God, losing that "e" is a dangerous game......

its mad that he's even concidering this (which he must be if hes not ruleing it out).

1.) hes only been here 6 months, if he leaves now, his rep will be in tatters as what club could take a manager seriously who's willing to walk 6 months in? also, It looks like we will have plenty of money to spend in the summer with 20+ mil likely to come in from the sale of spence. Other players like tav, fry etc might attract big bids which again could fund an exciting rebuild.

2.) more importantly, burnley are a nothing a club, apart from being in the prem they have very little to offer. Small fan base, old and outdated stadium and facilities, unattractive area to attract players to and the club also spends no cash, so are highly unlikley to back wilder with signings. (their net spend over the last 5 seasons is like 10 mil which pretty much the reason there going down).

IF wilder is entertaining this, something must have happened behind the scenes to cause it as on the face of it seem like a ridiculous switch to make.

also in terms of the rumour, i lean to towards the "no smoke without fire" side. Its such an odd link that i think that there has to be some truth to it. How often does a manager 6 months into a new job start as favourite for a new position? not just that, he hasnt dismissed it despite being given the option to twice, that speaks volumes to me.

these two facts combined suggest to me that he could be gone, i guess all we can do is watch this space

Whilst I am confident there is nothing in the Wilder to Burnley rumours, IF he did go it’s not all doom and gloom. 
 

We have a squad that could be rebuilt in any managers ideal dream. Spence money would leave us looking healthy and we have the core of some good players. 
 

oh and Marcelo Bielsa is available.

I'd agree with this i don't think he will go. But if it were true it's arguably a better time to lose him now when we haven't invested massively yet in the project. Rather than 6 months time after the likelihood of some significant investment and find ourselves doing another squad overhaul of a Wilder squad.

I'd just be worried that he'd get Burnley to fight it out with us for Connolly and Balogun in the summer 😟

Who was the guy at Leeds that makes the signings?

Could do with someone like him here.

Like I said, Karanka will be getting sacked in 5 games or less, let's bring the band back together.

Only way I can wrap my head around him leaving for Burnley is if there's been a massive falling out behind closed doors. To the scale that Wilder feels he can't fulfil a long term project here. 

Depressing weekend regarding Boro, this uncertainty caps it off 😔

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
