The 2002/03 season saw Sheffield United reach the semi-finals of both domestic cup competitions (FA Cup and League Cup) whilst in the First Division they would be losing finalists to Wolverhampton Wanderers in Cardiff. We look at that epic cup trail which saw them beat Yorkshire rivals Leeds United before facing Arsenal at Old Trafford.
There are many local derbies contested up and down the land with the Steel City Derby between Sheffield United and Wednesday remaining very close to my heart and whilst the likes of the Glasgow, Black Country, Manchester and Merseyside derbies are well publicised it is more noted that the Lancashire derby between Burnley and Blackburn Rovers is one not to be missed.

I have been a football fan all my life and although I do support my own club I find football and its history fascinating. No matter which club it is (football league or non-league), victorean football or modern era I enjoy reading and writing about it. So please enjoy my site and if you have any requests please email me them and will endeavor to researching it.
