    No doubt Torreira dropped off but this was after the WC, moving to a new club and country and playing without a winter break. He was also better as a holding DM, playing nearer the back. Iirc, Emery tinkered with his position/formation which moved him up the pitch and he looked bad when we got countered and a bit lost at times too. He's also young and it's his first season in one of our worst teams in recent years. I'll cut him some slack as he has the ability to do better.

    I feel like he’s primed to make a huge impact this season. For me, the Kante comparison is accurate. He’s more than just a ball winner, he can carry the ball upfield and he often finds himself in decent positions in the box.

    He’s a perfect midfielder for a pressing team. Can win the ball back high up the pitch and has the ability on the ball to make something happen. Hope he gets a run of starts soon.

    Similar to Kante when they moved him up... they didn’t know the role. But they are good players and they only need some matches to adapt

    Can't believe people are comparing Torreira to Elneny aka Denilson Mk.2.

    The stuff Torreira produced in the first half of the season ffs is levels above anything Elneny has ever done ffs. Yes he dropped off in the second half of the season but at no point did he drop below Elneny's level

    He's our best central midfielder in tight spaces , also got the first touch and he nearly always passes forward .

    Torreira is a good passer, actually an underrated passer who is just doing the safe thing currently.

    When he was at Sampdoria, he was often compared to Veratti. Not only because of his stature and combativeness but because of his passing ability. I think like Veratti, he played as a 10 and then got moved back so I think he can go up another level in terms of passing but right now, he’s too safe for my liking. Hopefully he goes up a level.

    Torreira must start today. If Emery plays Xhaka again today I will start to lose faith in him. I just don't see how he is selected so much, its a bit like Wenger playing Özil all the time when he was clearly playing so poorly. I want to see Torreira Willock Cebellos, each one is perfect for a Derby, they will be at Sp**s players every second of the game.

    Stick him in the N0,10 position and let him be the type of No.10 we need. He'll cover more ground tracking back, win turnovers deep in their half and he'll be threat around the box with his passing and shooting.

    Weren’t you one of those who laughed at me when I wishlisted Mourinho?

    That move is straight out of his playbook.

    The further forward you play him, the worse he gets imo. Play him as the deepest midfielder and surround him with passers who will bring the ball forward while Torreira is occupied with the defensive side of the game.

    Started off as a winger didn't he? Not sure where the idea has come from that he can't play further forward. Not that I would prefer him there, mind.

    I’d never laugh at you lad. I’d have rolled out the red carpet for Zippy and Bungle to manage us in the bitter end. Torreira has the flare to be that man... Give him his wings and let him bang, I say.

    This post is a lump of sh1t, but not because it’s rubbish. It’s because flies will ‘like’ it.
