Many Wolves fans have paid their respect to Sheffield United manager Christ Wilder after he spoke about the club to the press.
In preparation for Sunday’s game between the two sides, Wilder praised his opposition by calling them a “fantastic side” and even mentioned how he would like to replicate them in establishing themselves in the English top-tier.
The Blades have had a pretty good crack of doing exactly that so far. In fact, they are currently just one position behind Wolves in sixth and, if things finished as the way they currently stand, they would also be on a European journey next year just like the East Midlands side currently are.
While both are currently enjoying their great form and will obviously want to continue to be in those European places, they will also be wise to the fact that there are just six points separating Wolves in 5th and West Ham in 17th, so there is really no need to get carried away yet.
Fan account @TalkingWolves tweeted out Wilder’s quotes, to which many fans responded with their messages about the manager, with them all being positive.
Here are a few below…
I like him, seems a genuine guy who’s brought them up from division 1. They’ll certainly be up for it.

This game terrifies me for some reason.

Has anyone done a better job than Wilder in the last 2/3 seasons?

Kudos. He’s a straight shooting manager who has his players running through brick walls for him. It will be a really tough game for us IMHO. Saying that they won’t sit back which should make for an entertaining game

They’re already doing a good job. Fair play. But hope we burst their bubble Sunday!!
