Where did the Blades and Owls rank?

And it is good news for Blades fans as United were named the fifth best team among all Football League clubs in England last year - tucked in just behind Premier League giants Manchester City (1), Chelsea (2) and Tottenham (3).

Clubs were ranked on their results for the 2017 calendar year - with Blades' League One title joy and successful start to the Championship season seeing them clock up an average of 1.94 points per game over the last 12 months.

Doncaster Rovers were the next best ranked team locally, their promotion from League Two last season helping them to 30th place with an average of 1.50 points per game.

Then came Sheffield Wednesday in 32nd spot with 1.49 points per game across the 2017 calendar year, boosted by their run to the play-offs last season but hampered by a poor start this term.

Rotherham's disastrous season in the Championship saw them claim 79th spot with just 1.04 points per game, but it it was even worse for our other local clubs with struggling Barnsley placed 85th on 0.98 and Chesterfield just avoiding bottom spot in 91st with 0.79 points.

Not surprisingly, all-conquering Manchester City topped the table, prepared by Experimental 3-6-1, with a staggering 2.45 points per game.

Sunderland were officially the worst team of 2017 with a low 0.73 points per game
