At no time in my 40 years of covering Sheffield football has the Blades team and supporters been closer together than in Wilder’s first two seasons. These days they talk of “products”, “projects” and “makeovers.” But this is the story of a club being taken by the scruff of the neck and given a damn good shake down. Most remarkable of all, it all shaped up so quickly. But it was no accident. It took a manager of special powers to rejuvenate Bramall Lane almost overnight. Read on. Strongly recommended.

A story that deserves to be told - and Danny Hall is the perfect writer to capture it brilliantly.
- Daniel Taylor, The Guardian
I'm incredibly impressed with what Chris Wilder is achieving at our club... Danny Hall's book can't fail to impress either.
- Keith Edwards, former United striker
Hope the book bombs.

The story of how Chris Wilder transformed a club on its knees is well documented. Or at least you may have thought it was before reading ‘He’s one of our own’, Danny Hall’s herculean and fascinating account of Wilder's Sheffield United story. A fascinating behind-the-scenes insight illuminated by exclusive contributions from some of the leading actors. Not least Wilder himself. And, in an unusual departure, personal perspectives from Blades fans. An extraordinary read for any Blades fan who has experienced United under an extraordinary manager.
