SWINDON TOWN: "I'll do my job...you do yours"

Swindon Advertiser: Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio

PAOLO Di Canio has taken an unprompted swipe at Sir William Patey after the Swindon Town chairman upset his manager by suggesting more diligence needs to be taken in the signing of new players.

On Tuesday, Patey revealed that the transfer embargo hanging over the club had been lifted thanks to an injection of equity by majority shareholder Andrew Black, handing Di Canio the funds to bring in reinforcements.

However, he suggested that any further additions to the squad should be screened more thoroughly to prevent players carrying knocks from joining Town - as happened with the capture of Giles Coke from Sheffield Wednesday.

One such individual could be Coke’s Wednesday teammate, Kieran Lee, who the Advertiser understands has been the subject of interest from the Robins over the past few days, while another Owl in Gary Madine was strongly linked with a loan move to the County Ground yesterday.

Evidently, Patey’s comments did not go down well with Di Canio.

When asked at his press conference prior to this weekend’s clash to Walsall about the possibility of new players being drafted in, he said: “I take advantage of your question because I also want to clarify something that went out.

“It’s far from the truth when someone is talking about being careful bringing in players, having medical tests because of the Coke situation with Sheffield.

“The people speaking have to understand and know exactly how we work.

“Every time we have a specialist and a specific medical test with every single player - even if we loan one player for one day.

“The Coke situation was the last day of the transfer window.

“We didn’t have enough time when he was travelling down and if we had signed him before anyway we called the physio at Sheffield and asked if this guy had a problem in the past.

“Just because three days before he played against Fulham in the cup, he was fully fit.

“Anyway, even if we made a specific medical test, it is a problem that you can’t discover if someone doesn’t mention the problem.

“It is under the foot, not in a joint. It’s a chronic inflammation that you discover if someone tells you they had a problem in the past.

“Nobody mentioned this problem.

“Before speaking the people have to have knowledge of what we have done in the last few months and then maybe they can say something.

“There is no reason to mention that we have to be careful.This is my job, this is our job.

“The people at the top, in the board, don’t have to speak about this job.

“They have to put in money or not put in money if they don’t want to but not talk about fitness.

“They can ask ‘why this and why that?’ but not talk about being careful like there was a mistake made by Paolo Di Canio, Phil Spencer, the physio. No, no, no.

“We were perfect in every single situation. We did a fantastic job.

“We don’t have to be careful, we know how to be careful, we know how to work.

“Everybody has to sort out the financial problems if they care about this club and the squad.

“They can care about the club but not about the squad.

“In my opinion, a normal club should care about the club and then about the squad, which is the heart of the club and don’t mention about transfers.

“We know what we’re doing.“We have already done history with this club.

“Someone has to do his job and see if they are part of the history of this club in the future.”

IMO these words were from Andrew Black , probably on the lines of ' make sure this money isn't wasted, and SWP is just the spokesperson.

I think its a shot over the bows for PDC , who reacted as expected, after the long lead and freedom he was given by JWray.

I am a PDC fan but his immaturity is beginning to grate. He hates it when the Board make statements about the playing staff - however banal, but is happy to talk about them, the embargo and modus operandii. It works both ways Paolo, so please grow up and behave like a man, like a professional (as he is always using that term). Other than that Paolo, you have my support and your passion is exactly what the club needed.
.
A nice 3 points tomorrow will do nicely.

I agree.

I am sure the 'due dilligence' remark was also about not wasting the money as well as injuries and looking into contract specifics.

It has become more than obvious while it is ok for the manager to speak out about the players, its not on the cards for the owner to speak out about the manager through his mouth piece the Chairman.

Coke is not alone is he, just look at Atiku, Esjas and many other players that have been re cycled here. I think it owner has a right to express a concern over the way his money is spent, and then there was the Czech guy, how much money did that cost us, Magera, might be a good player but just didn't fit in here. Pity, but the costs must be adding up.

The very last thing we need is for Black to give up on this club, especially given the huge amount of money he has willingly put in.

There seems to be a Witch hunt against Pdc and I'm getting fed up with it . The headline is wrong Pdc isn't exactly taking a swipe but explaining how he is with his players and saying they all had good medical tests apart from Giles coke and his injury wouldn't have shown up any way .

Put it this way and in a simple way.. There is one person who could tell Pdc he had a injury because it was a part of the foot that isn't tested as its not a joint or a muscle and that person was coke .. All our injurys have been picked up in games

All you Pdc witch hunters better be carefull because you don't know what you got until its gone

Some of you early risers must wake up in a right strop. moan moan moan.

PDC has done wonders for Swindon. We are depleted through injuries and yet still up there. Oh, by the way, we were champions last year.

He and his staff work their socks of for Swindon beyond the working hours many other managers would. So why wouldnt PDC be a bit sensitive about a careless remark from a chairman which seems to imply that this guy Coke wasnt checked out properly. If I was working really hard and managing a company and the chairman made a comment like that during a difficult period after so much success I would be pee'd off too.

Many teams would love to be in our position in the table. We got more injuries because of a cup run. Its normal to need to seek additional players at these times but he couldnt and not all loanees work out.

PDC thanks for getting us promoted, thanks for the cup runs, thanks for maintaining a health position in league 1 despite the player injuries and please ignore the early risers who dont seem to know how fortunate we are to be in this position in the league.

So this will be another anti PDC day. Pathetic. He signed such bad players that he only won the league at the first attempt by five points. Such bad players that we lie one place outside the promotion places. Such bad players that we only just managed to scrape cup wins against Bristol City, Huddersfield,Wigan, Brighton, Stoke and Burnley.

Don't worry guys you'll drive him out and all the dull, passionless days will return. And all the moaners can sing their hearts out "f**k off Di Canio" if we are lucky enough to play a top side in the cup whose tens of thousands of fans sing "we've got Di Canio" with pride.

I'm not sure if criticism is justified on medical grounds of some of PDC's signings. Fan of his or not though, you do have to say that some of his signings in the past have not lived up to expectations.

