Di Canio gone but what next?
I am delighted to see Di Canio depart so unceremoniously. I think the huge outcry made by many decent Sunderland anti-fascist fans will have counted in the decision to get rid of Di Canio - whose fascist beliefs were at the core of his managerial style - and I particularly salute those who did not go during the time he was there. I’d hope they now return and the club could help by offering them a chance to purchase their season tickets at the April 2013 price. I also believe this whole situation has demonstrated a real need for a Sunderland Supporters’ Trust to be established so that one man cannot run ‘our club’ without reference to the fans.
