them getting to Wembley AND winning. I want them done and dusted after the first leg, thanks very much.

Wilder is a great manager and will make them competitive. I'm pretty sure most neutrals wrote us off when we stayed up with the likes of Boyd and Arfield as regulars.