Fans also have a right to an opinion and the majority are delighted to have PDC as manager, but have concerns over his transfer policy. He acts like a kid in a sweet shop, seemingly buying up anyone and trialling them once we have signed them rather than before.

More due diligence should be done on signings as we are throwing too much money at players who are apparently good enough to be signed then to discard them weeks later as not being up to the job. The list is endless over his time in charge.

Also, PDC has whinged about the embargo and the need for players for so long, you would have thought he would have all his targets would have been lined up and signed on the dotted line as soon as the embargo was lifted.

A large % of fans adore him some don't,and god forbid to get anyone sacked via player and fan power.
However he never knows when to shut up, The Town are out ofthe Embargo yet we read this in the morning paper.
Of course could be a load of crap.
All I hope is he does find suitable cover during the loan period and gets on with his job without telling the World.Just got my filght tickets for lateNov.Dec so will see 5 games,however will forget about the CG meat pies

You can not have it both ways moan when we are kept in the dark and moan when Pdc lets out a few home truths. Players are to wrapped up these days!!

It's amazing how everyone sees it differently. I'm glad I'm an eternal optimist but I'll say it again I thought you had to be supporting the Town. How wrong am I?

Was thinking last night about the "famous five" he signed before the end of the transfer window.

It occurred to me that after getting rid of Caddis for his (admitted) lack of training he signed both Ward and Bostock not only for their footballing talent but what they would bring the group as a whole, particularly for the youngsters. Ward very health conscious and Bostock with his beliefs being a very calming influence. Reinforcing the managers beliefs that these players are professional athletes like Olympians and should live accordingly.

It is amazing to me that all this talk of disaster. Ferry lost his mate Caddis but seems to have matured (see walking home from ground with partner and baby) and is now being far more consistent in his performances. He's always been a fans favourite because he's a ball player and a character but his total commitment and runs, for 90 minutes has been impressive. Impressive also against Sheff Utd as he talked LT through the game, pointing to positional spots for him and cajooling him as the game moved on around.

Of course there was a high turnover last year as Paolo tried to get to grips with learning what was needed. The idea that any manager only buys perfect players is just laughable. Bebe for £9 million anyone? Just remember Paolo signed Wes which is as good as five signings. Dismissing this years intake after 16 games seems a tad premature to me.

I will continue to stick my neck out and say we will still win the league. Love one day to see everyone behind the team, manager and board.

Yes they do and having read the article I think Paolo is aware of this but is defending himself, which he also has a right to do. The way he often talks in detail about a player's injury suggests to me that he and his staff are more thorough than anyone we have had before.

He has brought in some poorish players but all manager's do, Alan O'Brien springs to mind.

I have never agreed more with a post. The real hero here is Black and I think Bill is sounding like the perfect spokesman for him.
LR, how does our scouting setup compare to other clubs in the league? No expert on the matter but it is embarrassingly obvious hat Paolo/Spencer are very lacking in this department. Should more emphasis be put on scouting?
As for accusations of moaning, the only moaning I'm seeing this morning is from Paolo blaming everyone else again for hidden injuries etc......that particular buck stops with you my friend.

Very strange last line. Why are you "truly concerned"?

STFC are 7th in the league, great chance this year of promotion and financially secure.
This is the least concerned I have been for years!

Still find it strange everyone cares what is said to the press by the manager/board/player

Good post in pdc i trust he will get the best out of the players. After the villa game pdc said it would take 3 games to get back were we want to be playing as these games take alot out of the players. Pdc was a prem player for many years and wants swindon to try a be at a standard thats prem league,thats from the training fitness all the way from youth to first team. I dont think we will hear much of players going out now like they did in the wilson era. pdc is doing a great job lets just all get behind pdc and the whole team.

You cannot blame Black for having some reservations on how is money is being spent. He has so far poured millions into STFC and for that we are all very grateful.
We are now on our third Chairman since the bail out etc, and also we have had Malpas, Wilson, Hart and now the present man in charge, but on paper we are no further forward than when the take over took place. We are still in L1 despite all the money poured in. Despite his undoubted achievements last season and signs of further success this term I do feel Black has more than a right to say, " Hey, Just be careful with my money please". I don't think anybody can blame him for that. Our manager was lucky to find Wray and have the whirlwind they did last season, but I can see Black's point of view as well.

A bit of caution before spending somebody else's money is not a bad thing, and given we have signed players for money and let them go for free is not always prudent book keeping. Black is entitled to voice an opinion, he owns the club, without him, we are nothing, perhaps the manager should consider that before basically telling him to mind his own business, STFC is his business, he owns it, and he pays ALL the wages.

Agreed, the board have every right. There is no doubting last seasons success and the signs are there for more this season, but the "Rose tinted" need to realize that Black has been propping up this club to the tune of around £14m or maybe more, and he is entitled to comment through Patey his mouth piece.

For a professional diplomat, I thought some of SWP's comments in his interview of Tuesday were far from diplomatic and I thought at the time, that I hope he has discussed these matters with Paulo previously. ie. he criticised Paulo for his, what I thought hilarious post match gestures to Villa fans. He said from now on, Paulo would only talk about football matters and comments about the running of the club should be left to SWP or his nominated representative from the board. He criticised historical matters for which he had no involvement with, ie. the lack of a written 3 year plan (saying it was hitherto only an "aspiration"), the signing of Coke etc. We all know that Paulo can be volatile and I hope SWP is quick to learn the lessons of his gaffs. Or perhaps he has another agenda? Either way, he got it wrong.

Deary me some of the newer posters on here really are comedy.

Pateys comments were ill judged, even if they were from Black he should have spoken with the gaffer 1-1.

I liked his openness and trying to connect with the fans answering questions but that one was a little too chatty and open.

It was ill judged and was always going to anger Paolo or any other manager, for me it's a step backwards and something Wray would never have said in public even if he did give that message in private. It was a clear swipe and one without historical knowledge. This article is a reaction to that and that's all. It should be smoothed over, learnt from and move on.

