Agreed. How many posts on here are actually about Flynn Downes?! And no I'm not going to count them.

My comments were made, NOT to elevate me on to any pantheon of the greats but in support of Dazza who had been subjected to criticism as I have been in the past and continue to receive so I know all about it!
For the record I never specifically stated I was "ITK", so such an accusation is incorrect.

I am a humble chap not filled with any self-importance at all and often my comments are mis-construed.

So what EXACTLY does the highlighted sentence from your post below refer to???!

I was never "Sarcastic" or critical towards Dazza because I knew his information was correct.
I have suffered similar ordure in the past, especially when proposed deals were not concluded for a plethora of reasons.

It doesnít get much clearer than that!!!

Leave it off please. There are many more annoying people on Holsmesdale than Willo.

Peter, with the greatest of respect, Willo brings it upon himself and those criticising him for his style and content are just as entitled to their opinion and to post as anyone else.

I remember him, his brother Upson was handy as well.

 


We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

OK Phil, you have your opinion, I have mine.

This is all somewhat befuddling.
All I do is to be respectful to all and sundry and post in good faith, trying to be as constructive and informative as I can yet I am on the end of unrelenting invective.

I argue my case free of abhorrent personal insults and I certainly do NOT consider myself some omniscient sage with an ego sprouting as fast as Clematis Montana.
Those who truly know me would vouch for the fact that the 'Picture' painted of me on HOL is far from the actualite.

Anyhow, I have repudiated and upbraided some of the dastardly accusations and there is no need for me to add any more to what I have asserted on this thread.
Good night to one and all.

So once again, I'll try to get us back on track so that we can discuss the OP's topic, namely one Flynn Downes (and hopefully without the silly season banter concerning his siblings etc., which I confess was mildly amusing).

I know nothing about the lad myself but those who have posted on here who have see n him or who have connections with people who have seem to think he's a good prospect.

One poster has suggested the player's height may affect his ability to mix it in the PL. However, as another poster has noted, Downes was no stranger to yellow cards last season and Downes, himself, apparently recognises the need to improve in this area.

I suppose the question is how important a future piece in the club's jigsaw building project is he? We will no doubt find out by whether or not we increase our bid for him and how high we are prepared to go.

There is a bit of an obsession for some over the height of this boy, but does anyone know what his weight is for 5í 8í torso. What sort of pace he possesses .? That height is not that small anyway.
The game may have changed in some respects, but Billy Bremner was a midget until he tackled you, Nobby Styles took no prisoners, and Allen Ball helped drive a World Cup winning team, and remained one of the best midfield players of his time over a long career. I donít make a comparison to Downes , except on the size issue, does anyone know how tall Messi, is?

Just under 5ft 6ins.
David Silva is about an inch taller, the same height as Sergio Aguero.
