Sheffield United #tenyearchallenge: Here's how the Blades' 2009 v 2019 starting teams compare

Another hashtag has taken over our social media channels and this time it's the #tenyearchallenge.

There have been some funny, embarrassing and brilliant flashbacks to 2009, so we thought we'd take a look back at Sheffield United's starting line up from a decade ago. Here's a look at how the Blades have changed from their 2-0 win over Watford in the Championship on 17 January 2009, to last weekend's 1-0 loss to Swansea City.
