SWINDON TOWN: Di Canio hits back at recent accusations

Swindon Advertiser: Paolo Di Canio has said he is seeking advice from his legal counsel Paolo Di Canio has said he is seeking advice from his legal counsel

PAOLO Di Canio has hit back at a newspaper story and the Twitter remarks of Andrew Black which he feels “seem deliberately slanted to damage my reputation, and shift the blame onto me for the recent problems of STFC”.

In a statement released exclusively to the Advertiser, the Italian says a national newspaper’s report that Swindon Town were forced to change the locks after he returned to the County Ground at night to collect mementos of his stay is misleading.

He also rebukes the comments made by the Robins’ former majority shareholder on the social networking site last night, which gave the Betfair founder’s account of his tenure at the County Ground.

The statement ends with the phrase “for the moment I can make no further comment on this, as this matter is now in the hands of my legal advisors.”

It reads: “Unfortunately, at the moment it seems that I have to correct newspaper articles and other comments on a daily basis.

“These appear to stem from items leaked to the press by anonymous sources that seem to be inside or close to the Club. They are often either distorted versions of what actually happened or completely inaccurate. They all seem deliberately slanted to damage my reputation, and shift the blame onto me for the recent problems of STFC.

“Today, two stories have appeared.

“The first is suggesting that the Club have been obliged to change the locks because I broke into the County Ground and removed items to which I was not entitled., This is a complete distortion of what actually happened.

“When it became clear that my time at Swindon Town Football Club had come to an end, I decided that I would clear my office of my own personal items at a time when no one else was there. Although my Technical staff had stated their intention to resign after the Tranmere Game, it was agreed with a member of the old board that they would refrain from confirming this until after a meeting on Friday (today).

“I attended the County Ground with some of my Technical staff who were still employees of the club and entered into my office to remove my personal items, including some pictures that I had asked the club to produce personally for me. These pictures documented the time when I signed for the club and our first pre-season and were personal to me and would be of use to no one else other than myself as I am sure the new Manager would not want to look at my face every day he came into the office.

“There was no force used in anything we did and the following day, Fabrizio, along with some of my Technical staff went into the club to advise them of what we had done, offering to pay for the small amount of damage which occurred from the glue holding one part of the picture in place. This damage was so small that by the time they had attended the County Ground, it had already been repaired. I would stress that I did not take anything that belonged to the club.

“In addition to this, there were a number of items that fans had left for signature, which were signed and given to the club.

“The second matter concerns the comments made by Andrew Black last night on Twitter, which does not accurately describe what actually occurred and is a misleading version of events, which in the fullness of time, I will prove. However, for the moment I can make no further comment on this, as this matter is now in the hands of my legal advisors.”

Yawn. I'm getting fed up listening to him.

Thanks for the memories PDC, but time to move on.

Andrew Black is right when he says the club is bigger than any one individual.

For my money, I have to say that Black's remarks seem much more even-tempered and reasonable than those of PDC.

tbh I don't care now PDC.

you did amazing things for us and galvanised not only the club but the town as well. however this blame culture designed always around you and to protect your reputation is only doing you more harm than good.

the fact of the matter is that when the going got tough you got out, can't blame you for that, but you did.

time has moved on now, and we have new owners, and new people. it's time for you to move on to.

i guess this is about protecting what little reputation you have left after shafting the club by walking and taking your team with you.

thanks for the memories and the promotion, but ultimately thanks for walking and not costing us a packet to get rid of you. good luck in all you do.

stfc marches on, and I for one am pleased we have been saved again from administration and that we have passionate owners who may not have tens of millions of pounds, but who have football at their hearts.

we will succeed; lets stuff pne tomorrow.

Need to let this go now and move on, or could be in danger of leaving a nasty taste of what was a very memorable period for the club.

Thank you Paolo and Thank you Mr Black, tomorrow marks the start of a new era, and a great opportunity to consolidate our position at the top of the league

This is all very sad but I know from Paolo's perspective he was working in complete isolation with no communication or clarification.

The truth will come out sadly this will damage the reputation of the club.

The budget point will be raised very shortly and SWP will be exposed.

PDC - thanks for the great memories.

Looking forward to cheering on the
lads and back to football matters.

You have left a quality side for sure.

