To say Fernando Torres has struggled at Chelsea isn't completely fair. To be comprehensive, you have to admit injuries and Didier Drogba set his Chelsea career back. With the No. 9 position more open since the vacuum of Drogba left Stamford Bridge in 2012, Torres has played serviceably—scoring 23 goals in 63 games last season.
Will he ever live up to his £50 million price tag? Unfortunately, no, but he's not been tasked to world-beat by Jose Mourinho—the Blues' midfield is more than capable of that.
Torres is on the pitch to be a conduit and an opportunist (see Manchester City goal), and for the most part, the Spaniard has done well.
Can we talk about Torres' trophy cabinet for a minute?
For all the lambasting he's taken recently, over the past seven years El Nino has won: The 2010 World Cup, Euro 2008 and 2012 (scoring in both finals), the 2012 FA Cup, the 2012 Champions League and the 2013 Europa League.
Add in the 2012 Euro Golden Boot and the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup Golden Shoe, with an assortment of other honours, and you begin to wonder—where does he keep all of this hardware?
Does it have it's own room in his mansion? Do you give them to your parents? At what point do you start using medals as coasters because you have so many? Has Arsene Wenger tried to break inside Torres' London flat and steal a few?
Anyway, it's incredible the collection Torres has accumulated. If Chelsea win the Premier League come May, and Spain win the 2014 World Cup (provided El Nino makes the squad), there could be more yet.
It's simply amazing.
