The past few days have seemed a bit unreal. We’ve bought Suarez, and then later that day Fernando Torres hands in a transfer request. The article on LFC.tv about the transfer request has had over 3,000 comments, everyone’s posting about Torres on Liverpool’s Facebook page. But now it is time to move on.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea have been given £100m to spend. So why not just pay £50m + Anelka and get the deal over and done with. Why decide to bid £45m when you know that Torres’ contract clause is £50m. I bet he’ll just get injured after three weeks if he moves to Chelsea. Anyway, the point is we do not need Torres. He is not consistent for us and it has shown this season he is quite a selfish player. If you look back when we played Everton, there were at least two chances he could have passed the ball to a team-mate who would then have faced an open goal. Instead, he shot himself – and missed. From the expressions on his face when we played Wolves, he made it quite clear he didn’t want to play for us anymore and there was a massive hole in this “loyalty” he had for the club.
The question is though, why does he submit his transfer request now? Only he knows. We are a club that is moving up, Chelsea are a club that are moving down. If Fernando does leave, it will be a loss to him and maybe even his wife.
All I’m saying is we need to move on from this Torres saga – if he goes, then he goes. We get loads of money to spend on new players in the summer, and a player that can try and help us push for a European spot. Ever since Fernando’s hair cut, he’s been going down hill and I think it’s time for him to go. Hopefully Luis Suarez will now get the attention he deserves and become a class player just like what we turned Fernando in to. I’m not going to beg Torres to stay, and I’m not going to abuse him. Overall, he has helped the club in times of need, it’s just unfortunate he might not be here to help us any more.
If he goes, he goes; and if he stays, he stays. Fernando has done good, and he has done bad. Let’s just hope whatever happens will be best for the club, and lets start looking forward to Luis Suarez once again.
