Yorkshire Post football writer Leon Wobschall reviews the first ten games of the Championship campaign and discusses where Sheffield United will finish this season.

So far, so good?

The irresistible winning mentality of last season has extended into the new campaign, with the Blades having rewound the clock to their halcyon days under Dave Bassett and Neil Warnock with their togetherness and team spirit having few peers at this level.

There is quality in abundance too with the likes of John Fleck, Chris Basham, Paul Coutts and Jack O’Connell having all stepped up impressively and seamlessly to the Championship plate, with the Blades’ also possessing one of the best young players outside of the top-flight in the shape of the prodigiously-gifted David Brooks.

Room for improvement

Thumbs up; Chris Wilder's Sheffield United continue to shine

Ticking along just nicely and it would be churlish to find fault with what has been a uniformly excellent start to the season.

The Blades, as Chris Wilder has opined, have competed in every game this term, with the plus point being that several of their wins have arrived without Billy Sharp or Clayton Donaldson being on the pitch.

Likely destination

Play-off contention.
