My point is that if Suarez stays next season and we would not buy 3-4 QUALITY PLAYERS & not headless chicken Then he will absolutely loose interest playing with high intensity. And with FSG budget of 20 MIL I am not sure we can buy quantity with quality. Also, if we can manage to get 80 MIL with selling of Surez, AC, Skirtel, Spearing then we can definitely buy 5-6 quality players and IMO 4 very good players are better than a world class player.
You saw this against West Ham. Their tactic was to keep Suarez in control and they did resulting a draw. If we have 4-5 very good players at a time on the pitch like Tottenham then we can rely on the team and not the individuals. The reason for our inconsistency is because we rely too much on Suarez. If he has a bad day then 9 out of 10 times we can not get 3 points. Consistency comes only when we do not rely on 1 or 2 players to win us game.
For Torres, I definitely fill that he would also love to come where he is loved the most!!! Also, he is still the best finisher IMO. He knows when to hit & when to stop. I think Suarez & DS still have to learn a lot to match his finishing skill. Because of lack of finishing skills, we are having the highest number of shots off-target in PL this seaso which was not the case when Torres was here. Also, his 18 goals this season have come when he is not the first choice later on.
Having Torres, Sturridge, Carroll, Suarez.. gives us a variety upfront. Which is what we need.. if we're predictable then teams can just read us and beat or even just play for the draw. Like West Ham did.
