Di Canio on Geordie shore
Scary night at Steve Harper's testimonial for Newcastle. Paolo Di Canio, fresh from lambasting his Sunderland players, took to the pitch to play pantomime villain. The game also saw appearances from former Hammers Lee Bowyer, Kieron Dyer and a silver-haired Robert Lee. Not sure if Dyer lasted the 90 minutes… though Di Canio did try to red card the ref and survived a late tackle from Joey Barton.
