I completely agree with you with regards to the Alonso fiasco in 2008. To this day it still really annoys and amazes me that instead of buying a class act like Xabi Alonso, who had publicaly stated that he wanted to join and play with Del Piero and Nedved, we instead bought the Danish disaster Christian Poulsen. We finished 2nd that season and I am convinced that if we have had Alonso, instead of the worst player I have ever seen in a Bianconeri shirt, we could have won the title. To make matters worst, 12 months later he was sold to Madrid for £30m when we had agreed a fee of £12m. Ranieri signed his own death warrant that day and I believe cost us our chance to win our 30th Scudetto.