Paolo is reactive, I like him but he's reactive. People are far too quick to wallop him and everyone else on here. Give Patey time to get into his role and learn what he's doing. Give Paolo a break and just realise that he's firey and that's part of what makes him great and just enjoy the football. For once it's fun to be a Swindon fan, we could be with Paul Hart as manager and say Ricky Hunt as Chairman, fancy that instead ???

Gary Madine's loan move from Sheffield Wednesday to League One Swindon has been put on hold.

The striker was set to enter talks with Town on Friday but the 22-year-old has remained with the Owls squad for their game against Middlesbrough.

Madine, who has played 15 games for Wednesday this season, scoring once, is now expected to sign a deal next week.

Swindon had a transfer embargo lifted earlier this week, allowing manager Paolo Di Canio to add to his squad.

Who signed the cheques for the 4.5 million ?

Di Canio or a board member.

Sublime to the ridiculous on both ends of the spectrum it seems -

The owners have every right to take an interest in where their money's going, and far more right to an opinion than ANY of us!

On the flip side, the above nonsense is clearly based on nothing - when has he said if a prem club comes in he'll go? There was rumours of Bolton coming in and all he'd said was it's flattering cause they obviously think I'm doing well - certainly not the sign of someone who wants off at the first opportunity.

The moderates are the only ones with their heads screwed on today - those that support PDC but equally don't want him to blow the future of the club with unreasonable demands for funding. Those attacking DiCanio OR the board have totally missed the point.

Wray was not removed by Andrew Black because the budget had been blown and the club was at risk. They genuinely expected to pay the tribunal fees in stages. We were asked to pay upfront - unusual but it's happened.

JW concentrated on the football side and frankly did a very good job of defending the club and manager through various stages of hysteria.

WP in a non executive director of the HSBC. This is a man brought into oversee the running of the financial side of the club and sell a stake in it to get new investment so AB doesn't have to continue funding it alone.

Think Di Canio has a point but neither side does themselves credit by putting it in the open.

Okay Di Canio may well sign lots of players and is a pit rotational. But you could say that's his choice, his style and indeed its required as the club look tom push up. It's normal to want better players when you go up.

The results are good - Di Canio doesn't want players being 'comfortable' and that's right.

I've just read, on the BBC Sport website, that the Sheffield Wednesday player we are (were?) planning to sign on loan can't sign immediately because he has been charged with affray and GBH, and his case comes up in court next week!
He is, what's more, described as a 'striker'. Though whether one goal in fifteen appearances for Wednesday suggests that he is any better than the strikers who were on our bench for the Sheffield United game is perhaps doubtful.
Anyway, I thought it was midfielders which we are currently short of.
Regarding DiCanio; I can't help liking him, and he certainly did a great job last season. Nevertheless, in my opinion, criticising players, and particularly individual players, in public is bad man management. It might occassionally motivate one or two players, but it will, equally, demotivate others.
Paolo; please LEARN from the proven greats of football management. Which is to say, by all means let them have it in the dressing room, but support them in public.

He hasn't spent 4.5 million!!!!! The budget includeds wages for the whole season . Due to the tribunal saying we have to pay all fees up front and including there wages it took us over our budget some of the loan players may leave after the initial loan period and then that frees up more money .. I imagine with the wages there on if they stayed the whole season we would be over budget hence the embargo

The embargo was given to us because at the rate we were going we would have been over budget at the end of the season

i cant believe some people on here criticising Di Canio too much of it and you could send him over the edge.

Every manager makes mistakes with players even the best ie Fergie has made some clangers as has Wenger and all levels of managers have so some people need to cut the C**P out with their comments. Paolo has been the best thing for this club in a long time and we need to be fully behind him and accept that not all the players that we sign will turn out good that is a fact of life.
When we signed Paynter he couldnt hit a barn door at his previous clubs and when he joined us him and Austin hit 40 goals between them so there are alot of things to take into consideration when hew players are signed whether they will work well with the players here etc and style of play we have and sometimes it takes longer to adjust. Paynter made the biggest mistake of moving to the championship as no way is he good enough for that level and he is back in L1 which is his limit but he went for money and it backfired on him.
So can we stop all the rubbish negative talk and back our manager .

I agree darrey80,i see no benefit to STFC with all this bickering and back biting off the pitch being made public it puts a negative spin on all the good things that has been going on,along with this forum/comments page becoming all to predictable with everyone accusing others of being "rose tinted" or "too negative"and "kissing PDC`s arse" along with "wanting Paolo,paulo poloa and puolo out" we all know opinions differ but why does this have to mean to instance,if you have an opinion, others feel the need to rubbish it, why not express yours to the posters you are addressing without belittling them, deep down everyone with an opinion on Swindon Town fc is doing so because it matters to them,its just some have different (some very different)ways of showing it.

Okay Di Canio may well sign lots of players and is a pit rotational. But you could say that's his choice, his style and indeed its required as the club look tom push up. It's normal to want better players when you go up. The results are good - Di Canio doesn't want players being 'comfortable' and that's right.[/p][/quote]I agree darrey80,i see no benefit to STFC with all this bickering and back biting off the pitch being made public it puts a negative spin on all the good things that has been going on,along with this forum/comments page becoming all to predictable with everyone accusing others of being "rose tinted" or "too negative"and "kissing PDC`s arse" along with "wanting Paolo,paulo poloa and puolo out" we all know opinions differ but why does this have to mean to instance,if you have an opinion, others feel the need to rubbish it, why not express yours to the posters you are addressing without belittling them, deep down everyone with an opinion on Swindon Town fc is doing so because it matters to them,its just some have different (some very different)ways of showing it. Enough from me, rambling over. Steve. Brentford

Every manager makes mistakes with players even the best ie Fergie has made some clangers as has Wenger and all levels of managers have so some people need to cut the C**P out with their comments. Paolo has been the best thing for this club in a long time and we need to be fully behind him and accept that not all the players that we sign will turn out good that is a fact of life.
When we signed Paynter he couldnt hit a barn door at his previous clubs and when he joined us him and Austin hit 40 goals between them so there are alot of things to take into consideration when hew players are signed whether they will work well with the players here etc and style of play we have and sometimes it takes longer to adjust. Paynter made the biggest mistake of moving to the championship as no way is he good enough for that level and he is back in L1 which is his limit but he went for money and it backfired on him.
So can we stop all the rubbish negative talk and back our manager .
compare the players Wilson brought in with those that Paolo has bought. interesting???? we need scouts.

spot on wiz, loved the irony of adver journalist saying reading your post was a waste of time and replied saying nothing at all.Paolo needs to realise black is ill duce, not him.
So how do you arrive at £14m - do you know this for a fact or is it a figure you've just plumped for by having a lucky dip?
Hi Malky,

I think it was our accountant and share holder LR who stated a little while back now that around £14m had been pumped in since the consortium buy out. Now I may have that figure wrong, but I don't think it is far off.

