Downing: Football's about results

West Ham winger Stewart Downing insists winning is all that matters in the Barclays Premier League and that pretty football is no guarantee against relegation.

We found it all a little bit strange, winning the game and getting booed off.

In this game it's all about results. It wasn't pretty but the big thing is we got the points because it moves us closer to safety.

In the situation we're in the most important thing was to get the win, especially against a team that was in and around us.

We just play effective football to get results. When I was at Liverpool we played nice football but we finished eighth.

There's no point playing good football and getting relegated. I did that with Middlesbrough.
