Picture of the Day: Fernando Torres

On the last day of the January Transfer Window, Chelsea shocked everyone by purchasing Fernando Torres from Liverpool for 50 million pounds. Being one of the most hyped up transfers, Torres' first 2 months at the Bridge were... how do I say it.... EPICCC FAAILLLL. Maybe that's an exaggeration. But still. The images of Roman Abramovich being hugely dissatisfied when watching Chelsea's matches were pretty hilarious to me. On the other hand, Liverpool got the great end of the deal. With the money they earned, they purchased Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll, with the latter being priced at a hugely inflated 35 million pounds. Despite Nando's poor performances, Chelsea's purchase of him and David Luiz revitalized the Blues, and gave them the drive to recover from their slump and finish their season in 2nd place. So I don't really know what to think about it. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise. A very bad, out of form, lazy disguise.
