End of term report

Here's their end of term report card...

An average of 26,177 fans turned out to watch United each week, in the 32,702 capacity stadium.
Automatic promotion is pretty much as good as it gets. Sure, the Blades didn't win the title, but that's of little significance in the grand scheme of things.
Bit of a shocker here. United crashed at the first opportunity in both the Carabao Cup (Hull City) and the FA Cup (Barnet).
A stellar effort from the Blades boss, whose inspirational leadership helped his side earn automatic promotion.

Some very shrewd signings from the Blades this season highlights including bargain deals for David McGoldrick and loan sensation Dean Henderson.
The local lad was at his talismanic best this season, driving the side on to glory and bagging 23 goals in the process.
Basham by name, Bash 'em by nature. Detention for the defender, who picked up 11 yellow cards and one red.
It's hard to pick an under-performing player from a promotion-winning side, but Conor Washington didn't have the best of seasons.
The Manchester United loanee had a fantastic season between the sticks, and the Blades will be eager to retain his services for next season.
