Flashback: Nigel Adkins to Sheffield United

Flashback: Nigel Adkins to Sheffield United

It was not the best of season’s was it? Ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, Sheffield United appointed Nigel Adkins as manager on a three-year deal. Following a fifth-placed finish under Nigel Clough the season prior to his arrival, it felt like Adkins could be the one to restore Championship football at Bramall Lane.

Adkins’ arrival got a lot of United fans really excited, to say the least.

However, some fans of United and other clubs were more sceptical of the move. In the end, they had good reason to be.

It seems two fans of other sides were able to predict the future too, regarding the appointment.

Adkins’ season in charge at United simply did not go very well. A combination of lacklustre performances and players, some of whom were not pulling their weight, as well as some poor tactical choices lead to an 11th placed finish. The Messiah Chris Wilder then arrived and turned out to be the man to take the Blades to the next level.

A nice man in Adkins, but the future is so much brighter without him. He certainly served a purpose, but the Blades are far too good for him these days.
