The still very-much-controversial 50 million pound-striker Fernando Torres had hoped to redeem himself to Chelsea fans by helping his team triumph against their strongest rivals, Manchester United. Alas, fate had a different script in mind and what transpired instead was a miss that would be played and replayed over and over again until the next football weekend:
To his credit, he did score Chelsea’s lone goal. However, knowing the harsh reality in football, it’s his spectacular miss that will surely be all over the news, forums and social networking sites for the rest of the week.
Chin up, hombre. At the very least you’ll earn a spot in the Premier League 2011-2012 Season Highlights DVD under the “Incredible Misses” category. Until then, pray that Ashley Cole or another teammate cooks up another controversy to deflect the limelight from you.
