Bramall Lane: Welcomes back Julian Winter

Winter, 47, a defender with Huddersfield during his playing days and signed by the Blades in 1989, will head the football club's new three-man board alongside director Scott McCabe and chairman David Green in a reshuffle aimed at attracting new investment.

One of the new board's first tasks will be to decide whether to retain Chris Morgan as manager or seek a permanent replacement for former boss Danny Wilson from outside the club.

Winter, chief executive at Bramall Lane for 12 months until September 2012, said: "I'm delighted to be back at the club.

"The changes provide the football club board with a clear and pivotal role in the future running of Sheffield United FC, alongside the PLC board, which will remain."

Retiring football club board members, Chris Steer, Mike Blundell and Ian Cameron will take up roles of vice-president alongside Andrew Laver and Martin Ross.

Kevin McCabe said: "The changes position the football club to attract new investors and leave the board at the operational heart of the organisation.

"Chris, Mike and Ian have new roles and will continue to be very active alongside the other vice-presidents."

Winter, who made 93 appearances for Huddersfield before joining the Blades in 1989, suffered a career-ending knee ligament injury before the start of the 1989/90 season and did not appear for the club.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
