I can't believe much of the thread is dominated by Torres talk. I also can't believe people still chastise him, and engage in "he's a c*nt, destroyed my belief in players" type of talk. Its pathetic really. So he suggested in an interview that Liverpool is not the biggest club around. So f. what? We all know that we are not among the PL's cream any more, and that we haven't been there for a while, with an exception of one Rafa's season where he succeeded to wheel-and-deal us into a squad that contained a talented and experienced first-11 that could beat anyone in the world football, but that still lacked enough depth to compete with the likes of MU or MC of today. Given our ownership at the time, that's the most Rafa could possibly achieve, and now we are facing a prolonged, I'm-scared-to-even-put-a-number-of-years period of rebuilding to get close to competing with the likes of MC and probably MU who will have to reinvest heavily over the summer so as not to be clearly overmatched by MC next season.
After a couple of years of broken promises under terrible ownership Torres had a moment when he said he wanted to leave. All star players have such moments, including Gerrard, Rooney, Owen, Macca, etc, etc... His request should've been laughed off by one D. Commoli as last minute nonsense!!! Instead, Damien decided to play last-minute big money transfer acrobatics which, judging by this point in time, for all intents and purposes turned disastrous.
Going off topic but....
What? It has little to do with comoli.Even in reinas book he says that torres could have went in the summer. Reina also said that the transfer was on the books for a few weeks before it actually happened.So where the fck are u making the comoli bullshit out of? You re after turning a discussion about whether it is worth talking about torres and the game tonight into complete shite blaming comoli for it?
It wasnt last minute nonsense.He goes on about broken promises and shit.Who lied to him? The cnuts of owners that we had? Rafa? the fans? He had been promised investment so it was the owners who broke them promises.Not the badge.We didnt break any promises nor did the club ,just the pricks who owned the club.They left and he still fucked off so fuck him.You cant blame anyone but him for that.Not comoli not no-one.Torres is in the same bracket as owen.Two pricks who deserve any abuse they get.
Anyway.onto tonight.I think torres will start.
Our team will be inpredictable(as always) but i dont think we will play a bunch of youngsters as some have wanted.
Sterling will be on the bench again id say.
We'll go.I know theres no gerrard but i can see kuyt and maxi starting ,same with carroll and i think he will want to give aurelio carra and coates a bit of game time too
Kelly Coates carra aurelio
