I know I am going to get some stick. However, I feel EOTK is a platform to express our opinions. Therefore, I do not mind if somebody has a difference of opinion. I sawAntoine’s link in today’s Daily Antoine about Torres in trouble after a comment he made about Chelsea’s midfield being too slow.
FernandoTorres! We cannot forgive him for what he did to us, can we? We fans will be cruel sometimes. For us there is nothing more important than the pride of our club. So our anger will be justified…, maybe not. Let us analyze the Torres issue now.
Torrescame to our club and performed really well, He helped us in reaching above the money rich Chelseain a season. But in the next window we sold Alonso, A player who made a real difference in that season. We could not replace him with a quality player and in the next season, we ended up in 7th place. We were going down the hill. There were rumors of Gerrard andTorres leaving the club. Once Hodgson took charge, he metTorres and convinced his plans.Torres agreed. Any body thinks it is because ofRoy he continued in our club? It is because of his love for the club and the fans. Until that, things were o.k. After thatLiverpool football club went through a real bad period, both on and of the pitch. There was nothing promising in that period. For fans like us, we will suffer that because we had to suffer it if we truly supporting a club. Nevertheless, for a player of quality it is not necessary that he should suffer all this especially when somebody is offering a better salary, glory. After all, why he quit his boyhood club for us? It must be for better football, better salary and glory. Moreover, for a player, there will not be more than 3-4 years to in his peak. He might have thought of that too. In addition, for him it is his life, people who are less fortunate like us may not understand how he might have felt especially whenChelsea offering him a fortune.
Fans, including me was became disappointed maybe because we loved him; we made him an equal or bigger idol than Gerrard. I was angry with him for the timing of his transfer request also. He could have given a request a little bit earlier. Any way as time passes by we should forgive for what he has done to us, at the end of the day we have not lost anything. I hope that he will go back to Atletico Madrid and regain his confidence because Chelsea don’t give a S*** about the injured and out of form players, now I feel he is out of his mind and really struggling.
It will be painful for him for many reasons. Firstly he knows he took a wrong decision in going to Chelsea, secondly now he know the difference between the Liverpool fans and Chelsea fans, and finally now he know how people will treat him in the real world if you lose your form.
Let us forgive him. Wish him better luck in some other team in some other country and we can say as in folks, ‘we had a player fast as Wind, as strong as a Bull. We conquered many Cities and castles with him, but unfortunately he gone out of his mind, he went away and nobody ever heard of him ever after that’.
