    Good to hear

    Chris Wilder's comment on the Blade's loss

    "Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder said he will not "applaud, credit or reward" his players for effort alone after their home defeat by Leicester"

    PW would gave said" I was proud of the lads for their effort"

    Wrong or not?

    I'm guessing that in preparation for the game he kept saying something to the defence like "Keep close to Vardy, if you give him any space he will run straight past you"... and what happened? We could have been a couple of goals down in first few minutes at Burton for similar reasons, but luckily the finishing wasn't as good by the opposition... Warney can't drop anybody, because we haven't got any replacement defenders who are fit to play

    Warne is always proud of the lads as long as they've done their best, paternal.

    Wilder was spot on. Canít be doing with all this Mamby pamby protective s.hite when theyíve played bad.

    Wilderís no mug. He has the next best record for wins behind Guardiola, for the last two seasons. You donít get those results being luvvie duvvie with your boys.

    I think the difference is that PW knew that we couldn't really play any better in the cship so he gave the players credit for putting in the effort they did.

    Wilder probably thinks the Blunts can play better hence why he won't commend that performance. I don't think they'll Be able to up their game much and they haven't played any of the big guns yet. Hopefully they'll end up in the bottom three very soon.

    Iíve got loads of time for Wilder. The week after Henderson had a great game at NYS he made a mistake against Villa. Wilder just said. ďHeís a big boy and if heís big enough to take plaudits then he he can take the criticism thatís coming his wayĒ
    I once heard him on football heaven saying ď if the fans arenít happy then they can always stay at home.Ē
    Him, Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe are brilliant.
    But you just need to have been a good player like Lampard to walk straight into the big jobs.

    Itís probably more to do with someone willing to work there under a transfer ban.
    Club legend or not, heíll be sacked when theyíre not winning anything.

    A lot of our posters would certainly like the straight talking approach of openly criticising the player's when they've not done well. The same approach to the fans "if they aren't happy they can stay at home" presumably in response to the fans openly criticising him or the players, would send the same posters into meltdown

    That’s the trouble with Warney he lives with the bubble fans

    I don’t expect him to slate players but he certainly shouldn’t say they gave them heir all when they clearly didn’t

    Don’t take fans for fools

    Didnít Evans criticise the supporters ?
    He got stick for it.
    Stubbs criticised the fans he got stick for it.

    Warne lives in the real world unfortunately thatís not good enough for the suicide squad on here. 😉

    Wilder recruited the players. Maybe he thinks they are better,. Maybe they are punching above there level. Criticism after 3 games will not help his cause. Pressure shows and when a man like wilder who calls a spade a spade opens his mouth, will expect a response. As mentioned the opening fixtures have been kind to the blades. Give it 7 more games n wilder will know if his squad is good enough as he won't have enough to spend in January to dig em out of a hole

    What's this obsession with these "bubble people in this bubble world" ?
    And obviously no fans are fools, not on here anyway.

    Mentions bubble fans all the time. Iíve been watching football for over 40 years and got no idea what it means.

    Wilder was obviously targeting his comments at the macho-hit-em-in-the-balls-get-to-the-game-five-minutes-before

    -it-starts-because-I've-got-5-pints-to-sink-first-hate-women-footy-commentators-cos-it's-a-man's-game type of supporters.

    Warney is just a bit more up-to-date in his approach.

    Not so much hairdryer more a gentle breeze of incense laden air.
