- f:-k!..look! Its a pumpkin..
Makes sense.im going to stick my neck out here, having watched him im going to make a bold prediction.
at the start of the season we saw torres in a number of positions , people assume he will be our winger, left or right in the future, because ,well hes a winger, but is he. we also saw him up front, pep has obviously seen something in the lad, something i don't think is so obvious to the untrained eye, playing new players on the wing gives them time to learn the system pep uses and grow their tactical knowledge,
weve seen it with foden, out on the wing if they fuck up their positioning they dont cause too much damage, in the centre lose the ball there and we can be countered a lot easier, he was critical of foden in the first half of the Liverpool game saying he was out of position and making things harder for us, people took this as a way of keeping his feet on the ground, but it wasnt, foden had fucked up his positioning and we had a lot of problems controlling liverpool in the first half.
anyway on to torres, i think we will see him more and more upfront in the middle, and i personally feel we wont buy a typical forward and keep sergio for another season with torres coming more and more into he team as he learns the false nine position,or maybe we get messi and sergio leaves, im not in the know or claim to have a clue what peps take is on it, just a gut feeling.
he will be our "star" striker, a striker who interchanges with the wingers and the attacking midfielders similar to how gabby jesus is playing, imo jesus and torres will be our two forwards.
