John Terry Backs “World Class” Torres To Bang In The Goals Next

By on July 21, 2011

Chelsea skipper John Terry is hoping the form of Fernando Torres continues into the new season.

Terry spoke admirably about Torres and his pre-season form and claims the striker looks sharp, fit and ready to lead Chelsea to the title.

“He backs himself,” he said. “He realises from the World Cup he had a slight injury and carried that towards the end of last season.

“He feels fresh, he’s happy. He’s fully settled. I’m certainly looking for him to get double figures goals wise.

“He was still good at times last year. He’s a world-class player and the price tag is a big weight to carry on your shoulders.

“He’s got all the ability in the world. He’s very quick and a great finisher.

“We’re delighted to have him and if he can bring goals along with what we already have then fantastic.”

The £50million striker was labelled a “flop” after his move from Liverpool in January, but the Spanish international will be keen to prove his critics wrong next season and recapture the form that saw the Blues part with so much money for him.

    No he wont succeed, he’s been poor even since the Euro’s. Under a new manager last season he did nothing. He’s got the same symptons that Owen had after his injury. He wont do anything for you and Chelsea (plastic fans) need to stop thinking they are special.

        Div? Based on what? Facts? The fact that he’s done nothing at a club level for 3 years. He was at you for 6 months with a quality team around him and scored how many goals? erm 1 was it! Get a grip, calling me a div your the one supporting a plastic team. Idiot

          Ladies! Relax . . We have a Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi in the making! In the form of Luis Suarez! If Torres manages 10 goals He will hit 30+ Suarez is superior! & at LFC invincibility is not very far!

    Torres has been tipped to shine for the past 3 years then failed to do so. In six months Torres only scored 1 goal and that was a mud assisted fluke. He will probably score a few goals of course but we will never be the Torres of old. Your Mobster has bought you a £50m pup. I’m sure we’ll see the glory hunting Chelski fans waving their blue plastic flags, their blue version of Liverpools El Nino banner and singing the Kop’s Torres song again this season. Ha, pathetic!!!
    P.S. Don’t believe him when he kisses the badge.

      To true Andy, plastic fans supporting an old unit. Be lucky that Man City have passed them as the most hated team because they can crawl under that rock all their glory hunting fans came out of.

    Farrel!!! or whatever your name is,you are not God and can never decides who succeed or not..agreed everything all went wrong last season but this is a new dawn,remember that every thing is possible if only you believe in yourself..and that is shown in pre-season with him.

      Are you serious? Where are you from? Did I call myself God? Im basing my arguments on solid fact. Every year for the past three seasons he’s come out and said Im ready to be the best and every year he’s failed. At a club level he’s lost it, 6 months he was at you’s and he scored how many goals? 1! Go back to your rock as a glory supporter and leave the rest of us to judge football correctly.

    Torres has lost it in my opinion. I reckon this time next year Chelsea will off load him for a fraction what they paid for him.
    He will be the biggest flop, bigger than Schev.

    Ha! Torres is no longer world class. He was for a fleeting moment with LFC but lost it. He can’t even score a goal against an under 23, Malaysian Olympic team. He had better get used to spending the 2nd half sat on his arse again this season!
