Frecklewatch: Fernando Torres Transfer Talk

We can’t tell if we’ve accepted reality for what it is, or if we’re just sick of having Ronaldo-like flashbacks, but our Fernando Torres transfer anxiety is beginning to move from denial to acceptance.
Well before we transitioned to stage 5, we spent much of our Sunday evening debating heartaches: which is/will be/was the bigger loss to ‘Pool’s heart, Xabi Alonso or Fernando Torres? Furthermore, should either suffer criticism for where they want to play football?
Big transfer news brings up much to discuss – so, for the legions of Kickettes from a rainbow variety of colours, how do you feel about Fer’s adorable freckles and masterful bitchface now? If you’re of a team that has been forced to wallow in your painful-player-moves sorrows, do you have any comforting words or coping mechanisms to share with the LFC-supporting ladies and gents?
Also: £35 million?!
And: Luis Suarez already has his manbag priorities in order. Good lad.
