Fernando Torres

But yet despite after scoring against Bayern, Torres has failed to start the 3 more important games that followed till yesterday. Since Eto'o has been signed, he has started against Everton, Basel and Fulham. It's clear who he rates as his No.1 and Mourinho is likely to go with his tried and trusted players on Saturday as opposed to taking the risk on someone who plays hot and cold consistently.

The fact remains still that Torres has two more goals than Etoo in lesser games played (Correct me if I´m wrong here). I´m not saying that Etoo isn´t a better player than Torres, but at the moment, one of our strikers actually score. Use him instead of someone who hasn´t.

But you are probably right, he will go with Etoo since he is his first choice.

Being shit on purpose to deflect criticism from his teammates and manager ... Because he's the hero Chelsea deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Bec

a good performance against a lowly team does not mean he gets to start against tottenham.

will he be able to do half the things he did yesterday against tottenham. NO. cant believe after 2 and a half years of pathetic-ness, we still have to go thru this everytime he puts in a performance against a team 2 leagues below us, and mid-table even in that league.

jose has made it pretty clear that etoo is his first choice, and i have no doubt that he sticks to his guns.

I think everyone in here knows the story about Torres last two years in this club, so there is no point to bring it up everytime don´t you think?

Thing is that, if you watched the game, you could see that he actually did everything Mourinho want´s in his team. He tracked back when he/team lost ball. He ran everywhere and made himself available several times.. He did the same against Bayern. Doesn´t that deserve a chance to start against Tottenham, to be fair?

people know the story of last 2 years and yet want to repeat the same old mistake of judging him based on one good performance against a pub team so that he can start a match against tottenham at white hart lane. seems fair!!!

etoo has done everything torres did. his link up play against better opponents than swindon has been good, he has got into scoring positions against those sides, does not lose half as many balls as torres. so i feel etoo deserves to continue starting for us and i feel after 2 and a half year, its high time, we give some1 else half as many oppurtunities as we have been willing to give torres (and still do) in that time frame.

He scored against Bayern Munich as well but lets skip that as it does not fit the agenda.

He was brought to score goals against high caliber opposition nearly every time he has faced them, so far he was scored once each against Barcelona (when all their players were almost in our penalty area), Arsenal, Man.Utd and Bayern. When you invest that highly in a player you expect goals against those teams pretty regularly.

So let me get this straight.

the man does his job (against a lower team, who cares) and he is slated. Yet if he didn't he would be slated as well.

shit, talk about an uphill battle. That isn't right.

IDC if he scores off of a mistake every weekend, a goal is a goal. And he has been in fine form. We haven't looked as good as we did against hull city and bayern. Then he gets dropped, we lose games, Torres somehow still gets blamed (idk how) and then he comes on and does his job and he is still "shit".

Chelsea logic.

I want a guy who has ambition and fight. Looks like mr el Nino is the only one with that at the moment.

but I guess this is why I'm not a manager.

just please Jose, please don't put that old bag of bones eto'o on the field this weekend against spurs. One good tackle and his bones will turn to dust. Hahaha jk!

keep up the work Torres, looking sharp.

go blues!

Torres > Eto'o and Ba.

I'm just going on what we've seen this season so far.

Nando has made three starts and scored twice and assisted once in those appearances. Very healthy statistics as far as I'm concerned.

Torres plays an above average game against Swindon (it wasnt even a great game), and people already ask that he becomes our main striker again...

Eto'o >>>>>> Torres

Well I think that's because Eto'o has played all below average games so far. And no, I don't think he played well against Swindon, I expected him to do better.

I know, but you gotta put things in context...

Torres had two good games. The first was against Bayern, where we played really well as a team. And the other was against Swindon, where he scored and assisted Rambo, but also missed two sitters.

Eto'o had a very good first game, although didnt score. But the Basel and Everton game, he had no chance to thrive because our team was abismal. It is impossible for us to judge Eto'o by those games, he basically only had Oscar trying to give him balls, the rest were dead.

I just cant believe people are falling for Torres yet again. Last year's pre-season I defended Nando and said he would still have one more year of my support, but now it is just stupidity to back him!

I don't think Torres will start. If Eto'o struggles however I think Mourinho will be much quicker to bring him on as a sub.

He certainly helped his cause with his performance against Swindon but he also played the full 90.

I don't think anyone is saying that Torres is back to being the best in the world, but it's just hard to rate Eto'o ahead of him when he hasn't really put in any good performances. I'm not saying that Torres will remain our best striker, just that until Eto'o proves otherwise, Torres is, for me, the best of the worst currently.

no no no, what people are failing to miss is the "team's performance" under the strikers.

we played great against hull and bayern. and torres played a big part of those games. then he gets dropped and we drop huge points.

screw the goal tally and WHO it is against. the team simply plays better under our #9.

you cant even argue that.

It's going to take more than a few games in two and a half years to convince me, what about Old Trafford when every time he touched the ball led to a United counter attack?
