Sheffield United V Relegation

Recommended Posts

.... but good performance again.  Soon, something will drop for us and we'll start on a good run of picking up points.  Have faith!

Before the season started I thought it was 3 from 4. Fulham for me are certs, West Brom not far behind them, so I reckon it's between united and Burnley and I honestly think united will start winning soon. A couple of wins will make all the difference. Did they say on TV today that their next game is at WBA? They nearly got a point today which would have been an injustice to WHU but it could have happened.

I think Brighton and Newcastle just have a little bit too much for the others but you never know.

WBA is surely 3 points. West ham have picked up this season but not really any excuse next game, they are surely certs for relegation and beating them will give the players a confidence boost.

Bloody frustrating again.  Following from the BBC website. 

 

"We have earned the right to be here and have to do some things pretty quickly to stay in it and protect our status as a Premier League club," said Wilder, whose side were ninth at the same stage last term.

"There's a long way to go. Without being disrespectful to some of the places this football club has had to go, it is no good taking a backwards step and feeling sorry for yourself."

 

Got to agree with him but here's a stat we could do without. 

 

Sheffield United have become the third side in Premier League history to pick up just one point (or fewer) from their opening nine games in a season, after Manchester City in 1995-96 and Sheffield Wednesday in 1999-00 (both sides relegated).

Wilder has said Sharp is more important as captain now he's not in match day squad.

 

Has he lost the plot?

I thought it was a pretty poor performance, the Hammers have started the season ok nothing earth shattering and they never looked in bother,  United are toothless in attack and the defence is all at sea, troubling times and many fans surprisingly questioning CW on Twitter tonight.

I fear this also steved32...

 

Like I have said in previous posts no-one should be bigger than the club....

 

Staying in the Premier league is a must and games need to be won saying that they put in a good performance is not good enough winning games and points is what is needed.....

 

I think CW has done a cracking job so far but its looking like the job has become too big for him....

But who's around that could replace CW?   If the job has become to big for CW, who's available that has Premiership experience? 

 

Only ones I can think of, (only because he got a brief mention in relation to the SWFC job),  are Sven-Göran Eriksson or Sam Allerdyce? 

 

I'm still sticking with CW but obviously it's not down to me.

I can't see that this is even a consideration - in CW we trust.  He'll sort it out!

I've said before you don't really know what the chairman will be like in bad times. Might he panic about dropping out of the premiership and get rid. I don't think he would and if he did it would be madness, the premiership isn't the be all end all and I don't think the majority of fans would be happy about Wilder getting sacked.

A win against West brom and you'll be either out of or close to being out of the relegation spots, after that the results could start being more positive than negative.

The bad form stretches back to the end of last season, they look totally devoid of confidence.

 

The big issue is how much the chairman needs the PL money, if it doesn't look CW can turn around the current malaise he may pull the trigger.

Serious question :

Do any Blades on here want Chris Wilder sacked ?

Even after 11 defeats in the last 12 games its a big NO from me.
