Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio has launched a scathing attack on those Swindon Town fans who question his decision making stating, those fans who question him better hope he stays at Swindon becuase it would be difficult to replace him.
Speaking to BBC Radio Swindon, Di Canio stated, 'There is some intelligence from the fans, It's obvious that 99% of the fans are intelligent; they follow us. They don't start to be snobby and maybe judge us after one game.
It is believed that Di Canio was fuming after a section of our fan base questioned his reasoning for not bringing Alan Connell into the match at Crewe.
Town went on to lose the match 2-0, only the second loss in 2012 yet some fans decided to have a go at Di Canio in the post match texts and on some message boards.
'They (the fans) can comment and say they prefer this player or that player, but they don't judge like they are a manager at the top level.
'Ninety-five per cent of fans are amazing because they love this club, but there are a small number of fans who criticise in a silly, pathetic way.'
Di Canio suggested the negativity was coming from fans who never wanted PDC as manager in the first place telling BBC again, 'There are always some silly fans, probably the same fans that didn't want Paolo di Canio, who after three defeats they said 'we told you that he is not a good manager'.
'Now they have waited for our first defeat. Maybe when we finish at the top they say we should finish with 130 points.
Di Canio went on to tell the fans who back the team 'don't follow the stupid'.'
Let's hope we don't have to read too much into this rant. Di Canio has said how much he loves Swindon Town and waves his scarf aloft after most games saluting the crowd, let's hope this isn't the start of a falling out between Town fans and Di Canio.
We doubt it though and we are 100% sure Town fans will be right behind Di Canio and Swindon Town as they take on second placed Torquay United at the County Ground tomorrow.
