Norwich in 10m euro bid for Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia

Recommended Posts

From what the archant writers said in the City debate recently, about Ranocchia not even being on Citys list of targets, to how Parma explains things, to how Italian media outlets use our clubs name to link so many Italian footballers to us, it seems clear that the vast majority of Italian reports  using our clubs name are just blown up in a huge way, maybe a simple request or asking for a piece of info is exagerrated  so as to appear City really do want this or that guy. In essence we are being used, often for inhouse Italian domestic reasons. All the more reason for City to avoid Italy  inside and outside of transfer windows imo.

Little ol'' Norwich being used by agents, media, and players to boost their wages at their present club, or to engineer a move by kicking up a bit of interest and fuss.

Happens again and again.

Regardin Ranocchia, I think we could do better with a quicker defender than him. Pinto is a quick defender, and I would be surprised if AN wants to buy a CB known for lacking pace, espescially when knowing AN prefers, by heart, to play a high press passing game with a high backline.

This is all a bit of a puzzle, on the Naismith thread it was[quote user="grefstad"]However much you try to convince yourself about

the excellence of Norwich as a city, or area, the fact is that it is

seen as a backwater. Which is also probably is, compared to other parts

of England.

"Nice place to live" counts for nothing for a flashy young baller who

wants to live life to the full, drive fancy cars and shag golddiggers. A

big back yard with a fecking apple three is not what these guys want.

They want city life, and a fat paycheck. In Norwich they get little of

both.[/quote]on this one we''re being used as leverage?

Do you think that all footballers are "ballers" Grefstad? I would suggest that''s probably a massive generalisation.

Maybe after alls said and done,  despite him being an Inter guy, despite him playing for Italy, despite Klopp  maybe getting him in as a panic measure  for so many injured Pool Defenders, despite all that, maybe  those Inter fans and lots of other Italian fans verdict on Rano do really apply...that hes crap.Until the day we find another CB, likely in either Uzbekistan or Alloa Athletic, we still have Ryan B,  and a  steadier CB than him right now would be hard to find.

That''s fair enough, can''t compete with the big boys and if Klopp wanted him then it''s good that we tried for a player in high regard.

We move on

Bumped this because it was a long thread from last year''s transfer window. And because Ranocchia has gone to Hull on loan today. Be interesting to see if he''s any good for them.

I never knew Hull was that exciting!
