Middlesbrough Message Board
What the f**k is Downing wittering on about looking for contract talks with 2 and a half years left on his current contract. I guess he is trying to tout himself around other premiership clubs but lets face it he needs to put his money where his mouth is and start performing for the Boro before we shell anymore money out on him or any other mug comes and gets him.
Downing is totally over-rated. He is not worth £12 million and never will be. He's an average £2-£4million player.
No offers have been recieved for him. The reason for this is that no one wants him.
It is only his agent & Middlesbrough who try & talk up his value as they both have a vested interest.
He is a lightweight in the team & I would be glad to see the back of him.
