Sheffield United are standing on the edge of footballing dominance that will make them England's most successful team for the next 1000 years.

But before Blades fans get too excited, the stats come as a result of a simulation through the popular computer game, Football Manager.

Reddit user Lorf_Yimzo set the game on holiday mode and let it run for a couple of months before reaching 1000 years, where he found that two of football's older clubs United and Burnley battled it out for the right to be England's best.

The Football Manager fan posted his results in a remarkably in-depth spreadsheet and it was United who came out on top with an incredible period of success
The Blades racked up 167 Premier League titles, 41 Champions League crowns, 31 Europa League wins, 95 FA Cups and 90 League Cup successes.

Interestingly, Wednesday fare very poorly and win just one Premier League title, FA Cups and three league cups. Perhaps there's a Blade amongst the programmers.

Indeed the Owls are one of the worst south Yorkshire sides with Barnsley winning 93 leagues, 72 FA Cups and 21 Champions League titles while Rotherham United could look forward to 58 Premier Leagues and 14 Champions Leagues.

Sadly for Doncaster Rovers fans, they can look forward to no trophies whatsoever in the next 1000 years.
