Everyone at Sheffield United is pulling in the same direction despite struggling at the bottom of the Premier League this season.

That is according to former Blades star Michael Brown who, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, lifted the lid on the mood around Bramall Lane after chatting to Chris Wilder before the FA Cup tie against Plymouth.

The Yorkshire outfit currently sit bottom of the top-flight table with just five points from their opening 19 games of the campaign.

Three of those points come in their one and only win came at home against Newcastle United earlier this month and they are now 12 points adrift of safety.

However, Brown revealed there was no sense of disharmony around the football club and suggested Wilder had everybody’s full backing despite the disappointing results.

Brown told Football Insider: “I spoke to him before the game and to be honest, I had a chat with him for once without talking much football, we had a bit of a giggle and laugh away from it. That’s the truth.

“Chris just loves the football club and he just obviously wants to get as many results, he wears his heart on his sleeve and he’s just desperate to get results for the club.

“It’s a proper, great family club where everybody is on the same page and you won’t often get that, you go to a lot of clubs and it’s not often like that but here, everybody’s on the same page which is great.” 

The Blades have two difficult fixtures against both high-flying Manchester sides before a home tie against relegation rivals West Brom at the start of February.

Wilder has been at Bramall Lane since 2016 and is contracted to the club until 2024 after signing a new deal last January.
