Sheffield United: Head to Head

Peter Waring

Sheffield United: Head to Head reveals for the first time how the Blades have fared against every club they’ve ever played, in any competition, since the club entered the Football League. From Accrington to York City, United’s complete record of matches against each club is looked at in detail and illustrated with pictures. Also included is a table of players who’ve played for both clubs and a ‘fact file’ highlighting the most surprising nuggets to be gleaned from this fresh way of interpreting the club’s statistics.

Did you know that in September 1998 two Blades players scored a hat-trick in the same game for the only time since World War Two when Brian Deane and Tony Agana put three each past Chester City? Tthat United’s highest-ever scoring draw is 5-5 against Leicester in 1951? Or that the Blades last reached double figures in a match when they beat Burnley 10-0 in 1929. All these facts and figures, along with countless others, are easily accessible in Sheffield United: Head to Head, which deserves a place on any fan’s bookshelf.
