    evissy got a reaction from BlueBosnian in Torres - The "Groundhog Day" Thread   
    Maybe this hits my 100th post mark on this thread..? Probably a few shy. But the message is the same...you can moan about him over and over again. After every match the same things. Not good enough and so on. Every single person in this forum knows it I mean everyone. We'd be better without him everyone agrees. Can we get rid of him? No. Everyone knows that as well.
    We didn't want to get rid of him this window(at least it seems that way) and none of the earlier season's we've had him. That leads me to think we are not even trying. Maybe because Roman. He's done okay and his face sells shirts and we gain fans. He was good enough to win us Europa League with his goals which was good from him I think.
    Our saviour would be to buy truly a great striker who by merit would start before Torres. Jose is trying to do that. He knows that is the key.
    Torres managed to play well enough to keep Ba behind the pecking order. I think it was on merit as well. Torres was bright end of the last season.
    At the moment situation is the same. Torres still being picked ahead of Ba and Lukaku. Luk is not very experienced and Ba is not showing anything special.

    We have 2 for every spot which is good. Jose said 22 so that is pretty much 11+11...
    I see your concern on the youth but our business is built on success. We need those trophies and Champions League football to make any sense financially.
    But if you look at our current squad to the one that won the CL we have a very young and exciting team here.

    People were talking about him having an ego but i haven't seen a single indication of ego on Haz. On top of that Luk and Kev in the interview by chelsea tv said Haz is joking all the time.
    He is working hard and has a skillset only maybe 5 or 10 players in the world have.
    Great player! Hope to see a full interview on him with him speaking English

    Not sensble arguing this but...Torres got us a penalty, won the freekick for Lampard and put him through once. Good from Torres. This is early game which is arguably harder against fresh players and fresh defense.
    Rooney came on had two assists late in the game which was already in the bag against tired and beaten swansea players. Also at least the other assist for ManU goal was a short pass to RvP who then dribbled past 3 players and shot a brilliant shot in thr top corner. Rooney did very little there for that goal to come...
    Again I'm not saying Torres is better than Rooney but I don't like how you just simply brush his contribution under the rug there. He was good. Both players were good in the two games.

    Funny that. If Lukaku had won the penalty and that freekick people would be raving for 5-star performance and how he made the difference. Torres does it and it is okay performance. He can't win, can he? But we've been through this also 25 times so...

    At the moment our most important attacking players Mata and Hazard are playing in positions they need to be in and we are not exactly strictly possession football team either. Depends on the opponent. If Torres can't score with our current setup he is not playing. Basically Jose is saying there are opponents that suit Torres and opponents that don't. To me that means he will be used sparingly if not sold.

    RFC you have a point there. We know what Torres can do but have no idea if Cavani is any better in the prem and behind our magical trio. Ba completely dried up after he came and he scored for fun a Newcastle. I do 't care who scores the goals as long as they come...

    Would be nice to have a Dutch player in the squad tbh. Always liked the Dutch. Apart from the youtube comps I know nothing about this boy.

    There are no signs Torres' physique has detoriated. He runs fast and is sharp. He just can't find the net even from clear cut chances. If he'd bury most of the chances he had in the league he'd be on 30 goals after the past season. Which would be acceptable.
    He also made a lot of bad runs and was not able to anticipate what our midfielders were going to do next. He is more traditional in terms of style.
    I honestly think Jose can help him in areas but can't regain the old form.

    Ba would be easier to ship out than Torres so if we need to clear off space for that X-striker and Lukaku I'd be okay with that.
    Moses going out I don't see happening and don't want to see happen tbh. He is very young and has lot of potential. Perfect squad player to have at the moment.

    From Skysports:

    Torres praised the Chelsea supporters for their patience this term, with him personally and with the team.

    "I have no complaints about the fans. Not at all," added Torres. "They have been with me from the first day, especially when I most needed from the first season

    That's fair enough Evissy. Personally I don't think anything written by fans on a football forum, on either side of the argument, will make the slightest bit of difference. And you are right, no-one has given even the slightest indication of interest in taking him off our hands. But last night does raise his stock slightly and we can only hope that perhaps some clubs would take a view, (like some of our own fans on here), that 20 goals is 20 goals and not look too deeply into who those goals were scored against and the circumstances in which they were scored. Unfortunately I don't think we will look to sell him though, even with Jose's arrival, as Torres is Roman's personal project and as such, remains an untouchable.

    I don't have patience for him either. He doesn't fit Chelsea Football Club for a number of reasons. But as long as he is here we need to support him because we need everything he has to offer and lot more.
    I also think Rafa is a big reason for people reacting even harder on anything Torres fails at. We need the w**ker out and I hope we find a team we can offload Torres to after this horrible season of football.

    Lot of people here in this forum were talking that his complicated personality would be a problem and he is a troublemaker. I didn't buy it. Look what an absolute professional he's been. No stories off the field, only positive stories from on field performances.
    He is not diving or exaggerate falling or anything in that category.
    We had no one close to his ability last season in terms of going past people or someone who has such a silky first touch. It is better than Mata's.

    It is sad to see Torres struggling with his confidence. He tries so hard. Moving from a bitter rival with his pricetag did it. I'm confident if he moved back to Spain to Atletico for example with little fuss he'd get 20-25 for them.
    I don't hate Torres and as long as he wears the blue I support him BUT he doesn't fit the surroundings and never will. Find him a way out, please Chelsea. If we want to win anything we need Ba and a guy with lot less baggage.
