I know the subject of Torres wanted move to Chelsea has been beat to death. It is so old now and there is so much said about it. Trust me; I would like nothing better than to write about Luis Suarez, new signings, games, and fans. Everything else has been over shadowed by Torres’ request to leave. That and the lack of any new news today has me dwelling over Nando’s change of heart.
This got me thinking, what do Chelsea fans think of the transfer talk? Torres has had multiple run-ins with Chelsea players in the past three years. The most memorable in my mind is at Torres’ Anfield debut. Fernando ran into Terry on two occasions prompting John Terry to confront the Spaniard. He was obviously not saying nice words to Torres, but he was fresh of the plane from Madrid and did not understand much English. Of course Torres got the jist of it and there were a few harsh words said on the field.
Torres has also not had a good history with Chelsea fans. He accidentally celebrated a goal in front of them, and from there it has been down hill. They have been almost worse than Manchester United fans at singing degrading songs about him and being openly critical of him.
There has been a lot of talk about if Liverpool fans can forgive Torres if he ends up staying. But if he does leave, can Chelsea fans forget the past he has had with them? Maybe if he gets enough goals they can forget anything.