The Andrew Black car crash pile up continues. Oh dear.

I hope this doesn't end up costing the club more money, but I suspect it will.

I just wish they'd speak to each other & settle it privately, rather than all this public airing of dirty laundry.

Loved every moment of Paolos tenure, buy as has been said by many before , the timing and the way of the departure was very ill judged.

All Paolo had to do in my opinion was to sit tight, wait for the take over to go through or collapse, then make his move. Eigther he liked what Jed was offering and stay, or if he didn't like it, then go. If the deal collapsed then he could walk out.

In all options Paolo could have walked out any way he liked with his head held high, salute the fans and say I tried.

All of this fighting and back stabbing need not be taking place if a rational approach was followed. Paolo is hot headed and impulsive, but I feel he has been getting poor advice.

The Paolo era is over, no way is he going to come back, even if some thought he was. I would be one that would have liked him back, but the way this is all playing out in public is getting very bitchy. Too much has been said by both sides.

The only reason its still being reported is cos Paolo likes the attention and the media just love digging in the dirt. Tthe only people that are being hurt are JW, AB and PDC. Just let them get on with it.

I've given up caring, got more important things to think about now. STFC have got a title to win, so lets get on with the job in hand and win the bl00dy thing.

Simple question, when you handed in your ticket why didn't you give your keys over and clear your desk at the same time. That is what normally happens.

There is NO question of wrong doing in the legal sense as "he sought not to permanently deprive the owner of any goods", nor was there "breaking and entering" as he used keys issued.

All very sad after doing and achieving so much and having gain so much respect on the pitch with superb results. I've said before, since the embargo I thought he managed better and the team gelled better as the team almost picked itself and players had gained better understandings. Big pity to end it in a slanging match. If you are so straight and honest then why do you need a legal team ? because honesty always wins in adversity and it is self proving, so why hire solicitors etc.

You obviously have a skill in management, but you are mentally ill and a little pathetic to be honest. Sling your petulant hook and let us carry on with our 'leagua 1' club that you looked down your nose at. Let us get someone in who has 'real' commitment, 'real' staying power , 'real' loyalty..me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me....sod off Paolo.

It was obviously someone inside the club with either a grudge or a few quid to make for releasing the story of PDC returning to collect his things.

Paolo, almost everyone has enjoyed your time with us and we're sad to see you leave. We don't want those memories spoilt by dragging this on any longer.
I would have loved you to stay but life always has a way of giving us a swift kick in the b*ll*cks when least expected.
I'm still gutted but it's time to move on.
New board, new plans and hopefully new investment. Wish you were here to lead us forward as I think you and your team are as good as it gets and with the new board, who knows where we could have gone.
Ciao.

For my part, up until a couple of days ago I would have welcomed him back with open arms. Now though, I don't know.

As each day comes and more info emerges, PDC image worstens.

IMO and probably many others do not agree with you and no need for any aggressive threats to leave.

Whatever your own opinions are Paolo started with us with no players and in the basement - today we are top of League 1.

Thank you Paolo and I do not blame you for stating your side of the story which actually has been consistent all along IMO.

Seebeck 87 Ltd need to act correctly and swiftly to fully unite again all STFC supporters - I can ignore the Paolo haters, not sure they can do the same to those taking a different position!

Tough game again tomorrow, PNE won 2-0 against Bournemouth so the team needs our full support - both pro and anti Paolo supporters.

Let the protagonists argue amongst themselves, please.

Yes ER quite right, I'm sure all Town supporters are firmly behind Ward and Miller and Digby come to that, but most of all solidly behind all our guys whether on the pitch or on the bench. After this last few weeks they are to be commended for their professionalism in these difficult and testing times. Big shame we have lost the man who put us on top of the league, but we need to move on the leave those that have issues sort them out and leave the club out of it. We now have new owners and we must show our support to them, as well as gratitude for the old consortium who buried so much cash in this money pit, a lesson the new guys must learn from.

