Paul Merson, beloved by off licenses and feared by Gamblers Anonymous, has always struck an in-depth opinion on the football latest. By in-depth, I mean we would literally have to drill into that rock of a brain to see what the heck he is thinking to say such things. Before he said on Tuesday, “Paying 50 million for Messi would be a gamble” , we cannot argue with him there, he is after all the expert, Merson said something else.
“Torres will score more goals this season than Suarez and Carroll together”
Oh really Paul?
Let us see if that comes to be. Henceforth, I’ll be keeping a tally after each game to see who victors this statement. It will be interesting won’t it? I daresay Torres will score quite a few goals for the blues, provided he avoids any treacherous slippy grass surfaces and avoids twisting his leg. I know Chelsea are loaded rich, but after so many medical bills and leg replacements, you’ll be having stern conversations with bank managers.
The tally has begun. If our Luis’ goal stands from last night, I believe that makes Team Carroll-Suarez at 1?
Carroll-Saurez : 1 (subject to FA learning physics)
Torres : 0
In other news, our old friend Mascherano has gave another interview from the Barcelona bench. He gives the world his insight on Torres leaving the club, and especially, his manner on he did leave.
“I was not surprised about what happened with Fernando. When I left Liverpool, it looked as if I killed someone”
Of course you killed someone. You killed yourself. In the justification of your greedy heart you went off to Barcelona to let your arse conduct heat for everyone else who would be lodging on the sub bench.
“when the reality is that Liverpool didn’t show the interest in keeping us in the club.”
I’m sorry? What? If I remember correctly, Rafa did not say “Cherrio!” to yourself. I am positive he had extensive conversations with you about how you where in the teams future, and held a vital role. If ‘showing an interest’ is clinging to your leg and the airport begging you not to go, sorry mate, you are not bigger than this club, and never will be. You decided one day, I don’t want to play for this club anymore. Of course we are not going to stop you, only clubs like Manchester United would bloat a players wallet to make them stay and play for them.
“The most important players didn’t leave the club well.”
Xabi Alonso does not exactly have a death-threat hanging over his head? In fact, he has even popped over to see us play once in a while, where the heck have you been o’ devoted fucko? Ah yes, can’t let that plastic sufrace get cold now can we? Even in Spain? No, ah right then. Albert Reira left this club very well, it was a sound tactical operation to convince ANYONE to take the useless moany lump, but by god we did it. Did not leave well? It was a roaring success Masch a few to stage that parade for him, but it was worth it.
Either way, Masch has what he wants, we will wait for his next annual murmurings that are about Liverpool, and not Barcelona, yet again.
In conclusion, our new tally for the season, Carroll-Saurez v Torres has begun. Lets get it on.
