I can proudly confirm I made some personal attempt to get him out of Chelsea. Went to the Wolfsburg game in Constance today and tried to convince them to buy Torres. tried everything from screaming to

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

I disagree. I think confidence and finishing are very closely related. Just to give you an example, I've seen Neymar fail to score goals for Barcelona that he used to score for Santos and Brazil with his eyes closed. I can't watch the videos because I'm on my phone's internet but being confident in the moment of the finishing may change everything, your composure, the type of shot you're going to use, whether you should take another step or not, whether you should try another dribble or just shoot... confidence can completely alter what you're going to do to score. Back to Neymar, I've seen him shoot the ball on the opposing goalkeeper countless times for Barça in situations where he would just chip the ball over the goalkeeper if he were playing for Santos or Brazil, solely for lacking confidence. Other times he would try to dribble too much, other times his aim looked completely off...

Still he probably won't ever score as many of those goals based on pace. Which he seemed to score quite a lot.

I'm talking about technique though you thick bastard. Confidence doesn't make technique suddenly better. For instance I'm a fairly confident guy but can't do an elastico with my left foot and more confidence isn't going to fix that. That's what I'm trying to convey. Confidence will improve composure and all that but I ain't talking about all that.

Those excuses are really amusing though. I just cannot stand at all how some group of fans can even have such strong affection to Torres and constantly find excuses to defend his failure at the club. It's really pathetic when people claim he gave his all/best/100% during his time here. In fact, it's quite an insult to those who have/had actually contributed properly to the club and even more so when some of those players get/got slaughtered more for their mistakes while Torres, whatever bad things he did, was forever faultless in their eyes. :doh:

Can i just mourn/celebrate Torres leaving? The whole world knows we just did an Italian job on Milan, Thought they would wisen up after P.S.G fell for same tactics with Luiz. I am glad our old/static/low esteem strikers have been replaced by Drogba Costa and hopefully Jose's final Magic Trick for the summer.

I will probably say the same about Mikel when he leaves Because i respect his achievements, even though i am his biggest critic. Torres def Broke my heart in ways unimaginable but i like to remember the good times and honestly i wish him the best. WE FINALLY HAVE STRIKERS.... cAN'T WAIT FOR FIFA15

Funny I don't feel anything, but relief. Best wishes to him. He never left Liverpool for Chelsea. Thats the truth. Its like going out with someone that never got over his ex or her's either. You will never have a relationship with that person.

Ultimately whether you like the guy or not, it's a relief for all parties that this is now over. The constant discussion about him, the heightening of hopes when he scored a goal or the blaming of him when things went wrong was simply a distraction for everyone associated with the club.

Financially it was a massive cloud hanging over the club. He's the biggest player expenditure we have on the books each year and he simply didn't justify that position. Not only was it £18 million per year down the drain, but there was also the money we weren't making off a different investment. We could afford almost any player in world football with that money, and that has an effect both on the pitch and off it.

The player was wasting his career here, the club needed to move on and we as fans have a huge weight off of our shoulders. Happiness at this deal is understandable, but it's the relief that should be cherished.

costa should take number 9.

I think this number should be left alone for a while. It's endured world of abuse these past years (Kezman, Crespo, Boulahrouz, Sidwell, Di Santo, Torres).

I think let's leave it alone, let it rest from all the shame, and revisit that number when the time is right. 19 suits Costa very well imo, he could make it his own.
