Can we take him back for a refund? Fernando Torres epic defending v Steaua

Dear oh dear. Fernando Torres was once lauded as one of the best strikers in the world.

Now the £50 million Chelsea man is a laughing stock for all. Aged 28, Torres should be at the top of his game.

However, since signing for Chelsea in 2011, the Spanish ‘goalgetter’ has managed a pathetic 14 goals in 74 league games.

Thursday night was no different for the record Blues signing. In Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Romanian club Steaua Bucharest, Fernando Torres’s performance was poor, even by his recent standards.

His dribbling was laughable, and when he was put in for a one-on-one by Frank Lampard, he inexplicably chose to clear the ball from the Romanian goalmouth.

101GG is beginning to feel a little sympathetic towards the megaflop that is Fernando Torres.