I'm away now til late, have a good one tomorrow and try to bring home those three points, cheers.

Paynter had some ambition. Glad he did rather than settling for L1. So what if he's back here - nothing ventured.... Fergie and Wenger, in what must be a combined managerial tenure of some 40 years, have not signed as many duds as PDC in 18 months. I'd list them all but it would take too long. Funny thing is there are still loads of them in the team. All the best players are from Wilson's days. We paid over the odds for almost everyone, large fees to uncle Phil and pay off who we don't want. If you buy enough players at some point the combination. If not they get slated. PDC buys them so is 100% responsible for EVERY purchase made. The problem with Coke is the tip of the iceberg. That can be forgiven. What can't is the other 10-15 over-priced, injury prone, over-hyped poor signings that have been made. If you can't see that then you are stupid bordering on insane. Be a bit objective. We all love the club but this unconditional love for PDC is a joke. He's done an OK job so far. OK. Not exceptional as always moaning about how he hasn't got enough players and blaming every one but himself. He could get us back-to-back promotion and will deserve praise for that. But come on have a word with yourselves.

LeGod was Paynter was on 10 grand a week, so financial security for his family has hardly back fired has it? Better to try and fail than not at all.

2012 Paolo had a budget last year, he won the league, I find it incredible people blame him for poor signings and wasting money when in Wes alone he will have made on paper more than any loses. Personally I think all of Collins, Millier, Williams and Troy will prove to be good signings. And what about Macca? We have a manager with the belief to change a players position and make him and us better for it.

16 league games and our fans are writing our won players off. Positive mental attitude. As London has also said the playing budget is exactly that under Wilson, hardly a kings ransom and lest I'm mistaken we aren't going to be relegated.

To any other optimists out there, have a great weekend and here's to 3 points tomorrow.

you may be perfect as you never make mistakes stfc2012 but one thing is for sure you cant read - your totally negative and as some else as said on here i cant be bothered any more putting comments on here if you get negative idiots like you coming on.
Support the manager and the players. Negativity from fans breathes negativity to the players and manager and you need to be careful what you wish for as they say the grass is always greener and as for Wilson he got us relegated not long ago as PDC got us back to where we are now, so think again before you makes stupid comments.

People's opinion on players differ and change through the course of a season.

Devera, McEverley, Bostock were all rubbish after being judged too early. Also seem to remember some saying how poor Caddis is and he should not have been retained.

I am not PDC's greatest fan. His rants and public player criticisms get on my nerves. However, on this occasion, I can see why he has gone off on one. SWP is quite right, the manager needs to be more selective in his signings, but he should have made his point privately to PDC, not in the press.

its great to see PDC at work, his passion is brilliant, you could immagine him at an interview he could convince you and himself that black was white. He will manage at a higher level, just can not see him being tolerated at bigger clubs

You'd be surprised a at what clubs/fans and indeed owners will put up with for success! Just as being the nicest manager in football doesn't matter if you can buy a win, being one of the most controversial doesn't matter if you bring success. People put up with a lot if it means winning in football. Especially the board/owners and at the top level, having PDC could be the difference between a club getting 20 million for finishing 7th or 8th, or getting 50million for finishing 5th or 4th and getting European football.

I have no doubt that Paolo will manage the very best one day, I still dream however that he will be with us long enough to get us playing against the very best.

Reading some of the (without doubt) anti Paolo sneering and completely prejudiced views on this forum is beginning to grate and as history shows, the masses can sometimes be manipulated by those that shout the loudest in some astonishing ways.

We had a fantastic season last year, this year we are currently 7th with brilliant and uplifting wins already under our belt - all teams have bad results too.

IMO there is just a handful of 'fans' here in comparison to all STFC supporters everywhere that seem to question, criticise, judge, undermine, attack or just simply misunderstand Paolo Di Canio.

Thank goodness for what I believe is the silent majority - indeed vast majority - that prefer everything about the club today than in the recent past, especially and very much including Paolo Di Canio, his passion, his eccentricity and his management style.


Again, IMO (it seems so important to state this fact here too) the PDC haters are outnumbered and will remain so but one day you will have your way and he will be gone - and STFC may probably return once again to the backwaters of footballing obscrurity where we have spent so much of our time.

Our club will still remain and I will still be supporting them - but the silent majority may then not have as much hope as we do now.

The moaners will still be moaning about something however, that is absolutely certain and also without doubt!

It's the same every single season. It'll never change, until those people pass on.
.
As many have said, we're in one of our more enthralling passages of the club's history, for many reasons, and a big part of that is Paolo Di Canio and what Paolo Di Canio has done.
.
Sadly, some people will never be happy and just cannot wait for the first whiff of something negative to jump all over.

I'm not sure how Paolo gets the blame for the Coke signing. Surely Sheff Wed and Coke are at fault for that one, and whoever did the medical, presumably that wasn't Paolo or Phil Spencer?

Perhaps that's why we are now looking to get a couple more of their players as they are looking to make up for it?

I also think Paolo's signings have been good on paper, ever since he understood the league, ie signings from Wes onwards. All the signings this season have played at ths level or above, apart from Collins who has been OK.

As for Madine why on earth are we looking to sign him, in court 13 Nov for affray and intent to cause GBH? Nice!

