does that mean the end of Butler? I don't think wise will take long to ship a lot of them out, they should all be fearing for their place.
Dennis Wise = Millwall=Divison One. Leeds, it might be a recognised name, but is this another Brayn Robson in the offing?
Dennis is very good at getting the best out of players and at swindon he had them fit, motivated and most importantly having the desire to play and battle on even when the going was tough.
He won't shirk from telling the truth to players to their faces.
He's a very good player, good choice
i thourt Dennis Wise would make a improvment 4 leeds but i qess not
an excellent player.... will have to see what even he can do........
