To prepare the English soccer fans. This weekend, specifically on Sunday at 17.00 (at Canal +) a trick of the calendar would have it at Stamford Bridge to see Chelsea and Liverpool faces. Or what is the same, the debut of Fernando Torres with the blue elastic after his multimillion transfer so many blisters were raised in the city of The Beatles. While one sector of the hobby does not condone breaking fault of their star player, some wonder how it can be and taking into account the money you have left in cash and dozens of goals he has signed with the Reds. Anyway, these things one the usually appreciate over time. And this, sure, reconciles the child with his former supporters.
The 58 million who joined Liverpool have been, why deny it, well spent. A priori, has signed a striker tandem with much more present and future that can make the delights of Anfield. The hiring of Luis Suarez (24 years) for EUR 26.5 million accelerated the sale of Torres. Although together they could form a front of the most feared of the Premier, Liverpool kept an ace up his sleeve. It came at the last gasp of the transfer market when it completed the arrival of another crack in the making, with a curriculum stained by their indiscipline but little that will mature forgetting his detractors. Andy Carroll (22 years) cost a whopping 40 million, a price perhaps too high, but the emergency caused by an entity that has invested 66.5 million euros to forget Fernando.
Luis Suarez Ajax gets a longer he was small. On several occasions the person signing above showed weakness for one of those players with a goal into a vein. Its market value is very similar to that Liverpool have paid, as the Uruguayan striker joins youth, talent and, above all, goals. In the Eredivisie has signed 111 goals in 158 games, with last season's best in Holland . Top scorer with 35 goals in 33 games and strange that, with World through , was not transferred to one of the many brides who wanted him. In fact, the stands of Anfield you know the wisdom of the Uruguayan front of goal, since its official opening with the red spring on Monday against Stoke City, took 16 minutes to score and seal the victory for his team (2 -0).
The other player that changes of scenery to call at Liverpool is Andy Carroll. In his favor is his age against him, the various problems of indiscipline which has gotten in his short but meteoric career. In 2006 he became the youngest player to debut with Newcastle over its history, with 17 years and 300 days, but perhaps lacks experience in the top flight of English football this season and its ten peas. This is a 1.91 meter tall striker who can come to football practice pearls Kenny Dalglish. Last year he became the great architect of the rise of Magpies to scoring 17 goals and has all the numbers to be the offensive reference to the England team in the not too distant future. Without going any further, Fabio Capello has already used as a '9 'on occasion. Precisely the Gateshead-born striker will be the heir to the elastic de Torres. If pressure does not bother him, kept his cool and transform the performance accolades, Anfield will front for many years. Or rather, in the plural: front.
Thus begins a new stage in the whole network, seven and two points of the Europa League. In one Spanish-trained Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is only Pepe Reina between the sticks and Dani Pacheco halfway between the first and second team. The post-Torres has comenzadoylit has to win. I repeat on Sunday?