More concerning for me is the hoof ball style of play. Why would we do that when we played such fantastic stuff at times on the ground earlier in the season. And what about the excellent tactical switch during the Coventry game, is that formation now no good either? Surely pumping up 100 long balls a game and winning at best 3 indicates that tactic ain't working!!

n his Q&A Sir Will said that a code of conduct had been agreed for handling press relations. Paolo deals with the football side he deals with the rest. Just seems to be a question of setting the borders between them at the moment. Contracts and medicals would interest both. I would rather Sir Will looks after contract terms than Phil Spencer and our physio team the medicals rather than Sir Will. Negotiation, negotiation, negotiation..

Add me to that list - have been very disappointed in recent weeks how even well seasoned posters appear to be sticking the knife in and just for good measure giving it a twist as well.

Instead of rising to the Adver bait every time they come up with a potential PdC bashing headline -why not just wait and see how the season actually pans out?

In the meantime why not cut him some slack eh!

Romain - surely you are not that thick to think we have actually spent £4.2m already?
.
Footballers are NOT paid up front but get a monthly salary like most people
.
Our spend so far is a budget based on a full years equivalent
.
So if we sign a loanee for £2k a week it enters the budget as £104k a year but if he is here for only a month it is actually only £8k spent
.
So after he leaves we get "another" £96k to spend
.
Likewise if Stevenage are paying say 50% of Risser's wages then up to Jan we will budget 50% in our total then post that 100% so that alone could send us "over" - yet if he leaves we remove ALL his wages from the budget and come "under" again
.
As for the Anti PdC rants - I'm staying well out of it and will wait for the dust to settle and the "new" or "infrequent basher" posters to disappear again

I don't think you quite understand......we haven't spent our budget after 10 games. The embargo was because we were expected to go over the budget for the season. Players don't get paid up front, they get paid monthly like the rest of us.

We will have an amount (e.g. 4.5m) for the year which will be based on expected revenues for the season. The reason we got the embargo was that the tribunal fees would have pushed the expected amount we will spend over the 4.5m by the end of the season (based on what players wages we will have paid by the end of the year etc).

The figures you are spouting that we have already spent 4.5m is nonsense, we couldn't afford to pay the players wages for the rest of the season if that was the case!

Hear hear. I'm fed up with some of these moaning plonkers on here.
I love PDCs passion and sometimes cringe at his comments but at the end of the day you're absolutley right. I'd rather have a wild card maverick than a totally dull yes man... He's the best thing that's happened to our club for years and some on here won't realise that until he's gone...
Totally agree...PDC does what he wants! He is the best thing thats happened to this club. He is passionate and cares...and I agree let him get on with his job and the chairmen get on with their jobs...Brian Clough springs to mind...looked what happened to Derby when the Chairman put in his two penneth worth all those years ago! Due diligence??? Really?? Not bad so far Champions in the 1st season and poised to take this title this season! Dont forget all of the money poring into the clubs coffers with our giant killing acts plus our trip to Wembley last year! COYR's!!!
Add me to that list - have been very disappointed in recent weeks how even well seasoned posters appear to be sticking the knife in and just for good measure giving it a twist as well.

Instead of rising to the Adver bait every time they come up with a potential PdC bashing headline -why not just wait and see how the season actually pans out?

In the meantime why not cut him some slack eh!
Thing is Malk, he doesn't cut anyone else any slack, so he mut lie and die by the sword. I am a passionate person and don't you think that we love his passion? We absolutely do, but he cannot disrespect this club and tear it to shreds. In one breath I am cheering to high heaven with some of his antics, i.e. running on the pitch, kissing a bloke in a wheelchair, telling the priviledged footballers that they look like midgets in there Range Rovers. And, amazingly, still turning out for training and matches when his dad has just died...that's incredible commitment. But he just spoils it when he calls us Leaguea one and tells us to go to Oxford if we disagree and that he will bring history to us when we already have '69 and Hoddle premiership and standing on terraces at Burnden Park in League Cup semi finals whilst he was a world away at AC Milan. I and others really, really want to love him, but there are hordes of Swindon supporters that are rapidly falling out of love with him over his antics. I just wish he would manage our team and leave it there.

Madine just scored for Sheff Wed may be he won't be coming here next week as indicated by BBC wilts. 18 Goals in Lg 1 last year so used to that division looks very much like a Lee Peacock.

It is very brave of someone to air their views on this type of forum when they can neither spell, piece together a cojent argument or point of view and attack a differing opinion to their own in the only way they appear to know how - aggressively.

LR - you are far too polite to confirm DSTFCR's actual intelligence from his answer to you but most of us do know that he must be just as you suggest.

There will be a lot more of this semi-chastising / shots over the bow....if he decides to stay.
---
Whilst I find it hard to believe the earlier posts by some on here I've been in London and twice heard from friends / colleagues that PDC is on his way to Southampton should they lose again this weekend.
...
I don't think PDC is a good choice for the Premier league but the bookies are right more often than wrong and the type of people I was talking to aren't those who go around making things up - I'm not going to bother justifying the background but upon arriving back from London a neutral also turned round and said I hear your man is heading down South after the next defeat!?...and that came from within Southampton.
----
Yes I know it could have been the cleaner's uncle;s sister's toad but it is highly unusual for these people to even talk about football at Swindon...all very strange.
...
I find it hard to believe a Premiership club would take a chance but Paolo has been posturing a bit of late, we had the change of chairman (which is not a it'll all stay the same move) and Southampton are desperate enough to give it a go - any manager going in would need a month pre-January to prepare.

All very weird in my book.

Fair play Southside7 a great post and I mean that but I love this era as I have been stuck in this boring "rut" of STFC for so many years.
My years appear to be passing even quicker now but at least this current tenure at STFC gives me passion, laughter and gets me acting like a kid again.

The day PDC leaves STFC (as it will for sure one day) will be a very sad day for me.
Yes we can all pick holes in the guy but never forget he has given us our STFC back. Put us back on a National map for good or bad.
I may be an Oxfordshire lad but what is it with us Swindon lot always appear to be moaning about something, more than most. I don't get it mate. (Not aimed at you bud).
Walsall tomorrow and as a fan of way over 1,000 Town games these are great times I tell you that !!
PDC = Legend.

