Wise To Get The Boot?

The Mail: "Reports suggest former Millwall and Leeds boss Wise is set for the axe as Ashley looks to bring in either Alan Shearer or Steve Bruce as manager in the summer.

"Neither of them would consider taking over with Wise in situ and feel his £1.2m a year salary would be better spent elsewhere.

"Ex-Chelsea skipper Wise has not been seen at the club since an FA Youth Cup clash with QPR a few weeks ago, and has never been a popular figure at St James's Park since his appointment a year ago."
