Sir Bobby blamed Wise for Toon downfall

Table of Contents
Sir Bobby Robson blamed Dennis Wise, not owner Mike Ashley for his beloved Newcastle United's demise, according to his long-time friend Bob Harris.

Harris – who co-authored four books with the former Toon and England boss – has revealed Sir Bobby's thoughts on Ashley and Wise in the months before his death from cancer.

The Sun reports that Sir Bobby told Harris: "I don't blame the chairman Mike Ashley.

"He had the club at heart, and wanted success as much as I did, but his great mistakes were in those he gathered around him.

"My biggest disappointment was Dennis Wise, a director of football who was hardly seen at the ground, and who brought in players who were neither suitable, nor right, for Newcastle United.

"I forgive most people, but I am not sure I can forgive Wise for what he did to my club."
