Modric For Torres Swap

Image for Modric For Torres Swap

Good morning. 

I like Danny Kelly. I think the watershed moment that turned my head was THIS. And this morning he demonstrated his unerring ability to do his job well rather than just regurgitate all the usual…

Would you swap Torres for Modders? 

The addition of Adebayor I am convinced will ultimately proved to be an inspired move. Is he the world’s greatest striker? Well perhaps not as we speak. But he’s a player that evidently thrives on being given a new lease of life. Imagine a scenario were another household name were to join him.

Torres against the immediate and perhaps somewhat harrowing backdrop of his Liverpool form had a good spell one season and then went right off the boil. His £50M price tag requires not a pinch of salt but the complete suspension of ones disbelief. The figure reflected the buyers ambition, not the market value of the product.

Modric we know and indeed must accept is – barring an act of God – or a treble winning season, not stopping long. And so of all the guff that the transfer rumour mongers generate, this concoction might not have legs, but it’s difficult to deny it has a pretty face. 

I know some reading this will be unthinkingly dismissive. Buy I tell you this. If you want to predict the future just think up that which is seemingly crazy today. Garages selling ice cold beers, Adebayor and Gallas in Tottenham shirts…

    1st!! Yeah Baby!!

    I can’t see this happening but stranger things have happened at sea!!

    Give Torres his confidence back and he’ll be scoring for fun. Unfortunately I think he’ll go to Spain or Italy to get that confidence back!!

    You are quite correct though Harold, Modders will not be stopping with us long, new contract or no new contract.

    • DAVSPURS says:

      Torres left his confidants at Liverpool when they burnt him out finishing second. The only two places he will get it back is Utd and City who are playing anything you can do we can do better football . I live 24 Miles from Manchester and 12 from Liverpool and you can smell the sweaty Tempo from both Citys. The fact Newcastle who sold there best players are fourth should tell its not real sweat.?

  • james joyce says:

    yeah, we can afford his 250k wages. yawn.

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      A certain sort of person responds online with the word ‘yawn’. that sort of person is a feckwit.

      • gilbo says:

        unless the article is about yawning, in which case it would be an acceptable thing to respond with.

      • james joyce says:

        then we are both feckwits. however, my yawn was atleast based in reality. another one of your poorly thought out speculations. tell me how we could ever afford torres? i’m sure you knew the reality, you’re just a whore for the hits. shame, i don’t remember you being like that a few years back.

        • Harry Hotspur says:


          You are either a big fat liar/have suffered a stroke.
          I love hits. But the content has always been key. Always.
          I’ve turned down 2 deals that required me to publish ‘X” articles pwk.
          So what you are getting is genuine bollocks.
          Snide is welcome on here, but it needs to have merit.

        • Plod says:

          Well not exactly this was bandied about elsewhere a week or so ago.

    • John White says:

      You think this is a problem. You’ll see.
      U’l See
      See what I did there?

    • essexian76 says:

      I take it Finnegan’s not awake?

  • essexian76 says:

    No way, and my reasoning is simple. Modric is a player who is ‘on the up’ in terms of ability. He could walk into Chelsea tomorrow and pretty much hit the ground running. Could you say the same for Torres? You could be throwing away 40million on a huge gamble and only getting a busted flush. Secondly I think Modric will be offered a new deal and will sign it anyway, only this time there will be buy out clause in it.

    • DAVSPURS says:

      Who would you fear coming of the bench Torres who still can trap a ball or Pav Vodka, who has a touch like a German Midwife.

      • essexian76 says:

        Well Dav, it was about the hypothetical swapping of Modric for Torres. Two different positions and two very different players, so if you’re putting Pav into the equation as well, then I’m allowed to throw in one of my choice and that would be Redknapp for Abramovic, just as daft but one can dream…on probably…drink?

  • adebayor de man says:

    Fak em. Who needs modders when we’ve got adddeeebbbaayyyooooo!!
