Fernando Torres … :)
Fernando at the Cheesecake Factory [x]
I agree that he is more likely to score for his country than Chelsea and he has two golden boots to back that up. He isn’t the only striker to struggle at Chelsea. But I do think that games with a player’s club should be considered, and can show if he is in form or not. But it is certainly not the only thing to look at, whether by the coach or fans. All teams are different and past record with the national team is important too.
And I don’t think it is likely that Fernando will be in the final 23. I don’t know why people would be outraged to see him on the preliminary list, but if they are they probably won’t be upset for very long.
He has been struggling ever since he joined Chelsea. Remember that god awful period where he didn’t score goals and people kept mocking him? It was because of the chemistry of the team. I’m sorry if I sound biased or offensive but Chelsea do not have chemistry in their team. It lacks seamlessness and the team really needs to build on its teamwork especially the midfielders and forwards. In other teams Nando has played for, you’d see the players adapting to their teammates’ style, tapping on their strengths and build it on. I haven’t that kind of effort in Chelsea. True, the situation has improved over the recent years but that did not make Nando a successful addition to the team and it’s a waste. Saying that he doesn’t deserve a spot in the NT is an insult to his capabilities. So I don’t understand why people are angry.
