For some reason Chris Wilder is leaving Sheffield Utd today according to the BBC, I can't understand it at all but would you have him at Palace if Roy's contract ends this summer?

If Roy does leave I think his hat would certainly be in the ring. He got quite an average Sheffield Utd into a great position last season, but this season injuries have taken their toll, along with the lack of quality players. The one question mark for me is he seems to have a lot of anger in him at the moment, so I question whether he might need a a break from football.

The fact it is being reported that he is leaving due to his belief that the club have not invested as much as they should have in players may may well be a cautionary insight that rules him out of coming to us. It never looks good when a manager is perceived to have to spend money in order to succeed (even if it is true).

And has been noted in the media, the two forwards signed for big money (for Sheff U) namely, McBurnie and Brewster simply haven't done the business. If they were Wilder choices, I would have to question his ability to recognize players capable of making it in the Premier League.

There were rumours that part of Wilder's dissatisfaction stemmed from the club wanting to bring in a director of football to oversee the club's transfer policy. If he wants complete control over transfers then I doubt he'll be coming here, as Roy constantly reminds us that he has little input!

I think Wilder, would be one of the most realistic choices open to Palace, if Hodgson, calls it a day. The main reason to say that is any new manager needs to be ready for the the restrictions imposed by Palaces financial realities, and yet be capable of getting everything out of that situation possible.
The fact that Wilder needed recruits is absolutely obvious. There is only so much can be done with any squad of players. In the Premier league, That applies more than in any other division.
He has proved he can get blood out of a stone, just as Roy, has done for two years now. Wilders squad was never as good as ours, yet he still leads two one, in results.
Palace are going to be a tough call for some time yet, but he would get an, if not great squad , a better one than the one he worked with this year..If he got out of a slightly revamped Palace, as much as he got into a Championship team playing out of its skin, for him and his tactics. We would be in good hands.

No Thanks. One decent Prem season based on a different approach, upwards momentum team spirit and a top goalie in Henderson. Always looks like he is sucking a lemon, dour northern attitude and won't work with a Director of Football apparently.

 


“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:

But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger. …”

Strange one... he has obviously fallen out with the Owner... still you’d think he’d see the season out as they’re doomed already....

And the goalie he bought from Bournemouth for approx £23m, Ramsdale, has been questioned by a lot of the fans.

I like Chris Wilder - I think he demands a lot from his players (effort & work ethics wise) which to me makes him a good choice ( if indeed we are going to be in the market to make a choice) my first thoughts when seeing he is leaving Sheff Utd was to consider that he would probably end up at Newcastle Utd -
I have nothing whatsoever to support this theory just what came to mind.

Sheff Utd sold him to Bournemouth for about £1 Mill + a 15% sell-on clause.My understanding is that when they brought him back to the club they paid £18.5 Mill for his services.

Indeed I believe he has not endeared himself to the supporters of Sheff Utd.At the start of the year I heard that he had a tendency to concede goals from long range and this was labelled against De Gea when he first signed for Man Utd.
