Keegan Had Many Many Altercations With Dennis Wise


It turns out that Kevin Keegan had a number of run-ins with Dennis Wise, way before the volcano finally erupted on August 30th last year.

Kevin Keegan – continual arguments with Dennis Wise


The Evening Chronicle has been informed by a Newcastle insider that there were many altercation with Wise, and they are listed below.

In April, 2008 Kevin expressed an interest in Gareth Barry, of Aston Villa, but his approach was “laughed off” by Wise after Mike Ashley had warned there would only be a limited transfer funds that summer.

The inside source has also claimed:

  • The Newcastle United board disagreed with Keegan’s suggestion to sign then Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia, after former captain Michael Owen had recommended him to Kevin
  • Keegan and Wise rowed furiously after Dennis set up a move for then Basel and Switzerland striker Eren Derdiyok. That move was widely reported but it eventually collapsed
  • Keegan did not want Fabricio Coloccini signed from Deportivo la Coruna for £10M after the player had been offered to Newcastle twice in 2007 for a smaller fee
  • Joe Kinnear thought he had got rid of on-loan signing Gonzalez and sent him back to Valencia, but Joe had ot mied up with Italian youngster Fabio Zamblera, who was sent to Sampdoria on loan last January.

The Newcastle source told the Chronicle:

“The findings of the report from the compensation do contain a lot of revelations.” “But they don’t tell even half of the story about what has been going on at that club in the last couple of years.”

“Kevin was adamant when he came in he was going to have a say in buying and selling players – after all, it’s how he made his name last time around as manager.”

“It all started around the April of last year when Gareth Barry was linked with Liverpool and Kev thought he had a chance of bringing him to Newcastle because of his relationship from their England days.”

“Obviously, Barry’s move to Liverpool turned sour, and he’s at Man City after staying with Villa last year.”  “But Kevin is convinced with the right backing he’d have been a Newcastle player.”

“Kevin was desperate to make Newcastle as resolute as possible and also fancied his chances of bringing Sami Hyypia, but instead he was lumbered with Coloccini who was offered to Newcastle in 2007 on a couple of occasions and at that time at a cheaper price.”

Well you can’t have two people fighting like this tooth and nail, and have a successful club.

It certainly looks, in retrospect that the signing of Dennis Wise was the death knell for Kevin, and it looks like things behind the scenes were a lot worse than anybody had thought.

It’s just a complete disgrace that these things were allowed to happen, and shows once again that Mike Ashley has no right whatsoever  to be the current owner of Newcastle United.

He’s a complete disgrace to the famous Tyneside football club.

    Barry was imposible to catch at that time so i dont know why KK was even tryin to make the imposible.
    For that money we could have bought Stephane M’Bia & Miralem Pjanic which is a 100 times better deal.

    It seems obvious to me there was trouble all the way along and funny how the “mob” had complained about the owner and Wise but according to some here, were totally ill-informed and way off the mark.

    How could someone work under these circumstances, what about after the Chelsea match, KK said we were way off the mark (and it was obvious to see) but he was summoned to London and received a dressing down about his remarks.

    They tried to gag KK and he had to take them to a tribunal so the truth could come out.

    This owner has created a “dark period in NUFC history” and lets not forget

    “The Club admitted to the Tribunal that it repeatedly and intentionally misled the press, public and the fans of Newcastle United.”

    As soon as I seen Wise mentioned as coming ro the club I knew it was all downhill from there.
    🙁
    He has to be in the top 5 most disliked premiership players ever.

    Mort was the only decent guy he brought in, did he leave because of the owner in the end? Maybe he could see the fan was about to be brown coloured sooner or later.

    I think as fans its something we need to draw a line under and move on as quiclky as we can,

    The whole thing was a shambles from start to finish.

    How would people feel if ashley was to remain on the board if moat’s bid was succesful? And Sirjason i know you dont think the sale will happen before you say it again ( i really just hope your wrong on that one )

    Johno I just don’t see it happening….why sell now and make a huge loss when he can gamble on us getting promoted and make up for the losses he has incurred…the end of the season isn’t too far away (all he needs to do is pay the wages no transfer spending)and I can see him staying until then to get his 60m tv money and twice the supposed 100m he is asking right now for the club.

    Barry went to Man city….players will go where the money is…If Mike said to Houghton here’s 100m to spend in January you would be surprised at the type of player that would come to the toon…Money talks-City are no better than us or bigger just they have money that they are prepared to invest in the 1st team squad.

    So if Keegan had offered Barry massive wages and Mike would pay the fee there is no reason why Keegan could not have signed Barry or Henry or Beckham for that matter.

    That is an idiotic way to approach transfers. It is that kind of thinking that gets teams into debt. We dont have Man City money so we are in no position to offer such fees and wages. Face it, KK was deluded.

    Dragonera he had just found out that his liverpool move was off, So there was a good chance that KK could have persuaded him to come to us. so to answer your question, “So you think that was a feesable transfer” IMHO Yes it was. But im pretty sure you will say it wasn’t. also do you think Sami Hyypia was unfeesable aswell ?

    Hyypia may have been feesable. Gareth Barry was NOT feesable. Why would he take a massive step down from Villa to us. We have been s**t for years and you think “The Messiah” KK could have brought Gareth Barry here!? Crazyness. We dont have the money nor the prospects to attract that calibre of player. KK going after Barry shows he was living in the past and completely deluded.

    Are you mad?! Of course we were a step down from Villa! Villa, who finished 6th and were clearly progressing whilst we finished 12th and were clearly declining. It was clear for everyone to see. Barry wouldn’t have touched us with a bloody barge pole!

    Aye, i can see it from both sides like. As it stands, we can only find genuine links when the game is being covered live on Sky or the BBC. Any other games then we will have to use radio.

    Does it matter? Can we only post on here only if we are recognised by regular posters? Not being funny like, its just that somtimes it can feel like this blog is very cliquey.

    Villa ARE a big club. They have won European cups etc and i am pretty sure they have won much more silverware than us.

    Dragonera > Kev thought he had a chance of bringing him to Newcastle because of his relationship from their England days.” Lots of players go out of there way to play under a manager that they respect and get on with, that is the point i was making even Mo stated that he was for staying under KK I know a lot of people didnt like Mo but he was a bigger player than Barry so i still think there was a chance

    ————————————————————–
    They don’t work, people post links every week on sites like that and livefootballblogspot, but the links just take you to another page or a site where you have to pay.

    If the game isn’t being shown on any UK or foreign channel then it can’t be streamed.

    Never pay for a link because if the match is on then it will be on free sites like justin tv, ustream, myp2peu, p2p4u, sopcast and adthe.
