|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Wears his heart on his sleeve nothing wrong with that and gets results top bloke.Football requires characters like him.
Came in here to post exactly this.
Still think he's another club management job away from being suitable for us, but I've been impressed with how he's taken to the Swindon role - to be honest I thought he'd probably go about it a little half-arsed and see it as biding his time for a bigger role, but he certainly seems to have gone all in.
When it happens there will be none of this the west ham way is dead, win at all cost boring b*llocks.
It's going to be one hell of a ride!
im sure after about 8 games swindon was near the relegation zone and everyone was saying hes not cut out for it but what a turnaround since then, they have won nearly every game since then. give him his dues so far
Saw his Swindon against Barnet at Underhill for the JPT match. Barnet played the better football on the night to be fair, but Swindon did try to play. Involved going wide alot which was good to see. Look at those they have a classy few players that could get them up.
Much as I'd love to see him manage us, if he were to lose three or four games in a row certain elements would begin ****ing him off and the 'special relationship' would be ruined.
Someone like him is what is missing at the moment, passion, pride and someone at the helm who gives a flying one about the team and the club more than an England job. He can be a bit extreme,should he come back it will be a roller coaster or a ride and probably end in tears. Would be worth it though.
What's slightly terrifying is....if he's capable of being that intense when in a safe position in Div 4 with Swindon Town, how unhinged he'd be in a relegation dogfight with a club he has literally tattooed on his body?
As a fan it'd be utterly brilliant entertainment, but put yourself in the owners' shoes - would you put the man in that video in charge of your multimillion pound (and multimillion pound in debt) investment? I don't think I could do it - I'd be bricking it every transfer window that he was going to stove my face in if I needed to sell someone
I know a Swindon fan really well.
They all love Di Canio who had to completely revamp a club who were on a huge losing run, lost some of there best players and in a league they shouldn't be in. (Sound familiar?)
Apparently he has got them playing really good passing football and the team never get out bullied.
PDC's managerial record sounds amazing.....and to think, we're stuck at the top of the league with this twat who's only got 20 years of experience, 4 promotions, who not only kept an unfashionable and pretty average team in the league but actually got them into Europe.
I jest of course, but let's be honest....the time to judge Di Canio is never when things are going well, but when it starts to get hard. Remember how mental this site went when Grant took Yom Kippur off....imagine what would happen if PDC ****ed off to Milan for a long weekend because his tan was looking a bit shitty.
Very much doubt Di Canio would just **** off without a very good reason.
His dad died a few months ago and he either didn't return to Rome, or he went for a day or two before returning to make sure he didn't miss a single Swindon game.

This is what i'm talking about, football should excite you, the manager, players and fans should ride a rollercoaster of emotions. Thats what I want as a fan and I have to say i'm jealous of Swindon have right now.
