Wilder doesn't get it in writing and gets better offer

Even Duchatelet must be getting tired of the constant failure to do anything right. News today that Chris Wilder has pulled back from the deal to come to the Valley with Alan Knill and take on Mission Impossible. Reports suggest he wanted the commitment that he could control player decisions in writing but that was a step too far for The Regime. The only thing you can conclude from this, if true (sounds completely plausible) is that the initial promise to him was another Regime lie.

The fact that Sheffield United are now sniffing around probably has as much to do with it. The Blades would mean he could manage a hometown club and not have to shift his family south or spend days commuting. Personally, I am not too bothered. I didn't buy into all the hype around Wilder. I think that in itself was a sign of how desperate we have all become to avoid another inept Flemish-speaker.

What next for us? There's always someone willing to take on the challenge and risk given you get your contract paid up in the event they sack you early. All I can say with some surety, is that whoever eventually takes the job on will clearly be borderline desperate and will go down in my estimation.
