After the initial "FUCK, not fair" I have now arrived at this: Since there's nothing to be done about it we should try to see the possible positives, i.e. other players have to really step up to it now. We did cope without Torres for quite a bit so far this season (although no question it would have been wonderful to have him back at full swing in December), so we have to continue to do just that for a little while longer.
Seeing him last night it did seem to me at times that he didn't feel fully comfortable out there, so hopefully now he'll get all the rest he needs. If that takes till January, so be it, as long as he gets back fully fit. And with fully fit I mean fit in a way that he trusts his own body and muscles again and *then* starts getting game time.
So Nando: get well, do some Christmas shopping and be prepared for huge cheers when you come back.
