SHEFFIELD UNITED

 

A club whose nickname proudly reflected the city's steel-making tradition are a little off the top of the tree that they seek to return to at some stage.

Initially, the club's nickname was taken from the steel produced in Sheffield and turned into cut-throat razors.  These were the stock tools of the local barbers and the practice of swathing cuts from shaving with crepe bandages gave the club their traditional red and white striped shirts.  It was from this that the nickname of "The Bleeds" was taken and which, in the fullness of time, has been transmogrified into "The Blades" of current usage.
