Hi mate, sorry I've not been active recently, I've been busy. There are a few updates we need to make such as the Adidas kit for next season, round off the season, missing out on play offs, Maguire in League One team of the year, new contracts being offered to Maguire, Flynn and Hill, United making contact with Ched Evans ect. I'll find some time tomorrow evening to help you make these updates if you want? Then we need to prepare making next season's article which we can sandbox to be going on with. Regards IJA (talk) 19:25, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

I was going to post about this on the Blades taskforce page - I've set up a sandbox and some articles for the new season and the juniors that have been on the bench so that we can start the articles now rather than trying to do them in a rush once they make a league appearance. They are here: Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Sheffield United task force/New articles - if we edit them like any other article when stuff comes up in the press then nothing will get lost and we can move them into the main space when ready. I've set up links for some others but I think we should leave them unitl they at least get a bench place otherwise we could be left with a bunch of unused articles. As for the stuff you mention - the kit needs to go in the next season article, as do any new contracts when they're signed, as for the contact with Evans I'm not sure it's notable at the moment as its not clear what has actually gone on apart from some press speculation - I think we should leave it until something concrete happens. We can make start on the other articles though.Bladeboy1889 (talk) 19:53, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Awesome mate, I'll get to work on them soon-ish. Also, I've kind broke reference 7 on Harry Maguire, could you fix it please? I can't haha IJA (talk) 21:08, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Miller, Freeman and Davies[edit]

Miller signed a two year deal with the option of a third year, we've chosen not to activate the third year in his contract. Freeman and Davies signed outside the normal transfer window and in the emergency loan window so the can only stay for a maximum of 93 days. Regards IJA (talk) 08:32, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Good points - I see the retained list is out if you want to update (I'm at work so a bit busy) - we should try and 'round up' their time at the Blades. I think we should take Porter off the squad for now as I get the feeling he may well leave anyway. Bladeboy1889 (talk) 09:56, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Selahattin Baki[edit]

Think he's notable enough to have his own article? We could even mention his gang related past? IJA (talk) 12:40, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Hmm - not sure if the wikipolice won't shout notability at you I'm afraid. If you can find a couple more articles about him somewhere to back it up then I'd say give it a go. Bladeboy1889 (talk) 14:56, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Will do at some point mate but I'm off to the pub shortly haha. IJA (talk) 16:30, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Players who left before the end of the season[edit]

It seems to be missing from 2013–14 Sheffield United F.C. season#Squad. IJA (talk) 17:49, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Leeds meetup[edit]

Hi mate, I don't know if you're aware but there is a wikimedia meet up in Leeds this Saturday (14 June) if you're interested. Hopefully you can make it. Regards IJA (talk) 17:07, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Nick Blackman[edit]

I have been asked to remove and update certain personal and some incorrect information about Nick Blackman's early life and history. This is why I removed them. Please can you revert it back to how I altered it. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to message me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dolly59 (talkcontribs) 08:54, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

WP is based on published and verifiable content not what people may or may not want to include for personal reasons. The article in the Jewish Chronicle clearly states Blackman's heritage and his historical appearance in the Maccabiah games. There is a picture of him so there is no ambiguity about who the article is referring to. Therefore it is factual content based on reliable published sources and there is no reason to remove it unless you can provide sources that refute it. I appreciate you are a newcomer to Wikipedia but the site just doesn't work like that. Thanks Bladeboy1889 (talk) 09:36, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Away kit[edit]

Good news, I got some Mexican bloke to make the away kit for the article. [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]. One problem, I can't seem to add it to the article properly. Can you help out mate? IJA (talk) 17:19, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorted it now. IJA (talk) 17:31, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure the arms are correct, might need some HTML magic to sort it out. IJA (talk) 17:36, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Good work - I'd done the home one and was going to work on the away one but work is taking up all of my time at the moment. Agree that the sleeves might need a bit of work as they don't quite match but it'll do for now. I'll have a look at it in the next week or so. Then there's just all of the historic kits to do as well... Bladeboy1889 (talk) 11:00, 31 July 2014 (UTC)


What can be done to get the last two seasons (13-14 and 12-13) up to GA status? Regards IJA (talk) 09:19, 4 August 2014 (UTC)


You were right over the captain mate Shef Star. Sorry for being so hasty. Regards IJA (talk) 22:08, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Good articles Future GAN Backlog Drive[edit]

Hello everyone! Hope you've all been having a great summer!

