The only word that comes to mind when today I checked Twitter out and saw that Downing is very likely to come to WHU! Price is said to be between 5-6Million which is far too much for a player which the club can’t wait to get rid of.
When we signed Chamakh the fans were celebrating and the warning signs were there, our link to Downing is similar. Check out Scouser forums and you will see celebrating fans, the warning signs are there West Ham.
One last thing. I hope Downing isn’t going to be our second striker because I’m hearing they are planning on sticking him up front if Carroll isn’t available. Suicide or what!!
Some fans are very pleased with this deal but I can’t see any good coming from this unless he was a loan or a freebie. These sort of deals only happen when a club is desperate, another season short of goals beckons I fear.
Sorry very pissed off at the moment. Especially when other mediocre clubs have done great business in the striker department. Mark my words if we don’t get this striker problem sorted we are going to struggle, the club is banking a whole season on Andy Carroll staying fit and being on top form.
What do they think one striker is going to score half of the season’s score ratio? So Carroll is going to bag 20-30 goals next season? This club is in bongo-bongo land…….