In all options Paolo could have walked out any way he liked with his head held high, salute the fans and say I tried. All of this fighting and back stabbing need not be taking place if a rational approach was followed. Paolo is hot headed and impulsive, but I feel he has been getting poor advice. The Paolo era is over, no way is he going to come back, even if some thought he was. I would be one that would have liked him back, but the way this is all playing out in public is getting very bitchy. Too much has been said by both sides. The only reason its still being reported is cos Paolo likes the attention and the media just love digging in the dirt. Tthe only people that are being hurt are JW, AB and PDC. Just let them get on with it. I've given up caring, got more important things to think about now. STFC have got a title to win, so lets get on with the job in hand and win the bl00dy thing.[/p][/quote]Top post Rebel ... EastleazeRed

Yes/no/maybe.

I think Jed is still open to it, however he is very impressed with Miller and Ward.

For my part, up until a couple of days ago I would have welcomed him back with open arms. Now though, I don't know.

As each day comes and more info emerges, PDC image worstens.

Time will tell though.....
As regards to PDC's image worsening i think he is seeing this and hence the legal team etc etc etc.
I mean his image is worsening, not having it worsened by others unjustly which is what he is claiming.

Where will this end, Black counter claiming?

All very sad after doing and achieving so much and having gain so much respect on the pitch with superb results. I've said before, since the embargo I thought he managed better and the team gelled better as the team almost picked itself and players had gained better understandings. Big pity to end it in a slanging match. If you are so straight and honest then why do you need a legal team ? because honesty always wins in adversity and it is self proving, so why hire solicitors etc.
Hi Wiz

Only thing it seems you and I have in common (apart from age :-( ) is that we will both be cheering on the lads tomorrow!

Let's just face it - you are either for or against Paolo - end of.

Let's get back to football talk - Miller in the dug-out tomorrow?

IMO and probably many others do not agree with you and no need for any aggressive threats to leave.

Whatever your own opinions are Paolo started with us with no players and in the basement - today we are top of League 1.

Thank you Paolo and I do not blame you for stating your side of the story which actually has been consistent all along IMO.

Seebeck 87 Ltd need to act correctly and swiftly to fully unite again all STFC supporters - I can ignore the Paolo haters, not sure they can do the same to those taking a different position!

Tough game again tomorrow, PNE won 2-0 against Bournemouth so the team needs our full support - both pro and anti Paolo supporters.

Let the protagonists argue amongst themselves, please.

I didn't say it was lies, I just said IF someone was telling porkies. Only two people know the truth .
But IF they (ANYONE) were telling lies about ME I'd introduce them to Pic.

I have a lot to do before getting to STFC tomorrow but it will be done, hell or high water, wind, fire or flood, snow included.

The only thing I ever really had issue with him over was, the name/shame/blame culture. He did very well here and I do fear now he will be remembered for the actions of this week as opposed to the rest of his tenure, big pity. Disagreements such as the Black/Patey/Canio trillogy are best left between themselves or in the privacy of the board room.
To be very honest I was very surprised when Black started this tweeting stuff, almost like kid at school, it wasn't me miss, it was him, grown men. They should have had it all out face to face, thrown in a few expletives and all moved on.

When will they all understand, the team and the club come first for us.
My hope is we never ever have to go down the route of the last few weeks ever again, the club has been sullied in public, big shame, it doesn't deserve that. I'm glad the players have risen above it all, and, like you all I want now is a nice long period of calm, success and stability. Winning the next two games will rebuild bridges and put things into a calmer mode, more constructive outlook, and you know what they say, time heals. Perhaps a few may even find it within themselves to think again in a more mellow tone of the last few weeks events. they say, time is a healer, I hope so.

Football's a results business, so such a shame all this is overshadowing his team's fantastic achievements on the pitch, hopefully the tit for tat sideshows will fizzle out quickly.

Big game tomorrow, can't wait.

Just before turning in, I would like to offer my thanks to SAM MORSHEAD and gang, for trying to do what ever they could and bring us what ever was happening during the last few weeks and through a difficult time. Maybe sometimes its hard to report on stuff that is thought to be happening but might not be happening and waiting for a promised statement that doesn't happen etc. Keeping someones trust and not repeating something until you have been given the nod is not always easy especially when folk are baying at you for stuff you cannot repeat or cannot print for legal reasons. Well done lads, you tried hard I am sure, hopefully after tomorrow you can have Sunday off, or is there more to come we don't know about yet ?, LOL

Don't shout back DSTFCR but I thought it was Thursday he reclaimed his personal belongings? - he was still technically the manager then so it was his office.

