Aren’t you all a bit annoyed with this? Nerved? Irritated? Shirty? To be honest: I. Am. Sick. Of. It. Of this entire Fernando Torres talks/debates/discussion etc we get served everywhere: telly, tabloids, magazines, internet, twitter, forums, in the pub, in the library, on the bus …. You can’t even go and buy a stupid bread without being said how poor Fernando Torres is playing these days. Oh give me a bloody brake! Give him and yourself a break too!
Everywhere you turn, someone is talking about Torres. He did this, he did that. He ddin’t this and he didn’t that. He’s to blame for this, he’s to blame for that. Yer wa? Sure, it’s easy to criticize someone who’s making headlines, and easy to repeat what the others say. In fact: it’s poor. It doesn’t make any sense. It. Is. Boring.
So what’s next then? Is Torres to blame for Chernobyl? For the hole in the ozone layer? For the earth warming? I’m sure someone will come up with this sooner or later. Jamie R. perhaps? He’s THE pundit, isn’t he?
The fact is, not only Torres is a shadow of himself: the whole team is. The whole team keeps on struggling, but also improving. So all we need is to be patient! Critics do not help at all. Not a bit. But it’s the easiest way, isn’t it? Especially for someone who hasn’t got his own opinion and just repeats “the pundits”.
I mean, can we imagine, under which pressure Torres is living? We can’t. This pressure is immense. Matches like this one we’ve very recently lost do not ease this pressure. Torres still is suffering from injuries, he played three years without a break (injuries do not count as a brake, do they?), world cups, Europe cups, confederations cups … This man is tired! He has the right to be tired. He’s just a human! I am sure he’s not reading what is being told and written on him, but he also can avoid picking this or that. It’s impossible, as you can imagine, and I believe you can. This didn’t make thing better and easier for him. This only increase the pressure. Sounds logical, doesn’t it? It does me. So, please, leave Fernando alone and focus on football, will you? Thank you.
Furthermore, we are Liverpool Football Club. We do not need poor excuses like that. The entire club is struggling, and it’s not a single player’s fault. If a match has been lost: the TEAM lost it. The team lost it as a whole. But it’s easy to shoot when “the target” can defend himself, isn’t it?
And yes, I do know what you all will think now: she’s a woman, she’s defending him because she fancies him. No, I do not defend Fernando Torres because his pretty. I defend him because I’m able to think independently, and because I am being realistic.
