I said two years ago that Torres was physically not the same player and I've yet to see people point that out. He used to run away from people like he was at another pace entirely, he'd made defenders look like they were running in quicksand. I don't know if it's injuries or what but now he's just nothing, no explosiveness, no real burst of pace. Nothing. The same thing has happened Rooney, but unlike Rooney, Torres doesn't have the ability to reinvent himself. His entire game revolved around pace.
