There must be at least a 3rd type - Blades fans who woudn't get an interview for a job as a social researcher?
Think the OP has been sniffing Mel Sterlands 1980's sweaty jockstrap for too long!It seems to me that Blades fans fall into one of 2 categories:
1) The 'Die Hard - In Wilder we trust' type, who say they haven't missed a game in 40 years and smack their old lass around when the Blades lose. They can't see any fault with Chris or what the way Chris' team are playing and would probably lick Chris' shaft clean after he had a go on the said Mrs.
2) The reasonable Blade - This type of Blade can see what a great job Wilder has done, but realise it is time for him to move on.
The form and performances have been absolutely appalling all season and he hasn't done anything about it.
So he plays these same poor players next season, in the same formation that hasn't worked all season and people think we'll come straight back up. His attitude has been disgraceful over the last few months, often acting like a petulant kid.
If he hasn't got the control he feels he deserves, he should have walked with his dignity intact, but it appears to me that he was doing anything he could (interviews/same team/formation) to get the sack and get a nice big payout.
We all live a good story and live him being 'One of our own', but it looks like he just can't cut the mustard at this level. Last season was clearly a fluke, just like the time Ipswich got into Europe.
Stop all the moaning and groaning and let's move forward.
A change is what's needed for the good of the club and everyone involved.
