Few clubs have turned around their fortunes faster than Sunderland in the past week. Two huge wins - one in the Tyne-Wear derby, the latest against highflying Everton - have coaxed the Black Cats back from the brink.
Both those victories, of course, have been masterminded by their new field marshal, Paolo Di Canio. The Italian's appointment was a huge gamble for club chairman Ellis Short.
He sacked a media darling in Martin O'Neill and replaced him with a Mediterranean firebrand. He gave up on statesmanlike experience and rolled the dice on impassioned potential.
Ellis threw a double and instead of facing a stretch in the slammer, it turns out Sunderland were just visiting. The Black Cats are now [ Di Canio is certainly a polarising force.
He always has been. Swept to power amid a political storm over his apparent attachment to the former Italian dictator Mussolini , the year-old has since weathered his critics and let his players do the talking.
After guiding Sunderland to their first Tyneside triumph in 13 years - and their biggest win at Newcastle in 34 years - Di Canio chose to shun the procession on his Stadium of Light unveiling.
Instead, he emerged late from the tunnel and quietly exchanged formalities with Toffees boss, David Moyes. Hardly the manipulative fanfare cynics might've expected.
Even his Roman salute has been shelved in favour of a friendlier greeting in victory to all four corners of his new home ground. Now the real salutes are only coming from fans and press alike.
