Genoa played with a 5 defense line, Criscito as a LWB and Rafinha as a RWB one

but still a good game by Froggy ... only yesterday i realized he's better than Bonnucci .. very promising and very good move by loaning him to Genoa, hopefully he'll be amazing for us next season if he stays away from injuries.../

Great second half from Ranocchia.

Genoa play 3-4-3, Rafinha and Criscito drop back to defend, but aren't really part of the defensive line. Whatever, it's semantics though.

GDS voted him man of the match for genoa with a 7. Inler also got a 7 for udinese. Dainelli also got a 7 but for gds ranocchia was the better of the two hence the man of the match awarding for genoa.

i don't know where this "he's better than bonucci" remarks started from... right now its too hard to judge. I would say he has more potential and if all goes well, he will be a better player. But right now its difficult to tell.

Ranocchia played for each and every italian under age side, bonucci didn't. Bari's defence fell apart the moment ranocchia wasn't there. The likes of ricardo ferri has compared him to a young nesta. None of the greats have praised bonucci to this level at all.

If you watch the two play you will notice that ranocchia is much more composed and shows better awareness. Only bonucci has on him is that he is quicker.

Gazzetta ratings last year was also a lot better for The Frog comparing to Bonucci. (if anyone cares about this stuff)

When a 20-22 years boy begins his first 2 seasons in seria a as a starter (and i underline it SERIE A , the land of defenders) than you can't speak anymore about potential but reality. I watched genoa yesterday to see him and sculli and the similiarities between him and Nesta are very true in terms of class and personality.

I also saw the game yesterday some killer moves by the Frog and he will get a load of experience especially playing in a 3-5-2 formationwhich is really hard, Faraoni, Benedetti, Santon and Ranocchia and my mouth is wattering the future looks great.

I believe that Ranocchia will be more suited for Benitez way of playing with the defence higher up and i forgot to mention that the guy is huge.

Gave a small interview to gds. Says nesta is his inspiration because he is a great player and a nice guy. Seems to be keeping his feet on the ground. Says he is only concentrating on genoa for now when asked about inter.

Well i'm not sure about that. Actually he wasn't very fast and in a high defensive line pace is a crucial point...

Not even a contest. Ranocchia. I think it will be chiellini-ranocchia and then later on santacroce-ranocchia.

Bonucci for me is decent defender but he is not at the kind of level that ranocchia and santocroce are.

I think he got a bit lucky last season with both being injured when a spot in the national squad opened.