He did check out the safe however but there was no money at all in there and it might be that way for quite a long time ahead too!

This car crash is now in danger of becoming a motorway pile up. I've said before, no one comes out of this unscathed. Not Paolo, not anyone. Only the players. I for one will miss him. I'm gutted he's gone. It shouldn't have ended like this but it has. Enough! Since 1950

Well done lads, you tried hard I am sure, hopefully after tomorrow you can have Sunday off, or is there more to come we don't know about yet ?, LOL
Thanks.
Well said Wiz!agree with that,but he can't have Sunday off!something bound to happen in that best selling soap Swindon Town FC lol.......next episode?????

I would gladly have Paulo back. Get him back draw a line under it and move on! If Paulo doesnt like the new board or vice versa then go at the end of the season - simple. Everyones a winner.

All very sad. PDC has been the one making threats and accusations for the last umpteen months. Black has just chosen to wait until now to defend himself. I think PDC has probably been badly advised by Spencer. Between them, they have cooked their own goose.

'but I changed my mind'

This has been troubling me all day - if only he (AB) did not change his mind we MIGHT all just be slinging insults at Pack, Green (donkey, not even good enough for horse meat) and BWP who Grim reckons is the worst striker we ever had!

Here's my two cents worth on all this.

After reading Black's twitter rant last night, it seems to me that Black was concerned that Wray was giving Di Canio whatever he wanted because Wray was a West Ham fan. Black got involved and half heartedly committed to a project with an exit strategy that was poorly planned. As a businessman, you always have an exit strategy when in business. Black's timing of the departure upset the apple cart good and proper with this one.

Black took Wray out of the business as he thought Wrays' personal love of football was clouding his judgement in his job. This is when the relationship between PDC and Club broke down quickly.

Patey was brought in on the agenda to sell the club. What was not on Pateys' agenda was to work with Di Canio to move the club forward. PDC became isolated and alone. No information and no support. The sale was pushed through at an extreme rate of knots and missed the deadline, which Black had set. Ritchie was sold to keep the club afloat, whilst the takeover was processed and that took precedent over keeping Di Canio happy. I think what Di Canio off the most was not being kept informed of what was happening. Black presumed PDC was kept informed, which clearly wasn't the case. Was it Patey's role to inform PDC of what was happening??? Because it wouldn't have been Black's role.....

Not sure what to make of this whole thing about PDC and Spencer proposing a contract with a Monday deadline.. The only thing I can put it down to is a massive amount of frustration by the whole thing, which again - I can't blame PDC for.. I would be too if in that situation.

That brings us to the latest goings ons and legal threats. Personally, I don't think Black was in the position to comment on PDC having admitted to only have met him a handful of times and I agreed that the story about 'braking into the club' and comments made by Black were to taint the perception of PDC as a person. I'd be leaving it in the hands of my lawyers too, all things considered.

One man is not bigger than the club but none of the fans would dare argue with the fact that PDC the heartbeat of the club and the fans. Would I welcome him back? Without even thinking about it, of course I would. Chances of him coming back - He's got a job to finish in my opinion!

Hi Wiz

Only thing it seems you and I have in common (apart from age :-( ) is that we will both be cheering on the lads tomorrow!

Let's just face it - you are either for or against Paolo - end of.

Let's get back to football talk - Miller in the dug-out tomorrow?
I have a lot to do before getting to STFC tomorrow but it will be done, hell or high water, wind, fire or flood, snow included.

The only thing I ever really had issue with him over was, the name/shame/blame culture. He did very well here and I do fear now he will be remembered for the actions of this week as opposed to the rest of his tenure, big pity. Disagreements such as the Black/Patey/Canio trillogy are best left between themselves or in the privacy of the board room.
To be very honest I was very surprised when Black started this tweeting stuff, almost like kid at school, it wasn't me miss, it was him, grown men. They should have had it all out face to face, thrown in a few expletives and all moved on.

When will they all understand, the team and the club come first for us.
My hope is we never ever have to go down the route of the last few weeks ever again, the club has been sullied in public, big shame, it doesn't deserve that. I'm glad the players have risen above it all, and, like you all I want now is a nice long period of calm, success and stability. Winning the next two games will rebuild bridges and put things into a calmer mode, more constructive outlook, and you know what they say, time heals. Perhaps a few may even find it within themselves to think again in a more mellow tone of the last few weeks events. they say, time is a healer, I hope so.
Good posts Wiz, things on the up last few days it seems, but the squabbling can still be heard as the others head for the hills, not out of earshot quite yet.

