86 minutes per goal: Why experienced Championship star could seriously improve Sheffield United



There’s a lot of uncertainty around Sheffield United at the moment, particularly the future of manager Chris Wilder who has been linked with the Sunderland job.

However, no matter who is in charge at Bramall Lane next season, they will be looking to push on from their first strong campaign back in the Championship.

Whilst they ultimately came up short in their play-off bid, the Blades put up a good fight and many players in the squad showed that they can cope in the second tier.

Yet, to go to the next level Sheffield United will need an extra bit of quality in key areas of the pitch and one man who would fit the bill is Ross McCormack.

Given his high-profile fallout with Steve Bruce at Aston Villa there’s no doubt that the Scotland international will be allowed to move and maybe in a deal that would suit the Blades.

One worrying aspect would be McCormack’s lack of football but as our graphic shows, he displayed his quality earlier this season when on loan to Melbourne City.

The striker was clinical in front of goal and a major player for the side and at 31-years old he should still have a lot to offer, especially as he was a player that never relied on pace.

When you look at his record at Fulham and Cardiff City over the years it makes a potential move for McCormack a no-brainer for the Blades as they look to improve next season.
