The biggest flop of 2011 and keep being average in 2012 already...

Waste of money and time by Liverpool.

Am I wrong?

Cant see why not he isnt really a impact player, and started every game for us.

He just doesn't fit in with the players Liverpool bought, I have said all along they bought some nice individual players but they dont compliment each other or fit together to well.

And they dont play Hendo in the role that he is affective at.

He is among the top chance creators at the club. Not his fault if no one in our attack can finish the chances.

I disagree with all the Liverpool fans on this one.

He is horrible.

Worst than Caroll and most certainly worst than Adam.


Caroll at lest has a ceiling this guy will be 28 in a couple of months

I never claimed he was the GOAT. But to call him a flop? Not his fault that no one has finished some of the great chances he has created. His shooting hasn't been great, but how many posts has he hit already?

Flop, lol.

I don't like him at all, either. I would start Maxi over him pretty much every game.

If Liverpool had spent all that transfer money in overseas talent they'd have a team twice as good.

Downing 04fqh
#From Twitter.

He loves keeping it safe doesn't he?

I haven't been too impressed with Ashley Young too. Started off really well then became crap. He and Downing were huge players for Villa, just shows that sometimes it's hard to make the step up to a big club. You eventually get found out.

Which LFC fans said that? They play in completely different positions. And Meireles was always bad when played on the wings.

Downing is probably just one of those players not meant to play at the very top level. He's a solid player, but doesn't have that little extra quality that'd make him a top player on a consistent basis.

It's not entirely his own fault, mind you. As a traditional winger, he's going to be at this best whipping in crosses but if he hasn't got the targets, his crosses aren't going to be effective. Plus, he's not getting any opportunities to show his prowess at set-pieces, since Charlie Adam seems to be taking them all. I'd imagine Downing would have a few more assists if he was free-kick or corner duty. Conversely, Adam would've have that many.

Ashley Young I've discussed before. Has the skill-set and the pace, but not the consistency to be a top player.

Downing is the worst player at Liverpool imo. The annoying thing is we bought a very good player, not a world class one but a very decent proven premier league player. We paid a bit over the odds for him at 20m (I think 16m would have been fair)) and he has come and been absolutely shit.

Hopefully he can turn it round and not be so shit all the time.

Why are people suprised if Comolli's specialty buyng utter shite........

And before mention Suarez, he bought Bale at Tottenham aswell.....

But for every Bale there was a Alan Hutton and a Jamie O'Hara thrown in......

Shite Sporting Director tbh.

Marin is the German Giovinco imo.......

Talented, but iam almost certain he doesnt have the mentalities to succeed at the top level shown by how far hes fallen off the radar.....

Dont think he would have done any better tbh.
