We'll see how Torres does at Chelsea. It'll be interesting.
Babel isn't a winger? That is all he is, a winger trained at the ultimate school for wingers. Nobody sticks with playing with 2 out and out wingers like Ajax. I like Suarez a ton and Ajax is going to miss him a lot and again I like Carroll but he is overpriced by quite a bit simply because he is English.
They are now saying the Torres fee is 50 mil pounds instead of 45 so with the Babel fee of around 6 that makes it about a wash but I still feel they overpaid by a lot for an English guy simply because he is English. Heck I bet they could have had Dzeko and used what they saved there to get Adam out of Blackpool.
