That makes no sense. This is a discussion board. That's all people are doing.

If we only commented on official releases this would be a very quiet place indeed. Our beloved club is not known for being honest and open with the fans, quite the opposite.

The club really should have had this sorted by today. At the moment we have essentially a 17 man squad of players (assuming Rondon and Harper are off as is basically certain) and that still includes players we appear not to want like Burke or don't trust as first team squad members like Field, Edwards and Leko. Coupled with the expected departure of some of the senior players we're going to have a turnover of at least half the first team squad this summer - that's a huge job.

Already by taking so long we've missed out on a bunch of the better free transfers that were available (although we've at least been wise enough not to take a punt and waste money on players a new manager might not want) and the more time we take the less time we have to plan.

We already have a new manager coming in, we'll probably sign around 10 players so have about half a new squad coming in, and the transfer window shuts the first week of August now. If the club has so many good candidates then they just need to choose one rather than chasing all of them up and a) risking getting none of them and b) serving an impossible job to whoever gets it by parachuting them in too late they can't properly evaluate the squad in time or make the transfers they want.

I cannot believe this latest rumour about Wilder.

He is great, but also a lifelong blade who has just taken his beloved team up on a relative shoestring.

Unless he's on a quid 50 there you've got more chance of Sean Bean getting an Oscar.

Exactly. You have to be a special kind of thick to think Wilder is coming here.

A Blades fan who has coached them into the Premier League is really going to leave them for a club in the Championship. If it were Man Utd or Liverpool maybe, just maybe, the opportunity is just too enormous. Anyone else. Not a cat in else chance. It just amazes me that people need this pointing out.

Wait for the Labbadia deal to collapse over the weekend, due to Jenkins penny pinching AGAIN. We will get what we pay for - A cheap no good manager that takes us backwards even more. Jenkins has absolutely no vision, and clearly doesn't understand that quality comes at a price.

So why not just pay Wolfburg the last month on his contract and get him in now.
Or is that too easy?

No, too expensive of course

There are mentions on social media that the deal has collapsed. I have read in two or three unreliable places, so perhaps utter rubbish.

Might be an issue on length of contract. Interesting that the job Labbadia was linked to at his old club Hamburger SV, went to Dieter Hecking on a 1 year deal, but with automatic extension if the club was promoted.

Someone mentioned earlier about a scatter gun approach.

Seems to me the only thing we know is what we will give as wages. Given the range of names we are linked with, the style of football does not appear to be a big priority.

We 'appear' to be lurching from target to target, with wages being a major factor, as shown by Jokanovic apparently.

The longer this goes on, the longer it looks like Appleton...

Would love to be a fly in the room during a time when our board are negotiating with a player/manager. Can only imagine.

I can see it now... after an extensive search the board have unanimously decided that Michael Appleton is the number one choice of the board.

For what it's worth and we'll watch this space, but Matt Wilson has said that Appleton is not being considered.

There’s nothing to consider if he is number one target. The other shortlists and interviews will be fobbed off as due diligence.

Bored now with all the BS.

Jenkins, let Labbadia sign with your blood. Now.

90+ day to sort this. or at least plan. may as well give it Shan. Then prepare for preseason. As for Wilder I maybe disabled but I haven't got the C word tattooed on my forhead why would Wilder leave the blunts? it looks exactly what it is and that's DESPERATE. we are looking like Sunderland

The biggest issue with the Matt Wilson article isn't the fact we are going for Wilder, its the fact the headline said we are "Swooping" for Wilder. When did we last "swoop" for anyone?
We have a history of swooping for injured loanees.  ;)

I love the club to show ambition but how many times have we been excited about an attainable target only for us to over shoot completely and miss out on both and end up with the ugly sister?!

I don’t like this development at all. Unless there is something massively wrong at Sheffield United then I don’t even understand it.

This Labbadia is the Ralph Rangnick debacle all over again. I’d put my house on it.
