Sheffield United were the forst ever futbaall club to be caalled 'United' in 1889 when they were formed!----However!, there were 2 other clubs in the city of Sheffield at the time, namely 'The Wednesday' formed in 1867 (Later Sheffield Wednesday) and Sheffield FC formed in 1857, who are the oldest futbaall club in the world!
In other words Sheffield wasn't 'United'!
NUFC were the 2nd club to be caalled 'United' in 1892 followin the amalgamation of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End!
This meeenz that NUFC were the forst truly 'United' futbaall club in the world!
Man United were originally caalled Newton Heath and didnt change their name to Man United til 1902---10 years after us! (see the above match 'card' from wor home game against them on New Years Day in 1897!)
Of course there woz another club in Manchester caalled Ardwick who later changed their name to Man City!
In other words Manchester wasn't 'United' eeethaaa!
Yet their fans and the media arrogantly caall them simply 'United', much to the annoyance of aall clubs with 'United' in their titles!
NEWCASTLE UNITED FC THE FORST 'TRUE' 'UNITED'