Perhaps southside7 is DSTFCR in disguise or is it just that they went to the same school?

Whatever, in 133 years of STFC history you quote three events when a fan could feel proud - TWO further events last year which I am certain LR will confirm is a 66% ratio was achieved last year alone and you did not bother to quote.

I just wish so called supporters would let Paolo manage and leave it there themselves, he isn't doing too badly in my book.

Whilst I find it hard to believe the earlier posts by some on here I've been in London and twice heard from friends / colleagues that PDC is on his way to Southampton should they lose again this weekend.
...
I don't think PDC is a good choice for the Premier league but the bookies are right more often than wrong and the type of people I was talking to aren't those who go around making things up - I'm not going to bother justifying the background but upon arriving back from London a neutral also turned round and said I hear your man is heading down South after the next defeat!?...and that came from within Southampton.
----
Yes I know it could have been the cleaner's uncle;s sister's toad but it is highly unusual for these people to even talk about football at Swindon...all very strange.
...
I find it hard to believe a Premiership club would take a chance but Paolo has been posturing a bit of late, we had the change of chairman (which is not a it'll all stay the same move) and Southampton are desperate enough to give it a go - any manager going in would need a month pre-January to prepare.
---
All very weird in my book.
Sap, until now I've not listened to bookie talk of him moving, but now I think there might be something to it. he obviously looks down his nose at us being only leagua 1 and he's confirmed in his BBC column that he was ready at birth to manage in the top level and am I right in thinking his daughter is studying in Southampton? I want to adore this man but his gob gets in the way.

.It dont matter if it comes out this month or in 10 month time....well you cant spend the players wages can you as you will be in big trouble for breach of contract

WHY are people pdc bashers...
Its a forum so if people see things different than others thay have a right as a paying fan od STFC..You no the people that put money 2wards there wages and the running of the club
It is very brave of someone to air their views on this type of forum when they can neither spell, piece together a cojent argument or point of view and attack a differing opinion to their own in the only way they appear to know how - aggressively.

LR - you are far too polite to confirm DSTFCR's actual intelligence from his answer to you but most of us do know that he must be just as you suggest.

COYR's - 3 points tomorrow will send these clowns into hibernation, hopefully for the whole of the winter.
what is a cojent?
I am so pleased one of those in the anti camp has read this post and pointed out my mistake - and that the only reply you could retort too was a quick spellcheck response with out any other worthwhile comment.

No substance at all and actually quite predictable and typical.

Football in League One is not a movie, nor a parable and definately not for the faint hearted which from your own admissions will excuse you from your overwhelming misunderstandings.

Enjoy your World Cinema you may be best suited there on a Saturday or Tuesday evening - lol.

Hear hear. I'm fed up with some of these moaning plonkers on here.
I love PDCs passion and sometimes cringe at his comments but at the end of the day you're absolutley right. I'd rather have a wild card maverick than a totally dull yes man... He's the best thing that's happened to our club for years and some on here won't realise that until he's gone...
Totally agree...PDC does what he wants! He is the best thing thats happened to this club. He is passionate and cares...and I agree let him get on with his job and the chairmen get on with their jobs...Brian Clough springs to mind...looked what happened to Derby when the Chairman put in his two penneth worth all those years ago! Due diligence??? Really?? Not bad so far Champions in the 1st season and poised to take this title this season! Dont forget all of the money poring into the clubs coffers with our giant killing acts plus our trip to Wembley last year! COYR's!!!
Add me to that list - have been very disappointed in recent weeks how even well seasoned posters appear to be sticking the knife in and just for good measure giving it a twist as well. Instead of rising to the Adver bait every time they come up with a potential PdC bashing headline -why not just wait and see how the season actually pans out? In the meantime why not cut him some slack eh!
Thing is Malk, he doesn't cut anyone else any slack, so he mut lie and die by the sword. I am a passionate person and don't you think that we love his passion? We absolutely do, but he cannot disrespect this club and tear it to shreds. In one breath I am cheering to high heaven with some of his antics, i.e. running on the pitch, kissing a bloke in a wheelchair, telling the priviledged footballers that they look like midgets in there Range Rovers. And, amazingly, still turning out for training and matches when his dad has just died...that's incredible commitment. But he just spoils it when he calls us Leaguea one and tells us to go to Oxford if we disagree and that he will bring history to us when we already have '69 and Hoddle premiership and standing on terraces at Burnden Park in League Cup semi finals whilst he was a world away at AC Milan. I and others really, really want to love him, but there are hordes of Swindon supporters that are rapidly falling out of love with him over his antics. I just wish he would manage our team and leave it there.
Perhaps southside7 is DSTFCR in disguise or is it just that they went to the same school? Whatever, in 133 years of STFC history you quote three events when a fan could feel proud - TWO further events last year which I am certain LR will confirm is a 66% ratio was achieved last year alone and you did not bother to quote. I just wish so called supporters would let Paolo manage and leave it there themselves, he isn't doing too badly in my book.
Easy......I have English Literature A-Level and am into World Cinema thank you.
Football in League One is not a movie, nor a parable and definately not for the faint hearted which from your own admissions will excuse you from your overwhelming misunderstandings. Enjoy your World Cinema you may be best suited there on a Saturday or Tuesday evening - lol.
WOW
You do think your somethig else dont ya

