Chelsea must change their tune for on-song Torres

Published Add your comment

Chelsea fans favourite Pat Nevin has called for the Blues to change their tune in order to get the best out of £50million signing Fernando Torres.

As a silky-skilled wide-man himself, the former Scotland international was used to entertaining the Stamford Bridge crowd during his playing days in the eighties.

Now, as a spectator, Nevin is growing frustrated at Torres’ stuttering start to his Chelsea career but believes the 26-year-old Spaniard’s lack of form is a problem that lies within the club itself.

"Chelsea have to change," he said. "They have been a battering ram as a team for some time now.


"They knock the ball up to Didier Drogba and see what happens. You can’t do that with Torres."

Having failed to score in his fifth successive Blues appearance on Monday night in the 3-1 victory over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road, Torres has come into criticism from some quarters.

But Nevin would rather focus on what other players and the Chelsea team as a collective can do to support their new striker.

"Chelsea need someone with a bit of vision to set him free; someone who can deliver the ball to him in the way he needs.

"Frank Lampard is capable of it, but it is not really his type of game. It could be that they have to buy someone in the summer to solve the problem."
