John Harris’s arrival at Bramall Lane laid the foundations for the appearance of some of the greatest players in Sheffield United’s history. In his second full season in charge, the Blades were promoted back to the First Division.

Ain’t Got a Barrel of Money is the story of Harris and those who came after him, building a team that would challenge for a place in Europe, the decline that followed and the inevitable sale of many of the club’s finest players.

In 1975, they finished sixth in Division One, playing some of the most exciting football in the country. Currie, Woodward, Colquhoun, Speight, Hemsley and Badger were all household names. But within six years Sheffield United had gone from the brink of greatness to the ultimate humiliation – relegation to the Fourth Division, for the first and only time in the club’s wonderful history.

Filled with anecdotes and memories from many of those who were there, both on the field and on the terraces, this book captures the highs and lows of being a Sheffield United fan.
