Extract from The Sack Race's website (link below):

After leading Northampton to the title in 2016, Wilder turned down an offer from Charlton in order to return to his beloved Sheffield United as manager - after the Blades swooped in at the last minute following the departure of Nigel Adkins.

In the space of three-and-a-half-years Chris Wilder has galvanised Sheffield United. Reconnected the club with the fans and led the Blades from League One up to the top 6 of the Premier League*. (*At time of writing)

Let’s not forget the individual honour he received, after he scooped the LMA Manager of the Year award (2019) ahead of a certain Pep Guardiola.

One particular area that Chris Wilder has thrived in is the recruitment of players, which can often make or break a manager. John Fleck, David McGoldrick and Enda Stevens were all snapped up on free transfers, George Baldock and John Lundstram were both purchased for under £1m, while Ollie Norwood was a snip at £2m.

But it’s not just Chris Wilder's keen eye for a player that has proved exceptional, but his ability to improve players and encourage them to reach their potential, with the likes of Fleck, Jack O’Connell and Chris Basham progressing up the league ladder with Wilder; from the third-tier to the glitz and glamour of the English Premier League.

So what is Wilder’s secret?

“It’s the whole package, the people I work with are very well respected and work very hard at their jobs. There’s Alan Knill and my coaching staff, then Paul Mitchell and the recruitment.

“We’re not a chequebook football club. We have to work hard and look to see who fits in from a lot of aspects. We’re a football club that tries to improve football players on a Monday to Friday, through coaching and every other aspect.

“If you don’t sign good players and they don’t fit into your system, or they’re not the right people from an attitude or character point of view, then you’re going to fail. We don’t always get it right but we’ve had to get a lot right.

“I think the players deserve an enormous amount of credit as well. They’re the ones that have to take in the information which we give them to help them improve their game, and they then put into practice on a match day. I’m very proud of them.

“You don’t get prizes for spunking money! The key is to get value for money out of the players and maximize your budget.”

Part 2 coming 2nd February 2020...

After leading Northampton Town to the League Two title in 2016, Chris Wilder had elevated his managerial stock to new heights.

Rumours were rife that recently relegated Championship clubs weere on the hunt for Wilder’s signature as they each sought a swift return to the second tier.

“I was due for a press conference in London at 2 o’clock and I was intercepted along the way,” Wilder explained to The Sack Race.

“The night before I received a phone call that I wasn’t expecting: ‘Would you be interested in speaking to the board of directors at Sheffield United in London on the Tuesday morning?’.

“I met them at 8 o’clock and about half-an-hour later I was asked to leave the room. I walked into a side room with my assistant Alan Knill, who’d been in the interview with me, and turned to him and said: ‘I think we’ve got this job and we’re going to have to take it.’

“It was always talked about by a lot of my friends and people that I knew in Sheffield, but obviously I’d never coveted it, yet I knew that if I got offered the job I’d never forgive myself if I didn’t take it.

“So I came back into the room, and was then offered the job. I was obviously proud and delighted to be given the opportunity of managing this famous football club.

“I then had to make a difficult phone call to Charlton...which somebody else did - that’s why you’ve got agents!”

Wilder’s managerial career spans nearly 20 years; from the ninth-tier of England’s league ladder right up to the dizzying heights of the Premier League.

During this time Wilder has enjoyed title triumphs, promotions, a quadruple, an LMA Manager of the Year accolade, and more recently he was crowned The Sack Race’s Manager of the Decade (2010 to 2019).

It’s remarkable to think that the boss started the previous decade in the Blue Square Premier when his Oxford side faced Tamworth in early 2010, only to then end the decade at the helm of his boyhood club Sheffield United who finished 2019 with a match against Pep Guardiola’s defending champions Man City. What a memorable managerial journey it has been, and continues to be.
