“It’s all been a bit of a mess up there in truth.
They have several £20m strikers, parachute payments, so should be minimum top six but appear disorganised.
If the players & Slav didn’t see eye to eye it might help but who knows?
Based on their squad (not results so far) it is a very tough game. “
“Seems odd that don’t see Jokanovic as their long term manager. Looks like they have written this season off and are looking to re-build for next season already, but with enough time for a strong push to the play offs as an upside.”
“Could be useful for us- Heckingbottom not done much post Barnsley, although a new manager bounce is always a problem when facing a club. His first game with us might have been v us in 2018 and after a strong first half by us, we were hanging on by the end.”
“Think this might help us, unexpected, so should cause a bit of chaos behind the scenes.”
“It’ll work in our favour Sunday. Their fans are going to be toxic due to that appointment. Even from a outside view I don’t get why you’d sack a manager that’s had promotions from the championship, One with Fulham where that season they struggled for the first half then got promoted, to Heckingbottom whose not really done a lot.”
“Can’t imagine fans being happy with that appointment.”
“Reeks of a cheap appointment to me and we know how they turn out.”
“Stuart McCall as assistant manager as well. Oh dear. “
“Still baffled they got rid of Wilder, despite their form last year “
“There’s a part of me that wonders whether they’re suffering because they recruited “safely” when they got promoted, i.e. preparing to get relegated….and then they stayed up, started recruiting differently and now left with a squad that peaked in 19/20 and has declined since.”
“Hecking hell ! That’s all we need.
At least, thanks to Derby’s poits deduction, the Blades are unlikely to end up finishing hecking bottom”
“Don’t they realise they’re supposed to get rid only after losing to us – or maybe they don’t want to take the risk of them winning!”
