The re­turn of the Steel City derby

FourFourTwo - - CONTENTS -

Sh­effield’s Steel City Derby is back af­ter an ab­sence of five sea­sons, thanks to the Blades’ promotion back up to the Cham­pi­onship and Wed­nes­day’s ag­o­nis­ing fail­ure to re­join the top tier via the play-offs. Both at­tract crowds that would be deemed healthy in the Premier League (33,000 for Wed­nes­day, 31,000 for United), and the South York­shire hordes al­ways cre­ate an at­mos­phere that is just as good as any other English derby. Magic!