In one breath I am cheering to high heaven with some of his antics, i.e. running on the pitch, kissing a bloke in a wheelchair, telling the priviledged footballers that they look like midgets in there Range Rovers. And, amazingly, still turning out for training and matches when his dad has just died...that's incredible commitment. But he just spoils it when he calls us Leaguea one and tells us to go to Oxford if we disagree and that he will bring history to us when we already have '69 and Hoddle premiership and standing on terraces at Burnden Park in League Cup semi finals whilst he was a world away at AC Milan. I and others really, really want to love him, but there are hordes of Swindon supporters that are rapidly falling out of love with him over his antics. I just wish he would manage our team and leave it there.
Perhaps southside7 is DSTFCR in disguise or is it just that they went to the same school? Whatever, in 133 years of STFC history you quote three events when a fan could feel proud - TWO further events last year which I am certain LR will confirm is a 66% ratio was achieved last year alone and you did not bother to quote. I just wish so called supporters would let Paolo manage and leave it there themselves, he isn't doing too badly in my book.
Easy......I have English Literature A-Level and am into World Cinema thank you.
Football in League One is not a movie, nor a parable and definately not for the faint hearted which from your own admissions will excuse you from your overwhelming misunderstandings. Enjoy your World Cinema you may be best suited there on a Saturday or Tuesday evening - lol.
WOW You do think your somethig else dont ya spiderweb..WOW YOU CHANGED THAT IN2 NUMGERS AND LETTERS.. THAT MUST MAKE YOU VERY PROUD.
I am (if I have deciphered correctly what on earth you are on about!)- good night - enjoy your hibernation.
HIBERNATION..
Way to early for that

Actually it's Wednesdays at the Arts Centre in Old Town...new members always welcome, but we're a friendly bunch and don't like bullys, primadonnas and can confirm that long hair is allowed. And for your information, just because some of us are educated and principled we are allowed to passionately follow our beloved leagua one side Swindon Town FC with passion and respect, ask my friend Phil Smith, a decent human being.

Hmmm very fair comment and observation.

Apologies offered to all as you are right OD.

Friday night is perhaps not the best night to enter into debate such as PDC.

3 points tomorrow is I hope what we all are hoping for.

Some people might consider the ridiculing of another person's spelling as bullying. It's also rather unwise to make such comments and follow them with three spelling errors of your own. Why not stick to the football?

It's also interesting to note that you are happy to knock another poster (southside7) for his balanced views, when your own posts are completely one sided.
Hmmm very fair comment and observation.

Apologies offered to all as you are right OD.

Friday night is perhaps not the best night to enter into debate such as PDC.

3 points tomorrow is I hope what we all are hoping for.

Yes, I must admit I have to take a break now and again for my own sanity. Your comment the other day about being split on Paolo is identical to mine. He is such a complex and contradictary person, I know I and others give him sh1t on here and rightly so, but that's only because some of his actions are so incendary and drive one to respond. There are good points and I feel I and others have highlighted these too. For me though, I believe acting in a certain way comes before sport and even though Paolo says he is so principled (and that's the paradox) he often falls short on this and treats people like the proverbial and this is not on in my book. Some people only see the results as important and that's fair enough, just not for me. Too much waffling from me now though, good night all.

I don't think PDC is a good choice for the Premier league but the bookies are right more often than wrong and the type of people I was talking to aren't those who go around making things up - I'm not going to bother justifying the background but upon arriving back from London a neutral also turned round and said I hear your man is heading down South after the next defeat!?...and that came from within Southampton.

Yes I know it could have been the cleaner's uncle;s sister's toad but it is highly unusual for these people to even talk about football at Swindon...all very strange.
...
I find it hard to believe a Premiership club would take a chance but Paolo has been posturing a bit of late, we had the change of chairman (which is not a it'll all stay the same move) and Southampton are desperate enough to give it a go - any manager going in would need a month pre-January to prepare.
---
All very weird in my book.
Sap, until now I've not listened to bookie talk of him moving, but now I think there might be something to it. he obviously looks down his nose at us being only leagua 1 and he's confirmed in his BBC column that he was ready at birth to manage in the top level and am I right in thinking his daughter is studying in Southampton? I want to adore this man but his gob gets in the way.
Haha love the ready at birth to manage in the top level comment lol.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him take the Southampton job. Despite apparently being born with the 'Clough gene' I just can't see a 'top 4 club' risk taking him on. Saints have no superstars so he could continue the tough love approach to an extent. I can see some if not most of their defenders getting the 30 minute sub routine though and the dug out would be in for a battering....

How's that Swindon tattoo coming along by the way?

Someone mentioned 'the Spencer & Paolo' connection.
Is the Spenser an agent, presumably a financial adviser, or does he have a pull with our manager on matters football?
If the latter, with what experience.?

Some of you seem to be missing the point that the 'quote' in the headline that sensationalises this whole article can't be found anywhere, so I can only assume it has been created by the editor.
It's bordering on criminal journalism to quote something that someone hasn't actually said so you have to wonder what the adver editors agenda actually is!

It' s a shame that some posters seem to want to ridicule the opinions of others and desperate to be in a majority.

We all have our opinions and listening to the different ones is what makes this forum so addictive.

I imagine that we all want to see the Town successful and playing good football and no doubt those who attack each other on this forum sit next to each other at matches and shout and sing the same songs. So, why get personal?

I'm not the greatest Paolo fan but I love many of the things he has brought to this club, including the national attention and shear entertainment value. I could list loads of other qualities.

But ultimately I'm a lifelong fan of Swindon Town. It's not Paolo DiCanio's STFC, it's mine and your STFC. His time here (like many others before him) is a step on his way. We stay here.

Some think he should be kept at all costs, some (I imagine a small minority) didn't want him in the first place. I always felt we had to see how it went. It went well, very well for a while. Now I worry it has tipped too far the other way.

It is Paolo who is mainly rattling cages and if I had to choose between having the current Board here and Paul Bodin's youth set up as opposed to Paolo's 'my way or no way' I'd have to say 'no way'.

I'd be happy for Paolo to stay if he showed some respect to the Board, some respect to the players (in public) and some respect to the youth set up.

And no I don't want to go up the 420 and support the Pox.

And no I don't want to receive a load of posts calling me a moron or a moaner.

I would like to here some proper arguments to the contrary.

