Sheffield United F.C. fans will be pleased to know that there are some apps available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Sheffield United Football Club is a professional English football club based in the city of Sheffield, South Yorkshire. They were the first sporting team to use the name ‘United’ and are nicknamed ‘The Blades’, thanks to Sheffield’s worldwide reputation for steel production. Founded in 1889 their home ground is Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United enjoyed possibly their most successful period between 1897 and 1902, winning the League in 1898 and the FA Cup in 1899 and 1902, with further wins following in 1915 and 1925. Their best performance in the League Cup was reaching the semi finals in 2003. Times that are more recent saw The Blades promoted to the Premier League in 2006, which shortly ended amidst controversy after just one season. Despite reaching the Championship play-off final in 2009, further decline followed, where an over reliance on loan players and the sale of the club’s star players saw The Blades relegated to the third tier of English football for the first time in 23 years.
