If this Napoli game goes to pens and Torres takes one and scores, will that count?
the thought of torres taking a pen in a shootout actually hurt when i considered it earlier
Genuinely don't think he can ever score again lol.
THFC > LFC
I must keep this avatar and sig untill further notice for losing a bet enforced by Hij.
He'll score the winner against Man City
He looked good tonight but you can see his confidence is ruined.
I really think I was watching a different game. He played the ball simply (admittedly valuable in a cup tie), but showed no desire to score. Is this what it's become?
He showed more enthusiasm, tracked back, and generally looked a lot more hungry
I would be the first to criticise
Dunno Chelsea bought a feared striker. He didn't over complicate, he got it out of his feet as quickly as possible. Although Spanish, more in the direct English mould.
Now he spends as much time as possible trying to avoid the penalty box. Don't want to read too much into it either, but he didn't even seem bothered when the whistle went.
Oh he wasn't world beating, but he looked better than he has for ages. Normally he looks a cut of his former self, I felt last night (at times) he looked like he has something off his mind, didn't seem to have everything weighing him down as much, tried to get beyond the full back.
It says more about his Chelsea team mates that a couple of times they could have played him in to finish the match off and they didn't.
lol @ Chelsea fans.
When Torres is on the pitch and they lose "Torres is so shit". When Torres is on the pitch and they win "he didn't score but he actually played well". He's a striker, his job is to score goals and he has currently scored just 5 in 51. 2 Of which were against the mighty Genk.
Can confirm I am one of those people.
Yesterday is the only game I've seen him try 100% and do pretty much everything right (apart from that shot which wasn't easy tbf). He wasn't even playing as a centre forward either. When he plays as a centre forward he makes awful runs, makes shit passes and never tries to get on the end of crosses.
Hopefully he learns from yesterday and carries it on.
