The Blades entered the run-in last season as favourites for automatic promotion, but ended up missing out altogether after losing to Huddersfield on penalties and Wilson is hoping his players will have overcome that disappointment in time for the start of the new campaign.

"I was asked similar questions last year following relegation," said Wilson. "Was there going to be a hangover after we went down into League One and I couldn't answer the question until the first game of last season.

"But certainly looking at the way the boys have come in and the attitude they've shown already, it looks like it's going to be similar to last year when they were very determined to get off to a good start and get a good season under their belt.

"But I'll only know when the season starts."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
