    Think people are overreacting a little wrt the effect this will have on Torres. Like WOE IS US HE WILL LOSE HIS FORM IF HE MISSES THREE GAMES. Er, no.

    On a side note, does anyone else think Meireles looks like an absolute tool with a mohican?
    Everyone looks a tool with a mohican.

    Indeed. And he'll be able to play this Wednesday's champions league fixture against Valencia. He'll be alright.

    That was well taken. Though a bit of poor defence from Swansea's point of view.

    Great to see Didier on the score board too! Merieles is awesome. Mata is brilliant. Torres is just about back! Didier is scoring again. Anelka had a real good game too! Still angry with the sending off though ><

    If it is a 3 match ban.. Then Torres will miss the Bolton, Everton and QPR game. Tbh, after seeing Everton play against Man City today, would of really wanted him to play, but Anelka and Drogba should do alright if they get good service.

    A very good performance for everyone (except Bosingwa -.-).

    Torres played well while he was one; a rash challenge though. Poor lad.

    Drogba scores once and "is scoring again". Hmm. Still, a nice result, just wish we could have kept the clean sheet.

    I think Torres is coming back to form, too bad about the red but now he can show why he costed 50 million. You don't lose quality overnight for sure.

    Well I didn't mean it that way. I just meant that he's also scored along with our other strikers and its nice to see that.

    McEachran blows Wilshere out if the water, he just hasn't received the same amount of attention because we aren't as desperate as Arsenal in terms of players so they've had no choice but to stick him in every game.

    Exactly, We have players like meireles, romeu, essien, mikel and lampard, hard for him to get in the team. I think that he's just as good, Would like to see him play against arsenal and see how they pit against each other, if they can compare wilshere to thiago who is better than wilshere, then mceachran is just as good as them too. He'll be a first team starter by the end of next season, our midfield just has too much depth so it's hard for him to get in besides rotation.

    Better not to throw him in too early though and mess up his development with delusions of grandeur. A lot of pressure is placed on young players when they are exposed too early and it happens more often at Arsenal, where the focus is placed heavily upon youngsters to step up to the plate, that they fail to meet their expectations.

    You're right though, think about players like alex, we bought him when he was like 20, we only started playing him regularly 2 seasons ago. I think by the time lampards finished, he'll be like what man united did with anderson and nani, getting them to be integrated over time until they get close to the levels of the people they replaced i.e (scholes and ronaldo) not saying they're as good as them but you get the drift.
    Arsenal are on one end where they get young players and put them in straight away, while liverpool and city are on the other end where they buy players to be put straight into the first team. Chelsea used to be more like that but we're now like man united in that sense.

    'Having been bought by the Premier League club Chelsea in 2004, he was loaned to Dutch team PSV and he won 3 Eredivisie titles with them. Alex finally joined the Chelsea squad in the summer of 2007 after three years on loan to PSV in the Netherlands.' From wikipedia.
    Alex was 24-25 when we stopped loaning him out.
