An evening with Paolo do canio

Recommended Posts

The memories served up by Di Canio are unrivalled.

 

We missed out on his peak.

 

Will refrain from the typical Wednesday narrative...oops.

 

White boots. Short shorts. Rounding keepers more times than was necessary before tapping one in. Brilliant!

Think the biggest reason he moved to West Ham was it was a London club.

I've got far better memories of Hirst, Sheridan and in particular, Waddle if I'm honest.

Me too, because then we had a team.

 

But Di Canio was effectively on his own for long periods.

 

Wim was good but couldn't be arsed.

He had Carbone alongside him to be fair.

I'd like to think he's doing this tour because he's fallen on hard times. Looking forward to hear that only a handful turn up and the ones that do,  give him a hard time.

Think those 3 players all had respect for the club.

Di Canio didn't really have any. More talent in his little finger then 95% of other players but only played for himself.

Image result for paulo di canio gif

 

Blatant dive from Alcock  

 

20 years later and the club still hasn't recovered from this moment.

We didn't have the right managers to maximise his talent.

 

Only BFR got him and Carbone playing properly but he was moved on all too quickly

sad but true 

we aren't at all innocent in the handling the ramifications of this fueled prob by ambitions of certain people 

yet this tw@ comes here for an appearance after slagging the club off - wouldn't cross the road to see him

He was a great player for Sheffield Wednesday.

You could hear the men on the north swooning every time he did a stepover.

 

Thats why people blindly forgive him now

He won relegation in 2003.

He hardly needs the dosh.

 

Di Canio's SkyItalia's main footy pundit, probably on only slightly less than Abdi.

 

Typically, he presented solo until a big gaffe last year so now has a baby sitter.

He was a great player for Paolo Di Canio wherever he’s played, a veritable legend in his own lunch box. Not for me I’m afraid, give me the likes of Waddle, Hirst, Sheridan, Nilsson, every time, I just have a soft spot for team players.

I think many people do see Carbone and Di Canio as legends for Wednesday. Certainly they were 2 of the most talented players I have seen in my time but both soured they time at Wednesday a bit.

Also I don't think either player probably cares if they are a Wednesday legend or not. Its over 20 years now since they played for us.

Carbone keeps sniffing around the club and claiming his love for the club .Like DiCanio thought kissing the badge was enough to delude most fans. Good as they were both sold us down the river at the first opportunity.

Not a sausage. Went to the smallest club of Londons premier league teams as it suited him to be the star. Left Sheffield as it wasnt big enough a city for his ego. Wanted the bright lights of London.

All internationals who represented their countries. Some reason while DiCanio didnt represent Italy was probably down to DiCanio himself.
