I'd agree with that now for sure. Drogba started out hot and has fizzled as of late. Torres has had flashes of brilliance but I think service has let him down a bit as well. I think they could try Drogba+Torres while maybe trying to move Anelka+Malouda to the wings, keeping Lampard+Essien inside. You'd have Kalou/Rameris/Mikel to move around at least. They are in a pickle because it's hard to not play Torres/Drogba just on the potential upside they bring, even though Anelka seems to be a little more consistent. I'd much rather have the problem of too many able strikers than not enough to call on.

@Konja...heard that too. That could have saved them from making the Carroll deal in a rush. There were talks of even Newcastle contact but I'm sure he turned his nose up at that as well.

I am amused at how angry majority of liverpool fans are at torres. This is the same fellow who left the team that made him a pro and gave him the role of a leader so he could play in the CL. Ah history doesnt repeat itself, it echos.

Normally I dont watch the epl at all, but holy sh*t, this weekend will be awesome. Granted he is not at that dastardly level of being targeted with a pig's head but I hope the kop or whatever they be called throw a burning torres jersey at him. However, if torres scores he will just taunt the fans by kissing the chelsea badge, which will piss them off even more. Never would a game be filled with such hilarity and drama.

Not too fussed tbh bout Torres, was only good in 07-08, after that injuries meant down down down..More peeved with the 35 mil Carroll, but I guess when you're in a desert, you'll prob buy a bottle of water even for 35 bucks than a pair of new boots for 35 bucks.

I've got to say, best use of a Harry Potter meme I have seen in a long time :lol:
