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.
