I remember how Nik Young was hyping Torres up early this season.

Yeh I agree, what a waste of money, imagine if that money was spent on Suarez instead. His contract is the worst part, it's like 250,000 for 4 more years, that means no other team will even be able to afford a team. The teams rich enough to afford him don't want him because he sucks, the teams that still want him can't afford his ridiculous contract.

Torres for 4 more years-a fate worse than death.

Still think he will get double digit goals though

I dont understand why Chelsea are so inpatient with Lukaku. Dont buy Falcao in january and see how Lukaku devolops throughout the season.

Di Matteo should play Sturrigde as striker, although he is the biggest ballhog I have ever seen besides Queresma.

some of the votes have been 'leaked' and its pretty obvious that messi will win the award for the 4th time in a row
its interesting to see who will end up 2nd between iniesta and c.r.

Sturridge has no right foot but he should start ahead of Torres. Also Lukaku should have been allowed to compete for the starting job vs Torres this year.

Torres only plays because of politics. Ancellotti, Villas-Boas and now Di Matteo don't want to play him but they are forced to to try to save face for Roman and also because of his enormously stupid contract.

Torres is the main reason Ancellotti got fired. His path of destruction is already too huge.

Lukaku hmmm, ok he has good composure, good in the air and two footed, he has heavy touch sometimes but Torres is way worse these days.

Yeh I'd be happy with him as number 1, but no one at the club was ballsy enough to gamble on the chance that he would be able to lead the line of such a huge club at 20 years old, still though HE'S NEVER BEEN GIVEN A CHANCE.

Now at Westbrom Shane Long has been a beast so he doesn't even start there. If I were him I'd be pissed and wish I had gone to Ajax or something, I really hope his early years don't get wasted, Lukaku is a tank, he just needs to get a higher work rate on the field and improve technique abit. Loads of times he looks lazy Berbatov style but he gets goals.

Dunno why Chelsea bothers paying so much for him if they don't even plan on giving him a chance, I'm with you, I don't understand Chelsea's transfer policy either.

Also Essien shouldn't have been allowed to leave, Romeu got hype early in his england career but he kind of sucks. Mikel and Ramires are a brilliant first choice midfield but it would be good to have a third guy competing with them. Oscar in the future could play that deep one day.

Torres atleast has really good link up play, I think that's the only reason he's starting ahead of Sturridge now.

Great performance yesterday (despite Ronaldo's best attempts to make the game a personal battle between him and the side boards)

Benzema <3 his grace and sincere attempt to play like an artist is inspiring.

Snoop Dogg wants to invest in Celtic FC of Scotland just because they beat Barca.

Torres atleast has really good link up play, I think that's the only reason he's starting ahead of Sturridge now.

Steve Clark rotates his strikers a lot, but Shane Long is first choice there. And Lukaku although has shown glimpses at West Brom, he is nowhere near good enough to be given a chance at Chelsea. He might have got a few chances till January here just cause how shit Torres has been, but presumably once Chelsea get one or even two strikers in Jan Lukaku would have got zero game time for the rest of the season. And no he's not two-footed, he's probably the most one-footed striker in the EPL. He has absolutely no right foot at all. He's got a huge ceiling though, but unless he can improve his technique he's going to find it hard to fit into the new look Chelsea. And Chelsea paid 12M for Lukaku, nothing extraordinary for such a young striker with such a high potential. However, it could get up to 18M due to appearance clauses.

And Essien is garbage, he's past it. We should have kept him though just cause we lack squad depth, but he's not good enough for Chelsea either. I would have rather kept Meireles than Essien. Oriol should be fine, he's been poor this season but he was decent against West Brom, but suffered because you can't partner Romeu and Mikel, stupid decision by RDM, but I think he was forced to rest Ramires due to Juventus tomorrow.
