Sir Bobby Robson: "I think Dennis Wise will never be accepted here and he has to realise that.

"While Dennis is running things from the south, you have to ask if the structure is correct.

"The absolute priority for Newcastle now is to appoint a first-class manager, right away.

"At the moment, everything surrounding Newcastle would put first-class managers off. It has to change, and fast.

"Like all Newcastle supporters, I'm deeply concerned about how the club has appeared to slide, and things seem to be worse now than ever.

"If it's not Keegan coming back, the club have to move on quickly. And a first-class manager will only work if he can determine what he wants and the club back his decisions.

"If the owner is the most important person at a club, the manager must be the second most important. And they have to work hand in hand.

"My view is that they need to appoint a Geordie manager, and someone with Premier League experience. That person can work with a director of football, as long as it's a director of football who will try to work on what the manager wants."
