It happened to Owen, and now Torres. Early retirement b4 age 40

These fucking unfaithful idiots that Liverpool gave them fame & fortune.

Now next on the list that will have the same fate are Suarez & Coutinho. Just wait & see..............

Torres transfer macam 1 side story makes him become scapegoat. Only the parties involved know the true reason behind it.

Why crucify our ex players?
Torres gave us his best years, we didn't win anything was not down to his fault. 50mil pounds at that time was mega bucks and could only come from Roman, for a player clearly over his peak. Torres won the league, CL and EL because of a better team (Chelsea), not that he contributed much.
In fact, I would say that we did not play Torres the right way, and used him way much more than how his body could take. That's why he lasted only a couple of good seasons with us.
Players like Gerrard, Carra, Scholes, Totti etc are pretty much non existent these days. With the money going around and agents needing transfers to get their commissions, they are the exception rather than the norm. It is unfair to ask players to sacrifice their earning power because of loyalty. They only have a playing career of 10-15 years on average.

New owner, new manager and the newly appointed DOF told that the club is going to a rebuilding process by bringing in more youngsters. Then Chelsea came with silverwares promise and significant pay rise. It's easy choice for him. Heck, few months under Uncle Woy is enough to make him make up his mind. Too bad we don't have the privilege to watch him and Suarez combo. That'll be eyegasm.

Exactly. spending time under Woy plus Hicks and Gillett would make almost anyone want to leave, hard to blame him and Mascherano. He gave us the best years of his career and even 50 million as a parting gift, our own fault for wasting it.

Yes. If we had moved from David Moores to Fenway, kept Benitez for a couple more seasons before BR, who knows what we could've achieved.
Kesimpulannya, G&H&Roy was a very bad era and thank God it is over..

Barca started courting Salah now. Samuel Eto'o their former player start the ball rolling. Soon, their current players will pour praises and superlatives. Typical Barca style.

This.

Not to mention the only reason why Owl didn't get the sack right away was because FSG was looking at Fulham back then as the model (which is something like today's Tottenham) for "progression".

FSG learnt their lesson very well, and they now know they have to buy the right people for the right job, not looking everything as numbers and data and say "the sabermetric / moneyball will work itself out".

Some people get their fuel from negativity.

Torres moving was indeed a sad day and what more to a rival at that time. But if you were in a sinking ship, you'd jumped too. He was playing under Roy and a team of mediocre players bar Gerrard, Carra and Reina. Everyone from the amazing 08/09 team left. He was also declining in terms of performance which was apparent in his 4 years with Chelsea scoring only one-third of what he did for Liverpool.

By the way, can't consider 1 club for Gerrard since he played for LA Galaxy.
