What a bloody joke this is ....20 F*$%&* million on steward downing aged 27 english and as average as a winger can come ! Firstly we overpaid for carroll but circumstances dictated that but this one is taking the piss. It does not fall in line with the owners model of young talent and is on the threshold of their age criteria. I'm not complaining that we are signing p[layers but like some one said early we seem to spending silly money just to get a target when clearly in this case they are way better options out there. Its not a question of not backing Kenny or the club but have a bit reasoning to question. It all boils down the to fact that he is english right ? What a waste i dont understand this signing
Way,way over the top mate. I just don't get this type of attitude at all, I mean for a start has £20m even been confirmed and if it has what the hell has it got to do with us? Nesv own the club and they can do pretty much what they want with any of the clubs resources at this moment...the transfer money might not even have come from the clubs coffers as such.
Another thing is, how do people actually know for certain their is better, cheaper options out there that would be willing to move to Liverpool and play for the club. Incase it wasn't apparent there's still many reasons why the world's best might not want to come here at precisely this moment in time. I 'm not even going to bother pointing them out, if you don't bloody know now you never will.
Right now all we can really do as supporters and this is blindingly obvious too is to remain positive about the clubs future and put as much of our trust and faith and support in to Nesv, Kenny, his staff and his team as we can, and I'll tell you this for f@ck all, if there's one person that deserves the time, patience, support and respect from us it's f@cking definitely Kenny Dalglish.
My take on Downing, completely disregarding any fee because that's for the clubs to decide is he's a very experienced player in the top league, he regularly plays for what is still adjudged to be one of the top international sides, his own career and status as a footballer has generally improved year on year, he's around about his peak age in footballing terms, undoubtedly the man has a decent football pedigree with his own qualities as a player to back that up and anyone that refutes that is either blind, hasn't watched premiership football for the last 10 years or so or just looking to be negative for the sake of it because we're not buying player a,b,c from club x,y,z abroad. And another personal opinion of Downing which can be taken or left is he fits the profile of the type of Liverpool player I want to see at the club and it seems Kenny thinks the same. And that my friends is enough for me.
