Should Leeds Gamble On Di Canio?

Well he lasted 12 months longer than I predicted, but Di Canio has walked away from the Swindon job, exactly as I said he would do. There's no denying that, based on results, he has done a fabulous job, but in terms of high maintenance, he is Joan Collins, Liza Minnelli, Brian Clough, Duncan McKenzie, Eric Cantona and Jordan rolled into one. Talk about flouncing in and flouncing out again, in a little over 18 months, the Italian has thrown more hissy fits than a whole school of adolescent girls.

Dare Leeds United appoint him? Master Bates would be found dead in the Boardroom within a month. GFH Capital would flee to Syria for a quiet life. Peter Lorimer would run around in so many circles trying to stay the right side of the fiery Italian that he would explode.

And poor Paolo would look around the Leeds dressing room and wonder why he had retired. "They are all as old as me!" he would complain after the first training session. "And they are all shit!"

Replacing Warnock with Paolo would be a classic case of out of the frying pan and into the fire. But it would guarantee my continued interest in Leeds so the growing fan base of this blog will be desperate for it to happen.

Could Il Duce Di Canio lead Leeds to the promised land? Ever read The Damned United? Well Di Canio would be the sequel with nobs on. Would 43 days see him through to the end of the season?

  1. I think you are being too hard on him. When I first heard he had resigned, I was overjoyed because, like you, he was the first name i thought of. The second is another Italian, Gianfranco Zola.

    Both believe in basic footballing skills and I would bet my house neither would have let Nunez go.

  8. Why leave a club because one of your players has been sold against your wishes to join a club that has sold Gradel, Howson, Snodgrass and Bechio?

  9. Worth a gamble, I think so!!

  10. What a load of bullshit, you would be green with envy if we got him. Reading many articles from SPAM fans they would love him at Boleyn. But it will be the same as your feeble attempt to get the Olympic park a complete non starter lol lots

    Will take either Adkins or Di Cannio over the cnut you have in charge lol what a muppet, keep blowing the monkey num nutz lol

  11. Leeds is the ex Sheffield United retirement home.Any new manager has the problem of dealing with six old lads and 'Kenny Everet' in goal!

  14. The drama and the read would be good, he would shake everyone up...... yes please!

  15. The stupid / amusing thing about this is, he's far more likely to end up at West Ham than Leeds, which would be MUCH funnier !!

  16. Funny but worrying! The man is as mad as a ships cat and about as stable as the club itself...perfect match!

  17. He would be third choice for me ;

    Adkins no 1 /
    Poyet no 2 / Dropped in my estimation since he was tarting himself to all and sundry last month (poor brighton fans)
    Decanio no 3/ Good coach, Mr angry but probably exagerated.

  18. Spanner fan , just want say over 6 thousand fans went to man city , it would have been ten had city given us the tickets , I've watched Leeds for over 40yrs and I've seen them all come and go but one thing is for sure you'll never have fans like ours and i think that is at the root of your obsession with the mighty Leeds united , come out of the closet son MOT

  21. Warnock and Di Canio should swop! Il Duce would certainly liven things up at Elland Road while NW would have a better chance of achieving his record 8th promotion with Swindon....

  22. Love it ! Makes me laugh readin this !!

  23. What's it got to do with you at all, your beef is with Warnock and not Leeds, so where does Di Canio and Leeds fit in to your life,
    Maybe you are YEP's chief journalist..... hold on, you could never be that shit...... could you?

  24. I heard Warnock is having one more year, down at Upton park, joint management with the other big gob, planning is in place to extend the dug out to fit them in, or a back up plan to empty the dug out of unsold porno mags..... or are they behind the goal, filling 30% of your stadium.
