The problem of Torres is not being alone against 3 defenders, his problem is his own team. Fernando Torres is the only player that would play in the Atlético that I know since I was a kid.GICA said:No, he´s not so good in one to one vs the keepers. Yes, it´s easier to score the goals in R.Madrid but I find funny how some fans try sometimes to justify Torres saying that he plays alone vs 2-3 defenders. A lot of strikers are forced to do that too.
On the other hand, I´m not saying that Torres is bad player. He´s a great prospect and I hope he can improve some things to become a fantastic player.
I agree!El Fenómeno. said:He is scary good.
Fernando Torres is NOT overrated. Anybody who is merely 20 years of age but is the captain of his hometown team with an incredible goals tally can't be overrated.
He deserves all the hype he gets.
I think that no one denies his will and effort, but if you pretend to be big, this is not enough. A great striker must score 1 chance out of 3 or 4. Fernando Torres wasted like 10 balls in the box, 4 or 5 of them were very clear. Ronaldo had 2 balls and scored 2 goals, Fernando had 10 and he didn't score.Xue said:He's not too bad (so is Van der vaart, mind you.)
Seeing how he tried this morning, it was only sad that Iker denied him several times. He was really, really trying very hard.
Perhaps that's what that distinguishes young, ambitious stars - they are really determined.
