Think it’s often forgotten that opposition coaches see what we see and when we kept scoring that same goal they changed tactics to counter it and close that space down. It was even highlighted on match of the day once.leroy was at his best in the centurion season when he had space to use his pace in behind where Kev can find him with them special passes? Since then teams sit so much deeper the space isn’t there and Torres seems better dribbling in tighter areas than Leroy was? Hopefully that will help against the wall of players we face every week!
The trick is using that to our advantage I don ‘t think we did last season, as you say Torres should help think myself a real false 9 would help against the really deep teams, and I mean somebody that really understands the false 9 and can finish not just playing a midfielder there. Like Messi, but don’t have any names to offer as an alternative to Messi, maybe the club do.
