Wise move for Newcastle?

Newcastle United
by Ian H - BBC Sport (U1816778) 29 January 2008
comment on the article

So Dennis Wise is on his way to Newcastle to take on a role that is as yet unclear .

Even manager Kevin Keegan expressed some confusion at the news, saying on Monday: "I am reluctant to tell you all I know as I really do not know everything. I just do not know enough about it."

So what is going on at Newcastle? Can Keegan and Wise work well together? And what tasks will Wise take on?

Where does Wise fit in?

It's either completely barmy or about a 1% chance of brilliance.

I hear Mike Bassett is joining up next week, what are the odds?

You toons still dancing in the street up there or is realisation starting to dawn that what is happening is just bizarre?

On the playing front you'd have thought the return of God Mk2 would have sparked a bit more passion than an apalling draw at home and 6 going in at the Arsenal.

I think the big worry is Keegan's supposed to be a motivator not a tactician - but your lot only look motivated to be playing in the Chumpionship asap.

I can't see the point anymore, I support them stick by them follow Newcastle all the time, and then they get beat, new manager says he needs time, blah blah blah, they lose again, manager resigns, its just like clockwork, keegan won't do well its to tactical football now for him, he says he doesn't ant a director of football, BUT this is newcastle and they bring wise in as oh the director of football, GIVE UP

Guy just been on 606 banging on about Dennis Wise getting Millwall to the FA Cup final. I'm getting sick of this myth - he got them there without having to beat a single side from the premiership. Any league one side might get there with a draw that lucky.

Still as a Sunderland fan, one can't help but giggle. Twenty four hours a day...seven days a week...
