    Fuller summed it up on the first page I think- it's certainly possible to be a fascist but not a racist but it's also very unlikely. FWIW nothing I ever studied about Mussolini was anything other than extremely critical.

    I'm not exactly a Di Canio fan but in interviews he's always willing to defend his beliefs and while very suspect they're not so offensive that we should be critical of clubs who don't ostracise him. It's just comical of Sunderland to say 'he's not a Fascist' though, he openly is.

    Well yeah, but when has anything that has come out Sunderland (club/people/town in general) being anything but ****?

    Di Canio has played for about 50 different clubs in the UK though.

    Fair enough to say that his political points aren't relevant. Comical to try and spin it like he's actually a decent misunderstood bloke, though.

    Was referring to the club statement, I'm pretty confident Di Canio isn't a Mackem

    It was more than an eye opener to attend an English football match in 2011 and hear the racist epithets flow from some members of the crowd. Quite often and quite brazenly.

    Mind you, you hear mutterings at times in crowds here too, but I was taken with how overt it was in the UK.

    Paolo seems a right **** though, doesn't he?

    Apparently the appointment was actually the result of a misunderstanding- Di Canio thought he was taking over the Sudetenland.

    Sunderland have been crying out for a right winger all season.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
