Hi to all Senior Blades Christmas-New Year 20/21
Negative comments have been doing the rounds by a minority of Sheffield United supporters. Our manager Chris Wilder is the third longest serving manager in the Premier League, the toughest league in the WORLD. He’s there for a reason the last four years, Chris has targeted 17th position in the league, which means we need at least 35 points from the 72 available. We all need to get behind Chris, Alan and the team like we have in the last four seasons. WE CAN DO THIS COYRAWW
A lot of Christmas cards are given out at our Christmas Lunch, which this year was a non-event. A few weeks ago one of our committee members suggested that we don’t send cards this year but make a donation to the Prostrate Cancer Research, this was agreed by the committee although one or two made a larger donation and Senior Blades also made a donation on behalf of the Members to this worthy cause Prostrate Cancer Research.

As the curtain comes down on what has been a very strange year, 2020.We will finally come out of the tunnel in the new year. With the help of the vaccine which I am sure will be available to all Senior Blades after Christmas. The Committee would like to wish all members a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ( both on and off the pitch )
STAY SAFE AND WELL EVERYONE
Our Manager Chris Wilder’s Christmas Message
Hello to all Senior Blades out there and best wishes for the festive season – the end to what has been a crazy year, both on and off the pitch.
You will have heard me talking in the media about us missing supporters and I cannot express how much a big loss not having Unitedites in Bramall Lane has been but there was little that could be done and hopefully we are getting to a point where fans will be back soon, including our vociferous senior section.
Being asked to write these notes has reminded me that we will not have the annual Christmas lunch, which I knew before becoming manager here has always been a popular event – and will continue to be in years to come no doubt.
This year, though, I’m going to have to miss my annual joust with Chairman Brian Walton: I’m sure he would have had some constructive things to say on the microphone and I’d have suitably responded but we’ll just have to save it for 2021 when hopefully a little bit of normality will return.
Merry Christmas to one and all, look after each other and we hope to see you soon. Up The Blades – Chris
Our Sponsored Player, Ollie Norwood’s Christmas Message
When I heard I’d been sponsored by the Senior Blades I hoped it wasn’t a reflection that I was reaching my twilight years in football terms but I know that is not the case now, having learned of the other players sponsored in recent years.
Joking aside, I’d like to thank every member of the Senior Blades for their sponsorship and continual backing. I’m aware of the great work that has been going on since the early 1980s and how many people are involved.
The difficulties of 2020 have, no doubt, made getting together difficult for members but I hope you have all been chatting regularly with football high on the agenda.
I hear I’ve missed out on a Christmas lunch as the sponsored player, that is disappointing, hopefully something can be rearranged for the future but in the meantime I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from all the lads and myself. Ollie
