Majority Happy With Downing + Wow Player Poll

Majority Happy With Downing + Wow Player Poll

Not sure what happened in our last poll related to the signing of Stewart Downing, looks like some saddo looked to ruin the results (do people really have lives that sad that they only think their opinion counts?) or we have had an invasion from another forum to vote the negative option!

Anyway, the poll before last nights silliness had Downing as:

Great signing 8%
Good signing 67%
Average signing 20%
Poor signing 5%

(I only know that as I've copied it ready to do an article yesterday but ran out of time! Today it had gone to over 60% poor... how very clever!)

Sorry about that folks, thanks to the numpty/ numpties, I've deleted the poll.

Meanwhile, in the Downing thread in our forum , there are 106 happy with the signing to just 16 unhappy.

Our latest poll asks if you expect Villa to make a 'wow' signing this summer (£15m or above type of player?)

Yea I did wonder what happened to the poll last night ha! Great to see the majority happy with Downing joining. I for one think he will prove to be a big player for us - and can improve his game here at Villa! Lets hope he can change the opinion of those 25% who voted him as an average/poor signing.

just defies belief to me that someone will think their opinion so important that they have to find the back door way of multi voting, how sad is that?!?!

Agree though, could be a really good signing for us, think the majority had it right with 'good' and hope in years to come that becomes 'great' !!!

I actually think any signing at the mo is a good signing because it actually makes you feel good when it actually happens...whether he turns out to be a good signing or not only time will tell...player settling etc....I will say to all the detractors tho..how many games have they actually watched (unbiased) Downing play? Boro fans think highly of him even tho he put a transfer request in last season??

He is a player who comes to the club Injured, he has to get fit and prove MON was right to spend 12 million quid on him. Why cant we just buy a player who has ***** all to prove and just joins goe's straight into the team without the gamble.