Was pleased though Black made a statement, he said he would. He and Patey have worded their statements carefully, I doubt there is any real legal grievance with the content.

Time will heal but Paolo really needs to move on and just get over it. I'm sure he will have the last word however...

We've got a big game today, hopefully with a bumper crowd and with STFC alone at the top at 5 o'clock.

The takeover has now been finalised, apart from the appointment of a manager and a statement from the new Board about their intentions. It is time to move on, forget this lovers tiff/slanging match/oh yes you did- oh no I didn't.

Maybe PDC will come back, maybe he'll be at the game tomorrow, à la Macari, maybe he won't. Whatever. Let's just MOVE ON PLEASE

I am beginning to suspect that this may all be an orchestrated smear campaign against PDC.

AB and Patey's attacks have been far too measured for my liking.

Paolo "Going Public" during the embargo was probably the tipping point.

But if he WAS working in isolation at the club as he claims, then I think he had every right to.

So gutted for Paolo, don't think he really wanted to leave STFC.

Really, really, really going now but a little humour first.

South African Police hunting the murderer of a high respected beautiful young model are now said to be looking for a sawn off bloke with a shot gun.

Our European Minister has just revealed that we are not going to get lots of new immigrants from the new EC countries as feared, it seems we have eaten most of their transport, so they can't get here.

B & Q are in trouble after being raided by the Food standards Agency. They have been selling flooring with lambinit.

Thats it, G'nite and be there tomorrow.

This is just getting boring now.

Di Canio's been spinning in the Adver ever since he took over and it was refreshing to hear Black's side of things last night.

Still looks like Di Canio is attemping to work a constructive dismissal case against the club. If he did and if he won (and I think that's a big if), given some of the salary figures posted on here, I think we'd be waving bye-bye to Swindon Town.

If Di Canio had shut up I don't think he'd have come out of this too badly - he could always say that he didn't like the plans being changed (even if they HAD to be) and leave it at that. But every day it just seems he has to get banging on about poor Paolo and how hard done by he was.

Perhaps it would be better if the Adver just blocked his number on their mobile and got on with reporting about the club again.

If he did show up (and I wouldn't put it past him) it would show that it's all about him. The team need the fans to get behind them tomorrow not the distraction of Di Canio turning it into a circus.

Well, all these post on so many threads have taken so much of my time to read, I have made the decision just to look at who has posted and skip it if I know them to be anti-PdC, I won't name them, but you know who you are..

I ignore them not because I think he was god or emperor, far from it, I'm just sick to death of the paolo haters using the present situation to justify their bile despite we are top of the league.
.
I can only remember the shambles when over 20 p1ss artist left before they were faced with actually being asked to get themselves fit or take a drop in salary for failure. If I remember we were left with 4 senior players Caddis, Ferry, Ritchie and Phil Smith. Paolo had to try and get a squad ready for start of the season,
After 5 or 6 games he quickly learned he had problems and turned it round..

Some people have very short memories. I will remember Paolo with 95% affection and some concerns with how he handled certain situations.
He did more good than bad and shame on all you that agree with Black that he wa pleased to see him gone because he stuck up for what he believed in to take this club forward.

As I said lat night, if we don't win promotion you'll all be back on here as you were when Wilson failed with the same old moans that it was Paolo's fault, despite the fact you're glad to see the back of him, he cannot win can he, if we get promotion it is down to the commitment from those who follow him, if we fail it's because he walked out at a crucial time. (which is an arguement we would all agree on, huge misjudgement on his part)

All but a few are a bunch of sheep and are either stupid or blind that with 14 games to go nothing is guaranteed and our chances are in the laps of the gods, because nobody can say how this soap is going to work out

IMO only most of your posts, which of course you are entitled to display, are also extremely boring and entirely attention seeking in their own way - in a typical anti Paolo di Canio way.

You comment, not only on STFC, but on other Adver forums and you always seem to take the same stance - reactionary and in a certain political way.

