An Old Pals Act for Di Canio

So there we were, getting excited because Montano had been recalled from loan, coinciding with the return of Bentley to Tottenham. Surely Doctor Evil had spotted the boy's potential and decided he was the answer to all our problems? But a couple of days later, and Montano is shipped off down the M4 to Swindon!

What has the poor lad done to upset Allardyce? Nottingham is one thing; but Swindon? Dear God, did he come all the way from Colombia to end up in Swindon? Suddenly the back streets of downtown Bogota must have a strange appeal! Sure you run the risk of being shot by drugs warlords but anything has to be better than the town whose only claims to fame are a mini magic roundabout (Hemel's is much more impressive) and a railway station that was the first ever to host refreshment rooms.

So it seems that Montano can look forward to heady nights of a big booted Florence and her pet dog Dougal eating stale British Rail sarnies whilst Di Canio blows his top because his charges continue to make him look stupid.

Look at the time Christian. 7pm in Swindon? Time for bed!

LOL I came down from Leighton Buzzard on a daily basis for 3 years on the way to the office in Kings Langley. Are the Buddhist monks still there?

Leighton Buzzard / Kings Langley why in heavens name? that just sounds too depressing..... 50 miles driving a day just to earn a crust?

Don't know what route you'd take. Mine was 18 miles each way. Lovely drive too if you know the back double routes through Gaddesden Row.

I think it may be to do with he was only ever coming off the bench for notts county and they want him to get more game time then 20 minutes each game

Montano was apparently 'well up' for going to Swindon. I guess the lad just wants game time.

Hammersfan said...

Good on him. I heard that he was desperate to follow in the footsteps of a West Ham great - Joey Beauchamp!

There you go, you just can't help yourself - it's a sickness.

Di Canio the footballer was exceptional, and he will hopefully be able to pass on a lot of his vast experience and skills to Montano and improve his game.

I thought you weren't coming back AJ. 0758 the next day? You must have logged on as soon as you crawled from your sweaty pit.
