I’m not sure if the words to end it with were the ideal choice.
In doing his best to try and reduce panic, he may have accidentally generated a little bit more of it.
Blades boss Chris Wilder spoke after the defeat to Manchester United last night, the second time in the space of two games that we’ve conceded three goals, and he admitted that something is clearly wrong at the club. It sure is a far cry from where we were before the Premier League was brought to a halt where we had the second-best defence in the entire division.
In that conference, he talked about how the club needs to find a solution to their problems incredibly quickly, or we could end up falling off a cliff, and whilst we are realistically safe at this stage, a sharp drop in form could spell danger in our hopes for European football.
Do you agree with Chris Wilder's comments?
And Blades fans were quick to respond to Wilder’s words, and they were pretty split on where the blame should be placed.
Already done it. Too much disruption behind the scenes I guess over contracts and interference on team selection to name but 2

I honestly think we've got to be really careful about underestimating how far we've come, and how quickly. Yes, we expect more & love winning but others are also struggling (bar LFC/MC) & we've got to lift the lads. We'll get there!

Let’s be honest it’s not been a great, but we are punching well above of weight all season.
. But if Norwoods goal is given it could have kicked us back to life, I’m expecting a different team to turn up on Sunday. ⚔️⚽️
Wilder will sort it!

I would've took Steven's off but wilder doesnt seem to have faith in players on bench. Why not give Osborn a go

What about you? What do you make of Wilder’s comments about falling off the proverbial cliff?
