Premier League manager set to be sacked in the next 24 hours – Various

According to widespread reports this morning, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder looks all set to be sacked.

This comes from The Times, The Mail, talkSPORT and the BBC, with it reported Wilder will meet with the club’s hierarchy today to agree the terms of his departure.

The Blades boss will leave with Sheffield United rock bottom of the Premier League on just 14 points.

That said, his five years at Bramall Lane have been a huge success and incredible story,taking them from League One hopefuls to 9th in the Premier League last season.

With our final home game of the season seeing us take on Sheffield United, it will be interesting to see who will be in the opposition dugout come mid-May.

It’s understood that Paul Heckingbottom – their U-23 coach – is now set to take charge for Sheffield United’s trip to Leicester this weekend.

In truth, I’d far rather have Chris Wilder in charge on Tyneside? After all, he’s actually a good man manager and has some idea on tactics…

  1. Has he really got any idea on tactics though Olly !!!! Last season he took everyone by surprise how they play, this season teams have found them out, and he hasn’t been able to find a new way to play.

    They have scored less and conceded more than us so I’m not thinking it’s an upgrade on coaching if he were to replace Bruce.

    Bruce needs to go but not to be replaced by someone equally as bad.

    I’m saying he has ‘some’ idea on tactics – which is better than Bruce as he has zero from what we’ve seen.

    Wilder wouldn’t be my first choice, far from it, but he’s better than Bruce IMO. He’s proven that by getting a team 9th who would’ve gone down at the first time of asking under Bruce.
