Sheffield United: Fans don’t think Chris Wilder would suit Arsenal managerial job

Chris Wilder has been one of the stand-out managers in English football in recent years.

Yes

Yes

No

No

He then established them in the Championship the following season, before guiding them to automatic promotion from the second tier in his third season in charge (BBC Sport), meaning he had achieved an impressive two promotions in three years.

Wilder is now upsetting the odds with the Blades in the Premier League, after 11 games he has already led them to 16 points and they currently sit in sixth place in the top flight (BBC Sport).

A major reason for his success is his revolutionary style of play. He has implemented a 3-5-2 formation at Bramall Lane which sees the two outside centre-backs joining in attacks (medium.com), and it is a system which most other teams are struggling to deal with.

As a result of Wilder’s success, pundit Tony Cascarino has recently suggested on talkSPORT that he should be considered for the biggest managerial roles in England, including the Arsenal job.

However, several Sheffield United fans disagree and believe that Wilder wouldn’t suit the Gunners due to a number of different reasons.

Here is why some Blades supporters don’t believe that Arsenal and Wilder are a match…
