    Di Canio isn't even getting a hard enough time IMO.

    Heh.

    Why didn't the Di Canio thing all kick off when he got the Swindon job? (It's because no one cared because it was League 2, isn't it?)

    Can't say I agree with the guy's politics, but I'm not at all a fan of wanting him sacked for his views.
    Well.....

    Something one of my mates (the one whose illustrations I keep pimping) wrote for WSC. So they didn't all welcome him with open arms.

    Edit: appreciate this isn't mass media

    "Fed up with the money tweets, get over it."

    "Tell me what is a 100k performance? See everyone talking about mistakes, like footballers cannot have an off day on the pitch. We are human like all of you. Grow up some of you, please."

    Sounds to me like he doesn't like the money and performance comments.

    Is that giveaway to every fan? Not much there that the players and club have to spend time or money on. They should do a Hamburg, if Harry is THAT embarrassed.

    That Hamburg BBQ is a quality idea. Fair play to them.

    Yeah, agree. Don't understand what they think they are going to get out of tweeting. They know how fickle and nasty fans can be. Best just keep quiet, especially during harsh spells. Ignore the comments.

    Yeah you can set up some clients so that you are notified only when people you follow @ message you. That way you could pretty much ignore the general lump & prole while still using Twitter to interact with people you want to interact with.

    On another subject, who would be on the subs bench?:

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Gervinho has scored a goal every 174 minutes in the Premier League this season. Olivier Giroud's record is a goal every 196 minutes.

    @Shikasama people complain that footballers are in a world of their own, disconnected from reality.

    Then they use social media to talk to their fans and people complain again!

    Keane should definitely be pushing for first team football & Bowyer is a good shout.

    Bit generous to call Marlon King a Premier League footballer & the other two blatantly not in the same class of cuntery.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Hehe. It was probably done on the day, but I just noticed that one of my mates fell for the 'Abramovich is doing his coaching badges' April Fool.

    He was 'burn my season ticket' angry.

    "I am not a racist and I do not support the ideology of fascism"

    Statement from Paolo Di Canio: http://bit.ly/108FfSm

    Can't quite tell if this is weasely worded, or just the words of a non-native English speaker. On balance, I think it's probably genuine and he should get the benefit of the doubt. For now.

    Well, as I outlined previously, I disagree and think that, in this case, his politics do matter, because he chose to make them public through an autobiography, dodgy salutes in public, and a very questionable tattoo. If I came into work and the bloke next to me had a swastika tattooed across his knuckles, or started going on about how Hitler wasn't all bad, I'd like to think I might have a couple of reservations, pending a clarification or two.

    But at the same time, he's now come out and tried to clarify his views, so I think he should probably be given some grace. People make mistakes and are also allowed to change and evolve their views and, the semantic miracle of a non-racist fascist to one side, I think as someone touched on earlier, he's probably just a slightly sweatily confused man who said something idiotic which has come back to bite him in the arse.

    If Tevez has got 250 hours community service to complete, what will happen if he leaves the country to play for somebody else.

    That's a shit load of time.
