Donny vs The Blades - live on the BBC

Last updated : 22 October 2010 By Bladesmadeditor


It's the first time Sheffield United are live on the BBC since the company bought rights to show ten live Championship games a season.

United have had previous experience on terrestrial television in the last decade, though.

Our 1:0 loss to Arsenal at Old Trafford in the incredible run in the FA Cup in the 2002/2003 campaign was live on the BBC.

Two seasons later saw another narrow loss to the Gunners which was also live on the BBC; Arsene Wenger's men won on penalties at Bramall Lane in an FA Cup Replay after the original tie, also on the BBC, ended 1:1 after a late Andy Gray penalty.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the time for United to stamp their authority on this league and show the country what we are really all about.

An unbeaten run of two can be built on, and just a couple more wins will get us right back into the mix in such an unpredictable league!
