I've just seen that Suarez 'goal' for myself. How desperate are the media for him to be a hit? Giving him goals that aren't even his. Come on El nino show 'em how it's done.

On a different topic,Anyone else absoloutely sick of hearing Holloways big mouth and how great his precious Charlie Adam is all the time?

By the way, Chelsea TV showed some clips of training, and like yesterday Nando produced the MOST delicious chip to score over Hilario.

Even my 9yo niece would score with Hilario in goal,but i like the idea of your most inept goalkeeper facing your deadliest striker(arguably).Not that Torres needs any motivation exercise anyway.

I take Holloway with a pinch of salt.Some of his interviews this season has been TV gold,even though he can over do it on the ad-libs.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Chelsea may have made a mistake by signing Fernando Torres.

The Spaniard arrived from Liverpoolspacer.gif for a British record £50million on transfer deadline day to bolster the Blues' forward line and aid their assault for trophies this term.

But former Chelseaspacer.gif striker Hasselbaink - who netted 70 goals in 136 league games for the Londoners - believes Carlo Ancelotti's side may have paid over the odds for the 26-year-old.

And he also reckons the Bluesspacer.gif should have spent the money on a creative influence, rather than adding to their selection of frontmen.

"He's a good player but he's not been playing consistently for the last two years," Hasselbaink told Sky Sports News HD. "So in a way I'm a little bit surprised that he cost £50million - which is a lot of money.

"And the problem Chelsea have had this year is creating goal-scoring opportunities. Torresspacer.gif is a finisher, not a creator. I don't think he is the solution."

Problem

Torres' arrival has cast uncertainty over the places of Didier Drogbaspacer.gif and Nicolas Anelkaspacer.gifand Hasselbaink doesn't envisage all three playing in unison, while he is in no doubt as to who will be the main man of that attacking trio.

"Where does it leave Drogba and Anelka?" said the ex-Netherlands man. "You can't put Drogba on the wing and Anelka prefers to play in the middle as well, so there is a little problem with Torres coming in.

"I don't see them (all three) playing together, so it's going to be all one or the other. Torres comes with a big premium, so I think he will get the nod."

Chelsea's new No.9 could make his Blues debut on Sunday in a potentially mouth-watering clash with the club he has just left, Liverpool.

And Hasselbaink says there is a sure-fire way that Torres can immediately endear himself to the Chelsea faithful.

"It will be a difficult match for him," added the former Stamford Bridge star. "He has been bought for £50m in a big move, but he can silence a lot of people by scoring the winner."

If Torres is given the chances Kalou gets in a game, he'll score 40 for us before the end of the season :lol:

If he was playing against Sunderland he would have scored a hattrick that's for sure.

Jimmy for Coach :champions:

Honestly, he made some good points here, and that's exactly why I was against this transfert. But now I hope Anelka's new position will bring us this creativity which we have lacked.

And to be frank I doubt Torres will justify his £50 million price tag. It's a big amount and I think barring Messi and CR7, nobody worth £50m at the moment. But if he can justify just some £25 million, I will be happy.
