I think he had a very good coaching team alongside him. Not sure he can take full credit, but otherwise yes I agree.

He also spent an absolute fortune. Luke Williams would have won that league with that budget.





OK, maybe not. But still.

Maybe not (LW), but he (PDC) did benefit from a Bristol City/Bournemouth sized budget, a fair amount of which was pissed away on Lanzano type signings

Lanzano, Commazi, Boateng, Esajas, Risser, Atiku, Gabilondo, Tehoue, Magera, Montano, Murray, Abdulla, Navarro, Rooney, Bessone, Coke.....

The list of shit signed by PdC was long, admittedly a couple of those were loans but a fair few just had their contracts paid up by us and cost a small fortune.

Red brick dream
Windows scream
As the rusting north star shines above
And drops it's iron beams
Crashing down upon the rooves of swindon town

I heard the engine's dying breath
Castles and kings all starved to death
I dropped the coronation cup
Sshh, please don't wake them up from
Red brick dream

The problem with Di Canio is you had to have that budget to let him hit and miss to find that formula, otherwise he'd strop and walk, which he did.  For all the fun at the time, not worth it in my opinion as it would have broken the club with no guarantee at what point his line had been crossed.  The Wise and Sturrock numbers stand out for me - we were abysmal the season before, so it wasn't a foregone conclusion we'd turn it around in their time.  I didn't like Sturrock, but you can't argue with the numbers and either one of those two would probably get better results out of the current team.

That list should go straight to the Washbag Hall of Shame.  TBF Adam Rooney wasn't bad, still knocking them in for Aberdeen, unlike Him, who seems to have STFC striker style figures for the season of 1.