I will not stoop to comment about your surname but if the Adver block Paolo, I do hope they do the same to you.

I just think it is all very sad.

Paolo was great for this club, but this collective washing of dirty laundry in public is tarnishing everything.

Anyone else who has had an Italian girlfriend, or heaven forbid, married her, will know that calm and rational thinking aren't in the DNA. Straight emotion, telling it how it is, and spontaneity, are.

There was once upon a time a way back for Paolo with the new owners, although I'm not sure it would have worked out too well, but every passing hour it disappears into the horizon.

The media must be praying that Paolo pops up agains somewhere, soon. So do I. Good luck Paolo.

I realise of the 2 issues he wishes to put straight it's probably not the most significant, but has anyone at the club actually accused him of "breaking in" so they were forced to change the locks? Seems his gripe here would be better directed at the gutter press (Daily Mail etc) rather than anyone at STFC.

Until he stands on his own two feet, without an agent holding his hand, PDC has absolutely NO future in football management and he can take his agent with him.

Pertinent part of DM story might be that Jed has to decide whether he can/should restore Paolo.

Jayden. Agree. lets move on. I'll still pay my money on saturday. Still want a win and 3 points. Life goes on. PDC, all this is adverse publicity and could probably jepordise your future employment somewhere else. David Gold already states that he doesn't want you. you used us as a stepping stone and it could come back to bite you!! Thank you you for the great ride. STFC will survive. We will reach championship level again. You will look back one day and think.... I could've been there with them.........

IF, and that's a big If now. If Paolo comes back as manager, then so be it. I said earlier, I feel he has been given some poor advice over this whole sordid affair.

I feel that if he wants to watch a game of football then come by all meens, but please. dont come with the intention to gee up support for himself.

Tomorrow is about matters on the pitch, about Ward and Miller being focused on the job in hand. Please, leave the theatricals to non match days.

If he's in the crowd and there's chants of Paolo, Paolo, or even boo's. If we lose tomorrow cos of the hostile atmosphere, then who really wins? Not STFC.

No, it may be a stunt too far. Best to stay away.

Said before, If Paolo really wanted to stay in charge, then he simply should have stayed.

The blaming has to stop.! AB saved the club with AF. PDC is the best manager we've had for years. We are top of the league, the best position in a decade.

Yes it was a bitter divorce, perhaps it would be different if only they had got to know each other, but that was not to be.

We have new owners and a different chairman. I hope Paolo can be persuaded to finish the job , as he is the best person to finish it off, but if not we move on.

We still play games on Saturday, we are still Swindon and we are still top of the league.

Roll on Preston we owe you one.

He should of pumped money until the end of season, it's a dangerous game doing this and any director being able to do this shows many clubs are at risk. The deal wouldn't of gone through with PDC as manager due to his wages, they are not £850,000 as stated, but his bonus was from Mr B and would of been close to that figure, now you know why not happy! Yes PDC is considering coming back, Mr Spencer has spoken with Jed and the talks are about a new agreement, thus the reason that only temporary deals are offered to goal keeping coach etc.

PDC being told Jed not agreeing to bonus, that was a massive problem! That's why he quit, the club wouldn't of been able to pay this, the league wasn't willing to give the green light so black pushed out PDC, once he left. Then knowing there isn't nearly a £1 million debt to worry about in the SUmmer, the club looks financially safe, so FL gave green light, just to ensure no bonus can be claimed, Black gave up all shares! Now you know!

OK let's work this out - you have returned home from the Sun Inn (others state this is where u go) and it is nearly 1 am now so probably/might have taken ur PC etc this time to reboot .... ok, I am discounting a smartfone or else the MIGHTY GUV would have been posting all night.

IMO only this was not returned to Paolo.

Your reference to a 'major league manager' refers to the game in another continent who are still trying to understand Football as opposed to a similar sport known as Soccer.

This might be why you are confused and therefore an excuse for you in your understandable confusion - poor thing

Although I fear you are just another anti PDC contributor.

IMO what Guv says makes a lot of sense. It could well be fabricated from reading between the lines but isn't that exactly what everyone else has been doing these last few weeks?

