For instance, take Liverpool's recent match against Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough could have easily beaten a defeated Liverpool side, but Torres once again saved the day. With 19 minutes remaining in the game, Torres received the ball and, after a brief stumble, dribbled straight to goal. He hit a majestic 25-yard belter that saved Liverpool.
In their match against Chelsea, Liverpool relied on Torres to score a goal to hold last year's Champion's to a draw. His speed and precision were put to clinical use to slot one in Chelsea's goal.
Torres, Torres, Torres....
Without this Spaniard, Liverpool and Steven Gerrard would be kicking themselves for not qualifying for Europe next season. In fact, after Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo, I would argue that Torres is the most important player for an English team. A good goal is one that is nice and important, to paraphrase Eric Cantona.
Enough said. Torres has scored some fantastic goals in recent games and one of the Reds' best buys.
