For the life of me, I cannot understand why Fernando Torres has only played eight minutes of first team football in the last two games. You could understand Didier Drogba starting the game against Liverpool if he was playing well, on form and scoring goals. This was his first game back!.

I guess AVB wanted to use the a different physical approach with using Drogba there to rough up the Liverpool defenders but it never happened. I personally was delighted to see Torres warming up with around 25-30 minutes left but as time went on, couldn't understand why he wasn't brought on.

This was one of our biggest games and we had already knew that City, United and Arsenal had all won before we played. I couldn't get my head round it to be honest.

So, next up was Leverkusen and another big game. A win or a draw would have suited us. A win would have wrapped up the group for us but again he was left out of the team and stuck on the bench.

It became obvious again even though he had scored, that Drogba wasn't as effective as we wanted him to be and at 1-1 I would have wanted AVB to make changes to take the game to opposition and try and get the win. This would mean bring Torres on but it still didn't happen and we lost the game!.

For the past couple of days, I have been sitting here trying to work out what the situation is with Torres these days. Is his lack of confidence playing a part in AVB's decision not to start him? If that's the case then surely that would apply to most of the players?. Is it that Torres and AVB have "fallen out"? or do you think AVB is getting pressured by "upstairs" to play Drogba?

I can't make any sense of it so I am asking you the Chelsea fan (or football fan) reading this to give your view on why you think he hasn't played and if you think he will start tomorrow?
