Goal.com - Sep 29, 2009 - Gianluca Di Marzio Will Not Be Napoli's New Sporting Director - Report
- According to rumours circulating around Napoli, Di Marzio was expected to be announced as the new sporting director, but it is not true...
- Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis & director Pierpaolo Marino discuss the club's recent poor form
- The sudden resignation of Pierpaolo Marino as Napoli's sporting director, has caused in his now former club to go in search of an immediate replacement for him.
- With rumours circulating that Queens Park Rangers director Gianluca Di Marzio could be in line for the newly-opened vacancy, the man himself has quashed any suggestion to the veracity of these whispers.
- "I have never been contacted by [Napoli owner Aurelio] De Laurentiis," Di Marzio said to Novantesimo.it.
- "I am comfortable at Queens Park Rangers in England, and I don't believe that I will immerse myself in the chaotic happenings like those going on at Napoli at the moment."
- The QPR director believed that Marino may have made some errors - whether financial - in paying too much for certain individuals - or technical - for not buying a player to do a certain role.
- He added, "There may have been too many errors in the acquisition of players, either paying too much, or more importantly, not getting someone to play a role not already covered." -

From The Mirror - 28/09/09 From QPR to NVA
"For those of you who have felt aggrieved at having to miss a game due to a work conference, or wedding, here is a sobering letter from a 1969 QPR programme…

- “Dear Sir, I am an Englishman who emigrated to the USA in February 1968, by February 1969 I was in the US Army and now I am over in Vietnam fighting this war, but every week I get news clippings of the great QPR from a good friend of mine Bob Thorpe. If I ever get home to England the first Saturday I will be watching the only team – QPR.
- “Is there anybody reading this who would like to send me clippings or photographs of the great team?
- “Yours truly, the only QPR supporter in Vietnam – PFC Nils Guy 171447871 - CoD 1/35th Inf 4th Div.

- According to the letters editor Nils wrote two messages on the back of his envelope – ‘Give Peace a Chance’ and ‘QPR for the Cup!’

- Instead of watching Rodney Marsh and Tony Hazell at Loftus Road poor Nils was patrolling through the Vietnamese jungle waiting for the Viet Cong to ambush him.
- Think yourselves lucky. - Mirror
