Wilder to leave?

Go on then, why is that?, this is a manager who has never been sacked in his career, how many managers in English football can say that?

 

He has proved time and time again that he can do the business with any club he is managing.

 

Took us out of League One in top position with 100 points at his first attempt.

 

Had us in first place in the Championship for a time in his first stint, when was the last time an SWFC fan could say that?, There are lads of legal drinking age (and older) who have never seen that club in the top spot.

 

Right down to the final day of this season, there was a chance of us getting promoted in first place, but second place it was, and I am fine with that.

 

He is (quite rightly) on everyone's radar right now.  A team that scored more goals than just about anyone else and had more clean sheets than anyone else and the most expensive player was 4 million quid, not much in today's market.

 

It's taken us 12 years to get back to the top flight,  as a club, but only three as far as our  time with Chris Wilder at the helm. 

Law of probability. Only 3 options, sacked, leaves for bigger job/more money, or spends the rest of his career at the lane.

Well you are right someday he will leave every one leaves their job sometime but right now he is our man so we should enjoy the ride while we have him.He is in my opinion the best british manager around so he is bound to be in demand ,if he was not in demand obviously he would not be as good at his job as he is.He is a winner the only thing that could put a spanner in the works is this court case and if the outcome is not to his liking .Both parties involved in the court case say they want to sell the club and if the rumours are to be believed they have someone waiting in the wings to take over.So it sounds that Wilder will have a new gaffer who ever wins the case.I just hope they understand what a gem they have with Wilder and they look after him.

What do you think the board would do if United found themselves say 8 points adrift in bottom 3 come January ? Throw money at it ? Change the manager in a panic move ? 

 

Huddersfield kind of just accepted it but should be better for it in terms of their finances. Whereas Fulham spent millions

Based on what....??

 

It's the same "discontent" that existed ALL of last season and how did that work out?. You all act as though this is all new, when the truth of the matter is that this has been going on for at least 2-3 seasons.

 

Wilder has been given a budget and he is content to lead the team that he loves, in the best league in the world.

 

The court case won't go on for much longer and it is of no detriment to the team, because McCabe is digging deep and funding the summer transfers. None of this hinders Wilder or the squad....just like it didn't last year!.....Okay he doesn't get a crazy budget, but he gets a healthy budget! His plan being to strengthen the core squad... He is well in line with what he wants! Of course he would probably like a bit more, but the initial £20m is a good starting point....

 

Literally clutching at straws time and time again on this board...... Concentrate on your own clubs! Seriously.....

Yawn, you lot are seriously boring us. 

 

Have you anything factual at all? Other than clutching at straws?..... It is all pretty much clear cut and hasn't impacted us in the slightest. All these predictions and theories that you lot concoct....None of which had turned out to be the case. 

 

Concentrate on your own Championship (FFP restricted) team......Leave the achievers alone!

Odd thread, there's been a dispute between the two Blades owners for the best part of two years. Chris Wilder won't be leaving this summer.

I wouldn't think he's over flush with money at the moment (not saying he's skint) and he may succumb to that big pay day if it's on offer to set him up for life.

Without a doubt, it's going to be an interesting season for both clubs. His personal bargaining power will plummet by the end of the season, he could well go for the big pay day while his stock is at a high. All conjecture of course.

Bash street, why are you putting yourself through all this ? Accept it, what's happened has happened.

Have you been following it? Just managed to avoid insolvency, Prince can't remember where he got £1m from, Ched Evans returned cos' McCabe wanted him back (I thought I detected a bit of dissent in Wilders view at the time).

 

Wilder must be having thoughts of quitting wouldn't you think?

 

Talk about washing your dirty linen in public.

Difficult to say being United I can not say they will throw money at it and I can not see them wanting to change the manager either.If they wish to throw money at it it needs throwing now because I feel they need to spend 30 to 40 million to up grade the team 20 mill I feel is not enough but we do have Wilder who is brilliant at getting bargains and managing money.He really gets his monies worth out of players but we are premier league now and maybe we are asking to much of him to turn the Blades into a premier league outfit for 20 mill.It is a fine line between spending to much like Fulham have done and spending enough to keep in the top flight.Having said that we do have a manager who I and most Blades fans trust and I feel even if we come back down Wilder would not be blamed.Personally I prefer the Championship anyway but I realise I am in the minority.

I don't think Wilder will want to change too much and he'll give the players that got you up a fair crack of the whip, obviously there will be additions but I don't expect any big money signings, for the record I think United will hold there own in the Prem as they will surprise a few teams, with big money dominating the Prem anything between 7th and lower mid table can be seen as a reasonable season.

 

Its not for me either but many seem to covet it.
