Paolo Di Canio: Future not up for discussion

Di Canio was the focus of attention after last week saying his position was untenable because of off-the-field issues at the County Ground.

However, he told reporters he did not want to talk about the speculation over his future as Robins boss after seeing James Collins secure victory.

The Italian said: "This was all about the players. They have been Champions League and this was not about Paolo Di Canio.

"I appreciate you have come a long way to watch but I do not want to talk about Paolo Di Canio."

Collins revealed Di Canio was pleased with his team's performance in extending their unbeaten run to 10 matches.

The match-winner said: "The manager has congratulated us on the way we played and we will travel back happy. The gaffer has told us he's pleased with the way we're doing things as a team and that's what we're concentrating on.

"The mood is great in the dressing room and we're a close unit and we're sticking by each other. We're all committed and we're not going to get distracted by some off-the-field issues.

"We only see what we read in the papers on off-the-field stuff and we're just concentrating on what we're doing on the pitch. The top two is in our sights and it's definitely in our grasp this season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
