Fernando Torres was an absolute phenomenon. Fast, strong, good in the air, gifted with an expert technique, cool as fuck in front of goal. He was a legend in the making. The first Liverpool player since Robbie Fowler to score more than twenty league goals in one season. The first player since Roger Hunt to score eight successive league goals at Anfield. The first player since Jack Balmer to score successive hat-tricks at Anfield. The fastest Liverpool player ever to score fifty league goals. A player held in such esteem he was supported more vocally by The Kop than two local legends in Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard. He was simply amazing. Then he signed for Chelsea.
