The owner has backed Wilder regardless if they go down.
Makes sense to me. He took them from League 1 to Premier League in two seasons and top half finish last season. Even if they go down he will have a great team for the Championship and would get them up again.
He is paying the price for his famed stubborness - McBurnie, McGoldrick & Sharp are (at best) Championship forwards and on the limited game time Brewstwer has had so far, he seems to have spunked away a lot of money on him too
Villa famously got relegated a few years ago due to their similarly poor forward line and the Blades look likely to follow suit
Agree that it probably isn't worth sacking him now but he could do with somebody by his side who doesn't always agree with him
Blimey - I had assumed from their performance so far that they'd basically just stuck with last season's squad. If (as in Coffin Dodger's post) there are ructions in the dressing room - and I could see why there would be - as well as having spent considerable amounts then they are in a tough spot.They paid £22 million for Berge for example...
