The 39-year-old, linked with the manager's job at Kilmarnock earlier this summer, acted as assistant to former caretaker boss Chris Morgan at Bramall Lane at the end of last season before the appointment of David Weir.

"On behalf of the club, I'd like to sincerely thank David for his efforts and wish him well for the future," Blades chief executive Julian Winter told the club's official website.

"Our academy is a major part of the football club and is quickly adapting to meet the needs of the club going forward."

Former defender Unsworth, who counts Everton, West Ham, Aston Villa and Portsmouth among his former clubs, spent 18 months as a United player until January 2007 and returned to the club's Shirecliffe academy last season.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
