I don’t know how true this is, but there is a rumour flying about this afternoon that Dennis Wise could be joining Gus Poyet in a joint managerial role if Newcastle dump us out the Carling Cup on Wednesday night!
I’m not one to take much notice of this sort of stuff but the guy that told me also said we’d sign Bent about six months before it actually happened, that was bad new as well!!
Newcastle are in turmoil at the minute so I can understand the thinking, if we can’t even beat them, how are we going to pick up any league points?
I’ve never had a problem with Dennis Wise and while his reputation has been somewhat tarnished with all the chaos at Newcastle, his managerial record is hard to knock.
Personally, if Ramos and the board have come to some kind of mutual decision for him to leave the club, I’d rather see Gus take charge on his own. That way he would be able to carry on the work they have started, and there would still be some stability.
This could all be just speculation obviously but any manager that hadn’t won after five league games, against mainly inferior opposition, would have their credentials called in question.
