Trevor Francis has been speaking on talkSport about our new signing and has had some harsh words to say about Chelsea's number nine. In addition to his "thoughts" on Torres his comments have got me thinking and I will ask the same questions of you afterwards. Here's what he had to say:
“If you want consistency, you won’t find it from Torres, He plays one in every 10. I don’t doubt his ability but his decision making when in possession of the ball is dreadful.

At times, he does things when you think he’s a top player. Then he does things when he looks like an amateur. If you look at the transfer fee, I think £50m is a huge gamble.

We used the excuse in the World Cup that he was not fully fit. And we’ve continued to use that this season. No-one doubts his ability but when you go to bed on Friday night as a manager you need to know what you’re going to get from your best players the following day, and I look at Torres and I wouldn’t have a clue what you’re going to get from him.

Time will prove if he will be a success but it’s caused confusion, and I’d put Drogba and Anelka in front of Torres. I’d be concerned if I was a Chelsea supporter.”

My instant reaction to his comments was "look at his goalscoring record in the Premier League". I have to say Francis' comments are harsh to say the least and for me this guy can stick his comments where the sun doesn't shine!.

I for one am not concerned about Torres at all as a Chelsea player. The fee paid by Roman was for his goals and what he can do in front of goal and I personally believe he will have more chances to score in the Chelsea side that he has had playing for Liverpool. It's just how we get our forward line sorted out that is the priority at the moment. (Check out my post yesterday and add your opinions).

Francis also stated that he would have Anelka and Drogba ahead of him which maybe is a fair comment. But, why not play Drogba and Torres together if you had the chance to?.

I am sure Torres will come good and will fire us to glory. I really honestly believe he will and for Francis to say at times he looks like an amateur is ridiculous. You just need to watch his movement without the ball, his instincts and knowing the quality he has and WILL bring to Chelsea, Francis sorry mate, you are way off!.

I can't wait for Fernando Torres to prove you and all the doubters wrong, but what do you think?.

Do you agree with Francis about Torres?
