    Good piece this.

    http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/how-...-inter-milan/story-30150068-detail/story.html

    Which poster was it who said I didn't have a clue what I was talking about when summarising his career and suspected I had never actually seen him play? Interesting that this correspondent says pretty much exactly what I did, even as far as the Inter captaincy being a last throw of the dice to raise his confidence.

    "Look at me everyone look at me, did I mention that I said Leicester wouldn't do well this season? Please look at me"

    No, I like responding to people who mocked me at the time for saying something that is then proven right. If everyone agreed at the time then what would I gain from referring back to it?

    I dare say if he was under Conte he'd still be in Italy's team. If he can make Luiz a decent half he coulda mad Glen Humphries into a Division 1 stalwart!

    It might not even have been a case of confidence, sometimes players don't fit into teams well. Their loss is our gain, though.

    I'm pretty sure I said he was brilliant at Bari alongside Bonucci and then he was perpetually woeful in the worst Inter side of a generation, making mistake after mistake, but they showed so much faith in him that they continued to play him. The argument against me was how can he be so ****e when he played so many games and was even made captain.

    And then someone even shared an article about Conte keeping faith in him as if that proved something, despite the fact that it was Conte who dropped him from his Euro 16 squad. Said poster then backed away saying "I didn't write it" but the dumb ****ing **** shared the article, so he was guilty by association.

    Oh so you're judging him on 2 games, 1 of which he played very well in, the other I thought he was bang average in.

    This Ranocchia lad could keep a clean sheet for the rest of the season but one small mistake and you can bet your life BCC will be in there with the told you so's.

    He already has made a mistake that could've easily led to a goal.

    But now you mention it, shall we go back and discuss your responses to my pre season predictions for Lester? And then again your responses once the UCL group stage was out of the way?

    He's been fine for us ffs. You made out he was barely a footballer and he looks every inch a premier league centre back. Pipe down.
