Instead of making ****, hackneyed B movies about 60s gangsters, it’d be more in Sullivan’s line to make a documentary debunking the various myths that abound about the Tevez saga that have damaged the club’s reputation amongst many neutral fans.

Cue The Rise of the Richardsons!

Is that legit or a hack?

What do they mean by “But one thing at this stage of every season is undebatable.......” What is?

I presume the undebatable is referring to promotion & relegation teams that are confirmed.

Sickening behaviour? What am I missing that you two are seeing from the statement????? Am I being blonde here?!?!?

Sheffield Wednesday post that on their Twitter too, the responses are understandably not happy

I wondered if that was the angle. Not sure if BG was being serious or not with his post!?!?

As for our owners doing something like that, they are more than capable, but that cup overflows for me now, not going to let them wind me up anymore, well, that's the plan...

Surely it's more like them congratulating Millwall on getting promoted?

When Colin was promoting his autobiography he came to Wakefield to do a book signing and no one turned up except me - and I only happened to be passing by.
It was worth the £13 to get him to sign his book when I asked if he could dedicate it to 'My mate Carlos'. He didn't bat an eyelid and duly signed. Well worth it.

Sheffield United bosses in High Court battle for club control

The co-owners of newly-promoted Sheffield United have clashed in a High Court battle for control of the Premier League football club.

Kevin McCabe and Prince Abdullah Bin Mosaad Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud each own 50% of the Blades.

The dispute is based on the terms of a buyout provision in the initial investment agreement made between the men in 2013.

The case is expected to last for several weeks.

Mr Justice Fancourt heard Mr McCabe and Prince Abdullah met in 2013 when Mr McCabe was looking for fresh investment in the club.

Sheffield-born Mr McCabe, 71, has invested £100m in the club over many years, according to his barrister.

Prince Abdullah invested £10m in 2013, but the two men "fell out" in 2017.

Sheffield United Ltd, a company controlled by Mr McCabe and his family, has alleged "conspiracy" and "unfairly prejudicial conduct", and wants damages.

UTB LLC, a company controlled by Prince Abdullah, wants declarations in respect of its rights under an investment and shareholders' agreement.

"The court heard of emails in which McCabe's colleague at a property business Jeremy Tutton mentions that he would hate the headline in the Sheffield Star to be "Blades launder money for extremists".

What a cracking idea. UTJ, surely one for the homepage?

Surely this shouldn't be allowed under PL rules.

If i were a team affected by this i'd certainly be looking for a day in court
