  1. He was good last night. I'm ok with justified criticism but people here are way OTT as far as Torres goes and it's sad to see.

  2. in my opinion, he should have made that run to the back post. the defender (number 17) was clearly worried about him as he was constantly looking over his shoulder for torres... until torres dropped back into the ever decreasing 'space'. ask any defender and they will tell you they want the striker in front of them where they can see them. had torres run off the back of 17, he would have been far more concerned and torres would be more likely to escape his attentions and score. however, i do agree that it is only pre-season, and much as i dont think torres is good enough, i dont think we sho

  3. The reason strikers make runs is because it's difficult for defenders to intervene if there is someone breathing down their neck - when Torres moves back he removes the pressure off the central defenders. This is an act he does quite often waiting for the perfect pass into his feet instead of actually giving whoever is on the wing more options. The position he usually moves back into is a position which naturally a guy like Hazard; Lampard; Oscar; or Mata would run into but due to Torres falling back into that position it actually lessens the options which our wingers have. Fact is that the Mi

  4. There is an interesting interview of Juan Mata here on the forum, where Mata talks about Torres's instrumental role in convincing Mata to join us. Just for that, I am willing to accept that Torres, in the whole balance of things, has been a good addition to the club.

  6. nope. i'm sticking with my original thought. he should be about 5 yards further forward to the top left of the screen and attacking the space to give moses an option, instead what he does is drift BACKWARDS and blocks of the path of hazard, effectively breaking down the whole move, as usual skip to 50 seconds http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cntBfT1XIss

  7. Wow, cmon guys. You have to trust Jose to the end. The bitter end. And when he says "I have some magic to work on this player, we are going to make adjustments to make him better" we need to all stand up and listen. Look at the effect he has had in the past. Zlatan would kill for him. Drogba would run through walls for him. He takes the mercurial and the unmotivated and he replaces their eyes with laser beams like a Seal Team sniper FFS. Motivation will never be a problem, because he motivates like nobody else in the game. And all the negative press out there, all the sneering bullsh*t

  8. Nobody knows what Torres will turn up? Do me a favour. The same Torres that hasn't shown up for the last two and a half years. Some of you are so deluded it's unbelievable. His record in the Prem is atrocious and his performances have been even worse. Have you not been watching? Jose's been watching and you can bet, as soon as he knew the Chelsea job was his, he started watching every single game we played last season. Why do you think he's going for Rooney? Because he knows exactly which Torres will "turn up". Torres has been given star billing, he's been given loads of creative playe
