DAVE BASSETT: Sacking Chris Wilder would be suicide, he knows exactly how to get Sheffield United out of trouble
- Sheffield United would be foolish if they were to sack manager Chris Wilder
- Wilder is best man for the job – the Blades should keep him for as long as possible
- When he was a player, Wilder helped United to stay in the old Division One
Chris Wilder knows exactly how to get Sheffield United out of this predicament because we did it before, and he was there. It was 1990-91 and we were much deeper in trouble than the Blades are now.
We had only four points from our first 16 games back in the old Division One. We went seven games without scoring. After 22 games we were still bottom. Absolutely nobody was saying we could stay up but we got out of trouble. We finished 13th.
The players, fans and board stuck together. That was the key. Everyone trusted what we were doing and no one went looking for a scapegoat. We trained hard and kept working. We stayed with our beliefs and our formation.
