Fernando Torres is once again the butt of the jokes on social media.
The Chelsea striker missed a guilt-edged chance in Chelsea’s friendly with Olimpija on Sunday and many of the old criticisms of El Nino have come to the fore.
Torres of course has made a habit of missing this kind of sitter and it is unlikely to do his confidence any good following an indifferent season and World Cup campaign with Spain.
The fact Diego Costa scored in Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Olimpija only compounds matters.
Throw in Didier Drogba’s arrival at Stamford Bridge and you wonder if Torres has any future under Jose Mourinho.

Atletico please. The fans want him so get him. Pay the fee. Take Torres back.

If Torres had smashed a goal in from 25 yards he would of been rightly praised. He missed one from 2 yards so he is being rightly criticised

You lot continue slagging off Torres cos that obviously helps – if you don't mind, as long as he's a CFC player I'll keep supporting him ok

I've seen vines for Torres' miss on my TL more than vines for Costa's goal. People are being very hard on him, although the miss was awful.

Lets all sit at home tweeting and laughing about a Champions League and World Cup winner, Torres must be gutted imo.

To be fair to the fans, I've never seen a worse player given a fairer crack of the whip than Torres. He still gets a heroes welcome now.

Perhaps they should convert Torres to a Centre Back, some of his howlers could be alternatively viewed as great clearances
