In the start of a new series Richard Aisthorpe – long-time Sheffield United fan (and my Father-In-Law) brings us his views on a club he has followed since the 80′s. A club that has now gone full circle. I’ll let Richard take up the story…

I went to see Sheffield United play an early season game at home to Northampton in the Third Division (Now League 1).
