No ****ing way is he worth 15 million
He's a good deliverer of the ball, but I really don't think he has much else to offer
He doesn't get forward as well as Bentley, who is also overrated, but the better player IMO
And Downing has proved he doesn't do well on the big stage

Agreed he is an ordinary footballer decent, but not worth that kind of money, he is no better than Milner,Pennent imo.

Infact given the choose id probably take Milner over him, because Milner is mentally tough, will run his heart out, and he he scores more goals.

It's embarassing how much we overrate our footballers.

I agree and have always said the same. I really dont want to see him in a spurs shirt, but it looks like he will be. Hopefully he will prove me wrong!

to be fair on the lad he does play for middlesborough. hes a top notch player. not sure if hes worth 15 mill, but 10 id say. he'd prove to be a quality signing for any middle/decent premiership team

How come Maradona is wearing a Spurs shirt in your av? Is that what he had to do for his community service? Damn, punishment was harsh in those days!

Downing is a lefty and he's an England international. These two factors probably add five million each to his worth.

And isn't Pennant supposed to be in demand right now for some reason?

Re Maradona, those were the days at the Lane. Best 45 minutes seen 1st half against Feyenord in the UEFA cup (when it was a real trophy)

Rocky is a great no doubt, i just cant see him being greater than any of the others. In my list i try and take everything into account! he would be 11th or 12th. i havent thought that far!.
