Basically this comes down to IMO Carroll not being worth what they paid to pry him out of Newcastle. He is a nice player but nowhere near roughly 75% of Torres. If they got both those guys for roughly what they sold Torres for this works more for me.
And still the idea of Torres playing off Drogba is scary.
Babel's not really a winger. There's not a doubt in my mind that Liverpool have improved. They'll finally be a threat from set pieces with Carroll (who's scored more with worse supporting personnel than Torres this season), and Suarez's goal-scoring record has been ridiculous at Ajax (81 goals in 110 games).
We'll see how Torres does at Chelsea. It'll be interesting.
