Interesting to read both Shaka and David James chipping in their five pennyworth in the Il Duce Di Canio debate.
According to Shaka, Di Canio is not a racist - not that anybody has ever suggested he is - but he does question the Italian's ability to manage in the Prem and suggests he walks a narrow line between "genius and insanity".
David James goes further, saying that he always regarded Di Canio as a "dictator" and says that his straight arm salute to the Lazio fans simply confirmed what he had always suspected, that Di Canio was an unpleasant individual.
Meanwhile 'Arry has asked where all this fascist stuff has suddenly come from, claiming nobody mentioned it when Il Duce was in charge at Swindon. He really should check out this blog more often!
One last thought, will Di Canio wear a black arm band at Newcastle out of respect for Thatcher?