There's no doubt that whoever takes us up deserves a nice big bonus and when the management team consists of 5 top footballing brains, £1million wouldn't be far from the mark in this day and age.
If Paolo was originally willing to renegotiate that part of his contract with Jed, albeit with a cut off date, then there's probably a chance he still would.

No, he shouldn't have resigned when he did but then again the buyout may not have gone ahead if he hadn't, we just don't know.

I for one would welcome him back and we could put the last few weeks behind us.

Maybe, just maybe, the door hasn't yet slammed shut.

C'mon Paolo, we know you love STFC as much as we do. We can be a team now. Us, you, the players AND the board.
You know it makes sense.

The vast majority of the anti-brigade are understandably feeling hurt by what's happened, as we all are.
People have different ways of dealing with it.

I don't think he will either but until a new manager is signed I'll remain optimistic.

There's not one other name that's been mentioned that I've been excited about. Unfortunately noone can replace what we had pre-SWP and I'm not sure he would be the same now either. The longer it takes the less chance we have.

If, as reported, the players are having a say in it, I wonder what their views would be on PDC returning.
Would be interesting to know..

I think we'll win well today without him but I can also imagine a scenario where we lose and the man then comes back with everyones full support and we don't lose again this season.
I'd take that ;)

Jets there'd says...

It's a shame but Paolo's statement has inconsistencies in it;

He said he returned to the Club to collect some belongings with a member of the technical staff who were still employed by the club.
However, Fabrizio said after Tuesday's match at Tranmere they were all resigning the following morning.

Therefore, how were any of the technical staff still employed by the Club & entitled to be on site in the early hours of Thursday morning? It doesn't add up.

It was very thoughtful of him to think about the little bit of glue that was pulled off the wall when he removed the picture.
I wished he had been as thoughtful about the wonderful fans that backed him!

Back to the football, lets hope it goes well on the pitch today.

Surely Paulo is entitled to have his say if he thinks what has been said about him is misleading or incorrect. No one seems to be questioning the new owners role in all this. I think they need to answer why they did they not contact Paulo before the deadline to let him know they wanted him to remain manager (at least to the end of the season). Maybe Paulo interpreted the lack of contact as a signal they they didn't want him as manager. Even if they did not like him or want him surely they could held their nose until the end of the season by which time we might have been prompted? For the sake of the club the old and new owners should have moved heaven and earth to keep Paulo until the end of the season. It could be ten years before we get another chance to go up to the Championship.

Interesting reading the Friday night rants as folk return from the various watering holes. In the cold light of Saturday morning the facts are still the same. PDC is a liability to any club he has been, or will be, connected to (as a player and now as a manager) and the latest spats just confirm that fact. Talented? yes but at a price. There is no way back for him and neither should there be - he is an out and out prima donna. Over the last two years despite the success how many of us have thought that some of the rants at the ownership and the public rants at his players was just a step too far. Many I expect. Proper managers at the top of the game just do not behave in the way he does. We need a proper manager to build on the foundation that has been laid at the club and we just might start to enjoy some success for a change. Current ownership - CHOOSE WISELY but under no circumstances should you re-employ the one with an ego the size of Wembley Stadium. This afternoon we move on!!!

Over the last two years despite the success how many of us have thought that some of the rants at the ownership and the public rants at his players was just a step too far. Many I expect. Proper managers at the top of the game just do not behave in the way he does. We need a proper manager to build on the foundation that has been laid at the club and we just might start to enjoy some success for a change. Current ownership - CHOOSE WISELY but under no circumstances should you re-employ the one with an ego the size of Wembley Stadium. This afternoon we move on!!! redhouse rover

It was claimed the statue was dressed only in stockings and a red and white scarf.

I am amazed how many people are ready to accept Black's statement and critisise Paulo. International robin2 is closest to the mark with his measured post.

I would ask people to consider that Black was talked into joining the Fitton consortium even though he is not interested in football. Having met Jeremy Wray on a number of occasions I tend to believe him rather than Black when he says Black agreed to the 3 year plan which got Paulo on board.

Black seems a very weak individual not sure of his own mind and when he decided to pull out he tried to protect his reputation by removing Wray and bringing in Patey just to sell the club. Patey can only be described as a duplicitous toad. I met him before he had even met Paulo when he told the Stevenage chairman that De Canio is a fascist and needs to bebought down a peg. To my knowledge, Patey only attended 3 games and when he should have been selling the club in December he swanned off to the Carribean. Worst of all he is a QPR fan! I do not know who failed to tell Paulo that Ritchie was being sold but it has Pateys fingerprints all over it.

