50 million ...

Doesn't get you much nowadays...

Not when one striker leaves and scores 2 goals in the same space of time. Daniel Sturridge completed a loan move to Bolton Wanderers on the same day that Fernando Torres left Liverpool in a deal reported to be worth £50 million.

Torres made his full debut yesterday in a Chelsea forward line that also consisted of Drogba and Anelka. They ended the game losing 1-0 to Torres's former club, Liverpool. Whilst a day earlier Daniel Sturridge started his first full game for Bolton after featuring as a substitute the match before. Against Wolves, Sturridge came on and score a very late winner for the trotters securing a much needed 3 points. The following match against Tottenham Hotspur he scored another goal making his goal tally for his new club 2 in 2 games.

This was Torres's first game I admit, but watching him with his new team mates was like watching him with his old. Lacklustre, tired, and generally not putting a lot of effort in. We will have to see how he performs in his next few games but as of yet, I think Chelsea would have been better off keeping Sturridge.


  1. I always found that these guys were overpaid for what they do.. Sure not everyone can do it, but these exhorbitant fees are ridiculous.

  2. lotta pressure on Torres now, haha

  3. Great post! I try to be aware of the interests of other countries, especially given the view of americans. So this will be excellent! Thanks for the info. Keep it up.
