Football in, politics out. Or is it? Paolo showed his communist side this week after suggestions were made that the players were being made to do everything together, writes Gareth Barker.

“The derby, is the derby, it still counts for three points, not six points. But it counts in terms of dignity, honour and pride for 2,000 games” said Paolo Di Canio this week.
