… I figured I’d enjoy this video highlight over and over and over again from the comfort of this very blog. No, I’m not talking about the comprehensive dismantling of Aston Villa at the Bridge (something that could augur their decline in the race for fourth, perhaps?), but Fernando Torres’ first goal against Sunderland yesterday. Though the Spaniard is modest about his effort (“I think I’ve scored better goals”), it was a sublime score built from nothing. A chase, a shimmy, an improbable shot.
Though the 3-0 win might have come too late for a real push for that final Champions League spot (four points back from Spurs, who have a game in hand, with Citeh a point back of Liverpool in 6th with 2 games in hand), it’s a timely reminder of just what this team can do if they decide to make an effort.
Goal after the jump.
