Well, we know that he’s not someone who’s afraid to speak his mind.

And I doubt he’s going to get into any sort of ‘official’ trouble for this, but even so it’s not exactly the ideal response, because at this stage it just sounds like he’s coming across as a bit of a sore loser, even if he does have a point.

Speaking after Sheffield United’s late loss to Arsenal yesterday, Blades boss Chris Wilder wasn’t too happy about one aspect of the Gunners’ gameplan. One of the big turning points in the game was when the visitors were awarded a penalty after a foul by Chris Basham on Alexandre Lacazette.

Now whilst there was undoubtedly some contact in the incident, the way the Arsenal player went down trying to ‘sell the contact’ wasn’t exactly fitting with the initial contact, and Wilder was having none of it.

“There was no invitation for any of those boys in yellow to go over. Maybe I need to change my teams approach. We stay on our feet and being honest and it’s not really working for us.”

Do you agree with Chris Wilder's comments?





Comments which led to a flurry of responses from Blades fans afterwards.

What about you? What do you make of Wilder’s comments?

  • If your carthorses didn’t kick players instead of the ball, you wouldn’t have anything to moan about.

    • What is evident is that arsenal are a really poor team that will resort to any tactic to get a result. There used to be respect for a good honest arsenal side but unfortunately the extent that exaggerate and roll around after the slightest tap demonstrates that all ethics have left the Emirates.

  • Thing is even though the Arse have cant win fare & square diving everywhere on the pitch rolling around to waste time and to get opposition players booked.That is the Arse team we all know & hate LOL
