There's no excuse, Torres should of scored the first chance i don't care what you say.

He only had two defenders on him and a keeper in his path... No pressure then. And the point here really is had that chance of been any other striker in the league, you wouldn't have people blowing it up as if it was easy, it would of been par for the course and never spoke of again.

And even if I were to concede that the first chance was easy, it doesn't change the fact that the rest of the chances were not, and people getting on his back as if he missed four sitters is ridiculous. Particularly when he finished the game with a goal and 2 assists.

No, no, no stop being like Liverpool, theres no excuse at all, for a player who has scored the goals he has had, and the goal records he has had, he must score that. He was one on one, on an angle but still a great chance, and the keeper didn't make a great save, he just kicked it at the keeper, very poor from torres.

Rebound for Sturridge. Yes, it's technically an 'assist'.

Sloth, no disrespect, but this is now getting boring. We all know that FT has been shyt, and has only scored lucky goals, and wasted a thousand chances. Even my daughter knows it. But why should I be reading the same thing in every thread on this forum. I know you are free to express yourself, but seriously...... lets just wait and see what he can do for the club.

Technically yes, but seriously.. he knew nothing about it lol. It's desperate to use it as a measure for his efficiency. I think only calculated assists should be used as an argument to a player's overall performance.

But the other side of that coin is that he was in the right place at the right time and was nailed on for a goal only for some great defending to deny him. His work lead to the goal.

In other words, had he not of been in that position to strike it in the first place, it probably rolled across the face of goal and nothing would of came of it.

True, at least he wasn't camping on the wing.

Correct, but that's how these things are considered.

I would rather point towards his movement for the second goal (the first for Ivanovic), his run took away a defender and opened up space for Ivan to exploit. Not an assist technically but a better indicator of his contribution.

Sloth, for all his past achievements, goal records and ability, unfortunately sport by it's very nature is not a game of absolutes. And so my point still stands, anybody else makes that shot, the world goes, "oh, poor effort" and then forgets about it. Because it happens to the very worst, right up to the very best. However, because this is Torres, the harsh criticism gets milked for all it's worth, and then, despite the fact that he creates two assists and scores a goal, people still find the time to moan even though our teams problems are greater than him.

Fuck off mate, for a 50 million pound striker, and his achievements past experience, the striker of his calibur, he takes a shot like that, no excuse like i said. Making up excuses like that you should sign up to RAWK.

Are you taking the piss?, are you squeezing my tits?, this is unbelievable...

Torres should of scored in that situation, i don't care what you say, and should of had a better effort, i'm saying theres no excuse for that. You can't just keep making up excuses, like Liverpool are with Andy Carroll and there full team etc, he should of scored and you people are making up excuses and all this

UNBELIEVABLE JEFF!

No because you're making a big deal out of nothing, he had a one on one chance and he missed, is he the only striker to have ever missed one?

RVP who scores every freaking week missed one against Milan, no need to go on and on about it. Especially since he made up for it later in the game.

I'm not making a big deal out of it, i blatently said that there was no excuses for his first miss, but people seem to think there is, all this too much pressure, and that malarky, if that's the case then there's an excuse for everything and no one does wrong.

Yeah, maybe Torres should have scored but why would you go on and on about that chance, especially considering he scored another late on and had 2 assists that game. Seems weird, there were more positives than negatives in that game and yet you choose to focus on the negative.

Everyone misses chances, doesn't make sense to throw the guy under the bus if he missed one that game. Especially considering he redeemed himself after.