The big sadness about the whole episode is that the Football League took so much time to approve the take over. Remember, if the FL approval had happened last Monday, Paulo would still be here and working with the new board who seem like good, down to earth football fans and want the club in the Championship. I hope any legal action Paulo is considering is against Black and Patey and not STFC.

It's only right he replies to comments made by others. The press had a field day with the 'break in' story which was probably a non event. I imagine it will all calm down a bit now. I'm a PDC critic but the way some fans talk about him now is very disrespectful considering what he has done for the club. Fantastic record and hope he gets another club. The club moves forward of course but we must thank him and his team and Black also. We are top of the league and may have championship football next season.

Yes PDC is considering coming back, Mr Spencer has spoken with Jed and the talks are about a new agreement, thus the reason that only temporary deals are offered to goal keeping coach etc.
Why should he have pumped money in to the end of the season? Would you?

PDC definatly not coming back under new regime I can assure you of that and as for Phil Spencer, Jed will not even talk to him as he sussed him out quickly as a waste of space. Not sure of your sources but quite sure of mine.

Well I just can not believe how many gullible fans and obviously the anti brigade are turning on Paolo Di Canio. Yes he had many faults and his unique way of managing players which was not good at times. Why on earth many fans chose to suck up to Black the other day is beyond me and a complete joke. Read his statement again and again. The man who poured millions of his money in and did not know of the 3 year plan and what was going on at the club. After a man in his position chose to go to twitter so soon after Paolo left stinks of an immaturity of a child and let me get my bit in first knowing full well Paolo has stated it will all come out eventually and so Black wanted to get in first which in life as I know it means you have something to hide.. This is an act of a desperate man who almost by his own timescale demands sunk our club or put it into administration and yes he saved our club with his money no doubt at all but to act like this and try and portray himself as some poor man that has been bullied and did not know what was going on at the club, come on what the hell do you take us for Andrew. There are the anti Di Canio brigade lapping this up and oh thanks Andrew for telling us what happened, what a load of complete tosh. I am on no one's side and Paolo almost stitched himself up with the deadline and I am sure the outgoing board knew about the loan player money owed so knew the takeover would stall. My belief is Patey who Black is in awe with, was hired to get rid of Paolo or at least make him resign and did his job in the end as well as find the investors.He is the biggest toad in all this and that is why he was hired and fell out with Paolo almost immediately. All I would ask of fans of whichever camp you are in to wait for it all to come out which it will and then decide your own feelings. All this mud slinging is doing no good and although I found Paolo to be a fantastic manager and great ambassador for our club I certainly feel he had many faults and certainly would not want him back. We need a very level headed manager but someone with passion like Di Canio which will be hard to find but Coyle or Adkins would be fantastic. Thanks to Paolo and his team for the future but please move on like we have to here at STFC.

Di Canio's been spinning in the Adver ever since he took over and it was refreshing to hear Black's side of things last night.

Still looks like Di Canio is attemping to work a constructive dismissal case against the club. If he did and if he won (and I think that's a big if), given some of the salary figures posted on here, I think we'd be waving bye-bye to Swindon Town.

If Di Canio had shut up I don't think he'd have come out of this too badly - he could always say that he didn't like the plans being changed (even if they HAD to be) and leave it at that. But every day it just seems he has to get banging on about poor Paolo and how hard done by he was.

Perhaps it would be better if the Adver just blocked his number on their mobile and got on with reporting about the club again.
IMO only most of your posts, which of course you are entitled to display, are also extremely boring and entirely attention seeking in their own way - in a typical anti Paolo di Canio way.

You comment, not only on STFC, but on other Adver forums and you always seem to take the same stance - reactionary and in a certain political way.

I will not stoop to comment about your surname but if the Adver block Paolo, I do hope they do the same to you.

As for my posts on other Adver forums, I doubt I've posted on more than half a dozen threads outside of the ST ones.

As for my posts being boring - fine. I just find it equally boring to read posts that are little more than "Paolo = god, Black and co = evil, Red Army! Red Army!"
