Di Canio - At Least He Didn't Nazi Salute Us!

Di Canio - At Least He Didn't Nazi Salute Us!

I`m in two minds about this.

On the one side I think, 'I could not give a stuff` and we did sing eff off Di Canio...

On the other side, 'what an absolute berk`!

Having a go at away fans? He just has to be the star and the centre of attention doesn`t he? I`m surprised he didn`t do a nazi salute to us. (See: Di Canio 'fascist but not racist' )



(go to 1m 50sec ish)

(As this doesn't show any play, I'm hoping I'm ok with this video, if not please contact jonathan at vitalfootball.co.uk for takedown notice)

Some say he was suggesting we were going down, they were going up. The Swindon Vital ed pointed out that Di Canio actually said he was saying their fans were better than ours. Hard to judge as they didn`t sing much! ;o)

Shame that he has to be such a class clown because to be fair, Swindon put up a great performance and if not for the want of better finishing, they could well have beaten Villa, they certainly had the lions share of possession.

Decent side, nice football, just grow up a bit Di Canio... not that he ever will be able to and that, I would think, will (and he`s not bright enough to realise it maybe) mean he`ll never progress and get a top job.

Be interesting to see if he gets done by the football authorities!

I may be being a bit naive, but could it be that he is inferring to his fans that Villa are high up and Swindon are low - as in 'we may have lost fans, but that was still a great result'...

Di Canio is a real character, and I don't mind a bit of banter. But if we'd lost I might be saying something different!

Facist scumbag. Ignore him. 2 little ideas for you guys (not to do with this topic) 1. T-shirts with Benteke on and the line: 'BY EKE, HE'S BETTER THAN BENT.' 2. At the weekend (can't there sadly) sing 'You're just a ***** Paul Lambert' to MON. That is all x

He was pointng to us saying either "youre on your way down and Swindon are on the way up" or, "you Villa fans are ***** and the Swindon fans are way above you". Either way the guy is a tosser. Mind you, I thought that before the match, so no change from me.

Errrr, just looks like he was saying his fans were great and better than the villa fans, i can understand that, even if they werent. He is of course going to big up his own fans, they are the ones he sees every week and will ultimately be the ones calling for his head if they fail. Nothing to see here, just a bit of banter and PR.

You do need characters in the game, but he does annoy me because he always has had to be centre of attention, he has little to no grace. I think if he was your manager, you'd love him. Sort of a 'he's a nutter, but he's our nutter' mentality!

Just a bit of fun! Football banter is great, as long as it doesn't go too far which this didn't. We'd probably be loving it if PL too the p*** out of our opposition!

The biggest ego at Swindon Town is Paolo. He will say that himself. He walks to the beat of his own drum,Ask a few Swindon fans, we do cringe at some of his actions but we love it. That said, if he was another teams manager I would hate him, He's a tit at times but he's our tit and thats why we love him! His reaction when we scored our second......

I suppose calling Di Canio a Nazi offers some consolation for Villa fans, on a night when they were lucky not to lose, but it can't cover up the fact that Villa collapsed once they were put under pressure. There is no doubting which set of fans were the happier and which fans took solace in their relief.
