Sheffield United: Fans fuming with Natalie Sawyer after she labels Chris Wilder ‘dinosaur’

Sheffield United have made a fine start to the Premier League, taking eight points from their opening seven matches.

Is Chris Wilder too harsh on his teams sometimes?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Blades are defying the odds in the top flight, and have already taken points from the likes of Everton, AFC Bournemouth and Chelsea.

At the heart of their success is manager Chris Wilder, who has guided his boyhood club from League One to the Premier League in just three years.

The 52-year-old is considered by Jamie Redknapp to be one of the best English managers around. Indeed, he has masterminded an innovative system at Bramall Lane in which the outside centre-backs of his 3-5-2 formation overlap the wing-backs and get themselves into attacking positions.

He was even named the LMA Manager of the Year last season ahead of the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, which shows just how highly he is rated amongst his peers.

Following his success, Wilder can do no wrong in the eyes of Sheffield United fans. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that many of the Blades faithful were left furious when talkSPORT pundit Natalie Sawyer labelled his style as “dinosaur management” on Monday.

Her comments came after the former Oxford United chief said that he would not “put his arm around” goalkeeper Dean Henderson after his mistake against Liverpool on Saturday.

Fans of the South Yorkshire club were quick to respond to Sawyer, mainly criticising her for using the word dinosaur to describe one of the most forward thinking managers in the English game.

Here is what some of them had to say…
