I think singing and cheering for Torres would fuck his head up worse than booing him - the latter being the Carroll-at-Newcastle effect, only serving to spur him on in his new career and severing all realistic hope of a return, whilst the former would just give him more cause for doubt about Chelsea.
I don't doubt that he will have a very poor reception, though.
I agree with this statement and encourage all who are going to the game to either not boo Torres, or give him a clap or two, and go further to give him a rousing applause if he is subbed on/off. Him not playing in the FA Cup final, and spending some time in the LFC dressing room after the game, shows that he is having doubts about his current situation at Chelsea.
The fans of Liverpool FC showed their heart, passion, and courage by outsinging the plastics at Wembley. This reputation can only grow if we are decent towards a former red. The way he left was shocking, but the lad has had quite a horrible time with the plastics. He made a monumental mistake for his career it also had a big effect on us, and he is realising this now. Regardless of his behaviour, if we boo him and try to injure him then LFC and its fans will be seen as bitter and spiteful. The last thing we need this season is more bad press. The fans of LFC are not bitter, the Bitters are at Goodison.
This approach would also allow for the very remote possibility that he returns. As the Tevez 'saga' has shown, all that really matters is that when you are on the pitch for your club, you give your all, and play to the best of your ability. For a striker, all bad history is washed away when he starts scoring goals.
It would make a riveting story to go from the betrayal of a year and a half ago, the hate that fostered, the laughter and satisfaction of his failure, the pitying over time, the nostalgia for former glory days, the warm reception from fans - a sign of forgiveness, the chance at redemption, restoring a suffering club and its suffering fans to long-lost glory.
The idea brings tears to my eyes (even though the chances are extremely slim). But I implore each and every one of you to at least leave the door open. The benefits of showing forgiveness and being decent far outweigh the short-term benefits of getting revenge.
Every fan is, of course, allowed to vote with their voice (and their feet), however, I hope in my heart that we take the high road tomorrow night.
