There's nothing quite like the tradition of Boxing Day football and for Sheffield United, there have certainly been some interesting games of the 26th of December... both good and bad.
So ahead of tomorrow's clash with Everton, we had a look back through the archives to remember nine classic Christmas crackers. (Sorry).
A topsy-turvy game against Derby at Bramall Lane which had it all. The noise ringing around the ground after David McGoldrick was denied an obvious penalty, Derby equalised moments later and Chris Wilder and Frank Lampard went toe-to-toe on the touchline was unbelievable. United eventually ran out 3-1 winners and earned a vital three points on their way to promotion that season

A Christmas cracker from Michael Brown secured victory for the Blades at Walsall, on their way to the play-off final in a season that also saw United reach both domestic cup semi-finals. United had on-loan Jon Harley sent off, but kept going and got their reward when Brown cut in and smashed a shot into the top corner. He scored a remarkable 22 goals from midfield that season

United bounced back from 2-0 down at home to Hull to level at 2-2, with Ched Evans' double cancelling out a brace from Jay Simpson. But then Jimmy Bullard pounced in the last minute to win the game for the visitors, and condemn the Blades to another defeat on their way to relegation to League One that season

United saw out the millennium with two wins inside three days, beating Birmingham 2-0 on Boxing Day at St Andrew's. Paul Devlin, a boyhood Blues fan, put the Blades ahead in just the fourth minute before striker Martin Smith made it two in the second half. Former Blade Marcelo was up front for Birmingham
