Dario: 0-0 Is Welcome

Dario said after today's game that he'd have liked to nicked the 3 points, but 0-0 is welcome.

In what was yet another sketchy performance from Crewe you'd have thought Dario would have been more than pleased with a point, but the Technical Director was still ruing a last second missed chance from Nicky Maynard that would have snatched the three points.

Dario told Radio Stoke: 'Perhaps a welcome 0-0 in many ways. Neil [Baker] said half way through the first half he would settle for a 0-0, I said I wouldn't.

'Nicky [Maynard] had a shot right at the end, and if you want anyone to have a shot at that time it's Nicky, and that was really why I was pleased he was still out there. If he had scored then maybe we would have said that was that little bit of luck you need, I'm not going to argue against 0-0, it was a hard fought game.'

Dario also defended the decision to take Elliott Bennett off on the hour mark. The young loanee had arguably been our best player throughout the game, and the decision to replace him with Rix saw chants of 'You don't know what you're doing'.

Dario, though, says Bennett was tiring: 'Elliott and Simon [Church] looked like they were tiring. It's our job to explain why we took him off and it wasn't because we weren't happy with his performance at all.'

is he the manager then, i thought he wasn't anymore, confused as you write about him a lot ?
VanMan
Dario handles the media whilst Steve Holland gets on with the team. Should hear more from Steve Holland next season.
Dink.
ok, right cheers, bit odd that holland makes the substitutions etc and dario explains them, even though he hasn't made them. Or maybe he has ? Would not want to Holland, but s'pose after Gradi been the man for so long, its right to have a long slow transition.
VanMan
They say that they all have a say with Holland having the final word, but to what extent Dario's say is is still debatable.
