Spurs miss out on Boro star

According to several papers today, Tottenham have missed out on the signing of Middlesbrough midfielder Stewart Downing after failing to agree terms with Boro.

Downing has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane for some time now and many people predicted that he would join Juande Ramos' side before the end of the January transfer window.

Downing, 23, has 16 England caps to his name and although he hasn't shown great form of late he is widely regarded as one of England's best left wingers.

I personally felt Downing needed to leave the Riverside and have a fresh start somewhere else. I'm sure Ramos won't be too happy but he can still play Malbranque on the left of the Spurs midfield.



  1. vamos ramos said,

    as used a left sided player MNalbranque is as good if not better (as he is better all round - tackling, making runs, support play etc) than Downing.Steed is also much more versatile.

    So i am not disturbed if Stuart stays at Boro.
