Wise to assist KK


Recommended Posts

He'd be mad to walk out on Leeds to play 2nd fiddle to someone who's entire prematch team talk against Arsenal consisted on ' Lets pass it better than them''

He's best off learning his trade where he is, Keegan has nothing to teach him cos he already knows how to motivate people.

Keegan - Played 2 scored none - what a comeback! Hail King Kev icon_rolleyes.gif

Why would Wise want to quit as a manager to become a director of football? Even if it's for a Premiership club...(?) 300.gif

I mean, he's doing a pretty good job this season. Despite Leeds being docked points, they're still looking like they should be able to make their way to the promotion play offs and without the points penalty, they would be on top of League One. I'd be very surprised if Wise makes the switch. icon_eek.gif

I think it would be a good move for Wisey, not if he was to be assistant manager but as a director of football. He's proved that he can coach and motivate players but proving that he can buy players at the top end of the game would be a great asset to him in looking for the big job. And besides that how often does the director of football stab the manager in the back and take over!!! He'd also get to make some really good contacts.

Didn't Mr Clarke cut his assitant mangerial teeth as a Newcastle ?

Maybe Dennis is on his way back icon_wink.gif

Being an assistant manager and a director of football are hardly the same thing, are they? icon_rolleyes.gif

Well no, as Directore of Football you get promoted as manager when the manager in place get's on the nerves of the owner....

Intersting to see KK's reponse now - appears he had no input in Wise's appointment and he has gone on record as saying in the past that he doesn't like this type of arrangement

Are the wheels are falling off already? 247.gif

Already? There were never more than three on their particular wagon .. which goes a long way to explaining the Geordies tendency to move in ever decreasing circles icon_lol.gif
