Blades manager under pressure

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder accepts he is under pressure fearing he could face the sack for the first time.

The Blades boss has never been sacked in 19 years as a manager and led his boyhood club to ninth on their Premier League return last season.

In their second season, Sheffield United have failed to win any of their opening eight games.

But I think people have to take things into perspective and be realistic. It is after eight games, and the fixtures we have played, especially recently, have not been too kind.

‘You put yourself under enormous pressure and I put my staff under pressure to deliver and my players. We have to get on with it and try and impact what we can.

‘There’s no getting away from it, it’s not the start that we wanted.

‘But we have to recognise it will be a different season to last season. It poses different challenges for us and ones that we are ready to tackle.’

The Hammers face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane at 2 pm this afternoon hoping to heap more pressure on the manger

  1. Got to say having seen that Antonio didn’t even make the bench am a lot less confident and Sheffield Utd have their full first team available. Think Lawrenson may be right and Soucek and Rice may get overrun by a team that is much more rested than ours. Fingers crossed am worried about nothing, either way COYI!!!

  2. To be completely honest I think Moyes is under more pressure than any Premieship manager. Our fan base is and are the most critical and difficult fan base to please .

  3. Well we did it, what a strike from Haller who was a lot more mobile than previous weeks, all we need to do now is make better passing decisions in the final third, when we played City first half we got the ball in the box early, lots of first time crosses, that should be out standard way of play, we will score more goals with our aerial threat, quite often our wide players receive the ball in more than enough space to do that, Antonio and Haller as a partnership can wreak havoc on a lot of these teams.
