January Transfer Rumors: Fernando Torres Of Liverpool To Chelsea...But Why Not Tottenham Hotspur?

As Spurs fans, we've been pretty spoiled today...after we got our clocks cleaned by Fulham. We've been linked to Sergio Aguero, Fernando Llorente, Giuseppe Rossi, and Andy Carroll. I would be thrilled to have any of these players join Tottenham Hotspur, but these rumors aren't enough to satisfy me. No, I want the man who has been linked to Chelsea, Liverpool's Fernando Torres.

Okay, forget for a second that we really shouldn't be dropping £50m on anyone if we want a new stadium. Especially since Daniel Levy is apparently willing to drop £40m on Aguero. Let's forget for a second that it would only be a minor upgrade in the short term, and a possible downgrade in the long term. Let's forget that Torres has already played over 400 professional games and looks really sluggish. 

Yes, let's forget all of this. Why? BECAUSE I WANT A WORLD RENOWN SUPERSTAR!


Do any of you feel like this on a regular basis? I don't regret supporting Spurs in the least, but like two days a year I think "I want MY team to have a giant name!"

Of course, Welsh Jesus could very well be that guy in a year or two, but I'm a small, petulant child and I want Fernando Torres NOW!
