Di Matteo Praises Villa – Has Good Words For Newcastle Too

September 26th, 2016 · 29 Comments

We’ve always thought Roberto Di Matteo was a very good manager from the time he was the young 39 year-old manager of West Brom, when we were both pushing for promotion in the 2009-2010 and both achieved the two automatic promotion spots with Newcastle finally coming out on top with 102 points.
