Torres is not solely to blame for his troubles.
Distinct lack of service from midfield is shocking. Torres work rate has been excellent this season. Far too often he can been seen making all the right runs and getting in the right places, but the pass never arrives.
The wonderous Sturridge, who seems immune from critisism, is way too selfish for a wide role and not a team player. Kalou often has trouble controlling the ball, let alone supply an end product. Malouda at times is like a stagnant pond, no life what so ever, more side ways passes than David Batty!
Many of Chelsea's problems were evident last season, time to take off the blinkers and look at the bigger picture.
Agree with you Moose, even Messi would struggle to get more than 20 goals with the service our midfield supplies. The amount of time we take to get the ball from defence to attack is recorded on a calendar not a stopwatch (I will exempt Mata from any criticism).

Apparentlly there is no service so how come Drogba scores more Goals then Torres ?
Basically Torres is a china doll that you need Alter your entire team to play counter-attacking foorball to accomodate Torres.. Even then Drogba plays better when gets the chance
