Fernando Torres set the Premier League alight in his first season with Liverpool in 2007-08. He battled injuries the next season but still was a part of some fantastic matches that season for the Reds.
Then it all fell apart.
The 2009-2010 season was miserable, and Torres again battled injuries, but he stuck around the next year and said he was committed. He said he loved the club and the fans, and he wanted to win trophies with Liverpool.
Then, in January of 2011, Chelsea came calling. Torres forced through a transfer to Stamford Bridge in he last hours of the transfer window, which is never cool.
Liverpool legend John Aldridge called the Spaniard out for being "fraudulent" with the Liverpool fans, and he was right.
Liverpool fans defended his poor form all through the first half of the season, and Torres just jumped ship. The fans also didn't appreciate Torres' glowing comments about Chelsea in comparison to Liverpool.
But in his defense, Torres may have just come to Merseyside at the wrong time. The owners handicapped the club during his three years, and Torres just wasn't willing to ride out the renaissance under Kenny Dalglish and Fenway sports Group.
Now, Liverpool fans are plenty happy with Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll, so this could turn out all for the best, but Torres certainly ensured that his Anfield career wouldn't turn out the way most of us had hoped.
