United's new book, celebrating promotion to the Premier League, is on sale now in the Blades Superstore.

The finishing touches of the coffee-table style publication - entitled 'Our Time' - are have been applied with delivery taken on Friday morning.

The book has exclusive interviews with United's stars of the promotion campaign, detailing their favourite games and moments. It also has the post-season thoughts of manager Chris Wilder and foreword written by former boss Dave Bassett, who masterminded United's promotion from the second tier in 1990.

In addition, the book has numerous unseen photographs from the closing months of an absorbing season in United's history. The 2018-19 campaign was a truly memorable one for players, staff and fans of the Blades, securing automatic promotion to the Premier League after a 12-year absence.

Top-flight football was confirmed after a fascinating battle with Yorkshire rivals Leeds United, and was greeted by jubilant scenes across the city and beyond. The Blades finished the season with 89 points, six ahead of Leeds, and lost just twice in the league since Christmas.

In 'Our Time', boss Wilder comments: "To finish where we did, ahead of some very powerful football clubs, and do it in the manner we did, I think that struck a blow for coaching, organisation, recruitment, team spirit, togetherness and the connection I've spoken so much about.

"A lot was spoken about our togetherness but the way we played from a football point of view as well was very pleasing. The goals we've scored, the free-flowing football we played against some top sides and players. And the scenes afterwards will live forever, not just with me but I should imagine with everyone who's connected with Sheffield United."

Just two years after winning the League One title, the Blades are now preparing for life in the top-flight and 'Our Time' is a lasting memory of a season that surely no Unitedite of a generation will ever forget.

'Our Time' retails at £20 and is available in the Blades Superstore.
