ALL of us would agree that Torres is one special species of a striker. We have not seen him for a few matches and the other strikers also performed well during his absence (the 8-0 fiesta) but against Fulham it was almost a repeat of Birmingham game when the Fulham defenders look as if they are permanently stationed 5 people at the back or the goalie could be the nominee for the best goalkeeper of the league when Niemi managed to make saves after saves....
And then Torres was introduced to tore the stubborn Fulham defenders. And he took the task with such a style. The Fulham manager claimed that Torres mis-hit his kick that `fooled' his 2 defenders and Niemi. Who cares? A goal is a goal and it didn't hit anyone or using hands... it was beautifully collected by Torres from a long clearance by Riena (photo 1), make himself a space between the 2 defenders and BANG! Torres scored.
It was 3am and my fellow LFC fans (who are watching at our respective homes) begun to texting each other. The most repeated word was `LEGA' which in English means : relieve... because surely none of us would want another draw. We need to catch up with the other top 3. And tonight's win is about time!
oh ya... Crouch could have scored. Why can't he take the penalty instead of Gerrard? hmmm....
