Ok, so many of you have a problem with the ‘Paolo’ reference from the article on April 30th that I’m removing it from the checklist to see if we can get close without this clue.

In the article TSF had referenced a manager once saying “You all need to be more streetwise like Paolo”. Upon researching the Paolo could only have been Di Canio as others with the same name, such as Wanchope, where actually spelt differently, with a ‘u’ as in ‘Paulo’. However, many of you believe tho reference was actualy a red herring and a name had been inserted to protect the player’s identity.

As a result, checklist point 19 now has a strike through and all those candidates ruled out soley on the basis of not having played with Di Canio are now back in the frame.
