Dear anti Chelsea rags

Your no doubt in your office right now obsessing over Fernando Torres and his open goal miss but can i care to remind you that there has been much worse in this video, including not one, two but three open goal misses by David Villa, one by Cristiano Ronaldo and two by Thierry Henry.


and here is the Sun and Mirror's lovechild Ryan Giggs missing a open goal against Arsenal

Where were the obssesive articles then?

While I commend your effort here..

I do have to give you the sad reality check that, all those stars you named, were in their prime when they missed. If this was Liverpool-Torres, we'd laugh and forget quite quickly.

Not that he didn't play well... But just saying. When (or if..) he finds form, most will forget this, and laugh at it.

I'm laughing about it already.

Luckily I live in the US and don't have the English media shoving it down my throat and I try my best to not read the stuff online. It was a terrible miss. Shit happens. I'm going to be cautiously optimistic that Torres' trendline is on a positive slope.

I didn't go overboard after his BL game and just thought he had a decent game which was made good with 2 assists. He only had a goal today but was in such threatening form. It's the first Chelsea game where I thought he was actually menacing. So I won't go overboard now, but I hope he carries on his improvement.

I actually don't think the miss was as confidence sapping as the media is painting it. I think they WISH it was but the reality is Torres will feel awful about the miss but optimistic about his overall game. He's a striker and though he may be quiet, he's likely got a striker's ego too. He must feel confident now about his game AND that for the first time in 8 months, his teammates are recognizing and rewarding his runs. That's all he can ask for. He got two golden passes today. One he stuffed and the other he fluffed. He also made a couple of chances for himself.

How can you even lose confidence with that miss anyway? He would make that 99 times out of 100 blindfolded. It was just a freak miss. It's nothing to do with confidence. I would be more concerned with the other two misses he had to be frank.

Ahahha, Rooney silpped just like JT did in 2008, but he'll pay more in the future.

Chinese people believe in RenPin, which can be accumulate by missing chances and giving shit form, and you will lose RP when wining bigmatch by luck . So I seriously consider Rooney is paying for his RP in CL Final, and ManU is losing their RP for their big-wins. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

It's all joking.

Let's see what happens next. I am looking forward to Torres in next game, and also the Carling Cup in the mid-week which could be a game for our hot-prospects

Exactly!!!! I was thinking the same thing. The presenters here were going crazy, analysing every single detail about that chance and commenting that "he's back to square one" and all that rubbish! If that was Ramires again or something there's no way they would have made such a meal of it. He will take a lot of heart from yesterday's performance and AVB will continute to motivate him.

The press are a useless pile of s**t. Not one match report has gone in to analyse the attacking play of both teams and the fact that it was one of the most entertaining games between any of the top teams for years. Instead they focus on obvious bits of negative Torres miss, Rooney Miss, Coles tackle ect.... worse than bloody Heat magazine.
