Former Swindon Town forward Sam Parkin could not hold back his excitement when discussing Sheffield United and their quest for European football.
Chris Wilder’s side are just two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and, with fifth place possibly becoming a Champions League spot following Manchester City’s European competition ban, it is really starting to look like they could do something special this season.
Speaking on The Totally Football Show podcast (17/02/2020), Parkin said: “It’s going to be fascinating! I suppose we’re all going to be just waiting to see if Sheffield United can maintain this outstanding form.”
Indeed, with the race for Champions League football so fierce, it really will be fascinating to see if Sheffield United can go all the way. And looking at the teams around them, Wilder and his men will surely fancy their chances.
The likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have been nowhere near consistent enough this term, with the Blues winning just three of their last 10 games following that 2-0 defeat to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at Stamford Bridge.
Will Sheffield United qualify for the Champions League?
When you consider that, it is probably fair to say that the Blades are firmly in contention.
