We know he'll come good at some point. Until that point I'm going to enjoy every Chavski game that he doesn't score it.

A couple of weeks back the media would have had you believe that after a ropey couple of games for the Chavs he was getting back tot he player that he was during his first 18 months with us. I still can't see it. Not that I'm complaining.

Maybe not though

His body language is worse than it was for us. Sulking, lazy, moaning, no tracking back.

I think he's lost his love for the game.

Possible problems at home.

He's an absolute world class player, but something's clearly wrong, his hearts not in it right now.

It must be something fairly deep rooted. For the last couple of years we've had to listen to the various excuses of he's not fit, the behind the scenes turmoil is affecting him and the team, the sale of our best players if affecting him, the quality of our team is just not good enough.

He moves to the Chavs and by general consensus is said to be he's as fit as he's been for over a year yet he's still not performing. He can't use the behind the scenes turmoil, poor squad or sale of best players excuse.

This post needs more speculation!

Torres has been off his football for a while. The only bit off form he showed was in Jan when he tried to get his move. Had a bad World Cup and was poor for most of last season. Long may it continue.

We're free to speculate now as he's no longer our player.

A very good lawyer friend of mine has confirmed this as true,he does some legal work for them.He also tells me that Terry may be in a bit of bother again,he has an injunction but may not be water tight.Something about youth team players.

50m is a massive wedge, no matter how rich you are that is going to hurt.

Im seriousley glad we got rid of him for 50m. Iv got a feeling that like Fowler & Owen his best days were pre 25.

Im not sure whether its his desire, or maybe even his injuries are worst than first expected.

Either way he's not the same player. Chelsea have gambled 50m on him returning to his 2007-2009 form, but i honestly think we wont see that player again.

A brilliant bit of business swapping him for two younger & hungrier strikers.

He used to look like that playing for Athletico and I'm starting to think that's the person he truly is on the pitch.

Maybe the short time with us when he looked up for it in the first year was his peak in terms of appearing like he actually enjoyed football.

It might have been when he first started getting hole off his missus, and now they've got a baby he's not getting it any more.

Did anyone else do a small puke when he ran up and hugged Terry after their first goal?

Don't think there will be another player in my lifetime who has left me as disappointed and let down as Nando.

But in all honesty I genuinely feel we got the better deal, absolutely convinced of it.

Harsh. I know that's how Tee comes across at first, but if you give him a bit more time he grows on you.

Hmmm on second thoughts I suppose that does sound like a cancer doesn't it

I expect one or two decidedly average seasons from him at Chelsea sprinkled with a few moments of genius followed by a return/loan back to Spain. Atletico, Villareal or some side of that standard. Should be getting back to fitness now but looked totally fucking useless last night. Looks about 2 stone heavier than the greyhound we signed 4 years ago. 50 mill was total fucking madness on their part and I don't subscribe to this "Only a matter of time till he's back to his best/ you don't lose what he's got" shite. I fear(don't really) for his future as a top player at domestic and particularly international level. How on earth can you walk into a Spanish squad playing like he has?
