Biggest myth ever, he was always sulking and walking around the pitch without a care in the world.

Also his finest moment (at the Nou) only came about because he lost the ball and couldn't be assed to track back despite there being about 2 minutes left in the game and us needing all hands on deck.

Of course Ash won the ball back and booted it back up-field, and the rest is history, but still - he was never exactly industrious. The same can be said about Drogba for 90% of the time though to be fair, especially in his younger seasons.

When’s he coming back?

he is not coming back to Chelsea - he only came to Chelsea to experience winning - now he will stay in Spain & visit Liverpool - I doubt he would want to live there cause he would get his house robbed every time he would leave

I don’t think he’s welcome there anymore. Another club that can’t show any class when a player decides they want to move on to a bigger club. Players generally feel the love at Chelsea for the rest of their lives and beyond.

Enjoy your pipe and slippers. Sadly will probably never be surpassed as my biggest ever disappointment in a signing, chipped in with a few big moments, but never lived up to his EARLY form with the dippers.

He was in decline before we signed him.

Nice little interview with Fernando going against the Scouse gospel.

He added: 'It was maybe my fault for not being able to adapt quicker. I had really good moments but I was not consistent. And if you are not consistent at a big club like Chelsea and you are not performing every week then someone will come in and take your position.

Damn. I can remember the day we signed Torres very clearly, it was the most excited I’ve ever been about a signing and well, he turned out to be sh*t. I really think he was one of the greatest strikers to exist, we just never saw that version of Torres here.

Feel like everyone will like him much less after watching it, for the most part he's a whiner and doesn't take any personal responsibility.

I got to that point while he was here, i don't need a documentary to know that guy's a brat, it was clear in his body language and interviews (reading between the lines) from day dot. There was even one where he unbelievably used the infamous lack of service excuse himself!

He wasn't as good as made out in his prime either, his Spanish colleague David Villa was head and shoulders above him.

Cheers for that, watched it during the night. A couple of things I took from it, one of which, is that most managers in his later career, other than Rafa, lost a lot of faith in him. I didn’t see anything on it referring to Carlo at all though.

Maybe he respected Carlo enough not to 'name and shame' him, but pretty much blamed his whole career post Liverpool on either the club or manager. It was strange watching Simeone having agreed to take part in the doc, be diplomatic and then Torres being pretty scathing on him in the next scene.

All in all I think Torres was pretty honest for the most part, he just can't being himself to acknowledge that post injury he wasn't the same player anymore.
