SWINDON TOWN: Di Canio wants to avoid emergency loans

First published in Sport by

PAOLO Di Canio does not want to be forced into making emergency loan signings after the transfer window slams shut, stating he is determined to bring in players on longer-term deals before Friday’s deadline.

The Swindon Town manager is keen to recruit at least two new faces over the course of the next three days as he looks to avoid a situation where he is required to use the short-term loan market to bulk up his squad.

Speaking to the Advertiser after Tuesday’s remarkable 4-3 victory at Stoke in the second round of the Capital One Cup, he said: “I don’t want an emergency loan, I want a player who has to sign for us a minimum of six months. Then maybe they sign in January but six months they have to feel part of the cause otherwise it’s difficult.

“I told you since I made the decision a few weeks ago about what’s happened. We want to do this quickly, especially because in a few days’ time the window closes.”

The Italian was pleased that his players will have an extra day’s rest following their exertions at the Britannia Stadium, with their League One trip to Preston taking place on Sunday.

And he feels 24 hours of recuperation is just what the doctor ordered after an epic effort in the Potteries.

“Absolutely yes, especially after you have had 120 minutes because the problem is not only physical,” he said. “The problem is in your brain because when you spend this energy you work double, it’s very expensive to play against Crouch.

“Against another big giant no because you don’t go under pressure more, you play 250 per cent because all the details are crucial.

“When the ball lands you have to react quick because they react quick, you have to do this even in League One but I used to play at quite a good level and when I used to play against, for example, Wigan or maybe Manchester United I remember I was much more tired at the end of the game – especially in the cup after 120 minutes.

“You have the moment where you spend a lot of energy mentally and then you finish the game, you win in this manner, you are empty. It is difficult to recharge the battery, especially at this level.

“Now it is up to me to help them understand and especially the youngest recharge the battery. Tommy Miler, Alan Navarro – they don’t make me worry. For me I worry more about the youngest.

“I have to help them become top players for this level thinking what is done is done, it remains there and no one can change it but now focus the attention for next week.”

I love the way he just lays it out. It was a real coup bringing Di Canio into the nest.

Wot's Paolo talking about?

I'm glad the players understand him. Could it be he speaks in a secret code that the opposition (and me) don't understand??

Paolo's atitude is spot on as always.

I interpret his thoughts as.
At the final whistle,Tuesdays night result is now history. You can not change that fact. We have a game at the weekend and we have to focus on that. We need to recover our strength, regain our fitness, recharge our mental attitude. Then, as a team, as one united unit, go out there at Deepdale and give 'em hell.

I must admit that I was impressed with the players post-match on Tuesday. Rather than turn it into a party on the pitch, it was a brief congratulations to each other, clap the fans and then tried to make their exit. Their attitude seemed to be job done now let's focus on Preston. It was Paolo who quite rightly pulled them back to take a bow.

It was in response to why he kicked Collins in the arse after his 2nd goal
.
Di Canio: People sometimes misunderstand. I have my way to celebrate with my players. I know how to encourage them to not give up. I thought that now that he’s scored a second goal maybe we have a tactical strategy… We have to spend all our energy pressing everywhere… If I didnt kick him in the bottom th efirst few minutes after hed go blurry. I know my chicken. I call my young players chicken. They have to understand… I kick him to say don’t relax, don’t switch off.”

Thanks LR, I wondered if it might have been that. But I heard that interview and I thought he said "chicos" - possibly without the s, so may have sounded like "chicken". But I think chico is Spanish, so I've managed to confuse myself now!

Well we've ruffled a few feathers but now it's time to hatch out a new plan for Preston as we don't want to be crowing about our success and not scratching around in the mud.
- Corn-y I know but eggstremely funny in my book.

Draw for the 3rd Rd is tonight on Sky but does anyone know if it is before, after or during half-time?

Ignore my previous ramblings. Just listened again.

It's a pity we didn't play Stoke at home. We'd have probably got a bigger attendance than the poultry 9,000 they had. Sorry - just had to get that one in!

SAP, I'd be amazed if they waited till tonight to do the draw and then did it before the game finished.

Thanks London.

The trouble is with Paolo I spend half of the time watching the game but keep being drawn to watching him on the touchline.

What an amazing bloke he is.

Fawlty Towers gets a new lease of life with Paolo's antics aka John Cleese on the touchline.

Fast becoming my favourite all time Manager at Swindon and I have seen a few !!
