I almost fell off my chair this morning when I read that Chelsea were planning to make a £50m bid for Fernando Torres. But the report was quick to say that Torres would not even consider a move to Chelsea and he wants to stay at Anfield and become a legend. With the kind of season Fernando had, it is no surprise that everyone wishes they had him in their team, but hard luck to those other teams; Torres is ours and will be for a long time to come.

If Torres can put in another 30 goals next season I think we will be very close to the title as I am sure the likes of Babel will contribute much more next term than they did last season. And with Stevie G getting a good rest this summer, we should come out firing next season.

Chelsea may have all the money in the world but they will not be able to prize away Torres. Torres revels in the Anfield atmosphere and I am sure that is a major reason he will not leave. There are just some things money can’t buy i.e. The Anfield atmosphere and to have the Kop chanting:

His armband proved he was a red,
Torres Torres!
‘You’ll never walk alone’ it said,
Torres Torres!
We bought the lad from sunny Spain,
He gets the ball and scores again,
Fernando Torres, Liverpool’s number 9!
