So, it’s very much been the elephant in the room the past few days.

The fact that there seems to be a slight bit of dissent sneaking into proceedings at Bramall Lane. I wouldn’t say it’s ‘toxic’, far from it, and nor should it be given the rise that the club has been on in the past few years.

But there’s no smoke without fire, and there’d be no reason for Chris Wilder to chirp off the way that he did if there wasn’t something there to provoke him.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of tonight’s game with Manchester United, the Blades boss didn’t hold back when talking about Sheffield United’s past two games, which saw them claim only one point and come under severe criticism from the supporters in the process.

“I’ll let supporters discuss if we’re a disgrace or diabolical and let everybody down. Or if we’re allowed a performance or two in three years that’s not up to the mark.”

Do you agree with Chris Wilder's comments?





The thing is though, and this is something that the fans brought upthe fans brought up in relation to Oliver Norwood’s comments on the matter, it’s not the fact that the team lost, that we can handle. It’s the way that the club performed in the game, especially against Newcastle.

Take a look at all three goals and you can see plenty of basic errors that could and should have been eradicated to prevent them, and given how close the battle is for European football, we can’t afford to be giving games away like that.

So fans have every right to criticise those kinds of displays, but that doesn’t mean we’re totally ungrateful for where the club are and the journey we’ve gone on.

What about you? Do you agree with Wilder’s comments on the matter?

  • its no good saying ”We are ready” when quite clearly we are not at the races or ”AT IT” as Wilder would say.
    Ok we have been spoilt by always achieving for the last 3 years more than expected but the more effort you put in the more you get out and Wilders sides have always done that.
    Howerver,a good run has to come to an end and no matter how many times you fall you have to stand up and get back on the horse !!!
    A lack of creativity and scoring chances is a worry no matter what position you are in in the league.
    This is a must win against ManU if we want to play in Europe whether we deserve to or not we still have that slender chance and hope the boys can pull it off.
