Wise: "They've cut my balls off as well. "

11 August 2007 :: by Chris Hudson

Dennis Wise, quoted in today's Mirror, graphically describes his feelings on the Football League and their actions (and inactions) over the close-season

"This summer has been an absolute nightmare," said Wise, "We've been tested to the limit and it doesn't look fair to me. Not only have they taken my arms and legs off, now they've cut my balls off as well.

"I think a lot of people want to see, us fall flat on our faces and the League chairmen have helped the situation. But we'll dust ourselves down and get on with it. It is time for us to march on and stick together."

Responding to comments that every other team in League One will see the game against Leeds as their cup final for the season, Dennis indicated that the partial behaviour displayed by the Football League clubs in their vote on Thursday could back-fire against them in a big way. He continued,

"We can turn a negative into a positive. We will have a massive point to prove every time we play.

Dennis commented that last season several players hadn't got the heart for the fight and were happy just to pick up their wages. The delaying tactics of the HMRC and the Football League embargo on transfers meant that Dennis had just eight days to sign a squad of players. Nevertheless, he seems happier with his squad and hinted that the signings have not finished.

"We have players here already who are willing to face the challenge and I'm sure there are a few more out there."

Dennis knows that the Leeds fans will see the team he plays as his, despite the ridiculously short time he has been given to sign and prepare them, and that they will not accept any excuses, even more so now that they start the season 15 points in arrears.
