    NEIL WARNOCK was awkwardly blocked from clearing out his Middlesbrough office - because successor Chris Wilder was inside.

And it did not take the north-east club to confirm Wilder as his replacement. So much so that when Warnock headed into the training ground barely 12 hours later on the Sunday morning to collect his things, he could not go in. According to the Daily Mail, the record-breaking ex-Sheffield United and Cardiff manager rocked up at the gate. But he was told by Boro security staff he could not go inside because Wilder was already in there - presumably signing on the dotted line and posing for photographs. The 54-year-old had been out of a job for eight months since leaving...

    NEIL WARNOCK has been sacked as manager of Middlesbrough - with ex-Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder set to take over.

    CHRIS WILDER is talking to Fulham over succeeding Scott Parker as boss. That's according to talkSPORT'S Alex Crook after ex-Sheffield United manager Wilder was also linked to West Brom. 2Chris Wilder is said to be in negotiations with Fulham, having been out of work since leaving Sheffield United in March this yearCredit: PA 2Scott Parker has swapped relegated Fulham for BournemouthCredit: Getty Parker took over Fulham's Championship rivals Bournemouth on a three-year deal this week, just after exiting Craven Cottage by mutual consent. Wilder was thought to be keen on finding a new Premier League job. But Fulham have the resources to challenge seriously for promotion. And it would be a fresh start for the boyhood Sheffield United fan. He guided the Blades to the top flight and ninth place in their first Prem season, but quit in March this year with bottom-placed United doomed for the drop. Swansea chief Steve Cooper has also been rated as a contender for Fulham, as well as for Crystal Palace. But now Wilder looks in pole position for Craven Cottage. CASINO SIGN UP OFFER: GET £10...
    SLAVISA JOKANOVIC has been sounded out about taking over from Chris Wilder as Sheffield United manager. The relegated Blades have invited the former Watford and Fulham boss for talks after plans to appoint Oostende’s Alexander Blessin and Bramall Lane caretaker chief Paul Heckingbottom backfired. 2Slavisa Jokanovic has been sounded out about becoming Sheffield United's new bossCredit: AFP or licensors A move for German Blessin, 47, hit the buffers because he doesn't fulfil the requirements to be granted a work permit. And Heckingbottom, 43, has now become an outsider in the race to replace Wilder because Blades bigwigs have concerns over his ability after winning only one of his eight games in temporary charge so far.  And the former Barnsley, Leeds and Hibernian manager would not be a popular choice with United fans. Jokanovic, 52, wants to work in England again following a successful stint in Qatar, where he led Al-Gharafa into the qualifying rounds of the AFC Champions League. Bramall Lane bosses are now chasing the Serb because he has more experience than Heckingbottom, having won promotion to the Premier...
    SHEFFIELD UNITED'S disgraceful decision to sack Chris Wilder brought an end to the greatest era in the club's post-war history. The boyhood fan and former player brought unprecedented joy to thousands of fans - and it is unlikely they will have it as good again. 2Wilder, 53, did an remarkable job at Sheffield UnitedCredit: AFP It is important to remember where the Blades were when Wilder took charge in the summer of 2016. They had just completed their fifth year in League One, finishing 11th under Wilder's predecessor Nigel Adkins. The club was riddled with apathy and frustration, with fans desperate for them to appoint the right person and return to the Championship. In his first season in charge, Wilder's team - playing free-flowing, attacking football - won the title with 100 points. They captured the imagination of the supporters, reinvigorating their faith and giving them a team to adore. And the best was yet to come.

    PAUL HECKINGBOTTOM will get the chance to steer Sheffield United to safety and the FA Cup final - with Jason Tindall to join as his sidekick. Heckingbottom is to run the Blades side for the rest of the campaign after Chris Wilder’s departure on Saturday night, with no plans for a new manager before the summer. 3Chris Wilder took his boyhood club up the divisionsCredit: Rex Features And former Bournemouth boss Tindall, axed after just half a season in charge, will partner him at the helm at Bramall Lane. Tindall is available and keen to return to management. His appointment will spark talk of Eddie Howe coming in as manager down the line, but insiders reveal that is not currently part of the plan. The new management pair have an uphill task to stay up but they do have a shot at Cup glory, with United in the quarter finals. Wilder went to United’s training camp to finalise his exit yesterday and he will NOT be allowed to discuss the controversial departure. The popular manager is to get a severance...
    CHRIS WILDER has been guaranteed his job – even if Sheffield United are relegated. The Blades were thumped 3-0 at Southampton to leave them rock bottom of the Premier League with just one point from 12 games. 2Chris Wilder has been guaranteed his job even if Sheffield United are relegatedCredit: AFP But owner Prince Abdullah insists there is no chance he will be dumping 53-year-old boyhood Blades fan Wilder. Prince Abdullah said: “I could say that Chris has earned the right to stay because he won us two promotions in the last three years, but that is not how I look at it. “If we get relegated, I’m set to lose big money so the decision to keep Chris is simply because I think he is the best manager to take us out of the current situation. “I believe in him, if he wasn’t the manager of the team I would hire him now and if the worst comes to the worst and we are relegated, I believe he is the manager to take us back quickly. “It has been...
    PLENTY of plaudits have been going Chris Wilder’s way again after his Sheffield United side humbled Chelsea. And for me, Wilder is the Premier League Manager of the Year. 2Chris Wilder has been superb at Sheffield United this seasonCredit: The Mega Agency Jurgen Klopp has had a sensational season and Liverpool have won the league at a canter. But you have to look at where the respective teams have come from. And let’s not forget Liverpool were second in the Premier League last season — only beaten to the title by a brilliant team in Manchester City — and won the Champions League. Whereas Sheffield United came up from  the  Championship and find themselves just five points off fourth place. At the end of last season, you would have said for sure that Liverpool would be going for the title. You wouldn’t have said that the Blades would be looking at finishing among the first five and securing a possible Champions League place. I remember covering them in League One and very little has changed. The only thing they do...
