Torres

Recommended Posts

He's in the discussion when it comes to who is the best Liverpool forward of recent times. One of those few players who just had that thing about them, the feeling that whenever they got the ball something magical was about to happen. That he would glide past his opponents in that unique way that he could. 

 

I echo what KMD7 said. He tainted his legacy slightly by leaving for Chelsea in the way he did. But, in hindsight, we did quite well out of the move. 

 

And, he also had a boss song. 

 

"we're gonna bounce in a minute..."

Loved him when he was here. I can get why he wanted to leave us. But Chelsea ! fuck him.

He can get in the same cunt boat as Suarez and Coutinho and get to fuck.

In those first 2 seasons he was fantastic. He arrived as a talented player with huge potential and within a year had become world class.

The season he left really was one of the bleakest periods I can remember as a Liverpool fan. Everything about the club just seemed fucked, and the future looked even worse. Hard to blame someone for jumping ship at that point.

I think all the players, and their agents, knew we were fucked with Hicks and Gillet around at that time and so it was no surprise some of them bailed.

I don’t know what was going on behind the scenes, but I felt Torres was sad at leaving us, we’d come so close to united under Benitez and the spine of that team was fantastic.

A couple of more signings and we had it in us to win the title.

Like everyone, I was gutted when he left for Chelsea but I never felt his heart was in it when he played for them like it was playing for us.

I hope he enjoys his retirement, he was fabulous for us for the first two seasons and that’s what I’d prefer to remember.

Great player between 2007-9. Shame we didn’t get to see him alongside Suarez. It’s much easier to shed the bitterness over his departure now that we have, for the first time in three decades, a team that could compete with the very best in the club’s history.

No bitterness at all from me towards Torres because Suarez acted far worse. Yeah, he went to Chelsea but we're not actually rivals with them, we got a disproportionate fee and the club was a joke when he left.

 

Not only that, I thought he was a really sympathetic guy. Not a huge character from what I remember but someone who you wanted to like.

 

Really good career. Could have been great with a bit more luck.

I always feel a little bit sad when I think about him. Right player wrong time. His telepathic link ups with Gerrard are the stuff of legend, incredible player, but never actually won anything with us. 

 

He deserved a better Liverpool, and we deserved a bit of class from the lad if he wanted to leave. 

 

I feel like we can look back favourably now that we have got our shit together again and are competing for the big trophies, something that seemed a million miles away when he walked out.

One of the rare times the club acted against the wishes of the fans and got it right. £50m was daylight robbery. Great transfer in and out.

He appeared on Chelsea TV saying he was glad he'd joined a big club. 

 

He's a cunt, end of. Anyone who thinks otherwise would, had they lived in 40s France, probably have turned their own parents into the Gestapo.

Remembered for his time at Liverpool, yet the only club he never won a trophy with. It's an interesting discussion to be had about what people,  both players and fans alike, get out of the game. 

 

Further to that, is he the greatest ever Liverpool player to not win a trophy at the club?

Agreed.

 

I always find it bizarre how over that period of about three or four years, some of our quality players that left are the worstest person EVER and others are still loved. Often because one player had a better PR manager than the other.

Nah, he’ll be remembered as a Atlético Madrid legend.

He's retired by the time we got our act together.   He said as much at the time, that he didn't have the years in him that it would take without serious investment and he's been proven correct there.

He played for his boyhood team. He left them to better himself, in doing so he made loads of money and won the Champions League. He returned to His boyhood team, represented them in two European finals,  winning the Europa League. No hard feelings from me. Good luck to him.

Doing well would have meant we signed a decent replacement. We signed Andy Carroll.

No problem with people leaving or wanting to better themselves, just them being a cunt.

 

There's ways of doing that without going to a hated rival and letting them parade you on telly while you stick the boot in. 

 

Seriously, people who countenance this stuff devalue the loyalty, effort and passion shown by all the countless reds players throughout the years who carried themselves with class and dignity. Horrendous individual and I couldn't give a toss about him.

I don’t regard Chelsea as a hated rival. They were an irrelevance when I was a kid and save for a few years in the mid to late 00s, they’re still pretty irrelevant to me.

The club had no choice.  They met his release clause.

