Fernando Torres got kicked off the park against United, at Old Trafford and Anfield, if you ask any scouser. He didn’t bottle it against United and our defence weren’t too good for him. He simply was cheated out of a good performance.
It’s Sunday, kick back and relax, and check out a couple of videos…
Torres waits until he gets in to the penalty area, then throws himself to the ground, once recognising he won’t beat Rio for strength. Maybe I missed the kick he got…
As Torres rolled around on the deck, “same old scousers, always cheating” was the song of the Old Trafford crowd. Michael Carrick made a good challenge for the ball, but again, as soon as Torres got in the area, he took a dive. He held the back of his hand to his head, wincing in pain, from lack of contact he received.
Poor ol Torres, kicked off the park. But Sky Sports rated him as 5 at Anfield, stating he was “not at the races”, whilst The Guardian gave him a 6 for the match at Old Trafford, stating: Missed only good chance and lucky to avoid second yellow for a theatrical reaction.
