Downing on his way out
 
 
According to the Sun Downing will be leaving in the Jan window can't understand how a player with his pedigree has been such a flop here ?

His style was restrained by a tight straitjackett?

Not sure about pedigree. Wallsall aside, he plays about 20 games for a club before he is on his way elsewhere.

How can a player who has pedigree not hold down a contract for more than around six months at a time?

6 Pompey appearances and you would have to say he has been found out.

If Donny want him back, just terminate his contract and let him go.

Played 34 times for MK Dons before going to Blackburn but agree and would say he hasn't been very consistent something the transfer team should have been aware of before signing him?

He was a success at Walsall, a success at mk Dons, successful enough on loan at Blackburn to earn a contract and definitely a success on loan at Doncaster. We are the first place he has failed...a victim of Burgess' success this season or perhaps more a victim of the partnership with Burgess not working out.

Downing was signed on the basis as a replacement for Matt Clarke this misjudgement has probably been one of the main reasons for our poor display this season.

Didn't get much time to bed in, Raggett has been given much more leeway (twice as many matches) and he's hardly set the world on fire. There must be more to it.

Friend of mine wonders if he's maybe not settled in down south? Bit of a cliche but it does happen depending on family situation etc.

Kenny did hint at something like that (in general) when talking about ins & outs a little while back.

Matt Clarke was a left sided centre-back. Downing was signed by the Manager as his replacement even though he can't kick with his left foot.Enough said I think.

Point of order, Jackett and his team were clear that the replacment for Clarke was Raggett, not Downing.

Jackett said: ‘Raggett is right-footed, but has always played left-sided in his career.

‘The left-sided player in a back four is generally where he has played. So we’re looking at that for him.

‘Looking at our three senior central defenders, maybe Raggett is slightly different in terms of his first header, and is a little bit bigger.


‘Although Burgess and Downing are big enough, maybe Raggett is the one used to playing on the left side the most.

Downing is just another failed attempt by KJ to rid himself of Cook's players and purge Burgess.

He and Evans continue to raise their levels and embarrass his transfer dealings window in, window out.
