    Nicknames stick Gerry.
    I left school over 25 years ago but whenever I bump in to one of me old class mates, they still call me 'prick', 'dickhead', c*nt,
    'gobshite'.
    I had lots of nicknames.

    In fairness he took Derby to 6th last season from the lowly position of........ 6th the season before. Can only see it going tits up, same as Utd.

    We certainly got the best out of him and for that I will be forever grateful.
    Thank you Rafa!

    Will never forget his debut goal, nowhere near his most special but knew we had a world class finisher on our hands from that moment.

    Also had one of the best songs ever made in my opinion.... BOUNCE

    First goal did it for me too. Showed it to Ben Haim then shifted it in a blink and burns him before finishing perfectly. Beautiful

    Torres was world class in his time with us in my opinion! His goal against Newcastle when he linked up with Gerrard is one of my personal favourites

    He is the one player I regret not seeing live on my trips over through the years

    Another personal favourite was when he sent poor Cannavaro for the echo and then slotted passed Casillas. World Class.

    Personal favorite was the one against Blackburn, half volley from a silly angle in the box. Van Basten-esque.
    Thing that always struck me about Torres was his accuracy. The number of his goals that were scored into the very corner of the goal, or into the side netting was amazing.
    Still sticks in my craw somewhat that we never got to see him and Suarez (granted we didnt realise at the time just HOW good Suarez was going to be) as a front two. Again I suppose Torres was waning when we got 50m for him, but I always wondered if he HAD stuck around, would playing with Suarez have reignited him.

    Relegation candidates now

    Should have been falling over themselves to get him to stay

    Gets them promoted ( worth £150m +)

    Keeps them in the premier league since been promoted


    All he wants is funds to improve the club , so what’s best for them


    Net spend -£11.2m , fucking championship mentality



    How thick can Ashley be ??

    La liga winner twice
    Europa cup winner twice
    Champions league winner
    Fa cup winner
    Coppa Italia winner
