    Fully deserved for Liverpool. We have no idea what to do with the ball when we go behind. We just pass sideways or backwards.

    Next game against Stoke is crucial now. Hopefully we can win to drag them right into it.

    Why would Gerrard be getting stick off his mates for his hair? Looks like a generic short haircut to me.

    Still think getting rid of O'Neil was a good move, but appointing Di Canio is......
    .......
    .......

    ridiculous.

    Might be wrong on this, but it seems to me that Di Canio has done pretty well at Swindon but not really well enough to warrant being in contention from PL jobs. No doubt the fact he was never out the news for his antics has helped raise his profile as a manager a bit.

    Di Canio has now been appointed Sunderland boss. David Miliband has resigned as vice-chairman of the club.

    David Miliband quits connections to Sunderland because Di Canio is a raging nazi.

    Radio 5 calls former Sunderland defender Michael Gray to discuss O'Neil firing, talks to Glasgow student Michael Gray instead.

    A few mates are Swindon fans, said he's clearly got something but is a total martyr and everything is about him, and not the team. Mental appointment imo, and I can't stand O'Neill.

    Admirer of Mussolini rather than Hitler, making him a fascist rather than a Nazi.

    Allegedly. Although I'm not sure I need to bother with weasel words when there's, for example, an old Telegraph article that says:

    As a boy, di Canio was initiated as an "ultra", or extreme supporter, of SS Lazio (the initials stand for Societá Sportiva), a team founded by Italian army officers in 1900 and the preferred club of Benito Mussolini, "Il Duce", one of the founders of fascism.
    The player has, in his autobiography, praised Mussolini as "basically a very principled, ethical individual" who was "deeply misunderstood".
    He has the word "Dux", the Latin equivalent of "Duce", tattooed on his arm.

    I asked this earlier but why don't you like him? It seems a few people really don't like him for some reason. I can't see what he's done to have people say they "can't stand" him. Something to do with him quitting clubs? The way the media supposedly hype him up? Is it an Arsenal thing? Genuinely curious about this.

    Di Canio is a dick. Now I have a reason to dislike Sunderland. Shame.

    Does beg the question, would we stop supporting our club if they appointed someone we truly hated (in the proper way, not the football way)? As in to challenge our whole "team for life" ethos.

    Basically, would I stop supporting Arsenal if they appointed a clear racist (Terry?)? Or should I still get behind the team, manager and club?

    Di might be a Nazi but he's a fun Nazi and that's sort of ok in my book. Er...he's fun to listen to on the tele is what I mean.

    Campaign for them to be removed and hope they lose until they are. There is more to life than football.

    @ecu, sorry missed it earlier. I don't like the football O'Neill's teams play or his general attitude or antics. Didn't like how he left Villa either. Plus he's overrated. Or was, dunno how he'll be viewed in the media now.

    He is not a Nazi. Italian Fascism, whilst repugnant, was not Nazism.

    I think he will be viewed quite well and 'gone before his time', partially because hes actually quite a decent pundit.

    Ive always quite liked him because he properly in the clough mould. Probably the last of the 'old school' now (fergie excepted, obviously).

    True enough, except really the Ultras are just a hooligan group, and to be honest they're about as discriminating in the difference between Italian Fascism and Nazism as anyone.

    Di Canio talks a good talk about how it's actually all a very peaceful philosophy and nothing sinister at all, but it's total bollocks.

    I've said it before, if they bring in Mourinho I'll 'take a break' (for lack of better words) in supporting ManUtd. Once he's gone again I'll be back.

    Some would say that's not being a true supporter though.
    I would say to them to f*ck off though.

    Well there's a difference between stopping supporting a club because the manager is a fascist and stopping because you personally don't quite like the guy for no real reason. Stopping supporting United because of Mourinho would be ridiculous, he's one of the best coaches in the game and a great personality too.

    Care to tell him how many goals Real Madrid have scored in each of his seasons?
