'Fancy Dan' footballers quote

Recommended Posts

Players pushing referees over and walking out on the club or hard working honest footballers that had actual success at the club like Danny Wilson?

J.R. Hartley would have been proud to have written that.

Controversial, but I have some sympathy with your take on this.  Never was a big fan of Di Canio, although no denying how skilful he was.  For me, he was the sort of player who should have been a squad player at a top team, to be used where something different was required to break down opposition.  Not the right player for Wednesday at that time, played too much for himself in my view, and only when he fancied it.  We’ve had plenty better - of the two I always preferred Carbone.

Danny Wilson at that time was the wrong manager, the season before Dave Richards had got his own back on big Ron and sack him. That one decision is very much why we lost our place in the Premier League.

 

Had Big Ron stayed as manager the whole team respected him, he would have handled the Di Canio incident differently and probably instead of West Ham have Di Canio's best years we would have had instead. 

 

It is funny how you could change one thing and the whole history of our club could have been different, if we had not lost our place at the top table that season and maybe not for a few years, we could have stayed up or when we had come down we would have got the parachute payments to do straight back up.

He was sold mate 

 

After the club abandoned him during his time after the push

 

Dave Richards and others at the club totally abandoned him.

 

What loyalty could he have shown other than attending his own meeting (without any real representation from Wednesday), apologising, accepting his outcome was a fair one, and getting ready to crack on.

 

Dave Richards sold him to West Ham, at a massive loss, then quit the club soon after for a plush job at the F.A

 

Tell me what you would have preferred Di Canio to do during that time to demonstrate ‘loyalty’ to the club after being totally sold down the river by the man who cleared off to the FA to feather his own nest

 

What could Di Canio have done differently?

 

 

100% this - sold down the river by the club so Richards could get his next gig. Look at what Cantona get from Man Utd for a much worse offence he got loyalty and love from his Manager

I just wish we didn't have to lose this bloke to get him in the first place can you image a team with Di Canio Carbone, and regi Blinker on the wing.

In all fairness I think Man Utd are going through something similar with Pogba presently. Can’t get in their side because of his ego now and Solskjaer prefers more ‘team’ players. We could have maybe carried one of Carbone or Di Canio in the team but often carrying both defensively couldn’t have been fun for the rest of the team.
