Have your say

The Star's James Shield has been speaking about new Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder after his official unveiling at Bramall Lane.

Among the first things Wilder has changed is the handing of the captain's armband to fellow boyhood Blade Billy Sharp, a decision which James feels is significant.

He said: "He's made an immediate impression by appointing Billy Sharp as the new club catptain and that was the first in a series of announcements that will have really struck a chord with United supporters. That is going to be crucial because one of the major themes to come out of the conference was that he wants to unite the club, he wants to bring it together after what's been a very difficult season."
