He lives and breathes Blades, the fans appreciated it (past tense) but now two defeats make him in to a goon.
Get real, give it a bit of patience, and the Blades will be alright.
There's some quality in the side, and Wilder will only add to it, and take nothing from it (if finances allow).[/B].
Hi hots, hope you are well, Could"nt agree with you more, they are sharpening the knifes them blades, 2 more defeats and Wilder out will be the cry.. Just the nature of the game I suppose.. Having said that I fear blades will struggle this campaign, but no fault of CW.

I'm fine Padders.
Struggle is not in Wilder's itinerary.
Top ten, I'd say, is nailed on.
Top 6 wouldn't surprise me one jot.
Top 2 wouldn't surprise me.
As I said 2 years ago when United were promoted, a Manager, a No. 2, a first 11, the backup players, fans, coaching staff, dinner ladies and ball boys all pulling in one direction, all fighting for each other, and having the right ATTITUDE, are bound to prevail in the end.
Wilder instils that attitude club wide, and therefore, will excel once again.
If all those attributes prove to be good enough, then deep joy will ensue.
If they fall a bit short, then it's 'stand by your beds'.

I reckon the Blades fans will be proud of their players once again this season.

I still maintain we have the better players, the better experience, and should have the better expectations.
The one thing really bothering me (again) is the language 'problem' and the perceived ambition of each individual player.
Has JL the motivational where withall to cement good team ethics?
I doubt it, but I live in hope.

Can"t argue with that Hots, but I will stick with my pre season prediction..
blades to struggle, and Owls to make the top (ahem) 6.

Can't believe CW is getting stick.
Well you know how fickle football fans are.In the promotion year they lost the first four matches on the trot.I remember the fans saying what a load of garbage O'Connell was which at first he was giving away penalties and scoring own goals but look at him now Prem clubs putting in big bids for him.The same moans are now being aimed at our new center back,give the lad a chance is all I am saying.If he is still not cutting the mustard in 2 or 3 months time then have a go but be patient with him give him a chance.As for having a go at Wilder well words fail me ,His judgement has been A1 far better than anyone on here ,you might question his thoughts but please the man has been brilliant you do not know what he is thinking ,it might at times puzzle you but let him do it his way.I to wonder at his thinking like all fans might but he usually ends up being right.

Last season was a start of 1 win and 2 losses too.

I don't see us swinging it round like we did last season though,
