Have you actually watched any games this season? Becaus eif you had you would know that Downing isnt complete trash! ffs give the guy some time to settle the fuck in. It took Lucas 2 years, yet we gave him time, it took Carroll 18 months+ yet you're willing to give him the time and Henderson has been as inconsistent as Downing yet you're willing to give him another season. So stop having double standards and give Downing a chance and another season and get behind him, don't just write him off!
Of all those players, Downing is the only one who we can’t described as “still young”. He’s a professional and has been playing in the Premier League for over 10 years! He’s a winger, an attacking player and yet he has not scored any goals or made any assists in the league this season. Sure, he needs time to adjust to Liverpool because they’re bigger than Aston Villa, and Middlesbrough, but he should still be able to perform against teams as big as those two - he scored against Liverpool for Villa last season even! He is trash. The most dour winger of the top half of the league. Let’s see how many times he passes the ball backwards again tonight, or slows down the play after we’ve gone on a break. Bellamy does more positive things in 20 minutes than Downing does in 90! And I’m sure Maxi is going to outplay Downing tonight.
COMOLLI HAS GONE!!!!!!
Great news, new the transfers are 100% down to Kenny which is great news. You can’t give Comolli all the blame for some of the overpriced players we brought in but atleast now Kenny signs the players he wants. There is no doubting Henderson is a good prospect but he was still over priced and same with Andy Carroll. Downing was worth no more than £10mil if you ask me but he can still be a decent squad player for us. Hopefully we will make some signings in the summer to improve the quality of the starting 11 because i think we have a decent size squad now
Finally getting a win and now Comolli leaving has left me in good spirits ready for the FA Cup semi’s on the weekend and i’m sure other fans feel the same way
Adam has also been poor but at least he was quite cheap
