During an appearance on Sky Sports, Dennis Wise has suggested that a lot of Newcastle fans ‘don’t help the situation’ when it comes to Mike Ashley – claiming that he’ll always get stick no matter what he does.
A reminder that this comes from the man who scouted players on Youtube, working under Ashley during an successful year at the club as our ‘executive director’. It’s good to see Sky getting unbiased opinions on the current situation at NUFC..
It’s no surprise to hear him defend Ashley at our expense once again, but I do question why Sky constantly give him (and others) the platform to twist the truth and make it seem as though he really isn’t the bad guy.
Quite incredibly, he even tries to suggest we may be the problem for constantly giving him stick – fitting in with Ashley’s constant claim that he is unfairly painted as the pantomime villain:
"Whatever he does, he will constantly get stick"

“Unfortunately whatever he does, he will constantly take stick. It’s as simple as that,”
“There are a lot of people out there that don’t help the situation. They want to bring it onto him.
“People complain about them not spending enough money but if you trade well at a football club and you’re able to bring players in and take players out and make money, I don’t see what the problem is with that.”
“I think Rafa’s actually turned around and said they have improved their squad so that says it all really doesn’t it?”
Maybe some abuse is unfairly directed towards Ashley from time to time, but Wise speaks as if we’ve just had a blinder of a window and are still complaining. We have a net spend over MINUS £20m and have faced another summer of lies, with his words in May not tallying up with what he’s then delivered over the next few months.
How dare Wise point the finger at us when HE is clearly the problem in all of this.
We only endeavour to show him up for the proven liar he is. He brings it onto himself. We don’t let him get away with it.
