UTB - United's official matchday programme - is once again packed full of content and features for the Boxing Day clash with Watford.

This week, we caught up with former Hornet and Blade, Wilf Rostron, to discuss his time at both clubs. A promotion winner with the Blades at Leicester in 1990, Wilf explains his memories of who was the 'zone man' from the half-time clip at Filbert Street as Dave Bassett and Geoff Taylor nearly confused their players, as featured in the famous documentary.

Wilf also looks back on his time under Bassett, whilst admits the promotion to the old First Division remains one of his career highlights.

"For me to move to United and then to get promoted, it was fantastic. I knew though with Harry that we would have a shot, and fortunately it came off," he said.

"We were just desperate to do it. We got ourselves into a great position, we just needed to get it over the line. The whole team, the club, staff, players - everyone - were just desperate to go up. I just remember thinking to trust in the system because it had served us so well. We did, and we won promotion."

Read the full interview with Wilf in Thursday's UTB.

Also, in this week's edition, Blades legend Tony Currie picks a very special One2Eleven, Dean Henderson talks through his football influences and Callum Robinson gives us a rundown on his toughest opponents.

All this plus interviews with Chris Wilder, and Oli McBurnie, plus a special Christmas themed Sheffield United team photo as supplied by artist Nick Bianco.