So if we sign a loanee for £2k a week it enters the budget as £104k a year but if he is here for only a month it is actually only £8k spent . So after he leaves we get "another" £96k to spend . Likewise if Stevenage are paying say 50% of Risser's wages then up to Jan we will budget 50% in our total then post that 100% so that alone could send us "over" - yet if he leaves we remove ALL his wages from the budget and come "under" again . As for the Anti PdC rants - I'm staying well out of it and will wait for the dust to settle and the "new" or "infrequent basher" posters to disappear again[/p][/quote]Call me by my first name please as only people who i know me can call me by my surname.... I was thinking about the players that are already her,!!! as i think they might already be on a contracts so that money is already accounted for ???... .It dont matter if it comes out this month or in 10 month time....well you cant spend the players wages can you as you will be in big trouble for breach of contract WHY are people pdc bashers... Its a forum so if people see things different than others thay have a right as a paying fan od STFC..You no the people that put money 2wards there wages and the running of the club[/p][/quote]It is very brave of someone to air their views on this type of forum when they can neither spell, piece together a cojent argument or point of view and attack a differing opinion to their own in the only way they appear to know how - aggressively. LR - you are far too polite to confirm DSTFCR's actual intelligence from his answer to you but most of us do know that he must be just as you suggest. COYR's - 3 points tomorrow will send these clowns into hibernation, hopefully for the whole of the winter.[/p][/quote]HA HA.... Why do little boys think there so special newsflash YOU AINT YOUR SAD AND YOU THINK YOUR BIG AND TOUGH ON YA FLAT-TOP and only clever people have a right to quote..SO I CANT SPELL GET THE FKUC OVER IT.. Do i soubd boverd ..[/p][/quote]LOL - I am big and tough, be a pleasure to meet you, really it would! Also, guess what, I would come to your aid if it were ever necessary for a STFC supporter, even you, who might need help, even if you are a complete dork. Furthermore I do not bow down to bullies who try and make their limited point of view only by shouting (SHOUTING - if you don't understand) t) and as for the rest of your diatribe -ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz zzzzzz COYR's[/p][/quote]Some people might consider the ridiculing of another person's spelling as bullying. It's also rather unwise to make such comments and follow them with three spelling errors of your own. Why not stick to the football? . It's also interesting to note that you are happy to knock another poster (southside7) for his balanced views, when your own posts are completely one sided.[/p][/quote]Hmmm very fair comment and observation. Apologies offered to all as you are right OD. Friday night is perhaps not the best night to enter into debate such as PDC. 3 points tomorrow is I hope what we all are hoping for. COYR's[/p][/quote]Cheers! Yep - 3 points tomorrow would no doubt put us all in a good mood. It will be even better if that round thing gets propelled along the ground a bit in the process.[/p][/quote]We are so much better when we can play this way - I would offer you a happy hibernation now but something tells me you are going to see through the winter with STFC - Good! Good night.[/p][/quote]Its even better when that round thing go"s in the onion bad... GOOD BANTER TONIGHT SPIDER ENJOYED... Were do you sit in the ground? DarrenSTFCRomain

We all have our opinions and listening to the different ones is what makes this forum so addictive.

I imagine that we all want to see the Town successful and playing good football and no doubt those who attack each other on this forum sit next to each other at matches and shout and sing the same songs. So, why get personal?

I'm not the greatest Paolo fan but I love many of the things he has brought to this club, including the national attention and shear entertainment value. I could list loads of other qualities.

But ultimately I'm a lifelong fan of Swindon Town. It's not Paolo DiCanio's STFC, it's mine and your STFC. His time here (like many others before him) is a step on his way. We stay here.

Some think he should be kept at all costs, some (I imagine a small minority) didn't want him in the first place. I always felt we had to see how it went. It went well, very well for a while. Now I worry it has tipped too far the other way.

It is Paolo who is mainly rattling cages and if I had to choose between having the current Board here and Paul Bodin's youth set up as opposed to Paolo's 'my way or no way' I'd have to say 'no way'.

I'd be happy for Paolo to stay if he showed some respect to the Board, some respect to the players (in public) and some respect to the youth set up.

And no I don't want to go up the 420 and support the Pox.

And no I don't want to receive a load of posts calling me a moron or a moaner.

I would like to here some proper arguments to the contrary.
A top post sums it up completely. Its a roller coaster ride but certainly an interesting period for us STFC fans.

I don't think Paolo's going to change though - he is what he is.

Hopefully once he gets in a few extra bodies the embargo rants will stop, and if they are half decent we will get a few results so this will calm him down too.

Alternatively he could be Saints manager this time next week,who knows!

But we will still be here......

Malky, I believe you are going to Warsaw tomorrow, LOL. Give 'em a encouraging shout for me could you ? usually a very deep " Come on Town" cheers.
Well if I was going to Warsaw I should have probably left by now -that's one heck of a trek! Fortunately Walsall is a lot closer lol!

Whilst I find it hard to believe the earlier posts by some on here I've been in London and twice heard from friends / colleagues that PDC is on his way to Southampton should they lose again this weekend.
...
I don't think PDC is a good choice for the Premier league but the bookies are right more often than wrong and the type of people I was talking to aren't those who go around making things up - I'm not going to bother justifying the background but upon arriving back from London a neutral also turned round and said I hear your man is heading down South after the next defeat!?...and that came from within Southampton.
----
Yes I know it could have been the cleaner's uncle;s sister's toad but it is highly unusual for these people to even talk about football at Swindon...all very strange.
...
I find it hard to believe a Premiership club would take a chance but Paolo has been posturing a bit of late, we had the change of chairman (which is not a it'll all stay the same move) and Southampton are desperate enough to give it a go - any manager going in would need a month pre-January to prepare.
---
All very weird in my book.
Sap, until now I've not listened to bookie talk of him moving, but now I think there might be something to it. he obviously looks down his nose at us being only leagua 1 and he's confirmed in his BBC column that he was ready at birth to manage in the top level and am I right in thinking his daughter is studying in Southampton? I want to adore this man but his gob gets in the way.
I'd forgotten his daughter was down there as well

I think there's some misunderstanding about what 'supporting' the manager means. In my opinion, it does not mean agreeing with everything they do or say. It is possible, and better I think, to support them in general but retain the right to criticise them about specific things. On the whole, I support DiCanio, but I think he is wrong to criticise his players in public.

Southside,

It was a long time ago now, but (in answer to your question) I think a "cojent" is halfway between a tangent and a cosine.
I maybe wrong.
