Di Canio

Paolo di Canio calls his goalkeeper the "worst professional" he's ever seen after subbing him 21 minutes into their 4-1 defeat at Preston at the weekend. Extraordinary... :lol:

Bloody hell that's a tad harsh! I do like his honesty though, need more pundits like it! Him, Savage and Neville seem to be good new pundits but with Canio managing too.

I love that Di Canio says "He's arrogant and thinks he's untouchable". Pot, kettle?

It's OK because he has forgiven him now.

Pundit? :shrug: He's Swindon's manager, publicly ranting about his own goalkeeper who he subbed 20 minutes into a game for getting closed down when clearing an unnecessary back pass. Fair enough, the lad reacted badly to the decision. But you can't expect to humiliate a player like that and them to just take it. And he'll quickly lose his dressing room if he keeps making outbursts like htat about his players.

"Otherwise, the next time I sub Matt Ritchie he will come with a gun and shoot at me, and just say sorry to escape from the punishment."

He's got a column on the BBC so maybe pundit is a tad too much but i like how honest he's been about a lot of things!

It's a bit of both really, none of them are in the right. He's had this before with Leon Clarke.

As long as he keeps doing the same sort of job with Swindon as he has been doing, I don't think many can have complaints with him. He's had a few so called 'bust-ups' so far, but has been vindicated in his style of man-management in most cases I think? Ie the immediate apology of pedantic goal-keeper.

I think he's going to have a very good managerial career.

I half expect DiCanio to be the next West Ham manager. He is a legend at the hammers. Sam Allardyce doesn't play the West Ham game and will be back at Bolton soon when Coyle is relieved of his duties later this season. Ok crystal ball back in the cupboard. Although being unconventional Di Canio is a character much needed in football. Sometimes a loose cannon but sometimes a genius but always interesting.

Surely the manager is at fault for bringing a lad with a 'big limit' on as sub in a tight game? :yeahright: :D

Di Canio's looking more and more like a complete fruit loop by the day. :shock:

I thought he'd reached that stage in his playing days?
