    Jose Mourinho is such a tactical master I get the feeling I could waltz into Cobham and he'd turn ME into a 20 goal a season striker.

    I think Torres will have fond memories of all the clubs he played for. I don't pretend to think that he doesn't have good memories of his time at Atletico and Liverpool, despite the fact he never won anything there. He certainly made his mark at both clubs, and fair play to him.
     
    It's what he does at THIS club for us now, that matters though. Once his career is over he will be able to look back at the good times with all three clubs, I suppose, and be thankful he finally managed to fulfill his trophy dream with us.

    Yes, I find this thread interesting to look through just to see how quickly people's opinions have changed since he started actually remembering he's a striker. There are people who have always been behind him and hoped he'd eventually get back to his best, even though they have been aware how poor he's been in the past, and there are people who have slated him at every opportunity and called him for everything, who are now kissing his backside cos he's playing like the old Torres. Should he go back to playing mediocre, however, I'd be very interested to see how this thread takes another turn.
     
    So I say, keep it. For the entertainment value.

    I was once again very impressed with him today. He got a deserved start and Jose was right to keep him on. He should have doubled our lead with that stunning smash against the bar so it was only right he got that goal at the end. It was gifted to him by Hart but who cares, a goal is a goal. Hopefully he can build on from here. Still not quite the Liverpool Torres but slowly but surely we are seeing glimpses. Well done to him today.

    Thanks for saying so. I don't support Liverpool or Everton which does get a fair few raised eyebrows around the city but my footballing preference, and anybody's footballing preference, has nothing to do with the place itself. Liverpool is actually a beautifully historic city with a great heritage.

    I believe behaviour that doesn't have a place in the game (including clawing at an opposition player's face) deserves suitable punishment, yes. It doesn't matter to me if the player plays for my club. It can't be allowed.
     
    Probably is going a bit far to say violent conduct but given players have been sent off for less I'd say Torres is one very lucky man indeed. Apart from the unfortunate knee injury that rules him out, that is.
     
    On that note, we just have to hope Eto'o is up to the job, since Ba seems completely out of favour and Everton have our best goalscorer.

    I actually think he has a point. Yes, Torres not getting the ban was good news for us, in theory, however I don't believe Torres should have completely got off with it. Let's get it right, had it been the other way around and Vertonghen had done that to Torres, and got off with it, we'd be fuming, wouldn't we?
     
    The FA are saying they can't do anything, but the video footage is there of Torres clawing Vertonghen's face with clear malice, so you can't really blame Spurs for feeling aggrieved. I can't stand them, but you have to look at it from their view.
     
    The FA are now basically saying that it's okay for players to take chunks out of each other's faces. Cos it's not like they can take action against that behaviour at any point now without looking like utter c**ts.

    I would have thought most fans had got onto how it works with Torres now. In Europe and the domestic cups he turns into Messi. In the league it just GETS messy.

    Like that time he played every second of every game for half the season and scored about two goals in the league? Then when we finally got cover for him, he STILL started most games.

    I'm starting to think Torres has a shamrock hidden up his ass.
     
    He's managed to see off nearly every striker we've had at the club since he signed.
     
    Can't believe we've loaned out Lukaku. We now have Torres, Ba and Eto'o to be going for the league with. Brilliant.

    I'm not bothered about workrate. It's nice to put in a shift but at the end of the day I'd rather have a striker that play s**t all game and then scores a winning goal than a striker who works his a**e off all game but doesn't find the net and we draw or lose.

    I'd have to disagree with that very much. Torres was starting almost every game for us even when we had Ba at our disposal. The Liverpool game was sandwiched between Fulham and Benfica, and you would have expected Rafa to rotate, but Torres started all three of those games, and played the full 90 in all of them. Also, the FA cup semi against City he came on with about half an hour to go. Whenever he started, he got the whole game more or less and Ba got about five minutes at the end. When Ba started he got hauled off after about an hour and Torres came on for the rest. I'd say Torres definitely got the lions' share of starts last season.

    I imagine one of the key things Roman and Jose discussed before he signed was that Jose would have the main say in the squad.

    I'd say he's found his form. He's done exactly what would be expected of a striker all season now. He'll never be the player he was with Liverpool, but he's far from s**t. He WAS for the first two years here, but i have no problem with him now. I don't think he should lead the line next season though.

    Oh i'm a huge fan of the guy. I was really happy we were signing him but given my family are mostly Liverpool fans u can see the situation i'm in given he looks nothing like the player he was with them.
    Also, i find it irritating that he assumes we're all d**kheads. When he is asked about staying on with us he always says 'well i have three years left on my contract' when i really wish he would just say that he wants to stay cos he wants more big trophies. It's clearly nothing to DO with having a contract and everything to do with whether things are going his way. He wasn't talking about his contract when he was whinging after the CL win and he wasn't talking about it when he walked out on Liverpool for us when he had three years left there.
    Simply put, i am a big fan of his, but he can be quite devious and dishonest.

    I have noticed though that when Ba starts he mostly gets subbed by Torres with about half an hour left, but when Torres starts he tends to just get the whole game. Torres rarely comes off anymore if he starts. He's definitely had more playing time than Ba since January, even if u exclude the Europa League.

    Correct. My take on it is this ..
     
    The FSW wanted to be heralded as the only man who could get Torres to score against the dippers. I mean, imagine the acclaim he would have received off a fawning press. It's the only conclusion I can draw. That's why he not only started him but inexplicably kept him on the whole game and kept an in-form Ba on the bench. Ba had just scored 2 great goals against the best 2 teams in the country (as opposed to the likes of Steau Bucharest). I'm convinced this was a classic example of the FSW putting his own agenda before the team's. Disgraceful.

    i really dont understand how Ba doesnt get a game. not long ago Benitez said torres was struggling because he had been the only striker for so long and was burned out... and yet he doesnt drop him when theres a fitter, better striker waiting in the wings?? clear bias towards torres, picking the team with his heart not his head.