TheQ Editor recently proposed the idea of having another Backlog Drive in either September/October or November/December of this year. For those of you who have participated in the past two drives you know I was the one who organized them, however, come September, this will be my most important year in school so I will not be able to coordinate this drive (if it happens). TheQ Editor has volunteered to be a coordinator for the drive. If any of you would like to co-coordinator, please notify TheQ Editor on his talk page.

If you would be interested in participating in a Backlog Drive sometime before the end of this year, please notify TheQ Editor. Also, make sure to specify what month(s) work best for you.

At the time this message was sent out, the backlog was at 520 nominations. Since May, the backlog has been steadily increasing and we are currently near an all time high. Even though the backlog will not disappear over one drive, this drive can lead to several others which will (hopefully) lead to the day where there is no longer a backlog.

As always, the more participants, the better, and everyone is encouraged to participate!

Chris Basham[edit]

His table is a mess and doesn't add up. Not only that, everything is in the wrong order with season coming before club. Also I'm unable to add a total for Bolton. It is a mess. HELP! IJA (talk) 12:45, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Also Doyle's table seems incomplete and I'm struggling to figure out where it is wrong. I only get him making 51 appearances least season but soccerbase has 52. IJA (talk) 12:52, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
It might also be worth mentioning that McGinn's table is a piece of s*** too. IJA (talk) 13:09, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Am on holiday at the moment. I'll have a look in the next few weeks and try and tidy up a lot of the player pages. Bladeboy1889 (talk) 20:20, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

GA Cup[edit]

Hello everyone! We hope you have all been having a great summer!

As we all know, the recent GAN Backlog Drives have not had any big impact on the backlog. Because of that, me (Dom497), Figureskatingfan, and TheQ Editor have worked on an idea that could possibly finally put a dent into the massive backlog. Now, I will admit, the idea isn't entirely ours as we have took the general idea of the WikiCup and brought it over to WikiProject Good Articles. But anyways, here's what we have in mind:

For all of you that do not know what the WikiCup is, it is an annual competition between several editors to see who can get the most Good Articles, Featured Article's, Did You Know's, etc. Based of this, we propose to you the GA Cup. This competition will only focus on reviewing Good articles.

For more info on the proposal, click here. As a FYI, the proposal page is not what the final product will look like (if you do go ahead with this idea). It will look very similar to WikiCup's page(s).

The discussion for the proposal will take place here. Please let us know if you are interested, have any concerns, things to consider, etc.

WikiProject Good Articles - GA Cup[edit]

WikiProject Good Articles's 2014-15 GA Cup
Symbol support vote.svg

WikiProject Good articles is holding a new competition, the GA Cup, from October 1, 2014 - March 28, 2015. The Cup will be based on reviewing Good article nominations; for each review, points will be awarded with bonuses for older nominations, longer articles and comprehensive reviews. All participants will start off in one group and the highest scoring participants will go through to the second round. At the moment six rounds are planned, but this may change based on participant numbers.

Some of you may ask: what is the purpose for a competition of this type? Currently, there is a backlog of about 500 unreviewed Good article nominations, almost an all time high. It is our hope that we can decrease the backlog in a fun way, through friendly competition.

Everyone is welcome to join; new and old editors! Sign-ups will be open until October 15, 2014 so sign-up now!

If you have any questions, take a look at the FAQ page and/or contact one of the four judges.

Cheers from NickGibson3900, Dom497, TheQ Editor and Figureskatingfan.
