    Whoever coined the phrase; "a week is a long time in football", they could have written it for Fernando Torres. Though I obviously think he should go, I don't for a moment, think he will. Not while Roman owns the club.
    That said, if we once again end up with him as our first choice, regular starting centre-forward next season, we will struggle up front everybit as much as we have done this year. It is that simple.

    Oh my god he scored a brace against one of the sh*ttest teams I've ever seen and people are now saying we should give him another season?
    Do. Me. A. Favour.
    He cannot do it when it matters and he has had 2 and a half years.
    He is a liability and he costs 175k a week.
    He'll want to stay but don't believe the hype of his own making.
    To play for Chelsea you need character and he has none of it.
    Seven Premiership goals this season folks.
    Seven, playing alongside some of the best creative talent in the world.
    He moaned and moaned and moaned, wanted star billing, wanted us to play to his strengths, and what happened, he was as sh*t as he's ever been.
    He wants us to persist with him because he won't give up?
    He won't give up his contract is what he's saying.
    We will be far better off as a club without him.
    God almighty some of you beggar belief.
    He's total sh*t and why anyone would want him to stay evades me.
    Yes he can score against sh*t teams because that's his level.
    Work it out folks ..
    It ain't difficult.
    Edit: I just realised one of those seven goals was a pen, so that's six from open play all season, and we're struggling for fourth.

    It's got to the point where Torres' performances hold some sort of morbid fascination for me.
    It's like watching a ghost.
    After all, a ghost doesn't possess a heart.
    I don't even think he was happy when Oscar scored.
    I hold this player in contempt and I want him out almost as badly as I want the FSW out.

    Was anyone unaware of the failings of Torres before this was posted?
    Torres is finished as a Top Premier League striker, but we all know that.
    The best we can all hope for is that when he plays he gives 100% and contributes, and then in some way leaves in the summer.

    Things get a whole lot worse, the guy we tracked all the way to the wire in the last transfer window nets on his QPR debut.
    Meanwhile Sturridge poaches another goal alongside the man who replaced the most expensive mistake in the history of the game to make it 3 in 3.
    What price Lukaku scoring later and Torres being picked ahead of Ba by his Spanish bum chum.

    Hearing more and more than he's heading out. Wants 'talks' even though Rafa has asked him to stay until the end of the season. Bad as it sounds, I hope he leaves in this window, better for all parties.

    It's a combination of his head, his injuries and his heart. I've backed him all the way and will continue to do so, I certainly won't boo him (or any other of our players for that matter) but even Stevie Wonder can see he needs to leave for our sake and his.

    I have absolutely no sympathy for Torres and I can't understand those who have a problem with the booing. He has got off very lightly over the last two years and clearly a sizeable section of the support now think enough is enough. You pay your money and you takes your choice. Those people booing are the paying punters, who sacrifice time and money to support their club. They are doing what they feel is right for Chelsea, and I happen to agree with them.
    Torres is a professional footballer, though you wouldn't know it. If you play as he has for as long as he has you can expect to get some stick. It goes with the territory. You take the accolades, you take the cash, you take the glory. There are a lot of benefits to being in the position he's in and he's had unwavering support since he joined. He's been given every chance. He can hardly complain.
    He wanted top billing, he made that clear. He didn't like the way we played, he made that clear. He moaned when we won in Munich. He showed dissent to Di Matteo on the rare occasions he was subbed, despite being a below-par performer. This boy needs humbling and I think the boos did the trick on Wednesday. I don't think he'll be moaning in the press anytime soon about how the club are letting him down and I don't think he'll be shaking his head when he gets subbed. Those days have gone. He will no longer be indulged. You're no longer the golden boy so stop acting like one. Get your head down and practice, because you are sh*t.
    If he had any humility he would have seen a head doctor long ago, because that's where the problem lies, in his head. He is scared to walk on a football field and has been since the day he joined, hence he hides. It is unforgivable. He takes home 175k a week. We should expect a return he should endeavour to provide a return. Go and see the head doctor and sort out your head. You owe it to Chelsea.
    Nothing has changed apart from the fan reaction. Torres has been sh*t since he joined and all the excuses have been found out. Suddenly the slow-coaches have all begun to realise. 
    He has continually said the truth will come out about his departure from Liverpool. The truth is Nando, we trebled your wages. That's the truth. You left the club get over it. Grow some f**king balls for f**k's sake stop trying to pander to the Liverpool masses. You can't leave them and expect them to love you. You have to be tough. You have to allow them to think what they want about you. You are our player now. We deserve more.
    Where's your f**king head?
    I've criticised him all along the line. I didn't like his attitude towards Di Matteo I hated his reaction in the penalty shoot-out in Munich I've hated his body language on the pitch and I've hated his performances. You need to be tough to play for Chelsea, you need to be very tough upstairs, in the head. He isn't and he's never addressed that. Ba arrives and talks about how Torres is the main man and how he has so much to learn from him. Can you imagine Torres saying the same thing about Ba? Can you imagine Torres having the humility to go up to Ba and ask for tips? The fans needed to make plain how the pecking order stands, and ultimately, I think it will do Torres some good. The facade that he is some kind of elite player is over. He needs to stop those fancy flicks when we're cruising. He needs to knuckle down and address his problems and try to get back to being competent.
    Stop pretending you're Juan Mata. You're not.
    To those that say the booing might dent his confidence, don't make me laugh. He is sh*t and nothing has worked for nearly two years. This might be the shot in the arm he needs. Maybe it will make him angry maybe it will motivate him. If he's got anything about him it will. It's up to him to fight. He's had it way too good for too long.
    When he walks into training now his status has been established. There is no more pretence and I think that's exactly what he needs. It's exactly what we all need. We need a Torres that has the humility to understand what a shocking performer he's been with us, and the problems all lie with him, nobody else.

    And the Torres fan boys are here. Nice to see the personal insults perhaps you should aim them at your idol.
    The man is a cancer and is the single biggest problem with the club aside from Romans itchy trigger finger which can be forgiven as Roman has put a lot into the club and genuinely wants it to succeed. Torres doesn't, he just doesn't care and is happy to collect his unbelievably high pay check while giving little back to the club or it's fans.
    I can't stand the man he's mentally weak and doesn't work hard enough to compensate, but I'm also angry we signed him. I didn't rate him much at Liverpool when he was scoring. The whole team was se up for him and he still didn't look that impressive, in his prime I wouldn't say he was worth more than 30 Million but a clearly finished Torres costing 50 Million? Madness.
    As soon as he is forced out we can get back on the right track, until then this joke of a players shadow will hang over the whole club including the manager who will be tasked with getting the best out of a player who isn't good enough for the championship.

    Torres has been with us 2 years, Ba 2 minutes.
    One has never played alongside these guys before and got 2 goals from open play away from home.
    The other has never done that, which begs the question ..
