Mike Newell was incensed by the alleged distortion of the events leading up to the 'Nichollsgate' affair last week. In refusing to allow Nicholls to return to Luton, Wise is alleged to have made some disparaging remrks about Luton Town FC, some of which were broadcast on television, where he said that he could have understood it if it were a bigger or big club.
Mike said on Luton's official website:
'People need to be aware of the facts. At no stage did I make anything public. I don't do the Football Club's business in public. That was the choice of Leeds United Football Club.
'I made an enquiry, having been made aware that Kevin Nicholls was unhappy and wanted to come back to Luton.
'The first port of call was the Leeds United manager. He told me that there was 'no chance' and at nine o'clock the following morning he rang me up and told me that if I wanted Kevin Nicholls he would cost £700,000.
'He also was very disrespectful to Luton Town Football Club and its supporters. I won't accept that.
'I kept very quiet last week because I didn't want to stoke the fire by reacting to his comments.
'I'm reacting to them now. I won't have anyone disrespect this Club and talk about it as a small club in Bedfordshire. Dennis Wise needs to remember where he's come from. He hasn't always been employed by massive clubs.
'This is Luton Town Football Club. This Club is as important to Luton Town supporters as Leeds United is to Leeds supporters. It doesn't matter how many supporters you've got, it still means the same.'
Nice one Mike - we're all with you on that one, however, three points tomorrow would be nice too!
