you come here with a certain attitude 'i told ya' , 'as i predicted' etc etc..thats why they attack you. for as many times you have 'predicted', there are at least 2x you 'predicted' for fossatis of this world ....would it be nice all the forum come here and bash you about that constantly ?i dont know...its your issue but take that into consideration.

anyways.not gonna argue with you about that.i just want to say that we are still before 8th day.lets wait what our new jersey sponsor would be and then lets judge it.but now we are all in the dark about this issue

Me discussing youth players was simply me reporting what Management, journalists and other sites were saying at the time. In other words I was simply reporting the news. I did this at a time where we had a pathetic first team squad which hadn't been invested in for years. The problem with youth talents is they're hot one minute and flops the next. But you can never rule them out completely. Guys like Aubameyang and Darmian have come back to bite us in the ass whilst Petagna/Cristante/Verdi are getting NT call ups.

When I first mentioned Fossati he'd just won young Serie B player of the year and was leading the league in stats. At that particular time he would've been far more useful than the likes of Traore, Constant etc. However, now we've significantly upgraded the team and given he's regressed he's no longer useful. He's still playing Serie A games for Verona though so he's not a total dud.

What I find more amusing is people like you hyping up Niang as the second coming. I said from day one he was trash and looks like I was right. In 5 seasons here he only regressed and still ended up at a midtable club like Cristate/Petagna/Fossati/Verdi I'm sure if any of those guys had been given the same opportunities as him here they would've become rotational players.
