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 😔

I know that there is the never say never in football but I would be stunned if he left and even more stunned that he would join Burnley. 

He can only be backing himself to keep Burnley up.

Even if he doesn't go, the way he has handled it all has been nothing short of catastrophic. 

This, I thought he was better than this and it spoils what was otherwise a really good start to his time here. His honeymoon period is over and it’s all his fault.

I can’t get my head around this.  Been out of most of the day so playing catch up, I’m also still to watch the post match presser. 
I would be annoyed if he’s going.

What the hell has happened For the project to fail, he was really positive in all press conferences.  This was his ideal job and all that, I just can’t see what’s going on.

He’s not really done anything wrong tho. Watch the post match presser. He sounded despondent, and I do believe he cares. The Burnley link is an unwanted distraction - add to this a number of random speculative internet rumours and that’s what’s spoiled it

Nothing has happened other than the internet being the internet

He’s failed to commit his long term future to Boro in two separate press conferences. You could probably let him off if it was only a one off but to do it twice when the question is directly asked, it doesn’t look good does it? He knew exactly what he was doing and saying.

I'm disappointed in the comments myself but take a step back and you'll realise it really isn't catastrophic. The problem isn't that he has said he's thinking of leaving, it's that he hasn't given a direct answer and said he isn't interested. From there, everybody has assumed that means he isn't committed to us and catastrophised those few comments on the situation that he has made.

The rest of his media reaction is all about the game and as he always has, he goes into it with the detail and analysis of a committed Chris Wilder. Which is contrasting to the belief everyone is taking from the comments, or lack thereof, that he has made. He's even made comments about the medium and long-term in his post-match interview which seems to get glossed over by a decision people think he might be making as a result of not really saying anything.

There really is just a chance that he's handled it poorly and not realised what was going to happen when he did. Or at least, he's so *** off with what's happened during the game that he doesn't really care what people are going to say in the aftermath of his comments. That's not catastrophical, in my eyes.

Walking out on the team and not turning up for the next game, that was a catastrophe and one that one of our former managers never really recovered from with the fans, despite getting us promoted. And people frankly didn't care about that at the time he took us up, it was only when things went really wrong at the top level that those things came back to haunt him.

    • 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.
