The Last 24 Hours
Liverpool signing Suarez was great news for Liverpool supporters yesterday but typical of our season was after the great news of the new signing came massive disappointment with the news that Torres had handed in a written transfer request to the club. With the obvious interest from Chelsea this felt like a dagger in the heart to me as I was at work last night and heard the news around midnight last night. The thought of one of our main players going to one of our fiercest rivals is unthinkable and worrying, I thought the Kenny Dalglish factor would have settled Torres down as he has looked unhappy throughout the season but since Dalglish came back there has been a big difference in his attitude, so his interest in wanting to leave surprises and saddens me. If we lose him we will probably be worse off than a week ago, ok we have Suarez but we have to see if he can do the business in a different country, whereas with Torres we know he can, and once again we are back to having one recognised striker with no time now to bring in another with the transfer window close to shutting. I just don't think we can keep him now as he has stated that he wants away and all I think we can do now is hold out for as much money as we can for him. Torres was loved at this club but this last 24 hours I'm sure he has lost a lot of friends especially wanting to go to a rival club, if he wanted to back to Spain then I think the supporters would understand but this move is unnacceptabe in my and many supporters eyes. Whatever happens over the next couple of days Liverpool will move on and continue to be supported by the greatest supporters in the world.
