So apparently Fernando Torres is unhappy with life at Chelsea. Not surprising, but you can see this from two viewpoints, Chelsea’s, or Torres’.
Torres has been getting a lack of first team opportunities at Chelsea, mainly due to his absence of goalscoring form, or even goalscoring threat. Back at Liverpool, every time Torres touched the ball, there was immediate danger; a lethal striker who could score from anywhere, long range, tap ins, headers, left foot, right foot, it didn’t matter one bit, he would put the ball in the back of the net. But with 12 goals in 64 games for Chelsea, who can blame them for leaving him on the bench? Especially when they have players like Didier Drogba at their disposal (although the Champions League Final looks set to be his last game in a Chelsea shirt)? The manager has obviously got to pick the player who is more likely to give them the points, rather than have an open goal and blast it wide. (Remember Manchester United, anyone?)
