|Two bloody relegations, yes I said TWO!!
As the most eye catching clash of this round of the Capital One Cup draws ever-closer, plans for many fans have been scuppered by a health alert advising Blades fans to protect their mental well being by avoiding the psychologically-treacherous encounter.
While Hammers fans practise a variety of hilarious taunts and rehearse other forms of healthy banter to 'engage' their Northern visitors, top sports psychobabbleologist - Dr Hansi Von Stressbasher - has warned that Sheffield United fans are almost certainly facing into a psychologically-humiliating encounter as they take on the Premiership big boys. Dr Von Stressbludgeoner who is a certified mindlessness therapist, has pointed out that the Blades are not even a second rate outfit as they in fact inhabit the third tier of English football.

"The Blades had a useful little run in the cup last year", he offered in a more than slightly patronising tone, "but this is a decent West Ham side who actually have something to play for and will want to keep their intelligent fans both highly amused and entertained".
West Ham have no particular injury problems to report amongst their expansive and highly talented squad. In contrast, having squandered the Tevez gazzillions, tragic Sheffield United are down to the bare bones.
