“We’re pretty much playing for pride now, let’s see the whole squad showing some rather than dreaming of their summer holidays. When Chris Wilder spurned Charlton by taking over at boyhood club: Sheffield United, many Addicks felt relieved at first with the Blades having a shocking start to the season which saw them in the relegation zone for much of August yet then it all clicked and since then, the Blades have only lost twice in the league with just two defeats at home all season… It seems the Blades have finally come good.”
“Would we be in this position if Chris Wilder had taken the job?
He seems to be doings good job at Sheffield United. Don’t know if he’s spent a lot of dosh or just a good manager? “
“He just sits in his office reading Sheffield United Life because……………………………………THEY HAVE COME GOOD AT LAST!!!!”
“Sheffield Utd isn’t rotten top to bottom. Don’t think he could’ve done anything with the general shit we have to put up with.”
“He obviously has some dignity and didn’t want to work for these clowns.”
“He did pretty well with Oxford and Northampton, so it’s no coincidence he is doing well at Sheff Utd.
It probably helps that he doesn’t talk absolute rubbish all the time and doesn’t make team changes, week in week out.
He strikes me as the type of manager who doesn’t deflect blame on everybody else but himself when they lose as game.”
“I think Chris Wilder used us to negotiate a better wage at Sheffield United. Im not sure that we would be doing much better as he may not have the same control he has at Sheffield United; I imagine he runs the show from top to bottom. Who knows ?”
“Sheff Utd were bottom after four games – he would have been sacked by us and replaced by a Belgian.”
“From his interviews he’s a man that doesn’t hold back so would surely have been sacked as Charlton boss within days of taking over, his scathing assessment of his Blades team when they threw away a win at the Valley earlier in the season is a sigh he doesn’t mess around, nor gloss over performances and it’ll be interesting to see how he fares in the Championship next term.”
“they got the manager & transfer targets we wanted!”
“kr isnt the route but his constant waffle and blaming of players is really starting to grate, roland assembled this team. until he goes we will see no success.”
“Karl’s a disaster, but nobody could make a success of the shambles that the Belgian’s have created.”
“the league table is still troubling me – those games in hand for Port Vale seem to give us a false sense of security.”
“We gave our best performance in months against Bradford and you’re talking about relegation. Come on”
“I feel like we have been perennial slow starters for many years now. Maybe it’s been our lack of a creative midfielder so we can only start to break teams down when the game opens up as players tire.”
“We’ve only lost once this season to a top 6 side”
“We’ll put in a decent performance, but they will just have too much for us.”
“the man to watch out for is the player who has most impressed me at the Valley this term with that being: Mark Duffy… Dominating play, the Addicks only truly got back into the match when he went off injured yet the 31-year old (shocked at his age) who has been around the leagues for a while now will surely prove to be key to either team picking up a result this Saturday.”
“dont mind sheffield united far better supporters than there neighbours over the road, were a freindly bunch when we was up there for the cup.”
