I give RDM a lot of credit. The confidence RDM has in him seems to be paying off.

It's all about communication and 'hands around shoulder' method.

Is 7 goals and 12 assists in 24 starts (17 full 90 mins) really all that bad?

For a 50m striker it is, really, really bad.

Its not coincidence that he is playing nice after AVB was fired. The guys was fucking everything.

3 goals and 6 assists in the EPL :confused:

It's pretty bad, even tonight in one of his best games for us - he missed a lot of clear chances and he still hasn't scored a winner.

I thought this was one of his worse games actually, funny thing is he scored and no one cares :lol:

He's actually making runs INTO the box and going for difficult headers.

That's the most important point IMO.

The chance Luiz created for him in the first half was the first purely Torres-que chance I remember him getting at Chelsea, at the time I wasn't sure whether to read more into him getting that chance or failing to score from it.

His second goal was a result of a tidy and calm finish, a pretty shocking fact considering what we're used to.

He coulda had a hat trick so the main positive thing is that he is getting into those positions again and if he keeps getting himself in those positions, he will keep scoring. Was glad Danny passed to him because i thought he'd go solo again, and look Danny, look what happens when you pass the ball to someone in a better position. Not rocket science mate.

I don't think you could call many of today's chances clear. I'm guessing you're referring to to the two from close range, but really, if anything, the defending there has to be commended.

My boy Fernando getting it done today...

I'll defend him to the death so long as he's playing well. And his performances of late have deserved no more criticism, in fact recently, quite often less than any amount of players on the pitch.

If two assists and a goal is one of his worse games, then I for one think he should be a guaranteed starter.

No where near one of his best games for us. Why because he scored? To say that you think that was one of his best games shows your lack of knowledge regarding the player or you just believe the nonsense thrown at him by the media.

These clear cut chances you speak of he put his foot out and had a shot and if it was not for two amazing tackles he would of had a hatrick tonight but that cannot be stopped, that is what the defenders are there to do.

He set up a goal and he scored one. He has been playing well as of late and i will stick up for him when its due.

In terms of overall play, he wasn't as good as he has been recently imo.

But i'm not complaining, he got himself into good positions to score, scored a very good goal to seal the win, and also had a brilliant assist when Villa had all the momentum.

Actually it was 5 chances the entire game and most of them were pretty clear cut:

1) Luiz through ball - Torres tame shot at goal keeper

2) Scuffed shot due to defender jumping into his feet(he was about 1-2m away from the goal) - Sturridge scores on the rebound

3) Scuffed shot at another defender(once again very close to the goal)

4) Ball is passed towards him from flank he doesn't move towards it thinking Lampard is behind him despite being in a good position facing the goal.

5) Goal

If Drogba was on the bench he would never even scored because he would have been bought off as the last substitution.

He was actually pretty poor, but the strange thing is, according to stats he played well. When usually he plays well but according to stats he plays bad lmao, FUCK YOU FOOTBALL STOP BEING SO FUCKING WEIRD.

were you watching the same game i'll give you 3 out of those 5 the two that were blocked are not the definition of clear cut if anything they are half chances at best..not defending torres cause he was poor today but the slagging of a man who has been working his as* off to get back and pay the club and fans back for what we paid to bring him here is unnecessary...and the fact that hes seems to be finding form we need to back him
