SWINDON TOWN: We can get even better - Di Canio

First published in Headlines by

PAOLO Di Canio has fired out a warning to the rest of League Two that the best is still to come from Swindon after the Robins recorded their 10th successive league victory last night.

Ronan Murray 53rd-minute opener and Paul Benson's 100th career goal wrapped up a 2-0 win over a Burton side who have failed to record a win this year.

Town are now four points ahead of Cheltenham and eight clear of fourth-place Southend, and are looking firmly on course for an immediate return to League One.

And Di Canio has spelled out just how confident he is that Town can keep on top of the standings by stating that they are capable of playing even better than they already are.

"My players were fantastic but I believe they can still improve," said the Italian.

"They were surprised in the dressing room when I said this but you could see that the game could have finished four or 5-0. I want my players to attack to the end, finish the game and score even more.

"I know this sounds like I criticise, but this group is a fantastic group. They have desire and the fact that we are at the top means that I have talent here.

"I am very happy because I make them better players while they make me a better manager, so it is a good mutual exchange."

10 straight wins is a huge achievement but as per the article there is no reason why we can't go on winning until at least the end of March.
..
Saturday is a biggie and all the new players seem to be very clear as to what it means to us so I just hope we don't go over the top too soon.
..
After Dagenham we've got 3 big home games v Cheltenham, Torquay and Bristol R. with Crewe away in the middle - win those 6 and PDC will go down in STFC history and well on the way to earning 'Legend' status.

SAPF when you set your question re our unbeaten run I think I went 16 or 17. I obviously thought the question was how many would we win in a row, not including draws! Can I revise my answer to 47?! How will you settle the season if this bonus question runs into next season?!

Just checking the referees decision!

Paolo last night "I spent 744 pounds yesterday on tickets for my friends from Italy for the final. They can now go to the Cathedral of football, Wembley". Still can't get over my mate not naming his son after him!! He is just unreal.

Back to back promotions coming. (plus another please). Watching the birth of a managerial legend.

Great display last night - 5-0 would have been the right result.

I was clearing out old text messages on my phone this morning and I found the following which I sent to BBC Swindon after the Poxford game in August... feels like a long time ago;



Oh dear, walking out of the ground does not feel good. However, some Town fans need to check the meaning of the word 'support' - In Di Canio we trust. Some basic errors from set pieces, but some positives too.
Ferry was excellent, Gabilondo looked good, so did Clarke.
Let the team gel! Take the armband from Risser and put Smith on the bench - he's no leader.

Lets all look forward to March when we go to the Pox at the top of the league for some sweet revenge.



Ok. So wrong about Clarke and Gabby hasnt set the world on fire now that Rooney is god... however, I'm quietly pleased with my predictions otherwise (smug).

The winning lottery numbers for tonights draw will be 12, 14, 22, 41, 42, 49 - bonus ball 5.

Who'd have thought we'd go on our ten match winning streak when the mighty Aden Flint only played in the first game of that run? So many don't often give Devera credit, are we better with his distribution than Adens undoubted defending ability?

Will Devera and Flint learn from Alan Mc and become our long term centre half combination?

Thoughts ladies and gentleman?

On a managerial legend, when do you become one? One swallow doesn't make a summer, but say we win the league, the JPT and break the wins in a row record? On his way but still not there?

You may win the battle (never know what way a derby's going to go) but you won't win the war - Swindon aren't certainties to win the league by any means, but are definitely in with more than a fair shout at this point. Let's just wait till the end of the season. Those that laugh last will laugh longest (right through the summer, looking forward to playing in league 1).

It probably also takes another team to have a bad day, but I honestly believe that they have the ability to completely destroy someone if they're at the top of their game.

He only has 14 clean sheets in 27 matches

Only conceeded 14 in those 13 other games - so only more than 1 once away to Championship Leicester!

Now I wouldn't say he is the best outside the Prmeirship yet - but he certainly is the best in this division by a country mile and then some!

Maybe he should pop down the the CG to have a look at Sir Wes! . He only has 14 clean sheets in 27 matches . Only conceeded 14 in those 13 other games - so only more than 1 once away to Championship Leicester! . Now I wouldn't say he is the best outside the Prmeirship yet - but he certainly is the best in this division by a country mile and then some! London Red

slightly off topic and going a bit statto (LR should like it lol!). A lot is made of need for 20 goal a season striker but truth is we haven't had a settled strikeforce all year BUT those that have played have scored 38 between them, now if that was just 2 playing all the time they'd have nealry 20 each already with big chunk of season to come so our strikers are scoring its just different ones all the time, think about it, 10 for Connell, 8 for Kerrouche, 7 for Benson, 5 for Jervis etc. Just a thought

Has Flint and Mc conceded less than Mc Dev or is that just a guess?

The thing with Paolo that he is bringing to our team is that he picks different strikers for different teams depending on individuals and opposing teams weaknesses. This is buzz light years ahead of just picking your two strike force every game.

Hopefully the penny will be dropping for people just how good our manager is and just how fast he learns from mistakes.

That Billy Bodin he's only going to get better as he pops two in for Wales under 21s, just imagine after another Paolo pre season schedule!

I can't see anything other than us hammering them this weekend. Superb.

Back to back promotions coming. (plus another please). Watching the birth of a managerial legend.

Where did you hear about leven being out for the season? Considering he is probably their only player that would get in the Swindon squad this would certainly be a big blow for Oxford.

As wonderful as the STFC season is, and as grateful as I am to PDC for being at STFC - long may he remain - I would still love to see Swindon really utterly and completely stuff some team this season; you know, like 10-0. That really would be icing on the cake.

It probably also takes another team to have a bad day, but I honestly believe that they have the ability to completely destroy someone if they're at the top of their game.
That might be April 9th aginst Northampton....

Just checking the referees decision!

Paolo last night "I spent 744 pounds yesterday on tickets for my friends from Italy for the final. They can now go to the Cathedral of football, Wembley". Still can't get over my mate not naming his son after him!! He is just unreal.
