    Well yes, he pretty much wasn't marked but it was still a stunning goal.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    The first goal Torres scored for Liverpool (ironically against Chelsea) was a perfect example of his powers when he was at the top of his game. Blistering pace, tough to shake off the ball and a sublime touch and finish.

    I admit that he was the best player I'd seen turn out for us since Robbie Fowler.

    The player that turns out for Chelsea has lost the pace, but also the determination to shake off a defender. His lack of confidence has clearly affected his first touch which was so vital to getting him in a goal-scoring position.

    If he didn't play for Chelsea I'd be cheering him on, hoping he can turn his fortunes around.

    As it is, I celebrate every fruitless game he plays against us.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    'Newcastle wants Bong' is a great headline.

    Would be better if it was 'Pardew wants Bong' though.

    My 'Happy Birthday' message to Frimpong on Facebook appears to have been removed from his wall.

    "Happy Birthday. I was going to send you a card but they were all out of red ones. Will yellow do?"

    :-) Villa are set to be the but of most jokes for the rest of the season until we either go down or somehow stave off relegation, so I'm going to have to put up with that.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I'd pick Spurs over Arsenal. Wengr is senile and going nowhere, AVB is young and has connections across the Iberian peninsula. Not difficult.

    End of Ade? From what I've seen this year he's been pretty awful.

    Llorente, completely frozen out after trying to force a move.

    Said it before. The only thing wrong with Arsenal is their egalitarian wage structure. Well that and Wenger's disdain for defending.

    Arsenal's wage structure has never made sense. In the name of supposedly fostering team spirit (I don't see it to be honest, Arsenal have been a fragile team since Vieira and Gilberto left), it has meant that the top players cannot be paid what they are worth compared to their counterparts in the other top 4 teams. It also means that squad players are harder to move on.

    With a normal wage structure Arsenal would have been able keep their best players.

    It's difficult to challenge if you keep losing your your best players every year and even more difficult when you lose them to a direct competitor.

    Do Arsenal pay youngsters much money, considering they have quite a lot of them from round the world on the books, that might not allow them a lot of high earners.

    Not on loan anymore, but City in way do still pay a good amount of his wages, but it had to be a lump sum up front as it's illegal to pay the wages of another team's player.

    He'll still be one of the highest earners at Spurs I'd imagine

    Quite a bit, but we're slowly getting rid of young players we gave large salaries to in order to try and retain them. On the whole its pretty equal with a few top earners. What has cost us is a) players like Denilson, Diaby and Bendtner failing to deliver, b) weak commercial deals that were necessary at the time of the move and c) other buys that were expensive that haven't worked out.

    I don't know about youngsters specifically, but for most of the last 10 years they were third in annual wage bill ahead of my team Liverpool in 4th, until the 08/09 season when Liverpool went mad and put 17m on the annual wage bill to pip Arsenal to third highest by 3 million.