No real feelings either way. Was everything I loved about football when he signed, was everything I hated about it when he left. We got a couple of great seasons out of him but he lost that explosiveness that set him aside from pretty much anything in Europe and we did brilliantly to sell him for as much as we did. Unfortunately we largely wasted the money.

    • Jurgen Klopp is completely at ease with his current contract situation, and believes it will all play out accordingly in good time.

      There had been some headlines emerge in the past few weeks that Klopp may take a sabbatical at the end of his current deal which runs out at the end of the 2021/2 season.

      However, speaking before the pre-season friendly encounter against former club Borussia Dortmund, the manager did not see the need to look too far into the future.  

      The Mirror reported Klopp as saying:

      “That is why a contract is important. We have enough time to make decisions in that department.

      " There is no need to do it now ,three years is really a bit early to be concerned.”

      Listening to Klopp, you hear a man who holds the club very close to his heart.

      " Everything is fine. The owners like what I do; I like what the owners are doing. I love the team, they are brilliant; Melwood is sensational.

      However he is not someone who will remain at a club just for the sake of it and risk outstaying his welcome.

      "I don’t want ever to be in a situation where people are annoyed that I am still here That’s the truth.

      "At the moment, it is 100 per cent and we will see how long that will be.

      “Whatever discussions came up - a few headlines that I saw, not a lot, that I will finish for sure in three years, that I will sign a contract and all that stuff. I have three years.

      "It is all good, all good. The age group of the boys is good; my age is good for what I have to do.

      "There is nothing to talk about. It’s strange that we talk about it three years before.”

      Speaking for a lot of Liverpool fans, lets hope it a a fair bit down the track that we start looking for a new manager.

      And when Jurgen does depart, he has a fair bit of silverware to his name as Liverpool manager.

    • Jordan Henderson has paid tribute to the determination of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in his quest to return to full fitness and be a key member of the squad once again.

      Speaking ahead of the Reds pre-season encounter with Borussia Dortmund on Friday, the captain spoke about how much of an asset the midfielder can be during this campaign.

      The Official site reported Henderson as saying:

      "I’m quite close with him and he's a fantastic person. 

      “Off the field, last season he was a massive part behind the scenes, even though he had a really bad injury and I'm sure he will have been going through some painful times.

      "He was always positive, always happy around the team, always there to support us when we needed him. 

      He was a massive part for us off the field and this season I hope he's a massive part on the field as well.

      "I hope he can just show everybody what he’s capable of, like he did before he got injured. He's looked so strong, so good in training.

      Henderson said continuity is essential for someone in Ox's position.

      "This pre-season is important for him, just to get back to playing games regularly and to get his match fitness back. I'm sure once he does that then he’ll be flying again.

      He's like a new signing for us, he's such a fantastic player, so powerful, and he gives us something different in this team.

      "He's a massive player for us to have back. Hopefully he can just stay injury-free for a while now."

      Henderson also took time in discussing the potential change of role for Adam Lallana from a creative outlet into a deep lying midfielder.  

      It has been something that has sparked a great deal of discussion  among the fanbase about whether he has the temperament and fitness required to fulfill the role, but Henderson has no doubt that the veteran can produce the goods.

      “Ads took to that role really well in training and in the games that I've seen over the pre-season.

      “He's a fantastic footballer, so he can play anywhere on the pitch really.
        “But I think he'll give us something different in that position definitely – the way that he receives the ball, he can get out of tight situations and he can open the play up for us and start the play off really well. 

      “I’m excited to see what he can bring in that position because I think he can give us something different.

      Henderson says that Lallana will have plenty of support available from his fellow midfielders if he needs it.

      "He’s enjoying it, he's learning and improving. I've learnt that position over the last few seasons as best I can, so I'll try and help him as much as I can, as well as Fab will who does that role fantastically well.

      "But I think Adam will have his own style in that position and I'm really excited at how he can bring that style in there."

    • Connahs Quay Nomads beat Kilmarnock 2:0 away tonight to knock them out of Europe....   Hilarious but what a fucking joke Scottish football is. I love Celtic but results like this are why they have to travel to fucking Sarajevo etc and get through 3 qualifiers to make the group stages.
