The last time I wrote about Stewart Downing, I was the one who got taken to task by the readers, but then again, Downing hadn’t yet missed a penalty against Chelsea. Now that he has–check out the lead video–the Twitterverse is out in force, reminding Liverpool’s management team just how much support Downing really has. Which is to say, not much.

If you’re a member of Downing’s family and/or a Liverpool fan, the upcoming reaction probably won’t go over well, but if you’re someone who enjoys the failings of others, or at least reading about people react to these failures, you’ll be right at home:

Stewart Downing still trails Tim Howard in both goals and assists this season. 1 minute ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

In case you aren’t familiar, Tim Howard is the goalie for Team USA and Everton. The fact that he has more goals and assists than an in-the-field player is a little surprising, even more so when you consider just how much Liverpool paid for Downing (£20 million transfer fee). With that in mind, what does Downing have to do to win the fans over? Score a bunch of goals? Get out of Liverpool?

If Downing did actually start scoring for Liverpool, would the world, especially Twitter, be able to handle it?
