Chris Wilder is a major focus in Friday evening's edition of UTB - United's official matchday programme.

The Blades boss adorns the front cover and is the subject of a six-page interview inside. In it, he tells fans: "The advantage I had was my background, it gave me a good start. It gave me an understanding of what was happening and what needed changing.

"Supporters were craving to see a proper United side and certain teams have to play a certain way to reflect the supporters, this is one of those. We had a vision of what we wanted to do here, a ball over the top and a striker forcing the defender into a mistake gets a bigger cheer here than a Cruyff turn on the halfway line!"

In his programme notes, Wilder also thanks Unitedites for: "Consistent support in giving the players the platform to produce their best performances."

Friday's 84-page issue also includes Chris Basham, Billy Sharp and a quiz on Leon Clarke. There's also features on former players Mick Jones, Vinnie Jones and Fourth Division title winner, Jeff King, who celebrates his 65th birthday at the game.

UTB has remained £3 for the last 15 seasons - make sure you pick your copy up around the ground or in the Blades Superstore.
