Conflicting views on the fella. For 6 Million we have been tucked up in my opinion, some say it’s 1.5Million but we now have no money and we had around 5Million before this deal was struck so you cant tell me the deal was only 1.5
Also I cant see any benefit in Downing coming because all we are going to do is play one up front and we have effectively paid millions for a player to ping balls into the penalty box. The club is relying too heavily on Carroll, Downing isn’t a goal scorer and if we had bought a right sided player that can score then OK but he cant so it wont solve our scoring issues one little bit.
Anyway this is just my opinion. What do you think of Downing arriving?
