The Daily Mail put out a ridiculous story yesterday that Mike Ashley would get rid of Dennis Wise, and then try to facilitate a change in management by bringing in local Newcastle lads Alan Shearer or Steve Bruce to manage the club in the summer.
Daily Mail – Mike Ashley to sack Dennis – then Newcastle deny story
When we saw the story and saw there seemed absolutely nothing behind it, we thought it was little short of a disgrace that the newspaper should try to stir things up at Newcastle, once again.
And of course it was a Daily Mail Reporter reporting the stuff, so they didn’t even identify the culprit.
It was little more than another insidious attempt to disrupt things at the Tyneside club, as if we didn’t have enough disruption already this season.
So now today the same newspaper has the cheek to report that Newcastle United insist their executive director Dennis Wise’s job is in fact safe. Well, would you believe it?
They are saying Newcastle have denied tabloid reports (to be more accurate their report) that Wise’s days as executive director of football could be numbered as owner Mike Ashley continues building for the future.
Well how’s that for efficiency in making up news?
You put out a ridiculous story, and then when the club denies that there’s any truth in it, there’s another story, right there, for the next day.
It’s just ridiculous that these tabloids get away with reporting this rubbish all the time, and some, like the Daily Mail seem to have it in for Newcastle United.
We’ll be watching this lot from now on, you can bet on that.
