my problem with torres, is simple. hes holding us back. hes been holding us back since the day we bought him
if not for torres, we would have aguero. imagine that universe. or cavani leading the squad. maybe even lukaku and sturridge would have gotten more chances
hes a parasite, pure and simple. unless hes hammering in suarez or aguero numbers hes holding the entire team back. life would be so much easier, so less angry, so less frustrating, if we just didnt have him
All that maybe true, but exactly whose fault is it? He was sucking at Liverpool for half a season and we still ran in and inflicted this cancer upon ourselves. No one forced us to pay £50m for him. Maybe it's justice for the way the club behaved.
If we didn't get Torres, I'm not sure if we would have got Aguero, simply because the summer before we showed no interest whatsoever even though he said a lot of positive things about us. He wasn't playing for a big team in Spain, so we probably turned up our noses like idiots.
Yeah, it's frustrating seeing how Torres has played for us, but don't blame him. He didn't join us and then completely bomb. It had been going on for a while. Blame the people who made the decision to bring him in.
