Duncan Castles of the Sunday Times & Transfer Window podcast claiming that Chris Wilder is being lined up as a replace for Cabbagehead. Plausible, but he did claim Mike Ashley reached out to Rafa in February...
Before or after we get relegated?

Would be a decent appointment if we're looking to get promoted ASAP & his teams are decent to watch on the eye. Likes the three at the back system with a fundamental emphasis on work-rate, organisation & lots of crosses in the box (width/wing-play). If we survive he'll still be better than Bruce tbh.. I'll prefer someone like Howe but Wilder would be good enough & at least he'll get us on the front foot. This season it's gone all wrong at Shefield as teams have worked & found them out tactically & they've been poor defensively & they anit scored enough goals but there first season was great.. lots of good attacking play, fearless & a good formation/system that suited them to a peach.

Wilder, I'm afraid, doesn't inspire me but would be another typical Ashley appointment.

He'd be better than a lot of alternatives, I'd be game. Wilder also heavily linked to West Brom if/when Big Sam walks away following relegation.

Same. It’s indicative of where we are and what Ashley expects from the club. If we stayed up and appointed Wilder I’d have no expectation other than finishing 17th next season.

Wilder did amazingly well to get Sheffield United into the PL and for last season, but his managerial career isn’t really anything to write home about and when Sheffield Utd got found out post-restart and this season he didn’t really have any ideas.

An improvement on Bruce, yes. But frankly, that’s a bloody low bar.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

IMO would be worth it just to watch Fabian Schär playing overlapping centreback 😍

Rumours that Bruce will be offered an extension and pay rise if we stay up.

Sounds bollocks. "Achieve the absolute bare minimum expected and we'll give you a pay rise".

Yeah sounds like clickbait bollocks. He’s still got another year and it’s not like anyone else is going to come knocking to try and take him off us so there’s no need for Ashley to pay him more.

I suspect there’s a bonus involved for every season he keeps us up.
