That being said, there is quite a sad stat... this is the first time we've gone consecutive games without losing (in all competitions) since January, beating Plymouth in the Cup 2-1 then Man United in the league 2-1.
Tickets probably pay about a third of our wages.
Think you have to go down a few leagues before voting with your wallet really makes a huge dent.
What did they do to Knill? They paid him to do fuck all (gardening leave) and then he went and got another job. It's not like they had him cleaning the bogs.
Is it only us who can fucking see this!We are crying out for 2 central midfielders. Norwood and Fleck were awesome during the rise, but have been terrible for 18 months.
Replace these two and possibly Baldock (who I like but is regressing), and I think we're close. Probably need a keeper too, as I had high hopes for Verrips.
Defence ok, wingbacks ok, strikers - impossible to judge as they never get any chances. It's centre mid that's the problem and we all know it. Get two more in here, along with Ndiaye (?), Freeman and possibly Brunt, bin Norwood and Fleck and we are competitive again.
We need some new blood but imo we are not far off.
The issue is the engine room for us it’s just not there we’re playing ok but the legs and creativity have just drained out of fleck and Norwood (it’s not just this season but last year also) and that means we’re creating literally nothing. We might have a few more points bypassing them and playing kick and rush but in the grand scheme of things we wouldn’t be any better off.From an outsiders perspective, I'm struggling to see how Wilder cops the blame for employing a manager who's methods are a bad fit for your current squad.
You've got players who had Forest nowhere near the relegation zone when they were with us, and better players in the squad to boot. A manager who's a better fit wouldn't have you anywhere near the bottom 3, even with no additions.
We were complemented for our style by pundits everywhere, only 18 months ago. You repeatedly typing this nonsense doesn’t make it any more correct.Too right, for us to get a player to fit into what ever our system is £23,000,000 is about £23,000,000 too much.
We like donkeys at this club, only donkeys can succeed with the only "style" of play that we can make work
I wouldn't watch this lot against Peterborough if you bought me a ticket and sat me on Cameron Diaz's knee.
You wouldn't be spending your hard earned cash. You said you wouldn't go if the ticket was bought for you.Why should I spend my hard earned cash watching a bunch of tossers who don't care
Get sudden up front with sharp!The fact of the matter is, this club is currently lacking even the slightest modicum of leadership.
The board are silent, they certainly aren't physically present in and around Sheffield, they aren't interfacing with the fans and they aren't communication their intentions or ambitions, for this next week, or the season ahead or the medium-term.
In Wilder we had a man who some argue had too much influence but that's because he'd managed us from a lower league position, in a lower league way, to lower league success. He spoke, regularly and frankly and openly.
Now, Slav hasn't had time to get his feet under the desk. He also isn't being given the backing and resource to steer the ship he wants it to go, he doesn't have the resources to be able to lead us. That isn't his fault.
But yet again, the leadership is absent and lacking. The lack of steer is horrifying - financially, strategically, tactically, communicatively. It's all incredibly poorly done.
I'm watching the Sunderland til I die Netflix documentary as I type this, and we feel on a fast-track to that level of farce.
So the board need to be present, visible and in communication with the fans.
They need to outline their hopes and ambitions. They need to outline the resources available (to Slav, not expecting that to us) and they need to show backing and some ambition.
Either that, or the free-fall will be sudden and sharp.
You'd be better sat on the knee of David Cameron, he'd fit in with the rest of the useless cunts at the lane!I wouldn't watch this lot against Peterborough if you bought me a ticket and sat me on Cameron Diaz's knee.
Engine room, fuck me we need a new engine!The issue is the engine room for us it’s just not there we’re playing ok but the legs and creativity have just drained out of fleck and Norwood (it’s not just this season but last year also) and that means we’re creating literally nothing. We might have a few more points bypassing them and playing kick and rush but in the grand scheme of things we wouldn’t be any better off.
