With two games remaining the Black Cats have yet to secure their Premier League status, but that has not stopped speculation.

The club have also parted company with chief scout Bryan 'Pop' Robson ahead of installing someone to work with Di Canio.

Lazio defender Modibo Diakite, Maritimo stopper Valentin Roberge and Barcelona's Sergi Gomez are amongst the names to have been linked with the Wearside outfit in recent weeks.

But Di Canio insisted: "I haven't thought about transfers yet - absolutely nothing.

"Everything can change at the moment, you can feel safe and then - boom - you can be hit like a hammer.

"So we have to make sure that we are safe first - I can't think about transfers until then."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
